Kitten, Kitten, OMG So Many Kittens

Homeless Kitten

Kitten! Kitten! Who has a kitten?

One of our semi-regular visitors has been Jenny Jane, a young tigerstriped female. We were discussing if she was preggers or not. Turns out, she was. And it turns out she successfully evaded the last local push to TNR in our blocks, successful because she is caring for at least three kittens who are about […]

One Blog, Two Fundraisers

We are currently working simultaneously on two very different crowdfunds. First, we teamed up with the Homeless Cat Management Team and CARMAA to organize a cat food drive to specifically benefit caretakers of homeless cat colonies (feral cat colonies) in Pittsburgh. This is a good way to put resources in the hands of people doing […]

The Feral Cat Girls One Year Later aka the Lesbian Cat Lady Adventures

Update on the Cat Food Drive: Part One

Cat Food Drive Pittsburgh

So our launch was a little rocky thanks to some shenanigans involving my webservers. I hope that’s been addressed, but just in case – I’ve created a FB event and will do my best to update both on a regular basis. A big shipment was donated via the Amazon wishlist and has already been distributed […]

Ride Like The Wind

Windstorm Pets

That was some kind of windstorm. Our inconveniences were relatively mild. Our electricity went out around 9:30 PM Sunday evening, literally as Bette Midler was performing Where the Lost Things Go on the Oscar broadcast. We decided to head up to bed and also to round-up the critters to be contained in our bedroom with […]

As you may know, we got involved with some Northside feral cats in late […]
