LAST GASP: Tipper R.I.P.

It is with a heavy heart I announce that Tipper, the big brother and den mother to the Oak Street kittens, has passed on. I learned this today from the woman whose property his little pride inhabits: her name is Jane. She said it happened a couple weeks ago and she has no idea what happened. One day she left her house and found him dead.

Goodbye little angel. You will be missed.

Spotted On Manhattan Avenue: TNR Workshop

Anyone who has read this site for any appreciable period of time knows that I have a fondness for cats. Conversely, a significant amount of my readership are animal lovers of one stripe or another. One question I am often asked about the stray cat problem in Greenpoint (and beyond) is:

How can I help?

The following is a start.

On Saturday, May 8, starting at noon Greenpoint’s own Word Books will be hosting a Trap Neuter and Return Workshop. Among the numerous topics to be covered are:

  • How to handle and trap feral cats
  • Arranging veterinary care
  • How to set up and maintain a feral cat colony
  • Raising awareness about the various resources available to you in creating and maintaining a feral cat colony

Upon completing this workshop attendees will be TNR certified and as such will have access to low cost spay and neutering services, traps and equipment. If you are concerned about feline overpopulation in your community and to do something about it I strongly advise you attend this work shop. You can register for this via email at: lois (at) nycferalcat (dot) org (be sure to indicate Brooklyn TNR Workshop in the subject line) or telephone at (212) 662 – 5761.

TNR Workshop
May 8, 2010 12:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Cost: FREE!

These are the cats of Greenpoint’s waterfront and they come courtesy of Greenpointless. Who writes:

…I was so excited that I got them to come near me (with the help of a Cuban sandwich from the Franklin Corner Store) that I just kept snapping.

You can’t blame these felines for having good taste. Methinks a “New Mexico” sandwich with extra jalapenos will help keep me warm today!

P.S.: On a related note, Muddy Paws will be hosting an adoption event featuring this lovely gal today:

Her name is Shardene. She was on death’s doorstep when Lisacat found her. But Shardene is now healthy, spayed and in need of a home. Maybe yours?

To close on a related note I simply must share this slide show featuring some of Empty Cage’s newest residents. WARNING: the following footage is incredibly cute. Enjoy!

These adorable fur kids were born on February 21st to a feral mother at Empty Cage’s facility. As you can see they’re happy, healthy and too damned precious for words!
