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: Omak has returned home.
Earlier: Eric and Stacey say their black, white and brown Corgi mix named Omak disappeared from 8th Avenue NW and NW 77th Street around 10 a.m. Sunday.
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.
If you’ve seen Omak, email Eric and Stacey at email@example.com.

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.

Sophie is a medium-sized black cat with a clipped right ear. She ran away near 2nd avenue NW and NW 65th Street on July 19 and is still missing.
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.

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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org with any leads.

Update: The owner has been found.
Earlier: Elizabeth tells us she found this beautiful dog while running around Green Lake this morning.
He very sweetly came to me, and shared a leash with my dog. We walked to the Greenlake Animal Hospital, and he was NOT chipped. Nor was he wearing a collar! But this is clearly someone’s pet. He’s a little chubby (not starving), rides well in the car, and walks nicely on a leash. I brought him to the Seattle Animal Shelter on Elliot Ave, in case someone goes looking for him there. Thus far, he has not been claimed. He was found at the north end of Greenlake.

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?

Update: Dog and owner have been reunited.
Earlier: The nice folks at I Heart Dogs found a young, male vizsla running around near North 64th Street and Green Lake Way, near the 63rd Street underpass, this afternoon. The unneutered dog is now at the dog shop at 6003 Phinney Ave. N. Call 206-920-0090 if he’s yours or you know who he belongs to.
