If you want to bring a sociable cat into your home and help out a kitty in need (and you are in Ottawa ON or the surrounding area), please consider adopting Damon! His adoption advertisement page can be found at: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/15435633/Damon/Damon.html.
Damon is a cat who was foster-cared for by Erin from the National Capital Vegetarian Association-- but now the Ottawa Humane Society has put him in a cage in PetValu on Greenbank Road :(
As Erin points out in her blog post on the NCVA website, by responding to the plea of a fellow activist to adopt an animal (or simply get the word out that this animal is adoptable),
"You’re helping the animal. Just one in the sea of desperate creatures you probably see in your facebook feed each day, but he or she is as deserving of a break as anyone.
...You’re helping ease the pain of a fellow activist. As some of you may know first hand (and as I know from studying animal activists from a sociological perspective), being an animal activist in a world that treats them as chattel can be emotionally draining if not downright debilitating.
...In addition to relieving the activist’s short-term pain, you are giving her hope. Hope that there are others out there that feel as she does. Hope that when she reaches out for help on behalf on her non-animal brethren, someone will heed the call. In other words, you help her remain an animal activist. And that helps the animal protection movement flourish."

So please consider adopting Damon, or at least letting others know that he is adoptable.
Have a nice day!
