Older Daughter now has a plan for the coyote. And that will be the main thing I blog about today. But first a few updates and one new introduction. The only remaining raccoons are now in outdoor enclosures and have been for a while. They are very close to release... Continue reading

Do you know what I was blogging about this time last year? Well, I was doing a lot of “It Was Worth It” posts written by folks who have adopted Winnie’s Wishers and were willing to say why it was SO good. I went back and scanned through some of... Continue reading

I’m stealing some content for this post from the wonderful blog Random Felines (with permission of course). Because of losing Tiger Lily last Sunday night, my blog was a little off last week. It wasn’t until this weekend when I was reading the Random Felines blog that I realized I’d... Continue reading

I tried to get the Fall season ushered in on September 1st. I always consider Autumn sort of the beginning of the end of Kitten Season, and I really really really want it to be the beginning of “Adoption Season.” However, over the past three weeks since my unofficial announcement...

Thank you for all the warm and loving comments about Tiger Lily. As I’ve written on this blog many many times – the burden of a sorrow shared is lightened. It’s true. And being able to blog about the bad as well as the good helps me – keeps me... Continue reading

I’ve really struggled with this one. I’ve been through the deaths of so many animals – my own, Winnie’s Wishers, even fosters. But this loss has broken my heart in a very different way. Losing an animal, any animal, is rough. I do much better with the deaths of the... Continue reading

It was a long afternoon and night. My foster cat Tiger Lily died at midnight. I'm not prepared to write about it this morning. I'll try to pull the story together for tomorrow. Continue reading

You might remember that the minute we returned from our wonderful vacation to Florida in May, Husband went back to work and discovered a mom cat and her five kittens. Husband and I managed to trap the family of six and they came to one of my cat rooms. Husband’s... Continue reading

This week’s Wildlife Wednesday is about opossums only. That’s because there are updates to give and stories to tell. You might remember the three little opossums who came in together and have continued to be the best little “picture possums” ever. They are always together and seem to be always... Continue reading

On Thursday evening, I received a text. I hate to ask you, but would you happen to have an empty run in your kennel? It was the president (L) of the shelter board (the shelter where my daughters work). A couple of small towns over, a skinny Great Dane had... Continue reading

I’ve always been a hard worker. And if I can earn a dollar for a good cause, I’m sure willing to give it my all. I’ve supported several “causes” during my adult life. There are particular organizations I’ve given to because I believe in them and I think they do... Continue reading

I’ve been over-the-top busy this week getting a special project ready to launch this Saturday. The background is this – my daughters are the co-managers of a no-kill shelter about a half hour from where we live. I am a volunteer there as most of you know from the pictures... Continue reading

The newest addition to Wild Angels is a tiny baby squirrel. When Older Daughter took this baby, he was only one week old. We did not expect this one to live. He’d been with the person who found him for a couple of days, and there had been no proper... Continue reading

Winnie’s Wish has had an adoption! And not just ANY adoption. This sweet gal has been waiting over eight years for a real home. I heard from a friend (CN) during the first or second week of August. She said she had a friend who had “asked” about Winnie’s Wish... Continue reading

Periodically I go on an internal rant about all of the unspayed/unneutered dogs and cats in this country. As I sat down to write this post, I realized that making my internal rant external by writing it out wasn’t going to change anything. Obviously, if you’re reading this, you already...

I do this every year. When the first day of September arrives, I call it Fall. September in Southern Illinois is NOT Fall-like. Not the first part of the month anyway. Early September here feels about like August. And that’s HOT and HUMID. But TODAY the weather is cooperating with... Continue reading

Yesterday I did a “Wordless Wednesday” post (on a Tuesday), and before I even finished posting it I realized something. From the beginning of Wild Angels’ active season this year, I have been doing posts about Older Daughter’s wildlife rehabbing. For some reason (not planned) I did those Wild Angels...

I’ve mentioned before that some bloggers do “Wordless Wednesday” posts (on Wednesdays – smile). They are called “wordless” because they are just pictures that day. Well today I’m doing a “Wordless Wednesday” post, but I included the word “Almost” in the title because it’s “almost” Wednesday and because it’s “almost”... Continue reading

One year ago exactly (August 2015) we trapped a mom cat and her three kittens in my mom and dad’s backyard. They were straying in the neighborhood and the mom cat brought her kittens to my parents’ yard periodically. The story unfolds over several posts (and days) which is available... Continue reading

As I’ve mentioned many times, I do not have lots of “adoptable” cats here at Winnie’s Wish. I take the tougher cases and almost always need very special people to adopt them. At this point in time I really have only three cats who might be able to move into... Continue reading

Today I have an update on some cute little opossums (two sets), and I’ll also be introducing a couple of new Wild Angels. These three little possums are growing and staying healthy. It won’t be long before they will move to an outdoor enclosure. when they first arrived at Wild... Continue reading

Yesterday I posted about little Winnie’s Wisher – Star – and one of my foster kittens – Storm. Today is about two Previous Fosters – Charlie and Arrow. This is a Feel-Good post for your Tuesday. Charlie was an OLD cat with a bad ear and almost no teeth who... Continue reading

Star is the most recent addition to Winnie’s Wish. She was in very bad shape when I took her in. A couple of days ago, Older Daughter asked me about Star and the little foster kitten, Storm, who’s with her. When I reported that they were both doing well, Older... Continue reading

Yesterday I told you about Sammi, a cat who belonged to a family member who can no longer take care of her. So Sammi is now a part of OUR furry family. Well, there’s another furry addition here who ended up with us because a family member didn't feel she... Continue reading

(This post was planned for last Wednesday, but then my Sudsy died on Tuesday evening. This post was supposed to follow the post about Star and Storm recently moving into my upstairs cat room.) Late last fall, my mother-in-law fell ill so Husband went to her house every day to... Continue reading
