Happy Feral Cat Day!

Thank you for covering feral cats (and domestic cats), as well as doing posts about TNR workshops.  I’m writing to see if you’d consider doing a post for National Feral Cat Day (on very short notice – it’s 10/16!) to raise awareness about feral cats and what people can do to help.

Every neighborhood in NYC has feral cats and most people innocently feed them, not knowing you can do anything else to help out these feline underdogs. But they can – through Trap-Neuter-Return! Our website with general information is here. And the workshops, including one on 10/16, are listed here.

We’re always willing to provide feral cat content at any time, National Feral Cat Day or not, so please keep us in mind!

Duly blogged!

Maspeth Photos Du Jour: Bob

This evening my buddy Carnade and I went on a quick sojourn around Newtown Creek. It was at the end of 58th Road that we met Bob. He seemed surprised by us and we were certainly surprised to encounter him: a man in a van smoking a cigar and watching the world go by. We explained to him we were taking photographs of the creek. This interested him (a retired DEP employee) considerably and he told us stories about coming to Newtown Creek in the 1950’s a child. Bob then proceeded to explain to us why he happened to be in such a desolate area on a Saturday evening: he is not allowed by his wife to smoke cigars. Period. He clarifies:

So I come down here, have my cigar and turn on Sean Hannity. That gets my anger going.

Your secret is safe with us, Bob!

Quicklink: Creek Speak

What is “Creek Speak”, you ask? Here’s how the folks at Habitat Map describe it:

Creek Speak is an oral history project that uses online interactive maps to present the stories of people and places near Newtown Creek…
