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.

This is an important message to dog owners who love their dogs: Don’t leave your dog tied up outside. Please! No matter how desperate you are for a roll of toilet paper or an avocado.
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!
It’s terrible to lose a pet, but during hurricanes it’s even worse.

The fire on Norman and Jewel left one Calico cat named Clementine missing. If you find her, don’t try to catch her. Please call: 315-415- 7336.
I also received this email from Chris:
I’m sending you a picture of Herman the German 2. He’s currently riding out Frankenstorm in my kitchen. We found him last night wandering around outside of Shayz. Need to get this guy a home….he’s pretty tame and seems to be a good guy. Might be a pet in the neighborhood, since his beak is trimmed and what not. FrankenRooster!
Email: photos (at) mottalini.com to claim or adopt him.
