Tracy Clark, the man accused of “gutting” Scatt, a therapy cat at White Center’s Cross Church, plead “Not Guilty” to a first degree animal cruelty charge Wednesday morning at King County Superior Court.
Clark allegedly attacked Scatt, the church’s therapy cat for the last eight years, on Sunday April 19th, resulting in multiple injuries including a “collar-bone to tail” knife wound…
From our sister site The White Center Blog comes this horrific story that sounds like it’s straight out of a Stephen King novel:
When writing fiction, oftentimes writers resort to having to depict a bad guy as being “really bad” by showing him hurting an animal; this is often referred to as the “kicking the dog” scene, and it’s intended to make audiences hate the antagonist.
However, in this true story, the bad guy is so bad that we won’t have to resort to writing that scene â€“ he already lived it out, and is now paying for it:
King County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 47-year old man in White Center Sunday on animal cruelty charges after he allegedly severely injured a church’s cat with a box cutter knife.
The incident occurred at Cross Church, located at 1320 SW 102nd in White Center…
We are more than thrilled to bark out a welcoming wag to Pretty Paws, a wonderful pet grooming service.
â€œA Full Service Pet Spa,â€ as their slogan goes.
Established in 1999, Pretty Paws moved a little over two years ago from its Ambaum location to its present home, a little white house at 123 SW 158th, west of 1st Ave. S., just north of US Bank in Burien (see map below).
â€œWe specialize in expert pet grooming,â€ says founder and owner Kathy Graf, an International Pet Groomers Association Certified Master Groomer.
Kathyâ€™s crew is led by Dawn, who has worked at Pretty Paws for almost its entire decade in business.
â€œI was bathing dogs when I was 8 and picked up my first pair of doggie clippers 4 years later,â€ says Dawn.
â€œI learned a lot about pet grooming from my mother.â€
â€œDawn is particularly good with specialty clips for poodles,â€ says Kathy.
â€œRemember, we also groom cats. Even the finicky ones. Not all shops offer this service.
â€œAlso, for Burien-area senior citizens with mobility problems, we will pick up and drop off their pets for a small additional fee.â€
You can pick up pet food at Pretty Paws as well as products such as dog sweaters and Coach collars and leashes.
Thereâ€™s even a dog house for sale.
One of our B-Town Blog reporters, who is always looking to make a million dollars quickly, recently said to Kathy and her crew â€œHey! Iâ€™ve got a great brand name for dog bone products! They should be called â€˜Fetch â€˜Emsâ€™. You want to trademark that with us?â€
â€œUh, you go right on ahead and trademark that one yourself,â€ Kathy said, rolling her eyes. â€œGood luck with that, okay?â€
Pretty Paws even has its own onsite African Gray Parrot, named Cash.
â€œCash really likes (human) men,â€ say the Pretty Paws workers.
Cash will even offer its own loud vocal â€œGoodbye!â€ as happy customers walk out the door.
Pretty Paws also offers baby sitting services for special customers â€“ call or visit to inquire further.
Exciting future note: Kathy Graf is also a budding writer.
â€œIâ€™m writing a nonfiction piece, unrelated to dogs or cats.â€
Kathyâ€™s keeping us all in non-canine, non-feline suspense, but she promises to give us all here at B-Town Blog Central the worldwide scoop come publishing time.
And as Bob Barker used to say, â€œDonâ€™t forget to scoop!â€ Uh, we mean…oh, never mind.
Open seven days a week.
