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

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. I know you’ll stick with me through this, too. Luckily this does not involve the health or safety of any animal. Please stop in tomorrow and... Continue reading

Yesterday afternoon, Older Daughter came over to have me help her set up a Facebook page for her wildlife rehabilitation work. We got some information onto the page and loaded some pictures that I had taken during her 2014 season. Then we opened the page to the public. Spring is... Continue reading

I wrote about Smokey in February to highlight him for adoption. I said that he was being bullied. I really had nowhere to move him and I mentioned that this poor guy is one of the reasons I was SO hoping to get an addition built onto the cathouse (which... Continue reading

I hate to even mention on the blog when I am sick or injured. This is a blog about dogs and cats. What is going on with me is not story material. However – this back thing is more than likely “related” to dogs and cats. I turn 55 this... Continue reading

My back went out yesterday. At this point, I can't sit at the computer and type. Be back to blogging asap. Continue reading

Yesterday Winnie’s Wish had an adoption (and it wasn’t just one, it was a PAIR!) Sometime in the near future I will update you on how it’s going there. I’m sure the kitties will be hiding for at least a few days. And thank you for the TON of comments... Continue reading

Did you visit here yesterday? Did you guess it? Do I drag this out or just announce it? (drumroll . . . ) Winnie’s Wish has an adoption!! Whoo hoo!! I am posting to my blog this beautiful Wednesday morning. Then I am loading up and heading out to deliver... Continue reading

What’s today all about? LUCK. There are lots of LUCKY things that could happen here. It would be wonderful to get a home for one of my fosters before they have to go to the shelter. It would be wonderful to inch even closer to our goal in the GoFundMe... Continue reading

No matter what the problems are with The Wish List, IT STAYS! Of course, I’ve never actually considered getting rid of The Wish List. That’s why I asked for your input. I am grateful for all of your comments and emails offering suggestions to help with some of the issues.... Continue reading

Yesterday morning I posted to my blog while drinking my coffee. Then I opened my email to see if anything had come in overnight. There was an email from Andrea (Celestial Kitties) that said “Happy Blogoversary!” I sat there staring at that those words. Well, good grief. I’d missed my... Continue reading

Let me start with thanks for your many emails and comments on yesterday’s post. I appreciate your suggestions (and the fact that you really seem to understand my frustration). I won’t abandon the Wish List concept. It has help Winnie’s Wish SO much that I am determined to find a... Continue reading

The Winnie’s Wish Wish List has been an absolutely WONDERFUL thing. Besides being thrilling to have supplies delivered right to my shelter, the items that arrive here are SO needed and appreciated. When the UPS and FedEx trucks could reach us again after this last Winter Storm, Winnie’s Wish received... Continue reading

I blogged on Thursday about Toast. I need adoptions so badly right now I could literally start screaming. But while I put up my post Thursday without any mention of the weather, we were dealing (as so many Americans were) with another Winter Storm. As I’ve mentioned before, I can... Continue reading

Toast is one of four siblings who came to me as feral kittens. It took a while for this group to become tame. Toast was the first. Toast is an absolutely gorgeous animal. If you were going to adopt a cat based on looks alone, this guy would get top... Continue reading

I only have two foster cats from the shelter right now – Pilgrim and Cato. Now that Pilgrim has had the second FeLV test and it was positive, he will move to the FeLV room at the shelter. This is not just for the safety of the FeLV negative population... Continue reading

You remember Canyon – yes? He has been here with me since the early part of November. You can read the whole story here. But let me just copy & paste something that was said about Canyon by the people who were initially looking for a shelter to take him.... Continue reading

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
