Cats for Adoption: Meet Angel Donna

Yes, she’s as full of spunk as she looks! a lovely long-haired dilute calico, she has as much attitude as she has cuteness.

That doesn’t mean she’s a bad girl—after all, with that sweet halo on the top of her head how could she be a bad kitty? But compared to her sweet orange brothers she’s pretty bossy and independent. And she’s looking for a forever home to manage.

Her rescuer calls her Angel, but I added the name “Donna” in honor of that rescuer who heard about a mama kitty with very young kittens who were living outside on porch during our cold and icy January, and went out on a night well below freezing to find them and bring them home; he has similarly rescued many other cats and kittens.

Mama Kitty, a long-haired torbie, was less than friendly, glaring out from her cage and initially not nursing when humans were around. She was spayed at an HCMT clinic earlier in February and is learning to like to be petted.

The kittens are accustomed to being handled, and Donna’s two brothers, Garfield and Jasper, have been spoken for and will be adopted when they’ve been neutered and had their first set of vaccinations.

Little Donna loves to hunt feather toys and unroll toilet paper. Even with her attitude she’s accustomed to people and doesn’t mind being handled, plays with other cats, and apparently shows the dog who is boss.

Garfield and Jasper just being cute, but no attitude.

And personally, I think all cats are beautiful, but I have a special spot in my heart for dilute calicos and torties, and I think Angel Donna is going to be a real heartbreaker.

If you think you can handle such beauty, intelligence and cat-titude, please contact Donnie at

Fred and Barney get cuter every day! Their foster mom says they are sleeping on the bed, playing with the dog and asking for love, miles away from nearly being killed in a shelter because they were considered feral. They are actively looking for a home, or at least their foster mom is, so if you are looking for two cute kittens to join your household, let me know and I’ll put you in touch with their foster mom.

What can you do?

There are so many ways you can help in all these efforts! 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.

The cats I’ve featured recently are from or were assisted by these rescues, shelters and organizations, though these are by no means the only organizations who are out there helping cats and other animals:

Frankie’s Friends

FosterCat, Inc.

The Homeless Cat Management Team

The Animal Rescue League and Wildlife Center of Western Pennsylvania

The Western Pennsylvania Humane Society

In Care of Cats
