Animal Veggie Addict: Haru the Corn loving cat

Addicted to Veggies is so excited to boast another new Animal Veggie Addict friend!!

Meet Haru the handsome tabby. 
Haru’s love for veggies is a special story. When Haru made a trip to the dentist to have a routine teeth cleaning the anesthesia caused him to become very sick, and a loss of appetite was the cause of great concern to his loving owners. After failed advice from the vet, by chance a can of corn was opened...the rest became Animal Veggie Addict history. Haru was hooked on the starchy vegetable and has since been eating to his hearts content, like a Kitty/horse! Making a speedy recovery from his trip to the Dentist, of course.

Now when his owner boils corn on the cobb Haru comes running excitedly, his eyes wide, and his paws lovingly batting for attention. We asked Haru if there was a site or earth friendly cause that he would like to raise awareness too, and he eagerly told us to visit his friends over at The Peninsula Humane Society --- these wonderful people are responsable for placing Haru in the loving home that he has today. Also a word of thanks to Haru’s owner for contacting us at AtV. We’re so happy to tell his story, and look forward to making many more Animal Veggie Addict friends.

If you have a furry, feathered, scaly, or "other" animal friend that would like to be a part of the Addicted to Veggies campaign please email us your photos. Try to include a fruit or vegetable in the picture, as well as a little bit of information along with the photo, i.e.; animal's name, favorite fruit or veggie, and a fun fact, tid-bit, or story.
We look forward to *hopefully* featuring a new animal every week in our upcoming special "Animal Veggie Addicts" section.
