Grady is one of them. The male domestic shorthair loves nose rubs and is a great lap cat. You may fall in love with his rumbling purr.

The humane society is making it easy to take Grady and other cats home, Friday, August 9th it's offering reduced cat adoption fees.

You can get a cat for just $5 as part of $5 Feline Friday.  There are now over 80 cats being cared for by DCHS in need of forever homes.

"We want to help all of the incoming cats that need us and we're running out of space!" says Gayle Viney, Public Relations Coordinator for DCHS.  "The community has stepped up and helped us in the past when our population has gotten this high – we hope there are people ready and interested in adopting a cat right now."
