Naomi Fry, Nina, Roo & Matilda

  “Our cats, Roo and Matilda, are both very good girls, but they’re also two very different types. Roo is a large tabby. People always think she’s a man and I always get a little offended for her. She looks very dependable — she has the face of someone you’d ask to watch your laptop […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Alvina Bokhari & October

“I met baby October on the eve of my 21st birthday. He was the best birthday surprise! October was found inside a cardboard box behind an office in Long Island. As soon as I held him I was so in love. This is a new experience for me because October is my first pet. I […]

Molly Young & Helen

  “Helen is an Abyssinian with a facial expression that ranges from “faint distaste” to “diabolical contempt”. Helen is quite small; she was the runt of the litter. I love how she looks like a hieroglyphic of a cat. She is curious and enjoys playing fetch. Her favorite human food is cantaloupe with a dab […]

Dinah Eke & Wolfie

  “I walked into the shelter with every intention of bringing home a fat Russian Blue kitty I had seen on their website. Before I had a chance to meet said kitty, the proprietor pulled me aside and asked if I was open to looking at another cat. I assumed she would show me another […]
