Cat adoption organization Whiskers-a-GoGo, cat rescuers North Brooklyn Cats & Bushwick Street Cats and pet shop Bushwick Bark have organized the feline fête.
I should really get a pet. Surely the thought has crossed your mind. Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone to cuddle up and be lazy with? The dating scene in New York isn’t getting you anywhere. You’re tired of watching Stranger Things alone on the couch, curled up with a pint of Van Leeuwen. Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone soft and furry to watch with you? Someone who returns your calls (meows)? Someone who doesn’t cancel dinner plans (the food dish is expected to be filled by 6pm sharp, or else)? Well, it’s time to give in to your urges and do some good. Consider adopting a kitty, many of whom have had rough starts in life and are all-too-ready to have a place to call home. Every Sunday from 2pm-6pm holistic pet store Muddy Paws (447 Graham Avenue) hosts a cat (and kitten!) adoption event.
Does this adorably special furr-ball belong to you? S/he was found on Saturday, January 9th at approximately 1pm when he ran into the back door of Master Piece Smoke Shop avoiding the cold weather. Neighboring store owners also stated that the cat tried to run into their establishment.
This gorgeous cat is described as 12 out of 10 on the affection scale and is particularly vocal.
To all the purrrfect cat lovers out there: 11/21 is your power day. Brooklyn Craft Co. is holding a festival of magical cat crafts for you. On November 21st, take part in a glorious pop-up cat cafe (!), snuggle adorable cats and kitten while making something pretty awesome for yourself. Continue reading →
Have you ever met my dog D? She is amazing and we found her at the Ridgewood Reservoir – an amazing place I highly recommend you visit.
This past weekend as we walked through wildflowers and watched swallows dive into the pond, we heard a sweet kitty cat cry. Mr. Gray, as we are calling him, was hunting for lizards (there are lizard there) but he wasn’t doing a great job. When we called back to him, he ran to us and we were immediately friends. This cat is amazing. And he is gorgeous: light gray with subtle stripes and golden eyes. A real stunner.
He was clearly not feral, but he was very hungry and on the skinny side. We couldn’t walk away from this magical animal and while I waited for Jon to get the cat carrier, Mr. Gray sat in my lap, purring and gently playing with me. Some animals are gifts – Mr. Gray is a gift. (Jon’s theory about all pets at the reservoir is that they were abducted by aliens, had their brains scrambled and return as perfect pets.) Mr. Gray is perfect.
We brought the handsome boy to the vet and he was extremely calm in the car and friendly to the doctor. With no tags or microchip, it turned out that he is a young male neutered cat who has a recently healed surgery scar on his shoulder. He is feline leukemia and FIV negative and was given a flea bath. We can’t seem to find Mr. Gray’s owners and are seeking a new wonderful home for this incredible animal.
If this is your cat, please email me – editor (at) green pointers [dot] com. If you would like to adopt Mr. Gray – I am bringing him home from the vet tonight and you can come and see him anytime.
Please spread the word so we can help find Mr. Gray a home.
As we know all too well from the past month, New York weather BE CRAZY. One day it feels like Spring in January and the next, we wake up only to trek through a few feet of toxic slush to a delayed train. If only there was a better way to get the weather report than sifting through an hour-by-hour forecast in a state of half sleep, trying to determine what shoes to put on…
Welcome to the world of Poncho, a personalized weather service that emails/texts you each morning with an update specifically tailored to your daily habits. It’s just like the device in Her, except instead of Scarlet Johansson whispering sweet nothings into your ear, it’s an adorable cat in a poncho telling you the weather. Continue reading →
Sam the Cat was taken in after living on the streets for more than a year. It was right before last week’s snowstorm when we found her and she was cold and very hungry, but she was really starving for affection. She was likely abandoned and isn’t into the street cat life. She loves cuddles, soft blankets and warmth. LOOK AT THAT FACE!
We brought her to the vet and she was healthy, FELV/FIV negative and likely already spayed. Her age is unknown – she isn’t a kitten and not geriatric. She has been treated for fleas and though she tested negative for parasites, we are treating her – just in case.
She is good with dogs and other cats and loves people.
If you can find room in your home and heart for this sweet creature please consider it. Or if you know someone who needs a loving and mellow companion, please share this. She will make a great pet.
No adoption fee. All vet bills have been paid.
Interested? Email me greenpointers at gmail.com or call or text 718-791-7607.
Thanks in advance for any help with getting Sam The Cat into her “FUREVER HOME.”
Yes, it’s a day of thanks and eating like there is no tomorrow. Let’s not forget that Thanksgiving is also a day of indulgent wonderful glorious napping. This is the window cat at Academy Records. He can teach us a thing or two about napping, especially the hand over eye move. Sweet turkey dreams.
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.
