Do any of my neighbors have a 'drop trap' I can borrow?

I am wondering if anyone has a drop trap I can borrow. I have tried to use my regular humane trap, but the feral cat I take care of has successfully eluded it, and he is now injured and needs medical care. They are a bit pricey, and just thought I'd see if a fellow neighbor has one I can borrow before dropping the $$. Thanks!

  • You might try PAWS.

  • They sell them on Amazon. I'm ordering one myself now for the ferals in the area in case I run into a situation and need it. Glad you brought this up and reminded me. I hope you find one soon and get your cat in for care.

LOST Black Cat Lawndale Ave. near Eugene Field Park

Our indoor black male cat, Gogo, escaped last night. No collar or chip. He is normally friendly and bold but might be scared. He has his claws. He is fairly large and slender. We are on Lawndale close to Eugene Field Park, which is north of Argyle.

  • The OP posted this cat has been found.

  • ECM

    Yes, and thank you, everyone for your concern and help! Happily we found Gogo in good shape hiding quite far down the alley - he had been out 2 nights. I bought a collar and had a tag engraved for him today and will continue to keep him inside as always, but he is a determined one and does try to escape. I doubt that he learned his lesson!

Missing cat near Albany and Irving Park

My cat Kozmo got out this afternoon near the corner of Albany and Irving Park. A neighbor said that he'd seen him wandering the alley just north of Irving; Kozmo isn't an outdoor cat, and I'm not sure he'd be able to find his way home on his own. Please let me know if you've seen him!

  • Christy T Albany Park

    Hi Ashley, I left you a private message with my neighbor's number this morning, just making sure you got it. Thanks.

  • Kozmo has indeed been found! I couldn't be happier, and am SO thankful for this awesome community. :D

Fire trucks and Power Loss

Anyone know exactly what happened tonight. Was at Rojo Gusano's on the patio, and we saw a police car turn around and fly past, which was shortly followed by a number of fire trucks headed in the same direction. After the second fire truck I heard a small boom coming from the direction they were headed in. Shortly after that all the light on the side side of Lawrence and at least a block in and a good number of blocks in each direction went dark. The lights eventually came back on, but I'm being my usual nosy self.

  • According to a post on nextdoor...House fire with injuries. There were fireworks involved

Doggy play date needed

My dog lily a female pit mix is used to playing with my other pup a terrier mix. Great with him. I'd really like her to get to know and play with other dogs. Shes kind of a nervous pup and protective which can sometimes seem/turn aggressive?but i think with the right introduction she could learn to to play with other dogs which i would really like for her. I'm hoping to find someone who will take the chance on us.

  • smartypants LifeLongCityGirl

    Rachwl, Im so sorry...I dont see how to message you!

  • You can email me at rachelvtoo@gmail.com. that goes for anyone else interested in a doggy play date

Dog Friends for my sweet Greyhound Please?

HELLO EVERYONE,
My sweet greyhound needs some friends to play with. She is best with medium sized dogs that are not aggressive or overly verbal. She is very, very relaxed for a puppy and has great manners in meeting other dogs.
Please message here if you have a friend for her!
Thanks So Much!

  • Aww what a cute face! Great that you are trying to socialize her! How about a dog park?

  • GB in AP In AP since 2009

    Hi, we have a greyhound too! He's pretty mellow and good with other dogs. PM me!
