The Laziest Yet Loveliest: Simon the Cat Wins Pet of the Week


Celebrating Remarkable Pets: The Weekly Pet Spotlight

In a week filled with heartwarming and extraordinary tales of pets, from peculiar New Year’s routines to dogs receiving unique attention from their owners, we’ve witnessed the magic of the human-animal bond.

Each week, we bring you stories that celebrate the remarkable connection between pets and their owners. If you have a beloved pet that you believe deserves the title of Pet of the Week, read on to find out how you can participate.

The Spotlight Shines on Simon

This week, our Pet of the Week is none other than the beloved cat, Simon, owned by Lauren Jones. Simon’s journey from a kitten to his current status as a cherished family member is one filled with unique twists and turns.

Simon’s story begins with his mother, Patches, who appeared as a stray cat during a challenging time in Lauren Jones’ life. “My 88-year-old dad had a heart attack, three weeks after my cat had her kittens,” Jones shared. “I stayed every night at the hospital with him. After 24 days in the hospital, and weekly ER visits for dad, the kittens were getting pretty big. I totally wanted to rehome all but one but was only able to find homes for two. So, I kept the other three.”

Simon’s Unique Personality

Among those kittens was Simon, who would go on to become the star of this heartwarming tale. Today, Simon has seamlessly integrated into the family, and his unique personality has earned him the title of “the laziest cat ever.”
