I started Girls and Their Cats on Instagram two years ago as a way to showcase cat ladies in a positive light. These are some of the most heartwarming stories from the series. You can also see my post here. More info: Instagram girlsandtheircats. This post may include affiliate links. It was right next to this abattoir and around it there lived a colony of feral cats.
They probably thrived from the waste of the pigs slaughtered there. They all looked tough as hell. One day my friend Agi and her boyfriend at the time had a new cat mom and her kittens arrive on their doorstep. A friend of theirs had found her and dropped her off. She was no doubt from the colony, a beautiful pale grey calico with exotic light green eyes and orange ringlets on her tail. They named her Nala. I remember going down through the maze-like hallways of The Coffin Factory to her unit. There were 6 kittens and they were all nuts, one climbing on something, a couple napping on the couch, another chasing a toy across the floor, they were everywhere.
Anyone who spends enough time with him falls completely in love. He tends to really affect people and share special moments with them. I feel very lucky that I get to be his cat mama. She plays guitar in a Canadian indie rock band called Dusted. We knew we wanted to rescue and that perhaps we wanted a grey cat. So, I went and met the cats Eva had and fell in love with a little playful Russian Blue. He had been rescued from the streets of Bushwick and was only 2 months old at the time. Spencer my then boyfriend, now husband came to meet him and we agreed.
This was it. A few days later Eva brought him to our apartment on North 7th and Bedford and we fell in love. Hard love. But we noticed something was different about this cat. Were his eyes a little brighter? Was his face a little rounder? Whoever he is we love him!
We named his Schiaparelli after the deer Elsa Schiaparelli. I told Spencer we would either name our future child Schiap or our cat…he could chose. He chose the cat. A few days went by and Schiap made himself feel at home. He slept on our laundry bags and pawed at our feet as we walked by him.
She gave us the wrong cat!!! The s of the cat we chose and the cat she gave us were just reversed. She apologized profusely and told me she would come by that afternoon to swap the cats out. At that point we had already fallen in love with Schiap and figured it would be awful to send him back. We kept him and we are SO happy we did. He wakes me up at least 3 times a week asking to be spooned back to sleep.
At that point I have to put my arm around him or the bites start! I'd like to share my cat with you: P4bc6e Not knowing at the time that there was a reason they put him on craigslist. He was a giant. He is now full grown at a lean 30lbs. So, when Oscar was about 3 or 4 he started limping. Debating for a long time about surgery and success rates I was eventually talked into it by my cousin who is an orthopedic vet surgeon. One and done. He ended up having 4 surgeries last year. It brings me to tears just thinking about it.
It would have been impossible without the help of family and friends most definitely my cousin and her hospital staff at Cornell Vet Specialist in Stamford.
He became their favorite patient. With all the complications he actually ended up living at the hospital getting constant care for one month on two separate occasions. He even had acupuncture 3 times a week. It was almost impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel at many points.
On the day he had a successful x-ray — after the 4th surgery — it was the best feeling. I made him a hat for that day, a kitten cake, tons of cat nip and had some champagne. He just celebrated his 7th birthday.
He has touched many lives. Mostly mine. But when I went to the shelter I found Bandit, a 6-month-old blind cat, the shelter worker said had been there for months. No one wanted him. It broke my heart and even though I was looking for a kitten I took him. He is the most special boy in the world. As soon as I pick him up he collapses in my arms purring, and always finds his way to nestle in my arms at night.
I got Daisy when she was about 4. So, I took them both to avoid them going to a shelter.
It was just a few months after my childhood cat Lou died at Daisy had a great life living outside hunting squirrels and birds in Massachusetts. She would literally swallow them whole!
I was devastated. I met with experts at the vet and ed community boards and it turns out that Daisy will live a fairly normal life, but she has to be an inside cat to avoid injury and transmission. It was a long hard adjustment for us. Every day she would cry and scratch at the window screens and try to sneak out.
Eventually after moving back to NYC she has gotten used to her simple life playing with fake mice and laser pointers. She has been living with FIV for 7 years now and all her tests come back great. She is the best cat, and my best friend. She has been through everything with me. Although I am starting to think more about it because she is about 11 and I know the time will come sooner than later. When my mother Donna passed away suddenly last month, I had the responsibility to re-home her cats in the middle of everything else that was going on.
She had five! Two ladies that we got when I was in high school, and three siblings from one of them.
They were her joy and companions, and it was so important to me to find safe and stable homes for them. She would always send me photos of them curled in her lap, or hamming it up, and tell me whatever antics they were getting up to. We joked that she would have to mail one to NYC. When she passed away, it felt like the right thing to do to adopt one of them. Her brother is a lot more social, happy and almost comically beautiful. And my decidedly not-a-cat-person boyfriend Max even took to her right away it was her giant cartoon eyesso little Frik flew with us from Oregon to New York.
They have bonded already and it warms my heart. Sometimes I just sit and pet her and imagine my mom doing the same thing just a month ago.Women that look like cats
