Hi Miss Heather,

I thought you and your readers might like to know that there is going to be a cat and kitten adoption event this weekend at the NYC Pet on Bedford Avenue. It’s on Saturday August 14th from 11 to 5. The kitties were all found during recent Trap-Neuter-Return projects in Williamsburg and Bushwick. We have many wonderful cats looking for homes, including five polydactly kittens aka “Hemingway Cats”, as well as a lovely tabby gal named Brigette. I’ve attached the event flyer and a picture of Brigette (taken by Brooke Jacobs – here’s a link to an album of more adoptable kitties, we have lots!) Please help us spread the word and support local TNR!

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.
