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

Sugar Cookie is ready and waiting for a Forever Home of her very own. She is a sweet, sweet cat who will be a true companion of her adopter. Sugar Cookie was born feral, but I took her in before she developed the hard-to-rid feral behaviors. She is afraid of... Continue reading

This week I have one more Holiday Share Request about a Winnie’s Wisher looking for a home. That post tomorrow. The second part of the week I have some stories that have me thinking . . . (I’d love to share my thoughts about this). But today – GIFTS GALORE!... Continue reading

Today I want to highlight a Winnie’s Wisher for adoption. I did an adoption post about Sienna in the Summer. She has only gotten sweeter since then. You might remember that Sienna was born into a feral colony. She was an older kitten when I took her in so that... Continue reading
No post today. Going with Younger Daughter (very early) for some medical tests. See you tomorrow. Continue reading

I have a new foster kitten to introduce you to. But first . . . One of my favorite things to have happen with a foster is for that animal to be living here temporarily and end up being adopted straight from here right into a home. It thrills me... Continue reading

Last week I had hoped to do all blog posts about my current fosters. The numbers and faces change, but I always have a handful of dogs, cats, puppies, and/or kittens here who belong to the shelter where my daughters work. Some weather conditions knocked out our internet for about... Continue reading

I went to bed on the night before Thanksgiving not knowing if my little Pilgrim kitten would be alive the next morning. I checked on him in the night. He had done nothing but lie in his bed for hours. Walking, even just moving, exhausted him and caused him to... Continue reading

Monday mid-morning I sat down at the computer to write my Tuesday post about Pilgrim and pneumonia. Sometimes I start typing about a topic in Word before actually posting to Typepad. I knew I wanted to get my thoughts together about this topic before actually posting the next day (Tuesday).... Continue reading
We had freezing rain all day yesterday and have been covered in layers of ice. I live in the country, so my internet went down as the ice accumulated. It’s 1pm on Tuesday and we just got our internet back. Hopefully, I’ll be back to blogging tomorrow. See you then. Continue reading

Today is Cyber Monday. Yesterday was Goodshop Sunday and tomorrow is GiveBackTuesday. Tis the Season . . . So if you are on Facebook, forgive me for bombarding you with posts about my book. I’m hoping to catch the eye of a reader or two who will buy my book... Continue reading

From our home to yours - See you next week. Continue reading

The dictionary defines the word gratitude – an appreciative awareness and thankfulness. I was surprised when I read that. When I use the word I feel something much more intense than those words seem to convey. So for my today’s post, I’d like to suggest that the word “gratitude” be... Continue reading

At the end of last week I told you that a new sick little kitten had come into my life. I promised I would tell that story today (Tuesday) after having been out of town yesterday. Knowing how precarious each new “kitten situation” is, I was unsure what exactly I... Continue reading

Winnie's Wish cathouse in the snow. Indulge me please. Let me mention (again) that the greatest thing that can happen here is a home for a Winnie’s Wisher. Here are the links for some posts about Winnie’s Wishers who are ready and waiting. Pick out your next best friend, or... Continue reading

If you’ve been “connected” in any way at all, you know that most of the U.S. is dealing with full-on WINTER weather. We had our first snow much earlier than usual on Sunday night. Then Monday night the temperature dropped to 14 degrees, with a windchill in the single digits.... Continue reading

Sometimes the shelter where my daughters work has an animal who needs some extra TLC. Last week I told you about Canyon, the dog who had pretty much given up and fallen prey to depression. (He is doing fantastic, by the way.) Today I want to introduce you to Sprite.... Continue reading

This is what we woke up to this morning. And tonight? We drop into the teens with a wind chill temp in the single digits. Now here is a line I took from another blog – Want to help your kitties stay warm and cozy in a soft flannel beddy... Continue reading

It’s hard to believe, but Nisha – one of the West Woods Gang – is moving into the “adoptables” list. This gal was the last to show up in this Fall’s strange discovery of cats living in the dense West Woods that butts up against our property. The four in... Continue reading

Maybe you remember Toast and Slate, two Winnie’s Wish brothers who came in together with another brother (Smokey) and a sister (Snowflake). They have been here since the summer of 2013. Slate and Toast Smokey and Snowflake The three boys eventually tamed and moved to the cathouse. Snowflake was much... Continue reading

Last week, the shelter where my daughters work, along with some other shelters and rescues, answered a call for help. A shelter/sanctuary was closing and there were lots and lots of dogs who needed immediate placement. My daughters’ shelter would take what they could. Luckily, they’d just had several adoptions....

Tomorrow I have a story about a dog that you won’t want to miss. But today . . . It looks like the Holiday Season has arrived. When I was growing up Halloween was a one-day event. Thanksgiving was a one-day event. And Christmas was the two-week period leading up... Continue reading

Here goes another push for the bonded pair – Tinkerbell and Peter Pan. PLEASE share this post on Facebook, Twitter, wherever you can. I appreciate your help so much! (some new pictures of them in this post) This is a sister-brother pair who need to be adopted together. They started... Continue reading

I’ve been doing rescue work for a long time. I’ve learned so much over the years. One of the areas I’ve learned about is feral cats. I am a supporter of TNR programs. I believe that in lots and lots of cases, feral cats living in feral communities are happier... Continue reading
