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.

GUNS

I am a retired Cop, in the United States , we have 300,000 Police Officers and 11,000,000 hard core gang members . It's not the Guns that's the problem , you have people today that should not be free to kill. London, England has more killing then New York City, all killed with KNIFES not GUNS, Bad people are Just bad and should be put away for life.https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2018/04/03/londons-murder-rate-higher-than-new-york-citys/480860002/

    The problem is the justice system. Reinstate the death penalty with no plea bargaining. You kill a person you lose your life immediately. We have gotten to lenient and the criminals know it.

Looking for info on old McKinley Park storefronts and taverns

Walking around the neighborhood you can't miss all the buildings, mostly sitting on corners, that use to be stores or taverns in the past. I'd love to hear from any residents that remember what some of these places were, when they closed down, and what it was like inside. I've tried doing research online, but it's hard to find specifics.

A couple buildings I've noticed close to me:

corner of 36th & wood
36th & honore
old bar at 36th & damen
wood & 34th pl
Wolcott & 38th st

Any info would be appreciated. I love learning about our neighborhood's history.

  • I don't have pics but I think 36th and Wood used to be called the FBI Tavern. Never had the chance to visit.

  • 36 and Damen was the 3600 Club alot of Daley family members patronized it
