Our Mission

To spread joy and goodness to cats and the people who love them.

Our Core Values

Debunking the Cat Lady Myth:

We are changing the negative perception of the “crazy cat lady” and proving that it is possible to be hip, stylish, and have a cat, simultaneously.

Shelters Far and Wide:

We support animal shelters, both local and nationwide, in all of their efforts from adoption to feline healthcare to spay/neuter.

Adopt Don’t Shop:

We vigorously promote “adopt, don’t shop.” Each year, millions of adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States. When you adopt instead of buying, you’re saving lives.

Inform, Educate and Entertain:

Through engaging seminars and activations, we strive to educate and inform people in entertaining and outside the box ways.
