My iguana headed out Saturday morning, Oct 17th. He cannot survive long in this weather. He was last seen near the I-90 trail at Atlantic & 17th AVE S, and may have wandered down towards 18th, up towards 23rd, or even climbed over the wall towards I-90. If you have seen him, please email me. If you live in the area or know people in the area, especially anyone who might have been driving Saturday morning, or running or biking on the I-90 trail, please let them know about this search.
You may recall when Nauney went missing last month. After returning home, she was fitted with a collar. A little while later, the collar went missing. A couple of days after that, Nauney did. There’s concern she may have gotten accidentally locked up in a shed or house under renovation nearby.
She was last seen Sunday, October 4th, on the corner of 13th and Hill Street. She is a very friendly gray tabby with green/yellow colored eyes and is a loud talker.
Please call Rosie at 701-610-4555 or Seth at 206-914-0557 with any info.
My indoor cat has escaped in the neighborhood around MacPhersonâ€™s Market on Columbian on Wednesday night. She is a black cat, big and fat. She doesnâ€™t wear a collar — she always would take it off — but she is micro chipped.
I donâ€™t have a picture of her on my computer — but she is just a regular, hefty black catâ€¦ She is also very loved and missed. Sheâ€™s been part of my family for 8 years and sheâ€™s never been outside before except for trips to the vet.
If someone finds her, her name is Gracie. Please contain her if possible and call me: 206-419-8986.
This lost kitty was last seen Friday, September 18, on the corner of 13th and Hill Street. She is very friendly and is a loud talker. Her name is Nauney, but she also goes by Pretty Kitty. She is a gray tabby with green/yellow colored eyes.
Please call Rosie at 701-610-4555 or Seth at 206-914-0557 with any info.

The Green City Partnerships blog has a story about Andrea Ostrovsky and Mary DeJong, who have worked hard to improve the Cheasty Greenspace over the last couple of years, including hosting community work parties in Cheasty on the first Saturday of every month. In Ostrovsky and DeJong’s vision, the Greenspace is “a potential link between Beacon Hillâ€™s Lockmore neighborhood and Columbia City,” among other things.

Maria on the mailing list writes,
“Earlier tonight (09/23/09) I found a emaciated grey cat on 20th and Lander. She is very friendly, obviously not feral, no collar, grey with white paws and white diamond-shaped marking on neck and gold eyes. She was extremely thin and hungry. I gave her some food and took her to the Seattle Animal Shelter where they checked her for a microchip (she didn’t have one). They are holding her for four days as a stray before she’s put up for adoption. Her case number is 13021. Does anyone know whose cat this may be? If you do, please call the SAS at 206-386-4294. I would have kept her at my house but my cats would have really freaked out.”
“Have you seen this dog? Betty is a 1yr old french bulldog who was last seen on Monday afternoon (9/20) in the dog run next to our house at 13th and Atlantic on North Beacon Hill. We really want her back, so please contact us if you have seen her. You can call John at 206-235-0365. $200 reward.”
Followup: John says, “I have good news. Betty has been found and is back home doing well. She was sold to someone in Chinatown yesterday, who saw our flyer today and returned her this afternoon. Neighbors should feel free to say ‘hi’ when you see Betty on her walks! Many thanks to our Beacon Hill neighbors and the super blogtenders!”
We are glad that Betty is back home where she belongs!
Do you recognize this dog? Know where he belongs? He’s a rather timid and skittish and probably really wants to be home. Contact email@example.com if you can help get him there.
On the flip side of “found”, Kazi the orange tabby cat has been missing from his home near the Jefferson Park golf course since Sunday. He may be wearing a blue “stinky cat”-labeled collar. If you’ve seen him, please contact his owner through this Craigslist posting.
Dayna P writes with a question about organizing a trash pickup effort on her block:
Hi. I’m a neighbor on 13th Ave S by Maple Park and recently walked to a friend’s house on 12th Ave, towards downtown. I just couldn’t believe the amount of trash on the street… really awful! I’m wondering if anyone out there is interested in helping me organize a neighborhood trash pickup day. I’ve never done anything like this, so don’t know the best way to go about it. Anyone out there want to help get this going? Does anyone know if the city/parks dept has any programs that help this kind of effort?
The Seattle Public Library is seeking Homework Helpers for the 2009-2010 school year.

