A while back I mentioned that I wanted to share some “Where Are They Now” type posts about some of the Wishers who are out there living The Good Life! I posted the first of these stories on July 30th. Then there was a lot going on in August what... Continue reading

I mentioned back on August 3rd that I rarely have a dog story anymore. I don’t have my own dog rescue and shelter like I do for cats. But I do try to foster dogs when needed. The problem this time of year is that my kennel stays full so... Continue reading

Hey my Friends! You know me well enough now to have figured out that if I say there is the BEST kind of news it HAS to mean adoption. Yesterday I tried to throw you off a little by saying I had some REALLY good news. But some of you... Continue reading

Today I have some sad news, some good news, and some REALLY good news. Let me get the sad news out of the way first. On Thursday I introduced you to Sweet Pea and her EIGHT newborn kittens. Sweet Pea had her kittens in a lumber yard/saw mill. The town’s... Continue reading

Every room everywhere here is full of cats and kittens. Hmmm. Must be Kitten Season! It started with little Jaws. He is a foster kitten of mine who had to have surgery to repair his tiny little broken jaw. After his surgery, he needed someplace healthy and safe to stay... Continue reading

Momma Monday (the homeless tortie mom cat) and two of her three kittens were safely tucked away here at my home. For days, my parents kept the trap set hoping to catch the final kitten. I knew the things that could happen to a kitten all alone. None of them... Continue reading

Last Monday (a week ago yesterday) was the day the mom tortie was trapped. I was desperate to get the last kitten trapped as well. It was out there all alone now. But there was no luck the rest of that Monday. The days came and went. Tuesday Wednesday Thursday... Continue reading

Last Monday was the day my parents were returning from their trip. We would be picking them up at the train station late that night. I knew once they got home, there would be lots more activity at their house. I felt like mom tortie had moved her kitten to... Continue reading

Older Daughter had Sunday off. Younger headed to town mid-morning. She would set the trap. I would drive in after lunch, before my kennel business got heavy during the late afternoon. I would need to get back by a certain time. As I drove into the driveway, I saw mom... Continue reading

On Saturday the trap was set mid-morning, checked in the middle of the day, and then checked again at 5pm. Nothing. The only thing that came of those checks was that Older Daughter managed to get, with her phone, a picture of mom cat right after she ran into the... Continue reading

I didn’t want to mention on the blog last Thursday that my parents would be out of town for the weekend. Not good to advertise when you won’t be home. But they are back now. So let me fill you in on my attempts to trap the tortie mom cat... Continue reading

Winnie's Wish received some fantastic gifts. Every single item below is really exciting and SO helpful: food and kitty litter (which gets used up around here very quickly!), Fortiflora (perfect), and see if you notice a common theme about this group of gifts from some great Friends of Winnie's Wish....

On Monday afternoon I went to my parents’ house. Mom and I walked down to the thicket. I was prepared; I’d worn jeans instead of shorts. I was going all the way into that thicket in case that blond kitten was still in there somewhere. But I found nothing. I... Continue reading

Not only did the mom tortie bring her three kittens to eat at the feeding station my parents were providing, but on the second day she did an extraordinary thing that caused my hopes to soar. Mom kitty brought the kittens to eat early one morning. I talked to Mom... Continue reading

Early yesterday morning when I mentioned a new rescue mission, I was still feeling some hope. But I must warn you – I’m feeling that hope slipping away. It’s been over a week now. My Mom and I were having a phone conversation and she mentioned a very skinny tortie... Continue reading

When I started blogging (five years ago), it seems like I had more dog stories than cat stories. Over time, I think the posts about dogs and the posts about cats probably balanced each other out. But anybody who’s been reading here for only the last couple of years would... Continue reading

I mentioned on Monday that I wanted to share some “Where Are They Now” type posts about some of the Wishers who are out there living The Good Life! My goal is to have some stories available at the click of a picture for people who might be considering the... Continue reading

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
