In September, ATZ wrote about a gray cat who was the last tenant of Thor Equities-owned Henderson Building after the humans had been evicted. We soon realized the cat was part of a colony of similar looking gray cats living in the former music hall.
There’s a contingent of cat lovers who put out food and water for them and the rest of Coney Island’s feral, stray and abandoned cat population. Coney Island photographer Bruce Handy took this picture on Saturday. Now that the building has been demolished, the Henderson Music Hall cats are homeless. Where will they find shelter on this snowy day in Coney Island?
For info on helping feral cats, visit the websites of the New York City Feral Cat Initiative and the Toby Project. Last year, the Toby Project was one of the few animal rescue groups performing spay/neuters of feral cats in Coney Island.
