If you're in the market for cute, cuddly cats and kittens, then you're in luck: No Kill Houston and Frisky Paws Rescue are organizing an adoption drive Friday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., at 11173 Westheimer. (It's in the Whole Foods shopping center, by the Houston Cat Hospital).

"No Kill Houston organized this event because cats at [the Bureau of Animal Regulation and Care] have very few offsite adoption opportunities and very few cats are being adopted at BARC," No Kill Houston President Bett Sundermeyer stated in a press release.

Other rescue groups will participate as well, and they'll include as many "90 day" BARC cats -- those that are close to the end of the line -- as possible. So basically, if you don't adopt a 90-day cat, it will most likely be euthanized, and you'll be a total cat-killer. Just sayin'.

All the cats are spayed/neutered and have been vaccinated. Some of the groups will adopt out two cats for the price of one, and donations to help cover the cost of renting the space are mucho appreciated. Check out www.NoKillHouston.org for more details.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
