We adopted Indie from the Erath County Humane Society; the shelter is at capacity and needs help.

Indie's favorite place in the world is my lap, but I'm not complaining.

It’s been six months since Indie became a Vanden Berge.

I adopted my sweet girl from the Erath County Humane Society in March, and today, she is fully adjusted to her new home and attached to me at the hip.

I’m not kidding.

This cat has serious separation anxiety. The Husband begs her for attention; bribing her with treats and trying to get her to sit next to him.

But no can do.

Indie struggles with trust and feels safe when she is curled up on my lap, which is fine during the day, but not so great at night. (We are working on it.)

If The Husband didn’t keep me in check, I could easily become The Cat Lady.

Today, there are dozens of dogs and cats that need families like us that are willing to adopt.

ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News that the shelter is still over capacity, something she believes will continue to be a trend.

“I’m pretty sure we’ll always be over capacity, but the good news is that we are not at 300% anymore,” she said. “We were slammed last week with lots of adoptions and fosters.”

The shelter, however, still needs help.

The large number of animals has put a crunch on supplies and it needs adult dry and canned food, puppy and kitten food, milk replacer for kittens, bleach and paper towels.

And, of course, they always need people to step up and adopt or foster an animal.

Take it from me; it will be one of the most gratifying things you’ll ever do!

The shelter is located at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
