Pet of the Week: March 13, 2016

Willie enjoys one of his favorite pastimes: lounging on the couch. “He’s a little on the hefty side, and I blame it on all of his couch and nap time,” owner Megan Simpson said.

Named after musician Willie Nelson, Megan Simpson’s cat, Willie, is an outlaw in his own right (minus his namesake’s signature bandanna, which he adamantly refused).

Simpson says he’s a “stray that came to stay.”

That was more than seven years ago.

Since then, it’s become clear that Willie does what he wants to do ... whether that’s drinking out of the sink, chewing on cardboard or napping on the couch.

“He makes his own rules, and you have to admire him for it,” Simpson said.
