Rose Smith, Lola & Bandit

I adopted Lola and Bandit on July 20th, 2013. I’d always had cats and dogs growing up, and I missed having a pet so much. I was learning more about rescuing animals and the statistics on how many animals are in shelters or euthanized, while more and more puppies and kittens are being bred, were […]

Renee Chen, Arya & Temujin

Temujin and Arya are really my step kids. My husband rescued them from his ex girlfriend. Spending over $10,000 in Chinese bribes to get them out of Asia and into the United States during his tumultuous repatriation, he crash landed in New York City and into my life.  The first time I met these babies […]

Jen Murphy & Basil

  Basil and I found each other when he was only 5 weeks old. A friend posted him on Facebook because his mom and siblings had been hit by a car and he needed a home fast. I offered to foster him and when he was dropped off at my place I learned he had […]

Beth Ryan, Fez, Grendel & Inkling

  Grendel, Inkling and Fez each chose me. The siblings during a Singaporean monsoon. And Fez on a hot night in McCarren Park. Three cats is a lot of cat. But I couldn’t live without these little furballs. Fez was born and raised in Williamsburg. My brother and sister-in-law and I found him as we […]

Marissa Baca, Gatsby, Rae & Lola

I have three amazing cats Gatsby, Rae, and Lola. All three of them have insanely different personalities while meshing with each other purrfectly. Having three cats is better than having one. I’m never bored and I have a special relationship with each of them. They really balance each other out.  When I’m playing with all of […]

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 […]
