Cats for Adoption: Nelson

Swatting the pendants.
Swatting the pendants.

So what did I think a kitten was going to do with a bunch of dangly pendants? He was so cute I had to kiss him all over.

The Hearts & Paws Pet Fair on Saturday was great fun, perfect weather, and I got to see so many people from other rescues. I was right next to Pittsburgh CAT and was also able to borrow a few kittens to photograph in my display!

Nelson is solid gray and about 12 weeks old, and he wasn’t bothered by all the echoing noises and dogs barking and strangers. He has a sister with white paws who is an absolute nut. Together they are ready for action!

Nelson sez, “I’z gonna grow up to be a Creative Cat!”

Nelson explores my display. “Dis taste good,” he sez. Because everything is better with kittens.

Hmmm…is this food or is it a toy?

Adopting from Pittsburgh C.A.T.

All Pittsburgh C.A.T. adoptions begin with our application. After it’s reviewed you’ll be contacted about meeting your cat or kitten. All cats have been fostered in homes and are healthy, spayed or neutered, up to date on vaccines.

Also look for more adoptable cats on Pittsburgh C.A.T.’s Petfinder page.


Other ways you can help

It’s officially kitten season, and we’re getting lots of kittens in, and of course we still have many adults already in our care. We always welcome donations to help care for our kitties. Adoption fees cover only a fraction of what we spend on medical costs. You can donate via Paypal at pburghcat@gmail.com (If you don’t have Paypal, message us for other ways to donate.)

All of our cats are in foster homes, with foster parents bearing the brunt of the financial responsibility for their food and toys. If you’d like to donate items to our foster families, visit our Amazon wishlist at http://a.co/78yBZdF

Amazon Wish Lists

amazon wish list for kittens

The Amazon Wish List for our group’s foster kittens.

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. Pittsburgh CAT has a number of wish lists that include foods for feeding neo-natal kittens like KMR, and other lists that include the best kitten foods, adult cat foods, food and materials for feral cats, and preferred toys and litter.

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.
