Jessica Joiner & Slipper

I found Slipper through the powers of the internet. I was tagged several times in a post featuring 3 street kittens in need of a home. I never really considered myself a cat person, but when I saw this little ginger baby I felt him calling for me. So, I did some research and reached […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
