SPARKY'S DRUG OF CHOICE: GRASS
No, not that kind of grass! Sparky's favorite "happy weed" is wheatgrass. You can buy it in the produce department of grocery stores and as a dietary supplement in health food stores. Most folks, especially juicers, extol its nutritional benefits. Sparky considers it a gourmet delight, even better than catnip.
I bought a little planter of wheatgrass for Sparky last week and she went totally bonkers over it. I mean really bonkers! At first I kept it at my desk in order to monitor her intake and make sure that this new introduction to her diet didn't cause any digestive upsets.
I needn't have worried. A cat that steals the dogs' food, loves Brussels sprouts and pizza, and regularly gnaws on things that shouldn't be gnawed upon, would naturally have no problems with wheatgrass. A look of such bliss crosses her face when she's grazing on her wheatgrass that it's a sight to behold.
When I carry it to the kitchen for a good soaking under the faucet, Sparky follows me with anxious meows and loud admonishments. Be careful! Don't bruise the grass! It needs more sunlight! You're overwatering it!
Health food nuts consider wheatgrass a superfood. Sparky quite agrees with them!
