I would happily adopt Jai! There is just something about him ... maybe because he looks a bit like Marcel, but I think it is that knowing look in his eyes and his bandit mask. Some idiot had him declawed and then continued to let him be an outdoor cat where he could not defend himself and one battle too many left him with FIV and then they didn't want him anymore. FIV is not that big a deal but most people don't know that.
But Marcel rules the roost around here and would have a crazy turf war with any other male cat. He would probably loose but he's got serious claws so there would be carnage and that's just bad all around. He might tolerate a female cat, especially one as tiny as Dousa (who I was instantly smitten with) but happily she has already found a home.
A very lovely person has started a blog with very detailed profiles of all the sweeties still left at the shelter, so if you have been thinking about adding a cat to your life, and older cats make wonderful, mellow pets, please have a look: http://helpthethskitties.blogspot.com/ and think about giving a needy kitty a home.
They have just added a picture of Poppy.
We are talking cat super-model here and she makes me want to go over there right now and bring her home. But full disclosure - I am actually kinda allergic to cats and as much as I love them another would probably put me on oxygen. I cannot go into pet stores without wanting to cry from the cuteness and I should really stop looking at this blog. But I hope somebody brings this gorgeous darling home!
