Homeward Animal Shelter has begun a weekly feature called “Pet of the Week.” Each week, one of the shelter animals will have a reduced adoption fee and have fun facts posted about them on the shelter’s Facebook page.
This week’s pet is the handsome and exuberant Mustache. Though he’s nine years old, his personality and energy level are that of a kitten. He loves being the center of attention, so he’d prefer to be the only animal in the house, and wouldn’t fare well with children either. But he’s not hard to please—all it takes to win Mustache over is a good ear scratch, and maybe some wheatgrass for him to munch on.
Despite being carnivorous, cats generally enjoy eating grass. Specialized brands of wheatgrass are sold specifically for pets, as a means to stimulate digestive health and blood circulation. If a cat has consumed a poisonous or inedible substance, or has trouble throwing up a hairball, wheatgrass can help them regurgitate and get rid of the toxins in their body. It can also help with constipation.
If you’re not sure about wheatgrass, contact your veterinarian before buying any for your pet.
Mustache is housetrained, not declawed, and up to date with vaccines. For more information, call Homeward Animal Shelter at 701-239-0077.
