    Default Stray Cat Washes Up On To Governors Island

    Stray Cat Washes Up On To Governors*Island « Stray Cat Washes Up On To Governors Island « CBS New York




    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – This cat’s got eight lives left.

    A calico cat somehow washed ashore Governors Island.

    According to the Governors Island Blog, the cat may have caught a ride on some flotsam after being swept into a river during the recent floods in New Jersey.

    The unnamed cat is described as being “a little seaweedy,” but otherwise healthy and friendly.

    The Governors Island Trust is hoping to return the cat to its owner.

    Unlike Mia, the Bronx Zoo Cobra, the cat has not taken to Twitter… yet.

    This poor baby, she must have been so scared. I hope she gets a good home, away from the river.

    Good luck getting him in a bath ever again.

    I'll take him-send him FedEx. He'd love it here.

    I think some owners give their cats baths but I'm sure most don't.

    Poor mister, I'm glad he got there safe. I hope he finds himself a plus, warm and loving home asap!
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    She's beautiful and looks quite smug about the whole thing as she has a right to.

    A little bit of trivia: calico cats are almost always female, because the gene in cats that determines the coat color is carried on the X chromosome. (The gene that causes the white patches that most cats have is different.)

    I have a friend that uses leather and steel mesh grinder's gloves whenever she has to flea dip her cats. Me, whenever any of my cats have needed a flea bath THAT badly, I've sent them to the vet, as I once received a mild concussion just trying to give a pill to a really strong-willed tabby.
