Yonkers Cats – A report.

Most of you will have seen the shocking picture of the 25 cats found in Yonkers NY and been both upset and angry. Alley Cat Allies reports that a memorial to the cats will take place on 10th May. Participants will meet in the metered parking lot behind C.H. Martin Department Store (located at 2 Palisades Avenue, Yonkers, New York 10701) and walk the two blocks down to the site where the cats were found.

A memorial wreath will be laid where the cats were found and Ordained minister Dina Lenore Cirigliano will give the eulogy. Now having a minister give a eulogy for the cats is just a wonderful thing regardless of your faith and its strength – it means we are taken seriously.

Yonkers Cats

“Humans do not own this earth,” says Kristin A. Crage, Yonkers resident and organizer of the memorial.  “We share it with animals and it’s our responsibility to protect, watch over and respect them. All they want is our kindness.”

Our grief at the loss of so many wonderful cats so brutally grieves us greatly. If you are in New York, go and support the memorial. Those of you outside – share Alley Cat Allies graphic, and find a small place in your heart to send some love to those who were lost.

    It’s a good thing that the respect of any life, even cat’s life, will be memorialized. Purrs

    New York is mostly evil and they kill cats in a place they dare call a shelter 7 days a week, 365 days a year. This is so sad, but not surprising in a state that values life so little.
