GO DO GOOD blog picked again as one of the best Tribune blogs.

For the fourth time in 18 months, the Chicago Tribune has honored my writing of the GO DO GOOD blog feature ( Why Mr. Rogers Got It and Fox News Never Will!) - selecting it as one of the top 20 in over 1,000 blogs. http://www.chicagonow.com/go-do-good/2018/06/why-mr-rogers-got-it-and-fox-news-never-will/

    Why Mr. Rogers Got It and Fox News Never Will!
    By now I'm sure you're aware that 2018 is the 50th anniversary of "Mister Rogers Neighborhood," broadcast nationally by PBS. The milestone has received a great deal of media coverage, a documentary on PBS - hosted by Michael Keaton, who actually worked on the show, a theatrical documentary that came out in June and Tom...

Lost Cat, Pilsen (18th and Ashland)

I lost my cat, Squirrel Saturday afternoon. The door was left open during a move and she got out.

She was last seen by my apartment at 18th Street and Ashland in the Pilsen neighborhood.

She is a 6 year old female domestic long hair. She is grey with some cream, tan and white markings. She has green eyes and a tipped left ear.

She was timid and is still slow to warm to strangers but has really started to...

I lost my cat, Squirrel Saturday afternoon. The door was left open during a move and she got out.

She was last seen by my apartment at 18th Street and Ashland in the Pilsen neighborhood.

She is a 6 year old female domestic long hair. She is grey with some cream, tan and white markings. She has green eyes and a tipped left ear.

She was timid and is still slow to warm to strangers but has really started to come into her own. I have had her as an indoor house cat for the past 5 years in Chicago. I assume with her behavior and personality that she is likely scared and hiding somewhere right now.

I am distraught over the whole situation.

  • I used to bang canned food around my home to find my guys if they got out. Try that, and call her, maybe you'll find her. Good luck!!

  • She is probably hiding somewhere nearby. Put out her litter box. When it is quiet, go out and call to her. She could also have gotten into an open garage so check with your neighbors. I am confident she will find her way home. My friend lost her cat the same way and she came home 28 days later.

  • So sorry that you lost your cat. I think that there are several facebook and other sites where you can post your pictures and see if someone has found her. If you need help with that, I am happy to search other threads for the links.

    Hope this helps.

Please speak up customers.

  • Padilla parent

    Thank you Cristina for putting this out there it's been dangerous working conditions for the employees but Corporate said they can still work! Sad isn't it? they are in air conditioning in their office comfortable. Walked in for 15 minutes and said no reason to close store here are portable a/c units and seeing ceiling collapsed and said just block it and tell customers don't go that way, unbelievable!

    Those are fire hazards. The place should be fined.
