Today is #Caturday, a weekly day to celebrate and honor cats in our lives. I am fortunate enough to work with a slew of cat folx who have pet cats, community cats, foster cats, and more. I work with the #PghCatFolx projects to address gaps and needs. We aren’t a rescue or foster. We do […]

She was part of the OG group of ferals we found at the colony we dubbed Fort Faulsey. She didn’t trust us not even a little bit, watching warily […]
