When we go away for a few days, one of my cats likes to give us the cold shoulder when we return. It doesn’t matter that we had someone stopping in to make sure her food and water dish were full, that she was given attention, and had someone to hang out with in the very few minutes she’s actually awake each day, she’ll still let us know how disappointed she is in our behavior when we return. She’ll sit just out of arm’s reach and stare at me, running off when I attempt to pet her. Then, after a few hours, she’ll approach me as though nothing was ever wrong and once again she’s my best friend. Some pets don’t have a best friend, 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 a 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.

Not to be confused with Mel, Gibson is a small, adult, male Chihuahua mix. At five-years-old, he still has plenty of energy but he calms down a lot more quickly than his puppy counterparts. He loves to play outside, take walks, hang out with people, and spend his time with you. He’s neutered, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Gibson is looking for a second chance and he can’t wait to meet you and your family. Swing by to meet him today!

Cheerio is a small, young, male, domestic short-hair mix. He’s an orange Tabby who’s just under a year old, and he loves being around people. This is a cat who isn’t shy, loves to play, gets along well with other cats, is curious about the world around him, and knows the pleasures of a fine nap. He’s neutered, up-to-date on shots and heartworm tested and on preventative. Cheerio is just starting out and would love to spend his time with you and your family. Come by to meet him and see if he’s the right fit for you!
