Today I’ll update you on Older Daughter’s Wild Angels Rehab. Wow, it sure is in full swing. A couple of weeks ago I was introducing you to a baby opossum that Older Daughter was feeding around the clock. And I showed you pictures of the fawn and the three raccoons... Continue reading

Dora was very sick with high fever last week. Dr C didn’t know what exactly was wrong because there were no other symptoms. He said I might see upper respiratory illness break out, or possibly diarrhea and vomiting. It could be something treatable with an antibiotic or it might be... Continue reading

I promise I will get to Dora. Let me take care of a little business first. I want to inform everybody that Andrea over at Celestial Kitties is doing a big final push for her most recent toy FUNdraiser. These particular toys have been super popular and my understanding is... Continue reading

This will be a short post. Little Dora’s fever came raging back yesterday before the Tuesday fever-reducing medication had even worn off. I waited the full 24 hours before giving the injection I had come home with. This would give her another 24 hours of at least some partial relief... Continue reading

I can’t tell you how happy I was to be able to write yesterday’s post. When Dora came to me healthy, I was still plenty cautious. I know from lots of experience that no matter how good a kitten looks one day, it can be deathly sick the next. But... Continue reading

One night last week, Older Daughter’s partner (D) was driving home after a late shift at work. He was driving through rural territory. At one point, he noticed that a car was pulled over on the side of the road. The lights were on and the vehicle was running. He... Continue reading

I can’t stop blogging about it. Friends, this new room is just fantastic. It has allowed me to completely alleviate the overcrowding problem in the kennel cat rooms. And the current combinations of cats in the three cat rooms is preventing ALL bullying. Everybody is so happy. Traci Mae doesn’t... Continue reading

It’s time for an update from Older Daughter’s wildlife rehab. Wild Angels has received a couple of new babies since the last time I posted about her work. And the babies she’s had for a several weeks now (fawn and raccoons) are growing and doing really well. They are getting... Continue reading

Today’s post is about the cutes! When you’re reading other blogs (or if you blog yourself) you know that a lot of bloggers do “Wordless Wednesdays.” The post they publish to their blogs on Wednesdays is ONLY pictures. Of course, it’s too late for that here today. I’ve already used... Continue reading

Last Wednesday I told you about my new little Wisher – Violet. I received her the previous Sunday. She was starving so she was fed several small meals during that day. On Monday she would not eat and on Monday night vomiting and diarrhea started. Older Daughter knew that those... Continue reading

I’d like to start this week by thanking you for coming to the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Thursday. It was wonderful to have you stop by and many of you even left a comment. The new space is fantastic. I immediately moved a handful of cats around to alleviate the... Continue reading

Today’s the day! Winnie’s Wish is opening the THIRD (and final) room. I looked back in my blog to when this whole thing started. A couple of fantastic posts are the December 31st post and the post in January announcing that we’d launched our Building Fundraiser. I went back and... Continue reading

She was found in a basement. It’s anybody’s guess how she ended up there. Probably she fell through a broken window at ground level. We don’t know if she was in the basement for days, starving; or if she was already starving when she fell into the basement. The VERY... Continue reading

I told you last week that I had taken a tiny little kitten to foster for the shelter where my girls work. He had a broken jaw, and even though surgery on such a tiny creature was risky, it needed to be done. The tiny jaw was wired and I... Continue reading

This week on the blog: an invitation, a couple of updates, and a tiny new Wisher (whose short life has already been a struggle). Husband and I spent Saturday (Fourth of July) building cat trees and creating climbing and sunning places on the walls and at the windows in the... Continue reading

I bet you think the fireworks are for this weekend’s Fourth of July celebration. For sure this graphic works well for the holiday. But I actually have fireworks going off on the blog today for a different reason. Are you ready? We’re Done!!!!! The Winnie’s Wish addition is COMPLETE. The... Continue reading

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

I am devoting today’s post to Andrea’s newest FUNdraiser!!! I’m sure you all know by now... Continue reading

(The first three paragraphs are from the post I did on June 3 – Florida Ferals.) On the very last day of our vacation in Florida, my daughters wanted to go to a little store they’d been to the previous couple of years. It’s a pet supermarket that has an... Continue reading

Today I am quite excited to announce that we are VERY VERY VERY close to being finished with the new addition to the cathouse. There are a few pieces of trim left to put up. And the last BIG step – the floor. We’ll put luan (underlayment) down next and... 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...

Another extremely busy weekend that has leaked over into Monday. Be back to blogging tomorrow when I will have some really CUTE pictures. Continue reading

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
