Add one determined housecat to the growing menagrie of visiting fauna on Governors Island. Over the past several years, the Island has hosted a few turtles, a day-tripping Dutch cow, a wayward Jersey deer, and we’re about to get some chickens. We think this kitty was swept out to the river from Jersey during the big storms over the weekend, hitched a ride on some floatsam, and eventually landed on the rocks that encircle the Island. Her coat’s a little seaweedy, but she’s otherwise healthy and very friendly. Any information that leads her back to her family is appreciated. Until then, she’s getting all the Fancy Feast her brave little heart desires.
PS: Yes,we’ve called a vet. No, she doesn’t have her own @twitter handle. . . yet.
