One year ago exactly (August 2015) we trapped a mom cat and her three kittens in my mom and dad’s backyard. They were straying in the neighborhood and the mom cat brought her kittens to my parents’ yard periodically. The story unfolds over several posts (and days) which is available... Continue reading

As I’ve mentioned many times, I do not have lots of “adoptable” cats here at Winnie’s Wish. I take the tougher cases and almost always need very special people to adopt them. At this point in time I really have only three cats who might be able to move into... Continue reading

Today I have an update on some cute little opossums (two sets), and I’ll also be introducing a couple of new Wild Angels. These three little possums are growing and staying healthy. It won’t be long before they will move to an outdoor enclosure. when they first arrived at Wild... Continue reading

Yesterday I posted about little Winnie’s Wisher – Star – and one of my foster kittens – Storm. Today is about two Previous Fosters – Charlie and Arrow. This is a Feel-Good post for your Tuesday. Charlie was an OLD cat with a bad ear and almost no teeth who... Continue reading

Star is the most recent addition to Winnie’s Wish. She was in very bad shape when I took her in. A couple of days ago, Older Daughter asked me about Star and the little foster kitten, Storm, who’s with her. When I reported that they were both doing well, Older... Continue reading

Yesterday I told you about Sammi, a cat who belonged to a family member who can no longer take care of her. So Sammi is now a part of OUR furry family. Well, there’s another furry addition here who ended up with us because a family member didn't feel she... Continue reading

(This post was planned for last Wednesday, but then my Sudsy died on Tuesday evening. This post was supposed to follow the post about Star and Storm recently moving into my upstairs cat room.) Late last fall, my mother-in-law fell ill so Husband went to her house every day to... Continue reading

Recently, Older Daughter received two calls about baby wildlife. One was a tiny baby bunny which turned out to be only one week old. The other call was about baby opossums – again. The opossums were so young that their eyes were still closed. These were incubator sized opossums. And... Continue reading

My Suds cat died on Tuesday evening last week. As I pondered what I wanted to write about him, I realized that I didn’t just want to do my “typical” post for these occasions. I always tell about how rough it was at the end, how hard to make the... Continue reading

I lost my Suds cat last night. He’s been part of this family for fifteen and a half years. I’m not prepared to write about him yet. And it seems weird to write about anything else today. So I’m going to take today and tomorrow off. I’ll see you next... Continue reading

I took in a foster kitten from the shelter where my daughters work. They picked out a little kitten who was mostly a loner and who needed a little extra handling and TLC. I hoped my little Star wouldn’t overwhelm her. Star had been bored and lonely for days. Getting... Continue reading

Star was so sick and weak when she first arrived here that she didn’t play at all. It took a while before I got her to play with a birdie-on-a-string type of toy. Before long, I was going into the bathroom to find all of her toys in different places.... Continue reading

At the last shelter meeting I attended with my daughters, there was talk about some dogs who were living on the ends of chains in yards in that community. I learned during that meeting that it is not against the law for your dog to live on a chain. The... Continue reading

I wrote last week about Older Daughter’s most recent fawn. This one was in such bad shape that we all feared he wouldn’t live. He did make some improvements in Older’s care – bruises and scrapes started healing and the swelling in the joints went down. He reached the point... Continue reading

I’ve been looking forward to updating you on my newest little Wisher – Star. Before I do, let me share with you what Andrea (Celestial Kitties) said about Star’s name. You remember I reported that Andrea had a cat named Star. Here’s what she said - As I commented on... Continue reading

Last week I did a post about seven of my ten foster felines returning to the shelter in time for a big adoption event that would be going on there. And I happily reported that one of my fosters – a blond kitten by the name of Arrow – DID... Continue reading

Slate & Finnick Snowflake It’s been nine months since I wrote about Slate and Finnick needing a home together. I did a quick mention of them in December, but the last in-depth post was last October. I wrote about Snowflake in February. Not long ago, I had an inquiry about... Continue reading

You might remember that Older Daughter has taken in two fawns this year. As I said once before, you never want to see a baby of any kind injured, sick, or abandoned, but it was actually very good for Fawn #1 to get Fawn #2. Deer are not meant to... Continue reading

You might have seen this advertised. This past Saturday was “Clear the Shelters” Day. One of our local television stations has been promoting the day all month long. Also – the wonderful person who did the article for Winnie’s Wish in our local newspaper did an article last week for... Continue reading

Here is a picture of little Star just one week ago. She has grown since then, filled out some, and the hole in front of her ear has almost completely healed. The diarrhea has changed to what I would classify as a “soft stool” which is much better than where... Continue reading

Well, I did my best (yesterday) to talk about something other than the new little Wisher – Star. I figured you must surely want to read something besides my continuing worry about her. But I stayed away from the subject for as long as I could. It’s back to Star... Continue reading

My daughters do not live far from our home. They each have a place down the gravel road towards the river. However, it is definitely farther than a “stone’s throw” away to their homes. Older Daughter lives even farther than does Younger Daughter. As you know, Older has the wildlife... Continue reading

Gonna talk about flea prevention today, but first . . . You know it’s not just everybody you can share something like this with. But I know you, Friends, will be happy to hear this. Star has had TWO stools that are a small degree better than thin liquid! We... Continue reading

I was in tears Thursday evening. My new little Wisher did not eat a bite all day Thursday. I was to the point of panic by bedtime Thursday night. Older Daughter came and gave fluids. She said she hated to put such a tiny baby through force-feeding, but that if... Continue reading

The new baby went to the vet yesterday. The stool sample test was clear so that wasn’t the explanation for the loss of appetite and diarrhea. The most likely explanation is that her body is having trouble making the adjustment to having food. The hole in front of her ear... Continue reading
