FOUND IN WILLIAMSPOINT: Torbie

FOUND

Although this flier (which hails from Graham Avenue and Richardson Street) is a week old I am going to post it anyway. If this lovely lady is yours— or you wish to give her a forever home— please contact her rescuer at the above telephone number.

Thanks!

Miss Heather

P.S.: On a related note, tomorrow Muddy Paws will be hosting an adoption event tomorrow, October 11, starting at 2:00 p.m.

Williamsburg Photo Du Jour: Frost Street Gets In The Halloween Spirit!

Erma (the woman behind this fabulous door which I posted back in August) writes:

first i wanna thank you for posting our door i wanted to know as we change the door if you were gonna post it. this way i can email you when we change it rather than leaving a comment on the website. alot of people come to the house to look at the door cause they saw it on your website.

I finally had the time to swing by today. It’s really neat!

I realize the glare makes these images somewhat difficult to discern. Go to 180 Frost Street and see it for yourself. You will not be disappointed!

New York Shitty Day Starter: Stray Cat Strut

ECC

The purpose of this post is two fold: shameless self-promotion (albeit for a cause— somewhat) and giving (long overdue) props to wonderful lady who— if I remember correctly— coined the term “stray cat strut” (for posts of a feline nature). I’ll start with the latter first:

Her name is Jennifer. She operates a site called Last Night’s Dinner. She resides in Rhode Island (or as I prefer to see it: she is a Brooklyn ex-pat operative in Rhode Island). Jennifer is a cat lover par excellence. She is also a damned good chef. And last month she received some very well deserved (and long overdue) press:

PROVO

You can read this tome in its entirety by clicking here. Otherwise you can view the many culinary creations of Jennifer (and the occasional glimpse of her pussies, including June Bug who hails from Bushwick, Brooklyn U.S.A.) by clicking here. WAY TO GO, JEN! I think the Mister wants to marry you for your personality pork burgers.

Otherwise, I am proud to announce that I will be having an exhibition of my photography at Greenpoint’s very own TBD this December! The general premise/theme will be “(People) In My Neighborhood”. The details have yet to finessed (because I have to finesse them) but there will be an opening and all the works contained therein will be for sale.

I intend to allocate a portion of the proceeds to causes I am particularly fond of. Empty Cages Collective (whose rusty tabby graces this post) will be one of them. The Greenpoint Reformed Church’s Food Pantry/Soup Kitchen will be another. That’s the short list. Although I am a self-professed cat lady, I have no intention of leaving my canine compatriots out in the cold!

More details to follow.

Goodbye, North Henry Eatery. Hello, ass kicking kids!

In (somewhat) related news it would appear 159 Greenpoint Avenue is well on its way to becoming a Latin American restaurant.

Borough Of Lost Pets

grattancat

Just as was the case yesterday I went out for another walk to enjoy the lovely fall weather. I followed my usual m.o., e.g.; taking subway somewhere (in today’s case the Jefferson Street stop of the L) and walking home. This may not be everyone’s idea of a good time but I enjoy it. Today was no exception save one disturbing trend: the numerous lost pet fliers I found along the way. Here they are— along with a few furkids who were lucky enough to be found by some very kind humans.

FLUSHING AVENUE

FOUNDKITTEN

Notes/observations: I found a number of these fliers around the Morgan Avenue stop of the L so it is safe to presume he was probably found in this area.

GRATTAN STREET

meatball

Notes/observations: Judging from the condition of the flier I’d say this one has been around for a while. I found it around the corner from where Meatball calls home: Roberta’s Pizzeria. If you have seen Meatball— the coolest named dog EVER— please call his people at the above telephone number.

BOGART STREET

founddog

Notes/observations: This is disturbing as hell.

HERBERT STREET

littleman

Notes/observations: This one hails from a little closer to home: Herbert at Monitor Street. If you have seen Little Man (which happens to a nickname for one of yours truly’s felines) you know what to do.

CALYER STREET

bella

Notes/observations: Although the flier was found at Calyer and Eckford Street, Bella was last seen at Manhattan Avenue and India Street. Judging the wording of this flier I have to wonder if Bella was lost or stolen. Stealing pets for resale (or reward money) is a cottage industry in Brooklyn. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: KEEP AN EYE ONE YOUR PETS. DO NOT LEAVE THEM UNATTENDED. PEOPLE CAN AND WILL TAKE THEM!!!

In closing I will leave you with this lost dog alert from my friends at District Dog.

RED WENT MISSING ON FRIDAY NIGHT. HE IS A 1 YR OLD RED LABRADOR, HE IS NEUTERED AND HAS A BLACK SPOT ON HIS TONGUE.
