We have a cat that really likes to “help.” When I’m trying to write something or pretty much do anything that requires both hands, she’s at the ready to sit on my paper, my hands, or both. Perhaps she thinks that if my hands aren’t petting her, they shouldn’t be doing anything. It’s annoying, but it’s cute at the same time, and she totally gets away with it. Some pets don’t a home to call their own, or a person who will put up with their oddities, 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.

Nod is a small female kitten. Because of her age she loves to play a lot, but she’ll nap just as hard as she plays. She loves hanging out with people, chasing after the occasional bug, and hanging out in bowls. Nod hasn’t been spayed yet, but she’s up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Nod is still looking to find her place in this world and would love for it to be at your house. Swing by to meet her today, she’ll be waiting for you!

Bear is a small male puppy and only a couple of months old. He’s a Golden Retriever mix so he’ll get bigger, but for now he loves to play and hang out in your lap. Just like Nod, he has a lot of energy but crashes hard, and he’s learning and figuring things out quickly. Because of his age he isn’t neutered yet, but he is up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Bear would love to find a place in your home, so come by and introduce yourself!
