Even though business operations have changed for public safety, we are still adopting cats with our Wayward Whiskers partner group. Do you need a support animal to help you through this stressful pandemic and quarantine?
Cat therapy is pretty powerful. See for yourself.
Who provides the cats? What care has been provided to the cats?
Our cats are provided by Wayward Whiskers Animal Rescue, a non-profit, no-kill, all volunteer foster cat rescue in Westmoreland County. All cats receive several medical services to make them adoption, including the following:
All cats and kittens have been fostered for at least 3 weeks to allow ample observation time for illness, temperament, and to socialize the cat.
Current on age appropriate vaccinations- including feline distemper and rabies vaccines
Tested negative (unless otherwise noted) for FIV and feline leukemia.
Flea treated and wormed (and antibiotics if needed for illness).
What is the adoption process?
You can fill out a digital adoption application linked or at Wayward Whiskers' website and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org
This will expedite the process for you if you fill it out once you begin considering a cat, even if you haven't decided on one yet. Once you have completed your adoption survey, a Wayward Whiskers volunteer will contact you via phone/email only if you are APPROVED or if there are any questions regarding your application. Please be patient and kind to our WW volunteer superheroes. They work really hard and try their best to respond to applications within 3-4 business days, but that is not always possible.
If you are specifically interested in one of our café cats, you must visit the café to meet the cat(s). WW will not approve the adoption of any café cat unless the adopter has met the cat in its home environment at the café. Adoptions always go to the “best fit home,” not the order submitted. WW has final determination on all adoption approvals, and if they feel the cat you would like is not the best fit, they will work to help you find the feline who best matches your needs. Wayward has over 120+ cats at any given time- so you will have a lot to choose from! Remember, it’s about helping connect people and cats – we want you to find a fantastic feline, and we want the cats to live long and happy lives, too.
Once your survey is approved and you are matched with the “best fit” cat, WW will arrange your adoption either at Cattfeinated Cat Cafe or PetSmart in Greensburg. Times will be arranged between you and the WW volunteer.

What do I bring with me on adoption day? What should I have prepared?
Most important is a cat carrier! You may not leave the adoption site without one.
Bring cash, check, or a credit card to pay the adoption fee ($125 or $180 for 2 cats).
Prepare your home for a cat by acquiring cat essentials: cat food, food/water dishes, litter box, litter, flea treatment, cat brush, nail trimmers, scratcher toys, etc. Adopters often ask what food and litter we provide at the cafe so they can be consistent when the cat goes home. Our cats are fed Rachel Ray Nutrish (Chicken and Brown Rice), and we use .
Call a veterinarian to establish care for your cat. We recommend having the cat checked by a veterinarian within 7-14 days of adoption.
