BARC's Cat of the Week Dares You to Adopt It

Friday brings another pair of allegedly adoptable pets from BARC and Mayor Annise Parker. And if you think you're bored with the routine, you've got nothing on today's Cat of the Week, Mason.

What could his expression here be saying? a) "What're you looking at, loser?" b) "Forget it -- she's mine." c) "Yeah. Like I'd go home with you." d) "Swear to God, you take one more fucking picture..."

Of course, you could just argue that it's all standard cat posing and attitude.

BARC, naturally, says Mason's a jewel:

Mason is a beautiful kitty with striking eyes and unique black and white markings. He is a very sweet boy and deserves a great new home. Mason is a 10-month-old Domestic Medium Hair mix. He is a pretty large kitty that loves to watch the rain and birds outside the window. He gets along well with other cats and loves to be held and groomed. Mason is neutered, has age-appropriate vaccinations, has a pre-registered microchip with lifetime registration and a one-year city license. Mason's BARC ID is A1103088.

BARC is using some offsite locations this weekend in an attempt to lure adopters. On Saturday they will be at the Galleria, across from the Gap, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.; at the Copperfield Petco on Highway 6 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and the PetSmart at 290 and Hollister from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

On Sunday look for them at the Petco at Westheimer and Wilcrest from 1 p.m. To 5 p.m.
