In honor of Red October, this week’s pet of the week is Ozzie. He is an 8-year-old sweet-natured cat. He enjoys playing or napping on top of things such as scratching posts and card board boxes. He also has a favorite toy, a bird on a string. He enjoys jumping and trying to catch it as it flies through the air, using his defensive talents (much like the baseball player he is named after). Ozzie is a favorite among the FIV felines at Five Acres animal shelter. He is patiently waiting for his forever home. Stop in and visit Ozzie anytime Tuesday through Friday 2-6pm or Saturday and Sunday noon-6pm. He’s a winner!
