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

I haven’t been feeling all that great and I’ve let some things go. Blogging is one of those things. I think the long Winter has finally caught up with me. First, we lost our Jazzy cat in December. Then in January, a horrible stretch of Wisher illnesses went on for... Continue reading

Friends. I'm not going to blog much today. I have another sick cat. This one is not a Wisher but one of our own. Daffy stopped eating her normal amount a little over two weeks ago. We thought it was because one of our other cats was bullying her, but... Continue reading

I had hoped to be writing to you about catching the tabby cat who has been spotted here in the country on our property. However, no luck so far. I’ve written about the first sighting in the field across from our house. Then there were all of the paw prints... Continue reading

Two starlings. Soon to become scores. I’m not sure if any of you had a similar experience to ours. Our three back-to-back snows, along with below-zero wind chill temperatures, caused something that started off as a normal experience here. Every time we have much snow, we get a huge number...

Last week I wrote about a tabby cat I had seen (once) on our property here in the country. He was hunting in the field in front of our house. I only saw him the one time and then no more. So I had assumed he was only passing through... Continue reading

the Winnie's Wish cathouse I have good news to report about Slate. I added an addendum to my blog post last Tuesday morning when Older Daughter and I had a conversation about how terrified Slate continued to be at her house. Older was trying to give me a break by... Continue reading

Well Friends – we’ve definitely been in a rough patch here. You know that Bunny got very sick. I was just getting her back on her feet when another Wisher, Smokey, went down. He ended up at the vet exactly one week from when Bunny was there. I brought him... Continue reading

A few weeks ago, Bunny became very sick. The vet looked at bloodwork and gave meds and sent me home with meds and fluids. Bunny eventually recovered. But while she was recovering, my big ol’ Smokey boy became ill. I was noticing a mucous-like diarrhea in the litter boxes in... Continue reading

Last week was a bad week. Bunny had mostly recovered, but Smokey (another Wisher) became very sick. Then a family member had surgery. Not sure when I will be back to blogging. Smokey is finally making a turn for the better. A picture of big sweet Smokey before he got... Continue reading

Last Tuesday I wrote that one of the Wishers, Bunny, wasn’t well. On the Friday morning before, I found her vomiting. I moved her to a cage so I could watch her and know how she was eating and eliminating. It’s not unusual for a cat to vomit. I assumed... Continue reading

Hello fellow animal lovers. We now have 2020 in the rearview mirror. I know 2021 will be a better year – surely. I hope those of us who love animals will challenge ourselves to help both domestic animals and wildlife in the year (and years) to come. I’m going to... Continue reading

June 2017 – I see a cat in the deep grass beside the road near my home. Set my trap for days. July – A black cat shows up in my yard at the edge of The West Woods. Set my trap for days. October – Younger Daughter sees a... Continue reading

Andrea’s Holiday Auction and Fundraiser ended last week. I’m about to announce how much that auction brought in. But first, let me share this. The cats of Winnie’s Wish call this place home. This is where these 32 cats will spend the rest of their lives. I try to make... Continue reading

First let me thank you for your sweet comments on yesterday’s post about Jazzy. I know all of you are animal lovers and you know what it’s like to lose one. Your kindness is appreciated. But I promised happier things for today – Merry Things. We have kittens again at... Continue reading

I wrote this in the summer of 2011: Jazzy is a kitten who came to us with multiple problems. She had Calici and Rhinotracheitis. She did not eat on her own when she came here and had to be force-fed for a very long time. She was given subQ fluids... Continue reading

Our Jazzy cat is still with us. I don’t know for how much longer. Jazzy came here as a foster kitten 9 ½ years ago. She was truly one of those miracle kittens who lived when all odds were against it. She has never been a robust cat, but she's... Continue reading

So yesterday I got my “December” post up on the blog. I was having a rather bad morning. One of our family kitties is rapidly declining. Jazzy is doing very poorly. In addition, our Ressie dog had been vomiting since midnight and was continuing to do so. Luckily I had... Continue reading

December 1st! This year (2020) has been a struggle. It’s been a struggle for everyone, but more for some than others. I’ve heard people say they want the fun and excitement and beauty of the holidays to bring them some joy, even if only for a moment here and there.... Continue reading
