Zen was returned to Winnie’s Wish after being adopted and living with the adopter for a year. The adopter abandoned Zen and the ex-girlfriend returned her to me. Zen was used to sleeping in bed with her humans. She is a WONDERFUL cat – so sweet and so loving. I... Continue reading

Halo came to Winnie’s Wish in 2012. She was eventually adopted, then shifted to a family member’s home, then returned to Winnie’s Wish in November of 2016. She is a shy cat, always has been. She started off her return to WW in a cage in the kennel kitten room.... Continue reading

Last week I told you about Zen coming back to Winnie’s Wish. The woman who adopted her abandoned her. In addition, a friend of my daughters was trying to give away his Wishers – Silly Whim and Arthur – because he was moving. His parents, who’d had the cats declawed... Continue reading

There’s a lot to get to, but we’ll start with Older’s Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab. Throughout Older Daughter’s peak wildlife season – Spring and most of the Summer – I periodically do a Wildlife Wednesday post to give you a peek into her world of wildlife rehabilitation. In the Fall,... Continue reading

With Zen coming back (I picked her up last night) and a downpour of rain onto every single item in the yard sale Saturday and then some pretty bad news (for Winnie’s Wish) on Saturday night, I felt like things were getting to be a bit too much. I was... Continue reading

Last Friday was National Coffee Day. I posted a celebratory graphic on Facebook that day. It has now been several days since that deeply important celebration, so my graphic for you is belated. However, I surely cannot miss entirely this VERY important day. :) Now obviously, last Friday being National... Continue reading

The last thing I need right now is one more cat. Winnie’s Wish is currently three over maximum capacity. And soon to be four. Yesterday I received an email that dropped my heart into my stomach. When I read the words – Please call me at this number as soon... Continue reading

Here’s a bit of good news. As a result of the post I did last Monday, the shelter has had a couple of kitten adoptions. And guess who one of those kittens was?! A little foster of mine who had returned to the shelter – Carmel! I’m so happy for... Continue reading

Hi Friends. Today is about YOU. I’ve said things like this many times over the years. It’s time to say it again. You guys are AWESOME. When I wrote about the portable building I’m trying to raise money for, I considered it merely a story for my blog . .... Continue reading

I’m writing this story on my blog today so that I can share it on the Project Hope Facebook page. The shelter is desperate for feline adoptions. This year, as kittens started coming in, only a couple were adopted out. This means that there are TOO MANY kittens at the... Continue reading

Today I’m telling the story of a fundraiser I’m in charge of. That probably sounds pretty boring. But things came together so beautifully that I really do want to share it with you. A year ago (last September) I had the crazy idea to ask the Board of the humane... Continue reading

The last time I blogged about Older Daughter’s Wild Angels wildlife rehab was the middle of last month. Finally, her busy season is beginning to wind down. By this time of year, she’s exhausted. The last post introduced you to four new baby squirrels. One was injured when the tree... Continue reading

I wrote about converting a second kennel dog run into a “kitty condo.” Sunspot needed a place to live while waiting for her forever home. She did not do well in a room full of cats, so she was living in the enclosure in the middle cat room. I had... Continue reading

It’s the last week of August. I am a Summer-Lover. And even though I very much do love the Autumn as well, I always hate to see the Summer go. With one exception – wow, oh, wow do I ever hope that Autumn brings adoptions. Sometimes when Fall arrives, folks... Continue reading

I mentioned that I took in four foster kittens from the shelter where my daughters work. These four were dumped. They were feral. I told my daughters I would take them and work on taming them. Of course, it’s always unlikely that a whole group of feral kittens will tame.... Continue reading

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
