Update: Nala has returned home after she went missing a week and a half ago. Here’s a note from Charlie Shin, who posted on the My Ballard Group about Nala a week ago:
“After a harrowing week and half…Nala just showed up last night and walked up to her mom in the back porch. I received a FaceTime call from Sonya and couldn’t believe my eyes. I think the last time I had tears was when I was 10.”
Shin thanks everyone for their help in looking for Nala.
Original: We’ve seen a lot of lost pets over the years, but a new Ballard resident is pulling out all the stops to to find her missing cat — including offering a $2,000 reward.
On the same day she moved to Ballard, Sonya says her timid calico cat Nala escaped her home at 65th St. and 10th Ave. Since then, Sonya has been canvassing the area, putting up posters, visiting shelters, installing surveillance cameras and posting the news on just about every social media account and message board she and her friends can find.
Members of the My Ballard Group have kicked into gear as well, offering ideas, spreading the news and even helping put up posters around the neighborhood.
The cat escaped on July 21st, and Sonya believes she could be hiding nearby.
If you see Nala, here’s the number to call in this Facebook post.
