We need just $390 to buy TNR cat lady supplies for Pittsburgh #GivingTuesday

Fundraiser for homeless cats

In October, we created a crowdfund to benefit the Homeless Cat Management Team. Our goal is to raise $2500 to purchase trap/neuter/return (TNR) supplies including a drop trap kit, humane traps, carriers, gloves, nets and so forth to have available for Northsiders rescuing cats. The gear will be the property of HCMT, but live with […]

My Birthday Wish (Almost) Came True

Pittsburgh Feral Cats

Sunday was a good day. Our friend Don helped to assemble our new feeding station for our feral cats. I was so excited – watching cats eat in the rain has been sad and we had no solid shelter as an alternative. So I asked for a shelter as my birthday gift – I turn […]

Dog House Wanted by the PghCatLadies

We are preparing for what might be a rough winter, including our two feral visitors Oksana and Mx. Pajamas. Shelter is critical for homeless cats. We repurposed an old insulated dog house by filling it with straw and draping an old comforter across the entrance. We also have two smaller coolers that have been slightly […]

Meet Queenie, an Adult Cat for Adoption in Pittsburgh #PghCatLadies

Cats for Adoption Pittsburgh

Meet Queenie Senior female tortoiseshell, good with dogs and children, prefers no other cats. Hello! My name is Queenie, and I have been through a lot in my 9 years! I am originally from a shelter in Florida. A bunch of us kitties were flown to safety in Pittsburgh when my shelter had to make […]

Two groundhogs and two feral cats walked onto our back porch #PghCatLadies

Feral cats Groundhogs Pittsburgh

Last night, we had two groundhogs and two cats in too small of a space. On the left, one groundhog is eating dry cat food. The second groundhog makes several forays up the deck steps to try to get to the other dish of food. On the railing to the right is Oksana observing everything. […]

What Will Happen to Jennie Jane?

Jennie Jane has recovered from her spay surgery. She’s ready to be released. For the time being, she’s being housed by a temporary foster home. That person reports that JJ is eating, using the litter pan, and not showing aggression when those items are changed out by human hands. But she’s cowering in the crate […]

Snipping Kittens and Other #KittenCaboodle Updates

Feral Cats Pittsburgh

On Monday, we took our feral mama, Jennie Jane, to be spayed, tested, and vaccinated. She came through that procedure with flying colors (tested negative for both FeLV and FIV.) The cat lady who helped us to trap her had a temporary spot in her foster room so JJ is now enjoying a bit of […]

Another Day, Another Trapped Feral Cat #PghCatLadies

Feral Cat Pittsburgh

We’ve been trying to trap Jennie Jane, the mother of our #kittencaboodle for months. She’s incredibly wily and trap savvy – constantly pulling food out the side and always avoiding the actual trap snap. So the folx at Homeless Cat Management Team hooked us up with Karen Sable who is a guru among drop trap […]

A racoon, two groundhogs, and the wrong cat walk into a box trap #PghCatLadies

Pittsburgh Feral Cat Trapping TNR

As part of ever-expanding quest to create chaos and drama for ourselves, we are trying to trap a very certain cat this weekend – the ‘mama’ of our five kitten caboodle foster kitties. We’ve dubbed her Jennie Jane and it appears she is pregnant again. We’ve been trying to trap her for months with little […]

Five Sick Kittens Walk Into Our Bathroom #KittenCaboodle

Content Note: Happy Ending Late last week, the kittens all took sick. This means they had diarrhea and vomit incidents throughout the bathroom, mostly in the tub (thank goodness.) It was Friday when things took that dark turn so we updated the foster group (Pittsburgh C.A.T.) and hoped it was just a small thing. Saturday […]
