The 12 cats of Christmas [Pictures]

While everyone agrees pets make lousy Christmas presents, the holidays are a great time to bring a new love into your life. Baltimore-area shelters are filled with cats looking for homes. Here are 12 kitties looking for love. Fostering is also an option. It eases stress on crowded shelters and gives cats the chance to show their true colors in a real home with a real family. "Many animals are surrendered to BARCS and are scared at the shelter," says Belinda Reed-Foster, who fosters cats for the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter. "Foster homes give the animal a temporary home where they can flourish and feel safe and secure, and have a chance to show their best side." -- Kim Fernandez, for The Baltimore Sun • More adoptable pets at Baltimore-area shelters [Pictures]
