Cats are fickle creatures. They want to be petted when they want to be petted, they want to be left alone when they want to be left alone, and they’re sure to walk across your book or newspaper when it’s inconvenient. They don’t behave the same way dogs do, showing excitement when you walk through the door and wagging their entire bodies to show their happiness. Instead, they’ll sit in a corner and watch you and you never know what you’re thinking. That’s why it makes me so happy when I come home and find one of my cats walking to the door to greet me with their tail high in the air, showing me that they’re happy I’m there. Some pets don’t have someone coming home to them, 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.
