FAWNS, FLOODS AND FELINES: Things were not so carefree for the creamy gray tiger in the summer of 2020, when she was discovered by former Ocean Beach Mayor Thomas Schwarz in Lonelyville – a lonely kitten indeed – shivering and in distress. His granddaughter reached out to Fire Island Animal Welfare Society, who did a little networking to place her with a couple who had lost their beloved elder cat only a few months before. Now she is queen of all she surveys. Photo contributed by Ember Schmidt.
