And Then There Was Kinzua, The Kitten With a Mission

Sunday afternoon, I saw a post on Facebook about a little kitten in need of a temporary foster home. He was called McFeisty, about 8-10 weeks of age, and needed some work on skittishness. We hoped a few weeks in our kitten playpen and exposure to some other kittens and cats would be just the […]

setting boundaries

Recently, I blew up at another LGBTQ advocate who made some choices that I found questionable. I ended the conversation by telling them “Please don’t message me. I need a break from you.

Black Women Pittsburgh

I’m still struggling along this week so I’ve had to skip a few significant stories I’d typically blog about. But I am paying attention. I live about a mile away from the Exxon gas station in Marshall-Shadeland where three male employees assaulted two Black women over what amounted to $17 worth of gas. I encourage […]

Arnold’s Tea Will Remain Open

Arnold's Tea Pittsburgh

Good news about Arnold’s Tea, a local Black owned business that was facing potential eviction and termination of their lease. First, it is critical to note that 3200+ people signed the Change.org petition to keep Arnold’s Tea open. That’s impressive. HDDC Board President Barbara Burns and her leadership team should open the books, explain how […]

Dog House Wanted by the PghCatLadies
