The summer has been hard on our rescue team & we’re flooded with adoptable kitties, PLUS have a stack of medical bills we need to cover. Our good friend, Sumi is throwing open the doors of her shop in Los Feliz to host a special Save Kittens Shopping party & will be donating 15% of the events sales to help us cover all the rescue medical care.
We’ll be serving meowtini’s & our little loves, Special K & Sugar Pop will be making their 1st public appearance. The kittens have a mild form of cerebellar hypnoplasia, or CH meaning they’re quite small for their age & will alway be a bit “tipsy.” We had a bad scare with Special K which required extra visits to the vet when we feared she had hydrocephalus, or water on the brain. Luckily she passed all her tests with flying colors.
To date our tiny handful of volunteers have helped 776 kitties so far this year. Thanks to our spay/neuter efforts we’ve saved literally hundreds of kittens from being born on the street or ever entering a shelter. As for the babies we’ve managed to rescue, summer can be a hard time for adoptions so our foster’s are packed. This means the funds for medical are going out but we’re not seeing those adoption fee’s which reimburse us for their care coming back in.
Community events are how we keep it all going, so we sincerely hope you’ll grab some friends & join us for a shopping soiree to SAVE kittens!
Spread some good kitty karma! Our Psychic SundayFunday starts at noon & runs until 6 pm on the garden patio @muddypawla.
The Princess of Hollywood, Pleasant Gehman will be giving tarot reading from 3-6, we’ll have the wizard Jason D.MacKean, pet psychic Kait Leonard, metaphysical healer & author Dr. Mary Helen Hensley & more.
From 2-4 our rescue kittens will be making an appearance so swing by for a snuggle, a reading & help us save lives!

Beat the summer heat, shop this best of Made in LA gifts, housewares & meet our rescue kitties who are all looking for FOREVER love!
Our street rescue team has been working overtime this summer trying to fix out neighborhood kitties before more litters are born, but when we find babies on the street, our only option is to scoop them up, make sure they get the medical care they need & find them a loving, FOREVER home! Our adoption mingles are the best way to meet our team, have a personal chat about the responsibility of adoption, or even giving adoption a test drive by fostering.
Some of the kitties are ready to land in their forever homes, for those a little younger, we’ll be screening adopters to pre-adopt! Maybe you’re not ready to adopt, but just want to come out & say hi, learn more about what we do & just how much it helps, OR want to chip in a few $ to support a kitten who need help, everyone’s welcome & our mingles are the perfect way to learn what being an animal advocate is all about. Yes, snuggling kittens is also an option!
You’re INVITED to celebrate Caturday with a chilly glass of wine & enjoy live jazz under the stars at the new Muddy Paw Coffee Eagle Rock!
The night is hosted by Richard Smith, from USC’s Studio Jazz Guitar program, Stig Mathisen of Musicians Institute with special guests dropping by to jam.
Your donation of $5 supports medical care for the kittens & cats rescued from the streets of LA. To date, our tiny, neighborhood team has helped just over 675 kitties in 7 months. Our volunteer work is focused on clearing the shelters by making sure every kitty is spayed or neutered & the most at risk little souls find forever homes.
We hope you’ll come out & help us keep the grassroots rescue work afloat!
The rescue kittens will be adding an extra dose of Friday night @hwdforever for OUT Under the Stars for a special screening of Hairspray (1988) at Hollywood Forever benefitting @lalgbtcenter!

He’s our HERO, he’ll be speaking @catconworldwide, he cares a LOT about helping kitties & @hexenkult along with @storiesbooksandcafe in #echoparkare throwing a very special event Wednesday night.
We’ve been called in waaay too many times to “rescue” a kitty who’s paw parent didn’t think about what would happen to their baby if something happened to them. We’ve had kitties locked up for days in empty apartment because their paw parent didn’t have a plan in place.
Shelters & rescues are already crowded & being a paw parent is much more than just kitty litter & food.
