Adoption story: Celie was adopted when I was doing The Little Mermaid on Broadway. She had been left outside in a paper bag and picked up by Metro Pets! As soon as I saw her I was in love! She was only 4 months old when I adopted her. As soon as I took her home, she walked around purring on her tip toes and my sister and I named her Celie after our favorite musical, The Color Purple.

BWW Exclusive: TAILS OF BROADWAY- Meet Sierra Boggess' Broadway Kitties- Celie & Olivia!With Olivia, my sister was playing in Big Fish on Broadway at the time and in between shows was on the phone with me and suddenly said, "There's a kitten, there's a kitten, oh my god there's a kitten." And Olivia was sitting huddled on a subway grate on 57th and 7th. I said I will be right there and I grabbed my cat carrier and went down and picked her up. She was the size of my palm. I took her to my vet who treated her right away for fleas and worms and all the things she had in her only 3 weeks of living on this earth! We named her Olivia after Celie's daughter in Color Purple, because Nettie was already the name of my sister's cat. :)

Favorite thing to do with your pet(s): I love waking up with them and coming home to them at the end of my show. They are so social and so happy to see me when I come in the door, running right up to me and just needing a bunch of attention. Literally they are the greatest girls in the world.

The naughtiest thing your pet has done: They don't understand about scratching posts at all. So I had bought a brand new couch in my old apartment that within a couple months had to be replaced because they scratched it up so much. But as a true cat owner knows, it was MY fault I bought the kind of couch with the kind of material that can be damaged by cats. I learned my lesson and have a couch with material they can't get their claws into. ha!

What would your pet's catch-phrase be: "Hey sister whatcha gonna do? Goin' down my the river gonna play with you."
