New York Shitty Day Starter: F*ck Football, Give Me Pussy!

Today is one of my favorite days of the year: Super Bowl Sunday. No, I’m not preparing copious amounts of crap food and securing large quantities of beer to consume while “watching the game”. I like Super Bowl Sunday because a great many people are engaged in the aforementioned activities and I can walk the streets of my fair neighborhood in solitude. I like my “alone time”.

I also like cats. If you like cats and don’t particularly care about football why not swing by PS9 tomorrow and meet a few of north Brooklyn’s finest felines?

Today from 12:30 – 5:30 p.m. Greenpoint’s very own Empty Cages Collective will be hosting an adoption event there!

In closing, last night I had the pleasure of accompanying a good buddy of mine to meet a trio of very winsome Bronx kittens who were rescued from a kill shelter on New Year’s Eve.

Meet Taittinger…

and his brother Dom. As you can see it’s almost impossible to tell the difference between them!

They are very curious kittens…

and for this reason they, along with their sis Cristal (as seen above), were almost impossible to film!

Especially when she claimed my Kittycam as her own!

Until Taittinger took an interest in a bowl of pistachios. The Mister encouraged this behavior (hey, for once he wasn’t encouraging cats to trash our living room) and well, the rest is what it is…

Faster pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Anyone interested in adopting Dom, Tate or Cristal should contact the ladies of North Brooklyn Cats via flickr by clicking here and/or here.

TOMORROW: Cat & Kitten Adoption Event

This morning I awakened to discover that Chez Shitty has neither heat nor hot water. I was able to deduce the latter by the quantity of kitties cuddled up against me for warmth. I learned the latter via the Mister who made this discovery the hard way. Lucky him.

I mention this anecdote because cat ownership isn’t just about a lesson in humility and being a heat source: it is also about companionship. On that note, tomorrow November 7, 2009 starting at noon Empty Cages Collective will be having an cat and kitten adoption event at Williamsburg’s own PS9!


If you have been mulling over sharing your bed with a furry companion— or simply want to swing by, say hi and perhaps leave a donation— why not swing by PS9 tomorrow? They’ll be happy to see you!
