Pet of the Week: Stormy

Becky's Pet Care

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 Stormy, who enjoys her life in North Reston.

Here is what Stormy’s owner, Lisa, had to say about her:

Stormageddon the Dark Lord of All (Stormy for short) is our 4.5-year-old Ragdoll cat. My husband and I named after an obscure Doctor Who reference, but to less nerdy parties we say it was because the summer got her was the stormiest one we’ve seen. As the runt of her litter, she weighs in at a lean and mean 9 pounds with a personality that busts at the seams.

Her meow is worse than her bite. Literally. Two years ago, Stormy had to have every single last tooth removed, otherwise a degenerative gum disease was going to take her life. This small setback hasn’t stopped her from being the alpha in the house. She still bites (gums) at toys and wants no special treatment as she still eats dry food and treats.

Stormy demands belly rubs whenever she sees you, but her preference is to run away to the stair landing, flop over and receive the pets there. She is finicky and fastidious and friendly to a fault.

She spends her day perfecting the cat “trill” we all love, lounging just out of arm’s reach, and bossing around her cat brother Sokka, who is one year younger, 4 pounds bigger, but knows his place.

You can see it in her face — Stormy suffers no fools.
