So It’s Raining Cats and Dogs in Rivington St., All in One Litter
Talk is cheap, interesting, and comes in several languages on crowded Rivington St., on the lower East Side. Today much of it was about Mary, the cat in Mike Guerrera’s Oriental restaurant at No. 56 (Scungilli, Capozzelle, steaks and chops). The cat Mary was found July 7 with five kittens. Next day she was found with five kittens and two puppies, all nursing. (The pups are fourth and fifth from left, above.) East Siders figure it this way: The cat had kittens and pups; or there’s something funny going on. They keep calling up Ripley. Photo by Weegee. PM, July 18, 1940
