Pet of the Week: Kevin

This is a sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care, a professional pet care service in Northern Virginia.

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Kevin, a kitten with a unique name.

Here is what her owner, Mark, had to say about her:

Kevin, just shy of being one year old, is female. My girlfriend and I clearly weren’t paying attention in anatomy class so many years ago. Kevin doesn’t care, though; she still responds to her name and saunters around the house like she would with any other name.

Kevin is a die-hard Orioles fan, often catching games with me on TV, but she’s pretty pessimistic about their playoff chances this year. When she gets heated about the games, I like to massage her back and neck and remind her that this is our burden to bear as Orioles fans.

Kevin reminds me a lot of myself, to be honest: she’s a bit shy in the face of change, but adapts well. We just moved into a three-level townhouse, which is quite the upgrade over the cramped condo we lived in before. It took Kevin a few days to venture out of the basement, but she’s up and running around now, chasing any insects that flutter their way into the house, and cuddling with us when we get home from work.

She holds a huge piece of my heart, and I’d have it no other way. She’s my baby kitty.