Openings are available at many south-end branches, including the Beacon Hill branch. For more information and to request a volunteer application, please contact Anne Vedella, Volunteer Services Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, August 14.

Some strange things are afoot on 14th. Kara on the mailing list wrote yesterday:
We seem to have some suspicious activity going on at 14th Ave S and S Nevada. There is a red Toyota Corolla that waits at the intersection for a “delivery” from someone on foot or in a black extended cab Toyota Tacoma. They make an exchange and away they go. We’ve seen it twice in the last month, most recently this evening (Monday) around 9pm.
I suspect that it is drugs. We have reported it to SPD. If anyone else sees these vehicles hanging around PLEASE report to 911.
Three burglary suspects were caught (and one remains at large) following a break-in at a home in the 4100 block of 13th Avenue South on Friday, reports the SPD Blotter. That didn’t make much of an impact, however. Hazel mentioned on the mailing list and in a post on her blog about another break-in which occurred not too far away at her home, 20th and Spokane on Saturday. Any recommendations for security companies? The question has come up on the list since.
Travis posted several interesting neighborhood-related blog entries over the weekend, including a firsthand account of attempted plant theft from the landscaping around the new Beacon Hill light rail station and the strange appearance of an SPU trailer near Daejeon Park.
I wonder if we’ll see anything like this with our new Residential (or Restricted) Parking Zone: A comparison of what it’s like just inside and outside the RPZ near Swedish Cherry Hill from Central District News.

Hi Wendi & Jason,
We live at 20th and Lander and found an attacked blackish brown cat this morning. Â We think it was killed by a wild animal last night sometime but didn’t hear anything.Â Â We don’t recognize as one of the regular cats around and it doesn’t have any tags but looks too well groomed to be feral. We’ve already called Animal Control and they said they’ll be up to remove the body. We have a picture of the face (not too gruesome, but not postable either). Â We can e-mail it to anyone who thinks that it might be theirs.
Patrick & Leigh
You can reach Patrick at email@example.com.
There are quite a few wild animals in and around the Hill, including some coyotes. We hope your pets are safe and sound.
While walking home Saturday afternoon, we met a neighbor walking this very sweet and friendly dog on 16th Avenue South. She said she found the dog recently and is looking for her owner. If this is your dog, please call 206-769-6425.
We hope all of your pets are at home, happy and healthy after last night’s fireworks. Unfortunately, we’ve gotten a lot of reports of pets going walkabout lately, even before the July 4th noise.
This message was posted yesterday on the Georgetown neighborhood mailing list by firstname.lastname@example.org:
Friday night July 3, a very well mannered and nice yellow dog appeared at
the 9 lb Hammer. He is definitely not a stray. No collar or tags were found,
I have taken him into my care until his owner is found. If you know of
anyone that lost a dog last night, he is at my home on Warsaw. I will
contact the shelter on Sunday to see if he has a chip and to report him,
however I will not be handing over custody of him to the shelter. Please let
me know if you know where this dog belongs, I believe he came down from
Henry, a neighbor at 19th Avenue South and South Lander, found an adorable little black kitty in his yard on July 4. The cat has a pink collar and bell, but no tags. Is she yours? Contact Henry at email@example.com.
On Friday evening, a four-year-old brindle lab/pit mix dog, Bruno, was lost from the area of 19th Avenue South and South College Street. He’s 85-90 pounds, and has a black collar with ID tags. If you find him, please call 253-218-9635 or 253-332-6944.
One other possible pet was reported to be making its own noise — a rooster. Roosters are, of course, illegal in the city of Seattle (you can have three hens, though!). Rumor has it that at least one rooster is running wild in North Beacon, however, so the one that’s been cock-a-doodle-dooing this week near the area of 15th Avenue South and South College Street may be the that one.
Update, July 6: We are told that the rooster near 15th and College really does belong to someone (see the comments below) and has been living there for some time now. Also, we were apparently misinformed. Roosters are not illegal in Seattle. But neighbors can make noise complaints to Animal Control at 206-386-7387.
