If you aren't sure you can tell if a kitty is a match for you at an adoption fair, King Street Cats has a great alternative; a house for cats. Be sure to check their hours on their web site. The cats are ususally available to meet on weekends.

Alley Cat Allies (Ferals) Salary for Becky Robinson was $162,945 in a recent year; for Donna M. Wilcox it was
$163,673. They should pay back several hundred thousand dollars. They make it clear they don't want you to call if you need help with ferals; they are extremely rude. But they still send me donation requests. Consider instead, Alley Cat Rescue or Metro Ferals.
