In honor of the spooky season, we decided to take a look at some of these misunderstood beauties that are up for adoption in eastern Iowa. You'll be happy these kitties crossed your path.

The cats featured are from local rescues such as Last Hope Animal Rescue, Safe Haven of Iowa County, and S.A.I.N.T Rescue. Thanks to those organizations for taking in these kitties, and for everything they do for animals in the area.
