Should I Adopt a Black Kitten Who I Spent Two Weeks Rescuing on a Brooklyn Rooftop?

I have a cat, and I'm a self-proclaimed one-cat man, but this little cat has really grown on me.

About two weeks ago, I noticed that the sound of a cat meowing outside my Brooklyn apartment had been going on for most of the day. I have a cat, Mimosa, and I'm used to the sound of the stray cats in the parking lot below conjuring up a fine cacophony of wails at times, but this meowing sounded a little more helpless.

I went outside to my building's shared terrace, followed the sound, and realized that it was coming from the rooftop of a building on the next block over. I looked up and there, on the roof, was a tiny black kitten perched on the edge meowing. And meo

It was funny at first, in an absurd way, and as there were some birds hanging out on a fire escape below I assumed the kitten had somehow gotten up there in an attempt to catch a pigeon. But the noise returned the next day and the kitten was still up there. It dawned on me that the kitten was stuck.






the rest here

i can't put into words how amazing it is that he did this.

1. On edit...

[font color="navy" face="Verdana"]Just realized this was an article, not your personal rescue.

I hope the rescuer does adopt the cat, though!

4. Of course he should

After all that work. And when he finally gives it scritches and its little motor starts going, how could he not be head over heels in love? Great story.
