Need to find a new home for my 2 cats

Hello,
So I need to find a new, loving home for my 2 cats. I have a newborn, a 3 yr old & just went back to work, keeping up with my fur babies is getting to be too much for me.

Monkey is a black, long haired boy. He's a sweetheart, loves to be loved. He is very lazy (but what cat isnt) and extremely friendly.
Buttons is a black/white short hair girl. She's also friendly and like to play.

I adopted them as kittens 5 yrs ago and would like to keep them together if possible.

Please email me if you're interested.

thanks

  • Phantom Mouse Resident of actual west Bucktown since 2007

    Your best bet for these poor cats would be to try and get them on a waiting list for entry into a no-kill shelter. The wait would likely be long, especially since they aren't kittens. Some options might be Tree House, Harmony House, PAWS Chicago, Anti Cruelty Society, etc. There are other rescues that might allow you to take your cats to their off-site adoption events in hopes that they might be adopted that way.

  • Yara ~ also reach out to friends and neighbors (even Facebook, if you're on it). sometimes it's only a matter of making people aware that you're in a bad place and need some help. hope things work out for your kitties. they look very sweet and loving.

Block Party

Does anyone know about this block party between Milwaukee and Wellington on Avers. They just had one about a month ago. This ones 9/13/14. I don't mind but they just put the fliers up yesterday(only on cars not on trees like they did before). I wish they would of gave people more time.

Red Ford Focus stolen at around 5pm, Tuesday at Logan and California.

My car was stolen this afternoon. I ran out of gas while making a left turn onto California from Logan. Two kind people helped stop traffic and push me to the north side of California, across the street from the Starbucks. It was a large black man and a small black woman who helped me push the car. They checked that I had help and left me. I immediately started walking south to the gas station on Fullerton and California....

They checked that I had help and left me. I immediately started walking south to the gas station on Fullerton and California. I was gone about ten minutes. When I returned it was gone, though a hubcap was still on the sidewalk.

The person I talked to at the police station said that it is likely that someone perhaps with a tow truck saw it was broken down and took it. It would have been very hard to get gas for it and steal it in the time I was gone. I do have all the keys.

If anyone was in the area at the time or saw anything suspicious, please let me know. Thank you so much.

  • stuff happens. it also will make for a great "Chicago" story over a beverage :)

Graffiti

I've seen this particular graffiti popping up around my neighborhood. Anyone see it elsewhere or know who it's affiliated with?

    Please don't post gang graffiti on public boards; it just boosts the "artists'" egos (something you learn at CAPS meeting). Instead, send the photos to your CAPS facilitator

  • Anton Irie 3 Years And Still Unsure About LS

    I think robin needs to pay closer attention in those CAPs meetings .. That's 100% not gang graffiti. There's a big one roof top just south of the Cali blue line stop that's quite whimsical.

Kosciuszko Pool- Lap Swim

Any reviews on the Kosciuszko pool for adult lap swimming? I'm looking for a neighborhood spot to swim some laps this winter.

  • I went to a few open swims and my toddler took a swimming class there last winter. The pool has a new heater and was always in good shape.

  • I've been doing lap swim there 3-4 times a week for a few years. No complaints. Staff is nice. Locker rooms could be cleaner, but it's the cheapest option out there. For what it is, it's well worth the money.

Frank the Chicken is Missing

My neighbor is missing his rooster from his yard. Frank (the rooster) has lived in the yard for years. Last Friday, we saw Frank on Elbridge. (Sometimes he strolls around the neighborhood.) Then today, I saw the missing signs on light posts. Frank lives at the corner of Elbridge and Drake. Attached is a blurry photo of Frank from last Monday and the flyer. Please help bring Frank back to his yard. He's got a nice, warm dog/ rooster house and a couple of cats and an owner who misses him.

  • I feel bad for this family bc I know they loved him. I lived around the corner from there for a year and Frank made my life miserable with his constant cock a doodle doo-ing. He's a very striking rooster and hopefully someone can find him.

  • I said to the owner of the house once, how much I liked walking by in the evening and seeing his chicken, he said to me, "It's not my chicken. He just showed up one night." That was at least two years ago. Frank has a little dog house, with his name above it and a heat lamp and some straw, so the owner really adopted him as a pet. I feel pretty terrible about this. I liked Frank also and I'm hoping he's found.

  • Villagirl Villagirl

    I left a message for Frank's family this afternoon. We have a mystery rooster staying in our back yard this week. I'm not sure it's Frank, though--he has not cock-a-doodle-doo-ed and we are a bit far from his home. His tail also appears smaller. Fingers crossed, though. I would love to find this rooster's family!

    This may in fact be two separate sites with different ownership. Megamall never owned the land the orchard was "given" by the CTA (was it given?, or purchased?, I am not entirely sure). The Megamall property used some of the CTA land in question for the parking at the very north tip of the block but the CTA still owns/owned that parcel while the Megamall owned everything to the south and the lot behind the L tracks that is included with the redevelopment.

