How did you and your cats first meet? Tell it to us in the form of a short story.

Leela was found, dumped in a gutter outside a mechanics in a very bad way, I was working my first shift at the vet clinic and she came in, half dead with not much hope, but I had to give her a chance. She now has a malformed back leg, a broken tail, and only one eye, but I’ve never looked back.


Snow was abandoned by her previous owners at the house I moved into, we contacted the previous owners and they had no interest in her, but by then, I’d become too attached to this tiny, starving, broken kitty, so I took her in, and now she’s fatter and happier than ever!


What do you think your cats think of you?

To Snow I’m number one everything, to Leela I’m the crap one that gives food and cleans the poop!


Your cats are part of your family. What are some things they do that make you think that consider you part of theirs?

Snow will ALWAYS be by my side, she never lets me out of her sight. Leela will sometimes snuggle and curl up with me, on her own terms.


What are some accounts your cats like to follow on Instagram?

@noodles_strudels @pepperoni_pizzacat


Why do you feel that it is important to show the world that "Cats are Family"?

I think it’s a great initiative and will spread a lot of warmth and joy to a world that really needs it now.
