Never fear, Catman is here! Big-hearted Queens Towman\Mechanic rescues animals in his free time

in Havin' Some Fun!

When this improbable bit of engine trouble strikes, it’s time to call the cat mechanic.

Meet Ralph Gonzalez, the burly operations manager at Big City Auto Body & Towing and rescuer of more than a dozen wayward cats from beneath the hoods of parked cars around Queens.

“I’m just doing what needs to be done,” said Gonzalez after preventing a recent kitty catastrophe in Astoria. “I’m an animal lover. I see an animal in distress, I gotta help.”
