Man and Cat, on Sixth Avenue

Man and cat, 6th Avenue
Photo by myself on Sixth Avenue, in Midtown.

A man and a cat sat in the cold on Sixth Avenue.

I've been walking by this spot every weekday for work, and have watched the cat grow up from a tiny kitten, starting last Fall. Often, both cat and owner are fast asleep.

At first I felt very cynical about this arrangement. Over time though, I saw how (relatively) happy the cat is, how caring his owner is, and how generous New Yorkers can be. There is a cat litter, a scratching pad, cat food, and several different cat jackets.

When I took this photo and spoke with the guy, a woman stopped by to donate a breakfast muffin. There are actually two different guys who take care of the cat, switching back and forth in shifts. At night, it has been very cold, with brisk winds.

I do help people like this but I also wonder if it is the real thing or is a con.
