On Monday morning, I posted pictures and descriptions of five of my seven shelter foster kittens on the shelter’s Facebook page and on Petfinder. On Tuesday, a call came in for Casey. Yesterday morning I sent her off with Older to meet her new family. The couple who adopted her... Continue reading

Between Winnie’s Wish and the pouring on of foster kittens recently, there hasn’t been a mention of a dog. Usually in December I end up with dog and puppy fosters. But not so far this year. Still – it’s time for a Dose of Dogs. I don’t know how long... Continue reading

Yesterday I told you that I’m up to SEVEN foster kittens at the moment. We expect an onslaught during Spring Kitten Season. There are always more in the Fall. But December? I hate the thought of little babies out in the cold, trying to survive on their own, especially when... Continue reading

I currently have seven foster kittens. Storm and Tuna have been living in my upstairs “cat room.” Trudi has been living in my downstairs bathroom. I just introduced you to the two little fluffballs that were recently rescued from the alley behind Hardee’s. They are in the kennel kitten room.... Continue reading

ADOPTIONS. I know. I sound like a broken record. I wrote on Monday about how thrilled I would be to get Betty Lou and her three sons (Bojangles, Boy Blue, and Binks) into wonderful homes. There’s also the sweet Momma Monday. She and son Pippin are adoptable Wishers. Of course,... Continue reading

the night I got them the next day Last Wednesday I showed you a picture of my two newest foster kittens. This is their story. Do you remember little Victor? the kitten I fostered who went on a TV news show and was adopted by one of the newscasters? He... Continue reading

Today is Giving Tuesday. I LOVE this day. I think it’s so important. I believe it is incumbent upon those of us with blessed lives to give to our world and its inhabitants. So I will dedicate today’s post to sharing about Giving Tuesday. I’ve copied and pasted directly from... Continue reading

Did you survive Black Friday? Did you participate in Small Business Saturday? Are you dabbling in Cyber Monday TODAY? (If you’re shopping online today, I do have a book that makes a pretty nice gift for animal lovers . . . just sayin’.) Also – Andrea’s Insta-Auction ends at the... Continue reading

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving. I am thankful for far too much to write about in one blog post. But let me hit the highlights. I’m thankful for my animal family. It’s true that it has recently gotten smaller, but there are still so many wonderful animal personalities all around me, and... Continue reading

You might remember that I had two tiny foster kittens – Victor and Trudi. They were on a local television news broadcast and Victor got adopted. I worried about Trudi being all alone. And she was truly sad for a while. But I showered her with toys and even bought... Continue reading

The sweet shy Halo is back. Halo was adopted in 2012. But recently, due to a family injury and the need to move back-and-forth between two homes across the country from each other, Halo needed to come back here. This, of course, is exactly what I want to have happen... Continue reading

I blog about animals. I write about what happens in my own life. I love animals. If you read here, it’s because you love animals, too. I realize that what happens in my life isn’t important in the bigger scheme of things. I know that the actual events and relationships... Continue reading

What happened here Monday morning just after posting about Benji was so unlikely that I wouldn’t have, couldn’t have, predicted it. I know now that it started at 4am, although I didn’t know it at that time. We were still asleep. We both woke straight up and I was out... Continue reading

We lost one of our furry family members yesterday. I'm going to try to start writing about it sometime today. Hope to be back tomorrow. Continue reading

I don’t want to create any suspense in the saga of my sweet autistic Benji. Let me get right to the point. HE IS BETTER. This is NOT an outcome I was expecting. I want to share where we are and how we got here, but with one caveat. This... Continue reading

There will always be pain, but there will always be joy, too. Benji is breaking my heart. A very needed distraction has been watching Pipes acclimate to his new forever home. It brings a smile. From the moment I laid eyes on a little “lewis-faced” kitten hiding under my parents’... Continue reading

Let me start this post with a big thank you for your support and concern for my sweet Benji. Your comments are so kind. Things are not good. Right now I’m hanging all my hope on the introduction of the seizure medication. Yesterday, we also increased the prednisone. But it... Continue reading

Benji is my sweet little “autistic” dog. He came from the shelter where my daughters work (where he was terribly unhappy). He had some odd behaviors at the shelter which Younger Daughter had taken note of. He was certainly “odd” when he got here, too. But he definitely needed a... Continue reading

It's been a long night. My sweet autistic Benji started having seizures at 4:30pm yesterday and they continued all night. I was on the phone with two of my vets last night and I'm headed to the clinic this morning. Please send some positive thoughts and prayers Benji's way. Continue reading

On November 1st, I said that I feel like The Holidays arrive on that day. In the past I tried to wait to start Christmas shopping until Thanksgiving was over. But I discovered that with my busy life, waiting til then meant I couldn’t possibly be ready for Christmas by... Continue reading

I’ve recently been fostering eight shelter kitties: four half-grown feral kittens who were dumped at the shelter where my daughters work; a kitten who was keeping my little Wisher (Star) company, and when Star was adopted I took another kitten from the shelter to keep that kitten company; and two...

As always - thank you so very very much for all of the loving comments about the passing of my DiMarno. I’ve said it many times, and I will many more times – I am lucky to have a place to share my stories of loss. Having your understanding and... Continue reading

Two years ago I know it’s Halloween. I had planned to repost a very Halloween-ish story today about Younger Daugther’s Magic cat. But I lost my DiMarno on Friday. So I will devote today to him. It’s odd that I had just written the post about how when DiMarno moved... Continue reading

Here is the link to the National Cat Day site. http://www.nationalcatday.com/ National Cat Day is a day devoted to . . . . CATS! It’s a day that I like to celebrate because it stands for so many of the things I believe in – like continuing to work towards... Continue reading

Wednesdays have been devoted to Wildlife, but as I mentioned last week, things are quieting down at Wild Angels now. And that’s good. Older Daughter needs a bit of a break. The title today is Wordless Wednesday (a post of pictures) but you people know me better than that. I... Continue reading
