Cristiana Peña & Tom

Tom is a prince, but Amelia was a queen. She came first. It’d been just the two of us for years when a (now ex) boyfriend was added to the mix. About a year later, he and I were at the beach one day when I received an email from a friend about a cat […]

Niki Larson & Louie, Moose, Otto

“Moose was definitely an impulse adoption if there is such a thing. I’ve always been a crazy animal lover so all it took was my cousin visiting from DC saying her new kitten was the best decision she ever made to convince me it was a great idea. And it was. Our first year together […]

Amber Schaefer & Max

  “Max is a bodega cat. I had just broken up with a guy after realizing I liked his cat a lot more than I liked him, and was looking to adopt a kitten ASAP, despite not only my allergy to cats but also my friend’s dad’s warning that “if I got a cat I’d […]
