I wanted to ask if you can help me out.  Our cat C.C. is missing and we cant find him anywhere and I feel someone must have taken him. If you can help us out in anyway we would be grateful.
Anyone who has seen C.C. (as seen above at left) or knows of his whereabouts please contact Moe via email at animalplanetcorp (at) aol (dot) com immediately. Thanks!

From The New York Shitty Inbox, Part II: Found On Oak Street

A person we’ll call “C” writes:

We found this cat in front of our home yesterday. She’s friendly and loving, so she must belong to someone. We are in Greenpoint on Oak Street. She has hurt her back leg. She’s living in our house at the moment taking up residence on my daughter’s bed. Please share this so if her family is looking for her they can find her here.

Anyone who knows to him this lass belongs— or wants to give her a forever home should contact her good Samaritan via email at Diva54 (at) earthlink (dot) net

Thanks!

That right folks: the stalwart tuxedo lass who has kept quiet watch over World of Flowers for as long as I an recall has gone MIA! If you have seen a cat bearing a resemblance to the above kitty (but, as is noted, a bit more rotund) please call Beauty’s “people” at the above-listed telephone number or swing by. Thanks!

No indication is made as to when this lass was found but I imagine it was in the last day or so. If any of you, dear readers, know to whom this lass belongs— or care to give her a forever home— please contact her good Samaritan at the above-listed telephone number. Thanks!

Live From District Dog: Kittens & More!

When I saw the sign in front of District Dog stating there were kittens for adoption I simply HAD to see them.

And see them I did! More specifically: I parsed their naughty bits so as to ascertain their gender. By all appearances this sextet (which all hail from Sutton Street between Norman and Nassau Avenue) is entirely male. Hence why I have named this (incredibly cute) crew the “Greenpoint Sausagefest”. Without further ado here are some photographs and video footage of them. As you will soon see they are absolutely adorable— and VERY adoptable!

NOTE: while alarmed by my ringtone (Beyonce’s solo on Lady Gaga’s “Telephone”) they did not run away. This is something for potential adoptees (be they Beyonce fans, Lady Gaga fans— or both) to consider. These kittens will be up for adoption at District Dog tomorrow. After that they will be hanging their proverbial hat at Dog Habitat. Regardless, these winsome chaps need a home. Maybe yours?

Kittens For Adoption

District Dog
142 Driggs Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11222

In closing I would be remiss if I did not mention that the previous (and rather rambunctious) crew has a neighbor.

I’ll let a chap we’ll call Ed take it from here:

If you feel so inclined would you mind putting this out on the wire for us? The cat in the attached flyer had been seen wandering around Diamond Street for the last week or so before Dog Habitat was kind enough to scoop her up and take her in. The cat was wearing a collar at first, leading us to believe s/he belongs to someone that may be looking for it.

Here’s the flier.

If anyone knows who this lass (chap?) belongs to or cares to give her (him?) a forever home please contact the fine folks at Dog Habitat at the above-listed telephone number.

Thanks!

At Large In Greenpoint: Spiff

I just received this the above photograph of Spiff the cats from her very upset owner, Stephanie. She writes:

Heather,

Our 12 year old cat just escaped from our car on Greenpoint and Leonard Street between Manhattan Avenue and Franklin Street (My boyfriend ran out of gas, chaos ensued, cat jumped out the car window.) I am hoping she is still in that area, but she might try to get back to our place on Franklin between Green and Huron. Would you mind posting her picture and a plea for people to contact us if they spot her? Her name is Spiff. She has grey stripes, a white chin and green eyes. She has a zitty thing on her chin right now from the food bowl. She is very sweet.

If anyone has seen Spiff please contact Stephanie via email at: stephanie (dot) lawkins (at) gmail (dot) com

Thanks!

Has Anyone Seen Javi?

June 22, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11211, Crazy Cat Lady, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn 

Earlier today a reader commented that north Brooklyn seems to have a lot of lost cats of late. If my inbox is any indication, this would definitely appear to be case. Tania, who brought the handsome chap to the the left to my attention writes:

Hi Miss Heather,

hope you are doing well! My wonderful neighbor’s cat went missing on Sunday night on the corner of North 5th and Bedford Ave, I hate to bug you but was hoping if you had a chance you could post this on your site, it would be greatly appreciated. She is very very upset and is going crazy looking for Javier.

Included in Tania’s email was a link to an advertisement on Craigslist enlisting help for Javi’s safe return. It reads as follows:

LOST: All Black male cat, about 4 years old. Responds to Javier or Javi (“ha-vee”). Short hair but with a big fluffy tail and exceptionally large head. Has a red collar with a red heart rabies tag from Pennsylvania animal hospital. Last seen in the building 132 North 5th St (at Bedford) Sunday AM, June 20. 4th floor. He’s very trusting and loving so may have wandered out of the house and into someone else’s care for the time being, as it was very hot!! May have left if the door was accidentally left open by a guest or have escaped out the window onto the neighboring balcony. Either way, he is an indoor cat (does have his claws though he never uses them) and he never wanders far on the few occasions he got out before – is scared of being outside alone. He has large, beautiful yellow eyes.

If you have seen Javi (who it should be noted will reply rather vocally to his name) or know of his whereabouts please contact his person, Caitlin, via email at: caitlingutekunst (at) gmail (dot) com

Thanks!
