Many Kittens Still Looking For Good Home
The first actor adoptions have gone through successfully. Many actors are now settling into their new blogosphere homes.
Still, there are so many more in need. Won't you please help?
Below is a list of adoptions thus far. Keep in mind that I did not include any person that said in a comment, "Yeah, I'd adopt Actor X."
Until you make the declaration of an intent to adopt on your own blog, it will not be recognized in the eyes of the law.

I know, it's sometimes overwhelming how many actors there are out in the cold, uncaring world.
