My cat has recently lost weight. When I took her to the vet to get her checked out, he did a test and discovered that her liver isn’t functioning normally, so we put her on a special diet in an effort to fatten her up and hopefully get her liver to function as it should. Though it’s only been a few days, she seems to be feeling better and has been dutifully eating when I put her food in front of her. The experience has made me realize just how much I want to keep her around. Some pets don’t have a person to care for them and fight to keep them around, 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.

Scarlet Kitten

Scarlet Kitten is a medium sized female tabby cat. She’s still young so she has plenty of energy, but she’s a very loving cat and loves to hang out on your lap. Her perfect day would likely involve a nap on your lap, a nap in the sun, some kibble to snack on, maybe a little catnip, and then another nap before playing with you. She’s up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Scarlet Kitten would love to find her forever home, and you may be the perfect fit. Swing by to meet her!
