Daily Photo: A Bunch of Kittens and Cats!

Adopt me, pleeeeeze!
Adopt me, pleeeeeze!

I managed to get one volunteer night at the clinic recently. It was last weekend and there were soooo many kitties, but I haven’t had a chance to share them here. So I decided this post would just be the kittens and cats who were at our clinic on that day. Several have already been adopted, others have gone off to foster homes or to offsite adoption opportunities. There are plenty of rescued kitties who need a home, so if you see one you’d like to adopt you can find them on Pittsburgh C.A.T.’s Petfinder page.

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.

Other ways you can help

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.

HCMT 2017 Wish List:

2017 Feral Cat Wish List:

2017 Foster Wish List:

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.

  • Bernadette, I want them all. How precious. Spot is a character, and I’ve never seen so many gorgeous gingers in one place. You are so kind to volunteer. I pray every one of them soon has a loving home.

    • Janet, not only are they cute, but they are gragarious, playful and affectionate. I’ll be writing about these kittens soon, from a group of 48 abandoned kittens who were all very ill. They are also miracle kittens.

    These are some amazing kittens. If I could, I’d scoop them all up and love them forever. *PRAYERS* for them ALL to find loving, permanent homes and be well cared for for life!

    • Thank you, Anonymous! They are so cute they don’t last long once they go up for adoption.
