Free Reggie the Cat!!!!

Well it looks like we won’t be seeing Reggie the cat on our walks to and from Spilled Ink headquarters anymore. Reggie, the “Mayor of Lincoln Square”, used to be a regular in the neighborhood, but for some reason he has been the target of a ridiculous leash law and will be stuck inside from now on. You can read all bout Reggie’s case here, with a follow up here. Luckily Reggie’s owner had a very large fine reduced, but he still can’t roam the neighborhood. Walks to the Western Brown Line stop will never be the same.

Reggie the Cat

Amanda and I have made the walk between Spilled Ink Press headquarters and the Western Brown line stop about a million times, and it’s always nice to see our buddy Reggie on the way. Reggie is a big orange cat that hangs out around Lincoln Square. We were calling him Charlie for a long time until I thought to look at his tag. Yeah he’s got a tag and lives in the area, but he gets a lot of freedom to roam and interact with his neighbors. He’ll usually walk with you for awhile if you stop to pet him, unless he is lounging comfortably. Actually, he usually walks us to the corner of his block, but no further. And he always chatters at you. Today we saw him hanging out in a big pot like it was a throne or something, right outside of Cafe Selmarie.
