Reporting: Monday Morning Murder is about the serial cat killer operating in the area. This morning Harley, a 20 year old deaf cat was the 7th victim. There is a $6000 reward for information leading to the capture of the individual.
DNA has been extracted from the claws of the dead cats in hopes of identifying the murderer. He is operating in nearby Thurston County. The news refused to describe the injuries to the cat this morning. The cats are butchered I assume and “displayed” for people to find in a certain manner. Police believe the person is dangerous and could graduate easily from the cat cruelty to humans! The cats appear to have been family pets rather than strays, and identifiable as to their owners.
We are not that far away. Harley lived in a “cat house” up against the side of the owner’s house. He would not walk up to a stranger. My catio is up against the back of my house as well. I am closing free access, and will open only if I am there to supervise. The heat I was complaining about has returned so they don’t like going out there in the sun, but evening is different. I was ill last week and still am ill so my blog following is falling off. Additionally Marigold spent two days in an emergency cat hospital, is home now, but her condition is not particulary improved in my opinion. Vet tomorrow. Wednesday I have a humourous photo spread about her made a few weeks ago, which I thought of pulling down, but I think I will post it. That’s Wednesday.
Here is a good link to the cat murder story. There is text about Harley and some videos. The videos may not be viewable by people outside the USA, but that could be lucky for you!
So, maybe a few of you will think twice before letting Tabbie out to roam about the garden! Oh, and Marigold needs some big Purrs!
