Four months ago, NYC-based photographer BriAnne Wills took a series of photos featuring women and their adopted cats. Predictably, the internet went wild, and BriAnne has now decided to make the project an ongoing series.
Here is Giuliana and her cat, YoncÃ©, in Williamsburg. Giuliana rescued YoncÃ© from outside a coffee shop in the middle of winter when she was just a kitten.
“I wanted to capture the sweet bond that exists between women and their feline friends,” BriAnne explains.
Here’s Kelly and her hairless cat Desnudo in Bed-Stuy. Desnudo means “nude” in Spanish.
So far it’s been New York women only, but I would eventually like to expand to other cities and maybe even other countries,” said BriAnne.
This is Emily and her cat Sid in their sunny Park Slope apartment.
Lanna’s cat Dots watches her play guitar in Crown Heights.
Here’s Lily and her cat Pollo. She adopted Pollo because his former owner didn’t like the shape of his head.
Ryen cuddles her cat Hazel in Kensington. Hazel was adopted from the Humane Society of New Rochelle.
Ryen is involved with a cat rescue that focuses on neutering feral cats to reduce the population of strays and adopting kittens.
