When shelter employees arrived at Whisker City Animal Rescue on Tuesday morning in Shoreline, Washington, they found a cat had been stolen after its outdoor enclosure had been tampered with and broken into. April Brown, the founding director of Whisker City Cat Rescue, said the lock had been removed and Quixote, a pure Savannah had been stolen.  The cage had been securely screwed down and padlocked. The cat, a cross between a domestic and a wild African serval breed had been at the shelter for several months; no one had ever had any trouble with Quixote in the past.

At first April posted a message to the Facebook group to keep an eye out for the cat – possibly thinking someone may have stolen the cat because he was valuable, but when an employee noticed blood on the cat’s blanket they called police. When Brown first checked the dumpster outside, she didn’t see anything, but a short time later a coworker came running into the shelter screaming she had found Quixote’s lifeless body hidden under the garbage.

“Every bone looks like it’s broken in its body. Its eyes had been taken out. It’s horrible. It’s horrible. Its head is practically flat; it had been crushed,” Brown stated as reported by KomoNews.

According to the group’s Facebook page, the disturbing report stated:


“Stomped, beat, flung, crushed and banged a cat against the wall until it died. Quixote was brutally tortured for more than 15 minutes and then thrown into a dumpster. Killer wore a yellow disposable rain poncho with the words “Homeless needs homes but not in my neighborhood – Richmond Beach. Murder committed on September 19, 2017 at Whisker City Cat Rescue at 3AM. Please contact Sargeant Gabriel Morris at Shoreline Police. 206.510. 7657.”

A neighbor has come forward and said she heard loud noises at about 3:00 a.m. She thought it had been branches falling on her roof and stated the noise had gone on for nearly 15 minutes.

All of the cats in their outdoor enclosures have since been moved indoors at the Whisker City Cat Rescue; extra security cameras are scheduled to be installed. Anyone with information is asked to call the police. Help bring  justice to an innocent victim of some depraved monster.

    its just a shame you tempted the perverted criminal hate monger in the neighbor hood by displaying helpless animals seeking sanctuary out side. this man seems to not like homeless anything pets or humans. he should be easy to discover.
    go to 3 of the local I hate people, neo Nazi home town chapters. also the local chapter of the homeless needs homes but not in my neighborhood, find the organization leaders and you will find the opposing fraction. Are their any homeless peeps missing in the neighbor hood. he is a killer of the unclaimed. he is that evil.
    you better take care of this shoreline.
    look for the first name in all anti homeless local home chapters. he ll be the first name in all of the hate and anti immigrant and homeless complaints. this piss is mouthy on the internet. and is most likely known to the shelter and the locals. he is a local . hes that fearless.

    • Adrienne says:

      This shelter did not tempt this “thing” to do this. He would have done it and may have done it to others before and just not been caught. From you comments, it sounds like you have an idea who it is. If you live in the area call the police and provide them with whatever information you have.

    • Nadya Wall-Rossi says:

      Yes! Monsters and demons will always be with us, but I blame the shelter for exposing this helpless vulnerable Kitty two danger, torture and murder. Why were there no cameras on these outside cages? Why put animals outside anyway? This was absolutely preventable and disgraceful.

      • ZaCloud says:

        The shelter is probably overcrowded, as most are. They probably didn’t have enough indoor space for extra animals, and so they kind of leaked outside in an effort to kill less of them daily due to space shortages. Victim-blaming isn’t a righteous thing to do. The cages were even locked. They had no way of knowing that someone so depraved would come around.

        I sincerely hope you aren’t the kind of person who would blame a woman for getting raped because she dared to leave the house.

      • Dead inside says:

        I don’t think this world will ever know that satisfaction. Shit maniac brutally destroyed a rare beauty, and a witness did nothing, had she got out of bed maybe the killing could have been stopped and the police would have had better time to get that piece of usless shit, but it didn’t happen because the world fucking sucks, and we have failed ourselves and the innocent beauty that we have deprived and destroyed.

      • ellen cottone says:

        its simple math.
        the cat would not have been kidnapped and killed if he was safe inside.
        I do not approve of ungarded animals in outside enclosers. Many shelters are pit fight rescue and many out door shelters have been broken into and animals fall right back in the hands of abusers and never seen again. horrable.
        These animals must be behind closed doors at nite.
        As for me living close by , i do not i live in ny.
        as for knowing who piss face is….
        I would imagin it would be easy to find him with crossreferance. He is the local who speaks constantaly about how this counntry is no longer great and its because of imigrants and homeless.the demon shouts from a soap box and is dying for confrontation, a dramatic police stand off and his eventual convictioon so he can preach to the other sickos how he is in jail , how is is in jail because of New America.
        Washington i will trust you will make finding this man a priority. you will be killing many birds with one stone. Put someone on it. start with a list of creeps who have come in to the shelter. they know who he is and why.

