If cats could wear pants then they wouldn't need people.
Unfortunately kitties have not quite evolved into the future of pants wearing conquests yet so, till that day comes, they are in need of food, shelter and loving human beings.
Thus the Los Angeles based "Kitty Pants Foster Project" is born!
While the kitties are doing their best to become complete and self-reliant "pants wearing pros," I've taken on the cause to foster a few in hopes that >>> YOU <<< - my fellow human with a heart full of love - will want to provide one or two whisker faces - a Forever Home of their own.
Please say you do!

Currently Fostering silly Ms. Buggy cat
Is what we are. We tried! And there will be further endeavors in the future. It’s all dependent on the size of the house, the number of rooms, and number of kitts. We currently have no rooms… as it is a loft we live in. I mean, the only room with a door is the bathroom so having a house of two people - one allergic and one essentially broke (me), two kitts - one perpetually crabby and one a dumb handful - would make adding another to quarantine where everyone in the house effectively poops, a logistic nightmare. >^0_o^<
So this story is bittersweet. I had a contact with a Siamese rescue group I was gearing up to work with, among others, when this white trash neighbor (big surprise) knocked on my door with our new housemate, Buggy darling, in hand. Honey Boo Boo’s mom was threatening to take Buggy kitty in to the pound if we didn’t take her. There wasn’t much option so I made the large drink of water give me as much cash as she could for the inevitable vet visit and scolded her about animal responsibility and the small chance Bug would’ve had to live - had she been taken to the L.A. county pound. And that was it. She was on my hands. And I tried a bit to get her adopted out but then there was a month of road tripping the sig other needed us to do - really annoying, and so that time passed and opportunities were missed so she stuck around longer.
There’s also a lot smaller of a network in L.A. for independent fosters, meaning - no Animal Network or ASPCA network, ect … of adoption events to be invited too. Absolutely horrid. L.A. should be ashamed. I digress …
The final straw was my sig other couldn’t separate from Buggy… and the rest is history. A failed foster is not a bad thing. It just meant this Kitty Pants project became more of … or less of a project.
It’s been a time to retool. I suppose this site can be for useful L.A. and beyond info on what to do with the many sad and homeless faces we all run into out in this crazy cruel world. I know the billions of sad stories can burn a person out too so I can pepper in humor. Maybe I can make some time to tool this thing!
Regardless, this isn’t an ending. It’s a beginning, folks. It’s time to focus on the humanity of Trap - Neuter/Spay - Release, campaigns against mills and pet shops, campaigns for adoption, and the re-education of personal responsibility and accountability to all the creatures that are here on the earth with us.
As for this household, Buggy is a fabulous addition to the family. It took some time to train the trailer behavior she was raised with, out of her but she is a brilliant young girl and we love her so darned much! I personally need to find the upper hand in this terrible job market but with a little help of Buggy searching the “Wanteds” for me … I think everything should work out juuuust fine. ;)
Did you know a “good kill shelter” will take an animal in and give it 5-7 days to get reclaimed or adopted out before they destroy it?
These two kitts have been in LA’s animal shelters for two-weeks. That means they need to GTFO of there like today. They’ve overstayed their welcome which means their time is up and they’re somehow, miraculously running on hope and nothing else.
“Dex- friendly, talkative 3 year old male kitty- this boy has a mind of his own, and he likes to tell you what he thinks! Came in as a stray on 2/27- ULTRA URGENT!”