We hope you can join us Wednesday night to learn from the experts how to beat protect your fur babies if you can’t.
Our trappers will be out in Pasadena with @christhecatguy & @myfosterkittens Sunday to help promote the #1 way to #savekittens, #trapneuterreturn!
We get TNR requests from literally everywhere & the reality IS, no rescue can fix all the cats, we all have to chip-in & do our part. It might be a couple of cats behind your apartment building that aren’t ear tipped, the universal sign a cat is fixed already. If they’re not tipped, you’re gonna have kittens, LOTS of kittens & contrary to what some rescues tell you, they’re aren’t enough homes.
The idea of “No Kill” is fuzzy at best. Yes, fosters help a lot, but finding responsible FOREVER homes isn’t always a slam dunk. There’s just under 5 million people in LA & the low estimate is 3 million homeless cats. We’ve seen 1 female cat have 16 kittens in 12 months, now consider all the gals out there who aren’t spayed across the greater LA area, that’s thousands of babies being born & people DO dump adult kitties because they move, get a new partner with “allergies” or they just tried a kitten as a primer for having a human baby, then the cat gets to boot. Then there’s the family that cries about how much grandma loved her cats, but they gotta go ASAP.
Rescues hear it all & shelters aren’t disposal facilities, they should be a safety net for grandma’s cats, but again, reality IS, they get slammed with kittens cuz we’re not doing a good job of bringing spay/neuter to more cats.
We L❤️VE cats & that’s why our trappers are filling a giant void in the rescue community by trapping & fixing as many cats as we can. Almost anyone can TNR, everyone involved in rescue should know how to operate a humane trap & that’s why we’ll be @pasadenahumane Sunday promoting TNR.
Once you see just how many lives you can save if you donate a little time to #fixcats you’ll be hooked too!
We have a hunch there’s a few of you out there who could use some kitten therapy & that’s why every Mother’s Day our kitten cuddle lounge lands @lacountystore.
This is our way of showing all of YOU just how special all the babies we’ve saved from the streets of LA really are. It’s also a nifty way for us to blast our spay/neuter message far & wide.
Trap/Neuter/Return isn’t terribly cute or cuddly, but it’s the #1 way everyone can start saving #savekittens without buying a litter box. We see a whole heck of a lot of cat mom’s who’ve had 2 or even 3 litters per year, it’s tough on them. We also find their itty bitty babies they either discarded or couldn’t care for. We scoop them off the street, trap their mom’s so they’re not continuing to litter the streets of LA with more homeless kitties. Our amazing foster mom’s nurture & shower them with live until they find their forever human parent.
Mother’s Day means a lot to us, so why not celebrate all our human cat mom’s who saved a kitty by adopting, celebrate every kitty who won’t have another litter, PLUS give YOU the opportunity to spend a little time in our kitten lounge snuggling the sweet little souls saved from the streets of LA.
All you need is a $10 kitten live tip & you’re more than welcome to help us promote our mission of #NoMoreHomelessKittens by sharing your kitten cuddle pics far & wide.
Hope you can join us Caturday for a little kitten therapy, cocktails & shop #madeinla @lacountystore.
If you can’t make it, please help #savelives by spreading the message, #spayneutersaveslives.
XO, Luxe Paws
TODAY! We’re giving a crash course in #TNR & you’ll get a sneak peek at the soon to be open @muddypawla Eagle Rock shop.
This is a hands on training where you’ll learn the basics required to help #savekittens by fixing a few neighborhood kitties.
A few of our HERO trappers will be taking your questions & we’ll also be doing a mingle with a few of our adoptable kitties!
You can snag a complimentary tea or coffee with a “kitten tip” & we’ll also be taking final entries to name our newest litter of bottle babies who WILL be making an appearance.
Once you see just how fragile & these sweet little loves are, we’re pretty sure you’ll be inspired to start saving some lives by supporting spay/neuter for every cat.
