Even. More. Kittens.

When we last left this story, we had captured one kitten from a litter of five that are attached to a mama cat we’ve been feeding. We named him Sun Volt (SV) because he’s a gorgeous ginger orange tabby and he’s a fierce little man. He took up residence in our bathroom where our dog’s […]

Kitten, Kitten, OMG So Many Kittens

Homeless Kitten

First, we thought Jennie Jane had two kittens. Then, we saw Sun Volt on the porch and he is now residing in our bathroom. And then we waited for the other two kittens to come back. That’s when we realized there were three more kittens, not two. They had clearly learned from Sun Volt’s capture […]

Kitten! Kitten! Who has a kitten?

One of our semi-regular visitors has been Jenny Jane, a young tigerstriped female. We were discussing if she was preggers or not. Turns out, she was. And it turns out she successfully evaded the last local push to TNR in our blocks, successful because she is caring for at least three kittens who are about […]

Last month, we launched a cat food drive to support homeless caretakers in partnership with the Homeless Cat Management Team and CARMAA to support the good folks who are taking care of homeless cats.

Update on the Cat Food Drive: Part One

Cat Food Drive Pittsburgh

So our launch was a little rocky thanks to some shenanigans involving my webservers. I hope that’s been addressed, but just in case – I’ve created a FB event and will do my best to update both on a regular basis. A big shipment was donated via the Amazon wishlist and has already been distributed […]

We Are Throwing a Cat Food Drive!

So, we have organized a cat food drive to benefit the Homeless Cat Management Team. It is a pretty straightforward plan – we have 2 drop-off spots (Northside and Natrona Heights), as well as a crowdfund and an Amazon wish list. As you may know, we got involved with some Northside feral cats in late […]

Further Adventures in Being Cat Ladies: Part Deux

When we last visited with our dynamic feline duo, Maylee and Mamma Mia, they had recently been reunited in our second bedroom after a seven week separation. Reunification went a little more quickly than we planned when Mamma Mia escaped our crate, dashed about the room, and landed under the red chair where Maylee had […]

Mamma Mia, Here We Go Again: Further Adventures in Being in Cat Ladies

Feral cats Pittsburgh

We did it. After seven weeks, we finally (re)trapped our feral/homeless female cat, Mamma Mia, and reunited her with her female bonded companion, Maylee. They are both in our second bedroom with access to food & water, comfortable temperatures, and no fears of being hit by a car, attacked by another animal, etc. They are […]
