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.
