  • Meanwhile, one block north, six Chicago Police officers sit in their "patrol" cars idly watching Mayor Emanuel's house.

    The officers can't respond to other crimes in the neighborhood because that would leave the Mayor's home vulnerable.

    All Chicagoans are equal, but some are more equal than others.

    Oddly enough i find my elderly clients always have their walkways shoveled and salted. What a nice gesture victor. When i see posts looking for someone ill send them your way. I thought of this thread today as i walked a large elderly dog whos guardian fails to see its his dogs time. The dog slipped on the ice as he can barely walk on clear walkways. Then i remembered how i used to walk in lincoln park and see a blind woman everyday walking from clark to orchard and how upset i couldnt help her navigate as i was walking 2 large dogs myself but st hilary would not have their sidewalks shoveled or salted. Some peopl3 have a hard time walking without heels or snow or ice to navigate.

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.

    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:

    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.

    I see it didn't take long for this to turn into a thread full of comments about the alleged benefits of having non-native predators like cats running wild in the city. The thread topic really is about this guy who is acting within the law to trap illegally free-roaming house cats (not ferals, even) and turning them in to CACC, which is supposed to (but clearly can't) accept them.

    Perhaps we should also talk about the fallacy that no-kill shelters are an actual solution to those which euthanize animals which cannot be adopted out. Because that's another thing that this trapper is demonstrating.

    I live on a block where we have many 2 or three flats and very few one family homes. There is one house with 5 cars that when someone takes off with their car they move another up to hold parking space. If two cars leave they move another effectively holding 4 parking spaces. I think of myself as a nice guy so I really dont care MOST of the time. It does get out of hand when I have to park around the block every day. What can I 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 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.

Have an indoor/outdoor cat? You might want to keep them inside

This guy is trapping dozens of cats on the north and south side and bringing them to CACC. They're trying to work with him to STOP DOING IT, but he seems to be on some kind of personal crusade.

If you let your cat outside, and it disappears, check http://petharbor.com/chicago/

If you are a colony caretaker and one of your charges disappears... check with CACC.

    Man Who's Trapped 30 Feral Cats Says He Will Continue
    CHICAGO (CBS) - Chicago's Animal Care and Control (CACC) is warning cat owners, and those who care for feral cat colonies, about a man who's been out trapping cats. CACC said the man trapped 15 cats on the South Side on Monday, another 15 on the North Side on Tuesday, and more on Wednesday and brought them all to the city shelter on Western Avenue.

Dog Behaviorist Wanted

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...

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.
