Okay, I was going to call it an early night— but then I received this email. It is too cool NOT to pass along ASAP. Remember a cat by the name of Socks whose flier I posted yesterday? Well, he’s safe and sound at home! His person, a lady named Genia, recounts how this wonderful happening came to pass:
Hi Miss Heather:
It was my lost cat flyer that you posted on your blog. I wanted to thank you so much because, nothing short of a miracle, it worked! The persons who found Socks, back on Feb. 13, about ten blocks away on Humboldt, saw the photo on your blog today, and called me and sent a pic of Socks, and indeed it was him. A young Polish woman, named Adriana and her family, took him in two days after he was missing. She said he was sitting at the doorstep to her building, looking cold and sad, as if he was waiting to be let in. Bless the people of Greenpoint who look after the animals in the neighborhood. I am so relieved to know that he was well taken care of for these past three weeks just when the weather was so brutal. So some happy news due to your championing of local causes, big and small.
All best, Genia Gould, Williamsburg Greenpoint News + Arts
Thanks for sharing this Genia. It made my day!
