Outside Cats

The owner of the house 6341 S Kilpatrick feeds stray cats and the cats are multiplying. They are pooping in front of neighbors houses and scratching up carpet ect.... I spoke to the owner because I wanted to tell him his cats were outside and it was below zero. The man said he's been feeding them for years. I asked if he takes them for shots or to the vets for anything and he said no he can't trap them. Nobody knows what can be done. We need to get them to a shelter. Any suggestions?

  • Continuation:

    Similarly, if you do not register your outdoor cats as feral colony, and one of "your" strays gets caught as a nuisance cat by the City, you may be refused the return of the cat. And that is all what is going to happen to you. Nothing else will...

    Continuation:

    Similarly, if you do not register your outdoor cats as feral colony, and one of "your" strays gets caught as a nuisance cat by the City, you may be refused the return of the cat. And that is all what is going to happen to you. Nothing else will happen. There is no fine, no ticket.

    However, in reality, it has happened in the past that a TNR caretaker was informed by the city they caught the colony cats only to find that half of the cats the city said it had were missing (read: PTSed). So, I don't know how much it matters. If your stray cat is picked up by the city with no chip - you ain't getting it back. Just be prepared for that. Period.

    But please, do not read this document as banning feeding stray cats. It's not about that at all.

  • This is the law she's referring to:

    The Cook County Managed Care of Feral Cat Ordinance, Chapter 10 Animals, Article IV Managed Care of Feral Cats, Section 10-95 through 10-99 was passed and adopted October 16, 2007 and went into effect 30 days after that date.

Order of Everyblock

I haven't been able to figure out what order our original posts are in. When I open Everyblock, I see the same articles all past due or all old and no more activity. My thought is the order should be by date order (latest date on top) within their area. I'm on my IPhone not on a laptop or computer. But does anybody know the order???

  • If anybody is reading this who is In charge of Everyblock, can you please help me out with my question? How are the articles stored, by date within ward or zip, or by subject?

    When I open the iPhone ap I see old posts, such as the original intro to the re-opening of Everyblock. I'd love it if the old data would be at the bottom and the newest posts at the top. Any help with this question?

Sox vs Cubs

It's time for a real competition! Are Cubs fans cleaner than Sox fans? Tell us if you're a Cubs or Sox fan and if the maintenance of your property listed below is done. Who has the garbage picked up in front of your house, in the alley, on the corners, out in the street gutters. Who has put down preen and green to prevent the spring weeds. Are your leaves raked up from last year and are those newspapers off...

It's time for a real competition! Are Cubs fans cleaner than Sox fans? Tell us if you're a Cubs or Sox fan and if the maintenance of your property listed below is done. Who has the garbage picked up in front of your house, in the alley, on the corners, out in the street gutters. Who has put down preen and green to prevent the spring weeds. Are your leaves raked up from last year and are those newspapers off your lawn, parkway, and under your bushes gone. Is there a neighbor that you can help or needs help accomplishing these things.Tell us Sox or Cubs and if all that is done. Or tell us it's not done. Let's see the difference between a Cubs or Sox fan with cleanliness of their property!!!!

  • Well I didn't fool anyone! My goal as always is to pick up the garbage in front and back of your house, even your neighbors house. But I got no response! Ok

  • Kath Kath

    Mary sorry your Van was stolen. My minivan was stolen 1 month ago when my brother was using it. He had just pulled out of garage & parked it in front of house on 57th & washtenaw. It was there 10 minutes & was stolen. We called everyday to check if it was found always being told NO ' city didn't find it. then 2 WKS after it Was stolen on a Sunday (it' was taken on Friday) I got call from detective it was found and towed to impound on Sacramento Blvd.. it had been sitting in the Impound for 3days. they found it around 300 S. Western. the belief is that neighborhood thugs were Joy Riding & using for a Crack den! Repairs are just broken windows, steering column, and body work to repair dents & side swipes to the doors. the detective Also told Me that the vans are the easiest thing to steal & it happens all the time. I'll Pray that You get your van bacK. Just keep calling the city pound@ Sacramento Blvd.

  • We got the van back! But they left it pretty bad! The whole front was crashed into a pole!!! Upsetting but thankful that we got it back! After a few $$ repairs, think we can look forward our camping trips. Chicago cops were very professional, they called me and waited...

    We got the van back! But they left it pretty bad! The whole front was crashed into a pole!!! Upsetting but thankful that we got it back! After a few $$ repairs, think we can look forward our camping trips. Chicago cops were very professional, they called me and waited patiently until I met them where van was (63rd and honore). Thanks Chgo Police and folks here on EveryBlock. Community news, updates, and attending your local CAPS Beat meeting are all important tools to help your neighbor!
    Since the van had only liability, think I'll start a fundraiser here.. Lol j/k!!

    Appreciate everyone's concern...

I think if they do catch any of them they should make there parents pay for clean up if they don't or cant pay then the parents or parent and child should be held accountable in some form of the law. I believe that if a parent or guardian is not held accountable for the actions of there child nothing or will be done. And yes I also believe that there parents don't care as long as it is not there property. So I guess you have to hit them in the wallet or put them on a graffiti clean up crew and see how much they like cleaning the garbage they put up. We pay taxes and the money we use to clean up graffiti could be spent in other productive ways. JUST MY OPINION

  • j.d.v.d. neighbor

    It seems that the graffiti hasvbecome an epidemic that is bot going away.

  • Actually it calmed down a little during the winter and there always is an up tick in it when the schools are off.
