In 2016, Fairyland was in full bloom on the ninth of March. The year before, in 2015, we were having a blizzard on the ninth of March. It was after the twentieth before the daffodils burst into a sea of yellow that year. I’ve definitely seen daffodils blooming in February.... Continue reading

I believe it was just yesterday. I said I was hoping maybe not too many homeless cats would “cross my path” this year. Omen? You might remember that quite a few homeless and feral cats and kittens have come from the area near my mother-in-law’s home. In fact, many many... Continue reading

I had an entire post written for today. I wrote it yesterday afternoon. It was a bummer. When I re-read it this morning as I was about to post to my blog, I decided to abandon that bummer post. It was born of worries concerning Angel and what should have... Continue reading

I’ll get right to it. Angel DID survive the surgery. For that I am SO relieved and deeply grateful. Unfortunately, there was nothing discovered that could be fixed. The Xrays showed nothing other than increased soft tissue in the left sinus. Dr. A said that could be mucous or possibly... Continue reading

Today Angel is having the surgery – a sort of experimental surgery inclusive of several possible procedures. I am going to be a wreck today while I’m waiting to hear something. I desperately want something to work, for one of the procedures to bring Angel some relief. But more than... Continue reading

Do you remember a little Wisher named Star? She was adopted and is definitely living The Good Life. Before she was adopted, I had my daughters pick out a shelter kitten who needed a little “extra” to be a friend for Star. They gave me Storm. She was a beautiful... Continue reading

Today’s post doesn’t have anything to do with the Winnie’s Wishers, my own animals, or even any foster cats or dogs of mine. But it’s such a great story that I just had to share it with you. The day after Christmas a momma dog and her five puppies came... Continue reading

I had a long foster kitten season this year. Not only did I foster more kittens than usual, but the big bunch of them came in the Fall rather than in the Spring. It was wonderful to have many of them adopted straight from my home into their forever homes.... Continue reading

Angel will go for her “surgery” a week from today. She is still eating well (her soupy canned food mixture that I make and her much-loved Bisques). I’m becoming more nervous every day that ticks by. It's not as much the worry about whether or not this surgery/procedure will be... Continue reading

Betty Lou was adopted during the Holidays. She came to Winnie’s Wish with her three sons: Bojangles, Boy Blue, and Binks. Bojangles was adopted during the Holidays, too. That leaves only two members of The B Family here at Winnie’s Wish – Binks and Blue. This is the pair I... Continue reading

This is for all of you out there with more than one cat and for whom it does not always run smoothly. I lost my two most senior kitties a few months ago (Suds and DiMarno). It wasn’t long after the second loss that I brought Pipes into our family.... Continue reading

Last week I told you that THIS week I would be taking Angel to the vet. She had a scheduled appointment for this Wednesday. But I ended up having to take her last Thursday. When I saw Angel early Thursday morning, her breathing sounded worse. But the real concern was... Continue reading

I didn’t blog on Thursday of last week because I had such so much to do – all of the regular stuff plus several extra things – that had to be accomplished on Thursday and Friday. As it turned out, Thursday morning’s schedule had to be cleared so that I... Continue reading

Which of these things would you be willing to accept if you were searching to adopt a new kitty? One with a chronic runny eye? A kitty who bites (hard) ? A kitty who occasionally has a sneezing fit? A kitty who is not fond of other cats? A kitty... Continue reading

Last week Cynthia P asked for an update on Angel. So here you go Cynthia. I wish it was better news. I blogged about Angel in December when I was describing a battle we were having with her health. What I at first thought was some type of allergy has... Continue reading

I spent all of last week pushing for adoptions of my Wishers. And I spent some time before that plugging for my fosters. Oh, the joy of wonderful forever homes. I cannot tell you how I wish I would receive one of those heart-stopping inquiries - a perfect person out... Continue reading

As I move around in the cathouse, working and interacting with the Wishers, I learn things about them. Unfortunately (as I explained in the post about The B Family) what I see here does not always translate into the experience of the adopter. Hope and Bojangles were both so outgoing...

One of the definitions of partner is - a person with whom one shares an intimate relationship; one member of a couple. Well, remove “person” and replace with “cat” and you have the permanent partners who live at Winnie’s Wish. These two pairs are Wishers I will ONLY adopt out... Continue reading

As I’ve been saying recently, Winnie’s Wish is currently full of “less-adoptable” kitties. With a capacity for 25, and 23 currently in residence, I am unable to save future homeless kitties. I could take in two at this point, thanks to the adoptions of Betty Lou and Bojangles at the... Continue reading

During one of my Fall Yard Sales to benefit the shelter and my own Winnie’s Wish, the board president showed up with two little kittens and told me their story. She had received a call from a law enforcement unit that two kittens were in a police vehicle. And by... Continue reading

I’ve been so happy to have lots of foster kittens recently adopted straight from my home into their forever homes. There was Victor, then Casey, Tasha, Cashmere, and finally Leo the Lion. I’m a little sad for Trudi because she still hasn’t been Chosen. But I’m still hoping. Today, however,... Continue reading

When I was writing about Rube, I realized something. What we gave to Rube is what I wish someone (lots of someones) would give to some of the Wishers. Rube didn’t give much back. I didn’t care. I knew he was safe and fed and indoors. And I knew I... Continue reading

This is what happens when you have several senior furry family members. Death visits in series more quickly than a heart can adjust. Rube was assisted to The Bridge on Wednesday afternoon. About a week earlier, Husband and I noticed that Rube would suddenly cry out – like something had... Continue reading

Sorry for the whiplash. Yesterday morning’s post was SO happy, but we lost another senior yesterday afternoon. It was unexpected. I hope to talk about it on Monday. Continue reading
