Obituary for Charlie Hartman
Charlie Hartman started life as a feral kitten in Churchill, PA. He was trapped by Pittsburgh TNR. He was posted on the Pittsburgh TNR as an older kitten who would need some help adjusting to a loving human home. His adoptive parents Denise and Bill Hartman of Southside Slopes, Pittsburgh welcomed him into their home.

At first, he was frightened and trembled when held. He grew into a sassy opinionated cat who was known to physically push out family who dared to sit in any of his preferred places. He also made his displeasure known if a favorite pillow was moved.

He had a discerning palate and would only eat grain free chicken cat food. He hated seafood and actually backed up from his food bowl when served wet seafood flavored cat food. His guilty pleasure was stealing leftover pizza crusts from the pizza delivery box.

He was a work in progress. His feral tendencies only allowed him to cuddle with his adoptive mother and father for brief periods of time. After each cuddle session, Charlie would bite whoever was holding him. It became a game with his mom to sidestep his bites until he stopped biting and just walked away. He always gave her a dirty look after those episodes.

Even with his feral inclinations, he was a loving cat and brought joy to his adoptive parents. He met them every morning at the bottom of the stairs rolling around and showing his belly. He also made sure that his parents never forgot to feed him his wet cat food and he wasn’t above lying about being fed. This culminated in him being fed extra times a day.

Charlie was a beautiful cat who was loved and will be greatly missed. He is survived by his mom and brother who live in a Feral Colony in Churchill, his half-sister Lilly who lives in an adopted home in Churchill and his adopted family in the Pittsburgh Southside Slopes.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made to the Homeless Cat Management Team
