Polydactyl cats are considered good luck, so if finding stray polydactyl kittens in need of rescue can be considered lucky, then this rescuer is full it! And not only polydactyl but gorgeous long-haired and semi-long-haired white kittens with little gray hats and solid black kittens. She’s been working on one particular stray/feral colony for years, finally trapping and spaying one of the grandmothers and this year has been working on her children and this year’s kittens. At one point she had 11 kittens from this site, and all the kittens are fully vetted, spayed or neutered and put up for adoption; details are below.
Above, Snowflake and Snowball show off on op of their cage. Wouldn’t they be a nice matched set of kittens to adopt?
Below, one of the “Motley Crue”, No. 2, a sweet long-haired girl ready for a lap of her own. (Note: I originally had the following two kittens as ten months old, but they are actually four months old, my mistake!)
Below is Motley No. 1, a polydactyl and also about ten months old. Her rescuer says of her, “This little lady was soooo flea infested her back half was pink.” She’s clean and brushed and going to be a real heartbreaker with all that floof!
Here is Frances, “She puts Frank Sinatra and Paul Newman to shame with her absolutely stunning baby blue eyes, however, because she has a black smudge, she’s not deaf…she is, however, also a polydactal…best estimate for her is 8 weeks.”
And then there is Cottonball, 11 weeks old, “…beautiful and soft, very active…”
All of these kittens were privately trapped and rescued and raised in home by a dedicated rescuer who has been performing TNR for several years on a large stray/feral colony near a bar and restaurant. She has other rescued kittens and adult cats for adoption as well.
Interested in adopting?
Her adoption fee is $70 which includes:
- FVRCP shots
- 1st/2nd worming
One kitten of every litter is tested for FIV/FeLeuk, and if an adopter wants them to be microchipped that is an extra $30.
In order to adopt she requires:
- a vet reference
- a home visit
- signed contract
- proof from the landlord you can have pets if you rent
They are currently in the Pittsburgh area, and you can contact me if you are interested in adopting.

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.
