When Toffee the cat moved to New York City she had dreams of landing a job at a clothing label, eventually launching her own line of eco-friendly and fashion forward collars, and living the good life. But unfortunately, New York real estate prices have been a huge reality check for the kitty.
“She wanted to live close to the garment district, so she could be right where the action is,” said Toffee’s rental agent, Tony Ryu. But because Toffee was unable to land her dream job right away — she currently busses tables at a wine bar in Chelsea — she’s only been able to afford a very small studio way uptown in Harlem.
Yet even now, living so far from the action, the cat wouldn’t change a thing.
“Oh she’s not exactly living her dream,” said former roommate June November, “but she’s determined to make it. On the plus side, her apartment has a rat problem, which is an unexpected perk.”
