“Kaitlyn was one of the nicest, most compassionate, quirky, fun-loving, humorous, neurotic, and cutest girls I have ever met.”

And Kaitlyn loved all cats, even most of them would never take a second look.

A friend of “the shy, shy and savage”

Kaitlyn had cared for cats and kittens for years and had a deep love for bottle babies, grumpy cats, and “the vanquished and the sick – but her favorite, and possibly best, work was with the shy, shy, and savage.”

A kind and gentle soul, Kaitlyn had a way of calming the most nervous kittens, and her magical touch earned her a reputation as a “kitten whisperer.”

“She had a saint’s patience for these kittens and loved their ‘mittens’, ‘peanut butter cups’ and ‘little men’ (as she called them) so much.”

Kaitlyn was employed as a veterinary nurse in the anesthesia department at Ryan Veterinary Hospital, University of Pennsylvania, healing animal life on both a professional and personal basis. She leaves behind a fiance, family, and friends who loved her sunshine soul and compassionate heart.

Heartbroken over the loss of Kaitlyn, the shelter staff felt, “Her life was important to so many and she changed so many lives forever. It doesn’t have to stop … we can continue to do good in her name … “

To honor Kaitlyn’s memory and work with cats, Randall’s Rescue set up the Kaitlyn O’Hara Fund to help care for sick and feral cats.

“Please donate what you can to a fellow animal who risked their lives to help an animal in need. Who always loved those who no one else wanted? “

These feline souls, whom Kaitlyn once helped in peace, must have been waiting for them and now love them again as we mourn their loss. Kaitlyn O’Hara, the “kitten whisperer,” will forever be remembered for her kind heart and compassion for animals.