    Again, not entirely sure though.

    If you look at the pictures from the first renderings that were posted, it does look like the parcel to be developed stops with a small shot of a green space with trees pictured just north of the parking entrance/exit on the north end of the property. The picture of the "First & Second Floor - Option D" shows the bit in question that remains an orchard since they won't have control of that part of the land to my knowledge.

  • Here is another shot from the marketing package which shows the orchard as is which would make sense since this development doesn't include that part of the site:

    http://www.sierraus.com/commercial/logan-square-redevelopment/#.VBoEDPldVnG

    Look at the picture of the "from air rendering" to see the site and orchard which sits just to the north.

I am really interested in pairing my wardrobe down to what is called a "capsule wardrobe" (i.e. around 30 clothing items that can be mixed and matched in stylish ways for fall/winter). Does anyone know of any affordable stylists/organizers who could help me with this task?

I basically want someone to help me go through all the clothes I currently own, pick out which clothes to keep, sell or donate the ones I get rid of, and then figure out what key pieces I should buy to create a basic palette that I can use throughout the winter. Then, I'll probably want someone to do the same in the spring. Ideally, I'd love to find someone willing to do the work for cheap or free, and then we can split the money from any clothes I sell. I found one person who provides this service in Chicago, but she charges a minimum of $200 for just a couple hours of work, and that's out of my budget range.

  • You will have to reply back on how your experience goes. I would love to do something like this. I have so much trouble getting rid of things, and a closet full of stuff I never wear. Good luck!

  • Thanks, Emily! I know how you feel about getting rid of things! For the stuff I have a hard time getting rid of, I plan to put it in a box in my storage unit. If I don't feel the urge to use an item all winter, I'll donate or sell that item once spring rolls around. I'm just really intrigued by the idea of living with less "stuff." So, I'm starting with my bedroom/wardrobe, and working my way through the house. :-)

    A close reading of that inspection indicates that an awful lot of what they were failed over is things that were not physically even on the premises at the time the inspection took place. Those are pieces that had not been supplied, and could be on back order, either by the vendor who did the installation, or the company being contracted for their waste disposal. Not a big deal. Just seems a bit like a rush job, or they had locked down the date for inspection, and as things tend to happen. The job is taking longer than they originally anticipated, and planned when they broke ground.

Buying commercial real estate?

Does anyone have experience with, or can refer me to someone who has, buying commercial real estate? My business is losing its lease in a few years, and I'm considering buying something with maybe an apartment attached? It's very difficult for us to find space because we have pretty unique space requirements, so I'd rather not have to worry about leases ending ever again.

I know the rules for commercial are different from residential, so I'd love to just casually get some info without any pressure. Or, if you have experience, you can post your story here...

Hard to believe

    Well, there is a reason they are called bumpers, right?

    But on the other hand, without more details it's hard to know what might have happened. If someone's selfish behavior is going to cost me cash out of pocket, hell yes I'm reporting you. I've had a few times over the years where cars parked literally on top of my bumper, in those extreme cases I've had to get a buddy and physically lift up and move a car off (in which case I feel no shame stating said car was placed somewhere I assume it got ticketed if not towed).

    m123 - let's stay grounded in the discussion as it pertains to Logan Square. I grew up in and around Lake View and Logan Square, and taking the other extreme position and claiming white people only visited the neighborhood to buy drugs is just incorrect.

    Most kids avoid gangs. But it's easier to do for some than others. There was no pressure to do so on my block, we had factory workers around who kept the wanna-be tough guys in check. But I had a friend who committed suicide in his early twenties, and I know that one of the things that led to it was his struggle being a non-gang affiliated Mexican kid in Logan Square. He got harassed everywhere he went, he ended up moving, but he still went home to see his parents, friends, etc. He talked about it a lot.

    My point was simply that in a city this size there will always be young men who band together and cause varying amounts of trouble. I tell everyone the same thing- adults, get outside and do something positive. Garden. Shovel. Sit on your stoop and talk to your neighbors. Walk your dog. Law abiding "regular" people outnumber the serious thugs by an order of 10 to 1, easy. But complaining on the internet, apathy and letting those people think they own a street and do whatever they want without repercussions will destroy a neighborhood.

How to avoid parking my car on a street cleaning day while I'm on vacay?

I wonder if you guys have a solution to this. I park my car on the streets in Logan Square where no permit is needed. I'll be going out of town for ten days and am afraid that during one of those days they may put up "no parking" signs for cars to be moved during street cleaning days. I don't want my car towed while I'm out of town and unable to move my car.

You might suggest that I have a friend move it but I just moved here and don't know many people yet who would be willing to do that for me. So I need a different solution.

