The Word On The Street, Part I: All Apologies


As spotted this evening on the premises of the Franklin Corner Store. A couple observations:

  1. This is one very polite— or at least apologetic— thief.
  2. Where did he/she get the post-it note and sharpie marker? Were these purloined as well or does he/she keep ’em handy for just these occasions? Anyone?

Griffin (the above rat terrier whose person assures me is quite the drama queen) like not the Franklin Corner Store’s “no dogs” policy the least bit!

New York Shitty Day Starter: Stray Cat Strut

A stare.


A scratch.


A stretch.


A sniff.


And a bath.

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?

Has Anyone Seen Tiger?

I am sad to announce that Tiger, Oreo’s replacement at the Franklin Corner Store, has gone MIA.



If you have seen this handsome little guy or know of his whereabouts please contact the Franklin Corner Store. This is no weather for a cat (especially one as cute as this one) to be out on the street.
