I definitely appreciate adoption in many circumstances :). And there is too much traffic around here. Neither of my cats have ever been outdoors and I don't think they'd have any skills "in the wild" :P. It is just safer overall for them.
I got both my cats from my old work (a vet office). They have a program with the local shelter and take in cats and dogs that have a medical condition and need a little extra TLC, a surgery or are pregnant, which frees up space to take in other animals. Then my work adopts them out after treating them or spaying and neutering the moms and kittens that are born.
My tabby was a teen mama cat. When her kittens were ready to be weaned I took her. Jacob was a kitten from my work's sister hospital who has the same program with another shelter in the area. Him and his sister were the last two kittens left and since they couldn't find a home for them at THAT office, they sent them over to us. Around the time where they were 5mos. the sister was adopted and I took him home every night to kinda foster him for the next few weeks. Halloween night we decided to adopt him after he wiggled his way into our hearts
