I posted yesterday that I would be heading to the vet with Jane as soon as they could get me in. We were given an appointment time of eleven fifteen. I had been having a really difficult time with the fear that I wouldn’t know when to take Jane to... Continue reading

This blog has not been a very interesting place to visit recently. Between the busy-ness here and now Jane going downhill, I haven’t had the time to write and post the way I’d like to. Of course, the fun stories are born of actual rescues taking place. Those stories are... Continue reading

Thank you for your kind comments about my Janie Dog. I will keep you posted. Today I’m going to combine two subjects: Christmas in July and an update on the one tame and three feral kittens. I had planned to update you on these four darlings last week. I got... Continue reading

Last week turned out to be one of the busiest weeks of the Summer. As I’ve mentioned, Summer is my busy season for the kennel. In addition, some family issues put me behind and I ended up not blogging the second half of last week. While I was away from... Continue reading
Oh, dear. Too busy to post this morning. Let's hope keeping Peter Pan and Tinkerbell at the top will get them a home. ( Or Autumn. Or Sugar Cookie.) Have a good Tuesday. Continue reading

I’m meeting myself coming and going. This is the busiest season for my boarding kennel. I haven’t had time to write much. Of course, my biggest, greatest, most important, number one, top goal is to find homes for Winnie’s Wishers, so this week I’ll do some highlights and hope, hope,... Continue reading

I’ve had a couple of breakthroughs in the cathouse just in the last couple of weeks. If not for these, I would be tempted to say that the current three feral kittens (Peeta, Finnick, and Prim) might live out their lives in the cathouse. But two previously quite feral Winnie’s... Continue reading

Sweet Autumn is the Winnie’s Wish calico. Her two family members, Truly and Shiloh, were adopted this year. HURRAY for that!! But Autumn is still here, and she follows me all around in the cathouse EVERY time I go in. It would be wonderful to have Autumn chosen for adoption.... Continue reading

Sugar Cookie continues to be healthy. She was always the most active of the three in her litter. She plays, talks, and LOVES to eat. She is precious and cute beyond words. I would like to get Sugar Cookie into a home while she is still a baby. It would... Continue reading

The four remaining kittens – Sugar Cookie, Peeta, Prim, and Finnick – are all still well. Dr. O said when I lost Dreamy and Punkin that he felt like it might have been a structural problem – that something internal had not developed correctly. If that was the case, then... Continue reading

Just over a week ago, I received an email from someone interested in adopting from Winnie’s Wish. In the email Chesney said this - I found you on petfinder.com and felt really drawn to your mission. I was pretty sure I liked this young woman already. As I always do,... Continue reading

First of all, you people are ALWAYS wonderful. You are a gift to me. I hated sharing such an awful story yesterday on this blog. I would certainly much rather tell you happy stories. But as always, you came through with your comments and emails and made me feel extremely... Continue reading

I’m not sure how to start this post. Late last night, I wrote and wrote and wrote. Then I ended up erasing the whole thing. There’s just no way to write a normal-length post about what has happened here. I’m hanging in limbo right now, waiting to see if this... Continue reading

It’s been a week of stories about fosters. Today is no different. Yesterday I told you about little Starlight – a comatose kitten who is now making a complete recovery. Today, a story about two little kittens, even younger than Starlight, who were brought to the shelter starving and sick.... Continue reading

Before I start today’s story, let me thank you for your kind words about Bosco. You guys never fail me – your kindness and compassion help so much. The shelter where my daughters work is completely FULL of cats. This is true for most shelters at this time of year.... Continue reading

The story for today was supposed to be about a foster kitten I took in last week. But I need to shift gears. I’ve had a foster dog here for several days, and yesterday I lost him. It was not entirely unexpected. Or rather – I was pretty sure it... Continue reading

Last week I didn’t post on Thursday like I usually do. I wanted my Wednesday post to run an extra day since it was a plea for adoptions. But if I had blogged on Thursday, I would have had a story to tell. Actually, last week brought THREE new situations... Continue reading

Just over one week ago, I wrote this on the blog: June is Adopt-A-Cat Month. This is because June transitions us from Spring to Summer. Spring is the beginning of Kitten Season and by June there is a brand new overabundance of kittens. So to make room for all of... Continue reading

Kittens are so cute it is almost unnatural. As I've said before, I believe pictures of kittens bathe your brain in feel-good chemicals. So I’m going to bombard you with more pictures today. The three tiny tame ones are happy about everything. Last night I was sitting in the floor... Continue reading

The six kittens have now been here for a full week. All have been wormed and had the first in the series of kitten vaccinations. The three youngest are completely tame and SO wonderful. Wonderful beyond words. I wish you ALL could experience them. They are so cute it’s painful.... Continue reading

Younger Daughter went to her uncle’s to pick up the feral tortie mom cat who was now in the trap. When she got there, three more kittens were lying around in the yard, practically in a circle around the trap – orange, orange & white, and black & white. So... Continue reading

When I arrived I fell immediately in love. Husband was holding the little bitty he had taken the picture of. This was a young kitten, about seven to eight weeks old, mostly white with some orange. I placed it in a carrier. I took my trap over to a spot... Continue reading

This is the beginning of a rescue story. However, I’m going to start with a slightly different introduction. Here’s my introduction . . . HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There was just no way to NOT end up here. It’s Kitten Season. I always know this is a possibility. But Friends, let me tell... Continue reading

June is Adopt-A-Cat Month. This is because June transitions us from Spring to Summer. Spring is the beginning of Kitten Season and by June there is a brand new overabundance of kittens. So to make room for all of the new ones, shelters everywhere push for adoptions of the cats... Continue reading
