Pets like to play just as much as we do. Sometimes it’s an obvious game like fetch, but other times it’s a bit more subtle. One of my cats likes playing the “wall game.” If you have a cat you may play this but have a different name for it. Basically you hide behind a wall after catching your pet’s attention, then sneak a peek at her while she prepares to strike. Do this a few times until the attack takes place. I believe this to be great fun for my cat, but I’m not sure it would work with a dog. Some pets don’t have someone to play 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.
