  • Just adopted from Treehouse. Great experience and great cat :)

  • Yay! Now, go do the Stray Cat Strut. I would (I did it last year), but I messed up my knee last weekend and walking 5K won't help! I drop off extra food there regularly. I have three furballs, and occasionally they're...um...fussy. Tree House gets the food at which they turn up their little noses.

    RIP gas stations (Google Maps) The owner of a gas station in Wicker Park says the time has come for him to raze his gas station and make way for something more useful to the neighborhood-like a hotel. It turns out the neighborhood's bicycle-riding residents, fueled by booze and tacos instead of gasoline haven't been good for business.
