I saw the balance of power shift in my house this week. My cat, who was always the alpha cat before my husband and I got married and moved in together, must have decided that she was going to take back the reigns of leadership. Though the cats have known each other for years, she’s been more on the timid side around the other one, until I watched her hover over the other cat as she was eating some kitty treats. See, my cat had finished hers but wanted more, and the other cat glared at mine before deciding it wasn’t worth the fight and abandoned the treats. I sat in awe watching the transaction take place. Some pets don’t have their own place where they can be the alpha, 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.