      • ellen cottone says:

        dont be an ass zacloud.
        I resent the stupid rape comment.
        clearly locks mean nothing in an unprotected out side encloser at night.
        all shelter owners know out side enclosers all have a history of brake ins

      • ellen cottone says:

        dead inside.
        dont die out side..
        your the only one who called out pajamma lady. I feel the same way too.
        i know you and i could not,
        would not sleep thru that bizz. We pajammaed would have charged screamming with bat in one hand and cell phone in the other. but really your time will come. to make great changes in the life of an animal. keep alert to whats going on around you.
        There is an old saying.
        death cant happen ,
        if death can not come in the door. This is a revelation on how to conduct your life.
        live it.
        Now you are offically no longer, Dead inside.
        you are now
        “Protector inside”.

      You’re not the sharpest tool in the box, are you? Your hidden political agenda sickens me! Eff right off you cretin! You have nothing to contribute here! Nada, zilch, zero, nothing, nowt, eff all. Crawl back under your stone and hang your head in shame!

      • ellen cottone says:

        then you must be sick of your self shar.
        sure sounds like your sick of something.
        is it that the world is changing quicker then you can adjust.
        I thought so.

    • Joan Diamond says:

      Ellen: You are a creep. Stop blaming the victim. You just come across as someone with an ax to grind. The shelter is not responsible for the cat’s death, no more than you would be responsible if your parked and locked car was stolen and demolished by a thief. In a perfect world, there would be no cats kept on outdoor enclosures. In a perfect world, there would be no homeless pets. In a perfect world, there would be people who who would not find the need to rub salt in the wounds of people who try very hard to help homeless pets and have to deal with the pain of the horrible torture and death of one of their charges. Instead of being an armchair critic, go out and change things, adopt a few cats to help free up indoor space in the shelters. It is easy to say how you would do it better, so go out there and put your money where your very big mouth is, give money to a shelter to build more buildings so they can take more cats inside. Otherwise, you are just a horrible, loudmouthed, critic with a desparate need to be the undesputed authority, News flash, you just look heartless to me, and I daresay many others.

      • Mark says:

        “Stop blaming the victim”? The victim is the cat and no one is blaming him. I blame the shelter for it’s stupidity for leaving the cats outdoors. Even people who own cats should keep their cats indoors. After Quixote suffered a horrible death the shelter now keeps them in doors. Had they done this in the first place Quixote would be alive and well.

      • ellen cottone says:

        dont be afraid of the truth j.d,
        the truth will set you free.
        but after, try not to feel bad about it .

        one thing is for sure is no animals at this shelter will be staying in an out door encloser.
        so they know they dropped the ball by creating their own problems.
        Thats rite , suck it up. The Truth . Im just is stating the obvious.

        I point out the unemotional truth. at no time Do i blame, insult or antagonize .
        I speak the truth in the matter . im a bottom liner and im easy to understand.
        im user friendly.
        Agree with me or dont , but i always make perfect sense because i speak the truth,
        how can you not see i offer solution and am hopeful for quick change? the solution is often the simple one.

        your unkind words mean little to me.

        Your coming from a bad place j.d. I feel your deep guilt and helplessness because your tired from not doing anything that has any meaning in life.
        thats why people like me make you feel uncomfortable.

        I have a deep feeling the long to do, list you gave me was meant for you. to alleviate your inner frustration. get up and get busy j.d it will help you sleep better at night. and like your self a little better during the day.

        Oh and one More,
        It is a perfect world .
        dont let the hype fool you . for every miserable story that pisses us off enough to change the world a little bit for the better. were just looking for peace right?

        What is the price of freedom, of peace?
        Its constant diligence.

        This is the essence of the free world. we fight for good change.

  2. Gizmos Mommy says:

    This is beyond disgusting. The maggot POS that did this is so far beyond evil and sick, words aren’t sufficient to describe the organism. In any case, the world would be far better without a savage SOS like that running around loose.

  3. maxiemom says:

    The POS who did this doesn’t need to walk this earth any more. AT ALL. This is sickening.

    Sounds like something “Nature Proponent” or his demented ilk would do.

  4. Pamela Garlisch says:

    OMG that poor cat! Keep putting the word out, somebody knows something, these people do not keep quiet, they like to brag that they did this. Somebody knows something, that person needs to be wiped off the face of the earth and quickly! Does the camera show any face at all?

  5. Jill says:

    Praying this evil.sick.depraved . Piece of shit gets his due justice..head bashed. Bones broken. Beaten with a hammer I can go on and on.. deserves hell on earth right now for this atrocious act!!! Poor baby rip!

