Every once in a while my cat likes to get under the covers while I’m sleeping. It’s never at a convenient time, like when I’m awake, but rather the middle of the night. She’ll scratch around the covers, poke her nose here and there, and then finally make her move. Unfortunately it also usually involves her scratching me at some point and waking me from my sleep. Even though it’s a little annoying, I’m okay with it because she just wants to hang out with me and find a comfortable place to sleep at the same time. Some pets don’t have a person to hang out with, 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.

He also likes cuddling in your lap, and warms up to people rather quickly. He’s been neutered, is up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Pauper is looking for his forever home and would love to be a part of your family. Stop by to meet him!
