Great news – Colt was found!
Great news – Colt was found!
Greenpoint resident, Eliot Walden, has kindly taken in an adorable stray cat that he found last night (8/27) at Brouwerij Lane on Greenpoint Ave and Franklin.
From Eliot: There was this cute little black stray cat wandering around the trash and playing underneath the cars on Greenpoint Ave. The cat has no collar or any form of identification. I ended up catching it in order to get it off the streets and give it some proper food/water, so it is comfortably at my apartment now.
Please contact Elliot is this cat belongs to you (or if you might be interested in adopting him)! If the owner isn’t found, he’ll be looking for a home.
Phone: (646) 396-3837.
The owner writes:
I lost my cat, Fez, last night (8/13/13) around 65 Ainslie St (betw. Union and Keap in 11211.) He fell off a 4th floor balcony, and I am not sure whether he is hurt or not.
He is just over a year old, not microchipped, petite with gray and white tuxedo markings and green eyes.
Under normal circumstances, he is very friendly to strangers.
UPDATE: Oscar has been found!
Please help a fellow Greenpointer find her missing cat Oscar.
Male gray striped tabby cat named Oscar – last seen on June 4th near Sutton between Nassau and Driggs.
If you live in this area, take a moment to look in your basement, garage, anywhere a scared kitty could be hiding. Another missing kitty we posted about spent three weeks in a neighbors basement and was found alive.
If you find or see Oscar, call 917-974-8596. Reward for his safe return.
Please share this on facebook and twitter.

UPDATE (5/31) Kitty was found in a neighbor’s basement after 3 weeks without food and water, a love, skinnier, but amazingly well.

Update: Greta has been found!
Don’t you want to see the prints?
After shopping at Met Food on Driggs I spotted this adorable dog tied up outside. What an easy puppy to steal, I thought. But since I have a conscience, I walked across the street to the liquor store for a bottle of white, talked with the owner for at least 3 minutes about how Hennessy has a monopoly on Cognac and when I came out the pooch was still alone. I had enough time to walk back and take a bunch of photos and still no owner was in sight.
People – bad people – steal dogs and sell them or do horrible things to them. Dogs “are typically stolen for money, bait, or lab testing,” according to CBS who reported a dog napping while the owner was present. And don’t think it’s just little dogs that are stolen, even big tough looking dogs, like pitbulls and shepherds, are targets.
Everyday in Greenpoint, I see too many sweet and well-cared for dogs left alone at the risk of being dognapped. As New Yorkers we are multi-taskers with little time, but if running errand means leaving your dog tied up, please don’t take the risk.
I am sure the dog pictured has an owner who loves him and I hate to make him an example, but hopefully it will make others think twice, not to mention limit the neighborhood’s heartbrokenness every time we see a poster with a missing pet on it.
Keep your puppies safe, Greenpoint!
[UPDATE: SHELDON HAS BEEN FOUND!]
Sheldon is lost. He was last seen on Java St and has a heart condition. If you find him or have any information about him please contact Steve at 917-656-7411.
With all these lost pets is everyone getting their pets ID collars and microchips? Even if they are indoor cats, they can get out! And make sure to snap a great detailed photo, in case they do run away, you can plaster the neighborhood in posters!
