Jade Taylor, Fredrick & Edie

I adopted Fredrick when I was 17 and he was 2. I had just moved to New York City and I found him via Craigslist because his former owner was moving out of state and couldn’t bring him with her, so I’d like to think the universe brought us together! We were all either of us […]

Allie Wuest & Claude

  “I may be biased, but I think he’s a very special cat. Most people who meet him are surprised that he acts more like a puppy than a cat. He’s truly the most confident cat I’ve ever met—friendly, playful, outgoing. Claude is a ragdoll breed, so he’s “floppy,” meaning he loves to be held […]

Yael Borensztein & Phoebe

  “Growing up, my siblings and I enjoyed the company of geckos, turtles, a DIY backyard pond- never anything furry or snuggly. So not long into my newly independent young adult life, I decided it was time to go in on the real thing and adopt a puppy. Eleven humiliating and angsty days later, I […]

Tiffany Wines & Athena

“I wasn’t looking for a cat when I found Athena. My roommates and I had just moved to Bushwick in mid-may 2016 and unlike the dorms we’d occupied previously we were responsible for furnishing our new place ourselves, which gets expensive fast. Naturally, we turned to Craigslist to see what people were offering to sell […]

Dana Boyer & Peewee

  “Peewee came to live with me after I tried to adopt a kitten in Brooklyn. I was all set to take a kitten and then the guy who had the kitten totally ghosted me so I was in this headspace of “maybe the universe doesn’t think I need a kitten right now”. Some friends […]

Sabina Mamedova & Clementine

  “I call Clementine a trash cat. She was rescued during an awful snowstorm that hit the East Coast five years ago. There were over three feet of snow on the ground and blistering winds. For a few days I watched neighbors feed a small cat hiding between garbage cans right outside of our apartment […]

Ilana Kaplan & Pancake

  “I’ve always been a cat person — I grew up with cats. First there was Sassy, who I named after the cat in Homeward Bound. She had a mean streak, but we had a bond. Then my parents adopted mother and daughter kitties Pandora and Waffle. They were inseparable. But one day someone left the […]

Tyisha Shaia, Ginger, Piper & Brooklyn

  “I like to say I’m a cat person because I’m a Leo and so I’m naturally drawn to my feline friends. I love to lounge and be the center of attention (on my terms) so it makes sense that my animal companions are just like me. As a former zoology major, I find them intriguing […]

Anne Ishii & Natto Bean

“Natto Bean is one of the friendliest animals I’ve ever known and the fact that she is a cat is astonishing but it’s also like…why, of course she’s friendly. Cats aren’t all buttholes. It’s just that my husband Christian and I have known plenty of butthole cats. Dogs and birds, too. In fact, I realized […]
