Cat dumped on street corner with his belongings

someone abandoned a cat in Brooklyn, New York. He was left on the side of the road with his belongings... confused and crying for help.

A photo of the heartbreaking display was shared on the Flatbush Area Team for Cats' (FAT Cats) Facebook page, calling for his immediate capture. Shortly after being spotted, Nostrand, as he was later named, disappeared when he was scared away by a street sweeper. But the community wasn't going to give up.
"We are a very close-knit community and people often post if they see an animal distressed or in need of assistance," Elizabeth Champ, one of the founders of FAT Cats, a Brooklyn-based group of trap, neuter and return advocates, told The Dodo.
Champ immediately went on the hunt for him, along with other many other members of the neighborhood.

"We would like to thank our neighbors, many of whom took time out of their day to look for this poor cat," FAT Cats wrote on Facebook last Wednesday, the same day his photo was posted on Facebook. "Due to today's heat and the amount of construction and noise on Nostrand Ave. today, it's our belief that he is hiding somewhere until things get quieter and cooler."
After days of searching, they finally found the poor cat who ended up in the purrfect spot to be rescued!
Nostrand turned up in the backyard of Brooklyn local and retired cat rescuer Karen Oh on Sunday morning.

Nostrand was brought to the vet and screened for a microchip - which he didn't have. He's a healthy 1-year-old- male and was a dream during his initial visit to the Prospect Park Animal Clinic.

Nostrand was happy to be rescued and couldn't stop purring. 
"Unfortunately, many male cats get dumped when they mature because there are not enough low-cost spay/neuter resources in NYC," Champ added. "People can't afford to get them fixed, so they often dump them and get another cat."
Luckily for Nostrand, he's now in the safe care of FAT Cats and is due for a neuter appointment soon. Then, he'll be on the search for his forever home, thanks to the impressive community dedicated to saving him.

Faith in humanity restored. One foul act by one human is redeemed by a whole community stepping up to rescue this little guy!
Share this story and help Nostrand find a forever home!
