Every once in a while I have this thought that if I bring home a toy for my cats, they'll be happy about it. Unfortunately, after going to the pet store and seeking out the "purrfect" toys, they play with them for about a minute and then move onto better things. One cat is much happier with a paper bag from the grocery store than she is for catnip, and the other is more fascinated by a balled-up piece of paper than any bird on the end of a string. I'll continue to purchase these toys anyway, with the hope that one day they'll be thrilled with their gifts. Some pets don't have a person who brings them toys and treats, and 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.
