Many kiosks and neighborhood delis in New York house cats. These guys earn their keep by controlling the rodent population.
This beautiful cat was extremely friendly, catching my eye Wednesday night. He rolled over on the grimy floor without hesitation.
You wouldn't think there were so many animals in the city. There are animals all over the place - pets of all kinds, pigeons and varmints.
Late last fall, Mark and I were walking on a busy Brooklyn street. I looked up and saw an enormous red-tailed hawk perched on the street light. He was looking for a pigeon dinner and was in the right place!
