Julie bought three bricks in this final round. She also had that corrected brick from the previous round (for Peach), making four bricks total. So there is one more brick to highlight today. And that brick is for me! When Julie made her order, she paid for an extra brick... Continue reading

Simon was a funny boy... sure, he was loving, a mobile appetite on four paws, devoted to me, and at times so annoyingly insecure, but above all of his other traits he was a funny boy. Probably the cleverest dog I've had, when he was a puppy his vet thought... Continue reading

Julie T is a super Friend of Winnie’s Wish. She has donated money, sent gifts from The Wish List, and this isn’t the first time she’s had brick stories on the blog. This round Julie bought three bricks, but there are FOUR brick stories to tell. Here's why. During the... Continue reading

The two seniors I am highlighting today ABSOLUTELY DO NEED HOMES – and the sooner the better. You might remember that I brought Traci Mae here from the shelter as a trade because the girls said she was a cat unlikely to get adopted and SO sad at the shelter.... Continue reading

I hope you read all the way through today’s and tomorrow’s posts. I’d like to think that with your help, we might place at least one senior Winnie’s Wish kitty into a home of his or her very own. I read an article that defined a cat as a senior... Continue reading

In April of 2011, Older Daughter was interning at the very shelter where she is now employed as Vet Tech. She was working a split internship between the shelter and a veterinary clinic, and continuing with coursework as well. That was the Spring of the Flood. The town where the... Continue reading

I promised updates. Just before my computer crashed, I posted about my Janie’s cancer surgery. And the next day I introduced you to my latest (at that time) foster cat – Anastasia. Then I was MIA for three weeks. So. Let me fill you in. First let me tell you... Continue reading

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for sticking around for three weeks of No Posts. Today I need to take care of some business with you, my friends. I lost all of my email contacts when my computer crashed. May I please trouble you to email me. That way I... Continue reading

Wow. You people sure are a fantastic group to know. Thank you for your comments and emails yesterday! I’d like to take today for some acknowledgements. Just before my computer crashed, Mindy Slimmer at Pugs and Purrs informed me that she would be sending a gift from The Wish List... Continue reading
Let me start today’s post with this – the comments on my yesterday’s post made me SO happy. THANK YOU. I missed YOU so much!! On the morning of March 6th, a Thursday, I posted to my blog and headed off to deliver my Janie dog to the clinic for... Continue reading

It’s the last day of March. I have a computer again – FINALLY! But this morning, I am leaving the house at 5:30am to take Husband for a medical test (just a test; nothing is wrong). So – no blogging today, but barring more computer problems and “if the creek... Continue reading

I had a short little (pleasant) post in mind for today. I wanted to show you a new piece of cat furniture in the cathouse. And I still plan to do that at some point. But I've decided to share something not so pleasant today (but with a happy ending).... Continue reading

Hi Friends! As I wrote on Sunday afternoon, we received another giant dose of Winter. Freezing rain followed by sleet (a record amount) followed by snow. If the sleet had come later and the freezing rain had lasted longer, we would have had power outages all throughout the area. Thankfully,... Continue reading

Note: I'm writing this on Sunday afternoon. Going to go ahead and post because it's REALLY looking like we are going to lose power at some point before this is over. March is the month that holds Spring. Also it is the month when we “spring forward” and magically end... Continue reading

I don't post on Sundays, but Andrea at Celestial Kitties made this AMAZING graphic for the Winnie's Wish kitties. AND - she wrote the poem that goes with it. Andrea - THANK YOU. Happy Dr. Seuss Day! Continue reading

I recently did a post about Twos on a Tuesday, highlighting the homes where TWO Winnie's Wishers live. At that time, I promised a Thursday of Threes. There are three super special homes where THREE Winnie's Wishers are happily living The Good Life. Before I ever started blogging, Julie K... Continue reading

I'm sure everyone reading here is familiar with the blog Forty Paws, home of the famous HAM-MICKS. The mom down there is a friend of Winnie's Wish. She bought two bricks in this round memorializing TEN kitties. Now that would be exactly Forty Paws. Dusty was with me in Omaha,... Continue reading

On February 12th , I posted about Percy the cat (a Winnie's Wish kitty) who was going to celebrate his birthday ON Valentine's Day. However, I wasn't sure about posting a birthday celebration in light of what had just happened in the home where Percy lived. That home is the... Continue reading

In just a few hours, I will send two little puppies on a journey of hope. My rescue friend Mere Lyn called me last week with a dilemma. She knew of two little boxer mix pups who were the offspring of a stray mom out in the county near a... Continue reading

Another brick in the Winnie's Wish Walkway from Ginny and Jim, memorializing a treasured pet from their past. Unfortunately, there is no picture of Winter here. They looked high and low but could not find one. Ginny says they lost some pictures in their moves to and from Arizona. But... Continue reading
The busy never ends . . . I kept thinking yesterday that I would find time to get my today's post ready, but that never happened. Then I misjudged the time I'd need this morning. I take a group of shelter dogs and cats to the clinic for spays and... Continue reading

ChiChi is considered my dog and Milli is Ray’s dog. Ray wanted a dog to take with him in the truck (when he drove a semi) so she started out as his “truck dog” but he fed her too much people food one week and she got really sick. Wound... Continue reading

I'm still looking out the window at snow and ice. Ah, but it is on its way out. We have a warm-up predicted for this week. In fact, (are you ready?) . . . . drumroll . . . . we will hit the SIXTIES on Thursday (with thunderstorms)! Crazy.... Continue reading

For my Valentine's Day post in 2013 (click here), I announced that two Winnie's Wishers had been CHOSEN for a home. It was THE perfect day to announce because these two kitties had the perfect names (and personalities) to be the featured furries for the Valentine holiday. Who had been... Continue reading

If you've been over to Pugs & Purrs, you know that the Slimmer family has lost another member. Their kitty Socks Lucyfur was assisted to the Rainbow Bridge surrounded by the humans who loved her. When I found out, I wondered if I should not blog such a “celebratory” post... Continue reading
