Lost Black and White, Tuxedo Cat (East Rogers Park (Blocks of Bosworth/Nearby))

12
Bosworth near North Shore

Greetings, Folks!

Different kind of post here (I actually ran a version of it last winter, and over the months on here as well. Have also posted in the various cats sections on FB, The Bosworth Block section, lostmykitty.com, and the local shelters as well.)

Just wonder if anyone has seen my little friend here in recent times (Butch)?

Long story short:

We sold our house to 2 good young guys, back in very-early November of 2018 (right near Bosworth & North Shore.) However, in the months prior, I would feed this little guy/give him drinks almost nightly- when it was warm out.

We left, I felt bad; so, posted about him, handed out many, many fliers over time- basically flooding the neighborhood (including individuals, small businesses, and postal carriers in the area). Then...

Lo & behold, he was seen twice! Once in early March, 2019; then again in mid May, 2019 (by some very nice men; one on the block north- 6700 N Ashland, one on the block south of 6500 N Bosworth). This positively confirmed to me that he made it through that harsh winter, 2 years back now (smiles. And, since January of 2020, 2 additional men thought they MIGHT have seen him- near Sullivan High School.)

I believe he was ultimately a true feral; therefore, an elusive target. Medium build, with distinctive b & w markings- as shown (the face is almost an exact mix, half & half- but in vertical, not horizontal, fashion; exactly as shown here. And most of underside is white, while black on top. Look carefully at these images. And one who lives in the middle of 6500 N Greenview looks a lot like him too! But that one has the colors horizontal, as opposed to vertical, on his face.) Could never figure out exactly where he came from, and I know a few in the neighborhood remembered him, from the time.

I would actually give supplies and, yes, $ reward to some nice person to feed him/give him drinks the way that I did. Sure, I know it's a long shot now. But I'm hoping that at least, SOMEBODY in the area, or nearby areas, saw/knows something from over the months.

As one classic film reiterates... hope is a good thing (smiles).

Thank You!
Bob
(Update: the nice manager at Clark/Devon Hardware, Jay, put it up on his posterboard; as a result, I got a call from a man who MIGHT have seen him, but up near Lunt & Paulina. But, this unfortunately turned out to be another look alike.)
