The next seven days are packed full. This is Thanksgiving Week. Thursday is obvious. The following day is Black Friday. Then there’s Small Business Saturday. Cyber Monday starts next week off followed by Giving Tuesday. Whew! I do believe The Holidays have arrived. This will be my first Thanksgiving without... Continue reading

Tibby Bean is my oldest senior Wisher. But she is no longer adoptable. She was diagnosed with acute kidney failure so she will live here for whatever time she has left. She is still doing well. She tolerates getting subQ fluids, she is still eating and drinking, and still moving... Continue reading

Last month, the “potential” for something wonderful started. Do you remember a group of four shelter kittens I was fostering? I offered to my daughters that I would take them for a while because this group was feral. I knew the chance of taming even one from this litter was... Continue reading

I want to briefly mention something here at the beginning of this post. This has been such a roller coaster ride that I don’t dare become comfortable. But for the moment, Silly Whim and Arthur are not coming back. The person who adopted them was returning them because he was... Continue reading

Tibby started her life here as a kitten. She will end it here. She was never Chosen. She’s not far from ten years old and she’s lived her whole life here. But that’s OK. Tibby Bean was never one of my saddest cases as far as needing a home and... Continue reading

You know that I opened a fundraiser on GoFundMe for a large portable building. The person I spoke to (at the portable building business) with questions about such a purchase turned out to be a blessing for sure. He explained that he might know of a way to get a... Continue reading

I took Tibby Bean to the vet last Wednesday. It was not good news. But I don’t want to ruin Halloween with a sad story. So for today – here’s wishing you a Happy Halloween and last day of October. I’ll be back tomorrow to report about a local effort... Continue reading

Before I get started on today’s post, I want to thank everyone who sent an email or left a comment on my last Tuesday post Spoke Too Soon. Knowing so many of you feel as I do really helps. Last Wednesday and Thursday I posted about two Wishers who were... Continue reading

Zen was returned to Winnie’s Wish after being adopted and living with the adopter for a year. The adopter abandoned Zen and the ex-girlfriend returned her to me. Zen was used to sleeping in bed with her humans. She is a WONDERFUL cat – so sweet and so loving. I... Continue reading

Halo came to Winnie’s Wish in 2012. She was eventually adopted, then shifted to a family member’s home, then returned to Winnie’s Wish in November of 2016. She is a shy cat, always has been. She started off her return to WW in a cage in the kennel kitten room.... Continue reading

Last week I told you about Zen coming back to Winnie’s Wish. The woman who adopted her abandoned her. In addition, a friend of my daughters was trying to give away his Wishers – Silly Whim and Arthur – because he was moving. His parents, who’d had the cats declawed... Continue reading

There’s a lot to get to, but we’ll start with Older’s Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab. Throughout Older Daughter’s peak wildlife season – Spring and most of the Summer – I periodically do a Wildlife Wednesday post to give you a peek into her world of wildlife rehabilitation. In the Fall,... Continue reading

With Zen coming back (I picked her up last night) and a downpour of rain onto every single item in the yard sale Saturday and then some pretty bad news (for Winnie’s Wish) on Saturday night, I felt like things were getting to be a bit too much. I was... Continue reading

Last Friday was National Coffee Day. I posted a celebratory graphic on Facebook that day. It has now been several days since that deeply important celebration, so my graphic for you is belated. However, I surely cannot miss entirely this VERY important day. :) Now obviously, last Friday being National... Continue reading

The last thing I need right now is one more cat. Winnie’s Wish is currently three over maximum capacity. And soon to be four. Yesterday I received an email that dropped my heart into my stomach. When I read the words – Please call me at this number as soon... Continue reading

Here’s a bit of good news. As a result of the post I did last Monday, the shelter has had a couple of kitten adoptions. And guess who one of those kittens was?! A little foster of mine who had returned to the shelter – Carmel! I’m so happy for... Continue reading

Hi Friends. Today is about YOU. I’ve said things like this many times over the years. It’s time to say it again. You guys are AWESOME. When I wrote about the portable building I’m trying to raise money for, I considered it merely a story for my blog . .... Continue reading

I’m writing this story on my blog today so that I can share it on the Project Hope Facebook page. The shelter is desperate for feline adoptions. This year, as kittens started coming in, only a couple were adopted out. This means that there are TOO MANY kittens at the... Continue reading

Today I’m telling the story of a fundraiser I’m in charge of. That probably sounds pretty boring. But things came together so beautifully that I really do want to share it with you. A year ago (last September) I had the crazy idea to ask the Board of the humane... Continue reading

The last time I blogged about Older Daughter’s Wild Angels wildlife rehab was the middle of last month. Finally, her busy season is beginning to wind down. By this time of year, she’s exhausted. The last post introduced you to four new baby squirrels. One was injured when the tree... Continue reading

I wrote about converting a second kennel dog run into a “kitty condo.” Sunspot needed a place to live while waiting for her forever home. She did not do well in a room full of cats, so she was living in the enclosure in the middle cat room. I had... Continue reading

It’s the last week of August. I am a Summer-Lover. And even though I very much do love the Autumn as well, I always hate to see the Summer go. With one exception – wow, oh, wow do I ever hope that Autumn brings adoptions. Sometimes when Fall arrives, folks... Continue reading

I mentioned that I took in four foster kittens from the shelter where my daughters work. These four were dumped. They were feral. I told my daughters I would take them and work on taming them. Of course, it’s always unlikely that a whole group of feral kittens will tame.... Continue reading

As Winnie’s Wish has morphed into a sanctuary, I’ve been even more determined to get the adoptable Wishers into homes. There are cats here who will require the usual “Wisher patience” but who WILL eventually adjust and be SO happy to have a home and a person of their very... Continue reading
