Much like there are pizza places and authentic New York pizza places, there are also bodegas and authentic New York bodegas. What differentiates the two? According to a rule we just made up, just now, as we were typing this out, an authentic bodega is home not only to decades-old cans of beans and tuna, but also to a bodega cat, which patrols the store for vermin and startles customers who almost step on it by accident all the time.
After years of being ignored, bodega cats are finally getting their due attention. They have their own Flickr page, one of them made an appearance in the first season of Louie, and now, they are the focus of a faux nature documentary, replete with British narration.

A federal judge on Wednesday vacated a nationwide freeze on evictions that was put in place by federal health officials to help cash-strapped renters remain in their homes during the pandemic.
The ruling was a win for a coalition of property owners and realtors, who brought one of several challenges against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) eviction moratorium, which was first enacted under former President Trump and later extended through June.
In a 20-page ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich, who was appointed by Trump, ruled that the agency exceeded its authority with the temporary ban.
“The question for the Court is a narrow one: Does the Public Health Service Act grant the CDC the legal authority to impose a nationwide eviction moratorium? It does not,” Friedrich wrote.
