One of my foster kittens was adopted from the shelter. I had the group - Wally, Tigger, Tiger, Arlo and Zane. Zane was the black-and-white one. And he has been Chosen. This couple went into the kitten room at the shelter and interacted with the kitties. They fell in love... Continue reading

I know yesterday’s story about Lou was sad. But now that she is at the shelter, she has a chance at a loving Forever Home. I’ll keep you posted. Today’s story is sad, too. But the happy ending is included. Usually, Older Daughter gets her abandoned and injured wildlife from... Continue reading

Over the years, I’ve mostly blogged about animals I’m trying to rescue or have rescued and are living here or are fosters for a while. But occasionally, I’ve blogged about an animal that will never be in my home or on my property. It’s usually when I’ve learned of an... Continue reading

We’ve had Arnold the Pig for several years. You might remember that this past spring we had the opportunity to adopt a pig pal for Arnold. Arnold had to be neutered which ended up being really hard on him. But he recovered and he and Annie were eventually introduced. Arnold... Continue reading

Last week I shared pictures of the three-legged opossum and her SIX baby opossums. Mom came out of her little house and Older Daughter was able to get a picture of the babies still in the house. Six of them, right? Wrong. Older has since counted seven babies. She has... Continue reading

Last week I wrote about the need for adoptions of felines this time of year in shelters. I have beaten my brains out advertising my foster kittens on the shelter’s Facebook page. Skye, who is a special needs kitten, did get adopted. Then Pogo, who is a long-haired kitten, also... Continue reading

Welcome to another Wildlife Wednesday. Older Daughter has sent me updated pictures of some of the crew at Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab. There are updates on the three-legged momma opossum (and her babies), the one single baby opossum, and two NEW additions. But before I start sharing opossum pictures, here’s... Continue reading

Periodically, I preach to the choir. Certainly if you are reading here, you already believe in most of the things I believe in when it comes to dogs and cats. I believe in spay and neuter. I believe in no-kill shelters. And I believe in ADOPTION. Kitten Season brings me... Continue reading

Good news is always nice. We are about to get over the hump as far as the terrible mystery eye disease that attacked many of the kittens at the shelter and the group I have here in my bathroom – Weeble, Tad, Enoch, and Pogo. At first it looked like... Continue reading

Last week I wrote about Older losing three of her seven baby raccoons to some type of illness. She took the babies to her vet. There was never a definitive diagnosis. It was scary to lose babies to something she didn’t know how to fight. Her veterinary clinic arranged some... Continue reading

Last Tuesday I was reporting about things that were unpleasant to say the least. Our own Amelia was sick. The mystery eye disease had hit my bathroom full of foster kittens. And Older was losing baby raccoons. I’ll address the raccoon situation tomorrow in my Wildlife Wednesday post. Today I’m... Continue reading

Even with the devastating loss of three baby raccoons, there is plenty to be thankful for at Wild Angels. In the business of wildlife rehab, there is often more loss than success. All successful releases are cause for celebration. Wildlife babies raised without their mothers are always at risk of... Continue reading

When I was blogging last Tuesday and Wednesday about foster kittens and Older’s wildlife, we were still in a good place. It now feels like that was weeks ago. Things took a downward turn at the end of last week and just kept getting worse. The problem was with my... Continue reading

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
