Police responded to the cat shelter and found a blanket with writing on it that said, “The homeless need a home … just not my backyard, not Richmond Beach.”
A cat was killed shortly after it was stolen from a cat rescue in Shoreline, the King County Sheriff’s Office says.
Around noon Tuesday, a volunteer with Whisker City Cat Rescue, in the 1600 block of North 183rd Street, called police to report an outdoor cat shelter had been broken into and the cat was missing.
Police responded to the shelter and found a yellow blanket with green writing on it that said, “The homeless need a home … just not my backyard, not Richmond Beach.”
Just before 5 p.m., the employee told police she found the body of the missing cat in a trash bin outside the shelter. The animal’s head had been crushed, the Sheriff’s Office says.
