Coney Island Cat

Snow Coney’s mom ‘Okaasan’ (mother in Japanese) needs a home! This sweet Coney Island cat and her kittens are now up for adoption via Empty Cages Collective. You can visit them at Bushwick Bark, a pet supply store at 175 Knickerbocker Avenue (located off the Jefferson L train) in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Last month, former house cat Okaasan and her new babies were rescued in Coney Island along with ‘Snow Coney,’ her son from a previous litter. As reported previously, Snow Coney was adopted before Christmas. Here’s hoping Mom and kitties find a forever home before New Year’s.

According to her page on Petfinder

Okaasan was originally rescued as a stray with babies in Coney Island, Brooklyn… and is now ready for a new home. She enjoys being in the safety of inside now and just wants a warm home to call her own. She is mostly white with adorable little gray patches on her head.

Okaasan is vaccinated, spayed, tested negative for FIV and FELV. The only thing missing in her life is you!

Get in touch if you’re willing to adopt beautiful Okaasan or stop by and say hello: adopt@emptycagescollective.org or 1.800.880.2684.

Empty Cages Collective is an all-volunteer organization. You can support the work they do for New York City’s animals by donating or volunteering to become a foster home and following their Facebook page.

Snow Coney the Coney Island Cat

On Sunday, ATZ visited Snow Coney, the Coney Island cat who was rescued last month and is recuperating nicely at Manhattan Cat Specialists after a blood transfusion that saved his life. Though he is still taking antibiotics, our comeback cat is looking good thanks to the expert care he has received from Dr. Plotnick and the staff at MCS.

“I am pretty sure we can pick him up in the next day or two, but it was truly a struggle to get him to survive,” says PJ McKosky of Empty Cages Collective, who rushed the cat to MCS the day after we brought him to a vet in Brooklyn who works with Empty Cages. “He was so close to dying.”

Along with Carolyn McCrory, who works in the amusement area, and Dianna Carlin of Lola Star Boutique, we rescued this very sick cat and named him “Snow Coney” in honor of his white coat and his birthplace. MCS veterinary technicians Liliana Rene and Gina Manes say the Coney Island cat has a great personality and they would adopt him if they did not already have cats.

If you would like to adopt Snow Coney or any of the other rescue cats at Empty Cages Collective, please visit their Facebook page to have a look and fill out an application. Manhattan Cat Specialists also has cats up for adoption and a lively Facebook page with news of cats in New York and around the world.

Sadly, Snow Coney’s sibling died, but his mother–a former house cat—and her new kittens were also rescued in Coney Island and are now in an Empty Cages Collective foster home. “They were also sick –anemic also and the babies had bacterial infections– but nothing like Snow Coney,” said McKosky. “Of course, the babies and mom will all need to receive vaccines, deworming, spay/neuter when they are bigger, testing for FIV/FELV on top of all the care they are getting now.”

UPDATE December 15, 2013:

Lucky, lucky Snow Coney will have a forever home at Christmas! The Coney Island cat who was rescued exactly one month ago and nearly died, left the hospital yesterday and is already going to his forever home today. If you are able to, please thank Empty Cages Collective for all that they do–they really do take on the hard cases such as animals who require a lot of medical care– and support new rescues by making a donation or volunteering your time.
