Unbelievable is the word I have been using to describe the story I am about to tell. There is another word that fits this event even better – but if I told you that word right now, it would ruin part of the story. So let me stick with “unbelievable”... Continue reading

His name is Only. Because that’s the word that best defines my relationship with him. He is an Only – no mom, no littermates. In one week he and I have bonded so completely that he believes I am his mom AND his siblings, and he is definitely my baby.... Continue reading

Last Wednesday was an unusual day to say the least. It was a day suddenly filled with fosters. But also, something happened here that hit me as, well - unbelievable is the word that comes to mind. There have been other “unbelievable” things occur over the years. This one ranks... Continue reading

Last Thursday I highlighted Sienna because she is definitely (finally) ready for a home of her own. A few weeks ago, I wrote about how Sienna and Snowflake were two cats, close in age, who had remained feral despite the YEAR they have been here. But recently, at almost the... Continue reading

I foster at least one of the shelter’s canines almost continuously. Of course, I think they’re all great. But there are always some that steal my heart. Blondie was one of them. I foster the shelter’s dogs for various reasons. Sometimes they are recovering from a surgery or illness. Sometimes... Continue reading

My great hope is that someone wonderful will grab this Sugar Cookie SOON. It would be amazing for her not to grow up in the cathouse but in a real home of her own. She is a living doll. BEAUTIFUL eyes. SO sweet. Take a look at our recent love... Continue reading

On Thursday I posted about Sienna moving from the unadoptable/feral category to the ADOPTABLE CATegory. And today I want to share with you the beginnings of another potential taming. You remember there are four kittens from two litters that we trapped back in June. I lost two of the kittens... Continue reading

Tuesday’s news was awesome. Two more Winnie’s Wishers off to live The Good Life! My sidebar has two categories: kitties who are looking for forever homes and kitties who have found forever homes. As I move Autumn and Circe into the FOUND-a-home category, I’m pleased to announce that I have... Continue reading

Before I ask you to help me figure something out, I want to mention this. After posting on Monday about the fulfilled Wish from the Wish List, the one without identification, I received an email from the sender. It turns out that it was a long-time Friend of Winnie’s Wish... Continue reading

You already know what my favorite thing is. AN ADOPTION. It doesn’t matter what kind – one cat or two. (Or three at the same time which is how my sister and brother-in-law did it!). Then there’s a special kind of adoption that happens when someone who has already adopted... Continue reading

Well, it feels good to get back to this blog. As I mentioned two weeks ago, my husband was scheduled for surgery on Monday July 28. A couple of days in the hospital and then home. Getting home was great, but of course those first few days are packed full... Continue reading

I posted yesterday that I would be heading to the vet with Jane as soon as they could get me in. We were given an appointment time of eleven fifteen. I had been having a really difficult time with the fear that I wouldn’t know when to take Jane to... Continue reading

This blog has not been a very interesting place to visit recently. Between the busy-ness here and now Jane going downhill, I haven’t had the time to write and post the way I’d like to. Of course, the fun stories are born of actual rescues taking place. Those stories are... Continue reading

Thank you for your kind comments about my Janie Dog. I will keep you posted. Today I’m going to combine two subjects: Christmas in July and an update on the one tame and three feral kittens. I had planned to update you on these four darlings last week. I got... Continue reading

Last week turned out to be one of the busiest weeks of the Summer. As I’ve mentioned, Summer is my busy season for the kennel. In addition, some family issues put me behind and I ended up not blogging the second half of last week. While I was away from... Continue reading
Oh, dear. Too busy to post this morning. Let's hope keeping Peter Pan and Tinkerbell at the top will get them a home. ( Or Autumn. Or Sugar Cookie.) Have a good Tuesday. Continue reading

I’m meeting myself coming and going. This is the busiest season for my boarding kennel. I haven’t had time to write much. Of course, my biggest, greatest, most important, number one, top goal is to find homes for Winnie’s Wishers, so this week I’ll do some highlights and hope, hope,... Continue reading

I’ve had a couple of breakthroughs in the cathouse just in the last couple of weeks. If not for these, I would be tempted to say that the current three feral kittens (Peeta, Finnick, and Prim) might live out their lives in the cathouse. But two previously quite feral Winnie’s... Continue reading

Sweet Autumn is the Winnie’s Wish calico. Her two family members, Truly and Shiloh, were adopted this year. HURRAY for that!! But Autumn is still here, and she follows me all around in the cathouse EVERY time I go in. It would be wonderful to have Autumn chosen for adoption.... Continue reading

Sugar Cookie continues to be healthy. She was always the most active of the three in her litter. She plays, talks, and LOVES to eat. She is precious and cute beyond words. I would like to get Sugar Cookie into a home while she is still a baby. It would... Continue reading

The four remaining kittens – Sugar Cookie, Peeta, Prim, and Finnick – are all still well. Dr. O said when I lost Dreamy and Punkin that he felt like it might have been a structural problem – that something internal had not developed correctly. If that was the case, then... Continue reading

Just over a week ago, I received an email from someone interested in adopting from Winnie’s Wish. In the email Chesney said this - I found you on petfinder.com and felt really drawn to your mission. I was pretty sure I liked this young woman already. As I always do,... Continue reading

First of all, you people are ALWAYS wonderful. You are a gift to me. I hated sharing such an awful story yesterday on this blog. I would certainly much rather tell you happy stories. But as always, you came through with your comments and emails and made me feel extremely... Continue reading

I’m not sure how to start this post. Late last night, I wrote and wrote and wrote. Then I ended up erasing the whole thing. There’s just no way to write a normal-length post about what has happened here. I’m hanging in limbo right now, waiting to see if this... Continue reading
