Though the Chicago area has seen more than its fair share of dog-day afternoons so far this month, it was news to us that June is actually national Adopt-A-Cat Month.

Luckily enough, June isn't quite over -- so there's still plenty of time to head to a local shelter and partake in the holiday.

Continuing our weekly series, HuffPost picked out a number of furry feline friends among the latest group of area cats, dogs and rabbits up for adoption at a variety of shelters located throughout the Chicago area. To our knowledge, they've all been spayed or neutered and are up to date with their vaccinations.
