Meet Grace, this week’s Pet of the Week. Grace is a playful, talkative kitty who’s ready to show her new human lots of affection.

Here’s what Grace’s friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team have to say about her:

Grace is a playful, energetic and lovable cat. She enjoys tossing her play mice in the air and leaping up to catch them. She is incredibly chatty and loves to meow for treats, attention and pets. Her favorite place to snuggle up is right beside you on the couch or in bed. She is a sucker for cat nip and loves to eat it and roll around in it.

Grace is very affectionate and often head butts for ear rubs and chin scratches. She enjoys sitting near a window and chirping at birds as they fly by. She is very acrobatic and loves to leap onto her cat tree and other high places to be the queen of her castle. Grace thrives in an environment where she can be the only kitty to receive all the love and affection.

Are you and Grace the perfect match?

Meet Reston’s latest Pet of the Week, Robbie. He had a tough past, but, even so, this sweet boy is trusting and is ready to make new friends (human and dog!).

Here’s what Robbie’s friends at NOVA Pets Alive! had to say about him:

Everyone loves Rob, and Rob loves everyone!

This sweet boy’s story will break your heart. He was tied outside to starve with several other dogs, some of which sadly didn’t make it. When we first met Rob he was skin and bones. It was hard to believe such a neglected dog could still be so trusting and sweet after all he was put through.

We sent Rob to an amazing foster family who nursed him back to health, and they have nothing but love for their sweet hound dog. Rob is housebroken, good with other dogs, good with kids, and loves going for a nice long walk.

Rob’s foster mom says: “He is a darling dog, super friendly with everyone. He’s made several people and doggie friends in the neighborhood and would do great with kids and a dog buddy. Rob is an absolute delight of a dog and whoever adopts him will be sooooooo lucky!”

Are you and Robbie the perfect match?

Meet Reston’s latest Pet of the Week, Shadow. This week girl is gentle, calm and affectionate.

See what her friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about her:

Shadow is an affectionate cat any household would be lucky to have. She is very sweet, in a gentle and calm sort of way. True to her name, she will follow you around wherever you go, asking for attention. Shadow is not a clingy or up-in-your-face snuggler, though. She will sit beside you on the floor and occasionally the couch or chair and just ask for neck scratches.

One of Shadow’s favorite things to do is lay her head on your foot while you sit and just fall asleep, comforted by your touch. Shadow does like to play, but it isn’t usually for very long. She will not demand to play or to receive love and has a quiet, peaceful presence.

Shadow will greet you with a meow whenever you enter the door, a warm welcome and some affection. She will purr even before you touch her and soaks in all of the attention given. Shadow would do well in a less chaotic, quieter home where she can receive attention but will do fine being left alone for a few hours.

Are you and Shadow the perfect match?

Meet Mr. Ginger, Reston’s latest Pet of the Week. Mr. Ginger is a sweet, gentle 14-year-old fella looking for a quiet home.

Here’s what his friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about him:

Mr. Ginger is a tall 14-year-old kitty with a sweet, gentle personality. He willingly adjusts to petting, combing, trimming (his claws) and even vet check-ups. He likes to lean in to have his muzzle stroked and combed and requests more attention with a gentle tap, tap, tap of his paw.

Mr. Ginger enjoys a quiet environment with a regular feeding and petting routine or curled up in a warm, cozy place in the company of his people. As an older cat, Mr. Ginger has a sensitive stomach, which has been managed well with a wet cat food specifically designed for sensitive kitty tums. Catching outdoor critters makes him sick, so indoors is best for Mr. Ginger. He also has a little arthritis in his right hip but is still quite spry and can jump up into a lap or chair.

Are you and Mr. Ginger the perfect match?

Meet Hank, Reston’s latest Pet of the Week. Hank is a quiet and gentle 11-year-old who will love sitting on your lap.

Here’s what Hank’s friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about him:

Hank is a quiet guy with the biggest heart. He would love to sit in your lap — if you help him up! Or he’s content with sitting in his comfy bed, near you, so he can be a part of the action. At 11 years old and super gentle, Hank loves being brushed and occasionally gets interested in shiny feather toys.

With a proper intro, Hank could live with another mellow cat, that minds their P’s and Q’s.

P.S. He’s a litter box champ! He’s just looking for a calm and quiet home with nice people who will dote on him in his golden years. He would benefit from a wet diet for his aging kidneys.

Are you and Hank the perfect match?

Meet Bella, Reston’s newest Pet of the Week. This sweet, gentle Boxer is estimated to be around 6 to 8 years old.

Here’s what her friends at Boxer Rescue and Adoption, Inc. had to say about her:

Bella is a very sweet, quieter dog who is a little reticent but warms up. She loves her creature comforts and is not destructive. She loves her crate, which is piled high with blankets.

She is gentle taking treats and the food bowl. We switched food when she broke out in hives, so that hasn’t been much of an issue lately. Bella would prefer a quieter home where she could spend time snuggling with her owner. She is happy to go outside but happier to be right back inside with you.

We don’t know how old Bella is, but she is probably a senior. When asked for a guess, the vet thought she was between 6 and 8, but because we don’t have long-term history on her, it is a guess.

Are you and Bella the perfect match?

Reston’s newest Pet of the Week is Rosa, a petite lady who is looking for a warm lap to nap on.

Meet sweet Rosa! This little lady is looking for her forever family. She loves to sit on laps for scratches or sleep in a warm lap.

