I know you remember Angel. She’s the white cat who was thrown out when the owners died and the contents of the house were being sold. There are several posts that tell her story. Here they are in chronological order. Two White Dogs; One White Cat How? Meant to Be... Continue reading

*Note. Let me start this post with a warning. The description of what was wrong with the cat is graphic and might be hard for some people to read. Husband was at work on Sunday evening. At some point during his shift, I got a text from him. Call me.... Continue reading

The last time I did a post about Older Daughter’s Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab, I was introducing you to new baby raccoons, a fawn, and a couple of baby birds. Today, there is a new introduction to make and updates all around. Three weeks ago, there were raccoons who were... Continue reading

Two weeks ago I told you the story of the mom cat and five kittens that we rescued from my husband’s place of employment at the end of last month. (That story took four posts to tell and begins on 6/13/16.) Thought I’d do a picture update for you today.... Continue reading

Before I was able to get away for my wonderful vacation, some events had accumulated into what felt like a sign for me to reconsider what I do. As it turns out, I was just really tired and stressed and way too negative. I actually realized that before I ever... Continue reading

Here’s what’s going on . . . On Friday morning I discovered that our internet wasn’t working. I reported it and was told there was a problem with something on the tower that serves my tiny little geographical area. The really disappointing part was that the employee I was speaking...

The rescue mission at my husband’s place of employment started off with a bang. Three of the five kittens were trapped almost immediately. The next day we got mom. We also got a “bonus cat” that we certainly did not expect. In my kennel cat room there was a cage... Continue reading

The next day was Tuesday. Husband had gone to work on Sunday to discover mom cat and kittens. On Monday, three of the kittens were caught quickly and easily. But that’s where things changed. Husband got off work Monday night at midnight and put the trap in his vehicle. Tuesday... Continue reading

The final travel day home from our vacation was on a Sunday; Husband had to work the evening shift that very day when we got home. When he got to work he contacted me because a tabby cat who had disappeared a couple of months before was back at his... Continue reading

(Note – I left you last Thursday with a tease about some more good news that would be on the blog today. I’ll actually do that post NEXT Monday. In order to tell the whole story of the latest rescue mission, I’ll need all four days of blogging this week.)... Continue reading

Just a few days before we left for our vacation, I wrote a sad post about Cato. Here is some of what I wrote. You remember that Cato went from my cathouse into a home. Cato is a cat who actually belonged to the shelter where my daughters work, but... Continue reading

I mentioned last week that we came home to an IMMEDIATE rescue mission. It will require more than one post to tell that story so I’ll get started on that next week. But there is another type of rescue that is close to my heart, and that is the mission... Continue reading

Yesterday I shared my story about my 15-year-old Suds and his recent odd health issues. He was certainly not one of the animals here on my Worry List for vacation – at least not until a day and a half before we left. But Benji, my autistic-like dog, WAS on... Continue reading

Last week I wrote on this blog how I am making a concerted effort to worry less. This decision came about as a result of being far away on vacation while my precious family members went through a nightmare back home without me. Once that was behind us, and I... Continue reading

I am a fan of flora & fauna. I enjoy it here in my own part of the world. And I enjoy it on vacation, too. Part of the reason we take our vacation in Florida is because I love, love, love palm trees. I realize many of you are... Continue reading

Hello Friends! We’ve been back from our vacation to Florida for about a week and a half. I have lots to share with you. Let me start by addressing the issue I was grappling with right before we left. I had been feeling kind of low about a string of... Continue reading

Many of you have left comments on the blog or emailed me that you are wishing me a restful and wonderful vacation. I am on my way and will do my best. We will only be gone about ten days, but when we return the big annual cleaning is on... Continue reading

First let me say thank you for the comments I received on yesterday’s post. They are insightful and very much appreciated. Oddly, yesterday afternoon as I was looking back for a needed link, I stumbled across a post I’d written after returning from Florida last year. It caught my attention... Continue reading

As I mentioned yesterday, I am about to leave home to take my one and only vacation of the year. There are lots of stressors that come with leaving. But I go. I go to relax, renew, refresh. A few days ago, I thought I would also be re-assessing the... Continue reading

I simply remember my favorite things And then I don't feel . . . so bad (Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II) This planet we’re riding around on contains some of my favorite things. Dogs and cats, of course. ALL animals actually. The flowers I bring to my deck each... Continue reading

My apologies. It’s been a rough week with some family health problems. I just have not had the time to sit and write. Gonna leave you this week with a couple of pictures that define my life. See you next week. At least one of those days I’m going to... Continue reading

This has been a REALLY busy few days. No time to do a nice long new post. So I’m going back in time with a link to a post from a year ago. The third room addition to the cathouse (the orange trimmed room in the picture) did not exist... Continue reading

It’s been a busy Spring baby season for Older Daughter. Baby squirrels and baby opossums. Last week – two new arrivals. The first to arrive was a baby raccoon – the first this year. The story is a very strange one indeed. The person who brought the raccoon to Older... Continue reading

One of my dogs is Benji. He’s an odd one. Always has been. My family members and I have talked about Benji’s personality and tried to put a finger on just what it is. We’ve decided about the closest we can come to a term that explains him is Autistic.... Continue reading

Today I just want to invite anyone who is interested to re-visit the post I did about this Winnie’s Wish family – Momma Monday, Clover, and Pippin. I finally did the story about Pipes yesterday, explaining why he is NOT on my “adoptables” list. A reminder today that Monday, Clover,... Continue reading
