For #Caturday We Are Throwing a Pop-Up Kitten Baby Shower

Kitten season has hit hard this year and the caretakers need your help. From finding a very small one with a potentially broken paw in the middle of Federal Street to pleas for help with large litters in Uniontown and beyond, everyone is overextended and running in three directions at once. With a kitten in […]

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 […]

The #FayetteFive Kitten Kronicles: Day One and Two

foster kittens

I told you about the five kittens who landed in our bathroom. No, not the ones from 2019 – a whole new group in 2023. They settled in by huddling together in an orange fish tunnel someone gave us, I think it is from Aldi? It is a great kitten room tool because it is […]

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 […]

The Pittsburgh Free Pet Stuff Store Now Accepting Donations of Gently Used Pet Items

Your semi-regular reminder that the #FreePetStuffStore accepts gently used pet stuff items to redistribute to colony caretakers, rescuers, trappers, and pet owners. We have a storage unit that is currently storing our soon-to-be-built shed. The title Free Pet Stuff Store 15233 is a working title to describe a Free Store focusing on gently used and excess pet […]

Auto Draft

Ashford has a little setback. His stool specimen is clear, but he’s refusing to eat wet food and is very whiny. He’s had constant d+. I spoke with vet today – we are holding steady with current treatment and offering him some dry food options. Reassess on Monday. Most likely, he’ll get more rounds of […]

Report from Fort Faulsey

NO KITTENS! Here’s a little update on the state of our colony, dubbed #FortFaulsey. Colony History Fort Faulsey dates back far before human beings built houses on Faulsey Way and nearby streets. Our little section of Manchester on Pittsburgh’s Northside is close enough to the river and secluded enough by the giant brick sound barrier […]

It is #Caturday – We Built Him Up and Now He’s Solid

Ashford foster kitten

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 […]

Help Kitten ‘Ashford’ Recover From Unplanned Surgery #Caturday

Watch foster mama try to wrangle five month kitten into his cone of shame. Three days ago, a small little guy showed up on a neighbor’s porch. No ear tip, no collar, super friendly. Unneutered male, probably 3-4 months old. Neighbors brought to us to get scanned. While checking him out, we found an abscess […]

Cat and Critter Pics From Fort Faulsey

Sweet cat photos sleeping, eating, and looking askance at me. Donations are quite welcome to feed and accommodate the community and foster cats. We really need a new heated water dish, three feeding stations, two deck/patio boxes, and dry cat food. Our #PghCatFolx need litter, dry & wet food, and clean towels.
