As all New Yorkers know, the most reliable corner stores also known as bodegas are well-stocked withsnacks, drinks, paper goods, and usually a cat.
They keep out vermin and of course, are just really freaking cute.
There is even an Instagram account dedicated to the furry friends.
However, not everyone loves the whole cat situation. In particular, one woman who wrote a negative Yelp review of K. Deli Market in the East Village, giving the establishment 1 star because of the cat.
It reads: “I’ve ordered from SK before and the sandwiches are pretty good. Today, however, I decided to stop in and grab a sandwich. To my dismay- there was a cat, perched upon some cases of Budweiser in the middle of the store!! Besides being allergic to cats, I wonder what the health code say about this?”
But when this woman’s comments were tweeted out, people became outraged in defense of the cats.
