Mr. Coffee’s Cup of Tea

Mr. Coffee’s Cup of Tea

In early February, Virginia Stevenson brought home a ten-month-old cat named Coffee from the ASPCA Adoption Center in Manhattan, and the two experienced an immediate connection. Coffee, since renamed Mr. Coffee, also became fast friends with Virginia’s resident rescue cat and has wasted no time making himself right at home.

“I cannot imagine my home without him,” Virginia says. “He is the perfect companion and playmate for my other cat, Martha, who is a one-eyed rescue I got from Bideawee in New York City. Mr. Coffee is sweet, playful and affectionate, and acts as if he has been with us forever.”

In fact, Virginia tells us it took “about one minute” for Mr. Coffee and Martha to become friends, and that “they have been thick as thieves since the first day.”

When he isn’t playing with Martha, Mr. Coffee has already picked out his favorite places in Virginia’s home for taking catnaps and exploring.

“One of his favorite sleeping places is the bathroom sink,” Virginia says. “He also loves the climbing tree, the window sill, the back of my chair, my computer and the bathtub.”

We’re thrilled to hear that Mr. Coffee found a home where he feels so comfortable.

“He is a treasure,” Virginia says.  “I thank you all for bringing us together.”

Nothing brightens my day more than to read about a beautiful, sweet animal's adoption by a wonderful person, Ms. Stevenson. My heart dies a little with each horror story of animal abuse and so it is vital to remind myself of all the loving, caring, beautiful people who adopt and give such wonderful homes to their cats & dogs. Thank you, Ms. Stevenson, for adopting, caring for and loving Mr. Coffee who is such a gorgeous cat. The sweet photo of you and Mr. Coffee - so comfortable and adoring of each other - says it all! Happiness all around.


He is certainly a handsome cat and your both look so happy.! It is so wonderful you found each other and that Martha approves. Have a happy life together!


Certainly a handsome boy, it is so nice he has a friend God Bless

Nothing warms my heart more than success stories, especially pertaining to animals. I advocate for kitties & so many times we get attached, try as we might not to, then lose them! I have five rescues myself & would probably have more if I could foster my husband out somewhere. *wink*

Thank you for taking in Mr. Coffee. He is so cute. We rescued our cat (7 lbs). She plays with our other rescued Min-Pin mix whom we just rescued about 7 months ago....thank you to all rescue parents!!!

I've never met a 'Mr Coffee' I didn't like. How precious!


I wish more people would open up their hearts and homes to this kind of love! Thank you Virginia

This is wonderful to hear. Being thick as thieves they must provide much amusement.
