Bridgett Balliett & Petra

Petra came to be my cat through what always seemed to be divine intervention. She was found as a days-old kitten abandoned by her mother on my family’s farm in 2014. I had actually been hoping and planning to get a dog, but when this tiny crying baby kitty needed a guardian, I decided to […]

Ashley Molesso, Chess Needham & Mafia

Mafia was born on Craigslist in 2012, my junior year of college, or at least that’s how she came into my life. So she might as well have been born there. She was just a kitten that some random woman in Queens was trying to rehome for a friend. As a child, I had a […]

CT Treibel, Amber Hurst Martin, & Jeremy

Jeremy is a ginger prince kitty from Los Angeles. He was saved from a local shelter with his whole litter by a fantastic rescue organization called The Rescue Train. A client of mine knew I was secretly longing for a cat even though I’d never had a pet in my life. Growing up, we weren’t […]

Tatum Mangus & Margot

In 2009, I was living in San Francisco with my boyfriend and three other dudes. One day, we were all hanging out at Dolores Park and we saw this girl selling kittens out of a cardboard box for $10 each. They looked to be just a couple months old; I think the girl with the […]

Ileán Pérez, Millo, Richie Ray & Bobby Cruz

Having animals when I was growing up was a bit of an issue for my parents, but they got used to the fact that I would rescue any cat that crossed my path. And, living in Puerto Rico where the stray population is high, did little to deter me. Fast-forward to my sophomore year in […]

Sandie Cheng & Hygge

Growing up, I had never been a cat person. In fact, I was one of those people who actively disliked cats for no real reason except I liked dogs and only had dogs as pets. Even when I moved to New York City from California, I brought my childhood dog (Dinky, the sweetest Pomeranian) with […]

Ryan Norville & Theo

Until Theo, I had only one other cat in my life. His name was Socks and he lived with me and my mom in the Bronx before she passed away. I remember waking up in the middle of the night and crawling around the house with Socks in the hopes he would think I was […]

Maris Gelman & Miso

Miso’s early life is kinda like the beginning of a Disney movie. I was in Houma, Louisiana two summers ago and it was about to storm. The owner of our BnB said it was going to flood and he knew there were kittens in the backyard. He found four kittens but no mother. It rained […]

Vero Romero & Choi

My partner Jeff and I had just moved in together and were fantasizing about adopting a cat, but we didn’t feel quite ready yet as we were still getting acquainted with our new space and living together. While browsing adoption sites and craigslist purely out of curiosity, we stumbled onto a post about Choi and […]
