Over the Weekend: Animal Kind Unkind to Lost Kitty. Do You Know Him?

December 1st, 2008 · 3 Comments

link-asterisk.jpgCheck out this little guy. A kind soul rescued him from traffic on Seventh Avenue in the Slope over the weekend. He took him to the Animal Kind vet clinic on Seventh, which we understand is not an animal shelter, but their kind advice was to call 311, which would have no doubt directed this creature to a kill shelter. It amazes us that they don’t have a list of local shelters like Sean Casey, BARC, the Empty Cages Collective and others to give people or the human courtesy to call one. But the more important question is: Do you recognize him? Is he yours? We will put you in touch with the kind person who rescued him and DID NOT call 311 per the advice of an uncaring person at “Animal Kind.”Do You Know Me? They Were Unkind at Slope’s Animal Kind

    Yes, they know. And dr gibson of AK posted a comment which was sorta wishy washy, but, live and learn.

    Where on 7th ave did you find him? Ive been seeing a similar cat like him running around in traffic between 14th and 13th before, I think he lives in that area and the owner just lets him roam, so whatever maybe he is better off where he is now.

    @Frank: I saw him dodging traffic at 7th ave and 15th st, and not in a street-smart kind of way. He’s with me now.

    I put up posters all over the neighborhood (at pet stores, etc), but haven’t heard back from anyone.
