Look at all those faces! Don’t you want to take one or two home? At $20 each and fully vetted, healthy and socialized in a home, what better adoption deal are you waiting for?
Usually you see the kittens rescued and fostered by Pittsburgh C.A.T. because so many come in by rescuers in TNR. Often the adults are too unsocialized or outright feral and are placed back out with a caretaker, but removing kittens from colonies is an important part of the success of TNR and because they are usually young enough to be socialized it’s a good fit with fostering. Besides, who wants to put a cute little fluffball back out on the mean streets?
But there are friendly adults out there, and older kittens and adults who end up frightened or ill in shelters who may never be adopted, so Pittsburgh C.A.T. does its best to take them into foster. Many of these cats have had their own homes before so they know what they’re missing by not having their own homes, and the others are of an age where they would love to have their first, and hopefully only, home.
Like Raptor and Rex here—they had been surrendered to the shelter and from temperament or illness needed out, so they were fostered through Pittsburgh C.A.T. They are just under a year old.
We have many rescued adults, former mom cats like Charm or friendly cats somehow caught up living outdoors, and whole litters of kittens. The more we can place, the more we can save. Each of the cats in the collage at the top has been in one of Pittsburgh C.A.T.’s foster homes and is looking for a forever home, maybe with you! And each one can be adopted for a fee of $20. If you are interested in adopting one or more of these cats through Pittsburgh CAT, fill out an application and one of our members will contact you. All cats are located in the Pittsburgh area.
Visit the Pittsburgh CAT page and message on the photo of the cat you’d like to adopt!

We are overloaded with cute little kittens, but don’t forget the older kittens and adults!
Amazon Wish Lists
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.
