When word got out that some kittens born at Goldman Sachs' Battery Park City headquarters were essentially abandoned by the firm—the bank allegedly reneged on earlier promises to have its employees adopt the kitties and pay for vet bills—the bank scrambled to set the story straight. A spokesperson said, "To be clear, we never abandoned the kittens. Every kitten has been adopted. The vet bills were requested several times and they were paid as soon as we received them," and said downtown newspaper The Downtown Express "reported the story inaccurately." So, Goldman Sachs—really rich but not kitten lovers-and-leavers.
