Winnie's Wish cathouse in the snow. Indulge me please. Let me mention (again) that the greatest thing that can happen here is a home for a Winnie’s Wisher. Here are the links for some posts about Winnie’s Wishers who are ready and waiting. Pick out your next best friend, or... Continue reading

If you’ve been “connected” in any way at all, you know that most of the U.S. is dealing with full-on WINTER weather. We had our first snow much earlier than usual on Sunday night. Then Monday night the temperature dropped to 14 degrees, with a windchill in the single digits.... Continue reading

Sometimes the shelter where my daughters work has an animal who needs some extra TLC. Last week I told you about Canyon, the dog who had pretty much given up and fallen prey to depression. (He is doing fantastic, by the way.) Today I want to introduce you to Sprite.... Continue reading

This is what we woke up to this morning. And tonight? We drop into the teens with a wind chill temp in the single digits. Now here is a line I took from another blog – Want to help your kitties stay warm and cozy in a soft flannel beddy... Continue reading

It’s hard to believe, but Nisha – one of the West Woods Gang – is moving into the “adoptables” list. This gal was the last to show up in this Fall’s strange discovery of cats living in the dense West Woods that butts up against our property. The four in... Continue reading

Maybe you remember Toast and Slate, two Winnie’s Wish brothers who came in together with another brother (Smokey) and a sister (Snowflake). They have been here since the summer of 2013. Slate and Toast Smokey and Snowflake The three boys eventually tamed and moved to the cathouse. Snowflake was much... Continue reading

Last week, the shelter where my daughters work, along with some other shelters and rescues, answered a call for help. A shelter/sanctuary was closing and there were lots and lots of dogs who needed immediate placement. My daughters’ shelter would take what they could. Luckily, they’d just had several adoptions....

Tomorrow I have a story about a dog that you won’t want to miss. But today . . . It looks like the Holiday Season has arrived. When I was growing up Halloween was a one-day event. Thanksgiving was a one-day event. And Christmas was the two-week period leading up... Continue reading

Here goes another push for the bonded pair – Tinkerbell and Peter Pan. PLEASE share this post on Facebook, Twitter, wherever you can. I appreciate your help so much! (some new pictures of them in this post) This is a sister-brother pair who need to be adopted together. They started... Continue reading

I’ve been doing rescue work for a long time. I’ve learned so much over the years. One of the areas I’ve learned about is feral cats. I am a supporter of TNR programs. I believe that in lots and lots of cases, feral cats living in feral communities are happier... Continue reading

You were with me as I slowly trapped four felines who were visiting my yard and then disappearing into the dense West Woods. It was only when the third of the group entered the picture that I put some pieces together and realized we had a family. Kizzie, an older... Continue reading

Many shelters put holds on the adoptions of black cats during the month of October. I’ve explained why here on this blog before. I won’t go into detail again, but this is primarily to keep people from adopting a novelty “Halloween Cat” only to no longer want the cat after... Continue reading

Today is National Cat Day. So give your cat an extra pat, hug, or snuggle today. OR . . . here’s an even better idea. Adopt your next best friend ------ from Winnie’s Wish! Scroll down the right sidebar and take a look at the great cats ready for a... Continue reading

In the dictionary, sanctuary is a synonym for shelter. In common usage, however, we tend to think of a shelter as something temporary and a sanctuary as more enduring. Shelters for animals and for people are considered places to go in extreme circumstances – until things get better and living... Continue reading

This is Halloween week. Hard to believe it is already the last week of October. My brain categorizes the Seasons in terms of what it means for Winnie’s Wish. It goes like this: January and February – Winter; March and April – Spring (and technically the beginning of Kitten Season);... Continue reading

Yes. I had caught something in my trap. It was mid-morning. There shouldn’t be ANYTHING showing up at that time of day. My expectation when I set the trap last Saturday morning was that I would have to battle through the spiders sometime late Saturday night to check for a... Continue reading

On Saturday morning I put food out in the three locations along the edge of the West Woods. In a spur-of-the-moment decision, I had decided to set my trap. I knew the nocturnal creature who had been eating the food would not come to dine during the day. That meant... Continue reading

I knew the chances of another sibling still being somewhere out in those West Woods was slim, but after trapping Bunny (the third of that family), I started leaving food in three different places along the line where our property meets the woods. Two of those spots are right at... Continue reading

Hey Friends. Here’s a quick Facebook report. My deep thanks to everyone who is sharing my posts – the blog posts and the various other things I am posting to my Daily Dose FB page. Because of the “Shares” on Traci Mae’s post, my FB page report tells me that... Continue reading

Traci Mae has certainly done enough time in a shelter. My heart breaks for her EVERY day. When I met Traci Mae she had already spent time at the shelter where my daughters work. She was so unhappy there that I brought her here so her life might be better... Continue reading

Before I start today’s post, let me thank everyone who shared my yesterday’s post on Facebook. My Daily Dose Facebook page received nineteen new Likes as a result, but listen to this – the “Reach” of that one post was OVER ONE THOUSAND. Can you imagine if my adoption posts... Continue reading
Quite a while back I got on Facebook. I did this for two reasons – to sell books and to get adoptions. I did not, as a result of being on Facebook, sell one book or get one adoption. So eventually I left Facebook. However, somehow my Daily Dose FB... Continue reading

Luckily there has been no feline drama since I last posted. No new kismets, no yard cats, no bunnies. Also – NOBODY is near death’s door or even sick. And – there’s good news to report concerning Bunny. Since I’ve been released from the mind-gripping fear and adrenalin of trying... Continue reading
