Lucas is missing

As most of you have heard,
little Lucas went missing on October 31.

Zohar and his family are very distressed as are his loyal customers.


GP residents, please keep an eye out and note his has a small tuft of white on his chest.
He was wearing his collar with his name, number and address.
Anyone with information should please contact
Zohar at Pets on the Run

989 Manhattan Ave
between Huron St. and India St.
Brooklyn, NY. 11222

Everyone loved little Lucas, the Pets on the Run manager! He greeted people, followed them around the store helping to find whatever they were looking for, allowed them to pick him up for a snuggle, and was just plain cute to look at!

After reading Heather's post, http://www.newyorkshitty.com/index.php?s=lucas, seeing it on Gothamist and then talking to Eva, I realize this is not as rare as I had thought. Look for an upcoming article by Will Yakowicz in the Brooklyn Paper about the catnappings taking place in Greenpoint.

We all miss Lucas and hope he finds his way home or if he was cat napped, I beg this person to return him to his owner. Zohar cares for him dearly and misses him terribly. If you refuse to return him please at least let him know he is ok. There are countless homeless cats and kittens roaming the streets, flooding the city shelter and overwhelming rescuers all over NYC. More than 15,000 cats were euthanized by NYC Animal Care and Control just last year and many more cats and kittens are suffering and dying out on the streets. Please, consider taking in a cat that needs a home rather than keeping Lucas who already has a safe, loving home.

For all of you Lucas lovers out there that miss this little guy and have followed his story or watched him grow from orphan at the city shelter, ACC, to pet store manager at Pets on the Run, here is a little walk down memory lane. We all miss you little Lucas. We are waiting for you to return.

This is the firs day baby Lucas met his new daddy, Zohar. He was too small for the store so stayed with me for a little while. He also spent a couple of weeks with Eva Prokop.
After the devastating loss of Zohar's long time friend and store companion, the first Lucas, this was an emotional visit with his new friend.
This is Lucas the day I picked him up from Animal Care and Control.
We are in the car and on our way home! Baby Lucas
And here he is! Little Lucas!
Finally able to use those legs like a big kitty!
This was Lucas' bed.
Ever since Lucas was a baby he was very content. It was very funny because he would get tired in my house and just walk in to my room and lay down in HIS bed for a nap.
These 3 photos by Eva Prokop are absolutely adorable!
They are pics of Lucas' first bath!
Then he was finally big enough to go home!
All vaccinations, neutered and healthy!
He jumped right in and started running the store from the boss' chair!

Taking inventory and stocking shelves!

He was even kind enough to take a break when I would visit to give me some snuggles!

He was the store greeter too!
He welcomed all who came to shop!

Avon finds a home!

Little Avon finds a home!
Here he is testing his new dad's shoulders, nice and sturdy!
Avon thanked Muddy Paws and said goodbye to his brother's mama.
And stops to play with a pen...
Then its time to say goodbye to his foster mama, thanks mom!

video

She told him to behave in his new home and be nice to his new feline sibling...
This was his response. I'm pretty sure I heard a "Hmph" in there somewhere!
Now it is Gracie's turn!
Meet Grace Jones! Spayed, vaccinated, FIV/FELV negative, healthy and sugar sweet!
Ready to find a forever home!
Here is a little more about Grace:
Grace Jones magically appeared in the midst of a feral cat conoly in Greenpoint Brooklyn. She was tiny, feisty and very close to being seriously dehydrated in the summer heat. She also seemed to have been shaved or singed, leaving all her fur and whiskers short and bristly. It was very odd because the fur on her underside was soft and normal. We'll never know what happened to her, but she has grown into a beautiful and sweet little panther! We named her Grace Jones after the famously flat-topped performer from the disco days!
If you are interested in adopting Grace, contact northbkcats@gmail.com

AWE! Such love!

With Kate/Lakshmi, Sawyer, Lee/Duncan and Dharma all adopted, our foster home is taking a break. Eko and Tigra were on the couch with me last night and it was all love and snuggles! So sweet! Enjoy! I took these videos one right after another as they were falling asleep

Eko is totally passed out here, and when Tigra moves he reaches his paws out to get a better grip, without even opening his eyes

Dharma finds a home!

