    I just got this from another posting for a lost cat. Thought it would be helpful so I copied and pasted:
    Here is the lost cat "to do" list. Also, is he chipped? If so, it will be back to the shelter you got him from. One of your first calls should be to them.

    1. put his litterbox outside along with something else he sleeps on or smells like you.
    2. make photo posters and put them in neighbors' doors asking them to check their garages or other places he could be closed in. post on poles around your neighborhood; 3. call the closest vets and let them know he is missing and see if they have any reports; chips sometimes malfunction.
    4. monitor animal control and visit in person;
    5. list on craigslist lost and found, lost cats Illinois, etc.
    5. go out at dusk with a high powered flashlight and call and look for the reflection of the cat's eyes (he has probably not gone too far); call near closed garage doors and listen for a response.
    6.. get up in the middle of the night, (2-3) when it is very quiet and open your front and back doors and call him.
    7. if cat freaks out being outside, borrow or rent a trap from one of the shelters and bait it with his favorite food, cover with blanked and leave on your property but away from house.
    8. update us here with what works or doesn't so we can help other people.

  • Thanks for the tips Jen. Still no Sas. She ran away the first night in our new house so we are looking at both old and new house.

Wood statues stolen from Roscoe Village

Hello neighbors,

I had 3 painted wood carvings stolen from in front of my house near Cornelia and Damen in Roscoe Village last night. They were chained securely, but someone cut the chain or unscrewed the eye locking them. If anyone happened to see anything, or sees some wood carvings lying around somewhere, please contact me. They are about 3 feet, 4 feel, and 6.5 feet tall.

I have reported this to the police, but am posting just in case someone might have seen something suspicious. Like a pick up truck riding down the street with a totem pole. I have photos if anyone has questions.

Thank you,
bill carroll

New restaurant?

Anyone know what’s going in to the former Dive Bar space on Halsted just south of Cornelia? Looks like they’re painting the outside in preparation for something.

  • Do we need another restaurant in the neighborhood.

  • I'm curious too, that was supposed to be the reopening of mEAT, but those signs have been down for over a year now. And, yes, we certainly need as much restaurant choice in this neighborhood as possilbe, anything is better than another closed building.

  • Li, if you think you know what the neighborhood needs, by all means....

    go ahead and take the risk and open up your own business.

    or, sit on the sidelines and take e-potshots at those who have the courage, conviction, stamina and work ethic to try.
