Found: Young gray cat with fluffy tail and white flea collar

Found a sweet gray cat with a fluffy tail. Young and small--very sweet and friendly and feeling lost. She's wearing a white flea collar. She followed my boyfriend home. He found her on Monticello (near Cullom).

  • An update: I took him to the vet. He is not chipped, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV
    (whew!!). We've put up flyers, and rung a bunch of doorbells, but it seems like he might have been on his own for some time. We thought he was very young, but he...

    An update: I took him to the vet. He is not chipped, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV
    (whew!!). We've put up flyers, and rung a bunch of doorbells, but it seems like he might have been on his own for some time. We thought he was very young, but he is a mature cat just very underweight.

    He's safe with me for as long as he needs--maybe forever if we can (slowly) get him together with our two cats. He's so sweet. I'm taking him back to the vet for a full exam next weekend.

    However, I'll leave this post up for a while in case someone is looking for him. Please let your neighbors know if you hear anything! Thank you.

    Aww. Thank you for having him checked out and taking him in! He is lucky to have found such kind people.

Gently Used Medical Supplies - Where to Donate?

Hello, neighbors! I am currently recovering from surgery and had to purchase a few items to make life manageable that I'd like to donate or sell in December when I *hopefully* no longer need them. I will have the following, all gently used:

1 pair of crutches (for heights 5'2" - 5'10")
1 cam walker boot with air pump (size adult small)
1 mobility knee scooter
1 shower chair
1 shoe lift (women's small, sizes 5.5-8)

1 cam walker boot with air pump (size adult small)

I've heard that some physical therapy offices will take these and donate them to countries in need, but I'd also love to help local folks if possible. I've checked places like ALS association, Shriners, and other organizations that don't accept these items.

Does anyone know of a local nonprofit that can use these items? If not I still plan on asking my physical therapist if they can donate them.

Thanks!

Dog passed away in my alley

I was coming back from work and saw a dog who had passed away laying in the alley this morning between Monticello and central park, south of Leland . Looked like a terrier or beagle mix. Had nothing on me to move the dog. So i went home to get a blanket, went back and the dog was gone. Looked in the garbages and didn't see it. Anyone know any thing?

    Thank you guys, animal control did pick up the poor thing. Haven't seen any signs posted for it either.

Very odd encouter tonight around 8pm with two rather LARGE racoons acting like gansters(wish i was kidding). One climbed out of tree on the South side of farragut and went into someones front yard bushes so me and my dog crossed the street to avoid the thug(he did stare us down). Smart right, or so i thought. As im walking and watching the south side of street, i hear a scrambling of claws on bark directly in front and to the left of me and watched in horror as his bigger and badder partner in crime LANDED RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY DOG on the sidewalk. I sceamed(Im a soprano screamer so glass was breaking somewhere), yanked my dog hard back towards me and watched as this bandit hopped in the air in fear(i think my scream scared him off his plan to eat my dog) and he bolted across the street to meet up with his cohort. At that point i wasn't sure how many more there might be so i yelled my dogs name and said RUN!! We took off like lighting(well at a fast trot), but my dog kept checking behind us to be sure we weren't being followed.....in all seriousness....WATCH OUT. This really happened, and a smaller dog could have been seriously harmed. Please spread the word. DESCRIPTION: Grey body fur, black stripes, black mask around beedy eyes, fat, sharp claws, working in tandem, north and south sides of west farragut, 2100 block(alley going West to Levitt).

  • LP in Lincoln Square.....couldn't agree more!

  • There's a huge raccoon that often chills on the stoop of a building on Argyle and Bell. He's a scowler too. I have not seen him in several months.

Warning! Fox spotted in Ravenswood Gardens Area!

At about 8:25 PM Friday October 6, I stepped out with my dog for our nightly walk when I suddenly spotted a FOX standing on the NE corner of Rockwell and Sunnyside. It just stood there staring at us as we were abut 20 feet away. I immediately scooped up my small Jack Russell Chi and held under my arm. The fox walked away after about 3 minutes and continued southward on Rockwell towards Montrose. I called 911 and they...

So this is a warning to small pet owners as myself to be careful in this area if walking at night...do not take your eyes off your small pets or let loose if in this area!

    Thank you OP. People should watch their tiny dogs if off leash, but as Jill so eloquently stated, coyotes are rarely dangerous so just give them some space. As for rats and rabbits, go get them Mr. Coyote. We are overrun and need to balance out.

Parking in Albany Park

My wife and I recently purchased a home in Albany Park that has two gravel parking spots in addition to a garage. We'd like to rent out the gravel spots as we don't need them, but we're unsure as to how to go about doing this. Do people typically use a contract for this? How much do spots go for in the area (an internet search didn't turn up any comps)? Any advice folks may have would be appreciated.

  • Hello, I am looking for parking at Kimball and Lawrence. Please let me know if you know of any space.

Dog wandering in neighborhood

Dog - found but not able to catch, or see the tag of a dog that has been wandering around my neighborhood, I think the last few days it has been around barking. It is lighter brown short hair, medium to strong build, upright ears that flop over, maybe part boxer. Has a collar - cubs or sox insignia on it. If you are missing this dog, it is around my neighborhood, 4500, 4400 block of Monticello and Central Park. I was unable to approach the dog which was barking continuously.
6pm Thursday.
