If you were a big Paws Planet fan, you probably recall Brooklyn-based fashion and beauty photographer BriAnne Wills. In a series of images, the New York photographer documents ladies and their cute feline pets. Not only does she capture their beautiful and strong relationship, but she also tells everyone the story of how they met and how their lives changed after living together. She even created a project to encourage the adoption of cats and to get rid of the stereotype of crazy cat ladies. Additionally, she hopes to portray cat-owning ladies in a positive manner through these images.

#2 GG DeFiebre And Gizmo

Gizmo is the cat who is friendlier. He is highly intelligent and driven by food. Gizmo will figure up a way to open the bag and consume everything inside, so I have to store their snacks in the refrigerator. He is a lap cat as well. If he can, Gizmo will stay on my lap for almost the whole day. He enjoys occupying other people’s laps, but only if a pillow is present. Cosmo is considerably more laid-back and doesn’t enjoy sitting on laps, but he would go above and above for animals. If you put your hand over his head, he will “dolphin dive” to grab it for a pet. He has the loudest purr and is constantly seeking affection. He has had a few health scares including a urinary blockage, and once he accidentally ate ibuprofen (which is incredibly dangerous!) but was a giant sweetheart even during those stressful vet visits.

I love having the boys with me as my cat coworkers because I work from home. Without them, I can only image how alone the work-from-home lifestyle would be. I don’t know what I would do without my gigantic 12-year-old gingermuffins, even though that frequently entails having someone attempt to walk on my keyboard and sleep on my desk.

We enjoy having a routine when I arrive home. I’ll lay on the couch, and he’ll jump on top of me and snuggle into my chest while purring maniacally. We’ll continue in that manner until he’s had enough, at which point I may go about my day. I can’t think of a better way to unwind after a long day at work, and if we don’t do “the thing,” he follows me around until I do.

We had hamsters, bunnies, and dogs when I was a kid in South Florida. My very first cat is named Calvin. Although I attended orientation seminars to learn how to care for kittens, the best teachers have been hands-on experience and guidance from other rescuers. I enjoy fostering cats and using my position as an adoptions counselor to assist them in finding their ultimate homes. Along with being qualified in TNR (trap/neuter/return), I have a strong commitment to spaying and neutering neighborhood cats. ⁠ ⁠

Calvin served as the impetus and inspiration for my advocacy efforts, and I am grateful for him. I encourage people to support their local rescue groups by donating, fostering, adopting, or volunteering.”

#10 Emelia And Olive In Sunset Park

Olive is a therapeutic cat that I got. My dad was sick, and I knew having a pet would bring a lot of love and comfort to that stressful time in my life. When she was a kitten, Olive suffered maltreatment and was terrified of everyone—except me. It didn’t take us long to get along.

I asked my dad for help because I couldn’t decide on a name for my then-shy kitten, and he came up with a number of original suggestions. I immediately recognized the name “Olive” as fitting her adorable attitude when he suggested it. Even if she is still fickle, she is a sweetheart today and is constantly inquisitive and kind. My dad passed away a year later, and it brings me such comfort to know she carries a little bit of his memory with her name.”
