Allow us to introduce you to this week's Pet of the Week from the Vanderburgh Humane Society.

Meet Tia!

Who doesn’t love a classic tabby cat? Once you meet me, you definitely will! My name is Tia and I’m a 4-month-old female. You can find me hanging out in the open cat room at the VHS! I have the sweetest little meow and will respond when you talk to me. Think your current cat needs a friend? I would make an excellent companion for them! I love everyone I meet and would really enjoy having friends around during the day. To be honest, I would also be perfectly content being your first cat ever! I’m adaptable and would do great in any living situation, as long as it’s forever. My adoption fee is $80 and includes my spay, microchip, and age-appropriate vaccinations. Apply at or visit me at the Vanderburgh Humane Society!

From grazing Tibetan antelope to migrating monarch butterflies, these 50 photos of wildlife around the world capture the staggering grace of the animal kingdom.
