You’ll win over Marius-the-cat with a little love, but Trucker likes his freedom.
Marius, a 10-month-old female domestic shorthair tuxedo cat, is one of this week’s featured pets up for adoption at the Erath County Humane Society.
“She is very timid and is still getting used to people,” ECHS executive director Serena Wright told Beneath the Surface News. “Her first instinct is to run, but if you start petting her, she’ll never want you to stop.”
Marius doesn’t like being held and will do best in a home without small children, but she does love a comfy bed with a little nook to hide in.
Marius is spayed, fully vaccinated, microchipped and litter box trained.
Weighing in at 95 pounds, Trucker is a four-year-old male German Shepherd Husky mix that enjoys the outdoors.
“He is a big, goofy boy and hates being cooped up,” Serena said. “Trucker is friendly and very independent. He likes to roam and can get out of our six-foot chain link fence.”
Trucker actually managed to escape, once, and took off on an adventure. The person who found him said he rode with him on a Gator, helped him feed cows and hung the house until he was brought back to the shelter.
Trucker has been neutered, vaccinated and is heartworm negative and on prevention.
If you would like to meet Marius, Trucker or the other 41 cats and 68 dogs that need homes, stop by the animal shelter located at 891 East Road in Stephenville.
