Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Boots, a handsome 6-year-old tabby who is destined to be an Instagram star.
This adorable guy has been at the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover, New Jersey, for quite a while after being plucked from an overcrowded shelter – and no one can figure out why.
"He is incredible: laid-back, friendly, affectionate, and likes other cats. He gives the best headbutts and loves to get massages," says development coordinator Abby Berenbak. "He has a fan following at the shelter where he is adored by the masses."

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."

It has been nine years since the synth-loving rock band sElf has released a new album, but they certainly know how to make up for lost time.

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 three: Darla, Gemini and Libra, a unique trio that needs to be adopted together.
Darla, a 2-year-old miniature Pinscher/Dachshund mix, came to the Humane Society Silicon Valley of Milpitas, California, with a common problem: She was terrified. 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).

Brian Russell Kirchoff loved cats.
So the San Rafael, California, real estate attorney did something purr-fectly nice when drawing up his will: he set aside some $800,000 for cats in need at the Marin Humane Society of Novato, California.
