Spay and Neuter your dogs and cats. Please.
While that nasty, screeching, large, fluffy black and white cat hasn't been prowling around as often behind the buildings on my block, there are loads of stray cats roaming around Sunset Park. Some of these come from homes that don't know what to do about kittens. Well, here's something you can do: Bring them to the free or low-cost Spay/Neuter clinic sponsored by the ASPCA. If you can afford it, please pay and/or make a donation. I think the price is $25 per pet. Not bad. If you are on public assistance, you can have the services for free. All you need is a few bucks to buy the cone that keeps your pet from licking its stitches. They advise you to arrive around 7 AM to line-up for the intake process. They take the first 25 pets every day.
Check out the details on their website. It includes instructions for feeding the night before and transporting your pet to/from the mobile clinic.
Pet Owners! Be there on Wednesday, 8/20 --> 5th Avenue, Between 42nd Street & 43rd Street, Sunset Park.
Also, if anyone wants a kitten, email me at bestviewinbrooklyn (at) yahoo (dot) com with a contact number. I'll pass it along to someone who just had a litter.
