Lost kitty named Tabitha

Our 1 year old kitten seems to have gotten out of the house. She's an indoor cat and very friendly. Please help us find her. Our little girl is heartbroken

  • Any update? If you haven't already post/look on Lost Cats of Illinois on Facebook

  • No updates. Will try that too thank you

  • I'm not sure where you are at, but I have seen a young cat, who looks lost a couple times around the 1200 - 1300 block of Elmdale. It's only at night, so I haven't been able to get a close look at the markings, but the build is slight.

Hello Parents!!

I have full and part time openings in my small group Daycare in my home in W Rogers Park!

I am 27, with dual degrees in early Childhood Education and Special Education.I have been a private Nanny for nearly 7 years to children with special needs and those without, before I decided to branch out on my own. I offer a weekly curriculum with books and activities daily. 2 Healthy meals and 2 snacks. I am just across the street from an open grass area and a short walk from a playground. I have 1 part time assistant and will hire another when needed.

With small group care children remain at a ratio of 3:1*, which means children receive much more individualized care an attention, and are broken up into groups based on age and ability.

With the warm weather fast approaching we will spend outside playing with chalk, at the playground, having water play time, free play, bubbles and so much more!

I have weekly, fultime, part time and drop in rates. Feel free to message me and check out Laugh Learn and Play with Nasha on Facebook to see the space and some of the activities!

******I am running a special the week of June 26th through July 6th*****

Hope to hear from you soon!

Moving into this area! Thoughts

We have lived in the city for 27 years, and are thinking of the area of Damen and Jarvis.

    To clarify: we're only moving because we want a yard and more dogs! Third floor condo isn't very conducive for being crazy dog people! :)

    I walked a dog in that neighborhood for a couple of months. Some blocks are nice, others not so much. I did notice a lot of dog waste and garbage around the area. In general, its nice during the day but I have no idea what its like at night. Parking is difficult.

Do not eat any kind of romaine lettuce, CDC warns
Public health officials are telling people to avoid all romaine lettuce. An E. coli outbreak linked to the vegetable has spread to at least 16 states and sickened at least 60 people, including eight inmates at an Alaska prison.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that new information about the illnesses in Alaska led them to expand an earlier warning to avoid chopped romaine.. The CDC now says people should not eat any type of romaine lettuce, including whole heads and hearts of romaine. The exact source of the tainted lettuce has not been identified, but federal officials have said the contamination appears to come from lettuce grown in the Yuma, Ariz., region.

At least 31 people have been hospitalized, including five who developed a type of potentially life-threatening kidney failure known as hemolytic uremic syndrome. No deaths have been reported.

  • Those wealthy people you are slamming donate millions of dollars to charity, including museums, theaters etc. There are a lot of lower income people that also donate what they can. Bottom line we aren't in the upper 9% but are weighing our options because it is simply becoming impossible to keep up with the rising taxes and fees and fund our own retirement.

Missing 7-pound Maltese back home

Dolma, the super-cute 7-pound Maltese, has been reunited with her mistress in the 6600 block of North Talman. Dolma was in the front yard in the care of a visitor who turned his back for a second, and Dolma bounded away and out of sight. The next day, a neighbor living a block away saw a Maltese wandering aimlessly, and noticed printed notices on lamp posts about a lost Maltese. When he asked, “Are you Dolma?” and Dolma picked up her ears, he carried her back to her house and a grateful owner.

Much relieved and thankful to all who cared.
