Elyse Moody & Milly

I adopted Milly in 2012, the year after I moved here from DC, during the Three Kings Day parade in Williamsburg. A friend from Georgia and I dropped by Muddy Paws pet shop for their adoption/David Bowie birthday party event – the posters showed Bowie fishing for cats, which was irresistible. I agreed to adopt […]

Taelor Olive & Momma

I have long feared our feline companions. This lasting fear stemmed from a sleepover I had when I was 5, where I awoke to my friend’s cat directly in my face hissing at me. Cats always seemed a little too sneaky, a little too conniving. In turn, I have done my best to avoid them […]

Eva Karagiorgas, Pixou, Kimou, Buddy & Bumby

My loves Pixou and Kimou are brothers and have the most incredible and odd personalities. Kimou reminds me of a monkey, he’s very playful, kind and intelligent. Sometimes I call him a “him-bo” because he just LOVES attention any way he can get it. Pixou we call the professor. He is refined and has high […]

Jade Taylor, Fredrick & Edie

I adopted Fredrick when I was 17 and he was 2. I had just moved to New York City and I found him via Craigslist because his former owner was moving out of state and couldn’t bring him with her, so I’d like to think the universe brought us together! We were all either of us […]

Allie Wuest & Claude

  “I may be biased, but I think he’s a very special cat. Most people who meet him are surprised that he acts more like a puppy than a cat. He’s truly the most confident cat I’ve ever met—friendly, playful, outgoing. Claude is a ragdoll breed, so he’s “floppy,” meaning he loves to be held […]

Yael Borensztein & Phoebe

  “Growing up, my siblings and I enjoyed the company of geckos, turtles, a DIY backyard pond- never anything furry or snuggly. So not long into my newly independent young adult life, I decided it was time to go in on the real thing and adopt a puppy. Eleven humiliating and angsty days later, I […]

Tiffany Wines & Athena

“I wasn’t looking for a cat when I found Athena. My roommates and I had just moved to Bushwick in mid-may 2016 and unlike the dorms we’d occupied previously we were responsible for furnishing our new place ourselves, which gets expensive fast. Naturally, we turned to Craigslist to see what people were offering to sell […]

Dana Boyer & Peewee

  “Peewee came to live with me after I tried to adopt a kitten in Brooklyn. I was all set to take a kitten and then the guy who had the kitten totally ghosted me so I was in this headspace of “maybe the universe doesn’t think I need a kitten right now”. Some friends […]

Paulina Pinsky & Jack

“My adoration and obsession with Jack Bird Pinsky is unfounded, unprecedented, and confusing, because I am damaged goods. I had a terrorist for a cat growing up. He would bite me on the face if I got too close; my mother would always laugh and say, “That’s a love bite! He loves you!” But I […]
