Sunspot is a beautiful kitty who needs a loving human and forever home of her own. She loves attention. She is slowly becoming less “irritated” by the other cats. She hasn’t been here long enough for me to know if she can become FRIENDS with other cats. But she is... Continue reading

Boy Blue and Binks are brothers I really want to get into their very own forever home. They came in as part of a family: mom Betty Lou with her three boys – Bojangles, Boy Blue, and Binks. Betty Lou and Bojangles are busy living The Good Life. Boy Blue... Continue reading

Have you ever used this qualifier when speaking about other folks? “They’re animal people.” I have. It becomes more difficult to dislike someone (for personality characteristics or political/spiritual beliefs) once you find out that he or she is an “animal person.” It appears to me that a shared love of...

I wrote this about Rocky in December: Several months ago, Rocky started having trouble using one of his back legs. This was followed by trouble with the other back leg. He had to move to my kennel where there are no steps. His condition has progressed and I now carry... Continue reading

Today we are letting our Rocky dog go. I shouldn’t have waited as long as I did. But yesterday I got my confirmation that it was time. I’ll write about this sweet guy on Monday. Continue reading

Ha. Guess what? Last Saturday was my SEVENTH blogoversary. Yep. Been blogging for seven years. And I didn’t realize the date had come and gone until . . . last night. So for my blogoversary, I’m asking for gifts. Very specific gifts. Can you guess? You don’t want to break... Continue reading

[Mom – this one’s for you.] My mom and I often talk about how laughter is good medicine. Have you ever gotten tickled about something, started laughing and couldn’t quit, and then felt better afterwards? Well, I’m sure you know that laughing IS actually good for us. Studies show that...

Hello, Friends. Thank you for your kind words of support and lots of great information concerning Angel and Sammi. After Angel’s surgery, she came home with two medications that we had not yet tried. One was a sulfa antibiotic because sulfa products can sometimes help with excess mucus. The other... Continue reading

My plan for today was to do Sunspot’s adoption post. But it’s been a rather hectic week. And you, my Friends, have left so many lovely comments and helpful emails that I decided to give a quick update today instead. Sammi went to the vet on Monday afternoon. She has... Continue reading

[Note: out of town today. This post was written a few days ago. Gideon did not end up doing well yesterday. I’ll update on Thursday.] It’s been a while. But here we are back around to Spring. I’ve been telling you that all of us in rescue work are more... Continue reading

Yesterday, was, well . . . a trying day. I’ve blogged about Sammi. Sammi was my mother-in-law’s cat. But when MIL could no longer care for her, Sammi came to us. She is a cat who would rather be an only cat. She also has some Siamese in there which... Continue reading

Do you want the good news or the bad news or the good news? Let’s start with the bad news and get it over with. I’ve received some emails asking about Angel’s progress since her surgery. There is zero change. Angel is still eating but I fear that has to... Continue reading

My MIL’s garage has been a haven for homeless (and often feral) cats for years and years. I saw a cat there two different times last week. I questioned whether or not this was one and the same, or possibly two different cats. On Thursday morning, we started the trapping... Continue reading

Hi Friends. I was unable to post to my blog this morning. We did not have internet service. Last night was a rough ride in the Midwest. Strong storms, including tornadoes, rumbled through our area. We are so grateful that we had no damage. Just north and south of here,... Continue reading

Last Wednesday night was when I stepped into my mother-in-law’s garage and got my first glimpse of a cat. Thursday morning, on his way to play golf, Husband stopped by and set the trap. That way he could stop again on his way home to see if we’d caught it.... Continue reading

In 2016, Fairyland was in full bloom on the ninth of March. The year before, in 2015, we were having a blizzard on the ninth of March. It was after the twentieth before the daffodils burst into a sea of yellow that year. I’ve definitely seen daffodils blooming in February.... Continue reading

I believe it was just yesterday. I said I was hoping maybe not too many homeless cats would “cross my path” this year. Omen? You might remember that quite a few homeless and feral cats and kittens have come from the area near my mother-in-law’s home. In fact, many many... Continue reading

I had an entire post written for today. I wrote it yesterday afternoon. It was a bummer. When I re-read it this morning as I was about to post to my blog, I decided to abandon that bummer post. It was born of worries concerning Angel and what should have... Continue reading

I’ll get right to it. Angel DID survive the surgery. For that I am SO relieved and deeply grateful. Unfortunately, there was nothing discovered that could be fixed. The Xrays showed nothing other than increased soft tissue in the left sinus. Dr. A said that could be mucus or possibly... Continue reading

Today Angel is having the surgery – a sort of experimental surgery inclusive of several possible procedures. I am going to be a wreck today while I’m waiting to hear something. I desperately want something to work, for one of the procedures to bring Angel some relief. But more than... Continue reading

Do you remember a little Wisher named Star? She was adopted and is definitely living The Good Life. Before she was adopted, I had my daughters pick out a shelter kitten who needed a little “extra” to be a friend for Star. They gave me Storm. She was a beautiful... Continue reading

Today’s post doesn’t have anything to do with the Winnie’s Wishers, my own animals, or even any foster cats or dogs of mine. But it’s such a great story that I just had to share it with you. The day after Christmas a momma dog and her five puppies came... Continue reading

I had a long foster kitten season this year. Not only did I foster more kittens than usual, but the big bunch of them came in the Fall rather than in the Spring. It was wonderful to have many of them adopted straight from my home into their forever homes.... Continue reading

Angel will go for her “surgery” a week from today. She is still eating well (her soupy canned food mixture that I make and her much-loved Bisques). I’m becoming more nervous every day that ticks by. It's not as much the worry about whether or not this surgery/procedure will be... Continue reading

Betty Lou was adopted during the Holidays. She came to Winnie’s Wish with her three sons: Bojangles, Boy Blue, and Binks. Bojangles was adopted during the Holidays, too. That leaves only two members of The B Family here at Winnie’s Wish – Binks and Blue. This is the pair I... Continue reading
