Nica Demaria & Stripe (Kitty)

Ali Kasper, Senator & Francis

Before meeting my girlfriend, I always considered myself a dog person. But when I met her cat–Senator Milk Mann (AKA Milky, Milk Boy, or Senny) –I fell in love.

Eden lost her childhood cat after 22 years and was heartbroken, swearing she could never have another. After a month she missed cats in her life so much she started browsing the adoptable cats section on Craigslist – just to look. “I saw a picture of tiny little 5 week old Ruby who had been […]
