A lost white cat appears! Is he yours? (UPDATE)

UPDATE (Tuesday, December 13): We’ve just heard the good news from Anthony (via email): “Just an update, we got in touch with the owners of the white cat last night! He is from a home around 56th and 12th. Thank you again so much for posting that on the blog!”


Readers Anthony and Julia may have found your lost kitty (via email, emphasis ours):

We were just opening the door to leave the apartment and the crafty little guy just snuck inside! We’re on the 1300 block of NE Ravenna [Blvd], so just across from Cowen Park. He’s an all-white adult male, extremely curious and friendly to humans, which leads us to believe he might belong to someone (no collar or microchip, however). We think he may have been missing for a while because he was a bit dirty and had a minor infection around one of his eyes. I have attached a photo that we took. We had to take him into the Seattle Animal Shelter, because our lease doesn’t allow for pets, but we really want to find his owners who must miss him very much!


Anthony and Julia live in the neighborhood nexus of the Ravenna, Roosevelt, and University District neighborhoods, so Lost White Kitty could be from any one of those.

Another pooch on the loose in Ravenna/Roosevelt/? (Update: FOUND)

UPDATE (August 19): Good news from Matt in the ol’ inbox this morning!

Got him!

A few kids playing soccer at Eckstein Middle School called with the tip, and my wife Susie went and scooped him up.

Thank you to everyone who kept a lookout for Buddy. And three cheers for Eckstein students!


These are, indeed, the dog days of summer: I’ve another lost dog to report.

From reader Matt:

Our dog Buddy ran away from the dog sitter in Ravenna Wednesday evening August 10th. He’s a small (nine pounds), tan and white male Havanese. He has a brown leather collar with tags, and he’s microchipped too. He was last seen bolting north across 65th towards Roosevelt High School. He’s pretty timid, so please don’t chase if you see him.

If you see him, please call 954-7260.

Are you missing a cat?

It's a boy, and BOY is he hungry!

Hot out of the inbox:
Could you post this on the Ravenna blog?  We were found by this cat (see photos) who keeps trying to walk into our house, so he’s clearly tame. I am sure his owner must miss him very much.  he was found wandering on Park Road, near Ravenna Blvd and 20th Street, last Thursday.  Thanks so much.

He looks very cuddly, yes?

He has a large gray patch on his face, and two gray patches on each side, and is very friendly.  If you are missing him, please call or email me, and I can get him back to you. Please forward around the various neighborhood lists as needed — he needs to go back home!
