If this weather makes you feel lonely and sad, then you probably are in need of a companion. Chin up: We found one -- or 20 -- for you. Go down to the Peninsula today and get your free kitty. We said FREE, damn it.

Right now as we type, the Peninsula Humane Society and SPCA is waiving adoption fees for all cats and kittens. That's not to say the agency isn't going to shoo away any donations, large or small.

To put this offer into context, cat adoptions would usually cost

you somewhere between $80 and $95, depending on the age of the feline.

That fee includes spaying or neutering, vaccinations, a health and

behavior screening, an ID tag, and a microchip. So basically you will geet $300 worth of cat care for nothing if you adopt a feline today.

The SPCA has offered similar no-fee promotions in the past, but only for one day. However, the sun will not set on this sweet deal. We're guessing there are too many cats pouncing around the Peninsula these days.

And we were right. According to the shelter, there are some 80 felines in need of a home. That's on top of the additional cats that are being held at PHS/SPCA's intake facility at

Coyote Point due to space issues; they will be moved to the new center where they will become candidates for adoption as soon as you come get your cat.
"Our goal is to get a few

hundred cats and kittens into new, permanent loving homes by Christmas," says SPCA spokesperson Scott Delucchi. "We will gladly trade

adoption fees for those homes."
The PHS/SPCA's new adoption center is

located at 1450 Rollins Rd. in Burlingame, and is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on

weekdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. For more information go to

Now stop being a selfish prick and open your arms to one of these homeless cats.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
