One of my cats is an opportunist. He likes being around us, but he’ll go to whatever lap is likely to give him the most attention. When another cat is getting attention, he’s sure to appear out of nowhere, and if he’s not immediately petted he’ll be sure to let you know what he thinks of it. He’s figured out how to work the system and he does a pretty good job of it, proving that cats are indeed a smart animal. Some cats don’t have people to choose from in order to get the maximum amount of attention, 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.

Lucy is a medium size, adult, female, short-haired cat. She’s a pretty kitty and only a couple of years old, so she still has a lot of energy but also knows how to behave like a lady. She likes being around people and watching “Cat TV” through the window, and knows to never pass up a good lap when she sees it. She’s spayed, up-to-date on shots, heartworm tested and on preventative, and microchipped. Lucy is looking for a second chance and wants to find her forever home, so make plans to meet her! She’ll be happy to see you.

Vern is a medium size, adult, male, Australian Cattle Dog mix. At around four-years-old, he’s had a chance to get some of that puppy energy out of the way, but he still has plenty of energy to fetch and play. He loves being around people and other pets, and has a lot of personality that you’ll love getting to know. He’s neutered, up-to-date on shots and heartworm tested and on preventative. Vern is ready to find his forever home and can’t wait to meet you, so make plans to swing by to say hello!
