New York Shitty Day Ender: VOTE!

This rather substantial advertisement as spied by yours truly on the Southside is as good a reason as any to remind any/all registered Democrats in north Brooklyn and beyond to vote at tomorrow’s primary! Those of you who are not in the know can find your voting district by clicking here.

NOTE: This post is in no way intended to be an endorsement of Erik Dilan. Quite to the contrary: if I had the ability I’d most assuredly vote against him (READ: for Nydia Velazquez). Sadly some rather diabolical redistricting (at the behest of a certain individual) saw fit to remove me and a fair amount of north Brooklyn from her district. So it goes.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Adopt A Buddy (Or Two!)

A lass named Rebecca writes:

I am fostering for “Adopt-A-Buddy” (the rescue is Brooklyn-based; I am a Greenpoint expatriate now living in Forest Hills, Queens). These 2 brothers were turned in to ACC at 4-weeks-old because the owner’s cat had a litter and she couldn’t keep all of the kittens.  Pulled from ACC at the last minute.

They’ve been weaned off of kitten formula.  Beautiful temperaments: loving and playful.  Dog-friendly.  I trim their nails (they do not put up a fight) and they use a scratching post.  No furniture destruction. The boys now are 11 weeks.  The one who looks more “innocent” is the mischief maker.  He is the genius who climbed my shower curtain and promptly fell into the toilet.

The one who looks like Rocky Balboa is the more placid of the two.  Both ask for human love… no “cattitudes!”They both were VERY confused and then annoyed by my attempts to make them sit still for photos. I wanted to name them either “Darth Vader and Darth Maul” OR “Howard Hughes and Kevin”….  The head of Adopt-A-Buddy didn’t think that was a great idea, so they are listed as “Sunny and Shawn” on PetFinder.com.

At this point, the rescue wants them either to be adopted together, or to go to a home w/ another cat.  A potential adopter who wants de-clawing will be turned down, as will someone who can’t make a (possible) 20-year commitment to care for them.

Anyone wishing to give these two fellows the loving forever home they deserve should contact Rebecca via email at Rebecca11222 (at) hotmail (dot) com
