    Coney Island cat show!

    There are lots of stray cats in Coney Island. In fact, some people call it "Cat Island" but it is not a joke.
    They live in colonies under and around the boardwalk in different spots and in the community garden where little shelter areas have been set up for them or they mapped out their own digs. Some of the cats were born and raised outdoors at Coney in the colonies while others got misplaced from storm Sandy.
    The good news here is, they get well fed by caring residents and also veterinarian care by dedicated generous vets. They are named, captured if appear to have a stand out illness, taken to one of the vets who provides the service, then returned to the colony.
    I know some of the cats and saw some new ones this year, kittens as well, meaning under a year. Survival is good here, they seem happy and friendly, even lazy.
    You can see them off season in their spots or early AM before feeding time.
    I saw a tiger with a tipped ear so they may be doing tipping unless he got into a fight.
