Look at those green eyes! And, the toe beans…
For such a beautiful girl, Clara hasn’t gotten much attention. I hope that’s about to change! Clara’s a young adult, about four or five years old, and while she’s a mellow girl and likes to curl up and relax with you, she’s also really playful and entertaining. Like many rescued cats she may not have socialized to different people and different cats so she can get overstimulated and take a swat now and then when being petted, and tries to keep a distance between herself and other cats. Many foster homes have a lot of cats, something many cats aren’t comfortable with, and that may be the issue. I’ve seen that plenty of times in my large household over the years. With more space and fewer cats she could be just fine.
Because, you see that face, she’s kind of impatiently waiting for you to take her home!
Here’s what his foster person has to say:
Looking for a friendly, mellow companion cat? Meet Clara! This sweet gray and white girl is affectionate and sweet but relaxed about it — just a nice lovely cat who’ll keep you company while you watch TV or read. She loves chin scratches and pets and will come trotting right up for some attention. She has a playful side, too, and loves to bat at a wand toy and toss around little stuffed mice.
Clara would be fine as an only cat, or with another cat who’ll respect her space. Because she gets a little excited sometimes when she plays, she would do best in a home with adults and cat-savvy older kids. Clara is a really lovely little kitty with a beautifully distinctive face who will make someone a really lovely companion. If that’s what you’re looking for, apply for her today at http://tinyurl.com/pghcatapp.
Like all Pittsburgh C.A.T. cats, Clara is spayed, microchipped, dewormed, flea-treated, and up-to-date on all of his vaccinations!
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.
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.

Great Rescues Day Book:
Portraits, Rescue Stories, Holidays and Events, Essential Feline Information, All in One Book
Each month features one of my commissioned portraits of a feline or felines and their rescue story along with a kitty quote on the left page, and on the right page the month name with enough lines for all possible dates, with standard holidays and animal-themed observances and events. Great Rescues also includes a mini cat-care book illustrated with my drawings including information on finding strays or orphaned kittens, adopting for the first time or caring for a geriatric cat, a list of household toxins and toxic plants, or helping stray and feral cats and beginning with TNR.
Each book includes also 10 sheets of my “22 Cats” decorative notepaper with a collage of all the portraits in black and white so you can make your own notes or write special notes to friends.
The portraits in this book, collected as a series, won both a Certificate of Excellence and a Muse Medallion in the 2011 Cat Writers’ Association Annual Communication Contest, as well as the 22 Cats Notepaper mentioned below.
