February 2017's Pet of the Month is Arlo!


Liz Jennings and Theran Steindl

How old is he?

1 & 1/2 years old

How did he come into your life?

We got Arlo from a Bengal breeder in Milwaukee. We were in search of a hypoallergenic cat to join our family and Arlo fit the bill!

Significance of his name, if any:

We thought Arlo was the name that suited him best.

Favorite treat:

Whipped cream is his favorite treat. Vanilla ice cream is a close second.

Most memorable thing your pet has ever done:

Arlo fills the role of sous chef in our household. He requires a bar stool be pulled up whenever we are preparing food in the kitchen so he can supervise and to ensure everything is cooked properly.

Funny or unusual habit:

Arlo enjoys playing fetch with a select few select toys.

If your pet had a job/profession, what would it be?

Arlo would own and operate his own whipped cream factory.

If your pet could speak one sentence out loud, what would he say?

Give me more whipped cream!!!

Anything else you’d like to share:

While on car rides, Arlo likes to relax in the back window by listening to the Grateful Dead. He must be involved in everything that goes on around the house. He even requires his own place at the dinner table, where he sits politely and watches from his own chair. Arlo is constantly keeping us on our toes and getting into mischief. Although sometimes a handful, he is very special to us and we wouldn’t trade him for the world.
