Young, female ferret found on Aurora Avenue last week

October 9th, 2014 by Doree

Lauren says she found a young female ferret last Thursday night on Aurora Avenue North and North 77th Street. She says it’s definitely someone’s pet, because it allowed itself to be picked up, ate out of a bowl and used a litter box. The ferret is staying at the home of someone else with other ferrets.

If you know the ferret’s owners, please leave a comment below for Lauren.

Black shepherd dog seen running loose around Aurora Avenue this morning

September 29th, 2014 by Doree

Tina tells us she saw a dog running loose around 9 a.m. today (Monday).

I saw a black Shepard dog (with some white spots), medium size, running south on Linden and approx 70th, crossed the street (thankfully cars stopped) and all the way along Aurora, under the bridge and running fast to green lake. Trying to stop him and help getting him, but he looked frightened and run away from me very fast.

And Laura wrote to us on Saturday about what sounds like a similar dog.

925 AM today (Saturday) a dog came running East from 85th and turned south on 99 running in the middle of the street as cars swerved to miss it. It was very fast.

Description: mostly black with white accents, German shepherd build, but taller, pointed ears.

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?

He was running and he will eventually get tired and sit on your porch and look really cute. He is about 20 pounds, has floppy ears and may or may not answer to the name Omak. He is a little scared and is a LONG way from his actual home. If you see him let us know, we will come to where he was spotted.

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. Contact Cynthia 206-459-5563.

Gray Tabby named Nori missing from Phinney/Ballard

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.
