February is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month, and with cold weather blanketing the area, we decided to feature three cats from the Stephens County Humane Society in lieu of hosting Take Out Tuesday this week.
One of the cats featured currently at the Stephens County Humane Society is Big Daddy, who hopes to join a list of successful adoptions.
Big Daddy is a tom cat, black in color and was surrendered with three female cats who were pregnant at the time and successfully had all of their kittens.
He has been neutered and currently lives his best life in the window perch in the cattery which has seen up to 10 cats adopted who have also previously claimed the perch.
According to the Stephens County Humane Society, Big Daddy is much calmer since his neuter surgery and is content with his surroundings.
The other two cats that the Stephens County Humane Society wanted to highlight included Patrick and Frost, who have been at the Stephens County Humane Society for a long time.
Patrick is an orange tabby male and Frost is a female. These cats have also been spayed or neutered, according to officials with the Stephens County Humane Society.
Currently, the Stephens County Humane Society is closed to the public due to the weather. They will reopen once it is safe to do so.
Staff is working hard to keep the animals comfortable with a lot of the animals staying in foster homes to keep warm during the cold spell.
The normal hours are noon-4 p.m. except on weekends, when hours are extended to 6 p.m.
Once the Stephens County Humane Society opens back up, they will be by appointment only and people can contact the shelter to set up the appointment by calling 580-252-7387.
