Follow Baxter the 5 Pointz graffiti cat on Instagram

You may have met the black feline at 5 Pointz before it was painted over—but now there’s a way to stay abreast of the cat’s new adventures

After 5 Pointz's devastating surprise whitewashing, graffiti artists weren't the only ones without a home. The space's resident cat, Baxter, had to move out too. It's okay, though: The black feline, a fixture at the Long Island City warehouse, was placed in a foster home ahead of 5 Pointz's imminent demolition. Now, you can follow the adorable cat's adventures through his Instagram account: @graffiticatbaxter.

The account is run by the cat's new owner, Untapped Cities writer Rachel Fawn Alban, and at this early stage there are a few shots, including the one below of Baxter roaming through a colorful, tagged 5 Pointz. Definitely an account to follow!
