Crown Heights

Karly Anderson, Ansel & Hunter

I moved to New York from Salt Lake City, UT to pursue a career in the arts with my partner Ian in the spring of 2015. We moved, sight unseen, to a 125-square foot windowless studio in Crown Heights. It was so tiny we couldn’t open the fridge the whole way without it hitting the […]

Sibba Hartunian & Huxley

I decided to adopt a cat soon after I moved to New York in 2013. I had always wanted a big, lazy cat to cuddle and watch movies with. I was in for a rude awakening when I brought Huxley home from Animal Care and Control. At almost 19 pounds, he may be considered big […]

Yael Peet, Ted & Hobbes

I am lucky enough to have two boisterous boy cats in my life, very different in personality but equally lovable.  Funnily enough though, my role as cat lady began when I was ten.

It was my junior year in college, and I felt simultaneously compelled to begin volunteering again and severe separation anxiety from having a pet. It was a fairly quick progression into fostering kittens for me. I started fostering 1-2 kittens every few months, […]

Sara Anderson & Loki

  “This cat has more personality and sass than any animal I have ever met. We are inseparable. We are best friends. Loki came into my life shortly after I moved to Syracuse, NY with my boyfriend Brent, who was working on completing a graduate program at the time. We are both from Minnesota and […]

Tea Leigh & Mush

“Mush was found at a meat packing plant somewhere outside of Philly by some union workers who took him in, got him back to health and then sent him to the shelter. They found him with a bum eye, eatin’ street meat. Mush came into my life when I met my partner. He had had […]
