From Medlock Area Neighborhood Association: "My family is asking for you to be on the lookout for our domestic short hair cat. Tweek is a 10 year old large orange tabby male cat who has been missing since Saturday, July 27. He lives on Brengare Drive and has a collar. He loves for people to give him pets, so he goes door to door to get them. He usually is home for meals but we have not seen him. Please call Aimee at 404 931 9376 (same number on his collar).

A Desmond Drive resident saw what looked like a coyote crossing the street from Melton Park one morning earlier this week. He followed it in his car up Park Lane to Densley before losing sight of it. He's pretty sure it was a coyote. The consensus seems to be that coyotes very rarely pose a danger to humans; they mostly eat rodents; and they are virtually ineradicable. So the standard advisory is to keep small pets (and their food) inside.

From Wardell Castles via the Clairemont Great Lakes Neighborhood Association: Neighbors, If you've watched the local news recently, you know there has been significant progress regarding the DeKalb Animal Shelter: 1) As of July 1, LifeLine Animal Project is in charge of the day to day operation of the Shelter. 2) DeKalb County has approved the construction of a new state-of-the-art humane Adoption Center near Peachtree-DeKalb Airport to be completed March 2015.
