In the grand tradition of Store Sidekicks, our occasional look at pets who live in shops, we'll be covering bodega cats all week long. Know a kitty we should feature? Email us photos at email@example.com. Note: Since pets in bodegas are technically illegal, we're leaving out identifying details to keep the store owners from getting fined.
Today's cat was spotted in south Williamsburg. Writes the reader who sent her in, "I used to live above this bodega in the mid-aughts, and they had a sweet bodega cat who was always pregnant. She disappeared a few years ago, but when I went back to visit recently, they had a new cat who looked like her. I think it's probably her daughter, or maybe even granddaughter at this point."
