Reader Stories: Readers Share Stories of First Cats

See Published Stories

Often, no cat is quite as memorable as our first cats, whether they were adopted as kittens or as older cats. Perhaps you were given a kitten as a child and you grew up together. Or, later in life you found yourself lonely, and took in a cat as a companion.

Taking in a cat for the first time is a momentous event, and we would love to see your stories and photos. Use this form to share your own. You may upload up to two photos of your first cat - perhaps one, when first adopted, and the other of he cat later in life. Use all the space available, but remember to observe the character limits.
