A few years ago, my cat got out of the house, met someone who was randomly walking by, and followed that person home down the block. From there the woman who was followed sat down on the porch and scratched my cat, giving her the attention she was craving. Eventually our cat left and came home after getting the scratches that she wanted. You would think that our cat gets no attention, yet she gets bathed in it every day. Some cats are sociable like that, and some prefer to hide out under the bed. Regardless of personality, some pets don’t have a person to scratch them, and that’s where you can help.

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.
