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

Remember the family of feral felines I trapped in my parents’ backyard last Summer? Momma Monday, daughter Clover, and sons Pippin and Pipes? When they finally tamed enough to move to the cathouse, I did a post about them and added them to my sidebar and to Petfinder. That post... Continue reading

Betty Lou is the disabled momma cat who became a Winnie’s Wisher along with her three sons – Boy Blue, Binks, and Bojangles. Betty Lou is SO SO SO ready for a home. She is friendly and loving. She is NOT the typical Winnie’s Wish cat who requires extra patience... Continue reading

A week ago today, I wrote about the influx of babies coming into Older Daughter’s Wild Angels wildlife rehab. The first two baby squirrels that came in went from formula to eating on their own to (now) an outdoor enclosure. The second two baby squirrels are now off formula and... Continue reading

Tomorrow (Friday, April 22) is Earth Day. You can learn about it HERE. I care about our Earth and her plants and animals. I try to do my small part. I don’t litter. I try to re-use things. I plant trees. And I rescue animals. Earth Day reminds us to... Continue reading

A few days ago I received an email message from the volunteer who takes care of the shelter’s FB page (the shelter where my daughters work). Someone had inquired about Cato. You might remember that Cato is a cat from the shelter who has been a foster here since he... Continue reading

You know I foster shelter dogs in my kennel when I can. I recently had a ten-day period of being completely full in my kennel during a local school district’s spring break. That’s when Mom Charlotte and her two pups, Templeton & Fern, had to move to the shelter they... Continue reading

I did a post not long ago about the “things of Spring” which included pictures of two baby girl squirrels that Older Daughter received into her Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab. Those two squirrels have now transitioned from formula to eating on their own. They are about to be moved to... Continue reading

This will be a short post today. LOTS to get done. First on the agenda is getting Betty Lou’s three boys – Binks, Boy Blue, and Bojangles – dropped off at the clinic for their neuter surgeries. Here are the latest pictures of the boys. SUCH a cute picture of... Continue reading

Not the Winter “season” – I’m ready to move on from there (especially since last weekend was far too Winter-like for mid-April). I’m talking about the Winnie’s Wish kitty named Winter. She is one of the Wishers living in the two rooms in the kennel – what used to be... Continue reading

There MUST be a way to get Traci Mae into a loving forever home. Those of you who read this blog know about Traci Mae. She is now eight years old and has spent her life in shelters. She needs to be in a home of her very own. She... Continue reading

Hey Friends. It’s good to be back. I seem to be a little too confident that I am a person who isn’t going to “catch” things; and by things I mean viruses. I move around in my world a little too sure of myself, believing that I am healthy enough... Continue reading
Down with the flu. See you soon. Continue reading

The category is – “Things to Smile About.” I figure this is a good post for a Monday. Who doesn’t enjoy a smile, ANYtime, but especially on a Monday? First topic in this category - Angel is on her way this morning to be spayed. You remember she is living... Continue reading

Betty Lou is a wonderful, friendly, female cat – light gray in color, with white chest and white feet. When she was rescued, she had her litter of three boy kittens with her – the litter was about four months old at the time. Her boys had already lived too... Continue reading

I trapped three older kittens on my MIL’s property not long ago. Then, quite unexpectedly, I trapped the mom cat, too. You might remember that my MIL’s neighbor (BJ) said she could give the mom cat a home. That was great for me – I didn’t really have spots for... Continue reading

I sent emails to the most recent adopters last Wednesday night. I told you in yesterday’s post that Laura and I spoke, and Zen is now in her forever home. When I heard back from A on Thursday morning, however, she said that Hope had not worked out. Then she... Continue reading
