Greenpoint Lost & Found

Filed under: 11222, Crazy Cat Lady 

As I was knocking about the Garden Spot today I found two fliers regarding lost and found pets. I am going to pass them along here— along with a few notes.

I stumbled upon this flier for a found pup (Bichon Frise? Maltese?) on Noble between Franklin and Lorimer Street. No details are given other than he (or she) was found on Lorimer Street. If this is your dog or you know to whom he (she?) belongs please contact the 94th Precinct at the above-listed telephone number.

I found this flier at 87 Dobbin Street. Once again no details are given. However, if you have happened upon a kitten resembling the one depicted in the above photograph around the intersection of Dobbin Street and Norman Avenue, chances are pretty good it is this guy (or girl). I suppose it goes without saying— but I am going to say it anyway: if you have seen the above kitty or know of his/her whereabouts please call his (or her) people at the above telephone number. Thanks!

This item (which I presume hails from either Dobbin or Banker Street) was the second thing I gazed upon over my morning coffee today. To see the first one click here. Both come courtesy of algul siento who has made this otherwise dreary day much more provocative for yours truly.

This dapper dog can be found on Dobbin Street and struck me as the perfect way to kick off an announcement for a very nifty upcoming event at Unleash Brooklyn: Looking for Calvin and Hobbes by Nevin Martell. Here’s the 411 as gleaned from Unleash Brooklyn’s Facebook announcement:

In honor of October being Adopt-A-Dog Month, Saturday, October 24 Unleash: Brooklyn and Word Books will be hosting an evening featuring Nevin Martell, author of the newly released book, Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip… Come celebrate the friendship between mankind and their furry friends while learning about the elusive creator of one of the most beloved comic strips of all time. Looking for Calvin and Hobbes is an affectionate and revealing book about uncovering the story behind this most uncommon trio – a man, a boy and his tiger.
