Arlington Pet of the Week: Fetch

Say “hi” to Fetch, Arlington’s latest Pet of the Week. Fetch is a playful cat who, like his name suggests, likes to play fetch.

Here’s what Fetch’s human had to say about his life in Courthouse:

Meet Fetch, who relocated to Courthouse all the way from Warsaw, Poland, in March.

As his name suggests, he loves to “fetch” anything that gets thrown, from scrunched up pieces of paper to floss picks and toy mice.

He often thinks he’s in “The Matrix” and will run up the walls at full speed before bouncing off them sideways and then gracefully landing on his feet.

Fetch also loves to sunbathe, partake in a bath, drink from the kitchen tap and visit his uncle over in Shaw, D.C.

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!

We are also looking for local pets who look like their owners or like celebrities. Email us photos of your pet and their doppelgänger, explaining the resemblance and whether it has been noticed in your neighborhood.
