Be My Boyfriend (Someday): Evan, The 10-Year-Old Cat Lover Who Donates His Allowance To Save Kitties

Julie Gerstein / January 7, 2013

Dear Evan,

I realize that at 10, you’re a bit too young to actually be my boyfriend. However, I’d just like to give you a shout out, as a fellow cat lover and feline fanatic. In 2009, when you were just seven years old, you donated your entire year’s worth of allowance to help save animals at City Kitties in Philadelphia, and have done so every year since. I understand you’ve now got three cats, and are well on your way to being a bonafide crazy cat person, and I, for one, couldn’t be more thrilled.

Plus, I hear your parents have actually matched your yearly donation every time, which means you’ve effectively raised more than $200 for cats in need. Sure, you’re only 10 now, but both Jessica and I would like to set up a date with you when you’re officially 18.

Nice work!

In admiration,

Julie
