If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
“Sending along a photo of Raina, aka “Traffic Kitty,” who is 6-weeks old. I was in an Uber driving to work a week ago in the rain when I spotted a very very tiny kitty in the middle of 395! The uber driver was nice enough to pull off while I ran back and managed to catch her. She’d been just sitting there alone in a mud puddle, along one of the concrete barriers.
Despite her rough start, she only had minor eye infections and, with treatment, is now doing great! Here are before and after shots of her. The before was taken in the Uber right after we caught her. And, kudos to the Uber driver Michael who was brave enough to stop his car for me so we could rescue her.
Kudos to Atlas Vet who helped nurse her back to health and who waived their normal emergency fee due to “good Samaritanism.”
“Ozzy from Columbia Heights.”
“I found a cat in our yard last night who doesn’t seem to want to go home. Super friendly, and very clearly belongs to someone. I can be contacted at h_wilson(at)mac.com.”
