Arlington Pet of the Week: Memphis

Meet your newest Pet of the Week, Memphis. This 16-year-old Rosslyn resident lives a life of luxury. Each Friday, she dons her tux and enjoys seafood hors d’oeuvres.

Learn more about Memphis and her life in Arlington:

Memphis is a 16 going on 17-year-old rock star! After a relatively inconsistent life of being shuffled from shelters and foster homes, this beauty now has a permanent residence in Rosslyn with her mom, a graduate student at Georgetown University.

The two were introduced online over a Zoom meeting during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it was love at first sight. Despite her life hardships, Memphis maintains a kind and compassionate disposition toward everyone. Other than being a poster child for the term “hangry” in the mornings, she loves to explore her surroundings when her curious streak kicks in (especially when mom brings home some new plants or flowers).

She was born with a built-on tuxedo so during a typical Friday evening, you can find her at cocktail hour, devouring some luxurious hors d’oeuvres, particularly fish/shrimp-based, and engaging in some poker or blackjack. When she’s not too busy living the high life, Memphis loves to relax with family and friends! She enjoys getting belly rubs, being consistently complimented on her cuteness, and ending the night with some cuddles.

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.
