This Friday the Anjellicle Cats Rescue non-profit is hosting a Catbaret! And while we were disappointed to hear that there would be no live cats at the event... who can resist these faces? The event—which will include dinner, comedy, burlesque, song and dance celebrating "the feline qualities of life"—puts the focus on these three rescue kitties. Pickles, Bella, and Marilyn are just three of the cats in immediate danger of being euthanized. Click through to read their bios, provided to us by the shelter.

If you can't attend the event (held at the Laurie Beechman Theater, 407 West 42nd Street), you can adopt a cat at one of the below centers, or donate to the shelter via PayPal.
