West Seattle cat tale: “Moses has left the building”


In the past day and a half, we’ve received two notes alerting us to a major change in The Junction: Moses the cat is no longer in residence inside Next to Nature. Both notes expressed alarm and concern – is Moses OK? So the ace WSB investigative team stopped by N-to-N this afternoon to find out, and discovered what you see in the photo above – a picture and note that “Moses has left the building. No, he’s not dead. He’s just in retirement. Sightings of him have been reported in Mexico.” Actually, we uncovered the fact that he’s now home with his owners … he just wasn’t happy staying at the store any more. One of our tipsters is relieved to hear that but adds, “I’ll miss him (don’t have a pet of my own, plus he was like a local landmark).” We’ll miss him too; he was definitely a shop fixture, hanging out by the front door much of the time, high enough up that you could try giving his ears a skritch. Enjoy your retirement, Moses!

    I never went to Next to Nature but would have loved Moses. I used to love the big fat cat that used to be at NW Art and Frame.

    Aw, that is sad. I LOOOOVED him, so cute and friendly, always willing to lend his belly for skritches! And he was HUGE! :(

    I’ll miss the Big Boy! But glad he will be content & safe at home. Love his picture.

    Moses made us smile and enjoy our days just a bit more. Just seeing that big lug in the window was enough to make my day!

    Enjoy your retirement you BAD boy! You deserve it!
