Otter the cat is missing from Greenwood

January 8th, 2015 by Doree

A cat named Otter is missing from Greenwood. More info from her owners:

Otter, the cat, is quite the socialite around the 9200 block of Phinney Ave. Trouble is, she’s not checked in at any of the places she’s known to visit in the past few days. If you’ve seen her or if she’s convinced you she’s a homeless waif, please let us know. We’ve gotten kinda worried. She’s 15. No collar at the moment, and she is kinda scrawny.

Please email mahalia_b@yahoo.com with any info.

UPDATE: FOUND — White cat missing from Green Lake might be in Phinney Ridge

December 31st, 2014 by Doree

Update Jan. 8: Tip has been found.

Earlier: Ted says his white cat named Tip disappeared from his Green Lake home on Dec. 26. Tip is an indoor/outdoor cat. Ted thinks Tip may have jumped into the Albert Lee Appliance delivery truck that was parked in front of their home that day. The truck’s next delivery was in Phinney Ridge near NW 73rd Street and 6th Avenue NW, so he’s thinking that if Tip did get into the truck, he may have jumped out here in our neighborhood.

Tip is a 2-year-old Birman, no collar or microchip. He is white, with a black tail that is white on the tip (hence his name). He also has a permanent eye infection that is very noticeable.

In this photo, Tip is on top of his sister.

UPDATE: RHINO FOUND — Rhino the gray cat disappeared Friday; Sophia the black cat still missing since July

December 30th, 2014 by Doree

Update: Rhino has just been found at a PAWS shelter in Lynnwood.

Earlier: Francie’s gray cat, named Rhino, has been missing from North 84th Street and Linden Avenue North in Greenwood since Friday.

Rhino the cat has always been an outdoor cat who comes home to eat multiple times a day. Neighbors know him as well but no one has seen him. He doesn’t wear a collar (refuses) and isn’t micro-chipped yet.

If you’ve seen him, call Francie at 206-330-8801.

And Cynthia sent us a note to say that her black cat, Sophia, who disappeared in July from NW 65th Street and 2nd Avenue NW, is still missing. She is microchipped but has no collar; the tip of her right ear is cut off straight across. She is an indoor cat who got out of the house accidentally.

Most likely she will not approach anyone and will run away from anyone who approaches her. It would be great if someone sees her, they leave a little food out and call me…or just call me so that I may set up a humane trap to save her. She left at a weight of about 10 pounds but has most likely lost weight and may appear small. She has a small delicate head and green/gold eyes. We miss her desperately and want to have her safe at home. We continue to post signs and check the shelter, but someone is taking down many of our signs. Very sad and counter productive.

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 Sophia, but of a cat who looks very similar.

Sophia 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 Sophia home. Contact Cynthia 206-459-5563.

Gray Tabby named Nori missing from Phinney/Ballard

August 12th, 2014 by Doree

Update: Nori has been found!

Earlier: Nori, a gray Tabby, disappeared from her home in the 6200 block of 5th Avenue NW on the morning of Aug. 2.

Nori-cat-8-12-14-resized

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.
