Welcome to the Garfield Boys – our latest foster kittens

Foster Kittens Pittsburgh

We took in some foster kittens to help with the deluge on local rescues. Our crew are three boys who were from Garfield. They are sweet, curious, and friendly. They are doing well so far – about seven weeks old, all males, and off to a good socialization start. They will be available for adoption […]

I Watched ‘The Tragedy of MacBeth’ With My Cats

I can’t recall the last time I watched a performance of MacBeth and Laura has never seen it before so this was a good way to spend our Saturday evening. With cats. Sharing the screen are some of our foster kittens and some of our resident critters. The seal-tipped Siamese kitten is six month old […]

I Put Up a Christmas Tree For My Feral Cat Colony

We have three Christmas trees this year. Our main living room tree in its usual corner spot, wedged in with a rocking chair and a few cat beds to avoid feline fiascos. It has lights and cat-friendly ornaments. It is lovely. I could watch the lights for hours. Of course, we put no gifts out […]

We’ve Fostered 24 Kittens Since 2018

Dear friends, I hope you are having a safe and healthy holiday season. Laura and I are well. We did not expect to spend nearly our entire first year as a married couple in a pandemic, but we are both triple vaccinated, practicing social distancing, and wearing our masks. Our cats have been a source […]

Update on the #DavisGirls Foster Kittens from Pittsburgh’s Northside

These three six-week-old kittens from #AlleghenyWest had a rough start with limited food sources and Mama bullied by other community cats. I trapped them last week over the course of five nights. Sticking with my soap opera names, I dubbed these the Davis Girls, referencing the nickname for the adult daughters of Alexis Davis on […]

Last week, the good folks at Homeless Cat Management Team successfully mass trapped 18 kittens, 15 adults, and recovered some deceased of various ages. This was Clairton. They TNVRd the adults at the clinic the next day and the kittens were vetted and divided into foster homes. Bringing in 18 kittens at one time is […]

#ManchesterCatTrap To Help Emergency Rescue of 19 Kittens from Clairton

The foster group that Laura and I work with is called Pittsburgh C.A.T. which is affiliated with the Homeless Cat Management Team. They are not officially involved in the #ManchesterCatTrap, but have been a great source of support. This weekend, we received a notice that two of the most experienced trappers had gone to Clairton […]

Homeless Cats on the Northside Need Help

It has been awhile since I wrote an update on our foster cat lady status. For most of this year, we’ve had three cats living with us – Stefano DiMera and Spencer Cassadine are now 14 month old siblings and their mom, Helena Cassadine (age – timeless) is living in our bathroom. COVID and their […]

Look for the helpers. Then help them.

One thing I’ve typically done well is filling gaps in services, looking for unmet needs. Right now, I have a lot of balls in the air because the needs are seemingly endless. These are projects where modest donations can have a big impact. Here are some ways to help your neighbors. Help animals. Help veterans. […]
