Senior cats need homes too!

I feel so awful for some of the senior cats that stay at the kitty lounge. Currently we have three seniors that have been waiting seven months now to be adopted! Donors have sponsored them and paid their adoption fees, yet they are still waiting for their forever homes!

Early this morning I was racking my brain thinking of what I could do to promote the adoption of these seniors. The only thing I came up with so far is this flyer that I designed. If anyone out there reading this has any ideas on how to promote senior adoptions, please let me know!

My Current and Former Foster Kittens

This page will be to post the foster kittens I am currently caring for.

Ernie

Ernie is about 8 months old. He is one of my original Smock foster kittens. Ernie tends to be shy, which is why he is still with me. I’ve been working with him and he’s really coming out of his shell. He doesn’t hide at all anymore and interacts with all the cats and kittens. I am still confused by Ernie! He will follow me  around the house and he always paws at my feet and ankles, like he is trying to get my attention. If I stop and say “Hi Ernie!”, he takes off! Ernie’s favorite things to do is to take naps on the Ikea kitty beds, playing with toys and the other kittens. His favorite toys are a fake kitten named Comet that is battery operated and runs around, and he loves this stupid Halloween skull. He knows how to press the button and a black snake pops out of the skull and says different sayings. Ernie also LOVES to kick cat litter, so I have litter boxes that are covered or have high sides with him!

When Ernie was a tiny kitten, he developed a condition called “cloudy eye” that resulted from an injury to his eye surface. He was treated with antibiotics for several weeks. His left eye still looks like it has a little “cloud” or film in front of it, but it doesn’t affect his vision and it doesn’t hurt him at all. It may go away on its own with time. Ernie has been neutered, treated for worms and fleas, microchipped, is FIV/FeLV negative, and has been vaccinated for rabies and FVRCP.

UPDATE: Ernie was adopted, along with two other male cats all from Pittsburgh CAT. I personally took Ernie to his new home and met his new family, and I couldn’t be happier! Ernie is loved very much and is going to have an awesome life with his two furry brothers!

 Julia

Julia is about 7 months old. She is one of my original Smock foster kittens. Julia was one of my smallest fosters, so she used to be shy, but now that she’s getting a little older she’s really opened up and has become quite the little cuddle bug!  Julia likes to cuddle up in bed with me and likes to get her belly rubbed! Her favorite thing to do is to pop catnip bubbles with the tip of her nose.

Julia is currently listed for adoption on PetFinder. Here is the link: https://www.petfinder.com/cat/julia-40933877/pa/pittsburgh/pittsburgh-c-dot-at-pa967/

UPDATE: Julia was adopted! A very nice woman adopted Julia. This woman already had one older female cat, and she let me know a few weeks after the adoption that Julia settled in perfectly and gets along great with her new sister. Yay for Julia!!!
