Short-haired tabby missing from Greenwood

September 16th, 2013 by Doree

Smilla, a 3-year-old short-haired tabby with green eyes, disappeared from her Greenwood home on Friday. She’s wearing a green collar with her name, address and a little bell. She also has a microchip.

She is an indoors/outdoors cat and comes and goes as she likes (along with her fuzzy brother Rasmus) but she usually comes home every night and doesn’t leave my side so it is very unlike her to not have returned home, especially given the thunderstorms we had. I’m worried that she may have been injured and is hiding somewhere or might have accidentally got locked into a garage or a shed or even a house.

If you’ve seen her, call Gillianne at 206-919-3311.

Injured black cat found in Lower Phinney today

September 8th, 2013 by Doree

Kristen tells us she found an injured black cat today near NW 73rd Street and 7th Avenue NW. The female cat had a serious injury to her neck, so they took her to the vet, who said it was likely the result of a cat fight, but it then became infected.

UPDATE: TUX HAS NEW HOME — Tux the cat was lost, then found, then owners moved, now looking for new home

May 21st, 2013 by Doree

Update Wednesday: After numerous responses from PhinneyWood readers, Noel says Tux has a new home in Wedgwood with a very happy 12-year-old!

Earlier: Tux the cat disappeared from his Phinney Ridge home in January. His owners desperately searched for him, to no avail. Finally, two weeks ago, a PhinneyWood reader contacted us, saying she’d found Tux and was trying to contact his owners, but the phone number was disconnected. We were able to provide the owners’ email address.

Today, Noel tells us she finally reached Tux’s owners, only to find they’ve moved out of the country. And since Noel already has five cats of her own, she’s hoping someone would like to adopt Tux.

Tux is the sweetest cat in the world. He’s just a huge, happy, self-sufficient kitty who wants a meal twice a day and some pets if you can spare them.

The previous owner says he’s around 7 years old and up on all of his shots, perfectly healthy and so loving. Even though he’s quite large (He’s kinda built more like a pit bull then a cat) he’ll almost knock you over with kitty head-bump hugs.

I think the ideal home for Tux would be one where he can be an indoor/outdoor cat. He gets along fine with other cats, loves to be outside, asks for food twice a day and gives big hugs. He’s infinitely entertaining in how he high-steps around the garden, rolling around on the sidewalk to scratch his back and standing with one paw tucked under his chest while he asks for pets.


If you’re interested in adopting Tux, please email Noel.

Missing a long-haired gray and white cat?

March 21st, 2013 by Doree

Jamy tells us a cat has been hanging around the house at North 68th Street and Fremont Avenue North.


The cat is long haired, white with grey tabby patches. It appears to be young and is very friendly but acts as if it is lost and is not being fed. It has no collar and we aren’t able to see its gender due to it being very wiggly. It has been coming to our porch for the last three nights and spends the night there and has some dinner.

If you think the cat is yours, please contact Jamy at jmpotts359@gmail.com or call 360-259-0696.
