Munich is the featured kitty today on Pittsburgh CAT! All I know about her is that she is a two-year-old spayed female, but the photo was so nice I couldn’t pass it up. I’m sure she’s as nice as she is pretty!
Don’t forget to go and visit Pittsburgh CAT on Facebook to see all the happy kittens and cattens available through our rescue group! They are all spayed or neutered, have all age-appropriate shots, are healthy and socialized after living in a loving foster home, and each one of them has a story to tell!
The little black cat goes with everything! And her name is Velvet. She is around 4 months old and is an absolute sweetheart who loves to snuggle. She likes to headbutt, knead and be loved! If you’re looking for an affectionate cat who loves nothing more than to curl up in your lap while you scratch behind her ears, Velvet is your girl! Can you open your home and your heart to this little sweetie?
I had to share Trouble again as she is growing up fast and so darned cute. Her beginnings were rough. Born outside and sick when she and her litter mates came to us, she is now in great health. She is a very outgoing little girl. She loves to play and explore new things but when she is tired, her favorite spot is next to you to cuddle. She loves kids and has been around them all the time. She has also been with dogs and older cats. This little girl is perfect for any family. She is around 10 weeks old.
These two little kittens don’t have names yet but need a foster home! The gray kitten is a little shy but is cute as a button and ready for her forever home. She will be fixed prior to adoption. She has never been around kids or dogs but likes other cats. She will do well in a patient home so she can come out of her shell!
The tabby with white paws baby girl is ready for her forever home. She will be fixed prior to adoption. She has never been around kids or dogs but likes other cats. She is very friendly.
Both kittens need a home ASAP because of lack of foster homes to prevent her from going to a shelter!

Other ways you can help these cats and kittens
You can make a tax-deductible donation to Homeless Cat Management Team at any time by visiting JustGive.org, a page where registered organizations can collect charitable donations with no fees, and the deductions are still 100% tax deductible. In the upper right of the page enter “HCMT” or “Homeless Cat Management Team” if you want to type it out, and the search will return a link which, when clicked, will open a popup box with HCMT’s financial information and a link to donate. You can donate as little as $10.
If you are donating toward the care of a cat I’ve featured, please forward your receipt to my email.
There are two ways you can help this effort by making even a small tax-deductible donation to the Homeless Cat Management Team and their network of rescuers and caretakers and I’ll give you a $10 gift certificate to my Etsy shop for you to use for your own shopping, to give as a gift, or keep for later, good for $10.00 off your order of $25.00 or more. First, you can make a donation through JustGive.org as explained above. Even though I’m giving you a gift certificate your gift is still fully tax-deductible as a charitable contribution because you’re not receiving a gift from HCMT, that comes from me, and I’m doing this of my own free will and get no benefit from Homeless Cat Management Team or for it.

Amazon Wish Lists
I’ve lost count of the number of kittens in foster among our volunteers, and August is usually the month with the highest surrender numbers at Pittsburgh shelters. Part of the mission with TNR is to not return the kittens—once we’ve rescued them we socialize them and put them up for adoptiont.
Many rescuers pay out of pocket for veterinary care and food but the costs of raising even the average litter of four healthy kittens is more than many people have, and many rescues have greater needs, like Auntie. If you can help with just one purchase from the kitten wish list on Amazon.com you’d make some kittens and a rescuer very happy.
We have two wish lists at the moment, the one hosted by Margo which several of you have donated through already and a new one hosted by Tarra that includes items for adult cats.
Can’t adopt? Foster! Can’t foster? Donate or volunteer.
There are so many ways you can help cats who need homes and care. You may not have room to adopt another cat, but can foster a cat or kitten for a few weeks. If not that, you can volunteer at a shelter or with a rescue, or donate. You do this because you love your cat, and by doing so you help all cats. No matter which of these actions you take, you help to save a life, and make life better for all cats.
- Adopt one of the cats I’ve posted here, or from any shelter or rescue near you, or from Petfinder, to open up a space for another cat to be rescued and fostered.
- Offer to foster cats or kittens for a shelter or rescue near you.
- Volunteer at a shelter or rescue.
- Find a group of volunteers who work with homeless cats and help them with their efforts.
- Donate to a shelter or rescue near you.
If you can foster kittens or adults cats to help prepare them for a forever home, please run to your nearest shelter and find a cat who needs you! Anyone can help with this effort at any level, even if all you do is donate to a shelter or rescue so they can help to pay for the food or medications needed for their foster, or the spay/neuter/veterinary care during a clinic.
