Incredibly, this is the little cat that had been hanging out around our house over in Seaview– about 36 blocks away! It was nearly starving when we found it roaming the alley back in December.
We fed it and got it healthy (it even came in and out of the cat door at night), but the little thing always ran away when we got too close. We hadn’t seen it in about a week, and can’t believe it managed to walk that far without being hit by traffic on California or 35th.
Since we already have several pets, our plan was to take it to the Seattle Animal Shelter if we could ever catch it! So glad you found this kitty. If no one on the blog wants to adopt it, please do take it to the shelter so it is assured of a good home.
It has been suggested the Humane society in Bellevue. Put a call into Friends of the Animals but no call back yet. Litter box trained,too. Thanks for the info. What a traveler! If you know of a great home for him please post! He’s a friendly fluffy kitty.
Just to clarify, Friends of the Animals Foundation is unable to take the cat. The recommendation is to take it to Seattle Animal Control where it’s owner will be looking (if it has one) or a new home will be found if it has no owner. Thank you to golden for rescuing the cat.
Thank you Lisa, I have a facebook campaign and other networking going on to find a home for intrepid traveler. I am grateful for your spirit of help as well as the West Seattle community. Intrepid traveler is currently hunting stalking noodle in kitchen away from dogs.
Your dedication to intrepid traveler makes my heart warm. I never did find Diesel, though so many offered assistance and encouragement. I can only hope that my sweet Diesel found a person as kind and incredible as you to help him.
You are a blessing to our animal friends. Please let me know if you need assistance with anything.
in peace and with blessings!
An update to this story of Intrepid Traveler. So he stayed with me and dogs for two weeks. With the kind and enthusiastic assistance of a friend he was neutered. We thought that he found a new home but alas his four would be feline room mates declined. With the wonders of networking ,friends and family his new home will be , get this, on Whidbey Island ,on the beach . Tough life. I never had guts enough to give him a name , that meant I wanted to keep him but I could not. A side note , before going to his new home he had a brief stay at family members house long enough to help comfort them in the untimely loss of their 12 year old golden retriever. Case closed? I hope so. I thank everyone for all the support. I propose Mr. Whidbey as his name. But I like Intrepid Traveler too. God Bless the Animals.
