rosa– yes, i lived at 18th and taraval, right next to the safeway. if your cat’s vet is the one that specializes in cats, i know where that is–though there is one right across from safeway too. i think the 711 is down between 25th and 30th or so (past the walgreens <img> ). mission street is pretty ghetto, especially after dark. taraval is much safer!
