Anyone missing this bird?

I think it's a Guinea. It showed up in our yard this morning.

We are near Diversey and Western.

  • Its a Guinea Fowl and I saw it in the area of Diversey between Maplewood over to Talman. No one around here knew where it came from either. It was even up on top of one of the garages for a while. Beautiful bird though. It wouldn't let us get near it. I hope someone was able to get it somewhere safe.

  • So strange

Found young grey cat

Cat looks like a Russian blue with a Siamese body probably about a year old and does not appear to have front claws. Found in the 1700 block of n Washtenaw. He she was super friendly on the sidewalk but now is a little spooked being indoors will post photo tomorrow

  • Btw, my profile photo is NOT the cat we found

  • Cat Wrangler happy Humboldt Park resident

    Did you take her to a vet to have her scanned for a microchip? I think any vet will do it for free or, if it's after hours, go to MedVet on Clybourn. They will also scan for free.

  • Hi CW,
    Thanks for the note, not all people know about that. Sadly no chip :( Posting again and on CL and FB

Lost cat at palmer and sawyer

his name is knight. he is a domestic short hair. grey and white. he has a brown spot below his nose that looks like a mustache. short legs. last seen august 12th at 1am in the apartment. woke up to him missing.

  • They actually make pet screen that is more durable!

  • So glad he's home. And it's hard when they break through a screen or something. They sure can be determined when they want to get out.

    So interesting about him finding his way back in the quiet of the morning by scent. I will have to remember that. I never...

    So interesting about him finding his way back in the quiet of the morning by scent. I will have to remember that. I never let mine out either, except for supervised outings in the yard, but just this morning he scooted past me out the open door when my back was turned, and I just barely saw the wisp of his tail in my peripheral vision as he rounded the outside door. Otherwise I would have locked the door behind me and thought he was inside. (Outside, he proceeded to run from me in a big circuit around the yard every time I tried to shoo him toward the door.... Lots of fun in the morning hours...) :-) So even with your best efforts they can sometimes get out. So, so glad you found him.

Gunshots or fireworks?

I live on the 2500 block of North Francisco. I thought I was listening to fireworks, but then shifted gears and wondered if I heard gunshots? A neighbor, who lives on the corner of Richmond and Logan, texted me and asked the same thing. Did anyone hear this? Either way, I called the police to ask them to check out the area. Really hoping that it was fireworks. But these days, you cannot be too safe.

  • Abigail Burns Ridenour Graphic Designer new to Logan Square

    It was definitely fireworks. I was freaked out too. Heard them very close at Sacramento and Willets Ct. We thought someone was being shot in our back alley. Got up and saw fireworks and the dust from them settling. What an inconsiderate thing to do for the sake of some twinkly lights.

  • Thanks to all of you for responding. Relieved to know that we all heard fireworks. It's so disappointing to be so worried about guns all the time. Things need to get better. For all of us. Thanks again.

Found a dog

Found this little guy on Belden. Anybody recognize him?

  • What should I do with him? I'd rather not keep him overnight.

  • Put signs up and post on lost dogs Illinois. That seems to be the most common way people get their dogs back.

  • Nevermind, he booked, he's out there on his own again. It was great while it lasted. :)

Wifi thread

I live on Palmer right between Central Park and Lawndale. I finally had enough of AT&T's awful service. It kept going down and I always had to restart the modem. I switched to Comcast for just Internet and not only did my bill go down to $19.99 a month but It is way faster. I go a modem from Amazon and used a old 5g router since I have hardwood floors. Anyone near me if your fed up with AT&T switch to Comcast for Internet you won't be disappointed.

  • Melissa Stanley local realtor and business onwer

    Oops

  • I called Comcast about twice a month for two years before I finally cut the cord. I've been with AT&T for only two months, but haven't had a single issue. We'll see how long that lasts. But Comcast- now that I've cut both internet and cable from them, I'm a lot happier now and saving a ton of money overall. F COMCAST.

Com-Ed power outage notice

Did anyone else receive the notice for a power outage scheduled for next Thursday? The notice said 8 hours, which seems excessive, especially since we're supposed to have more hot weather next week. We have a new born and breast milk stored in the freezer, among other perishables. Research indicates food is only good for 4 hours in a fridge / freezer without power, less if you're opening the doors. Any way we can get this shortened?

Found Keys underneath the Blue line on Moffat

On my morning dog walk, I found a broken large key ring with 2 keys (they look like standard front door keys). Keys were found on the sidewalk on Moffat St. (Between Milwaukee & Winnebago) basically underneath where the blue line passes overhead.

Key ring has a small charm/tag of an animal - non profit fund.

Message me if lost your keys

Movies in the park

Does anyone know if dogs are allowed at movies in the park??

  • Cristina Lara Mom of 3 in Logan Square

    I see those signs when I enter the playground M&M00, I assumed they were for the entire park not just the actual playground.

  • I always used to bring my old girl. She was quiet and just sat nicely. She was 100 lbs but nobody ever minded. :)

Curb Repainted

Anyone know how to request the curb near the fire hydrant to be repainted yellow? The one outside our place on Campbell is very faded and needs repainted so that's it's more visible. Thanks for any help

  • that's so crazy that waguespack responded that way. "i am the city government but also sorry that the city government is incompetent" shrug.

  • Deb R 60641 resident 40 + yrs.

    LSQ - that's not crazy at all, Waguespacks office was just being honest. Our former alderman's brother used to paint the yellow lines in our ward because the city can't keep up. Just look how badly striped the streets are.
