OK, I know I left you with an incomplete story last Thursday. But that final chapter will have to wait until tomorrow because . . . KARLY’S APPLICATION WAS APPROVED!! We heard late on Friday afternoon that Karly’s Wild Angels Rehab application for an incubator fundraiser HAS BEEN APPROVED BY... Continue reading

On Monday Husband loaded some garbage into the bucket of his tractor to take to our dumpster. We have a dumpster primarily because of my business – the kennel. When there are several garbage bags of used kitty litter ready to go, he loads them into the tractor bucket to... Continue reading

Last Saturday night I was completely shocked to look out a window near my computer at nine o’clock at night and see a bobtail cat on my deck. As I said on Monday, I have to believe that this is some relative to the two bobtail Wishers who were part... Continue reading

I have something REALLY exciting to talk to you about. As you know, my Older Daughter – Karly – has her very own wildlife rehab called Wild Angels. She is a certified Vet Tech and a state licensed rehabber. What I haven’t talked about much is that she funds her... Continue reading

My plan for today was to do a quick post about getting three Wishers spayed last week, and then to make sure I invited you to stop by tomorrow when I’m going to talk about something exciting concerning Older Daughter’s Wild Angels wildlife rehab. And I’m still going to do... Continue reading

You remember Momma Monday and her three kittens. We trapped all four in my parents’ backyard. They were roaming in the neighborhood and would have had lives of struggle and continuous reproduction for as long as they managed to live. They became Wishers last Summer in August. Well, it’s time.... Continue reading

We’ve had Bird TV here at our house for years and years. There are multiple feeders just outside of a couple of windows. Our own cats have been entertained well and often. Not long ago while cleaning in the cathouse, I snapped some pictures of Kizzie, Bunny, and Yardley on... Continue reading

Some of you might remember that there was once a small feral cat colony near my mother-in-law’s house. In fact, several Wishers came from there over the years. My mother-in-law and her neighbor across the road are the only two homes there. Close by is a gas station/convenience mart near... Continue reading

The region I live in was the location for the opening act of the monster Winter Storm that swept through part of the nation this weekend. Right up until it hit, our local weather forecast showed the storm just missing my little part of the world. I went to bed... Continue reading

Before I start today’s post of updates, a quick word about a brand new development here. We have snow and ice this morning. We’ve had below average temps for several days. So what occurred yesterday and last night is a blessing for a brand new Wisher. That’s right. Just on... Continue reading

If you read yesterday’s post, you know that I had been trying to trap a dumpster cat on an exit just off the interstate. On my last night there, I spoke to the employees in that exit’s gas station. They told me there wasn’t one “dumpster cat” but rather an... Continue reading

I left you last Thursday with a story only half-told. I had spent a week making the one-hour round trip to an interstate exit that was home to a gas station and a Dairy Queen. It was also home to a stray cat that I was determined to trap. But... Continue reading
Last Thursday Husband and I drove to a halfway point between Winnie’s Wish and the home of Nisha and Yardley’s adopter (A). The meeting spot was a Dairy Queen just off the interstate. There was also a gas station on this exit. We pulled into the Dairy Queen parking lot... Continue reading

There have been five cats recently at the TOP of my Adoption Wish List. Nisha and Yardley crave attention so desperately. They are two of the best cats ANYWHERE. Then there is the pair Dora and Jaws. These two youngsters were allowed to grow up in my home (MY mistake)... Continue reading

You people are wonderful. The most wonderful that exist on this Earth. I can’t thank you enough for your comments on the post about Peter Pan. How many times have I said on this blog – YOU make the joys more joyful and the sorrows easier to bear. I’m relieved... Continue reading

Peter Pan is gone. The whole thing played out over less than three days. I went back through my blog to find the post I did about first finding out that Peter Pan had Kidney Disease. I wrote it back at the beginning of October. As I read back through... Continue reading

It’s amazing what has happened with Winnie’s Wish over these past few years. I’ve written about it before so all I’ll say at this point is just how grateful I am to have the support system that I now do. Andrea (Celestial Kitties) is a fantastic fundraiser. There are Wish... Continue reading

Lots of animal bloggers do something called Wordless Wednesdays. There are pictures only (or sometimes pictures with very few words) on their Wednesday posts. I’m pretty sure I’m incapable of producing a blog post with no words at all. But today’s post is as close to a Wordless Wednesday as... Continue reading

I’m sure you will remember that we built an addition onto the cathouse – a wonderful, much-needed third room. You might also remember the short history of this new room’s inhabitants. At first there was only Smokey, Sallie, and Cato in the room. Cato is a foster cat from the... Continue reading

Happy 2016! I hope your holidays were wonderful! I’m sure I said this last year, and it’s worth saying again – I don’t make a bunch of resolutions because in the past (when I was younger and more willing to commit) I rarely fulfilled them. So my resolutions are now... Continue reading
