This is my last post before I take a couple of weeks off from blogging. For several days I will be in my precious palm tree paradise. Those of you who know me know that palm trees are one of my favorite favorite things. It is always SO hard to... Continue reading

LOVE sharing updates on the cathouse addition with you. While my husband worked on the roof, my dad installed some of the windows. Those windows look amazing in place. And that roof might not look exciting, but it truly is. Husband got the room completely “in the dry” so we... Continue reading

I received a box in the mail last week from California. It came from the home of two previous Wishers – Hershey and (Frosting) Felicity. mr and her husband adopted Hershey and Felicity TWO years ago and the box came in celebration of their second Gotcha Day. You can read... Continue reading

December was the last time I did a post about Sienna. Today I want to highlight her again for adoption. What I said about her five months ago is still true. So I’m just going to copy & paste what I wrote in December, but I’ve added new pictures. I... Continue reading

You all know that Andrea (Celestial Kitties) is a BIG supporter of Winnie’s Wish. She’s done so much for this rescue that it would take the entire post to go back over it all. Of course, her BIGGEST gift was the gift to three Wishers of a wonderful forever home.... Continue reading

I love, love, love to give you updates on the new cathouse addition. The first great thing that has happened is that my dad has transformed two of those “junk store” windows into something wonderful. I paid only $20 for the both of those windows. Of course, if you really... Continue reading

May is the month we take our one and only vacation. It’s the ONLY time all year long when I stop working. My business is a boarding kennel, so that’s animals 24/7. Then there’s Winnie’s Wish. And there’s the foster work I do for the shelter where my daughters work.... Continue reading

I haven’t posted about Traci Mae in over six months. There’s been a bit of a change in Traci Mae since then. In fact, that change occurred when I did all of the shuffling of cats to reduce the bullying we had been dealing with. To get us started, let... Continue reading

Let’s talk construction. (BIG smile) Husband has been busy. You might remember that the roof on the existing cathouse was damaged over the Winter. During the time of the Building Fundraiser for the New Addition, we were hoping to get enough extra to fix that damaged roof. In the meantime,... Continue reading

Thank you for your wonderful supportive comments on yesterday’s post about Slate. Today, an update on the baby bunnies that Older Daughter took into her Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab. They have now ALL been successfully released. Older Daughter was as shocked as anyone that she kept all seven alive until... Continue reading

On Friday, I received a message like none I’d ever received before. You remember that Slate went to his new home on Saturday April 18th. A day or two into it, I received word that he was leaning into their hands when they petted him. I knew he was a... Continue reading

I think you will remember Pilgrim. He is a foster of mine from the shelter where my daughters work. Pilgrim came to me as a very sick kitten. It wasn’t long before he was discovered to be FeLV+. It broke my heart. I knew he would have a MUCH lower... Continue reading

Everybody was very much invested in seeing the Building Fundraiser succeed. So now I’m excited every time I can post an update on the actual “building” of the addition. There has been more progress. Yesterday morning was rain-free. My dad and husband worked until lunchtime and got the other two... Continue reading

The title of yesterday’s post was “Good Stuff.” If the “Stuff” in yesterday’s post was “Good,” then today’s post HAD to be titled “Best Stuff.” One of the things I’m writing about today would have to be considered somewhat “tentative” at this point. I will explain, but FIRST – here’s... Continue reading

We’re still having more days with rain than without. HOWEVER, Husband worked on the new addition on Friday, and then Husband and my dad worked again on Saturday morning. Take a look! I love seeing the skeleton of a wall go up. It gets so real at that point. Good... Continue reading

If you’ve been reading here for a while, you might remember the West Woods Family. I didn’t know it when I rescued the first one (Yardley), but there were three more family members to come. Slowly, I captured each one and with each new rescue, the relationships began to be... Continue reading

Older Daughter became licensed as a wildlife rehabilitator last year. Her operation is called Wild Angels. Spring starts the wildlife rehab season, and it extends through the Fall. Of course, a rehabber might receive an injured animal at any time during the year. The baby season, however, starts NOW. My... Continue reading

It rained here all day yesterday. But the weekend was absolutely gorgeous. Sunshine, fantastic temperatures, beautiful blooming trees. It was the perfect weekend to start building the Winnie’s Wish Addition! The pictures tell the story today. In this picture you can see where the new addition will be in relation... Continue reading

I kept the trap set all weekend long. Nothing. I might see this cat again, or it might have been passing through. This time of year you can’t help but think about kittens. I sure hope this wasn’t a pregnant mom with no safe place to deliver. Anyway – if... Continue reading

Yesterday morning I got up really early. I had an early drop-off at the kennel and a TON of stuff to get done before leaving with Sugar Cookie to meet her new (trial) parents. I was in the kitchen staring out the windows towards the river. It was just getting... Continue reading

Early on Easter morning I checked my email. There was an odd notification from something called Pets.Overstock.com. I would have hit delete automatically, thinking it was some type of ad. But the subject read: Adoption Inquiry about Sugar Cookie. I STILL thought it was some kind of weird advertising thing... Continue reading

It was time for Pilgrim to move on. He had been living in my bathroom (alone) for months. He had become attached to me and my husband – only. Sometimes when the bathroom door would swing open, one of my cats (usually Evers) would be sitting right there dying to... Continue reading

On Thursday I told you about all of the rain coming for the end of last week. We got it. Then Saturday and Sunday came and went without rain, and things were just beginning to dry up a little. Now we have rain predicted for every day this week. Hello... Continue reading

I was beyond excited when I was putting together yesterday’s post. You know how I felt when I started the GoFundMe Building Campaign. I really thought it was just too tall an order. Andrea kept telling me that this was not “too much money” - especially since if we had... Continue reading

Did you visit this blog yesterday? Are you here to help me through what I alluded to in that post? Here is what I wrote yesterday: You know I would much rather share good news with you than bad. But you’ve stuck it out with me through thick and thin.... Continue reading
