A stray cat has been coming to our back door recently. It’s a cute cat that seems to be taken care of, but I wonder where it lives or if it even has a home. I haven’t been able to get close to it, though it did talk to me the other day. If only I could speak cat. It’s important to keep your animals safe, and a roaming pet is in danger from a number of factors. Please think before letting your animal roam free. Some pets don’t have a home to go to, 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.
