Eva Goicochea, Winnie & Bea

In 2013, our Persian cat, Olive, passed from polycystic kidney disease (a common disease in this breed). Our other adopted Himalayan cat, Mr. Miyagi, was left as an only feline child. We took a weekend trip and left Mr. with a lot of food and water, but on the way home, we checked on our […]

Nomi Leasure, Atticus & Scout

Atticus (see also: Fatticus; Fatty-Cakes) walked – literally – into my life spring of 2013. On the invitation of a can of tuna served on the front stoop, the bold little thing, just under a year I’d have guessed by weight and length, waltzed into my apartment, at the time shared with three other girls (all confessed […]

Gabrielle Lamontagne & Fievel

Fievel and I met at the Aspca on 92nd street in June 2016. He was barely 2 month old and had tested positive for FIV (which eventually cleared) so he couldn’t share a space with other kittens. He was so playful and not shy at all. I’ve always had cats around me, but Fievel has […]

Rose Smith, Lola & Bandit

I adopted Lola and Bandit on July 20th, 2013. I’d always had cats and dogs growing up, and I missed having a pet so much. I was learning more about rescuing animals and the statistics on how many animals are in shelters or euthanized, while more and more puppies and kittens are being bred, were […]

Renee Chen, Arya & Temujin

Temujin and Arya are really my step kids. My husband rescued them from his ex girlfriend. Spending over $10,000 in Chinese bribes to get them out of Asia and into the United States during his tumultuous repatriation, he crash landed in New York City and into my life.  The first time I met these babies […]

Jen Murphy & Basil

  Basil and I found each other when he was only 5 weeks old. A friend posted him on Facebook because his mom and siblings had been hit by a car and he needed a home fast. I offered to foster him and when he was dropped off at my place I learned he had […]

Beth Ryan, Fez, Grendel & Inkling

  Grendel, Inkling and Fez each chose me. The siblings during a Singaporean monsoon. And Fez on a hot night in McCarren Park. Three cats is a lot of cat. 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 […]

Marissa Baca, Gatsby, Rae & Lola

I have three amazing cats Gatsby, Rae, and Lola. All three of them have insanely different personalities while meshing with each other purrfectly. Having three cats is better than having one. I’m never bored and I have a special relationship with each of them. They really balance each other out.  When I’m playing with all of […]

Elyse Moody & Milly

I adopted Milly in 2012, the year after I moved here from DC, during the Three Kings Day parade in Williamsburg. A friend from Georgia and I dropped by Muddy Paws pet shop for their adoption/David Bowie birthday party event – the posters showed Bowie fishing for cats, which was irresistible. I agreed to adopt […]
