Injured cat rescued from Brooklyn-Queens Expressway
A cat found injured under the Brooklyn-Queen Expressway was rescued earlier this week.
A driver first noticed "Suzy Q" under the Brooklyn Promenade and sent a message about it on Facebook.
Anne Levine, president of the Brooklyn Bridge Welfare Coalition and manager at the Brooklyn Cat Café, said she got a text from a friend about the cat.
"I think she may have been thrown or someone didn't have her secure inside of a car and she jumped out," says Levine.
Levine says she and a few friends rescued Suzy Q, but noticed that her tail was badly injured. She says the cat needs surgery that will cost more than $1,000, and they are trying to raise money to pay for the surgery.
Suzy Q is now in the care of the Park Slope Veterinary Center. They hope to have her tail amputated next week followed by an adoption in the future.
