Felines of New York: A Glimpse Into The Lives of New York’s Feline Inhabitants

| Published on December 15, 2015

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!

Felines of New York is a blog (and new book!) that’ll give you “a glimpse into the lives of New York’s feline inhabitants.” Here are some of our favorites.

“People say I’m mature for my age. I’m just already over a lot of stuff. Like birds. I’m so over birds.” – Surf, Williamsburg

“Why would I dress up as anything for Halloween? Isn’t the whole idea to dress up as something more interesting than what you are in your everyday life? That doesn’t really leave me any options.” – Miss Prissy, Chelsea

“I try doing the New York Times crossword puzzle every morning. Just to get my brain going. After about five minutes I give up because I remember I don’t know how to read.” – Finn, Downtown Brooklyn
