Meet the Star Kittens from Kate Davis's 'Roar' Video

We think Katy Perry would app-purr-rove!

Singer/bassist Kate Davis has put her own spin on Perry's hit song "Roar" by taking the pop song one step furrier, er, further: She filmed a folk version of the ditty at a New York City animal shelter.

Shot Nov. 2 at the Humane Society of New York in midtown Manhattan, Davis and her band – which includes guitarist Gabe Schnider and drummer Conor Szymanski – performed the song in a room full of adorable and very adoptable felines, many of whom rock out as the sweet songstress belts out the tune. And by rock out, we mean go all acrobatic on a cat tree and knead lovingly on a blanket.



PEOPLE.com photo editor Tiffany Hagler-Geard was there for the taping (jealous much?) and shot these photos of the kitty costars. Interested in singing sweet nothings into any of these tiny ears? Fill out an application for adoption on the Humane Society's website.

Best described as "a playful lil fur ball," Chester makes the most of his time in the shelter by "becoming friends with all his kitten friends around him," says Hagler-Geard.
