    Someone is looking for a home for two little kittens, born May 11 (brother & sister). They are already litter trained. And, I think, Tree House will offer reasonable neutering rates. Thank you for helping. I am just a go-between.

  • Hope that you find a good kitty-home for them. Tree House does a really good job with kitten adoptions, so perhaps the "someone" might try Tree House. My brood over the years has partially included:

    Hope that you find a good kitty-home for them. Tree House does a really good job with kitten adoptions, so perhaps the "someone" might try Tree House. My brood over the years has partially included:

    2 orphans from my vet's clinic (Cody Renee and Max Allen)
    2 from CACC (city shelter) (Dinah Marie and Peter Timothy)
    1 brought to me as a kitten (by neighborhood kids who knew that the "human" abused the litter of four kittens - they stole every kitten - which were left outside - and found good homes) (Skunk Elizabeth)
    1 from that cat's own kitten litter of 7 (all were adopted and cat-mom was spayed) (Pansy Bertha...hey! she looked like a "Bertha")
    2 from Anti-Cruelty (Sheba Elizabeth and Bruno Peter) and
    1 poor little thing about one year-old who showed up on my doorstep in Columbus when it was a frigid winter. She must have seen my Skunk and Pansy looking out of the window. Some cruel person had cut off her tail and crushed her right front paw and for months she was terrified of males. She did adjust to my men friends. She lived until age 20, when due to her failing health and failing organs, I had her euthanized. (she was Pookie Madelyn - stop laughing!)

    Three of my cat-kids are buried in a friend's back yard along his flower garden fence. Yup, that's my cat cemetery, guaranteed for my life.

    Why do they have two names? Because they're short people with four legs and fur, that's why - because they're spoiled, live inside, have the best collection of toys scattered around my place, take over my big chairs, and like to take hallway-walks to my neighbors' in-building apartments!

    Happy Saturday! Enjoy...it's nice outside.

Last Night / Early this Morning.

Does anyone know what happened on or around Jonquil Terrace July 30th or early July 31 ? I had a friend call me and said there was fighting and then later gun shots.

Month to Month condo rentals?

Hello neighbors! I'm a condo owner in Edgewater and our building is about to undergo a major construction project, and I need to move out of my unit for the duration of the project (2-3 months), starting in late August/by Sep 1.

I know there was a post a couple weeks ago about short-term rentals with some great suggestions, but, unfortunately none of them are a viable solution for us.

I'm curious whether any neighbors are aware of a condo association on the north side which has taken possession of a foreclosed 2 bedroom unit that allows dogs (35 lb) that would be interested in renting month-to-month to recoup some of their lost assessments before the bank sells the unit.

  • You might also want to get in touch with a real estate agent or one of the apartment finder firms, there might be a sub-lease that you could do for a couple of months.

  • jenna! love is the law

    VRBO.com might be worth a look.

  • ..and the doggies get a reduced rate from Revive?

    Actually, I was a regular patron at Revive until a year ago, with a terrific massage therapist, however, he lived in Naperville and the drive was silly. It's a very nice place.

  • OK, folks...go watch the super-doggies. The small ones are earnest in their efforts and the big breeds are impressive.

unleashed dogs

I am a recent dog owner and live in Edgewater. Each night I take my dog for a walk up to the grassy area near Ardmore/Hollywood beach. Inevitably, there has been an unleashed dog (or several dogs), who comes up and starts playing/jumping on my dog. And the vast majority of the time, the dogs do not respond to their owner's call...
Does anyone else experience this problem?
It makes it really difficult to train my dog when random unleashed dogs are abound. There is a dog beach about .5 miles away where dogs are allowed to be unleashed--why not go there?

  • The dog beach you speak of has eroded away. This may account for more unleashed dogs in unauthorized places. Please email the alderman about the dog beach! This may help remedy your situation. As a dog owner, it is disappointing that the dogs always have to be on leash until the beach is fixed.

  • Catherine Animal Care Giver and Personal Organizer

    If you found unleashed dogs every time you go, why not take your dog at a different time or to a different location?

    I keep my dog leashed 99% of the time, because he doesn't always get along with other dogs, so I'm also annoyed with dog owners who assume...

    If you found unleashed dogs every time you go, why not take your dog at a different time or to a different location?

    I keep my dog leashed 99% of the time, because he doesn't always get along with other dogs, so I'm also annoyed with dog owners who assume that just because their dog is friendly, nothing bad will happen. The best I can do is avoid where there's likely to be unleashed dogs, and if an owner insists on letting their dog approach mine, I verbally warn them to keep their dog away. I've learned that non-verbal signals, like shortening my dog's leash or even walking away aren't enough of a warning for some people.

Rogers Park Firehouse Proposals Include Homes, Churches, Yoga Studios

A vacant firehouse in Edgewater, at 5714 N. Ridge Ave., is also up to sale. A Chicago landmark, the firehouse was built in 1928 and trimmed in terra cotta.

This article has 3 other Chicago locations (Show)

The city-owned structure at 1723 W. Greenleaf Ave. was put on the market earlier this year alongside 10 other firehouses across the city.

The Recyclery Collective, a nonprofit bike shop at 7628 N. Paulina St., pulled their offer of $1, said shop program director Jesse Miller.

Other notable bidders include Rogers Park's Hare Krishna temple, North Side Community Resources and Amistad Cristiana Chicago, a church on Ravenswood Avenue near Greenleaf Avenue.

Burning smell / smoke near Bryn Mawr and Ravenswood

Smoke and smells are so thick/strong, we had to shut off fans and AC. Been going on since before 11 am.
Visible smoke north of us (we are on Gregory). Not leaving house to investigate, but would love to know if anyone has had news on this.

  • Wow, rogerparker, make assumptions ever? I'm disgusted that you'd take the time out to post something not just unhelpful, but downright insulting, on what is supposed to be a community-building and neighbor-helping-neighbor website. I hope you never suffer from chronic respiratory illness or are homebound caring for a relative and looking to neighbors for assistance.
    Jim, thanks for offering an actual suggestion. Any idea if this will be a recurring weekend event?

  • W60660 Neighborhood blogger and activist

    Thank you, Johanna... it is always nice to know what is going on in and around the Andersonville & Edgewater communities. This blog serves and the eyes and ears of our neighborhood. Comments like what "rogerparker" post are nothing more than a cry of desperation for attention. Ignore him. Thanks for sharing!
