    Clearly I support them, and especially this time of year because there are so many strays and they are responsible for rescuing Mama cat.

    The Fairfax County Animal Shelter will host a special adoption beginning Feb. 5 called “Be Mine, Feline.”

    As you can probably tell by the name, the event will focus on finding homes for cats and kittens that are available for adoption at the shelter.

    Most of the kitties – 161 of them – are from a single home that was the focus of a hoarding investigation in November 2010. The shelter said many of those cats are now healthy, available and looking for safe, loving, permanent homes.

    Here’s another notable tidbit about the adoption event: The shelter is offering a special assessment of each cat’s personality to help prospective adopters find the right feline for their family and household.

    “Throughout February, the shelter will be in the business of matchmaking — helping adopters match the right cat for their lifestyle and for their home,” said Dr. Karen Diviney, shelter director.

    The special adoption promotion will last through February 28.

    You can visit the shelter Tuesdays through Fridays from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
