Pet of the week

September 24, 2005

Tiger is a male tabby cat who has been neutered. Affectionate and friendly, he is more than a year old and is known to give "head butts" when he wants attention. He also enjoys belly rubs.

Pet tip

Cats need to scratch. When a cat scratches, the old outer nail sheath is pulled off and the sharp, smooth claws underneath are exposed. Cutting a cat's nails every two to three weeks will keep the nails relatively blunt and less likely to harm the arms of both humans and furniture.

The Humane Society of Washington County is located at 13011 Maugansville Road. For more information on Tiger or other animals at the shelter, to request a volunteer application or to make a donation, call 301-733-2060.
