Tea Leigh & Mush

“Mush was found at a meat packing plant somewhere outside of Philly by some union workers who took him in, got him back to health and then sent him to the shelter. They found him with a bum eye, eatin’ street meat. Mush came into my life when I met my partner. He had had […]

Nadia Quinn, Pierre & Clementine

  Pierre and Clementine (formerly known as Tony and Diamond- obviously fresh off a former kitten-life as Vegas Show Cats) came into our home in 2009 at 8 weeks old. 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 […]

Christina Grasso & Betty

“Two years ago, I underwent a lengthy hospitalization for anorexia. It was a huge disruption having to suddenly take a leave from work and put a pause on my life for 3 months, and I was not thrilled to say the least.  I had weekly visits from therapy dogs which I loved, because I was […]

Jen Hsieh, Bubba & Jeff Goldblum

“We first welcomed Bubba, our 12-year old, flat-faced, grandpa of a cat, into our lives after his first human passed away and then was bullied by other cats at his second home. He was too big to fit into a cat carrier, so when his second human’s car arrived to drop him off, Bubba was […]

Cat Corcoran & Pearl

“I had the incredible fortune of adopting Pearl from my best friend Jordyn, who travels more often than not. And while not a typical adoption scenario, the saying ”Cats find you” couldn’t be more true. Pearl made her way from Mansfield, Ohio (which isn’t far from my hometown of Pittsburgh, PA) to the Upper East […]

Rebecca Henderson, Dizzi & King

“In 2010, I wandered into Kitty Kind, a cat adoption organization run out of the PetCo at Union Square. A couple of years prior, my friend had adopted sibling cats and raved about them constantly so I was looking for two related or bonded kittens/cats. I had been looking for almost a year but hadn’t […]
