There are millions of cats in the naked city…


My name is Vicky and I’ve had cats nearly my whole life. I grew up in NJ and had indoor/outdoor cats, some of them strays, others kittens of a stray. Later, I had indoor/outdoor cats, then moved to NYC and moved my indoor/outdoor kitty permanently indoors. I’ve seen the pros and cons of both. Staying indoors is safest for a cat, but I do think you have to make sure there’s plenty to keep them occupied indoors, especially in a small space.

I frequently do catsitting for friends in the city and I’ve learned the ins and outs of various’ urban cats’ lives. There are many “tails” to tell. I started Gotham Kitty because I love cats and want to share my knowledge about them. I love to hear from readers about their cats too.
