Cats for Adoption: Celebrate Autumn With Felicity and Her Autumn-tinged Fur

I love my windowsill perch!
I love my windowsill perch!

I freely admit it, I miss a tortie in the house. None of the torties or calicoes who lived with me had any nasty tortitude, and I hear Felicity doesn’t either. I hope someone adopts her soon! She came to Pittsburgh CAT because her first family didn’t want her, but in her foster home where she knows she is loved and safe she is as sweet as can be.

Felicity might as well be a gumdrop because she is the sweetest of sweets! At three years old, her priority in life is to be your forever companion and does her best to make sure you know it. Unwanted by her first family, she came into our rescue and is showing everyone what a positive attitude can do. She loves her foster family very much, but would really love a forever home to call her own–somewhere to spend her days napping on the couch cuddled up to humans who love her so well.

Hi, who are you?
Hi, who are you?

Felicity loves playing and cuddling with other cats and is good with calm dogs and older kids. A windowsill to perch on is a must for little Felicity. She loves to watch the birds and squirrels run and play all day. She’s a bit of a couch potato herself, but enjoys playing as well.

My eyes are lovely.

(Felicity’s photos do not do her unique coloring justice! She looks like a black cat with tabby stripes — very distinctive!)

If you are interested in meeting Felicity, or any of our adoptable cats, please fill out an application here:

(We ask for an application prior to scheduling meetups because our cats are all in foster homes.)

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

Amazon Wish Lists

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.

HCMT 2017 Wish List:

2017 Feral Cat Wish List:

2017 Foster Wish List:

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.

This award-winning art was inspired by working in post op at the May 25, 2014 Homeless Cat Management Team TNR clinic. I’ll make a $5.00 donation to HCMT for each poster sold to help spay and neuter more cats so there won’t be so many to rescue.