  6. Donna L Hawkins says:

    I can’t fathom this unprecedented horrific murder!! Yes follow this person’s comments and find this bastard! Please don’t leave them in outdoor enclosures when closed just not safe ! I’m heartsick!

  7. Adrienne says:

    Hope their cameras showed something outside and this “thing” will be caught soon and given to him what he did to this beautiful cat.

  8. Lin says:

    Omg, omg, omg! Can’t take this any more my furry friends being murders and tortured. WHY WHY? ANAMALS ARE SO BEAUTIFUL. I LOVE THEM SO VERY MUCH. EASE STOP HURTING MY FRIENDS!

  9. Barkley's Mom says:

    Why does someone do this? Someone knows who did this, and I hope they come forward. If they will torture a cat like this then humans will be next and it could be YOU!

  10. J. Martin says:

    WTF .. THIS PISSES ME OFF!! I hope the EVIL POS is caught! I don’t blame the shelter (that is just NUTS to blame them). I tell you what tho .. IF I ever caught this low life FUCKER … he/she better pray for divine intervention. Because I would show them NO MERCY! They would be begging me to end their suffering. I DON’T GIVE A FLAMING FLYING DOUBLE BARRELLED FUCK .. who this asshole is. I don’t care about their sex/age/religion or any of that horseshit. I don’t care what their reason/motive is .. they’d BE SORRY!!!!!

  11. Red says:

    Someone knows who the monster is that did this…..if you do not report them or turn them in….YOU ARE AS GUILTY AS THEY ARE!!! The monster who could do this to a poor animal needs a very hurtful, punishing visit from karma……
    KARMA…. FIND THIS MONSTER and put HIM or HER out of everyone’s misery!!!

  12. vicki hood says:

    Surely there are cameras. To borrow from a friend of mine — I volunteer to execute him. I would love to start a group called grammas with BB bats (baseball bats) for taking care of bad dudes like this. We have to stick close to this and prosecution to the max with no pansy judges or DAs.

  13. sandra bell says:

    Poor, exquisite, beautiful baby. I am heartsick at this horrific news. WHY???? What kind of hideous demon could do such a thing to an innocent, defenseless kitty? I pray this monster will be caught and locked away for the rest of his miserable life.

  14. Debbie says:

    Oh My God!!!!!! WHY…..find the sick animals that did this and PUNISH THEM PLEASE… slaps on the wrist, real punishment..this cat did nothing to deserve this!!!! The pain that that beautiful baby suffered….a sick person did this….oh how I wish that lady would have gotten up and turned on the light she might still be here…

  15. Robyn says:

    When will this cruelty ever end? The punishment is never severe enough to stop these poc, I really hope there is karma and that they get it dealt an eye for an eye, despicable!

  16. Nancy Raymond says:

    This ‘shelter’ has no one to blame but itself for leaving any animal outside after the shelter is closed – I don’t care how crowded it is – there is NO excuse for exposing this cat to those who want to do it harm – this maggot puke literally tortured this poor cat to death. I personally would like five minutes with this hunk of sewer slime – maybe this will teach Whisker rescue that ALL animals need to be inside and safe from the likes of vile monsters like him. He needs a massive dose of street justice. Cowardly bastard who would cry for Mommy if confronted by a human.

  17. Sharon says:

    Any & all people who hurt any animals does not deserve to live,as far as I’m concerned. I am SICK of helpless animals being mistreated, let alone really hurt or tortured! I honestly believe that anyone so cruel is not really deserving to live. They are unfeeling & will never do anything to deserve to live! Jail or prison is the place they must go! I prefer they hang! They are TRASH, ABSOLUTE GARBAGE STINKING UP THE WORLD!!!

    • ellen cottone says:

      your a good person.
      take the $200 to 3 of your most saddest dog shelters by treats and star war blankets, go to kohls asl for a deal , tell them what your doing and also ask them for donations ask to speak to the store manager. his wife rescues dogs form kill shelters.
      then take $100 and go hog wild and buy lotto and scratches. when you win big. get a small jet , learn to fly and feed and
      save all the shelters and turn them into no kill shelters and hire trainers instead of euth. techs and train them for jobs.
      Do it. today is your lucky day

    • tina says:

      I noticed that the fund reached it’s goal of $25,000. My concerns are if DNA is found what good does it do? DNA is not collected from animal abusers which obviously this person is. Surely they could use most of the money as a reward for finding this POS by posting everywhere for all to see.

      • ellen cottone says:

        I bet the cat scratched the hell out of him, check the area for dried blood on anything. dna testing is cheep as hell now thy need a drop.
        surprise, he has a police record. they will get him. let the police do their work. im sure their pissed and will follow thru. every one who wants to contribute dont for get your local shelters. their poor as church mice.