Does anyone have thoughts on this?

I live in a three flat in Logan/Avondale and my landlord speaks very little English. He lives in the building and has made it a point to enter my apartment without warning, once I was in the shower and heard a knock on my bathroom door. I freaked out when I heard his voice, got out of the shower, and he was still in my apartment. He has walked up to my roommates sliding glass door (before she hung curtains to prevent him from peering in) he would knock and look into her bedroom until she woke up from his knocking. He has made comments to me when I answer my door shortly after returning home from working out, comments such as "you lookin real good!" then proceeds to stare at me until I hide behind my door and slowly close it. Recently, I came home to a shattered lantern, my balcony table and chairs all moved around. I was scared. The next morning, my roommate sent me a text saying "i think you need to come see this." I walked to the back of our apartment, went out on the balcony only to find our landlord and a couple other guys priming our wrought iron balcony, they had removed all of my lights, moved all of our stuff around, and splattered paint on my table and chairs. I told him he needs to give us 24 hours notice before doing any work like this so I can safely move our belongings and that he needs to reimburse me for the lantern his workers destroyed. He laughed it off. I'm not real sure how to handle this? He has my cell phone number and my roommate's cell phone number, he can easily have his daughter (who speaks perfect English) communicate with us to give us a heads up for any future work that needs to be performed. We really love our neighborhood, don't have any other issues other than the rather pressing issue of feeling a bit sexually harassed by our landlord. I hate to use that term but I'm not sure what else to call it? I don't know what to do about the comments made to me and entering our apartment without notice?

    Thank you, llitman. I appreciate your feedback. I have actually been looking at available apartments for the past week or so. I'm also working on a letter with the help of a friend who is an attorney to let my landlord know how he has violated our lease, privacy, and safety. I've got all of my emails saved, the emails to my roommate and a couple of friends, explaining the incidents in which he has made us feel uncomfortable so I have the dates and I can recall the specifics of each instance. I still have a hard time wrapping my head around him knocking on my bathroom door while I was in the shower then refraining from leaving my apartment while he knew I was showering. This is the second time I've lived in a building that is also occupied by the owner/landlord and it just never feels like it's my home, I feel like I'm living in someone else's home and simply paying them for it. I've learned my lesson the hard way, I won't live in a landlord or owner occupied building ever again.

    I have been a member for a couple of months and really like the convenience of the location. They offer month-to-month memberships at $39 per month (which is what I'm doing), but you can also sign up for a year at $29 per month OR 3 and 6 month memberships, which they are offering until the end of October (not sure how the price works out for those). I like the month to month option, especially since I had no idea if I would like it/want to stay when I first signed up. I have done a bunch of the regularly scheduled yoga classes, which are good. I have also gone to some early-morning (6:30am) pop-up yoga classes, which were great but only had 2 or 3 people. I hope they add regular morning yoga classes, but I have been told by the guy at the front desk that they are planning to push back evening classes and add additional class times as well (they said Sept. 23rd is the planned date for this, but they are notoriously bad about keeping their promises in terms of dates--see: Grand Opening).

    TL;DR Definitely worth it to join, especially if you live very close.

    This is Ericka from She Sorts Organizing. I'd love to help you out with your goals to downsize and get organized! I do free 20 minute assessments for folks in the neighborhood. I'm happy to stop by. You can PM me or get me at shesorts@gmail.com, or at www.shesorts.com, and we can set up a time.
    My advice is, regardless of which company you go with, to make sure that they are properly licensed and insured to come into your home and handle your things. I'm also a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), so I bring a level of ethics, confidentiality, and professional training to ensure you the best experience possible.

    Lots of folks can help you go through stuff and arrange it. But a Professional Organizer, trained through NAPO, is uniquely qualified to not only facilitate your decision-making, but to also transfer those organizing skills to you, so you can continue to be happy and organized in your space going forward.

    best,
    Ericka

Physician

Anyone know of a good physician that treats anxiety. My physician left to another state and my therapist is booked until December.

  • robin in WRP misanthrope

    Your primary care doctor should be able to refer you to a specialist

  • Tom G Living in Avondale since 1994

    Any physician can prescribe anti-anxiety meds for you for the short term and will probably refer you to a psychiatrist, which is the kind of physician that treats anxiety. If you just want a compassionate physician who has dealt with people with anxiety, I will recommend Dr. Paul Abbo. Look him up online. He might even refer you to a therapist who can fill in until yours returns. In any case, keep looking and don't give up. My prayers are with you.

    Thanks so much Tom G I'll look him up...

Is this your dog?

We found this dog this evening on whipple just north of Logan Blvd. she has a collar but no tags and is very friendly. I will also post this on lostdogsillinois.com

    That looks like the same dog my husband found, had the chip run, and reunited with its owner just a month or so ago...

    Did she have a collar with no tags? Also her name is Fluffy.
