On Wednesday morning of last week, we repeated what we’d done on Tuesday. Husband set the trap in BIL’s yard on his way to work. Younger checked the trap half an hour later on her way to work. Then Older checked the trap two hours later when she headed to... Continue reading

A week ago on Tuesday morning, as I was posting about my four new feral foster kittens, Husband was on his way to work. He would stop at his brother’s place and set the trap. This small town is halfway between here and the town my husband and daughters work... Continue reading

I mentioned last week when I blogged about my new feral foster kittens that I was about to embark on a rescue mission. It was in the works by the time I posted on Tuesday morning. On Saturday, I wrote up the first part of the story and my plan... Continue reading

It’s only been a month and a half since Muffin received the diagnosis of Lymphoma. Dr. O said she probably had about six months left. He also told me it could be as short as two months. But I didn’t report the two months thing on this blog when I... Continue reading

With Winnie’s Wish full (of sanctuary kitties and a few adoptables), there haven’t been any new faces for a while. But I do still foster for the shelter where my daughters work. And at the end of last week, I received four new foster babies . . . four new... Continue reading

Two weeks ago, Older had five baby raccoons and two starling babies. All are doing well. The raccoons have been joined by two more. Here are their stories. The first new raccoon baby came with a story that broke my heart. Thank goodness someone reported this to Animal Control. The... Continue reading

It was strange not constantly trying to find time to work on ideas for blog posts over the weekend (now that I’m only blogging once a week - well, twice this week). We had beautiful weather here on Saturday so our “sometimes-on-Saturday” yard sale was on. That is a l-o-n-g... Continue reading

Betty Lou was adopted during the Holidays. She came to Winnie’s Wish with her three sons: Bojangles, Boy Blue, and Binks. Bojangles was adopted during the Holidays, too. That leaves only two members of The B Family here at Winnie’s Wish – Binks and Blue. This is the pair I... Continue reading

Sunspot is a beautiful kitty who needs a loving human and forever home of her own. She loves attention. She is going to make a GREAT companion for some human out there. But she hasn't done well here with other cats. She would do best in a home with no... Continue reading

Yesterday’s blog post received some comments along the line of “Can’t wait for your news!” I feel bad about that. There is nothing wonderful to announce like an adoption or an expansion. I’m sorry to have led some of you to anticipate a good news report of some sort. I’ve... Continue reading

June is Adopt-A-Cat Month. June is the chosen month for a very good reason. Kitten Season. When Kitten Season hits in the Spring, shelters everywhere are bombarded with kittens, kittens, kittens. This translates into not enough space. The push is on to get the cats already in the shelters adopted... Continue reading

I’m going to end this week with the news that I have NOT caught a cat. I’ve checked my trap dozens of times. I trip it each night and bring it home. Guess that was a travelin’ cat. Of course, I’ll still be on the lookout. I want to make... Continue reading

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Wildlife Wednesday. Time to update you on Older Daughter’s Wild Angels wildlife rehab. Older and I have had our fingers crossed since before our trip to Florida that the wildlife baby season this year wouldn’t slam Older just before vacation OR right... Continue reading

Hi hi Friends!! Sunday was Older Daughter’s wedding. After six months of working towards this event, I can say that we were all just thrilled. The wedding was beautiful, everything went as planned, the weather cooperated, and our daughter was the most gorgeous bride ever. (Of course she will share... Continue reading

This blog is about animals. I don't blog about the things in my personal life unless it includes animals in some way. But today I’m going to mention something unrelated to animals and entirely personal. That’s because it is going to affect my “daily dose” week. Today is the only... Continue reading

Sunspot is the most recent Winnie’s Wish newcomer. I was extremely pleased when Sunspot became friendly with me very soon after she arrived. The middle room in the cathouse had a couple of spots available since Betty Lou and Bojangles were adopted. It was quite handy that this was the... Continue reading

I certainly didn’t want to start my return week to blogging with sad news. I wanted to talk about our wonderful trip. And I wanted to celebrate Andrea’s very successful “Birthday Package Party” fundraiser. But today I share with you another heartbreak here. There were no issues with the animals... Continue reading

Just before we left for our wonderful, amazing, fantastic, sublime, relaxing, delicious vacation, Andrea launched a fundraiser for Winnie’s Wish. She called it “Chrystal’s Birthday Package Party.” My birthday is May 27. So Andrea asked folks who wanted to support Winnie’s Wish to send something for MY birthday to benefit... Continue reading

Let’s see. A couple of weeks ago I wrote on this blog that I hoped to do the following on our vacation: Rest, Recreate, Relax, Recover, and Recharge. And I am happy to announce that I accomplished all five things. Check box. Before we left, Andrea (Celestial Kitties) wished me... Continue reading

Today, I will say what I’ve said in previous years. My trip to the land of palm trees is a necessary time away from everything. As much as I hate to leave behind the furry creatures who depend on me, I need this time to rest – physically and mentally.... Continue reading

I say it every year – SO hard to leave. Who all will I be worried about? My biggest concern this year was for my Benji boy. I’m still struggling every day with losing him. But if there is a bright spot in his passing, it is that he moved... Continue reading

[Before I start today’s post, let me say yet again to you – my Friends – THANK YOU. Your outpouring of love over the loss of my Benji boy means so very much to me.] May didn’t start off too well with the loss of my Benji. But there are... Continue reading

There was a hard cold rain blowing straight out of the north. The wind and rain had been a constant companion all throughout the night. Now it was Thursday morning. I would be assisting my sweet, troubled Benji to the Rainbow Bridge. Almost three weeks ago Benji’s more serious symptoms... Continue reading
