TODAY: Cat & Kitten Adoption Event at Muddy Paws

Today from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. some of my favorite north Brooklyn cat ladies will be having an adoption event at Williamspoint’s very own Muddy Paws. I have it on very good intelligence the lass you see to the left, Cristal, and her fellow bottle babies Dom and Taittinger will be among the cats and kittens wishing to make the acquaintance of someone (perhaps you?) who will give them a loving, lasting home. Lest you are wondering why this trio is named after champagne, I will tell you: they were rescued from a kill shelter on New Year’s Eve. Why not swing by and say “Hi”? Who knows, you might make a new feline friend— or two?

In closing, I will leave you with this footage of Cristal, Dom and Taittinger with their foster mom: a pup named “Spoto”. Be sure to listen for Dom’s ferocious growl at the very end. Too cute!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Five Men & a Little Lady

Jim (who sent me the image to the left) writes:

We have a stray cat who has meandered her way into our(5 dudes in a loft) hearts…… She appeared over the summer looking for our inside cat-acknowledging us only with a vicious hiss and running away. A little love and affection later, she now lets us pick her up, purrs on our laps, makes us go “Aaaaawwwww”……

We want to bring her in, but need to get her fixed, get her shots, etc. Wondering if you have a place in the GP area where we could bring her to get that done at a reasonable price? The ASPCA van isn’t coming around this area too soon. Much appreciated and i love the blog-your the best!

If there’s one thing yours truly has a soft spot for it is men who like cats— and who couldn’t help but love this adorable lass? Here are a few thoughts off the top of my head:

  1. I recall the Toby Project occasionally provides affordable spay and neuter services in Brooklyn. I have checked their calendar and the next time they will be remotely near Greenpoint  is January 27. On this day they will be in Bedford Stuyvesant.
  2. Speaking for myself, my husband and I go to Northside Veterinary Clinic. I’ll be upfront: people tend to either really like Drs. Leiman and Eisner or can’t stand them. We have had positive experiences with them. I would also like to add that I recently accompanied a friend of mine who had rescued a kitten there for a “check up”. She was very happy and Dr. Eisner, knowing that “Peanut” was a rescue, gave her a 20% discount off the cost of all the tests, etc. I am certain it was still not very cheap, but the cost split five ways might be do-able for youse guys.

On that note, I am going to solicit thoughts/advice from my readers. If you have any advice for Jim please leave them in the comments. Thanks!

Congratulations Jim! Gasolina is a cutie!

New York Shitty Day Starter: Oak Street Kittens Update

The sick ones were nowhere to be found, but here are their siblings.




Squinty’s sibling comes forth. Reluctantly.


People are leaving cans of food out for these kittens. What they need is TLC and a home. Anyone interested in adopting these kittens should contact me via email at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. I’ll hook you up with the “owner” of these kittens.

Miss Heather

P.S.: Tipper too, who closely supervised my photo-shoot of her step-siblings. Someone adopt her. Please.

A swollen eye here.


A sniffle there.


An imploring look.


This little one came up to me panting and crying. If I had to hazard a guess I’d say he (or she) has an upper respiratory infection.

This breaks my heart. As I have mentioned before, these cats are available for adoption. If you can, please open your heart and home to one of these lovely felines. It may very well mean the difference between life and death.

LAST GASP: Meet The Coney Island Post-Impressionists

September 9, 2009 ·
Filed under: Brooklyn, Coney Island, Crazy Cat Lady 

Today’s New York Shitty “Day Ender” has come to pass. But after stumbling upon the following Coney Island cuties via my friend’s Amusing The Zillion’s flickr page I simply had to post them. STAT.


I have named this lovely lass “Madame Matisse” due to the lovely orange line down her nose.


Methinks I’ll keep the Post-Impressionism ball rolling with this cutie. Just like her sister and brothers she was born in the Luna Park Houses, and given her intense(ly cute) and pensive demeanor I name her Suzanne. As in Suzanne Valadon. Ms. Valadon clearly loved tri-colors. What’s not to love? It’s like getting three cats in one!


Gauguin doesn’t hail from Tahiti. She comes from Coney Island Brooklyn, USA!


I cannot ascertain if this one is female or male (I’m guessing the latter). In any case he (or she) doesn’t like the exposure, if you will. For this reason I have decided to name him (or her) Cezanne:

The world doesn’t understand me and I don’t understand the world, that’s why I’ve withdrawn from it.


Due to the numerous spots on this tabby’s belly I have named him (or her) Seurat. For obvious reasons.

Anyone interested in learning more about these Coney Island cuties should contact their stepmother at:

hello (at) triciavita (dot) com

New York Shitty Day Ender: Cat Lover’s Delight


Methinks I saw this fetching feline on North 3 Street. I forget. In any case it gives me an excuse to post the following videos of a couple of (not-so-bad) Bushwick boys I have written about recently: Avon and Stringsdale.

Anyone interested in giving these furkids a home should email their very human (co)stepmother at: shawnandkenny (at) earthlink (dot) net

P.S.: More incredibly cute pix and videos of dese goodfellas can be seen by checking out Lisacat’s Flickr page.

Adoptable Cutie Cavalcade!

I imagine if you’re reading this you’re not one of the fortunate many who are headed out of town for vacation this upcoming week— or you’re taking a vacation from your vacation. Either way I cannot think of a better way to while away this evening than to watch some very cute (and adoptable) kittens from none other than north Brooklyn!


Meet The Wire Kittens. First up, the ladies in the cast:







Here’s some footage of them in action.

Rhonda was shy around me when I paid her a visit— but she was not so coy with Tigger! As you will see in the following video.

Lisacat writes:

Rhonda, Kima and Zenobia were named after characters from the HBO series “The Wire” – see insets. I hope my next litter of bottle-babies are boys because there just aren’t that many prominent women on the show! These tricolor sisters were rescued as part of a TNR project in downtown Brooklyn and will be up for adoption soon.

Sure enough, this came to pass. Meet D’Angelo Barksdale

and Russell “Stringer” Bell.

These two boys hail from Bushwick. They were found at two days of age helpless and covered in flies. They have since been nursed back to health (hence the fat tummies— they just hit the bottle. Of milk, that is.)

And last— but hardly least— Greenpoint’s very own quintet of cute: “The Bountys”.


Although I have written about these fetching felines before I had never had the pleasure of making their acquaintance until recently. I was not disappointed.

Bounty and Hunter

By far the real show stoppers in this crew are Hunter (as seen at left) and Bounty. Do not let Bounty’s diminutive stature fool you: dynamite comes in small packages.

Anyone interested in giving any of the wonderful kittens the life-long vacation of a loving home can contact their foster mom, Shawn at: shawnandkenny (at) earthlink (dot) net

Other details:

  1. All these kittens have been vaccinated, treated for parasites and test negative for F.I.V. and feline leukemia.
  2. Upon adoption they will be spayed or neutered before going to their new forever homes.
  3. Lastly, these kittens will be adopted out in pairs unless there is already another cat in the home. That way they will be less lonely (and likely to get into trouble) when you’re not home!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Coney Island Babies!

Hi Heather

I’m trying to find a home for 7 kittens from Coney a la The Gowanus Lounge’s “Adoptable Cutie of the Week.”

How could I possibly refuse to lend a hand? These bona fide Coney Island babies are the cutest damned things I have seen in a VERY long time! What’s more, can you blame them for going to Coney? They were probably hoping to catch a mermaid or two(‘s heart)!

If any of these fetching felines has caught yours— hook, line and tummy spots— you should contact Tricia at amusingthezillion (at) gmail (dot) com.
