WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- Washington Animal Rescue League has a new Pet Of The Week!
Checkmate is a 2-year-old domestic shorthair mix whose name suits him to a T. He is one smart kitty, who knows how to sit on command and even give a high-five (with the proper edible motivator).
WARL says Checkmate is something of a private eye who enjoys investigating his environment. He also loves toys, particularly wand toys.
Although he likes the company of some other cats, he can be overly assertive with them so he would probably do best as a "one and only."
If you're looking for an intellectual feline to share your life, stop by the Washington Animal Rescue League and meet Checkmate.
