One of our cats, if she could, would bark like a dog. She’s tried, but it sounds funny. If you have a cat you’ve probably heard the same noise coming from your furry friend while she watches the birds dance around the back yard. Mine will sit at the window, stare at whatever animal is hanging out beyond her reach, and she’ll chatter as though she’s barking. When she’s actually outside she’ll hunt those same animals, but unfortunately for her, they’re a little too quick for her. It’s just as well. I’d rather not have a “gift” left for me to clean up, even though it’s a nice cat gesture. Some pets don’t have a home to chatter 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.
