A very nice and fellow cat) lady, Stephanie, writes:

I Heather! If you don’t mind, could you please share this? I found him in Sunnyside and hope someone is looking for him. I know you have significant reach. I’ll be posting fliers in the neighborhood tonight. THANK YOU!

I asked Stephanie for more information about this handsome fellow— and she delivered!

First seen Friday night on 40th Street between Queens Blvd and 43rd Avenue (“The Skillman side” of Queens Blvd). Was very friendly and hungry and ran right up to me for petting. Was hiding under cars, did not seem to be a local and it’s in front of my building, I’ve never seen him and I have mad street cat radar. The next morning, I went out to see if he was there and he was a little distressed under a car, skittish and crying a little. Again he came running straight up to me. I gave him some food and went back in for a carrier – when I returned he was nowhere to be found. I went out a few times in the day and couldn’t find him. As soon as it was dark I went outside to call for him and saw him on the sidewalk back arched in a near confrontation with a dog (thankfully on a leash). He ran into some bushes and I went over. I called him and he came right out and started talking to me and rubbing on me. I picked him up and put him in a carrier, he had no complaints – that is rare. he is not ear tipped and way to friendly for me to believe he lives on the street. He does not even know how to find a safe place to call home. There are ear tipped cats that live behind my building, but he did not seem to know what to do or where to go. I think he comes from a home and either got out/lost or was dumped by some bottom feeder. Black and white – young adult – talker – purrer – chirper – seems sweet, but is distressed in my bathroom with my jerk cat hissing at him from under the door. He’s eating and using the litter box and sitting in the window watching the birds. I will post fliers tonight and hope someone will claim him. It would be great if he had someone to hang out with that does not have cats to assess his personality, my cats do not accept adults, so he’s confined to my bathroom. I’m going to check in with my super to see if he’s ever seen him around and if he could foster him. He loves petting, but has swatted (no scratch/blood) at me twice. I hope this is just a nervous thing. It’s so hard to assess in a small space.

If anyone reading this knows to whom this fella belongs, please contact Stephanie via email at bigcitylittlekitty(at)yahoo(dot)com  —and spread the word! Thanks.

The Word On The Street, Part II: VOTE

How does one voice his/her dissatisfaction with a selection of candidates? Well, as yours truly learned today in Sunnyside there’s stating you’d prefer to vote for Adolf Hitler for starters. Note the annotation “AKA Big Pig” and devil horns/donkey ears. Nice…

Queens Photo Du Jour: An Offer You Can’t Refuse

Some of the people reading this are aware that the Mister’s birthday is coming— and soon. I mention this because he has been agonizing about how to celebrate it. FOR THE LAST TWO MONTHS. I am not exaggerating when I write that his “plans” have changed on a near daily basis. As of last night he stated he wanted to go a jazz club. When asked what I thought about this I told him that while not too crazy about his choice, it was his birthday and he can do what he wants.

What tomorrow will bring, who knows? All I’m saying is if he doesn’t make up his mind soon I will make it for him. And as of today “Passions” made the list.* I wonder if they offer these lubes in flights (like brandy or port)— or if this purely an a la carte affair?

*Just kidding. I think.
