Willie the Wildcat was sighted this afternoon around 4pm near the intersection of Emerson & the alley of the 1900 block of Orrington Avenue.
The temperature was about 100 degrees when we saw him. And yet, amazingly, he was full of his near-hyperactive vim and vigor. The heat had no virtually no effect upon him.
Apparently not even this unbearably freakish mid-September heat wave can stop a wildcat.
Go U, NU! Go Wildcats!
