If you want to find the bright side of things, a little bit of Church could help. And don’t worry — we’re talking about the eight-year-old tabby that’s up for adoption through the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.
“Church has an adorable little tongue that’s often sticking out, making every day with Church a #tongueouttuesday,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow in an email. “Her hobbies enjoy lounging in bed, being pet (especially in bed) and watching visitors and friends (from her bed).”
Church also loves tuna, Hardter said, and will rub her head up against you until you share.
Incidentally, the AWLS just released an infographic to help keep animals safe this winter. Tips include keeping pets inside during freezing temperatures, wiping off their paws after shortened walks, and giving them warm clothes to wear.
