The other day I went shopping for my cats at a local pet store. I planned to buy one toy and maybe some catnip, yet I walked out with a few toys and a comfy cat bed. The bed is small and was intended for the smallest of our cats, but she rejected the bed when she was introduced to it. Instead, the fattest of our cats has taken a liking to it, sleeping with her head jammed into the bed and most of her body outside of it. They're happy, but some pets don't have a family who will buy them silly pet beds or toys. That's where you come in.

The Humane Society shelters pets, gets them the care they need, gives them the love they’re craving, and does their best to place them in permanent homes. Whether you’re looking for an lazy dog who prefers a quiet walk to play, or a cat who chases toys, chances are the Humane Society will have your perfect match.

May I present our pets of the week. If you’d like to see them in person or get more information on these pets or any other pets that the Humane Society has, check them out online here or call 940-855-4941. They’re located at 4360 Old Iowa Park Road in Wichita Falls.
