There is at least one familiar face you won’t be seeing in the garden this year. Spotlight, a longtime member of the West 104th Street Garden cat colony, has left the great outdoors.
Though she has given up her garden condo, Spotlight remains in the neighborhood having retired to an apartment just a few blocks away. She now resides there with a former garden member. Spot, as she is now known, is wrapping up her first winter indoors.
Her many garden friends and admirers will be pleased to learn that our feline friend has thoroughly adjusted to her new life as a couch potato. Of course, while Spot may miss her previous life from time to time — sitting in her garden and those long summer nights patrolling its perimeter for rodents — it doesn’t show…really, not one little bit.
