National Building Museum Photography Display

One of our volunteers sent the following picture (of a photograph) that was recently hanging in the National Building Museum's exhibition Investigating Where We Live.  We are members of the museum, and often take our daughter their (she loves the Building Zone and Lego Architecture), but we never saw this ourselves.

That is one of our very first flyers, posted in the long stretch of 70+ days when we had no sightings of her and didn't know she had found a way to survive.  We posted hundreds of these in the alleys of Adams Morgan, Mt. Pleasant, Cleveland Park, etc., thinking she might be hiding and eating back there somewhere.  

So sad to think she's still out there, just beyond our reach.

On a more positive note, this volunteer and another were scouting a neighborhood in which we hope to put up a feeding station/camera, and they knocked at a house to talk to the owners . . . and one of the owners turned out to be someone who Jeff went to school with in California.  It feels a little like the Universe is trying to give us a break here, and we're so grateful.


  1. We remain hopeful that Sass will come home to her family. We know she's there - and w/in a very specific radius! Keep the faith, ya'll. The Universe knows :)

  2. Thinking about you and Sass often and praying you will get to hold her soon.

  3. Thinking of Sass and keeping the faith :)

  4. Thinking of Sassafras as always. I just don't understand how she can't get caught.
