Cat Who Showers with Owner Found Alive After Being Missing for 6 Weeks

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The Park Slope cat owner who put up more than 1,000 fliers to track down his missing feline friend has been reunited with his beloved pet " and shower buddy.


Smoke, a Russian blue cat with gray fur and a friendly demeanor, went missing July 27 from Greene`s backyard on Sackett Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues.

The disappearance devastated Greene. He`s had Smoke for more than 10 years and the two spend most of their waking hours side by side. Smoke even gets into the shower with Greene on occasion."


I have two cats and a dog, plus two of my neighbor`s cats spend most of their time hanging out on my front porch, if any of my pets, including my neighbor`s cats, went missing, I would be devastated.

My kitty, Tico, takes a nap with me every day, although I would never let him, and his sharp claws, anywhere near me while I`m taking a shower. Greene must have a strong bond with his furry friend, if they shower together, and he must have been at his wit`s end when the kitty ran away.

All`s well that ends well, I`m thrilled that Smoke and Greene have been reunited, may they enjoy many more showers together.
