Gallery: DAWS Catittude: Send In Your Captions

Check out your local homeless feline furballs. The photos are numbered. Send us your captions in the Comments section and we will add them to the photos.

You can't keep a good cat down, as seen by these photos, many worthy of Cheezburger captions.  While some of the cats in this gallery have been at Danbury Animal Welfare Society as long as five years, they seem to take their situation in stride.  

For five years, Adriane Lechner has worked at DAWS.  She has seen cats come and go, even after they had been there for ten years.  While most cats don't stay that long, it's clear from the photos they have learned to make the best of it.

Not that there isn't the occassional feline hissy fit.  The cats' territorial nature makes for some outbursts when one kitty invades the space of the others.  For the most part, these cats are making do, and acting exactly as you would hope.  They are still playful, still affectionate, and still hopeful that someone who comes to visit will take them home. 

If you wish there was a way you could help, DAWS can always use more cat food.

I noticed that some of the numbers weren't on there. I fixed that. But yes, on the cover shot. LOL At the bar, hearing about the exploits of the other cats. That cat needs to go home. He was hilarious the whole time I was there. And PS, the dude doesn't have a tail!
