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.
Some of the best posters I find are scotch taped to in bodegas. This one is a call for feral cat colony feeders in Greenpoint. If you want to pitch in email Victoria vbondart (at) hotmail.com or Matt cutler9 (at) gmail.com. Continue reading →
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.
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.
Dr. Seaman of Greenpoint Veterinary Hospital lost his cat Greta today from his Huron St (between Manhattan Ave & Franklin St) home. If you find her please do not hesitate to call (718) 406 – 2022. Please share this post.
Cats are such freeloaders. This design forward cat ran into a Greenpointer’s apartment during an Ikea furniture delivery. Coming to a party without an invitation may be the way they do it in Sweden, Kitty, but not here in Greenpoint. At least he is not homicidal. He has “some manners and hasn’t tried to kill [her] other cats,” so she thinks he is lost. He is male, neutered, less than a year and “on the skinny side.” Her apartment is located near Java St. and Franklin St.
If this is your cat, you know this cat, or you might be interested in adopting him if the owner is not found, please contact: kateaspell (AT) gmail.com.
