Baby raccoons. Baby opossums. Baby deer. The four fawns that Older has at Wild Angels are still doing well. Keeping fawns alive is so very difficult. But there is only good news so far with this group. They are thriving. Fingers crossed. (No new picture of the fawns - they... Continue reading

Last week I wrote about my foster kittens – Tad, Skye, and Weeble. Tad is the little bitty one. Skye is the one with the misformed front legs. Weeble is the one with the head tilt. When I ran the video of Skye on the shelter’s FB page, a woman... Continue reading

Seems like a year since we were on our wonderful vacation in Florida. It was actually only one month ago. But so far I’ve not had the opportunity to share with you about the cats at the place where we stayed. You might remember that we’ve previously had quite the... Continue reading

Two weeks ago in the Wildlife Wednesday post, I shared pictures of raccoons, an opossum, and twin fawns. A few days later, the two became three. And then a few days after that, the three became four. I have a video to share with you of fawn feeding time. This... Continue reading

I have so many things to share. Last week I certainly did not feel like doing any more blogging once I posted about my sweet Gideon. This week, before we get even farther away from vacation, I really need to tell you about the place we stayed in Florida .... Continue reading

My daughters (then 17 and 15 years old) first saw Gideon during a fall festival in the tiny town near our home. He was stumbling all over the place. He would take a few steps and fall. He would try to pick up the pace and completely roll himself over.... Continue reading

Before we left for our annual vacation, Older Daughter had only three baby squirrels in her care at Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab. They were already learning to eat on their own, so they went to a friend who would keep them until our return. (They are now in an outdoor... Continue reading

We went on our wonderful vacation. We’re always gone 10 or 11 days. It’s a solid week of work before we depart, preparing to leave so many animals. And it’s a solid week when we get home getting everything back to normal. We’ve had years when everything went great while... Continue reading

It’s finally vacation time! I’m so excited I can hardly stand it, yet so loath to leave all of these animals that it’s hard to make myself go. But go I will! It’s the only time of year when I stop working. There will be days and days of rest,... Continue reading

Older has taken another baby squirrel. It has joined the first two. Same story – tree cut down. This is the only survivor. The two previous baby squirrels are learning to eat nuts. Older Daughter has asked me to put this picture on the blog (and her FB page). At... Continue reading

Yes, Friends, it has happened! The BEST! Another Wisher has found a Forever Home. Zen showed up on my deck one Fall with chewed up feet and a terribly thin body. She became a Wisher. She was lucky enough to be adopted and I thought all was well. Then, the... Continue reading

If you read here regularly, you remember the story of Silly Whim & Arthur being returned at almost nine years of age after spending their entire lives in a home. (They were adopted as kittens.) Then a dear friend connected me with a family who wanted to adopt the bonded... Continue reading

At some point last year, Older Daughter had a “special” baby opossum in her care. He was one of many opossums, but this particular one had a crossed eye. At first Older worried – would this guy be releasable? If an opossum has a crossed eye, can it still do... Continue reading

I’ve been asked more than a couple of times to do an update on our newest family member. You might remember that we adopted a second pig. It turned out to be quite the ordeal. First, we had to get our pig Arnold neutered. This was a very traumatic event... Continue reading

It begins . . . The first babies have arrived into Older Daughter’s care. Older has the licensed wildlife rehab called Wild Angels. We were thinking back, and we are pretty sure this is kind of a late start for her “baby season.” The earliest babies are often bunnies. Those... Continue reading

Last Monday I posted that I wouldn’t be doing my normal Tuesday post that week. I was supposed to be up at 4am and on the road by 5am to a television station that is a little less than an hour from my home. Let me start at the beginning.... Continue reading

No post tomorrow (Tuesday April 10). I’ll explain later in the week or Tuesday next. Was going to share yard sale pictures with you this week, but I did not have a yard sale on Saturday. Here’s why: Can’t miss sharing a gift that arrived for Winnie’s Wish, with a... Continue reading

I live in a VERY rural county in southern Illinois. I’m sure I’ve mentioned that there is no humane society in my county. The shelter where my daughters work is in the next county over. There are some extremely tiny “pounds” that only hold a dog or two in a... Continue reading

Today’s post is a celebration of YOU!!! You wonderful people (the readers of this blog, supporters of Winnie’s Wish and Wild Angels) were the biggest contributors to the fundraiser I had on GoFundMe for a yard sale building. So now you get to see what your precious dollars have purchased.... Continue reading

A couple of weeks ago, a rescue pig came into the shelter where my daughters work. They managed to put together a makeshift living area for her until a home could be found. Husband and I met the pig when we stopped in one day. We were picking up pig... Continue reading

I usually post pictures of Wish List gifts at the end of a post. But I’m going to start today’s post with that subject matter. You’ll see why. Alyssa sent a gift to Winnie’s Wish. Alyssa is a long time supporter of me and the Wishers, and she carried that... Continue reading

I’ve missed my own blogoversary a couple of times over the years. Somehow I managed to remember it this time. I started blogging on March 11th in 2010. So this Sunday will mark the end of my eighth year of blogging and the beginning of my ninth year. As far... Continue reading

About three weeks ago, I ran a couple of videos on my Facebook page – videos of some Wishers needing homes. I ran the video of precious Zen getting and giving hugs, and I ran a video of the sweet and shy Halo. What happened as a result completely shocked... Continue reading

My dear friend Virginia (Poupounette Gang), whom many of you know, wrote to me about a week and a half ago to share some very sad news. She said that a good friend of hers named Peggy Bouchard had died from head injuries she had sustained from a bad fall.... Continue reading

It was only in December when I was trying to trap a black cat that kept showing up in the field across from my house. We called him The Elusive One because I’d been seeing this cat here and there for six months before I was finally able to trap... Continue reading
