On Tuesday September 19, 2017 at 3:00am someone broke into Whisker City Cat Rescue on 183rd and Ashworth and stomped a cat to death.

"Quixote" was an exotic Savannah breed and valued at $3500. Neighbors believe the perpetrator lives in the area and has a grudge against the shelter. There are no recorded complaints with police or animal control against Whisker City.

The brutal beating took place under a bright porch light in the outdoor enclosure of one of the cabins used for housing special needs cats, like birthing and closely related domestic cats. Anyone walking by at that hour would have heard the violent beating. A hearing witness said the beating was intermittent and lasted for approximately 15 minutes. That witness did not call 911.

A combined reward of $26,000 has been raised and will be doubled by a private donor upon conviction. Shelter founder, April Brown, is asking surrounding neighbors and business owners to check video footage for any person walking in the area between Aurora and Meridian down Ashworth street after midnight on September 18 and before daylight on September 19.

The Shoreline Police and King County Sheriff’s detectives are actively investigating the brutal and senseless killing of Quixote, a cat staying at the Whisker City Cat Rescue. Detectives have been canvassing the area looking for witnesses, surveillance video and other evidence. Detectives have been in contact with local enforcement agencies and King County Animal Control and are diligently working to identify and hold the person(s) accountable for this violent act. If you have information that can assist detectives please call 911, or 206-296-3311.

Regardless of how you feel about the shelter, please remember that perpetrators of domestic violence, violent felonies, etc often have animal abuse in their backgrounds. Something to ponder if you think you know who might have been involved.
