Available Lost

  1. Cat Available – This grey/black cat has been hanging around our daughter's home in Bonnie Lake for a couple of weeks. She is about 7 months, and is a wonderful, sweet lap cat. She seems to have been abandoned rather than being accustomed to being out.  She has shown no interest in going outside, and would probably be a good house cat. Submitted by Sylvia Strahan, d-s-strahan@q.com.
  2. Cat Lost - Missing very friendly all white cat. He has short hair and green eyes. Missing two weeks now from East Lake Desire. Please call Tammie 425-687-0510, codsky@aol.com.
  3. Cat Found - A beautiful black and smudges of brown cat, about 2-3 years old, very friendly and cold showed up on Christmas at our deck. No collar, looks like an indoor cat very well taken care of that may gave gotten out today. She is under our deck. Debi Callahan, 18554 W Lake Desire SE. Contact 425-226-8474 or callie7588@hotmail.com.
  4. Neighborhood Watch - About a week ago I walked outside and found a guy in my yard that was obviously scouting for or intending a robbery. I surprised him when I opened the door, so he quickly turned to leave. I asked: can I help you ("no"),  who was he looking for (he awkwardly made up a name), where does your friend live (on Lake Desire "Street"), what house number (he didn't know). By then he was almost running to his vehicle, which was running with a driver inside. They took off so fast that so I couldn't see the license plate or model of the dark (black?) truck. He is a tall, medium weight white male, 20 or 30s, dark hair, zip sweatshirt in gray or cream or combo. I called 911 immediately, but the police couldn't follow the truck as they were busy catching the driver of stolen car that was causing accidents. However, an officer just came by to get details from me, and he asked that neighbors call 911, and reference case # 09317639, if they see suspicious activity.
