Bodega cats. They're the adorable unofficial mascots of New York. Lucky for us cat-lovers, freelance artist Sunny Eckerle of BedStuy has been drawing the felines since 2014. Eckerle recently launched an Instagram account to showcase her illustrations. Each one gives the name of the kitty, a fun fact about it and the location of its bodega home (which is also depicted in the image). Check out some of her posts below, and go to Eckerle's website Brooklyn Bodega Cats for more.