Can’t make it out, but want to show your support, 🔗 are in our profile or you can Venmo $5 to cover a vaccination. $15 for a car of potty pads, or $25 for a can of kitten formula.
@lacountystore will be hosting an emergency bottling feeding demo pop up Caturday 2pm!
Yes, we’re working like crazy to fix kitties & prevent all the babies from being born on the street, but the reality is, there’s not enough spay/neuter service providers for all cats of LA & we can’t possibly trap 3 million plus cats.
What we need right meow are more people who can step in & successfully keep a teeny little love nugget alive. We’re always saying, sometimes YOU are the rescue & every animal advocate CAN do what it takes to save a little life until they hopefully find support from a rescue.
We also have a mini army of 19 bottle babies & they’ll be making a very special appearance, along with one of our favorite cat guys, @jamesrptx, cat dad to @finforthewin & Luxe Paws alum, Sawyer.
The hands on bottle feeding demo starts promptly at 2 pm & we’ll be serving cocktails & cookies.
Following the event our foster coordinator @jennala will be accepting applications for bottle baby fosters.
Please note, this event isn’t a petting zoo, our goal is to provide hands on training so you’re able to jump in & help save a life.
As much as we adore the little ones, the babies are fragile so attendee’s over 13 years of age is requested.
Hope to see you Caturday!
Our Psychic PawRaiser is happening from noon -6 pm on the garden patio @muddypawla!
White witch Patti Negri from @ghostadventures is headlining the event & LA’s top psychic’s giving readings to help us cover our rescue medical care!

This only happens 3 times per year & it’s always a sell out! It’s also one of the few times you’re able to get up close & personal with Hollywood’s White Witch, Patti Negri from The Travel Channel’s hit show Ghost Adventures.
Our line-up of Psychic’s is top notch & for just $25 you’ll get a 15 minute session PLUS a raffle tickets for prizes.

Lyle wants YOU to join us Caturday night @sumisinlosfeliz for our 4th annual Holiday Shopping Party! Lyle & the rescue kittens will be ready help you pick out all your holiday gifts, @highlandparkbrewery will be serving up libations, and one of our favorite cat guys and adopter, James @finforthewin & Sawyer’s cat Dad will be hosting the frisky festivities.
15% of every purchase benefits our rescue medical care so we hope you’ll #shopsmall and throw your support behind our volunteer effort to #savekittens & make sure the kitties of LA aren’t filling up our shelters with unwanted kittens.
Yes we need help, but no we're not asking you to just hand over $ to cover kitten medical care, you get a GIFT of a Psychic reading from a handful of LA's top Psychic's who also happen to LOVE saving lives.
Patti Negri, from TLC's Ghost Adventures will be once again headlining our spiritual Sunday fundraiser & we'll even have 2 pet psychic's. 100% of the proceeds will go to help us pay off our medical debit PLUS cover medical care for the 12 kittens we just rescued from the street this past weekend.
Every kitten we rescues equals $80-125 just for basic medical care to get them adoption ready. That means we need to scrounge up about $500 just to save a litter of 5 kittens from a life on the street.
So you know, we don't just scoop up kittens, we always find & make sure their momma cat's are spayed so 2-3 more litters won't be born on the street, OR be dumped at our overcrowded shelters.
We're a tiny team of neighborhood volunteers who donate our time to "Clear the Shelters" by making sure kittens aren't suffering on the street & the cats of LA aren't "littering."
You can secure a reading in advance through the EventBrite link, OR swing by from noon- 5:30 pm to learn what the future has in store. Can't make it, you can also just chip-in a few dollars to help out using the EventBrite link.
We'll also be giving away amazing prizes for people & their pets. Every $25 tix gets you 1 chance to WIN a prize!
We get by with a little help from our friends & who doesn't need a a few laughs, especially if it helps us SAVE kittens & fix the kitties of LA!
Grab your friends & head over to The Virgil to celebrate Fur Friday & support the kitties!
We're swamped with kittens & can't cover the medical bills without help from our friends! Hope to see you Friday!
