Cats for Adoption: Three From Brookline, Adoptions Sponsored and Food for a Year!

Lil Bit
Lil Bit

As the Brookline hoarding case draws to a close with the guilty pleas and promised restitution of the Riskos, the cats they left behind have been brought back to health and grown accustomed to living in a normal home situation, one that is clean, with regular meals, toys, treats, and lots of love. Only three cats of the 35 we rescued haven’t been adopted yet, and they are quite ready now to find their own forever homes.

Someone cares so much about their adoptions to their very own forever homes that their adoption fees are sponsored. And each of them, upon adoption, gets a year’s supply of Rachael Ray Nutrish for Cats. Isn’t that enough incentive for them to be able to find a home for the holidays? Let’s get Olive, Jasper and Lil Bit into their own forever homes!

Lil Bit

That’s Lil Bit at the top!

I was rescued from a scary place in Brookline where I didn’t have any food or love. Now, even though I have a full belly and a comfy bed, and know I am safe, I am still a little scared of new people and new things. I love chin scratches and pets, and I will purr happily when you stroke my soft, soft fur. When you put me in your lap, I will stay there and cuddle, and I’m beginning to really like that! But it may take me a little while to fully trust new people.

I would like a quiet forever home with a patient adopter — one who doesn’t have too many other cats and who will understand that I may take awhile to come out of my shell.

My foster mom is patiently working with me, and I feel like I’m getting braver every day! Today a stranger came into my room, and I didn’t run and hide, but stayed in my bed and even leaned into her chin scratches! Please give me a chance. I know I will love you with all of my heart if you’re willing to be patient with me.

Jasper

Jasper
Jasper

Jasper is a gorgeous young boy, one of our last remaining cats from the Brookline hoarding case. A sensitive and gentle soul, Jasper is incredibly affectionate once comfortable, rolling over eagerly for pets and scratches and rewarding you with loud purrs the entire time. He particularly loves belly rubs! He’s really just a quiet easy-going boy who loves hanging out with his human, although he does enjoy playing with the ball in the track toy.

Jasper is doing fine with the other cats in his foster home and would probably do well in a home with other calm cats as long as he was introduced slowly. However, he’s fairly independent and would probably be fine as an only cat, too! He would prefer a quiet home where he’ll get lots of love. Jasper will be a little shy at first, so he needs an owner who can be patient with him as he settles in.

Olive

Olive
Olive

Olive is a young female. She is no longer skinny and bald in areas from malnutrition. She is sporting a lovely coat now! She loves to cuddle and lap sit.

She loves people but can be intimidated by other cats. Olive is doing well with her foster mom’s big, calm dog. Her ideal home would have loving owners and nice cats…okay maybe a dog!

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.

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.
