The Cat Rescuers: a documentary that needs to be told
The Cat Rescuers, tells the story of efforts to deal with over a million cats roaming the streets of New York City.
As many of the cats are feral, you won’t see them during the day. They are hiding underneath cars and in alleys, but they are there.
There are so many the city can’t handle the problem, and that’s where the Cat Rescuers have stepped in. The feature-length documentary tells the story of Sassee, Claire, Stu and Tar, four of the dedicated, street-smart volunteers making a difference in the homeless cats of Brooklyn.
No cat should have to live on the brink of starvation, outside, in the cold. The upcoming documentary profiles four dedicated cat rescuers in Brooklyn, New York working to improve the lives of NYC’s one million estimated abandoned and feral cats. To view the Kickstarter trailer, visit

It sounds pretty awesome!
I am glad this is being made, someone needs to speak out for these poor kitties.
It is unbelievable that there are that many cats in NYC. It’s a great project and a story that needs to be told, indeed.
That’s an amazing project and it looks like they are darn good at telling the story!
Sounds like it will be a great film, and it indeed is a story that needs to be told.
