Pet of the Week: Arturo Berkeley, a sleek Persian and short-hair mix who loves his mom

Meet Arturo Berkeley, a black cat who’s inseparable from his watchful mama but not so enamored with the canine set.

Here is what Arturo’s friends at 4Paws Rescue Team have to say about the feline pair:

Meet Arturo, a beautiful “panther” who is bonded with his charming Mama, Belladonna. Together, they are eagerly looking for their forever home. The pair were rescued from the Berkeley County Humane Society in Martinsburg, WV when their owners living situation made it difficult to care for their pets.

Belladonna & Arturo love each other and to snuggle for naps and for the night. Both appreciate being brushed and are very outgoing and loving. Being a young cant, Arturo loves playing with anything he finds in his way, with his super Mama always attentively watching over hime. To be sure Arturo also finds time to enjoy the love and attention his foster family showers him with.

Arturo is ready to settle in his forever home with his Mama Belladonna and hopes to find one for the holidays. The duo can also join your home as fosters, if you want to learn more about them before considering adopting them, or to give them a loving foster home as they wait for their forever family to pick them up. Is there extra room in your home to welcome this sweet pair and to shower them with the love and protection they deserve?

Please email us if you’re interested in adopting or fostering Belladonna and Arturo. Be sure to include your phone number in your message. Please limit inquiries to the Greater Washington, DC area, except for barn cats.

Could your home be the perfect fit for this mother-son duo?
