There is a slow progression at Wild Angels. Animals are in outdoor enclosures. They are learning to feed themselves and are having almost no contact with Older Daughter at this point. These are the things that get them ready to be released. Because there are really no new happenings at... Continue reading

I wonder if you remember me mentioning a tabby cat that has been spotted in these parts here and there since February. I will refer to this cat as “it” since I don’t know if “it” is male or female. I first saw this cat the first of February. It... Continue reading

Last week I said I wanted to introduce you to a precious little kitten who has been through WAY too much. But there’s a happy ending so I feel good about sharing this story with you. A couple of weeks ago, Older Daughter was home (on her day off from... Continue reading

There is a story for today. But I thought first I’d give you an update on the various critters at Wild Angels. Everybody is in an outdoor enclosure at this point except for the two starlings. They spend some time outdoors and some time indoors at this point. The little... Continue reading

I did not expect to be writing again about Peep. First let me say thanks for your comments about our big ol’ giant boy. And thanks to those of you who reached out with advice. I sure appreciate it. Everyone was so kind and helpful that I wanted to give... Continue reading

In a post a few weeks ago, I blogged about various health problems in the aging population here. At the end of that post, I mentioned that although our Peep cat is not old (very young, in fact), he had a pretty serious UTI. He received an antibiotic injection at... Continue reading

Most of the babies at Wild Angels have moved to outdoor enclosures. The raccoons are of two sizes (ages) so the two bigger ones are in one enclosure and the three smaller ones are in a separate enclosure. The opossum has moved to an outdoor enclosure as well. I went... Continue reading

Thanks for your comments about the Wisher here named Isis. Yes! I named her for the Egyptian goddess. And I liked what you said, Mary – “Don't worry - some of us (...) remember Isis as an important Egyptian goddess." And John , that “Egyptian mythology has endured for thousands... Continue reading

I’ve mentioned that I have an “aging” population of cats – both Wishers and our own personal kitties. Geriatrics is that which deals with the health and care of the old. Along with knowing that I have 40+ (between ours and the Wishers) cats to take through the ends of... Continue reading

You might remember that once upon a time, Older Daughter had a little girl raccoon who walked with a wobble. It was the summer of 2018 and there were lots of baby raccoons at Wild Angels. I no longer remember which group this little wobbly one was in. It almost... Continue reading

Last week I mentioned that Andrea put out a plea for folks to wish me a happy birthday by sending paypal gifts or things from the Wish List for the cats of Winnie’s Wish. I showed you the Wish List gifts last week. I now have a list of people... Continue reading

Last week I told you that Older Daughter had taken in even more babies to her Wild Angels Rehab. The week turned out to be quite overwhelming, partially for reasons that had nothing to do with wildlife. Here’s how Older’s week went. The local animal control officer called Wild Angels...

My birthday was at the end of May. You might recall that I made a decision to transition Winnie’s Wish from a rescue/shelter to a sanctuary a while back. There were a couple of reasons for this. One, I have a full house. But also, I’m aging. I certainly don’t... Continue reading

I have quite a story for you today. I’ll also do a quick update on the animals I introduced you to last week. In fact, let me start with that. Older Daughter has recently taken two raccoons, then a third raccoon, an opossum, and two baby starlings. At this writing,... Continue reading

There has been a flurry of wildlife activity at Wild Angels. Let’s see . . . where to start. There are three baby raccoons at Wild Angels. Two little babies were in someone’s yard. The person put them in a box at the base of a tree. He left them... Continue reading
I'll be here tomorrow with a Wildlife Wednesday post. Continue reading

As I said yesterday, it has been a while since I blogged. During this time, Older Daughter took in a new animal to Wild Angels Wildlife Rehab. Most of the time Older gets calls about baby wild animals. It’s unusual but it does happen that she will get a call... Continue reading

I was taking a little break from blogging, but I just had to post after some wonderful gifts arrived here for the Wishers! My blogging break was mostly because all winter long I seemed to have so many scary and sad things (illnesses and losses) to write about. But recently... Continue reading
Taking a short break from blogging. Hope all is well in your world! Continue reading

Last week I did a special Thursday post about Andrea’s beautiful kitty sofa bed and her commissioned work – all to benefit Winnie’s Wish! The announcement had been made as to who won the raffle. The next morning I saw a comment that Andrea left on that post. Here’s what... Continue reading

This is the first chance I’ve had to mention Andrea’s Raffle to benefit Winnie’s Wish. Andrea made a beautiful fancy cat bed and sold tickets to make money for the Wishers. Here is a picture of that bed. Amazing! I have said many times on this blog that I am... Continue reading

A quick note before I start today's post. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind words about Daffy. I've read all of the comments several times. It's been almost a week now that she's been gone. I miss her so much. But I've been here many... Continue reading

Thank you for all of the kind and supportive comments on last week’s post about Daffy. We lost her on Thursday. I posted on Tuesday, and on Wednesday I knew she was worse. We were down to only one of the anti-vomiting medications; the other one had stopped working altogether.... Continue reading

It’s Spring and I really hope the new season brings with it the winds of change. It’s been a LONG Winter here. I’ve now mentioned this numerous times but please allow me one more. Our Jazzy cat became ill and died in December. This was followed in January and February... Continue reading

I haven’t been blogging for a couple of weeks so I’m behind in reporting the first Spring babies at Wild Angels. You might remember me saying that squirrels have TWO baby seasons – Spring and Fall. Sometimes the first babies at Wild Angels in the Spring are baby bunnies. But... Continue reading
