Adopt Me! Beautiful Boots Was Born for Instagram

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Boots, a handsome 6-year-old tabby who is destined to be an Instagram star.

This adorable guy has been at the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter in East Hanover, New Jersey, for quite a while after being plucked from an overcrowded shelter – and no one can figure out why.

"He is incredible: laid-back, friendly, affectionate, and likes other cats. He gives the best headbutts and loves to get massages," says development coordinator Abby Berenbak. "He has a fan following at the shelter where he is adored by the masses."

It's International Tiger Day, and some very special Internet stars are here to meow all about it.

Lil Bub, Princess Monster Truck, Pudge and more famous web moggies recently joined up with Greenpeace to create the video "Cats Save Tigers." Think of it as a "We Are the World" with more yowling.

In the clip, the kitties explain (with a little help from captions) that while tigers are the largest felines in the world, their numbers are rapidly declining. There are only 3,000 tigers left on Earth today, a depressing figure these cats hope to change.

Adopt Me! Handsome Sebastian Will Have You at Hello

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, meet Sebastian, a 1-year-old cat that was rescued from a feral cat colony earlier this year.

No one knows exactly how this sweet, social boy ended up in a cat colony, where felines tend to be far less socialized. It's believed he was somehow lost or dumped there, but in April he found his way to the Pound Animal Welfare Society of Montclair, New Jersey, and he hasn't looked back since.

This playful guy has found ways to keep busy while waiting for his forever home. "He will hang upside down on his cat condo for attention and to play," says Kristina Olszewski from PAWS. "He loves his feather toys and lives for his treats."

Adopt Us! Darla, Gem & Libby are a Trio to Remember

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to extraordinary adoptable pets every week. Today, meet three: Darla, Gemini and Libra, a unique trio that needs to be adopted together.

Darla, a 2-year-old miniature Pinscher/Dachshund mix, came to the Humane Society Silicon Valley of Milpitas, California, with a common problem: She was terrified. Darla was previously surrendered to a crowded city shelter after living in her owner's backyard where she rarely interacted with people.

Cairo isn't just a place in Egypt.

It's the name of Macklemore's cat – and by the looks of things, the singer adores his pretty kitty just as much as the ancient Egyptians loved their feline friends.

The female tabby has her own Instagram page, which is filled with photos of her doing the most paw-dorable things, like sleeping, cuddling with dad, more sleeping and stealing dad's bling (clearly, she has expensive taste).
