Was Dr. John P. Ruffing Your Veterinarian? Celebrate His Birthday!

Dr. John P. Ruffing

He would be 58 on Wednesday Sometimes, I wonder how life would be if he had lived past the age of 41. But then I realize that is pointless. I am pretty sure he would not read my blog (all the reading!) and would proud of my awards. I have countless stories. Right now, I’m […]

These Northside Community Cats Need Help to Survive the Winter

It is Caturday. The community cats living at the Fort Faulsey need your help. We are hoping to collect some food, supplies, etc to help them get through the winter. Our neighbor, Marie, has been taking care of all of the colony cats, two feeding stations, etc. Since early August, 7 days a week without […]

Now The Judge Said That I Can Be Inside My Home like Guard Dog

Guard Dog abuse

I’ve been following the comic strip Mutts. The creator has decided to set free Guard Dog, a supporting character who has been chained out back by his owners since 1995. It’s a heart wrenching story. His owners moved away and left him chained alone in the backyard. He withered. Earl and Mooch found him, got […]

Are my cat companions “nibblings”?

Tonight I realized I’ve stopped taking cat photos. If you follow me on any platform, you see pics of my food, my television shows, my home, and my cats. My whole life has been added to my permanent record thanks to memory features on FB, Google, OneDrive, etc. I open that link each day, pouring […]

I Miss My Cats and I Want To Go Home

assorted cats

It has almost been over a month since I was dislodged from my home of 18 years. Read more: https://gofund.me/71a28a80 Friends came to my rescue in many ways. I am safe, well-fed, comforted, and supported. But I haven’t seen any of my cats since August 27. I don’t know if they are okay or if […]

Dishonoring the Death of My Sweet Dog

CN: death of pets, animals, grief I’ve had horrible endings for multiple pets – my sweet Jack attacked my face. Ashley fought euthanasia for two hours on my parents living room floor. A dog killed three kittens. Mona fought cancer but it killed her and she pulled away from me in her final days. She […]

Oh, Deer. That’s Not a Cat

deer at the cat colony

Deer readers. We are doing some fundraising for Fort Faulsey to replace the feeding stations – we hope to buy six of these amazing stations created by Feralvilla that are durable, hygenic, and safe. I’ve been looking for great clips of the colony to highlight why we need this and tonight … I had a […]

Liesl Obrecht, Selina Wu, And Their Kitten Brothers Are Doing Great

Nearly four weeks have flown by since this little litter of sweet kittens joined our (foster) family and they are doing great. Yay Kitten! Refresher: they were born in April in Fayette County, found in a barn, and voila! So now they are eight weeks old. They eat like champs, they play, they tussle, there […]

Meet Our New Foster Kittens: The #FayetteFive

Five little kittens in a collage

Let me set the stage. Four years ago on May 8, 2019, we ‘plucked’ an orange fluff ball from our backdeck. The next day, we were accepted as a kitten foster home by Pittsburgh CAT and over the next five days, trapped the entire litter – all five of them. You may remember then as […]
