Christina Lundy, Mollie Bernstein, Bean & Remy

Erica Prince & Boofy

  “I grew up with cats- our somewhat socially inept cat named Camouflage chose me to be her human when I was 5 years old- she lived in my room exclusively and I fell asleep with her on top of me every night throughout my childhood. As a young woman, I was always waiting until my […]

Naomi Fry, Nina, Roo & Matilda

  “Our cats, Roo and Matilda, are both very good girls, but they’re also two very different types. Roo is a large tabby. People always think she’s a man and I always get a little offended for her. She looks very dependable — she has the face of someone you’d ask to watch your laptop […]

Kate Ruppert & Smalls

  “I love weird shit. Mark Ryden and Marion Peck art, skulls, rad taxidermy, ugly beauty. I honestly don’t think anyone knew of hairless cats until Austin Powers came out. I certainly didn’t.

Ilana Dadras & Maloos

“Maloos is the biscuit-making champion of Sullivan Street, with tiny folded gray ears, an incredible vocal range and a fluffy, raccoon-striped tail. She is at once moody and loving, independent and loyal. She’ll awake from a deep slumber to follow me off the couch no matter what, as if she can’t bear to imagine me […]

Ana Coccioletti & Tabitha Potato

  “I grew up with cats but took a break after my sweet childhood cat passed away a few years ago. It took a *very* influential visit to a cat cafe in Tokyo to get me thinking about cats again. My boyfriend surprised me with baby Tabitha Potato after a month of back and forth […]

Sara Anderson & Loki

  “This cat has more personality and sass than any animal I have ever met. We are inseparable. We are best friends. Loki came into my life shortly after I moved to Syracuse, NY with my boyfriend Brent, who was working on completing a graduate program at the time. We are both from Minnesota and […]
