Beautiful Tabby cat looking for forever home

I came across this kitty and have been unable to find her home. Unfortunately we can't keep her as we already are at our furry animal max with 2 cats and 2 dogs. So, we are looking for the perfect home for her.

She is 1 or 2 YO. Very friendly and playful. Gets along with other cats, kids, litter trained, spayed,up to date on vaccinations. She is just in needof a loving home.

  • I can't figure out how to message you but I might be interested in her! I just have a few questions. Want to send me a message or email? Thanks!

  • AmandaB homeowner, animal lover & real estate agent!

    @fawn - I messaged you with my contact info. Happy to chat or coordinate a meet and greet!

Tree cutting at 3:30 a.m

City came out and chopped trees only infront of my neighbor Rich's house. The trees were not in an urgent need of cutting either.Now you know where your tax money is going.political favors

  • Does he have a tacky Cubs logo in his backyard?

  • Considering that no one here knows who this "Rich" guy is it seems very unlikely that anyone here is going to change their opinion of him. And if he is so well connected and gets whatever he wants, except for your house and building on a double lot, then why...

    Considering that no one here knows who this "Rich" guy is it seems very unlikely that anyone here is going to change their opinion of him. And if he is so well connected and gets whatever he wants, except for your house and building on a double lot, then why doesn't he just get the city to condemn your property so he can buy it and get it that way? It does seem odd to me that you're the one telling us a fantastic story about your neighbor and you get all in a tizzy when we no one believes you.

    I'm assuming I'll be able to see the video in the morning, if not it didn't actually happen.

Kitty found in alley that needs forever home. Can anyone help, I'm highly allergic! :(

Hello friends, we've found an adorable kitty that needs a home asap. If anyone can help please contact me here. I have year round allergies as it is so the kitty is really effecting me horribly and needs to go asap.
We've had issues with a feral female cat in our alley who is constantly having babies that we don't know what to do with. I wish the city would come out, catch and fix her so this would stop.
The kitty is currently being bottle fed, is fully black in color and seems to be in overall good health.
Thanks in advance, Carla :)

  • As far as the Feral Cat--there is a Face Book page called "Tree House Community Cats" (TH has a few pages so make sure it is the Community Cats one) . The people on the page all care for feral cats and most do TNR. Try posting and there giving...

    As far as the Feral Cat--there is a Face Book page called "Tree House Community Cats" (TH has a few pages so make sure it is the Community Cats one) . The people on the page all care for feral cats and most do TNR. Try posting and there giving them your general area and hopefully someone can help. I am guessing you asked the nice Vet if she knows anyone who does TNR? If by chance you cant get on FB email erica@pawschicago.org and see if she can help. (I belive she runs the Community cat page) Thanks for caring

  • Carla Mom to three, Grandmom to one

    Carol stopped by and intends to help with a cage or two when she has the time. her husband was actually in the hospital so when things slow down a bit for her I hope we can get some traps set and start catching and fixin these alley cats.

La Pane is gone

Not sure if anyone else noticed but La Pane on Irving Park has closed and a for sale sign is in the window. Sad. But I couldn't see how they could keep going. I always thought it was weird that they opened at 11AM. I would have thought they would do better as breakfast and lunch place.

Found White Cat in the Irving Park Neighborhood

I have been seeing a white cat with green eyes in the Irving Park neighborhood, in the area surrounding Independence Park (between Hamlin Ave, Byron St, and Irving Park Rd). He/she is very friendly. Before I rent the Tree House humane traps to take him in and get him neutered, I thought of posting here in case this cat is not tray. If he/she belongs to you or you know whose it is, please let me know. I would like to get him a home before the cold weather arrives. If you are interested in keeping him, let me know too. Thanks!

  • Yes, if you could please ask your neighbors, that would be great. Is there a way to send a private message via this website?

  • Jennifer, could you meet me in the neighborhood sometime this week so that we can talk and I learn where he usually goes, etc.? If I am going to get a trap from the Tree House, I need to figure out where to set it. I would appreciate if you could meet me for a few minutes. I am back from work a around 5:00-5:15.

Police Activity Spaulding Just South of Irving Park

Spaulding is blocked off right now, and a few homes are taped off. Seem to be a number of officers. Anyone know what happened?

  • Just saw this on Mell's Facebook: Community Safety Update: Homicide, 8/31
    The Commander has shared with us that police are investigating a homicide that occurred on the 3900 block of N. Spaulding earlier today (8/31) around 11am.
    The victim, who was DOA, appears to have been killed by blunt force to the head, appears to have known his assailant. This incident appears to be personal in nature, not a gang-related incident.
    Anyone with information about this or other incidents of crime should contact 911 immediately.
