Anyone who works in animal rescue knows how hard it is to find adoptive families. Tenth Life Cat Rescue in St. Louis, Missouri figured out that by embracing the krazy kat lady cliche, they could make a very funny commercial to get people to take a cat off their hands.
All of my beasts have been rescues, and it's really the way to go when it comes to pets. Don't shy from adult cats, either. Apart from Val, I've always taken in grown cats and they've all been fantastic. Everyone wants a kitten until it's tearing apart their apartment at 3:00 a.m.
