Eshete: Cobble Hill Brooklyn

Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph) writes:

I went to the waterfront to see how Eshete was doing as the hurricane approached. Not surprisingly, despite being in an evacuation zone, he was there taking care of the cats. I asked him if he needed anything, he said no, and then we chatted about cats (his are named Nubia, Mogadishu, Venice, Puerto Rico, Congo, and Damascus. He is a geography nut)

“The cats are like lions, very intelligent. Mysterious creatures, the Pharaohs buried them. Independent, but if they need you they come. Cats are beautiful intelligent comedians”

Eshete: Cobble Hill Brooklyn

This chap is a big favorite of yours truly (real men love cats) and Chris Arnade (who took the above photograph). He writes:

This is the sixth picture I have posted of Eshete, the “catman” of Columbia St. The rest are here.

I have known him now for over three years, walking by almost daily, and look forward to our chats. Despite having some serious issues, he has always been super sweet and nice to me. He is obsessed with his cats, riding his bike from upper Manhattan every day to spend afternoons with them.

I don’t know his full history, I am polite enough not to pry. I do know that he’s had a rough life. He was the only member of his family to survive the Ethiopian civil war and spent many years after as a refugee.

A geography nut, every one of his cats is named after a place: Congo, Damascus, Venice, Rico (Puerto that is), etc.
