The Pet of the Week is Silver, an affectionate kitty who recently arrived from Afghanistan.
Here’s what her friends at 4Paws Rescue Team had to say about her:
Silver is one of the cats who recently arrived from Afghanistan. This exotic-looking blue-grey beauty is an extremely affectionate lap cat.
Silver’s foster mom likens her to an affectionate leopard cat — big and playful. She loves to show off her hunt-and-capture skills with mice and feather toys.
Silver is still getting used to living in a safe and comfortable indoor environment in a brand new country. This expat girl has a great appetite and good litter box habits. She is still learning how to be careful with her claws.
In her foster home, there is a resident cat, and although she hasn’t yet been introduced to him, she does show interest when she hears him. The 4Paws website has helpful information about introducing a new cat into a household with other pets here. Silver would certainly do fine as an only pet, so she could enjoy the love exclusively.
Silver came to 4Paws from the Kabul Small Animal Rescue organization in Afghanistan. She is one of about a dozen or so that 4Paws is helping to find adoptive homes. Silver’s estimated birth date is February 2018. She is spayed, current on vaccinations, has tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and is microchipped.
Are you and Silver the perfect match?

Chris Green is one of the DMV’s finest fitness instructors. A Lululemon and South Block ambassador, he is a coach and mentor to so many. He embodies grace, positivity and motivation in ways that no one else can. If we could all learn a thing or two from him, the world would be a much better place. He does so much for others, and does so with a smile on his face 99% of the time.
He recently ruptured his Achilles and has an incredibly long and tough journey ahead. As if COVID hadn’t impacted fitness professionals enough, throw this in the mix and it’s a double, even triple whammy. CG is no longer able to work and do what he loves for the time being because of this and we’d love your support.
