My cat is not happy with me. She’s just been diagnosed as having a hyperactive thyroid, so the vet has prescribed pills. For the first few days it was pretty easy getting her to take the pills, which surprised me because as she gets older she has fought me more and more on the pill issue. Last night, however, was an epic battle. Regardless, I’ll continue to battle her because I want her healthy. Some pets don’t have a person battling for 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 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.

Cammy is a medium sized, female, grey and black shorthair tabby cat. She’s just over one-year-old and has lots of energy for play, but she still understands the value of a good nap. She’s a little bit shy at first but she warms up rather quickly and loves a great scratch under the chin. She’s spayed, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Cammy is still really young and looking for her forever home, so stop by to see if you’re a perfect fit!
