2 Northside Kittens, Mama and Papa Need Urgent Help

We need to raise funds lickety split to TNR two kittens known as Annie and Kitty, plus their parents. There’s a slight window to get the kittens into foster care to be socialized, but it’s closing daily. Any amount will help. More details below. It literally never ends. But TNR means it slows down.

How are the cats?

Adopt a Kitten

My Birthday Wish (Almost) Came True

Pittsburgh Feral Cats