DHARMA WAS ADOPTED TODAY!
And get this...
Her new mom, Katherine, is a friend of Dharma's brother Duncan's mom, Anne!
Dharma and Duncan (AKA Lee) will be living within a couple of blocks of each other!
Here is Dharma settling in. She LOVES that blanket she is laying on! As soon as she layed on that blanket the paws started kneading and the purr motor started going!
So Dharma has a mom, a dad AND a big brother!!!
This handsome devil is Mack! Here he is sniffing Dharma's blanket.

Is he a cutie or what?! He is very cool and has the softest fur!
I got an update from Katherine tonight and she says Dharma is doing great!
She and mom are snuggling up on the couch!
We miss you Dharma!
Love and kisses to you and best of luck to you and your new family!

A few of my favorite things!

Dharma is a happy little girl. Here are a few of her favorite things!
Cat Hammocks!
Cat Naps!
Cat Dancers!
Cat Dancers attached to Cat Trees!
Cat Nip Cigars!
Hanging upside down!
FOOD!!!
Friends!
Playing!
video
And her absolute favorite thing, though I do not have any pictures because I just don't want to move when she does it, is SNUGGLING! I call her a slinky because she is always draped across me. Either across my chest, my neck, my arm, my leg, whatever! And if I am on the laptop (like now) she is curled up next to me flush against my leg (like now)! This litter of kittens had some serious snuggle time with mama and it has really stuck with them. All four of them have been cuddle junkies!

UPDATE!

Duncan, formerly known as Lee, has settled in to his new home! His new mom and dad sent me an update AND SOME PICS!!!
Here they are, Duncan and his beautiful little sis Maebe!

Their mom told me they are best friends now! They play fight all day and night and nap together now and then. She also told me they are all in love with Duncan (Dunks for short)!

This is my favorite pic! Look at them plotting and scheming!

Just think of the shenanigans these two are pulling!

So sweet and cute! Another happy ending!

Lee goes home and Dharma moves in!

Lee went to his new home yesterday!
This is his beautiful new sis!
I could not get a pic of Lee at the new place because he was VERY busy checking out the new place! He was just walking around sniffing his little heart out! So here are a couple of pics you have all seen before, but I had to put something up!
Here is Lee the first day I found him!
And here he is at 4 mos old. Awwwwe!
I got a text from his new mom letting me know all is fine. His sis is givin the hiss, but he is showing absolutely no concern, that is just sooo Lee.
Good luck Lee!
Luck and Love from your foster mama and foster cats Eko and Tigra!

Enter Dharma, Lee's sister...
Dharma was in a foster home with a neighbor, but now that Lee is adopted she has moved in with us. But first, Kitten Adoption Day at Muddy Paws in Williamsburg!
We were a little early today, so Dharma was hanging out in the hammock snug as a bug.
Then we were joined by Gracie, Stringer, Avon and a special guest, the Halloween Scary Black Cat with Glowing red eyes! Scary!
My pic of Gracie today was terrible, so I stole one off her foster mom's flickr page!
She is still available for adoption.
Stringer (left) and Avon (right) are both adopted! Stringer went home with his new mom (and dog) tonight and Avon goes home tomorrow night! Here is the brothers' last snuggle together!
Dharma did ok in the crate, but her favorite place to be was curled up in my sweater.
Stringer's new mom works at Muddy Paws and was introducing Stringer to her dog, Charlie!
This dog is amazing, he is just too cool!
Check out the patience in this pup!
video
Half way through the event Dharma was given a little present filled with catnip!
WEEEEEE!!!
video
No luck for Dharma at the event today:(
Someone was interested and took an application for her, but we will have to wait and see if she contacts us to follow through. We will keep our paws are crossed!
For now Dharma will live with me, Eko and Tigra.
Here is Tigra getting a look at the new foster...
Dharma is doing all the hissing and growling, believe it or not! Eko and Tigra are doing pretty well. It will take a few days, but I'm sure all will be getting along just fine soon enough.
Dharma had a few complaints about being in a crate, but she soon chilled out.
Here is her little set up, plenty of room.
Ahhh, long day!
