Readers rave about a rescued elderly cat, a returned cellphone, Seattle firefighters, and considerate neighbors; they rant about catcalls, illegal park fires, rude shoppers, big new houses and of course, unleashed dogs.
RAVE To the person who found our elderly, sick cat 10 days after she had gone missing, saw her having a seizure, and took her to the Seattle Animal Shelter; to the SAS staff for scanning her microchip and calling me immediately; to the Animal Control officer who transported her to the emergency vet and met us there; to the helpful staff at the emergency vet, and to our amazing, resilient old kitty for surviving 10 days without her meds. Our little four-legged miracle is doing well now.
RANT To the group of boys in a car who catcalled me. No woman of any age should have to deal with your issues. My body, my business.
RAVE To the patrons and great staff at the Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit at Pacific Science Center, who found and turned in the cellphone my granddaughter lost there. She was devastated; the idea of going into 7th grade without her phone seemed like the end of the world to her. Thanks for showing her there are many good people in the world.
RAVE AND RANT Rave to Seattle firefighters for their quick response to my call about a smoldering campfire in Magnuson Park. Rant to illegal campfires in the park and those who don’t fully extinguish them, and leave their litter and alcohol bottles for others to clean up.
