I have spied two fliers soliciting help bringing Cosmo home: one at Dog Habitat, the other at Pets on the Run. If you have seen Cosmo or know of her whereabouts please contact her person at the above-listed telephone number. Not only does this little one require medication, but her mother is very worried about her!

Thanks.

Has Anyone Seen Kitka?

There are no deets on this flier (which hails from Driggs Avenue and Diamond Street) as to whether this fetching feline is a lady or a lad. Nonetheless, you know the drill: if you have seen Kitka or know of his (or her) whereabouts contact his/her people at the above-listed telephone numbers. Thanks!

Miss Heather

UPDATE: It has been brought to my attention (see comments) that Miss Kitka is an alias for Cat Woman. I have confirmed this. However, the best Cat Woman ever will always be Eartha Kitt. PAWS DOWN!

LAST GASP: Socks Has Been Found!

Okay, I was going to call it an early night— but then I received this email. It is too cool NOT to pass along ASAP. Remember a cat by the name of Socks whose flier I posted yesterday? Well, he’s safe and sound at home! His person, a lady named Genia, recounts how this wonderful happening came to pass:

Hi Miss Heather:

It was my lost cat flyer that you posted on your blog.  I wanted to thank you so much because, nothing short of a miracle, it worked!  The persons who found Socks, back on Feb. 13, about ten blocks away on Humboldt, saw the photo on your blog today, and called me and sent a pic of Socks, and indeed it was him.  A young Polish woman, named Adriana and her family, took him in two days after he was missing.  She said he was sitting at the doorstep to her building, looking cold and sad, as if he was waiting to be let in.  Bless the people of Greenpoint who look after the animals in the neighborhood.  I am so relieved to know that he was well taken care of for these past three weeks just when the weather was so brutal.  So some happy news due to your championing of local causes, big and small.

All best, Genia Gould, Williamsburg Greenpoint News + Arts

Thanks for sharing this Genia. It made my day!

Has Anyone Seen Socks?

I happened upon this flier yesterday on Nassau Avenue. Socks is a five year old grey and white “tuxedo cat” from Dobkin Street. If you have seen this gent or know of his whereabouts please contact his “people” at the above-listed telephone number. Thanks!

Have You Seen Tavis Smiley?

As many of you are aware I have a soft spot for furry things with whiskers. The previous goes double for furkids named after foodstuffs or celebrities. I cannot explain why; I simply find this phenomenon fascinating.

On that note, if you have seen Mr. Smiley (who it should be noted is terrified of buses and diesel engines— can’t say I blame him for that) please contact his people at the above telephone numbers. He is sorely missed.

Thanks!

This lovely cat (which was last seen at North 8 Street and Bedford Avenue) has been MIA for two weeks. If you have seen this polydactyl gal please call her person(s)* at the telephone number listed on the above flier. Thanks!

As you can see this flier (which I found today on Norman Avenue) gives no identifying information about this lovely feline whatsoever. Nonetheless if this furkid looks familiar to you— or if you know who he (or she) might belong to— please give his (her) rescuer(s) a call at the above telephone number. Thanks!

LOST

When I spied this flier (which hails from Metropolitan Avenue just north of the BQE) soliciting help to find a cat named Pippin I could not help but pass it along here. If any you have seen this handsome gent with “bright green eyes”, an “oatmeal-gray” coat and “chipped front right fang” or know of his whereabouts please contact his people at the above telephone numbers. Thanks!

From the New York Shitty Inbox: Another Catnapping?

Pets on the run

LarryTHUMBFriday night I shared with you the good news about Larry the bodega cat’s (who can be seen at left) heroic rescue and return to his rightful owner. I will not lie to you: I was ecstatic when I saw his “mom” toting him back home. Unfortunately my revelry was short-lived. You see, I awakened the next morning to find a most troubling email in my inbox. Jason writes:

Hey Heather:

I don’t know if you have heard about the store cat over at Pets on the Run (989 Manhattan btwn Huron and India)? It seems that either last week or early this week the good proprietor’s cat was stolen. When I went in there at the beginning of this week to get some cat food he was telling another customer the whole story and he was pretty broken up about the whole affair. I am wondering if there are any connections between Larry’s journey and this? The businesses are quite close to the cat vortex….

Obviously it cannot be established if the same person who took Larry (whose intentions were good, if misguided) has taken our dear Lucas (who can be seen with proud papa, Zohar, below).

ZoharandLucas

Nonetheless I find this to be a very, very worrisome trend. What part of DO NOT TAKE SOMEONE ELSE’S PET does the perpetrator of this, Manhattan Avenue’s latest catnapping, not understand?

Lucas flier

If you have seen Lucas (who reputedly disappeared on Halloween) please contact his proud papas, Zohar and Malik, at the above telephone number (you can see this flier in larger format by clicking here). They (and Pet on the Run’s patrons) are heartbroken. Thank you.

You can see more pictures of Lucas (who it should be noted has a small tuft of white fur on his chest) via his foster mom’s web page.

Miss Heather

P.S.: It would appear another cat named Larry mas gone missing.

I found this flier on Metropolitan Avenue near Leonard Street, if my memory serves me correctly.

Has Anyone Seen Wythe?

The cat, that is!

wythe

I am guessing the author of this flier meant to write “last seen Sunday, October 16th“. If you have seen Wythe* or know of his (or her) whereabouts please contact his “person” at the above telephone number. Let’s get this gorgeous guy (or gal) back home where he belongs!

Miss Heather

*Which is a WONDERFUL name for a cat, by the way.
