Ilana Kaplan & Pancake

  “I’ve always been a cat person — I grew up with cats. First there was Sassy, who I named after the cat in Homeward Bound. She had a mean streak, but we had a bond. Then my parents adopted mother and daughter kitties Pandora and Waffle. They were inseparable. But one day someone left the […]

Tyisha Shaia, Ginger, Piper & Brooklyn

  “I like to say I’m a cat person because I’m a Leo and so I’m naturally drawn to my feline friends. I love to lounge and be the center of attention (on my terms) so it makes sense that my animal companions are just like me. As a former zoology major, I find them intriguing […]

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 […]

Pearl made her way from Mansfield, Ohio (which isn’t far from my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA) to the Upper East […]

Olivia La Roche & Mia

Mia was very hard to name so she has a few. Her last name is Bean, so most of the time, it’s “Sweet Bean” or “Mia Bean.” I love Rowan Atkinson’s character Mr. Bean, so that’s where “Bean” comes from. I met Mia on the corner of my old block a few days before I moved […]

Hannah Baxter & Wilson

  “I don’t really remember why I was so determined to have a hairless cat, except for how unique and ridiculous they look, but it didn’t take me long to realize they’re basically a cat-monkey-dog-child hybrid. Now I’m obsessed and follow a ton of other Sphynx on Instagram- a true cat lady through and through. […]
