This past week I saw history in the making. My cat, Dippy, was the alpha female in my home before my husband and I got married. When we combined our homes, his two cats let Dippy know who was boss, and she was a different animal. Now that the alpha cat is old and on his last leg, Dippy has decided that she will be the alpha when the other passes. This was made clear when she scared our third cat away from her snacks this week and stole them for herself. It was amazing to watch her take on the dominant role, and I have to admit that I was a little proud of her. Animals truly are amazing. Not all pets have a guardian to amaze, 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.
