Gone to the Cats

If you're allergic to cats you might want to avoid the Morris-Jumel Community Garden in Washington Heights. Approximately 11 feral cats with names varying in cuteness from Harley to Coco Bean are living in the garden, paying rent by keeping the rats away. It's nice out now but what do they do in the winter? They "take shelter in Styrofoam boxes that are filled with straw and hidden beneath a tarp in the back of the garden." [NY1]
