back
 in 1980something
i waited 
on the corner 
of
 central park west and 76 street
 for a long time
 in the cold
 camera in hand
 waiting
 to get photos
 of
 the
 macy's thanksgiving day parade 
balloons/floats

i had been there 
so long 
the cops on duty 
let me
 dash into the street
 to
 snap
 this photo

i did it so fast
 amazingly
i only clicked off one frame/one shot!

 i was pretty happy 
to
 see 
this
image
 emerge 
when
 the film

processed!

if 
you've traveled to be with family
or
you're having family and/or friends over

the day

Best Friends - Save Them All(R)

Amelia

Let’s find Amelia a home


Nearly a year ago, we shared the story of Amelia, a courageous young cat who had been living in a parking garage in Harlem for much of her life. When a local Best Friends Network Partner took her in and found her a foster family, Amelia was finally safe, warm and adored.

Today, Amelia is still hoping for her a home of her own — and a year is a very long wait for a cat who radiates only gratitude and love. So, we’re hoping you’ll help spread the word about her on social media, or even consider bringing this happy, friendly feline home to your place. 

You might recall that along with her unfailing brightness and happy-go-lucky outlook, Amelia has special needs: a neurological disorder has left her partially incontinent. But the great news is, these days Amelia is only rarely leaking outside the litter box and in small amounts. Still, she’ll always need medication, a high-fiber diet, and most importantly, a compassionate, patient person to express her bladder twice a day.

Amelia adores the fellow felines in her foster home and her caregivers believe she would thrive in a family with at least one other friendly cat. She’s been exceptionally loving and affectionate with humans too — a beautiful girl from the inside out.

If you think you might be Amelia’s special someone, please call Carina at646.456.4797 or email storrsc@gmail.com. You can also help in a huge way by spreading the word about her on social media.

Thank you so much for caring about pets like Amelia. Your kindness means everything to pets just waiting for that perfect match.
