Well, I don’t know about you but I’m REALLY glad it’s March! Take a look at these pictures of the Winnie’s Wish cathouse. Which do you prefer? (from last Spring) These daffodil pictures were taken in Marches Past. Hard to believe, but Spring IS coming. And with it – an... Continue reading

Hello Friends!! I don’t blog on Fridays, but this is the last day of the Auction to benefit the Winnie’s Wish Building Fund. So I just want to say – If you haven’t been there yet, you should really visit. It is just fantastic! If you’ve bid on something, go... Continue reading

I’m going to get straight to this. Pilgrim tested positive again. When I found out yesterday afternoon, I thought I was handling it pretty well at first. However, I soon began to feel the weight of it. As I had already said, this is certainly not what I wanted for... Continue reading

I cannot help myself. It looks like I’ll be devoting this space to the Auction again today (with a note about Pilgrim at the end). Marg has added several new items and they are GREAT! So with only three days to go (the Auction ends Friday!) I’m asking you to... Continue reading

I am really excited about how well the Auction is going. I am so grateful to the people who entered items and to the people who are bidding on them. And of course I’m grateful to Marg for putting in all of this work to keep the Auction running. There... Continue reading

I mentioned at the end of last week that the Auction was going great. I also mentioned that Marg (Marg’s Animals), who is running the Auction, was in the path of an ice storm and lost power for several days. She has power (and heat!) again now. We can all... Continue reading

Pilgrim did not get his follow-up FeLV test yesterday. Due to a combination of bad roads and a lack of full employee coverage, they weren’t able to make their vet trip. Weather permitting, he may go tomorrow. If not, then next week. I don’t know if I am relieved that... Continue reading

Do you remember Pilgrim? Do you remember his story? And do you remember that he tested positive for FeLV? (His full story is in four posts: 11-25, 12-3, 12-4, 1-5 ) This is what he looked like when I took him as a foster. Pilgrim has been living in my... Continue reading

Wow what a Winter Storm! We got that foot of snow yesterday. Then last night we plunged into the deep freeze, so none of this snow is going anywhere soon. Husband made his way on treacherous roads to get our daughters to the shelter yesterday morning. Animals require care whether... Continue reading

If you are just tuning in, please read yesterday's (Sunday's) post first. We got that Winter Storm. Actually we are continuing to get the Winter Storm. We’re told this is the first wave with another wave right behind it. My internet is spotty and I don’t suspect I will have... Continue reading

It is Sunday afternoon and I am posting to my blog, because . . . there is a giant Winter Storm headed straight at us. Southern Illinois and Western Kentucky are in the path. There is a specific narrow band that extends less than an hour north and south of... Continue reading

The Auction is almost here. Monday is the day the wonderful women behind this Auction will launch it. It will run February 16 – February 27. This is what Ann (Zoolatry) sent out into the blogosphere: Coming soon ~ an auction for Winnie's Wish Building Fund. Winnie's Wish* is a... Continue reading

Sugar Cookie I have a Sugar Cookie who is sweet enough for ANYONE’s Valentine’s Day. Friends, please SHARE so that Sugar Cookie can be chosen by some wonderful person of her very own. I am at my maximum number in the cathouse. An arctic blast arrived overnight and plunged us... Continue reading

Valentine’s Week. What do you think of? I hope you think SWEET! Because I’m going to use that theme to highlight a couple of the SWEETEST cats anywhere. The last time I blogged about these two I titled that post – Cuddle Bug and Belly Rub. These are the nicknames... Continue reading

It’s February. Spring rolls in next month! So between this being the month of Love and next month ushering in Spring (otherwise known as the beginning of Kitten Season), February is the PERFECT month to hope for some adoptions. I will highlight several Wishers throughout the rest of this month.... Continue reading

A week from today begins the Auction to benefit the Winnie’s Wish Building Fund. Thanks to Ann of Zoolatry, THIS is what went out to dog and cat folks in the blogosphere. If you have an item to donate, email Marg (margaretmsan AT gmail DOT com). She needs a picture... Continue reading

I’ve mentioned before that my daughters work at a shelter in a town that also has a “pound.” The animal control officer of that pound works closely with the shelter to reduce the numbers of animals who must be euthanized. As with most shelters, the number of homeless animals always... Continue reading

You know that my fosters come from the shelter where my daughters work. The shelter is on the edge of town and is actually surrounded by businesses and even some homes. Directly behind the building, however, is a wooded area. I've written before that sometimes people dump animals on the... Continue reading

The start date for the auction to benefit the Winnie’s Wish building campaign has been moved from February 5 to February 16. This allows more time for anyone who wants to donate an item to the auction to get the information about that item to Marg. If you would like... Continue reading

I seriously cannot tell you how appreciated every single comment was on last Thursday’s blog post and on Facebook. I took comfort from EVERY word you left. I re-read them ALL over the weekend. I will not put you through the details of Duchess’ final hours. I will tell you... Continue reading

Sometimes I feel really bad about blogging. You people who read here are wonderful supportive folks who really care about the animals here. I’ve said so many times on this blog how much I appreciate your comments of comfort when I have lost a furry loved one or when I’m... Continue reading

I hate to put you on the roller coaster I’m riding right now. But there’s been no improvement with Duchess yet. Monday, I was relieved to have the vet tell me she thought we had a treatable condition going on. Duchess is on four medications. I knew she wouldn’t bounce... Continue reading

Duchess quit eating over the weekend. I have no idea why. I have the first appointment of the morning today. This is WAY too close to losing Tory. I really need for there to be an answer for Duchess that gets us THROUGH this. (Duchess’ story – click here.) See... Continue reading

Well, I feel really bad about my post yesterday. Clearly, the way I wrote about my tumble to the concrete left everyone with the wrong impression. You were all very kind to send best wishes to Canyon and to me. But I am 100% completely OK. I did crash and... Continue reading
