Pet of the Week: “…We get to spend our workday watching Ember sleep in all sorts of ridiculous positions.”

“Ember is a 2-month-old “Mosaic” Chinchilla. Chinchillas are crepuscular, most active during twilight hours, so we get to spend our workday watching Ember sleep in all sorts of ridiculous positions, but our favorite is when he cuddles with his best friend “Purple-Chin”. Chinchillas are social animals so once he’s old enough we’ll be bonding Ember to our older male chinchilla Ash. Chinchillas are the softest mammal on earth and can also jump up to 6 feet! When they get excited chinchillas will bounce all around their habitat and do parkour off of any walls or ledges available!”

Pet of the Week: “She is a very social cat and when ever anyone sees her they compliment her leopard-like spots.”

“Luna is an energetic Bengal kitten. She loves playing with our dog Ali running around the house and snuggling up with family. She is very smart and we often find her watching us and then trying to do the same thing. She is a very social cat and whenever anyone sees her they compliment her leopard-like spots. She is very affectionate and always is with us.”

Pet of the Week: “He’s always happy to learn new tricks, unless he’s trying to sleep.”

“Mosby is an 8-year-old bassador (basset hound and lab mix) who loves cuddles, zucchini (weird, right!), and naps. He’s always a little bit anxious because he was mistreated in previous homes – he’s a rescue – but still loves meeting new people. He’s always happy to learn new tricks unless he’s trying to sleep. He has a really big bark and absolutely despises the mailman. He’s just an angel!”

Pet of the Week: “She enjoys eating, napping, and running laps around her cage.”

“Maple is an adorable two-year-old guinea pig with a talent for mischief. Carrots, salad, and occasional tomatoes are her favorite foods. She enjoys eating, napping, and running laps around her cage. She is a noisy squeaker when hungry (which is most of the time) and her most defining feature is her naturally fluffy “mohawk”.”

Pet of the Week: “He was very lonely without Gus, his bro.”

“Bruno is a 7-year-old Maine coon, that enjoys scratches, cuddles, and naps. He is a love bug and a momma’s boy for sure. He was raised with another cat, Gus who passed in 2019. He was very lonely without Gus, his bro. So on Halloween, he got a new little sister, Buffy. She is a long-haired Russian Blue, who loves to play, play some more, and nap on daddy’s lap. These two are fast friends and can be found sleeping together or sitting on the couch with their parents. They both have their own Instagrams as well. Bruno is @bros_before_treats and Buffy is @iamlilbuffy!”

Pet of the Week: “He coos like a pigeon when announcing himself.”

“Pumpernickel (a.k.a. Nicky) just wants to be in the mix. He was adopted with his brother and sister, but quickly stood out as the chocolate velvet star. He coos like a pigeon when announcing himself, has a high-pitched meow for when he’s hungry, and a deep purr when he’s properly attended to. As kitty parents we recently came to realize that often his agitated whining isn’t for food or treats, but to be held in our arms where he purrs contentedly as he looks out from high above his kingdom. He is only five months old but already seeking big adventures. We hope we can keep him on his toes, and that, even when he’s all grown, he still lets us baby him from time to time.”

Pet of the Week: “She used to sit on my shoulder when she was a kitten when I was working from home.”

“Even though she looks like a full-blooded Siamese, Kitkat was an alley rescue cat along with two siblings who don’t look anything like her. She used to sit on my shoulder when she was a kitten when I was working from home. She loves people and will welcome them to our house by brushing their leg and angling for some petting or a scratch behind the ears.”

Pet of the Week: “Good luck getting her to give you a paw.”

“Meeko is an unemployed 3 year old Australian cattle dog mix that loves to cuddle. She loves a good scritch on the butt and will gladly “sit” for you, but good luck getting her to give you a “paw.” Any D.C. trail is a good place for her to release the zoomies, but the Rock Creek opening in Silver Spring is her go-to. Meeko will gladly run with you (or herd you) and then drop on her back for belly rubs. Don’t fall for it or you’ll gain another shadow.”
