Mugging Attempt at Sunnyside and Sacramento?

As I was walking to my car this morning I saw that there were flyers stating that a group of four individuals had attempted a mugging near Sunnyside and Sacramento around 9pm last night. Does anyone know anything more about this? This is seriously concerning as I live very close by!

  • I am Callie's neighbor (thanks for sharing, Callie) and two guys approached me for change at the corner of Whipple & Sunnyside when I walked home around 11 pm a few Fridays ago. They seemed shady so I just said "Sorry, I don't have any" and kept going. Use your gut and keep it rolling.

Lost cat: Approx 10-year-old male short hair tabby

Hi,

My family's cat has been missing since some point on Saturday. Unfortunately we were out and about most of the weekend until late Sunday so he didn't have opportunity to come inside. He was last seen around Whipple-Albany and Sunnyside.

He's an extremely friendly male cat, brown-black tabby with black stripes. He has a distinguishing mole on his nose. He is known to approach strangers and purr and meow a lot, so I am wondering if a neighbor may have taken him in. He's also fairly skinny but overall in good health.

Thanks for any help.

    Ferris Roofing did an excellent job on our bungalow and has done many of our neighbors' roofs as well. Very professional, reasonable and courteous 773-583-8382

  • JZ Roofing replaced the roof on my house and garage as well as all of the gutters. They did an excellent job. Merrill, the sales guy, is a bit annoying but you certainly get a nice new roof without any hassels. Everything is guaranteed. Their quote was in the middle.

Is this your cat?

I found this cutie in the vicinity of Sunnyside & Drake approx. 5pm Sunday (10/19). He was following various people on the street and trying to enter apartment building in the area, meowing to go inside. No one knew who he might belong to.

Male tuxedo kitty, all black on top, white belly and paws. Seems quite young. See attached pic. Not micro-chipped and appears to be in excellent health. Very perplexed as to why this guy is not micro-chipped...

I found this cutie in the vicinity of Sunnyside & Drake approx. 5pm Sunday (10/19). He was following various people on the street and trying to enter apartment building in the area, meowing to go inside. No one knew who he might belong to.

Male tuxedo kitty, all black on top, white belly and paws. Seems quite young. See attached pic. Not micro-chipped and appears to be in excellent health. Very perplexed as to why this guy is not micro-chipped as he appears to be someone's loving pet.

Extremely well socialized with people, playful and not fearful at all. Did not appear to be an indoor/outdoor kitty as he did not seem familiar with cars, traffic or the outside world. Will be turning over to rescue group for proper adoption procedure if owners are not located by end of the week. He will be an extremely good find for someone looking to adopt a young male who is quite outgoing, well-behaved and friendly. Am re-posting this to various neighborhood sites, Chicago lost pet FB pages, etc.

If you believe this is your cat, please call #773-822-1700 and leave a message with call back number and email. You will be asked to provide proof of ownership and photos.

Thank you. - Heather
