What's with All the Kreepsville Cats?
If you're a fan of Kreepsville and follow us on Instagram, TikTok, or Facebook, you may have noticed some feline faces sneaking into our content. Though Kat-Spex are a product that our team of diabolical designers dreamed up just for April Fools, the models are some of our very real furry friends!
So, what's with all the kittens?
As a company, Kreepsville has always been animal-friendly, against animal cruelty, and supportive of pet adoption. After all, what self-respecting witch doesn't have a black cat familiar or demonic dog? (You won't be surprised to hear that our office dog is named "Fluffy" and keeps our designers on task.)
LA's Feral Cat Problem
With our relocation to our East Los Angeles home, we have been faced with a sad reality. According to LAMag, though there isn't an exact count, Los Angeles county may have several million feral cats.
And this means that every year, thousands of cats are born on the streets and many don't make it to their first birthday. The ones that do survive often live short, difficult lives full of hunger, disease, and danger. And we can see this right in our own backyard.
So Kreepsville decided that we needed to do something to help. And what better way to give back then by doing what we do best: creating cute, spooky content featuring some of these very special kitties!
Giving Back to Our Community
Kreepsville has supported several local kitten rescues and shelters in Los Angeles to help address this problem. We have donated money, supplies, and our time to support their efforts.
In addition, we have used our social media platforms to raise awareness about the issue of homeless cats in Los Angeles and encourage our followers to adopt from their local shelter or rescue organization.
Kreepsville Foster Animals
But why stop there? We believe that every cat deserves a loving home, so we have also been rescuing kittens from the streets and finding them forever homes. And these are the foster kittens you may have noticed in our feed or poking their curious noses out the peek-a-boo hole in our front window.

Adopt, Don't Shop
If you're thinking about adding a feline friend to your family, we urge you to adopt a pet from your local shelter or animal rescue organization. There are so many adoptable pets in Los Angeles in need of homes, and you can be sure that you're giving a deserving animal a second chance at life.
And if you're not ready to go through the adoption process, you can still help by volunteering at your local shelter, donating money or supplies, or spreading the word about the importance of adopting from shelters.
Together, we can make a difference in the lives of cats and dogs in need and find them the loving homes they deserve.
Spay and Neuter Your Pets
In addition to adoption, another important way to help reduce the homeless cat population is to have your pets spayed or neutered. By ensuring that your animals can't have kittens of their own, you can help reduce the number of cats born on the streets each year.
Not only will this help reduce the feral cat population, but it can also improve your cat's health and behavior.
So next time you see one of our Kreepsville cats pop up in your feed, remember that they aren't just cute, they're also helping to make a difference.
How to Get Involved: Kitten Rescue Volunteers
If you're interested in getting involved with kitten rescue in your community, there are many ways to do so. You can donate money or supplies to a local shelter or rescue organization, volunteer your time to help socialize adoptable pets, or use your social media platforms to raise awareness about the issue.
A kitten needs a lot of care, and not everyone is able to adopt a pet. That's where cat foster homes come in. Foster homes are people or families who take in kittens (or older cats) until their adoption into their forever home.
This can be a great way to help out local shelters and rescues in Los Angeles, and it's also a great way to socialize kittens and get them ready for their forever homes.
Kitten Rescue Organizations
Here are some organizations we support:
3519 Casitas Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90039
Kitten Rescue is a Los Angeles non profit volunteer-run organization devoted to find loving homes for cats and kittens who have been abandoned or are unwanted. They rescue cats and kittens from the streets of Los Angeles and from City Shelter euthanasia facilities.
7680 Clybourn Ave, Los Angeles, CA 91352
FixNation's aim is to create a better world for cats where all tame cats have homes, and community cats are spayed and neutered and cared for in their outdoor colonies. Their mission is to reduce the number of homeless felines in the community by sterilizing as many as possible while demonstrating the effectiveness of colony management and Trap-Neuter-Return to ensure the humane care of feral cats.
