Then join those flexible felines on Wednesday nights for a yoga/stretch/snuggle session, in which you’ll learn how to use active stretching to help lengthen and […]
Spring is here (right? It really is, right?), and with it the annual explosion of kittens that need to be rescued, vetted, and homed. In our community, Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition and Brooklyn Cat Cafe are on the front lines, accepting kittens and mamas, trapping cats to spay/neuter, and helping a lot of felines […]
