This morning I woke up to my cat chattering at the window. It might have been a bird or a squirrel that she was looking at, but whatever she saw, she was pretty excited about it. I've done a lot of research on what emotions cats feel, and excitement is one of them. They also have a lot of other emotions that humans feel, such as affection for other animals and their humans, pain, fear, anxiety, and depression among other emotions. Whether or not our pets "love" us the way that we feel love for them is up for debate, but when it comes to dogs, I have no doubt that they love their owners. Pets also enrich our lives and make a great addition to our households. Some pets don't have a home to express their feelings in, 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.
