I have two kids, Paige and Aidan, a husband, 10 cats, a rabbit, a snake and anywhere from 1 to 25 fosters in a 900 square foot ranch with a finished basement. I've worked in social services for the last 20+ years. I currently work full time for Social Security. It's all a little blurry, but in early 2021, someone gave me a litter of kitties. I found homes for them. Then, someone else gave me another litter. We had all been basically home bound because of the "pandemic" and I was growing bored. One night, around 3am, I woke and couldn't get back to sleep. I thought of just starting a rescue and that was pretty much that. I blew up the Facebook world with posts, followed other rescues, and picked up a lot of amazing folks to come along for the ride with me.
Helping animals today is my way of trying to fix what I couldn't as a child.
I live in Forward Township with my husband and our 3 young boys, 3 dogs and 9 cats. I started working with Fur All Kittys in November of 2021. At the time, I only volunteered to transport cats on clinic days. Little did I know what I was getting myself into. Hence, how we went from 3 cats to 9 within a year.
I work full time as a toddler teacher. If I'm not at work, I might be at home scooping cat poop. I love to laugh, take pictures, sing and dance (not very well) and most importantly I love being with my boys and our animals. My home is my favorite place to be.
My wish is that more husbands would be on board with the number of animals their wives want to rescue.
I live in Jefferson Hills with my husband and 2 middle school boys. We currently have 5 cats, some fish, a gecko and even a snake.
We started volunteering with Fur All Kittys when my older son showed interest in helping animals. Soon, both boys were joining our weekly volunteering to scoop poop and scratch ears. At the time, all the kitties were caged. We're so proud and impressed with the growth of Fur All Kittys and Misty's vision to have the cats in free roaming rooms.
Professionally, I am a Tax Manager specializing in not-for-profit tax, so naturally was pulled in to help as the treasurer.
I joined Fur All Kittys in July 2022 and am thrilled to be a part of this organization. I am a full time Registered Nurse with a second shift craft business making photo albums, journals, and other paper crafts. I also volunteer many hours per week as Secretary of the Board for Fur All Kittys, feeder, socializer, trapper, fundraiser, and kitty foster mom.
I married a wonderful man who has graciously spent the better part of the last 30+ years putting up with my attempts to feed and save the animal kingdom from injured chipmunks and bunnies to hungry turkeys, deer and of course all the lost kitties.
Our home in the South Hills is the family homestead where I grew up with my brother and sister, and where my husband and I raised two beautiful daughters. We now share Sunday dinners with our girls, their husbands and our soon to be teenage granddaughter.
Growing up, our home was the one where all the lost and unwanted puppies and kitties found their way to. Our parents were animal lovers and showed us how important it was to help whoever showed up looking for love and a meal. We currently have five indoor kitties of our own including two with special needs, five ferals - all of whom have been spayed/neutered and vetted. You can also find multiple foster kitties running the hallways of the homestead at any time, waiting for the time they can find their very own fur-ever home.
I am married and have a son (Jasiah) along with 2 dogs (Coco and Max). I work full time for the Commonwealth of PA with the Bureau of Child Support Enforcement. I lost my identity years ago when I became a mom and can no longer remember what I enjoyed. I am the BFF of the founder (Misty) and have been a volunteer at Fur Al Kittys since it began in July 2021 (even though I'm allergic to cats).
I came into the cat world a little later than most of the people in rescue. My journey started when my sister found an abandoned kitten in a barn 2 years ago and since then I have fully embraced the cat lady life. I live in Brentwood with my fur kids: Raja (dog), Akela, Saya, Rue and Mazari and we usually have a number of fosters staying with us at any given time.
In the real world I spend my days working as a nurse, and I guess it only makes sense that I end up fostering the injured and sickly kittens that we get in. I joke that at least my nursing degree was good for something, but while taking care of these kittens is exhausting it's also one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
Being a part of the medical team at Fur All Kittys has taught me so much. I love learning and researching new information so that I have the tools and resources to help the next cat that comes through our doors.
I started volunteering at the rescue when I was selling extra building supplies on Facebook and Misty reached out to see if I was interested in donation. I started volunteering in July of 22 and then it just progressed into becoming the Volunteer Coordinator.
In my regular life I work full time in finance at a Pittsburgh company. I'm married with three fur babies (two of which are foster fails from the rescue).
I live in Munhall with my husband Joel and our dog Romeo and cats Cali Cool J, Gus, and Petey. All my life I've loved animals, having had cats growing up and pet sitting for the neighbors.
My career has been in human and social services for 20 years while working in Cat Rescue has been something new.
I started working at the rescue in June 2022 after finding Fur All Kittys and helping my mom adopt two torties.
My current wish is that more humans have a greater respect for all animals.
