Today in what the fuck is wrong with people, someone moving out of a Brooklyn building left their cat behind with two small cans of cat food. In a hallway. In 5 degree weather, amidst the polar vortex. Honestly, WHO does shit like this? Oh and it got worse for kitty before it got better.
Predictably, management evicted the cat and she's just been sitting out in the patio area, freezing, and waiting for her owners to come home.
She is the sweetest cat in the world. I have seriously never encountered such an affectionate animal. Unfortunately, however, I am not allowed to have a pet by conditions of my lease.
Unacceptable. The Craigslist author wrote that she'd already contacted the local Brooklyn animal shelters but they were all full and animal control said they'd euthanize the kitty within 72 hours if she wasn't adopted in that time.
Fortunately, a Jezebel source says that the kitty was adopted today and things are right with the world again. [*wipes forehead*] But if you still feel all that love in your heart, don't hesitate to visit or volunteer at an animal shelter like the ASPCA near you and adopt a new furry friend. There are plenty of cats and dogs who need good, warm homes.
