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.

Gray Tabby named Nori missing from Phinney/Ballard

August 12th, 2014 by Doree

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 rbn.dc07@gmail.com with any leads.

UPDATE: OWNER FOUND — Dog found at Green Lake this morning — is he yours?

August 7th, 2014 by Doree

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.

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?

Rauch-missing-cat-resized

We don’t expect she has gone far but may be trapped in a basement or shed nearby. She likes to crawl in small dark places and may have done so during the storm on Saturday night. Please check your basement if you live near. No collar but she is microchipped. Very friendly and vocal. Please contact Phinney Ridge Animal Hospital or call 206-478-6393 if you have any information.

Megan says her sister’s cat, Mordor, also disappeared from home on Saturday, at Phinney Avenue and North 61st Street. She’s an indoor cat and not used to being outside, and has no tag or collar. Mordor is black with yellow eyes. If you’ve seen her, please call 206-714-1354.

Beagle with no collar seen running through Greenwood this afternoon

February 26th, 2014 by Doree

Rebecca tells us she saw a beagle with no collar running around Greenwood around 2 p.m. today.

I followed him up Fremont from 80th (he crossed against traffic and was miraculously fine) to 84th and back down Linden toward 80th again. He wouldn’t let me get close enough to grab him, unfortunately, and I lost sight of him as he ran back south toward 80th. He (or possibly she?) seemed on the older side.
