    WSB, can you find out which vet this is and whether they’re accepting donations to help cover the vet bills?

    KOMO 4 just ran a teaser on this incident, for a story coming up during their 6:00 PM broadcast.


    They’re saying the guy that did this, is claiming self-defense.


    Oh god, give me a break! :( :mad:

    Scat is at South Seattle Veterinary Hospital in Top Hat on 1st Av, near the Barrell Tavern.


    Going by memory, the phone number is 206-242-8338.

    Thanks for the vet tip, Mike. I am away from tv set(s) at the moment but knew this would be a tv story for sure … I asked Sgt. Urquhart a couple hours ago if he knew which vet and he did not – TR

    KOMO link
    says that Pasado’s Safe Haven has offered to cover all of the cat’s medical expenses – TR

    My pleasure TR.


    The phone number I provided is correct. I was just getting ready to start dinner at the time of my previous posting, so wanted to post the info before I forgot. :o

    Too bad animal cruelty is as bad as it gets for idiots like this…

    I just saw this story on Q13 news.
    What an awful terrible jerk. At least he is already arrested.
    Yeah right, “self defense” with a box cutter—against a cat!!! give me a break.
    That’s great that Pasado’s is footing the bill —they are a GREAT organization.

    King county should operate an incinerator pit for people like this. It would not only keep this psychopath off the streets but it would serve as a deterrent for these types of crimes as well as provide jobs for local incinerator pit techs.

    Just heard on KOMO 4 News that Scat is improving.


    He’s up and eating, and could be released in a few days! :)
