stray young black cat on 81 street
« on: October 13, 2021, 06:33:19 PM »
Two mornings in a row a young black cat darted across 37th Avenue at 81 Street.  I held my breath praying he would not get hit.
Has anyone else seem him/her?  I went to Rite Aid and purchased a can of food but could not find him.
The two mornings that I have seen him it has been around 9 am

I saw this kitten(about 3 months) last Tuesday on the corner of 81 St and 37th.  I inquired at the Spanish restaurant and was told there are 5 or 6 kittens in the back of their restaurant which faces a courtyard of a rental or co op building.  If anyone knows of a trapper, please contact me.

I tried to communicate with the superintendent of the building where I saw this kitten enter,  but his English is almost non existent and so is my Spanish. he did say there are 10-15 cats and that a tenant is feeding them but I doubt he/she is getting them spayed or neutered.  It is the rental building on the west side of 81 street just off of 37th Avenue.  I am going to try and get a Trap Neuter and Release person to come and take these animals to be neutered and then returned and then hopefully build an outside shelter for them.  If anyone knows anyone or wants to help please contact me
thank you

i did go to the back of the building and the cats appear to be cared for as there are shelters so I am not pursuing it further
The super appeared and was not happy about my presence
