As one of our cats gets older, he makes a bigger production out of getting attention. He won’t just walk up to us and wait to get petted, he’ll walk up to us, meow very loudly as though he was yelling, and then waits for the coming scratch. Of course we humor him, he’s pretty hard to ignore. Even though it’s annoying at times, he’s an awesome pet and a fantastic television-watching companion. Some pets don’t have a family to meow at or bark at, 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.
