Cat shot by pellet gun in Greenwood

September 10th, 2014 by Doree

Brenna says her 1-year-old cat was shot by some kind of pellet gun sometime in the last few days. It happened just north of Sandel Park in Greenwood. The pellet is lodged in the cat’s hind foot.

Though we are thankful that she isn’t hurt worse, we are highly concerned that if this wasn’t an accident there may be a vicious person around our Greenwood neighborhood.

Has anyone else had this happen to their pet?

UPDATE: OWNER FOUND — Young, skinny cat found in Phinney Ridge road this weekend

August 25th, 2014 by Doree

Update: Her owner has been found! Here’s her message to the neighborhood:

Thank you to the many kind PhinneyWood blog readers who recognized Nori from the fliers around the neighborhood and got in touch with me this afternoon – I was inundated with messages! I connected with Reid, and after a three-week adventure, Nori is home – a little skinny, but otherwise no worse for wear. We live in a lovely little corner of the world, and I’m grateful to be a part of this neighborhood that helped bring my cat home. – Robin

Earlier: Reid found a young, skinny, friendly cat in the road at North 65th Street and Sycamore Avenue this weekend. The cat has no collar. Its microchip was registered to a shelter in Southern California, which released the cat to a rescue organization in November 2012. If you recognize the cat, please call Reid at 503-752-1324.

This photo is not of Sophie, but of a cat who looks very similar.

Sophie is a very shy indoor only cat. She will be very scared, wary. If you see her, please do not try to approach her (offer her food and water if at all possible) and call me day or night. Sophie is most likely hiding in bushes or in a protected area in the neighborhood. She may be sneaking in cat doors when it’s quiet for food. Thank you so much for helping bring Sophie home.

She is 2 years old, about 7 pounds, does not have a collar but is micro-chipped. Her owner says it’s possible she’s been accidentally locked in a basement, shed or garage. See more photos in the Craigslist post.

She’s friendly, so it’s quite possible someone in the neighborhood started feeding her. If your neighbor tells you about the cute new cat they’ve seen hanging around, please have them get in touch with me, and/or take the cat to a vet or shelter to have it scanned, at no cost, for a microchip. Email rbn.dc07@gmail.com with any leads.

Cat may have been killed by a coyote

July 30th, 2014 by Doree

Diane tells us her cat was killed near NW 79th Street and 3rd Avenue NW on Monday night by what she thinks was a coyote.

It came up on the deck, drank water from our dog’s bowl, and sometime before/after it killed our cat who was outdoors. I actually saw it out the window but its markings looked more like a husky or malamute. Only now do we assume it was a coyote. Our yard is fenced, as well. Just not completely tight, I guess. We’re sad and want to caution others not to leave their animals outside if possible.

Has anyone else seen a coyote in the neighborhood?
