All photography by Adam Myatt

Adam Myatt a.k.a. The Cat Man of West Oakland is not your normal crazy cat lady. After taking photos of West Oakland's feral cat population for about a year, he found a litter of kittens that would change his life...

The kittens would lead him to Ann Dunn, the founder of non-profit organization Cat Town, the meeting led Adam, Ann, and everyone in the Cat Town team, to open the Cat Town Cafe & Adoption Center... the first cat cafe, and open colony adoption center in the USA! Cat Town has had an amazing success in it's efforts to empty cages, lower the euthanasia rate in Oakland (42% in 2011 and 7% in 2015), and find deserving cats loving homes. Now Myatt is turning his focus to advocating TNR in Oakland and beyond!
