As Winnie’s Wish has morphed into a sanctuary, I’ve been even more determined to get the adoptable Wishers into homes. There are cats here who will require the usual “Wisher patience” but who WILL eventually adjust and be SO happy to have a home and a person of their very... Continue reading

Just a quick update from Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab. Some of the raccoons have been successfully released. The rest have been moved to an outdoor enclosure. The newest babies to come in are a group of four TINY squirrels. The usual story – a tree was cut down and the... Continue reading

Fannie hates me. But that’s OK. I trapped Fannie and her two kittens about a month ago. The kittens are both females (Daisy & Daffodil), so this was a feral family of females who would spend the rest of their lives reproducing continuously and struggling to survive. The kittens moved...

Last week I wrote about converting another kennel dog run into a second kitty condo. We did this some time back for Angel. This time it was for Sunspot. My guilt about her living in the small enclosure in the cathouse was consuming me. So Husband and I converted a... Continue reading

When I rescued two kittens and their mom from a town full of feral cats and kittens, I didn’t truly believe any of the three would become adoptable. But I hoped that maybe one of the kittens might tame. Mom (Fannie) is NOT happy here. She has been spayed and... Continue reading

Sunspot is one of the sweetest cats here at Winnie’s Wish. She loves attention. She loves to be petted. She wants to be around people. . . . . But she does not care for other cats. As I’ve blogged about on more than one occasion, I tried every location... Continue reading

The last Wildlife Wednesday post was a month ago. So it’s time for an update. Let me do the unhappy news first. Older Daughter took in a fawn that was in seriously dangerous shape. Even with vet care (more than once), this baby did not make it. Before she died,... Continue reading

Last week I told you the story of trapping the feline family – mom and two offspring. I also shared with you that I spotted (and even snapped a photo of) a black cat at the woods line in my own yard. That cat has not shown up since. I... Continue reading

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

Happy Fourth of July!! As we celebrate our nation’s birthday, let’s hope this wonderful country of ours grows continuously towards love and compassion . . . extended more and more to our animal friends and family members. Have a great day! 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
