Reston Pet of the Week: Edie

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Edie, an older cat looking for a forever home as her owner had to go into assisted living. Here is what the Feline Foundation of Greater Washington has to say about her:

Purrfect companion and videogame partner!

If love could be packaged, it would come wrapped in fur. Brown tabby and white fur, to be exact. And FFGW’s got it! Love = Spice Girl a/k/a Spicey a/k/a Edie, her current and favorite name.

Although her life has been long and rich already, Edie has plenty in reserve to share with you. Edie came into foster care when her dad, a long time FFGW volunteer, had to enter assisted living. She made the adjustment from a multicat household to being an only child as if born for the role.

Her foster mom is a graduate student, and, as you can see from the photo below, Edie is an excellent study partner. She is also a practitioner of meditation (or napping), and an avid player of feline video games. Most of all, Edie is a friendly, loving companion eager to open her heart to you, to climb into your lap and cuddle.

Edie doesn’t believe in calendars, and talk of her age bores her. But we do have to tell you that she has been examined by our vet from the tip of her pink nose to the last hair on the tip of her tail and been pronounced in excellent health.

Are you and Edie a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you $100 in Becky’s Bucks, as well as some treats.
