Arlington Pet of the Week: Dorian

Becky's Pet Care

This week’s Arlington Pet of the Week is Dorian, an attention-loving cat approaching his tenth birthday.

Here’s what Dorian’s owner, Laura, had to say about him:

As Oscar Wilde wrote of his namesake, Dorian lives his life according to the motto: “The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.” As with that famous fictional character, our own Dorian Gray has a commissioned portrait except his only captures his sweet expression rather than reflecting his life of debauchery (aka the obscene number of treats he can eat in a day).

Our dapper boy was adopted from the DC Humane Rescue Alliance in 2014 at the mature age of 5 ½ years old and made himself right at home leaving tufts of fur all over the apartment, claiming the couch as well as the highest level of the cat tower as his favorite spots, and playing hide and seek with his owner by mostly hiding on top of or inside the kitchen cabinets.

Now belonging to a couple and living large in the Courthouse area of Arlington, Dorian serenely looks forward to his 10th birthday in November. Having adopted his owner’s better half, Dorian has a new favorite human to headbutt, request chin and tummy scratches, and squawk at for attention. Due to his chill personality, Dorian is always a big hit at social functions where he can get all the attention he’s ever desired!
