Ladies, do these photos make you want to adopt a cat? I suppose in a modern world, with gay marriage et cetera, I should also mention whether men could be encouraged to adopt cats when looking at these photos but I’d rather stick to the conventional for the time being. All the photos are by Petra Romano.

Ladies, do these photos make you want to adopt a cat?

The guy above is John Fugelsang and his kitty, Bix….(I don’t know who the rest are – can you help?)

As you might expect, the idea behind these photos is to encourage people to adopt unwanted pets and to raise adoption awareness. They are photos from the Tails of NYC RescueMen calendar. The men are New Yorkers as I understand it. I have featured cats but the other photos are of dogs.

The organisers are: Felicia Greenfield and Jen Halpern. All the men featured are animal lovers. Halpern said:

“They truly inspire us to want to continue to make a difference for shelter animals.”

This is a project of Pillows for Paws a not-for-profit founded by Halpern.

“Not only are they nice to look at, but they’re awesome people,”

If this sort of stuff rocks your boat, you can order the calendar here.

  1. Thinking about it, if these pictures were of women with cats it wouldn’t make me want to adopt a cat, however pictures of available cats to adopt with maybe a few words of history attached would probably do it if I were looking for a cat, or it may even put the idea in my head.

    • I agree with you Alan, it’s the cats (more than their owners) who should be the main focus for promoting adoption.

      Every year I buy the 365 cat calendars, simply because I enjoy the photos and reading the background stories of the cats featured. All of them are pets and the majority are rescues. Either rescued directly by the owner themselves or adopted through shelters.

  2. Maybe my friends are right that I’m too picky, because none of those guys do it for me (lol).

    I can see that featuring attractive men might help boost sales of the calendar and raise more funds for the shelter. Will it encourage more people to adopt? I’m not sure.

          • So it looks like we’re not more likely to adopt a cat based on a calendar. I wonder if men would be more likely to adopt a cat once they see it’s okay, or even cool, to be a guy with a cat?

  3. Oh, good grief! You just had to ask…I have plenty of cats but am always interested ofcourse.
    But, in reality, I am more interested in adopting any one of these hunky guys, especially the one in the top pic.
    Just as I felt about Chris Scordo who adopted King, I would pet him and groom him and feed him and cuddle him and play with him all day.
