What to Know
Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA
Through July 28
Adotion fees waived on 50 cats
While we Muggles enter the world of Harry Potter through books, films, attractions, conventions, games, and a host of different enchanting outlets, cats, as a rule, never, ever leave that whimsical world.
After all, felines are fantastical, and mysterious, and whether they're up to casting a spell at any particular moment, or summoning a wish on behalf of their mistress or master, really isn't up for a debate: You know cats can.
So the fact that our swishy-tail'd friends already live in a magical universe makes the idea of a Harry Potter-themed adoption event all the sweeter.
Yes, Pawter. Please. You knew it was going to go there.
These are very special kitties, just so you know: They've been sorted into Hogwarts-inspired houses, including "Hufflepurr," "Gryffinrawr," "Kittenclaw," and "Slytherpaw."
No, the names aren't quite what author J.K. Rowling originally dreamt up, but they are so bewitchingly adorable.
And is a section of the Raymond Avenue animal-rescuing hub decorated in delightful Potter-esque gewgaws? Indeed.
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for "Professor Snape's Potions Classroom" as well as the "Divination Classroom" while at the Neely Cat Center.
But you say a cat that isn't part of the Potter promotion has put a spell on you? Fret not, for adoption fees for such fabulous felines will run "as low as $25."
Is it time you had a familiar that's cuddly, purrful, and full of depth? No need to wave your want to summon such a powerful critter: They're in Pasadena, right now, patiently awaiting your arrival.
