One other option to consider if you're looking for an adult is the cat clubs. There are often lots of "pedigree" cats who need rehoming for the same reasons as those who end up in shelters, and the cat clubs often take charge of finding them new homes.
I don't make any great claim for pedigrees over moggies, and you may think a cat from a shelter deserves better. However, you may find more cats who are happy to live indoors that way than in a shelter, where most of them are outdoor cats.
A good example (and where I found my "much loved and often discussed on this forum" kitty, by accident) is http://www.acasites.co.uk/
