Bodega Cats Are in Charge

Some of the most adorable rodent terminators on the planet live in Bodega shops in Brooklyn. Since it’s not safe to have pesticides around food, and rats will never completely leave New York, Bodega shops have the cutest solution: cats who serve as 24/7 rodent control.




I want to shop in Brooklyn to support cute rodent terminators.  I’ve heard they can even lead you to the Fancy Feast aisle.

    Last I heard the rats are twice the size of an average cat in Brooklyn. Y’all need tigers and lions. Lol


    What a great trend. No poisons around the food products. Probably outlawed in my state.

    Our landlord let us have cats for over 20 years. They said no more cats, which caused problems later on, the mouse and rats moved in . Guess what the cats were brought back to the house. It worked, no more rats.
    Your cats are cute and I hope they are great at their job.
