  • Is this your kitty?
    Is this your kitty?
    Are you missing a cat? This cute tabby was spotted at 13th Avenue South and South Spokane Street at around 11:15pm last night hanging out on a front porch. The neighbor who saw him didn’t bring him inside, but just wanted to get the word out where this cat is hanging out, in case someone’s missing their kitty. (Thanks, Robert!)

  1. There are signs on posts around the neighborhood for a lost tabby with medium hair named Zoe. Kind of looks like this kitty. I don’t have the number with me, but the signs are up all around Java Love and the surrounding area.
