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.

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.

Kristin Golembiewski & Harry

  “One year after I moved to NYC, the man I moved here with and I ended our romantic relationship. We continued to live together, with no disdain for one another but not entirely sure of how to move forward from there. One Sunday afternoon in June, we browsed one of the many street fairs […]

“I’m 35 weeks pregnant living in Williamsburg in a spacious, sunny duplex that Chickpea, my husband and I are very proud to call home. I adopted Chickpea through Brooklyn Animal Action when she was less than a year old, but she had already had at least one litter of kittens! A plumber working in a projects […]
