Over the weekend Older Daughter’s Wild Angels Rehab took in two new babies. When I mentioned this on Monday (here on this blog), both were still alive. But later that day, Older Daughter lost one of her babies. The other baby is still hanging in the balance. This is really... Continue reading

The last two little fluff balls I was fostering were Maleficent and Percy. Percy had a really bad eye. He was on an oral antibiotic and eye drops, but the eye was not improving. The vet had instructed Older Daughter to get Percy back in if the eye stayed the... Continue reading

Remember these two little shelter kittens I was fostering? Well they’ve been adopted. TOGETHER! Yippee! When Older Daughter asked me to foster these two, one of the problems I was to work on was how afraid and NOT people-friendly little Farley was. He came around beautifully. I posted pictures of...

Last Thursday I wrote about how Winnie’s Wish is both a shelter and a sanctuary. There are cats here who need sanctuary. They will be allowed to live here as long as they need to – until they become “adoptable” and the right homes come along for them. There are... Continue reading

So I received a notice that this Friday (June 19) is International Box Day. Ever heard of it? I had not. However, I HAVE heard of lots and lots of cats who LOVE to get into boxes. In fact, I have my very own Box Cat. My Suds has been... Continue reading

We continue to make progress on the addition to the Winnie’s Wish cathouse. I’ve experienced extra joy by getting to share the process WITH YOU. It is still surreal.

I read a lot on vacation – something I don’t have as much time for as I'd like throughout the rest of the year. I usually read some true story stuff, and I always take along at least one book that is of an inspirational nature. I also sit and... Continue reading

For anyone reading here who doesn’t know – Florida has been our vacation spot for years and years. When my daughters were really young, we used to stay over on the Gulf side beaches. When they got old enough to want to be busy doing things, we found a great... Continue reading

(As so many times before, THANK YOU for your wonderful comments and support and love concerning Pilgrim. It means SO much.) The loss of Pilgrim in the middle of my vacation did, of course, have an impact on my trip. I knew I REALLY needed to relax and enjoy this... Continue reading

I sure hate for this post to be the first one I write after two weeks away from blogging. But I absolutely must get this post behind me. It holds nothing but sadness. And for that I apologize. As I’ve said so many times before, you are here with me... Continue reading

You all know that Andrea (Celestial Kitties) is a BIG supporter of Winnie’s Wish. She’s done so much for this rescue that it would take the entire post to go back over it all. Of course, her BIGGEST gift was the gift to three Wishers of a wonderful forever home.... Continue reading
