Recently I met with Kate Hammer, a reporter from the New York Times. She was working on an article about bodega cats so I showed her around the neighborhood and introduced her to some of my favorite feline friends. Well, today it went to print and one of Greenpoint’s most beloved kitty cats is prominently featured. Check it out!

  2. i love it! i agree with the guy’s quote at the end – if it is safe to have cats in houses and apartments, it is fine for the store. there is far more open food in someone’s house than in the bodega. and – i’ve never experienced a mouse problem in my home, thanks to my two cats, Freja and Lola. They also do waterbugs.

  4. Cats are great critters around food retail places, including restaurants. They take care of a lot of the nasty stuff and I have always found them rather clean, at least cleaner than many humans. It’s kind of like that rule the health people have about food workers wearing those silly latex gloves. With those things on, they can’t feel when they are dirty and wash. If they just used their bare hands, they could. So they just wear the dirty gloves for hours. So much for clean food. That’s what happens when a city pays people to sit around and come up with dumb ideas or, worse, when decisions are made by a committee.

  6. Apparently, Robert M. Corrigan, a rodentologist, is off his bean.

    Cats are a necessity for any food-oriented business in this city. The only surprise, for me, is learning that bodega cats are illegal.

    Madness! Insanity! Legalize the pussies!
