My cat stands at the bathroom door while I’m showering. As soon as I’m done and the door is opened, he MUST get into the shower to lick up any “fresh” water. It doesn’t matter that he was given fresh water one hour prior, if I don’t open up that shower door he will stand in the bathroom and make noises loud enough to wake the dead. We know he likes this and accommodate him, just like we’ve come to discover he prefers ice cubes in his water. We accommodate that, too. Some pets don’t have a person that knows their likes and dislikes, 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.
