Sometimes I feel really bad about blogging. You people who read here are wonderful supportive folks who really care about the animals here. I’ve said so many times on this blog how much I appreciate your comments of comfort when I have lost a furry loved one or when I’m... Continue reading

I hate to put you on the roller coaster I’m riding right now. But there’s been no improvement with Duchess yet. Monday, I was relieved to have the vet tell me she thought we had a treatable condition going on. Duchess is on four medications. I knew she wouldn’t bounce... Continue reading

Duchess quit eating over the weekend. I have no idea why. I have the first appointment of the morning today. This is WAY too close to losing Tory. I really need for there to be an answer for Duchess that gets us THROUGH this. (Duchess’ story – click here.) See... Continue reading

Well, I feel really bad about my post yesterday. Clearly, the way I wrote about my tumble to the concrete left everyone with the wrong impression. You were all very kind to send best wishes to Canyon and to me. But I am 100% completely OK. I did crash and... Continue reading

I have never had one of my own dogs go through heartworm treatment. I have only used the slow-kill method here so I didn’t really know what to expect when foster dog Canyon returned from treatment. He came with VERY specific instructions. He was to have virtually no activity. Walking... Continue reading

Hi Friends. Thank you so much for your comforting comments about my Tory. I appreciate them so much. I know every single one of you understands and knows what this feels like. Now how about some happier news! Take a glance at the GoFundMe graphic at the top of my... Continue reading

Last Thursday I copied and pasted on this blog what I had written the night before. (Thank you so much for your comments on that post.) It was Wednesday night and I had to get a lot of stuff done the next morning before taking off to the vet with... Continue reading

I’m writing this on Wednesday night to post tomorrow (Thursday). My plan for Thursday was to write about a new foster cat and to do an update on Pilgrim. But things have changed. I need to get up and get gone in the morning, so I’ll write a few lines... Continue reading

You know that I want the animals here to be safe and healthy and happy. I can almost always feel good about everybody’s safety. Bringing everyone to health and keeping them all there is a little more challenging. And the happy part – well, I strive for this every day.... Continue reading

I ended yesterday’s post with why I feel stronger than ever about raising the money to build on to the Winnie’s Wish cathouse. I like to keep the cats here happy. Always, the ultimate goal is to get the Wishers into wonderful forever homes. But until that happens, I want... Continue reading

If you visited this blog last Thursday, you know that I launched a building fundraiser on GoFundMe. With my high degree of technological prowess, you can imagine how easy this was for me. Ha. Actually – it WAS easy. GoFundMe is one of the easiest new things I’ve tried. Of... Continue reading
I don’t know where you are right now as you read this. But if you’re just about anywhere in the United States, you are dealing with some seriously cold weather. Here in southern Illinois last night the low was TWO DEGREES, with a wind chill in the negative teens. And... Continue reading

Thank you for allowing me, yesterday, the indulgence of complaining about a frustrating day. I very much understand that annoying events and worries about money are something we ALL face. Sometimes they build up and make for a less-than-pleasant day. Certainly, however, this type of day is nothing more than... Continue reading

I’ve written on this blog a couple of times about having “one of those days.” Usually, I am able to turn it into something humorous. If not, I just don’t write about it. None of that applies this time. Today I’m going to write about my yesterday. It was definitely... Continue reading

You might remember that I took in a little foster kitten named Pilgrim. I have some sad news about him. This actually happened a few days before Christmas. I was really bummed but didn’t want to share it with all of you during the Holidays. It was just much nicer... Continue reading

You might have read my post (Dec 18) about the current trouble I am having with some of the more “assertive” cats and some of the more timid ones. I keep moving cats with the hope that everybody will feel safe and happy. There is a new arrangement now in... Continue reading

I hope your Christmas was everything you wanted it to be. Winnie’s Wish sure did have a wonderful holiday. In addition to what I showed you on the 22nd, Winnie’s Wish received these gifts for Christmas: A package arrived all the way from France. (That should give it away.) #1... Continue reading

Each of these fine folks has helped Winnie’s Wish in lots of ways over the years, including adopting. Each has adopted THREE Winnie’s Wish kitties... Continue reading

This week, on this blog – only good news! Let me start off with sincere thanks for your comments and emails of support and encouragement about adding a room on to the Winnie’s Wish cathouse. The need is there. The desire is there. And I’m lucky enough to have a... Continue reading

Yesterday I told you about Nisha and the rest of her West Woods Family all living in the two small rooms in the kennel. Those four joined the four who already permanently live there. This is a crowd. It seems now that I won’t be able to separate these four... Continue reading

Do you remember the West Woods Family? Yardley, Kizzie, Bunny, and Nisha? If so, you might remember that Nisha tamed right away. Not long after Nisha was spayed I decided to move her to the cathouse. She was ready for a home of her own and there was no real... Continue reading
