10 Cutest Adoptable Cats

This week's feature and slideshow brought attention to what animal rescues organizations are doing and can do to stop unnecessary shelter killing of dogs and cats. What the story didn't mention is that you can do something too--spay and neuter your animals and adopt pets from shelters.

There are an estimated six to eight million animals that are abandoned every year and half of them are put down, says Daphna Nachminovitch, a vice president for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. "The problem isn't so much that the animals are euthanized, the problem is that too many are born. People need to look in their homes and think about how they get their pets."

So, without further ado, we present you with the Top 10 Cutest Adoptable Cats in the Twin Cities. Ranked from preciously sweet, to downright adorable, each one of these pets needs a home. (Click on the animal's name for adoption information.)

My name is Princess and I am a pretty white and brown tabby cat. I do not do well with other animals, we just don't see eye to eye, so I must be the only pet in the home.

8. Nolan, Hemingway Polydactyl, Domestic Short Hair, Pet Haven

COUNT MY TOES!! Nolan is a cute fellow with all his extra toes - 23! He's a little shy at first but loves to rub around your ankles and lets you know when it's time for more food in his bowl by mewing to you.
