You might remember that Older Daughter has taken in two fawns this year. As I said once before, you never want to see a baby of any kind injured, sick, or abandoned, but it was actually very good for Fawn #1 to get Fawn #2. Deer are not meant to... Continue reading

You might have seen this advertised. This past Saturday was “Clear the Shelters” Day. One of our local television stations has been promoting the day all month long. Also – the wonderful person who did the article for Winnie’s Wish in our local newspaper did an article last week for... Continue reading

Here is a picture of little Star just one week ago. She has grown since then, filled out some, and the hole in front of her ear has almost completely healed. The diarrhea has changed to what I would classify as a “soft stool” which is much better than where... Continue reading

Well, I did my best (yesterday) to talk about something other than the new little Wisher – Star. I figured you must surely want to read something besides my continuing worry about her. But I stayed away from the subject for as long as I could. It’s back to Star... Continue reading

My daughters do not live far from our home. They each have a place down the gravel road towards the river. However, it is definitely farther than a “stone’s throw” away to their homes. Older Daughter lives even farther than does Younger Daughter. As you know, Older has the wildlife... Continue reading

Gonna talk about flea prevention today, but first . . . You know it’s not just everybody you can share something like this with. But I know you, Friends, will be happy to hear this. Star has had TWO stools that are a small degree better than thin liquid! We... Continue reading

I was in tears Thursday evening. My new little Wisher did not eat a bite all day Thursday. I was to the point of panic by bedtime Thursday night. Older Daughter came and gave fluids. She said she hated to put such a tiny baby through force-feeding, but that if... Continue reading

The new baby went to the vet yesterday. The stool sample test was clear so that wasn’t the explanation for the loss of appetite and diarrhea. The most likely explanation is that her body is having trouble making the adjustment to having food. The hole in front of her ear... Continue reading

Well, the new baby is still with me. I didn’t lose her yesterday or last night. I couldn’t get her in to the vet until today so Older Daughter came yesterday to look her over. I thought she might need subQ fluids. I saw her drink a bit of water... Continue reading

This will be a short post, Friends. My husband woke me up at 1:00am when he got home from work. He had a tiny kitten. Definitely not in good shape. I set up the downstairs bathroom for her. I offered food and water but she only ate two bites and... Continue reading

I hate to start the week with a sad story, but I want to get the word out quickly. I’ll be copying today’s post onto the shelter’s FB page. I took the pictures I needed at the end of last week. The shelter, unfortunately, has had a return. This doesn’t... Continue reading

Yesterday, just when I had gotten back in the house from the kennel and cathouse, we had a storm. It came on really fast and got severe just as quickly. There was wind and hard hard rain. But it was the lightning that surprised me. In fact, one bolt hit... Continue reading

Younger Daughter was working at the shelter on Sunday. It was Older Daughter’s day off. In the middle of the afternoon I got a text from Older – The county animal control officer just contacted me. There is a bad situation with some cats and kittens. Of course, the pound... Continue reading

I believe I’ve mentioned the little “catio” I have just outside the west door of our house. It’s a small screened-in area that my cats absolutely LOVE. We don’t have much of a Spring in southern Illinois. Our weather goes from Winter to Summer in a hurry. But during the... Continue reading

I know you remember Angel. She’s the white cat who was thrown out when the owners died and the contents of the house were being sold. There are several posts that tell her story. Here they are in chronological order. Two White Dogs; One White Cat How? Meant to Be... Continue reading

*Note. Let me start this post with a warning. The description of what was wrong with the cat is graphic and might be hard for some people to read. Husband was at work on Sunday evening. At some point during his shift, I got a text from him. Call me.... Continue reading

The last time I did a post about Older Daughter’s Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab, I was introducing you to new baby raccoons, a fawn, and a couple of baby birds. Today, there is a new introduction to make and updates all around. Three weeks ago, there were raccoons who were... Continue reading

Two weeks ago I told you the story of the mom cat and five kittens that we rescued from my husband’s place of employment at the end of last month. (That story took four posts to tell and begins on 6/13/16.) Thought I’d do a picture update for you today.... Continue reading

Before I was able to get away for my wonderful vacation, some events had accumulated into what felt like a sign for me to reconsider what I do. As it turns out, I was just really tired and stressed and way too negative. I actually realized that before I ever... Continue reading

Here’s what’s going on . . . On Friday morning I discovered that our internet wasn’t working. I reported it and was told there was a problem with something on the tower that serves my tiny little geographical area. The really disappointing part was that the employee I was speaking...

The rescue mission at my husband’s place of employment started off with a bang. Three of the five kittens were trapped almost immediately. The next day we got mom. We also got a “bonus cat” that we certainly did not expect. In my kennel cat room there was a cage... Continue reading

The next day was Tuesday. Husband had gone to work on Sunday to discover mom cat and kittens. On Monday, three of the kittens were caught quickly and easily. But that’s where things changed. Husband got off work Monday night at midnight and put the trap in his vehicle. Tuesday... Continue reading

The final travel day home from our vacation was on a Sunday; Husband had to work the evening shift that very day when we got home. When he got to work he contacted me because a tabby cat who had disappeared a couple of months before was back at his... Continue reading

(Note – I left you last Thursday with a tease about some more good news that would be on the blog today. I’ll actually do that post NEXT Monday. In order to tell the whole story of the latest rescue mission, I’ll need all four days of blogging this week.)... Continue reading
