Bianca Monica & Lamb

“I was never a cat person. I grew up with two big black labs when I was young, and after that, a little shih​-t​zu named Kingston. But my fears of becoming a cat lady changed this year. Last spring, my roommate’s girlfriend, Carli, found a litter of kittens behind bushes up against a barn in […]

Ashley Meyers & Oliver

“One evening about a year ago I was walking with some friends in Brooklyn heading to some get-together, when this little peanut ran up to us out of nowhere meowing purrrfusly while staring into my soul. I was apparently born with the gift of an aura that attracts kitty cats where ever I go. This […]

Meghan Farrell & Blue

“Blue and I found each other last September. Every day I’d take the subway at Union Square, and almost every day I’d see her playing in her cage. She was with a woman who was offering cats for adoption. The kittens in other cages slept peacefully. Blue, however, was a pistol. She would try to […]

Kacy Shelton, Mim & Fiona

“Five years ago, I was a sophomore in college, and I was desperately needing a cat in my life. My roommate had a tragic cat allergy, so after months of searching, I found this sweet hypoallergenic naked purple kitten. I remember being really confused about the direction I should pet her. She had barely any […]

I promised my hubby we’d get a cat as soon we got married and literally two days after our wedding we adopted these brother and sister cats. […]

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 […]

Kate Hyatt & Rufus

“Rufus is the warmest, sweetest, coolest living creature. He carries dollar bills or toy mice around in his mouth all the time. I’m obsessed with the long, huge chunks of hair that eek out of his paws. He often slips around the wood floors and into a room, all Cosmo Kramer-like. His purr machine turns […]

Elvy Yost & Rubbish

  “It was a cold and lonesome winter, and I was playing a pet owner in a wonderful play. The bohemian unguessable will-o’-the-wisp life of an actress had convinced me I couldn’t be a pet owner in real life, but I was about to be surprised. One cold and rainy morning that winter, thanks to […]
