“Meow Meow! I am the one-and-only Cookie, a beautiful 1 1/2 year-old black ‘n white tuxedo cat, always dressed and ready to go. I am the cat’s meow. I have silky fur, pretty green eyes, and a loud purr, plus I love to cuddle. I grew up on West 9th Street in Gravesend where I made lots of friends and everyone watched over me. They made sure I was spayed, vaccinated, and protected from the cold and stormy weather (including Sandy) and then when I had a little accident and sprained my foot, they made sure I had the best medical care. Luckily there were no broken bones. Everyone loves me so much and knows how friendly I am. They decided I could not go back outside. And thanks to the incredibly supportive staff at the office of the veterinarian, Dr. Linda Jacobson, they are letting me stay there until I find a good home. I am neat, cheerful and have a great, warm personality – I will brighten your day! I am in excellent health. Sometimes I am shy on the first introduction, but once I know you, I will only want to be with you. I am the one for you. If you are interested in meeting me, please call Nancy Romeu at 917-306-9431 or contact the office of Dr. Linda Jacobson at 718-376-8957. Mention Muffin’s at the Home Reporter newspaper.

PAWS 2 READ: For my birthday, Cat D surprised me with three great books. The first book I read was “The Dalai Lama’s Cat,” a novel by David Michie. The trials and tribulations, narrated by the rescued cat, are about a stray kitten, taken from its mom, dropped on the ground, causing damage to its hind legs. The muddy kitty, wrapped in a newspaper, was rescued from the slums ofNew Delhi and given a new life in the Dalai Lama’s beautiful sanctuary overlooking the snow-cappedHimalayas. His Holiness’s compassion saved this unwanted kitten. She was known as HHC, the Snow Lion, Rinpoche, and more names. This book is a keeper.
