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.

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.
