Angela from The Office gets catty

Angela Kinsey, who plays insane Angela Martin on the office, is the latest celebrity poster child for Alley Cat Allies. It's an American not-for-profit that advocates catch, fix and release — as opposed to euthanasia — as a response to the problem of stray and feral cats.

Angela joins previous celebs such as Portia de Rossi, Rue McClanahan and Paula Poundstone in supporting the program.

According to their campaign press release:

A national survey by the respected research organization Harris Interactive found that over 40 percent of Americans have fed a stray cat in their lives, and one out of five has done so in the past year.

Feral cats are the same species as domestic cats, but they are not socialized to people and prefer to live in family groups called colonies. Because they are not adoptable, they are almost always killed in animal shelters.

At the risk of being catty myself, I just wish they had released a larger jpeg of the ad, so I could read the damned copy.
