Adopt Me! Handsome Sebastian Will Have You at Hello

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, meet Sebastian, a 1-year-old cat that was rescued from a feral cat colony earlier this year.

No one knows exactly how this sweet, social boy ended up in a cat colony, where felines tend to be far less socialized. It's believed he was somehow lost or dumped there, but in April he found his way to the Pound Animal Welfare Society of Montclair, New Jersey, and he hasn't looked back since.

This playful guy has found ways to keep busy while waiting for his forever home. "He will hang upside down on his cat condo for attention and to play," says Kristina Olszewski from PAWS. "He loves his feather toys and lives for his treats."

Darla was previously surrendered to a crowded city shelter after living in her owner's backyard where she rarely interacted with people.

Cairo isn't just a place in Egypt.

It's the name of Macklemore's cat – and by the looks of things, the singer adores his pretty kitty just as much as the ancient Egyptians loved their feline friends.

The female tabby has her own Instagram page, which is filled with photos of her doing the most paw-dorable things, like sleeping, cuddling with dad, more sleeping and stealing dad's bling (clearly, she has expensive taste).

Adopt Me! Homer Wants to Make Himself at Home with You

It's Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month, and in honor of the wonderful rescue cats out there, we're introducing you to felines-in-waiting all throughout June. Today, we'd like you to meet Homer, a talkative 8-year-old tabby currently being cared for by the Home at Last Rescue of Berkeley, California.

These are the eyes of a curious cat. Though he may be a bit shy at first, when he's given the chance to relax, Homer is easygoing and affectionate.

When he wants attention, Homer is happy to let you know. "He will purr to no end with a little encouragement," reads his Adopt a Pet bio. "He loves to have his head, ears and belly rubbed and will quickly melt into a belly flop to have his soft underside pet."
