DOMESTICATED CAT FOUND IN CENTRAL PARK

Catherine found this grey cat “right inside the 110th street entrance of Central Park right off Central Park West. It’s obviously domesticated and had a collar on, but was malnourished so I brought it home.”

      There’s a cat that hangs out on Manhattan Ave between 103-104th and belongs to someone in that building. Any chance it’s that one?

        In reply to hm: I think I know the cat you’re talking about – Obi, the big orange guy? There’s also a black and white cat that he hangs out with, but it’s not the cat in this picture.

      bring to a vet and see if the cat has been chipped with info.

      You’re the best, Catherine. ❤?

      Bless you!@ Hope the cat is chipped. But why chip an apartment cat? I never leave my windows open!

      • EricaC says:

        I don’t either, but I chipped my cat in case of the unexpected – a fire, an unanticipated entry by a staff person for a leak or something and the staff person doesn’t know about ththe ca, etc.

        My neighbor had an unchipped (and no collar) apartment cat and it was scared by a burst radiator and got out the door, down 6 flights of stairs, and out the service entrance and into a courtyard in less than a minute. We couldn’t even run down the stairs that quick and keep up with it. She was very lucky that so many people in the vicinity helped her look for and find the cat before it was lost permanently. I can’t imagine having an animal anywhere without it being chipped. Kudos to you Catherine. 🙂

      Thank you Catherine!!! There’s a special place in heaven* for humans who help animals.

      Thanks for the feedback. I took it to a vet– no chip and healthy. No it’s leukemia or feline HIV. A really nice cat. It needs a home if I cannot find its owner, since I already have 2 cats. I’ll put fliers up in the CPW area, but I doubt the cat had been fed in at least a week, since it’s severely under-weight.

      Best,
      Catherine

        The flyers will do it! Thank you for helping the cat and owner.

        I lost a cat once. She had jumped out the window (high-up) and a neighbor saw her trying to get back into the building. That neighbor took her in (also, like you, had a cat). Fed it…to make a long story short. We were very happy when reunited.

        You do see how neighbors help each other.

        I live very close to here and can check to see if sign is there and if so – can post whatever it says back here soon.

      There were signs on CPW and Amsterdam in the 90’s looking for a cat…hmmm

    11. Catherine says:

      Thank you all so much for your help!! I just put up fliers between 110 and 103 on CPW and Manhattan Ave. really hoping I find this cutie’s owner!!

      • dannyboy says:

        Best EVER!

        I admire Catherine’s whole attitude. I know I speak out on this blog, but this is what I am speaking out about. We will all benefit from helping each other.

        Yes to neighborhood.
