Dogs, parrots, parakeets, snakes, lizards and other pets regularly visit the Coney Island boardwalk with their humans, but this Saturday, May 30, is their special day. On Pet Day at Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park, your pet is invited to ride the Wonder Wheel’s stationary cars for free (only people require tickets). Dogs especially enjoy the ocean breezes and the passing scenery — it’s similar to riding in a car, except the Wheel moves slowly.

The 5th Annual Pet Costume Contest emceed by the World Famous *BOB* begins at 1pm and is a chance to win prizes as well as a fun photo op. Registration is online at wonderwheel.com or from 11:30-12:30 on the boardwalk across from Deno’s Wonder Wheel Park, next to the stage. The registration fee is two cans of cat or dog food, which is donated to Sean Casey Animal Rescue. You may also adopt a pet in Coney Island on Pet Day. Sean Casey’s adoption vehicle will be on West 12th Street for the day.

Coney Island Kittens for adoption

If you’re cat lonely this winter, Yoda will be happy to keep you and your computer company. She is one of four Coney Island kittens born indoors and hand-raised by a cat-loving family that will soon be up for adoption. The kittens, two girls and two boys, are now 11 weeks old and at Sean Casey Animal Rescue. Yoda and Phantom, the black and white kitten, are the girls. Smokey and Tiger are the boys. Now that they’re are old enough to be adopted, our friend Diana brought the foursome to Sean Casey last week. She is keeping two of the kittens and Mama will get spayed.

All of the kittens have sweet personalities and are litterbox trained. “They are playful and like to explore,” says Diana. “Yoda and Smokey are not afraid of anything. They were the first to do anything. Phantom is a little shy.”

If you’d like to inquire about the kittens, contact Sean Casey Animal Rescue, which has locations in Sunset Park and Windsor Terrace.
