Hey Miss Heather. Sorry for grabbing your contact from the internet but I wanted to tell you of a developing story. There’s a factory/warehouse in Greenpoint that has 10-20 cats and kittens that they’re removing to the ACC (Animal Care & Control), which means certain death for these poor lil’ guys. The problem began when they welded a metal grate over the entrance/exit the cats use and when neighbors noticed little kitten faces peeking from behind the grate, assumed it was two kittens who had accidentally been welded in a crawlspace. According to the factory the grate was put up to keep new cats from coming in – these cats have all lived their entire lives inside being fed by staff.

Their problem is unmanageable for them and they feel that they don’t really have any other options. Unfortunately they were given info on how to humanely trap and rescue these cats but the person who was going to do this never followed up on it and the situation got worse. A group of people from the cat rescue community has stepped in to try to help w/ this situation but the factory has traps all over the warehouse and we can’t keep up w/ the amount of cats they’re trapping. They unfortunately began sending to the ACC yesterday.

I thought this story might be of interest to the local Greenpoint community and wondered if you were willing to blog about it. Please let me know.

One other thing – they owners don’t necessarily seem like bad guys. Like they actually seem to regret the ACC direction but feel they don’t really have another choice and need to do what has to be done. Just wanted to mention that so you know they’re not like “lets murder kittens!!!

Duly posted— and understood! If anyone knows of a home wherein these feral furry ones can be relocated please contact Matt via email cutler9 (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks!
