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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cat Corcoran & Pearl

“I had the incredible fortune of adopting Pearl from my best friend Jordyn, who travels more often than not. And while not a typical adoption scenario, the saying ”Cats find you” couldn’t be more true. Pearl made her way from Mansfield, Ohio (which isn’t far from my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA) to the Upper East […]

Rachel Wright & Mrs. Ralph

“I had been pushing the cat thing for awhile. Sam wasn’t so sure (and possibly allergic). But one day I convinced him to come with me to the @NorthBrooklynCats event at Muddy Paws. And Sam said, “That one.” The fluffiest cat in the place. I went with it. And just like that, we scheduled a […]
