A kittycat at the Harlem animal shelter

If you are thinkin about getting a cat, please take a look at cats from the city's animal shelters. The shelters are overcrowded with cats, and with the weather prevented many walk-ins interested in pets, the shelters may have to euthanize cats and kittens if homes are not found for them. A shelter spokesperson says, "The cats are beautiful. These are not nasty, sick alley cats. We're seeing Persians, Siamese, and domestic short hairs and long hairs in every color you can imagine." The three shelters are:
Manhattan: 326 E. 110th St., open for adoption Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 6 p.m., and Thursday from 2 to 8 p.m.
Brooklyn: 2336 Linden Blvd., open Wednesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Staten Island: 3139 Veterans Rd. West, open every day from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
