These days it seems like every Park Slope bodega that I go into is also home to a cat.
Sometimes they actually greet you before walking in – lying outside the store in a nearby plant or stack of newspapers. Usually you catch ‘em inside when least expected; hiding under shelves or curled up by a window. These felines are laid back and tend to leave you alone, save for a meow here or there. After all, they’re there to chase the mice away.