Rosa is very petite girl, weighing only 5 pounds. She’s a good eater and has perfect litter box habits. Rosa would prefer not to share your affection with another cat as she thinks she deserves all the pets!

She’s truly an amazing girl!

Are you and little Rosa the perfect match?

Reston’s Pet of the Week is Pav, an easy-going 4-year-old kitty who loves to play.

Here’s what his friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about him:

4-year-old Pav is curious and confident and loves exploring his environment. In the morning he loves watching birds from a safe distance, pouncing on his toys, and jumping into boxes and hiding. He’s playful and energetic. When it’s time to settle down, he likes long afternoon naps in a sunny window and will keep you warm during the nights on a warm, soft bed.

Pav is friendly and well socialized and gets along well with everyone from young kids to big dogs. He is an easy-going cat and loves being engaged. He is healthy, with full shots, neutered, microchipped, and no health issues.

He would like to be an only cat.

Are you and Pav the perfect match?

Meet Quincy, Reston’s latest Pet of the Week. Quincy is a sweet 2-year-old mix who’d make the perfect running or hiking companion.

Here’s what his friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about him:

Quincy is a sweet 2-year-old German Shepherd/American Staffordshire Terrier mix. He loves going to dog parks where he can exercise those legs. He loves his humans and would do best in a home where he’s the sole recipient of your affection! He does best with older children. Quincy has an average activity level and  likes to go on 2-3 walks a day. He’d be a great running and hiking companion. He’d love nothing more than to find his forever home!

Are you and Quincy the perfect match?

Reston’s Pet of the Week is Twinkles, a short-haired cat who’s spent the past year in a West Virginia shelter awaiting her forever home.

Here’s what she told her friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team:

Hi y’all! My name is Twinkles. I am a sweet, vocal, loud purring, snuggly tuxedo cat from West Virginia. I came to the Fancy Cats Rescue Team after spending over a year in a West Virginia shelter. (Can you believe it?!)

Right now I am enjoying spending time with my foster family and getting a well-deserved, relaxing reprieve from shelter life. Within less than a week, I have become a snuggle bug to my foster mom. I chirp to greet my housemates when they enter the room!

I am 3 years old, female and in good health. I would do well with other kitties or as an only cat. If you wish to learn more about me, you can fill out an adoption application online, and/or check out my Instagram @twinkles_little_cat.

Are you and Twinkles the perfect match?

Reston’s Pet of the Week is Leeta. She’s available for adoption locally.

Here’s what her friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team have to say:

Meet Leeta! This poor baby has had a rough start to her life. Her previous “owners” kept Leeta locked in a crate outside without showing her the slightest bit of kindness. Luckily for Leeta, Fancy Cats & Dogs came along to rescue her! Leeta is a very happy girl who is always smiling even when she sleeps.

She is crate trained well and, as long as she can see you, she does not cry, whine or bark while in the crate. She has some training going as she knows basic commands and minds well while on a walk. She seems to learn routines well.

Leeta’s foster thinks she would thrive in a loving home where she is the only pet. She craves so much attention and love that she’d prefer not to share you!

She loves to run and would love a running companion! Toys that squeak and crinkle are her favorites.

Are you and Leeta the perfect match?

Meet Uma and Circus, 10-year-0ld kitties who are available for adoption locally.

Here’s what their friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about them:

Uma and Circus were pulled when their time was up at a Maryland shelter. Big boy Circus is calm and loves being pet. He’s very easygoing and may seem slightly hesitant at first but quickly warms up and then shows you what a social but gentle giant he is. Circus is a playful guy if you initiate it and is happy to catch the feather wand over and over again.

His pal, Uma, is a sleek house panther and takes her playing very seriously. Once you give her the feather toy, she will not let go of it — it’s HERS! She’s a very chatty girl, and if you can get a very fun dialogue going with her, she will keep responding! While Uma is a very social lady, she does have a diva side, so it’s important to know when she is overstimulated by too much playing or petting. (A thumping tail on any cat is a sure sign!) These 10-year-olds are housed at our adoption center at the Chantilly PetSmart.

Are you, Uma and Circus the perfect trio?

Pet of the Week: Ike

Ike, a sweet 4-month-old pup, is Reston’s latest Pet of the Week.

Here’s what Ike’s friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about him:

Meet Ike! This sweet 4-month-old mixed breed puppy is a fun-loving, dual eye color boy who gets along with everyone (human and dog) he meets. This boy is well on his way to house training, and you will love the way he prances when he sees you. He loves a good game of fetch, and if you need someone to cuddle up with, he’s your guy. He enjoys hanging outside, exploring his surroundings and playing with his toys.

Are you and Ike the perfect match?

Pet of the Week: Scott

Meet Reston’s newest Pet of the Week, Scott. Scott is a friendly guy who’s just looking for his scratcher-in-chief.

Here’s what his friends at Fancy Cats Rescue Team had to say about him:

Scott is a little bit shy at first, but once he knows he’s home, he wants to tell you all about it!

He’s got a big loud meow and a bigger purr. He likes to be petted and held. He loves to play with string toys — or really any toys. He doesn’t need constant attention and will settle in for a nap or a bird watch when you’re busy with other things. This young man is ready for action when you’ve got a spare moment! He’s great with the litter box and loves a good ear scratch.

Will you be his scratcher-in-chief and give this little love bug a forever home?

Are you and Scott the perfect match?
