Joyce Lee & Panda

  I’ve always loved animals, but never had a cat growing up. One time when I was a child, we found a neighborhood cat roaming around in our garden and I had the idea to “keep it” in our garage. The cat stayed in there with me for a few hours until my parents opened […]

Cydney Russell & Tali

My law school days had me yearning for a little creature to take care of and after being swayed out of taking on the responsibilities of a dog, I made my way to an adoption event in North Carolina, where I was living at the time. I started playing with an energetic, oversized kitten with a […]

KrisAnne Madaus, Dmitry & Vivian

Dmitry (Meech) and Vivian are both rescues from the Wisconsin Humane Society. Meech’s previous family surrendered him because they were moving, but he, Vivian and I journeyed as a happy trine from Wisconsin to New York so that I could attend grad school. 15 hours in a rental car with no problem on the road.

Ellen Rose & Fritz

You’ve probably noticed that Brooklyn is home to thousands of stray cats. They’re adorable, but they’re also resourceful and territorial creatures who maintain their family units in colonies. Our cat is from such a colony. In fact, he was born in our back patio. My husband Sam and I had been routinely feeding a sweet […]

But I couldn’t live without these little furballs. Fez was born and raised in Williamsburg. My brother and sister-in-law and I found him as we […]

Afsy Kafei & Lucy

“I adopted Lucy from the humane society in Central Florida when she was just a little tiny kitten.  Since then, we’ve seen five different apartments, two different states, and 6 years of morning snuggles.  Lucy is what I would call the epitome of sassy.  Always playful, and always with a mind of her own, I’ve […]

Athena Wisotsky & Frikki

“I’ve wanted a cat of my own for so long, but I’ve moved a lot the last three years and there was always something in the way. I never felt settled enough, or the apartment was too small, or my housemates weren’t on board. I have three bodega cats I visit as often as I […]

Sunny Shokrae & Elliot, Huey

“The person I married had three cats and at the time I was worried because I never really understood them and to be honest they frightened me a little. Cats in general seemed so unpredictable and vicious. His 3 cats (one lives upstate now), two brothers that he rescued from the ASPCA and the other […]
