Scottie, The Resident Cat of Scott’s Flowers NYC Has Passed Away

RIP Scottie

Scottie, the resident cat of Scott’s Flowers NYC in Manhattan, died at the age of 16 in May 2013. In 2010, Scott Beale took some photos of Scottie walking around on the streets of New York City.

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.
