Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Stray Cat Strut

A sniffle there.

An imploring look.

This little one came up to me panting and crying. If I had to hazard a guess I’d say he (or she) has an upper respiratory infection.

This breaks my heart. As I have mentioned before, these cats are available for adoption. If you can, please open your heart and home to one of these lovely felines. It may very well mean the difference between life and death.

Hi Miss Heather,
I’ve been subscribing to your blog for quite a while – I think you do an excellent job, really enjoy your posts. I’m eating dinner at Lomzynianka tonight and wanted to walk by some xmas lights afterward. What’s your suggestion on a ‘greatest hits’ of holiday lights in Greenpoint? Thanks a lot and keep up the great work.
Thanks for the kind words, Jack! I assure you they are much appreciated! That said, here are my recommendations:
  1. 648 Humboldt Street
  2. 97 Russell Street
  3. 57 Franklin Street
  4. Oak Street (all of it)
  5. Huron Street has two great houses: one is between Manhattan and McGuinness, the other is between Manhattan and Franklin. Trust me, you’ll know them when you see them.
  6. Hausman Street just north of Meeker Avenue
  7. And of course, there’s the El Blablazo Community Christmas tree (which graces this post). This can be found on Manhattan Avenue between Eagle and Dupont Street.
Have a delicious dinner and enjoy the holiday extravaganza, Jack! Speaking for myself I will be taking it easy. I have a very ambitious Christmas dinner to prepare. Last night I made vegetable stock and tomatillo sauce. I am pleased to announce no one was hurt!

One of the best streets to stroll this holiday season is without argument Oak Street. At night this otherwise modest street is nothing short of being Las Vegasesque with all manner and variety of electrical Christmas cheer. Such as the above examples which come courtesy of the camera of algul siento. Great captures!

Reader Contribution Du Jour: Ball of Cat

I have long been meaning to write about the Oak Street kittens. Today I got a much-appreciated reminder via this lovely photograph by algul siento.

For those of you who are wondering, the slightly larger lass with the tipped ear is NOT the mother of these kittens. But that isn’t to suggest take her responsibilities seriously. Algul writes:

The one bigger one has been TNR’d you can tell by the eartip, but she has been so great taking care of each litter that is born in that yard, as you can see from the photo. I don’t think she would have difficulty adjusting to indoor status, given that she  is a giant lovebug.

The mother of this (and from what I have heard yet another) litter is feral and wants to no contact with human beings whatsoever. The same cannot be said about the kittens and their “stepmom”. While a bit cautious, these kittens are friendly and will gladly accept a head rub or two (I speak from personal experience when I write this). What they would like even more is a nice warm home. Maybe yours?

I have spoken to one of the folks whose front yard this little pride calls home. He told me these kittens are for adoption and that anyone interested in providing them a good home should speak to him. If any of you, dear readers, are interested in giving the gift that keeps on giving by taking one of these delightful critters home for the holidays shoot me an email at miss heather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. I will forward your inquiries to him.

Thanks!

Miss Heather

NOTE: I have been told the tabby kitten just got a home!
