I’ve created a monster. She’s a seven pound cat. She was having some medical issues and was placed on a soft cat food diet, and once her problems cleared up it was still suggested that she stay on the food. Every time I walk into the kitchen, she follows me and meows in anticipation, waiting to be fed. It doesn’t matter that she was literally fed five minutes ago and didn’t finish what was in her bowl, she wants more. It can be annoying, but I’m happy to put up with it if it means she’s healthy. Some pets don’t have a kitchen to follow someone in to because they don’t have a forever home. 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.
