If you’ve been reading The Creative Cat for any length of time you know the beauty of having a house panther around the house. Start your own collection, or add to the one you already have! And that little Trouble, well, her name should say it all!
These five kittens were all born outdoors and rescued, often along with their moms, over the summer. They are all around four to five months old and have been in foster for about two months. They are all spayed and neutered and have all age-appropriate vaccines. Here’s a little information about them, below, and if you need to know more their foster family will be glad to tell you all about them! That’s the best thing about adopting from a foster home.
PAUL: Paul and his siblings were born behind a wood pile in Ingram. They were taken in, along with their Momma, and have been happily living in a powder room in Emily’s house. Paul is 8 weeks old and looking for his forever home. Paul is a little scamp and is very curious. He would keep someone entertained and smiling for a very long time!
PETER: He is about 16 weeks old, neutered, FIV/FELV negative, has all of his shots, AND is awesome! He is hanging out at my house tonight, and he is super sweet and playful! He would make a great addition to a wonderful family! He is excellent with his litterbox! Contact me if you’re interested and I’ll get you the application! He is a total sweetheart!!!
VELVET: She is around 5 months old and is an absolute sweetheart who loves to snuggle. She likes to headbutt, knead and be loved! If you’re looking for an affectionate cat who loves nothing more than to curl up in your lap while you scratch behind her ears, Velvet is your girl! Can you open your home and your heart to this little sweetie?
WIGGINS: He is around 14 weeks old and likes other cats. He will play with his foster mom’s dogs through the door but because skiddish, she hasn’t been officially dog tested yet. He loves having his head scratched and will purr like a motor and fall to the floor. Adopt a black cat today!
TROUBLE: Her beginnings were rough. Born outside and sick when she and her litter mates came to us, she is now in great health. She is a very outgoing little girl. She loves to play and explore new things but when she is tired, her favorite spot is next to you to cuddle. She loves kids and has been around them all the time. She has also been with dogs and older cats. This little girl is perfect for any family. She is around 16 weeks old.

Amazon Wish Lists
I’ve lost count of the number of kittens in foster among our volunteers, and August is usually the month with the highest surrender numbers at Pittsburgh shelters. Part of the mission with TNR is to not return the kittens—once we’ve rescued them we socialize them and put them up for adoptiont.
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, like Auntie. If you can help with just one purchase from the kitten wish list on Amazon.com you’d make some kittens and a rescuer very happy.
We have two wish lists at the moment, the one hosted by Margo which several of you have donated through already and a new one hosted by Tarra that includes items for adult cats.
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.
