SUNDAY: Cat & Kitten Adoption Event At Muddy Paws

Adoptions Again and Forever

It’s been a long time since I have given these events a mention. Today I got a swift reminder in the way of the following little guy dwelling in my photo pool! While not quite ready for adoption yet, he will be at Muddy Paws on Sunday. To give you a taste of what you are in for, gentle readers, I present for your viewing pleasure the following video of “Stripey”. WARNING/CAVEAT: the following footage is incredibly, mind-numbingly cute!

Adoptable Cuties: Kitten Cavalcade At Dog Habitat!

Earlier this week I was contacted by Jay Lombard of Dog Habitat. He told me they had a few new residents of the feline persuasion. Needless to say I had to make the acquaintance of these guys (and gals) STAT. Yesterday this came to pass. Without further ado here they are!

First up, a trio of kittens found in Queens:

And how can we forget Mangus? The rather friendly (and furry) chap whose image graces the beginning of this post!

You can (and should) see more photos of these adoptable cuties and a few of their canine pals at Dog Habitat’s web site. Otherwise anyone interested in meeting these little ones and giving them the loving home they deserve should contact the folks at Dog Habitat at: rescue (at) doghabitat (dot) org or (347) 203 – 3934.


In closing, I feel compelled to write that tomorrow, May 22nd, Glasslands Gallery will be hosting an benefit for Dog Habitat. You can get more details (and purchase tickets) by clicking here.

Laid Off Nursing Home Cat Needs A Home!

Stuff like this (which I spotted on Bedford Avenue this afternoon) absolutely breaks my heart. If any of you, dear readers, are in search of a loving companion of the feline persuasion— or know someone who is— please consider this lovely lady. “Mommy” deserves better than this. Thanks!

UPDATE, March 18, 2011: Mommy has a new home upstate! Read the comments for the scoop!

Adoptable Cutie Cavalcade!

Last week was quite a lively one for yours truly— and not exactly in a good way. For this reason I decided to get a little kitten therapy at North Brooklyn Cats’s adoption event at Muddy Paws. Now only did I get my “cute fix”, but I also shot footage of some kittens who would very much like a home. Maybe yours? Without further ado here they are!

The Celestial Kittens

This trio was found in a plastic bag near the Cloisters and turned over to Animal Care and Control. My friend (and cat mom extraordinaire), Lisa, sprung them loose and is nursing them back to health. Although it will be some time before Sky, Heaven and Angel will be old enough for adoption, I cannot resist sharing the above footage. WARNING/CAVEAT: be prepared for heart-wrenching cuteness!

Bubbles & Friends

I did not get the names of all these little ones but above chap is named “Bubbles”. He appears to be the most subdued of the lot— as you will soon see. Enjoy!

North Brooklyn Cats has a number of other cats and kittens eagerly awaiting homes. You can see a few of them by checking out their page on Adopt-a-Pet’s web site. You can view more pictures of the Celestial kittens (including more live footage) by clicking here. In closing, anyone interested in giving any of these fetching felines a home can contact (and “like”) North Brooklyn Cats via their Facebook page which can be found here.

Adoptable Cuties: Meet Clementine & Smoky

Today being cold and dreary as it is yours truly decided to swing by Dog Habitat and meet a couple of their feline residents in search of a new home. Without further ado, here they are!

First up, I present to you the lovely Miss Clementine. This 1-2 year old spayed female is amazingly friendly and loves to purr. Follows is Jay telling us her story.

Next up, I present this distinguished gentleman. Smoky is is an owner surrender (his “person” recently moved into a senior citizens’ facility). He has a very affectionate personality— as you will see!

Lastly, the folks at Dog Habitat would your help finding this handsome little guy’s owner. “Buddy”, as he is called, was recently found at Sternberg Park. Here’s Jay to tell us his story.

Anyone who is interested in providing a loving home to either of these lovely (and loving) furkids and/or can help Buddy find his way back home should contact Dog Habitat via telephone at  (718) 395-2298 or email at: rescue (at) doghabitat (dot) org.

P.S.: When you swing by be sure to say “Hi” to Lion another adoptable cutie. He is quite a handful!

Three Greenpoint Cats Need Your Help!

Max, approx 10 years old, neutered male, FIV positive.

Daisy, approx 10 years old, spayed female.

Bethany, approx 7 years old, spayed female.

A number of folks have brought the plight of this threesome to my attention. Long story made (very) short, these cats recently had the misfortune of finding themselves at Animal Care and Control, a kill shelter, because their person (a Dupont Street resident) died. You can read more about their story on the Facebook page my friend Lisa was thoughtful enough to create. Anyone interested in providing a home for Max, Daisy and Bethany should contact Neighborhood Cats via email at lois (at) nycferalcat (dot) com.

Thanks— please help spread the word!

Lily lived at the Espinal Deli at 312 Bedford Av.

Doug (who took the above photograph) writes:

saw this today at 312 Bedford Av.

there was a bodega there called Espinal Deli, sitting between Videology and Dumont Burger and they closed this week. They had the rent doubled I heard. Who knows, but the close was sudden to me as a regular customer.

Anyone interested in providing the lovely Miss Lily a home should contact missthangny at the above-listed telephone number or email address. Thanks!
