He was born under the Kosciuszko Bridge in Brooklyn in November of 1996. Shortly there after, Scottie became a staple of Fifth Avenue fame at the 23rd Street location of Scott’s Flowers, known for his outward affection towards Scott’s customers and employees alike.
Scottie the cat became a mini celebrity, and was covered in The New York Times, mentioned on MTV, written about in dozens of floral magazines, and even led one Italian family to return to New York City to take a picture with Scottie years after they met this beloved cat.
Scottie was loved so dearly because he embodied years of happy smiles and joyful faces at Scott’s Flowers. He represented an entire community with his love, affection and friendliness. He will be truly missed.
