Lost cat…named Puppyface

July 18th, 2016 by Mike

Bre emails:

We’ve lost a calico cat! Left our yard on Northeast 80th Street heading toward Brooklyn Ave Northeast Friday 7/14 a.m. and hasn’t come home.

She’s fairly shy and dopey, very sweet and loving and not very street-wise. Her name is Puppyface and she has a collar with a tag and microchip. We’re worried she is stuck in a garage or shed or new house construction somewhere probably south of the park but maybe she got adventurous (or turned around) and went north?

Contact information if seen/found: Bre Holt, 206-499-9003.

White cat Hazel missing since last week

November 17th, 2015 by Mike

Victoria emails:

My beautiful cat hasn’t been home since last Wednesday night (11/11). Her last known location was Northeast  88th Street and 17th Avenue Northeast.

She is a domestic short-hair, all-white cat with light green/hazel eyes. Which is fitting, since her name is Hazel. She is full-bodied so she wouldn’t be picked up by someone thinking she was a stray. She is an indoor/outdoor kitty, microchipped but doesn’t wear a collar, very friendly but skittish. She chirps and meeps instead of meows.

She’s been away for a few days before, I know she gets into other people’s houses and hangs there for a bit and I wonder if she’s done that with the oncoming storm. Though, this information about coyotes in the neighborhood has me worried.

Please, if anyone has seen her, call or text Victoria at 206.422.7087. Or leave a comment here. Any information is welcome. Thank you.

A tale of two lost pets.

Clayton emails:

“My highly social dog Rocky jumped the back fence of our home on Northeast 98th Street and 12th Avenue Northeast to go say ‘hi’ to the neighborhood at 6:00 on Sunday (September 21). He is a large white and tan Shepherd/Mix he is very friendly and gravitates to other dogs.

And Junko emails:

I’m hoping you might be able to help us get the word out about our lost cat, Izzie. We’ve lived in Maple Leaf for 15 years (on Fifth Avenue Northeast and Northeast 80th Street) and thought Maple Leaf Life might be the perfect way to reach the broader community.

Female, “grey” (black/brown/creme) tabby with short hair

She is people-shy and scares easily

Update Aug. 1: He’s back.

We found Devin a few hours ago! We would have had no idea which direction to begin looking if it weren’t for the quick blogger response. Really… words simply cannot express my gratitude!


Brooke emails tonight:

“I was hoping you could put this flyer for my lost cat on the blogsite?

“Thank you for your help, I’m going to paper canvas the neighborhood tomorrow, but am doing any internet stuff I can right now. THANK YOU!”

The flyer says Devin Foss, 15 years old, snuck out after a bath July 28th between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. He lives at Northeast 89th Street and 15th Avenue Northeast.

He is neither collared nor chipped, but has a healing cyst on his left ear.
