If you’ve spent much time on the internet you’re probably familiar with Humans of New York, the blog that gives voyeuristic glimpses into the lives of the inhabitants of a city whose size makes it easy to go unseen. If you’ve ever read it and thought “this is great… but it would be better if it was about cats” you’re in luck!
“The woman was complaining about the size of our apartment the other day. She said ‘It’s like living in a little box.’ But she made it sound like that was a bad thing.” – Calvin, Lower East Side A photo posted by Felines of New York (@felinesofny) on
“This block used to be pretty rough. But since I started hanging around, it’s been a lot safer. I stopped a guy from breaking into a car once.” “How’d you do that?” “I circled his legs and started purring. Basically, I melted him.” – Nick, Bushwick A photo posted by Felines of New York (@felinesofny) on
“The questions get old. I don’t have hair like most cats, I get it. Yes, I’m cold sometimes. No, I don’t feel naked. But does any of that matter? Let’s get past the superficial garbage and work together on something. Maybe if we work together, we can figure out how to work the can opener.” – Elise, Astoria
“Sometimes when I close my eyes, I imagine I’m sitting somewhere fantastic and amazing.” “Where?” “I imagine I’m sitting in the sun, in a box full of boxes.” – Margot, Park Slope A photo posted by Felines of New York (@felinesofny) on
“I know full well what’s bad for me, but I still want it. Self-control is the only thing that separates us from the animals.” “But you are an animal.” “I think we’re done here.” – Tiggy, Park Slope A photo posted by Felines of New York (@felinesofny) on
