Young male tuxedo cat wandering around 2nd Avenue NW

March 4th, 2015 by Doree

Barb tells us a young male tuxedo cat has been wandering around on 2nd Avenue NW between NW 70th and 72nd streets and she’s concerned that he’s lost.

Tuxedo-cat-found-3-4-15-resized

He’s very friendly, and has a very loud yowl. He makes his presence known. He flops down and rolls around as soon as I approach him. He is very trusting and wants to relate and comes to “kitty.”

He comes by late afternoon or early evening. Maybe he’s doing rounds, or maybe his owner lets him out at that time. Or maybe he’s lost. Is this cat yours or a neighbor’s?

Please contact Barb at 206-941-0840 or barb@barbrowandesign.com.

UPDATE: FOUND — Orange tabby missing from Greenwood

March 1st, 2015 by Doree

Update: Nasi has been found and returned home.

Earlier: Tracey says her small orange tabby, named Nasi, did not return home to Dayton Avenue North and North 97th Street on Friday.

He is missing his collar and tags, which were found in our yard. He is super friendly and we hope that a loving person thought he was a stray and picked him up. Please contact us at lostcatgreenwood@yahoo.com if you have seen him.

Woodland Park Zoo elephants moving to Oklahoma City Zoo this spring

February 27th, 2015 by Doree

Woodland Park Zoo announced on its blog today that its remaining two elephants, Bamboo and Chai, will move to the Oklahoma City Zoo sometime in late-March to mid-April.

Activists have long called for the zoo to shut down its elephant exhibit and move them to a sanctuary. Instead, the zoo decided to move them to another zoo where they will be part of a larger herd. Oklahoma currently has a family of five elephants, including a 2-month-old baby.

We are happy to announce that we have selected Oklahoma City Zoo, which best meets our criteria based on recommendations from animal welfare experts: a social herd of Asian elephants into which Chai and Bamboo may successfully integrate, a state-of-the-art facility, a healthy environment free of active infectious disease, high caliber elephant keeper and veterinary staff, a restricted contact management system, and an established history of stable finances and leadership.

You can read the full blog post, which details the decision-making process and how Chai and Bamboo will be moved 2,000 miles.

Volunteers needed to bend 60 more metal monkey frames for next holiday lighting project

February 26th, 2015 by Doree

December’s holiday lighting project in Phinney Ridge and Greenwood brought 150 metal monkeys to businesses and trees throughout the neighborhood, and a lot of good press and attention to local businesses. The demand from businesses and residents to sponsor a monkey was so great that organizers are expanding the troupe for next year.

They’re looking for volunteers to help bend 60 more metal monkey frames. The work will take place in three, four-hour sessions at Close Enough Engineering’s workshop at Lake Union on March 16, 18 and 20.
