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. […]

Letting Go of Jennie Jane: Releasing a TNR Cat

After nearly two weeks in a temporary foster home, it was time for Jennie Jane to be released. She has recovered from her surgery very well. She’s spent all of that time resting, eating food she didn’t have to find herself, and observing the foster home. And she also made it clear that she was […]

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 […]

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 […]

The SueCat #KittenCaboodle Update That You Need

The kitten situation has changed significantly over the past five days. You may remember that I plucked Sun Volt off the deck and into our bathroom where he had a continuous source of kitten chow, clean water, sleep, and human attention. He was joined by one and then two of his littermates (now known as […]

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 […]
