Start your day off right by looking at some cool kitties! There are dozens of cats up for adoption right here in Oakland. Some shelters in the Bay Area have temporarily closed or reduced their hours amid the coronavirus pandemic, so if you are interested in an available pet, contact the animal rescue for its current adoption process.
Hoodline partnered with Petfinder, an online adoption site that lists “more than 315,000 adoptable pets from nearly 14,000 animal shelters and rescue groups" to bring you this roundup of cats near you.

I'm a super fantastic kitty. I'm a snowshoe mix, and we are known for being, well, fantastic cats. I love sitting in the window and watching what's going on in the world. I am a super friendly and confident kitty who loves to play — the Cat Dancer is a real favorite.
