“Tag, you’re my human!” This little tabby kitty is working hard to charm the human into taking her home!
Being at the Pittsburgh Pet Expo was great fun, though I’m no sure my eardrums have quite recovered from the loud music, noises and canine conversations, and my feet…well, along with standing in my booth with my merchandise and Pittsburgh PetConnections Magazine, I was cruising for kitties! It was so nice to meet rescue organizations I’ve heard of and not met, and so many people who I only know electronically, yet we correspond all the time.
All of the cats and kittens in this post can be found somewhere in Western Pennsylvania. I’ve included a link to their sponsoring organization with their description, so visit the website, Facebook page or PetFinder profile for more information. If you can’t find what you are looking for about any of these cats, please contact me and I’ll be glad to put you in touch.
The tabby above on the left may look as if she doesn’t want to be bothered, but she’s the tabby above who’s attempting to choose her human! I didn’t get all the details on these two tabbies, but I can tell you they were up for adoption through PetSearch. Visit their website and find out more!
Look at all these kitties! Below is a gallery of the most photogenic, including kittens Butterscotch, Marmalade and Orange Soda, Lexie who is cross-eyed but doesn’t know that’s a problem, Oreo who can be called anything but not late for dinner, Tiki the elegant snowshoe and Tinker who still thinks she’s a kitten. The two tuxedo kitties are wearing pink scarves with polka dots which works well for basically black kitties, helping them to stand out. All are tested for FIV/FeLV and are up to date on their vaccines, most are spayed and neutered if old enough. You can find their descriptions on the Purr-fect Paws Kitty Adoptions PetFinder Page.
Jordan is too sexy for his blanket! He loves to stay in his carrier but he’s happy to come out and perform, and he’s big and friendly and affectionate. Jordan was rescued and vetted by Frankie’s Friends.
Animals Against the Odds
Honey is a full-blooded Bengal cat who was surrendered to a shelter! She specializes in knocking things down from great heights and telling you what to do all day long, and is up for adoption to a home that understands the needs of the energetic and intelligent Bengal cat. Below, Hope is a friendly, affectionate goof who loves to be held, loves to play and loves other cats. Both cats and more are available through Animals Against the Odds Rescue and Rehab.

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.
