Full Description: This shiny app scrapes real time data from the Los Angeles Kitten Rescue, displays information on adoptable cats, and has a "Cat Tinder" page that shows pictures of available cats (and a couple of random dogs that made their way into the kitten rescue). The first page plots the number of cats available by breed and sex. The second page visualizes the cat names as a word cloud (in the shape of a cat!) and highlights names that are food, Harry Potter characters, or Disney characters using fuzzy logic. The last page is Cat Tinder. The app randomly generates an image of one of the cats and the button on the left will show you a new cat while the button on the right will take you to the cat adoption page.
