The feline who lives in the Guan Gon Temple on Broome Street has reportedly gone missing.

A concerned Boogie regular sends us the following note about “Do Do.”

Anyone who’s walked down Broome between Eldridge and Forsyth probably knows “Do Do” – the temple cat at the Guan Gong Temple, 294 Broome. He’s often sitting stoically with his quiet Buddha-nature by the door, observing passerby. Sadly, he’s missing, and the temple congregants have put a few signs up around the neighborhood. Hopefully neighbors can keep an eye out around the neighborhood and park and if they see him (we would hope alive) grab him and bring him back to the temple.

He’s a bit of a neighborhood fixture, even us non-Buddhists in the ‘hood are worried about him! Their number is 212-219-8586.
