Obama the Cat, Not the President

cat rockaway

I’ve been reading Rockawayist column “Dogs of Rockaway” and I love it – great idea! But then I got thinkin… what about the cats? I know so many cool cats in Rockaway and feel they should be known to all. So here goes… Many of you have seen me post pictures of Obama on Instagram but I’ve never formally introduced him. Obama the cat is named after Obama the President because he is also black and white. I can’t take creds for the witty name – my former neighbor Naureen came up with it. Obama started […]

Lets Go Mets!

Here’s a recap of the best instagram’s this week. If you want the day to day follow me here! I had to drop the kidnapper van off at Nick’s in Arverne, I road my bike back from the station and spotted this bus with LGM on it! I’ve been waiting for this moment, Fivey, Lil Left and Cookie all sleeping next to each other!! Sunday’s Hike It Baby Queens trip to Fort Tilden, so much exploring… And this pic of Lil Left, too cute not to be featured in GOTW!

Here’s a recap of the best instagram’s this week. If you want the day to day follow me here! Lil Lefty is doing really well, he’s a total mushball! As many of you know I took a TNR class, I trapped my first two furballs. This little guy was to young to return so I’m fostering him for a while. What a cutie huh?! I took a brisk spring walk at Jamaica Bay with my friend Susie’s new group Hike It Baby Queens. More to come on this new club! After a Home […]

who doesn’t love lasagna?


Garfield is notorious for loving lasagna. I can’t believe I haven’t posted on this yet – cats and pasta…! image source The Huffington Post has an article on Garfield and why he LOVES lasagna… “Like Garfield, Davis is a fan of lasagne. “Yeah, I love lasagne. I thought it would be funny to have a cat who likes lasagne but as it turns out, I hear from people all the time that their cats love lasagna.” I agree with creator Jim Davis, the comic strips are the best… image source image source The internet also […]

Meet The Patron Saints of (Bushwick) Cats

Born in Landen, Belgium in 626, St. Gertrude is the official patron saint of cats. In Bushwick, we’ve got the modern equivalent in Chris Glazier and Jeannie Purvis, co-founders of Bushwick Street Cats, – “a not-for-profit group of dedicated cat loving volunteers who help control the population of feral cats through trap-neuter-return (TNR), improving the quality of life for the community (both humans and cats).” The Patron Saints of (Bushwick) Cats I initially met Chris Glazier at a Forms show over a decade ago. When we found Fivey as a feral kitten on the street in […]

Fiver escapes, fights with fluffy

I’m not sure how he got out. We were loading in some gear from the van, and had the cellar door open, but the sliding door to the storage area was closed off. I think. Fivey could have escaped from the second or third floor, but he would have had to climb down from the roof.  I’ve been letting him explore upstairs. He knows there’s another world up there, and lately he’s been meowing at the top of the basement stairs to go up. I thought the chance of him escaping out […]

Fiver Gets Breaded

Cat Breading

A little late on this trend (ok, years late) but I just couldn’t help myself. If only the bed was made this video would be perfection! I love my cat and of course I love bread. I can see this becoming a fixation.

Fivey’s Shelf

The plan

Now that we’re moved into the basement I’ve been looking for ways to improve the space. I thought new moldings for the windows would be an improvement. I told Will and Matt I would like the windows to resemble an old Italian summer kitchen combined with a mystical hobbit house aesthetic. I made clear, the most important element was the window ledge. It needed to be big enough so Fivey can hang out and watch the squirrels. This was my initial concept drawing. And here’s the final product! I was thrilled with the […]

Meet… Pickle

Pickle the Cat

Welp, I’ve done it again. From the same location I found Fiver, I met Pickle. I’m almost positive that Fiver and Pickle are related – that’s why I had to take her in. I met Pickle three days before we were moving to Rockaway, so things are more complicated this go around. Until we’re settled in, Uncle Al is watching Pickle at the studio in Ridgewood. He’s doing a great job socializing Pickle. In a month or so, we’ll start the Fiver/Pickle introduction process. I know in my heart that Fiver and […]
