Found Lost Kitten / Cat

This little kitten showed up on our porch this morning. If anyone knows who this cat belongs to please contact me.

  • Brian Thompson East Village resident; Attorney and Realtor

    You might take him to PAWS at Clybourn and Racine, a no-kill animal shelter, if you can't keep him and nobody claims him.

  • If you can grab her, get her scanned for a microchip. Paws does not take in cats or dogs, they go through animal care and control etc. The other person who posted that she was on their porch said she meowed and showed her belly which makes me think she...

    If you can grab her, get her scanned for a microchip. Paws does not take in cats or dogs, they go through animal care and control etc. The other person who posted that she was on their porch said she meowed and showed her belly which makes me think she may not be spayed, is in heat and is probably a stray. You might consider calling Treehouse and seeing what they can recommend doing. If you are willing to take on the responsibility of getting her spayed (feral cats will be spayed for free but you will have to catch her, bring her over there and pick her up) that would be awesome as chances are she will get pregnant very soon if she is a stray. You can do a catch and release so you wont have to find a home for her if that is something you cant do. Just getting her spayed would be huge.

Yet another greystone being knocked down for condos

I have serious anger towards people like this. You are ruining the beauty of our city.

  • @Farid R - The former. Appeal was denied twice despite a long list of comps.

  • unfortunately it will have to double again to even attempt to pay our liabilities. People here won't cut even $1

Lost dog?

At 8:15am I saw a brown dog(maybe a boxer?) in a red harness running east on the north sidewalk along Augusta, just west of noble. I didn't see a walker anywhere.

Found keys

I found a set of keys on LeMoyne and Oakley ish. There are a lot of cards on them including WPAC and Corepower yoga. I am going to call both to see if they can locate whose keys they are. There is another identifying keychain so let me know if you think they are yours.

  • Dropped then off at WPAC. They said they will call the the person and put it in their lost and found. :)

  • Very nice of you! Someone will be very happy :)

Body Shop Reco

Does anyone have a cost effective and good car body shop in/around Noble Square/East Village? Looking to get some light damage fixed. I don't mind chains, just prefer going with a local business when I can!
Thanks

  • Karen noble square resident

    Thank you!

Stolen packages?

Over the past several weeks I have had several packages that were marked as delivered disappear off my front porch, most frequently on Fridays. Has anyone else had anything go missing? I have lived here since April 2013 and haven't had any issues until this spring. At first I suspected that the packages were being delivered to the wrong apartment because my front door is set back a bit behind a (non-locking) gate so it would look sketchy if someone was going through the gate and taking things. I am installing a dropcam with fake packages Monday to see what is going on but was just wondering if anyone else has had things go missing.

  • Yep, we live on Damen and Iowa ish and had a package go missing about a week ago. Agreed that your best bet is to have them delivered to your work (which sucks, but it's better than risking it).

  • FedEx store will hold packages for free, and there's a UPS store at Cali/Armitage that will hold packages as well (for a small fee I think).

Masonry

Does anyone know the name of the masonry contractor that constructed several brick walls around exterior stairs about a month ago on WABANSIA (2200 West- I think)? We'd like to do a similar project.

  • I don't know that project, but we used AAA Masonary for tuckpointing and another project. Robert (the owner) is super knowledgeable and they do fantastic work. I would recommend them for any brick work

  • Strong Pritzker school mom

    Thank you for the recommendation

Greystone on Damen Almost Gone

Divvyed past this building yesterday (Sunday). Most likely the rest of it will be torn down soon. There was a thread about it a few weeks or months back.

  • Alisa DNAinfoCHI Wicker Park/Bucktown/WestTown reporter

    True Buster. But this old greystone was surrounded by retail. A wheelchair couldn't access it because there are steps. It is weird to see the greystone gone.

  • Michael Bucktown Resident

    Glad to see its ugly sister to the south has been taken down too. Both were major eyesores.

Cafe called Bru takes the palce of Ready Coffee

Does anyone know the story on what happened to Ready Coffee and why there is now a new coffee shop taking it's place called Bru?

  • @joselito, thank for the paid advertisement. To call Filter low end and second wave, though no my spot of coffee since their move down the road, shows a lack of history of the area. Gallery is more of coffice and i appreciate i can have my coffee and work if i need to.

  • Joselito I write things and people pay me for it.

    @bill I'm not sure how that's an advertisement as I was giving a run down of most coffee places in the area and what coffee niches they server. Also being called "second wave" isn't an insult - I suggest you look up exactly what second and third wave coffee is...

    @bill I'm not sure how that's an advertisement as I was giving a run down of most coffee places in the area and what coffee niches they server. Also being called "second wave" isn't an insult - I suggest you look up exactly what second and third wave coffee is (it has nothing to do with how long you've been in the area). Finally, I never called Filter "low end" - I said it caters to the people who want Starbucks/Caribou chains on the low end of things, i.e. people that just want coffee and don't care about all the craziness of what goes on when you start getting really interested in coffee beans, and specifically said they ALSO match Buzz and The Wormhole on the high end. And ironically, you mention Gallery as a "coffice", which I also indicated Filter and GC are geared to being third spaces (again, another aspect of being second wave).

    Finally, I do know the history of coffee in the area, as I used to be a regular at Urbis Orbis. But thanks for your snark.
