Jellicle Cats Come To The Bodega Ball

The Bodega Cat Series is in its third week of heavy competition at the Gothamist. Incredibly cute cats from impossibly well-stocked bodegas throughout New York City are vying to be the Cutest of Them All. A chance for one lucky feline to stand out proudly among his peers and shout,”Made it, Ma! Top of the World!”

In the coming weeks we’ll take a look at all of our catestants, and judging by cuteness level, personality, and ability to sleep on vegetables, we’ll narrow it down to a reasonable number of finalists. A voting system will then be installed where you can help choose New York City’s Next Top Bodega Cat! He or she will be rewarded with pats on the head, belly rubs, a 10th life, and a free pass from the Department of Health.

While my famously unknown cat, Zoltan, may not have the ability to sleep on vegetables, he has mastered the ability to sleep on my piano…even while I’m playing. Zoltan knows what he like and likes what he knows; he doesn’t need head pats, belly rubs, a 10th life, nor a DOH free pass; above all, he doesn’t need no stinkin’ badge! And that goes for Old Deuteronomy, too.
