A local non-profit group, Macon Animal Purrs and Paws, held adoptions Saturday to try to give Central Georgians the 'purr-fect' companion.
Folks could get kittens with an $85 adoption fee, which is used as a donation that covers the cost of vetting and housing for the animals the shelter takes in.
Many of these cats are free to roam around the shelter, organizers say that's because when they're not in a cage people can see more of the feline's personality.
One Macon couple found the perfect Blue Russian kitty to take home with them and they're happy to get her from a cat shelter.
"Well any kitty that can have a home is a good kitty, we have had cats all of our lives and we haven't had one for a couple of years and so that's why we came down here," says Jeane Heinger of Macon.
Organizers say many of these cats have been rescued.
