Arlington Pet of the Week: Charlie and Tucker

Meet Charlie and Tucker (aka Chuck and Tuck), Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week.

Here’s what their mom had to say about this duo’s life of luxury in Ballston.

Charlie and Tucker live a posh life up in their Ballston apartment, lounging in their cat hammock, chasing lasers and using their custom-built poop hut.*

Charlie enjoys the simple things in life, sleeping his days away and finding a good box to squeeze into (provided by his Mom’s Amazon shopping addiction, of course). Tucker, on the other hand, is the baby of the family and lives a more active life, carrying around fuzzy toys while waiting for someone to play fetch with him or plotting his next sneak attack on his big brother. Together they live their frenemy lives as Tuck and Chuck, running around the apartment looking to wreak havoc on Mom’s Zoom meetings.

Both kitties are rescues from the NoVA area. Charlie is from the Arlington Animal Welfare League and Tucker from the NoVA SPCA.

*Poop hut is the term coined to describe the cabinet built by Mom and Dad to conceal the litter box. Is it a fancy cabinet, or is it a wooden structure to mask the smell…? Nobody will ever know.
