Quixote's cage was broken into, and he was killed
By Diane Hettrick

An outraged and sickened community has rallied to try to find and arrest the person responsible for stealing and killing a cat from a Shoreline cat shelter on Tuesday, September 19, 2017.

Quixote, a cherval cat housed at Whisker City Cat Shelter in Shoreline, was taken from his outdoor cage and his skull crushed. The perpetrator threw the body into the dumpster on site.

The King County Sheriff's Office is investigating and asks the community to call if you have information about this case, 206-296-3311.

Seattle Humane in Bellevue is offering up to $5,000 in reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the animal abuser linked to the cat's death.

A private GoFundMe page was set up to pay for DNA testing of material from Quixote's teeth and claws. The funding goal of $3,000 was reached and exceeded in one day. The current pledges stand at $13,600. The extra money will be used for security for the shelter site, and potentially for reward money or shelter needs.
