This beautiful, unique looking feline decided a couple of weeks ago to take up residence under Jim Schmitt's garden shed.

Schmitt lives in the area of Bank and Ross streets in the City of Batavia. He has two cats already and can't keep this foundling.

He writes "As you can seen he (she?) is very beautiful and most likely not just a stray. He looks to be part Siamese and has blue eyes and four white 'boots.' "

If you are the owner or know who is, please contact Jim at 343-5707.

ALL POINTS BULLETIN --

She's a blond chihuahua mix with longer hair.

She was lost last night, but has been seen twice today on Ross Street (near Bank).

This intact (unneutered) male beagle was found July 8 on Wortendyke Road in the vicinity of Bontrager's Auction, Town of Batavia. He was taken to the Genesee County Animal Shelter and a worker confirmed this afternoon that he's still there, waiting for his owner(s) to claim him.

If you can help reunite this friendly boy with his family, please contact the shelter at 343-6410 or email the volunteers who help out there at:  [email protected]

The shelter is located at 3841 W. Main Street Road, Batavia.

This little black and white cutie was found wandering on Jackson Street in the city this afternoon and is now en route to the county animal shelter.

He doesn't have tags. We don't know if he's a French bulldog or a pug.

"These two Great Danes are lost and hanging out in Alexander on Gillate (Road) next to the steam show grounds," according to reader Michele Czekala, who contacted us late this morning.

UPDATE 7:48 p.m.: About 15 minutes ago, an animal control officer was dispatched to 10273 Gillate Road in Alexander to pick up two loose, but friendly Great Danes from the yard. They will be taken to the Genesee County Animal Shelter so their owner(s), hopefully, can retrieve them.

Russ Marchese took this cat to the Animal Shelter after finding it near the railroad tracks on Wortendyke Road, Batavia.

FOUND: A neutured, declawed senior cat "in not that great shape" that is 99.5-percent black -- he sports a few white hairs on his belly. No collar or microchip.

"He's an old guy; his eyes are watery. He's in pretty rough shape," says Wendy, who is spreading the news of the "Old Tom" in hopes that maybe he somehow got out of his home and his owner is looking for him.

Old Tom was found at a stranger's residence on South Main Street near River Street in Batavia on Friday and was taken to the Genesee County Animal Shelter. A volunteer promises to send us a photo of him tomorrow to post with this announcement.

If his family is not found, maybe a senior would like another senior to bond with and will adopt him, n'est-ce pas

If you can help, please call 343-6410.

UPDATE Monday, Oct. 31, 9 p.m.: So, it turns out, this is "Fatty," and Fatty is 17 years old, has always been an indoor/outdoor cat, and belongs to Mark Fanara. Mark will go to the shelter tomorrow at 1 p.m. to reunite with Fatty.

Is your BFF missing?

Brian Kemp, of the Batavia business T-Shirts Etc., wrote to us about this black and white cutie:

The shop is located at 37 Center St. Phone is 345-1993. 

At 3:37 p.m., we received this email:

The dog has been picked up by his mommy. Thank you so much for your help!

Have a great day!

Yesterday morning one of Meghan Tiede's kids accidentally let out one of their indoor cats, "Tiger."

"She is a very special cat to our family and she hasn't returned home. We are all pretty upset and miss her very much," Tiede writes in an e-mail.

Tiger was last seen on June 15th at about 8 a.m. in Seven Springs Country Club on Seven Springs Road in Batavia. The family lives close to Route 5. Attached is a photo of her. I'm hoping someone may have contacted you about a cat that was found.

If you see Tiger, e-mail Tiede at:   [email protected] or call her cell phone at (716) 560-3427.

UPDATED 11 a.m.: Friday, June 24: Meghan just wrote to us, saying: "I just wanted to give you an update about our missing cat Tiger. She was returned to us last night. Thank you so much for helping us get the word out that she was missing. We are so greatful for all your help and for the readers help in finding her. We truly missed her and are very happy she returned home."
Thank you
Meghan

Submitted photo of little lost Akira. 

This is a photo of "Akira," a small Japanese breed of hunting dog called shibu inu. She disappearred from her home on Albion Road in Oakfield on Saturday. The family and especially the grandchildren are heartbroken.

Due to skin allergies, she was not wearing a collar at the time she disappeared.

Her loved ones say she resembles a fox in size and appearance. Sometimes the shibu inu is translated as "little brushwood dog." Adult females typically weigh about 18 pounds. It is an agile, independent breed. The Japanese breed standard says it exhibits: "A spirited boldness, a good nature, and an unaffected forthrightness, which together yield dignity and natural beauty."

In the photo above, Akira is waiting patiently for her master to get in the car and take her on an adventure -- traveling anyplace in the car is an adventure. Here she's thinking "C'mon, what's the hold up? I can't believe you can't find your sunglasses. You just had them on your head two minutes ago. ARGH! People!"

Anyone with information is asked to call Matt at (585) 704-9400.

The employees at Castilone Chrysler Dodge and Jeep took in these two handsome canines they found wandering and lost near the dealership.

"They are both very nice and want to go home," Sara Stockwell said.

She's hoping the owner will claim the dogs by 5:30 p.m.

UPDATE 4:30 p.m.: The owner has picked up the dogs.

Phoenix is missing somewhere in the Brookville and Hunn roads area of Alexander. She was last seen at home about 5:30 p.m. but got out of the house somehow.

She is sick. She has breast cancer and it is spreading to her lungs. She needs medication daily.

Phoenix is 9 years old, an English setter that is black and white. She is very friendly.

If found, contact Edna at (585) 813-2997.

Here's an APB from reader Marilyn Dickinson:

This cute kitten was found at 8 p.m. on Friday in the Pearl Street neighborhood directly across from Williams Park. It was scared and hungry. Neighbors said they first saw the kitten a few days before.

She is totally jet black with no markings (a Bombay perhaps?) and looks to be 6 to 8 months old. She is wearing a studded collar with pink bell and a flea collar. Extremely friendly, likes being indoors, and continues to purr, purr, purr.

I called the animal shelter to learn if an owner called asking about it but no one had. We will be taking the kitten to the shelter when they have room.

If you're the owner or you know who is, please call Marilyn Dickinson 585-356-9398 (cell) ASAP.

UPDATE Nov. 20: From Marilyn Dickinson on Nov. 18: "Thanks to those who shared my post on FB and to The Batavian <https://www.facebook.com/thebatavian> for the APB on the kitten. I received a call from the owner a few minutes ago who saw the pic on The Batavian. I returned 'Patches,' along with the supplies and food we purchased, to the family who lost her last weekend. The kitten crossed Main Street traffic..perhaps her name should be "Lucky!" They were grateful and the children so happy to get her back home...before my husband kept her - awww!

An all-black, short-haired male cat has gone missing since Oct. 10 from Darien Lake Theme Park and Campground. It is neutered and microchipped and very much missed by his family and his BFF -- the family dog. He answers to "Phoenix" or "FeeFee."

There is a reward if found. Please call Kathy at 716-472-8968.

A reader contacted us about a lost dog last night. It's a young, black male Labrador retriever and it was found on Marsh Road in East Bethany around 6:30-7 p.m.

"He is a beautiful dog," says the reader, "clean, well groomed and extremely well behaved. I would guess he's around a year and a half old."

He stayed with the finders a couple of hours until an officer came and took him to the Genesee County Animal Shelter on West Main Street Road in the Town of Batavia.

(We have pictures of the pup, which I'm having trouble posting, but they should be up later today. It shows him wearing a brown leather collar without tags.)
