An apparently blind cat and a dog were found in Howard Beach on Friday, the dog’s leash attached to the cage that held the tabby.

Several residents noticed the cage on 91st Street between 159th and 160th avenues, and stood watch over the animals waiting for the owner to return, locals said.

After several hours, the residents called local shelters, but were told there was no room.

Pictures of the pets were posted on Facebook, which prompted one Howard Beach resident to take the dog in while another is holding on to the cat until a home can be found for it.
