Pet of the week is brought to you by PetFirst Healthcare. Vet bills can be thousands of dollars. You shouldn’t ever be forced to decide between your dog or cat’s health and paying rent on time.  PetFirst allows you to get your dog or cat the care they need without worrying about the expensive cost of veterinary care. Check out their affordable and comprehensive plans here. 

In Bushwick, we love our pets. SRSLY, how many people do you know here who have a furry, fishy or scaly best friend? So every week we’re featuring a Bushwick pet to show just how great all of these guys are. If you’d like your pet to be featured, please fill out this form. We’re a little backed up right now with submissions, kind of like a karaoke queue, but please submit your pets info anyway. We really want to feature all these lil’ guys.  Now meet Carmella the kitty!





Favorite place in Bushwick to hang out:

The back room of my Knickerbocker Avenue apartment, gazing into the backyard at the neighbor’s giant dog house.

Something special about the pet’s personality?

Carmella has lived in many places here in New York City. She first moved to Astoria, Queens, then to the Upper West Side, down to Murray Hill and is happily settling now in Bushwick, Brooklyn..
