Cat washes up on Governors Island

NEW YORK | Did a calico cat from New Jersey swim across New York Harbor? The mystery surrounds a white, orange and black feline that arrived last weekend on Governors Island.

Security guards found the cat on the island’s north shore. Her fur was salty, matted and caked with seaweed.

A Governors Island spokeswoman, Elizabeth Rapuano, told the Daily News that workers there had a theory: The cat swam to safety after being swept up in torrential rains in New Jersey. That’s more than a mile away.

Rapuano said the calico is a great addition to the 172-acre island but will welcome any leads that would help find the owner.
