Bushwick

Stella Rose Saint Clair, Filbert, George, Teddy, Beeboo & Joey.

I grew up in a one-bedroom apartment with 8 cats in place of siblings, so sharing a living space with Filbert, Beeboo, Teddy, Joey, and George, is more like second nature to me than having human roommates.  The tabbies, Teddy and George, are the most outgoing. They’re only a few months apart in age. Filbert […]

Bridget Badore & Queso

I’ve been obsessed with cats since I was really young—I would only allow “kitty” stuffed animals in my toy arsenal. I used to doodle cats all the time and when I was around 6 or 7 my mom finally got me a cat of my own. He was a cute little orange tabby that we […]

Silvia Orozco & Hayley

Hayley is tiny but mighty. She is a little orange lady (only 5.5lbs) with ears that tower above her little head and huge eyes that only add to her charm. Although she’s such a tiny cat, she is the boss. Every day, Hayley makes her rounds through the apartment as she constantly meows. Just like […]

Mallory Heyer, Sinopa & Tesla

During my junior year of college, my roommate and I had such a bad mouse problem that I started calling the mice my other roommates. My human roommate and I went to the animal shelter because they had a BOGO on cats that day. How could we resist? I saw Sinopa in her little box […]

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 […]
