Is that man still trapping feral cats around the city?

It was on the news a few days ago http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2017/11/30/chicago-man-trapping-cats/ but I have not heard any updates.

I'm not sure how I feel about what he's doing. On one hand, I do not like the thought of half a million cats roaming the streets, and killing birds, and freezing to death.

But on the other hand, it is sad that they are going to an over crowded kill shelter.

Just curious to know if he is still at it?

    Chicago Man Trapping Cats Hopes To Get City's Attention
    CHICAGO (CBS) - A Chicago man, who has trapped more than 40 cats this week, was back at it on Thursday. Chicago's Animal Care and Control (CACC) asked Disgrace Felyer to stop, and even issued a warning to cat owners, or those who care for feral cat colonies, to keep their feline friends indoors.

    Catherine: There are birds of prey such as the American Kestrel, Cooper's Hawk and Peregrine Falcon who choose to make the City of Chicago their home for the plentiful food source but they are free residents and not part of any pest abatement program. Nesting sites have been set up for Peregrines in hopes they would set up house and increase their once decimated population, so those that do nest, do and those that don't, don't. You can fact check that with Mary Hennen or Josh Engel of The Field Museum if you like. Also, there are no resident Bald Eagles in the city but there are in the far suburban areas, perhaps that's what you meant. Thank you for sharing the Bird Collision Monitors info, they are a wonderful organization and we're lucky to have them!

  • Catherine NO!

    The pest abatement program I was referring to had to do with pigeons and the barbed and sharp wires around CTA train stations and other areas. I didn't mean to at all suggest that birds of prey were being purposely used as part of any pest abatement program. My aim...

    The pest abatement program I was referring to had to do with pigeons and the barbed and sharp wires around CTA train stations and other areas. I didn't mean to at all suggest that birds of prey were being purposely used as part of any pest abatement program. My aim was simply to point out some problems with the overgeneralized outdoor cats vs birds argument.

    These articles reference Bald Eagles being sighted in Chicago:

    http://chicagotonight.wttw.com/2017/03/23/bald-eagles-spotted-near-o-hare-signal-comeback

    If the sightings were technically in Chicago suburbs, and not in metro Chicago itself, I apologize. I'm not familiar with the technical boundaries between city and suburbs.

Painter Reccomendations

I had my condo painted a few weeks and the painter did a horrible job. He didn’t patch holes, didn’t use dropcloths, and didn’t paint the ceilings (this is an abbreviated list of what went wrong). I contacted Paintzen to get a quote and they said they would have to repaint everything, which I would rather not do.

  • I decided to go with Chicago Painters, Inc (http://www.chicago-painters.com) and they're coming on Monday. They came out for a quote last Saturday and were great and didn't try to upset. I asked about painting the kitchen cabinets and they said it wouldn't be worth it, since the paint would come...

    I decided to go with Chicago Painters, Inc (http://www.chicago-painters.com) and they're coming on Monday. They came out for a quote last Saturday and were great and didn't try to upset. I asked about painting the kitchen cabinets and they said it wouldn't be worth it, since the paint would come off due to the type of cabinets. They gave a little discount if I booked before March and with that discount the whole job is about half of what I was paying the other company. I'll let everyone know how it all turns out, but so far their office manager and dedicated project manager has been extremely helpful and professional.

  • Great! I haven’t seen you this happy in a while. We’re looking forward to your follow up message!

Rental properties in Lake View

Hi! My husband and I are moving from DC to Chicago in April and are looking to rent in before buying. We've never worked with a broker before but think that may be our best option, since we'll only have a day or two to visit and find a place.

Does anyone have suggestions on a broker/agent? Thanks!

Hi neighbors, does anyone know when the new Planet Fitness that is coming to 3636 N Broadway is going to open??

The stories on the sale on 940 W.

Cappleman has not mentioned this new displacement problem in Uptown against his own constituents and potential voters. He and is staff have not offered any assistance to relocate the tenants WITHIN the 46th Ward at a RENT THAT THE LOWER-INCOME TENANTS CAN STILL AFFORD. The 67 unit building is NOT a Single-Room Occupancy (SRO) building. It was fully occupied (no vacancies) at the time of sale, per RedFin. Due to the apartment mix which includes mostly one and two-bedroom apartments, the building is is likely mostly filled with couples and families., including some children Per Bill Cassin of Apartment Investment Advisers,the broker of the sale:a building-wide conversion into luxury apartments is planned for the building "The sale and planned repositioning of the apartment building will be similar the sale of another Uptown, 8-story building at 817 Lakeside, which is currently undergoing a comprehensive renovation.

According to Cassin, many vintage properties in the area are built well enough to convert into luxury apartments that complement the vintage style. In a statement he added that successful investors can achieve monthly rental rates above $2.00 per square foot while rents at dated properties can be as low as $1.00 per square foot.

Can anyone recommend a dog behaviorist in Lakeview who will actually come out to where we live (Belmont/Lake Shore) and go to the park with my and my dog to work on some really specific behavior issues? She's a great pup, a rescue (about 2 years old now), very sweet, and otherwise very well behaved, but needs help with not suddenly barking at occasional random runners and other people that startle her. (She's tiny so doesn't really startle people, but definitely want to help her to learn not to bark at people.)
I've gone to some training facilities and it's all great while we're there (and I do practice with her what we've learned), but I think it would be much more helpful to have someone who would walk with us and see what's occurring and give some training strategies. Know of anyone? Thank you!

  • Janice Triptow @ Dog Behavior Solutions. She’s been amazing with my dog-reactive rescue, and will come to you.

  • Michelle Clark Proud puppy parent to 2 girls!

    I've referred many people to Barker Behavior (specifically, Melissa) and they've all raved about the impact she made on them and their dogs in even one session. She comes to you and is not expensive. Highly recommend this company!!

  • DS

    I have used Gayle from Its A Pawsitive Thing. She only uses positive reinforcement and is very adept at identifying specific issues and their root causes. Very pleased with her and she can come to you.

Question about the carjackings

It seems that we have tens of carjackings every week. Got me thinking. What is this doing to the car insurance costs in Chicago? And can the victims whose cars get totalled sue the thieves direct or does the insurance sue the thieves?

  • "White flight is real, its not about racism, its about survival."

    It became racism as soon as you made it about races "surviving" by running away from each other.
