(This post is likely to jinx the Giants, and for that I apologize in advance.)

As the Giants vie for the National League pennant this weekend, the San Francisco SPCA is root-root-rooting for the home team the best way they know how: by making it as easy as possible for adopters to find cats who are dressed in the colors of the Giants’ uniforms: orange, black & white. Right now, all orange, black, and calico cats and kittens are available for adoption from the SF SPCA for an unbelievably low fee of $9.00.

Here’s their starting line-up:



Shira

2-1/2 year old Shira, Center Field, bats first. She’s a magical cat with an unforgettable personality, sure to shine in the post-season.



William

Batting second, this 6 1/2 year old recently recovered from a broken leg here at our hospital, and he’s made a stunning comeback this season. (SS)


Daisy

With a .315 batting average, playful Daisy’s having a remarkable year (3B).

Kiyoshi

In the cleanup slot, we have First Baseman Kiyoshi, a fluffy, orange 6 1/2 year old. He’s a lover, not a fighter… except when he’s at bat.

Spike

Batting fifth, Mr Spike is a mature, mannish cat of 10 years. An outstanding outfielder, he’s won two Golden Paws. (LF)

Oreo Cookie

Sixth in the lineup, catcher Oreo Cookie is a 10 year old girl with purr-sonality plus and an uncanny knack for calling the right pitch.

Betsy

Batting seventh, demure Betsy (RF) is a shy 4 year old girl, but loves to be petted on her cheeks and cute little chin.


Keiko

In the eighth slot, All-Star Keiko is a striking black cat that really likes to pal around with people. (2B)


Pollyanna

Pitcher Pollyanna rounds out the lineup. Her fastball has been clocked at 98 mph, but she’d like to retire to a slower-paced life in a quiet home.

These and many others (including a shy 15-yr-old Siamese named Ishi), can be found at the SF SPCA.
