The Beloved Bodega Cats of New York City
Bodega cats are the hard working kitty staples of corner shops in NYC who not only catch and kill existing rodents, but also deter others from entering their establishments! Laughing squid shared this article!

Bodega Cats is a wonderful organization that documents the beloved bodega cats of New York City. Each of these felines maintains a loyal presence among the wrapped items, cigarettes, liquor bottles, and refrigerators of neighborhood convenience stores all around the five boroughs.

Brooklyn musician and engineer Rob Hitt started this project by posting a few photos of neighborhood cats. It quickly grew into something that can help out others within the community.

“We never anticipated the positive reaction and support that posting a few photos of our neighborhood cats would evolve eventually evolve into. We started with just a few photos of neighborhood cats that eventually accumulated to over 500,000 followers across Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Even though the accounts started as fun for our friends, we realized we could eventually use the influence towards positive causes in our community.”
