What the heck is Kitty.Town?

Kitty.Town is an online community founded May 1st, 2017 on the concepts of kindness, empathy, and putting general goodness out into the world. We started as a small Mastodon instance to provide a space free of abuse in response to other instances' tolerance of hate speech and harassment. But very soon we saw potential for something we could build on and create a support network over multiple networks and spaces.

And unlike most spaces on the internet, we don't pull our punches, especially where Nazis are concerned. We see the value in organizing to help lift others up and improve both ourselves and the world, as well as the value of having a place to post your cat photos/selfies/etc in peace. (And of course, all pets are welcome. Not just cats.)

Why should I join?
