Arlington Pet of the Week: Banjo

Arlington’s newest Pet of the Week is Banjo, a 1 year old cat who loves to chat with anyone around him.

Here is what Banjo’s owner had to say about his life here in Arlington:

We are very excited to introduce you to Banjo! Banjo is a recently minted Arlingtonian, arriving in the Arlington Mill neighborhood after being adopted from City Kitties this June. He is about 1 year old and is a classic Gemini with tons of personality.

Much like his namesake instrument, Banjo is a very vocal cat, and loves chatting with anyone around, whether that be the birds outside, reflections on the ceiling, his own reflection, and even on Zoom calls! Banjo is an endless ball of energy, and sometimes serves as our resident alarm clock. A little bit of a ditz, he is ultimately a sweetheart who loves to lick your face and share his stinky cat breath.

Banjo is one of many cats affected by feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV+), but this doesn’t get in his way one bit. He has an undeniable zest for life, and makes the most of his days watching the wildlife in the courtyard outside his window perch, playing with his wide cache of toys, and hiding in various nooks and crannies throughout the house.

Want your pet to be considered for the Arlington Pet of the Week? Email [email protected] with a 2-3 paragraph bio and at least 3-4 horizontally-oriented photos of your pet. Please don’t send vertical photos, they don’t fit in our photo galleries!
