We have a ray of sunshine for you on this rainy Wednesday: 🌞The most recent Crosspointe sighting was CONFIRMED by our tracker team to be Bogey! It appears that from Crosspointe, Bogey traveled through the streets of several neighborhoods in Newington Forest, walking right in front of many townhouses in the neighborhoods along Southrun Road. Our track ended near the Newington Forest Community Center. We do not know if she continued on toward Newington or turned and went back toward Crosspointe or South Run. For those with RING cameras, please check footage for Bogey. Report any possible sightings to Annie at 703-596-9296. If you live near this area and know of people NOT on social media, please share Annie's phone number/Bogey's picture with them. As always, we appreciate your keeping watch for her, checking under decks, in sheds...good news is that she is still out there and in #FairfaxCounty. You, our followers are our lifeline and we can't thank you enough for still holding on with us.

Please spread the word so we can find this pet's family! FOUND on December 15, 2020 in Burke, VA 22015 near Burke Nursery and Garden Centre 9401 Burke Rd Burke, VA 22015

Message from Finder: Hello,
This big sweet cat has been sleeping outside at the Garden center for about a month.
We all left him alone because we wanted to make sure that if he has an owner that he goes back, however no one has been looking for him and he doesn't leave. He was shabby, not neutered and the vet said he didn't have shots. He may be feral. A little shy but sweet. Because of the dropping Temps and the snow storm, the owner of the nursery decided to get him checked for a chip and then bring him inside to keep him safe. If this is your cat, please don't hesitate to contact us. He will be well taken care of being the King of the Garden Center if not claimed. All the best.

Description: Chunky male been around the garden center for about a month. White paws. Black body. White chest and stomach. Dark eyes. White sliver in forehead. Not neutered. Around a year old. Friendly. Brough him into the nursery because snow storm headed this way. Got him checked out by Village Vet Clinic in Burke.
