Honor Earth Day By Cleaning Up A Neighborhood Hosting a Northside Cat Colony

My dear cat folx, the time is here – Earth Day is almost upon us and the clean-up events are rolling out across social media. I didn’t want to be left out in the shade, so I proposed to Pittsburgh LGBTQ Charities (PLC) that we organize a little event to clean up the Fort Faulsey […]

The great news is that 24 donors have invested enough to give each of our cat caretakers TWO gift cards ($25 value each.) Excellent way to redirect gift cards you don’t love to your neighbors!

The One Year Anniversary of the Establishment of Ft. Faulsey Cat Colony

One year for Christmas, my brother received a fort and I received a Barbie townhouse. We had a lot more fun with the fort – my father had us lay out the armies for the attack. I usually included my barbies, stuffed animals, and assorted small toys. Setting up the actual plastic soldiers was dull. […]

I tend to close my eyes when it hurts sometimes

Asus vivibook

PLACED in our backyard by someone, likely poisoned like the one from July. Well, possibly […]

Of Coronavirus and Cats

Sue and Laura in Face Masks

This week, it feels like the coronavirus has begun to circle my personal space in an ominous manner that gives me pause. Never mind that I’ve been working on the face mask distribution project since April and paying close attention to lots of tangents of this pandemic. I’m still susceptible to the fear and trepidation […]

The #KittenCaboodle Update Pride Edition

KittenCaboodle

Head’s up dear readers – I’m an official Amazon influencer and I have to figure out how that works. So links for items that I recommend will take you to my Amazon storefront. If you buy stuff through those links, I get a wee bit. Like a referral fee. I’m still figuring this out. So […]
