Giants' Fever Has at Least One Positive Side Effect

Giants' fans like Marissa Miller can feel pretty good about the fever that's spreading.

PETA ought to give Giants' fans a pat on the back. But we're not sure if that would be constituted as animal cruelty.

Baseball fever has been a good sickness for at least one segment of the Bay Area population: black and orange cas.

The Peninsula Humane Society says San Francisco Giants diehards have stepped up to the plate and adopted 50 black and orange cats since the shelter started a special Giants inspired promotion 10 days ago.

To help persuade Giants' fans to show a little feline love this playoff season, the humane society is knocking most adoption fees out of the park, which can run as high as $95 for a kitten.

Instead $9 will score you an extra Giants' fan in the house to help purr the hometown boys to victory over the evil Phillies. Click here for more information if you want more information on the program, or would like to adopt a cat yourself.
