Sweetie has passed away

We just went out and identified her body. Sweetie was hit by a car on Erie in SE DC. We are heartbroken over this, as we were SO CLOSE. We had a time and place that we were pretty sure we could trap her in the enclosure trap.

She is happily playing at the Rainbow Bridge with her dear friend, Buddy, who went to the Rainbow Bridge mid-March. Thank you for all your efforts everyone!

ANOTHER sightiing

One of our volunteers saw Sweetie with her very own eyes! Hanging out at the Senior Wellness Center on the corner of Alabama and 30th SE in DC. It's a shame our girl is so shy, otherwise we could have had her.

We have our enclosure trap out and placed, with volunteers monitoring, so cross your fingers that she goes in this time (we are using a different trap now since she wouldn't go in the other one).

If you can't be on site, but still want to help the search effort, please donate! Thank you!

another new sighting!

Sweetie has just been sighted on Insey Street in District Heights . We have someone headed out right now to check it out!


It appears that Miss Sweetie can't decide whether she enjoys Maryland or DC more, and goes back and forth. The sighting from yesterday was confirmed last night, and it appears she shows herself at that location on and off! We also think we may have found her DC den, so we will keep an eye on that and hopefully bring her home soon!!!
