Atticus is Found!


After a more than week’s long search, Atticus the cat has been reunited with his owner Lizzy Land. Lizzy spent several days hanging posters, posting to social media and even advertising in the Rockaway Times to find her beloved furry friend who went missing from Beach 135th Street on July 3.

We’re thrilled to report a happy ending for Lizzy and Atticus. According to Land, someone from Beach 145th Street called to say they had Atticus and she got her cat back on Tuesday, July 14. “We cannot tell you how happy and how relieved we are. Thank you endlessly for all of your help, your shares and prayers, and kind words, calls and texts. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Our boy is home,” she said. The news was shared on Facebook page Friends of Rockaway Beach, and within 12 hours, the post was “liked” more than 1,300 times and flooded with comments of joy over the good news.
