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

I mentioned in my last post that I would try to blog about once a month. Some of you suggested to me that just posting some pictures would be enough. And that is mostly what today’s post will be. There are some pictures of the Wishers and some pictures of... Continue reading

October is officially designated as Black Cat Awareness month. The hope is to promote adoption of black cats who, sadly, have lower adoption rates than other colors of cats. I think I’ve mentioned here on the blog that my younger daughter ONLY has black cats. She has adopted several over... Continue reading

I’ve known this day was coming. After spending a year writing blog posts about the many cats here at Winnie’s Wish, I wondered what I would write about next. As you all know, Winnie’s Wish is a sanctuary now – no cats going out, no cats coming in (I hope,... Continue reading

Sometimes Winnie’s Wish receives a gift in honor of a Wisher who is now living The Good Life with some wonderful family out there. Occasionally, a gift arrives “in memory of” a beloved pet. Mell is a longtime Friend of Winnie’s Wish. She supported my mission financially. And then not... Continue reading

Even though Fall brings a second squirrel baby season, this is the time of year when things begin to wind down for wildlife rehabbers. That doesn’t mean there isn’t work to do. There are all of the outdoor enclosures with juvenile critters in them. Those enclosures have to be cleaned... Continue reading

There happens to be a lot going on in our lives right now. Rest and relaxation are a longed-for commodity. Also, I simply do not have time to write much at this time. But I like to post something on Tuesdays even if it’s mostly pictures. Since I dragged all... Continue reading

I have blogged about Older Daughter’s baby squirrel. I explained that there are two baby squirrel seasons – Spring and Fall. So even though it seems like the wrong time of year for babies, with squirrels this is normal. The little guy that came in to Wild Angels had a... Continue reading

I haven’t had time to put together a blog post, but I did want to quickly update you on the orange foster kittens. They are still doing very well. I feel hopeful. Mango and Butterscotch Many of you know Timmy Tomcat. This gift arrived “for Butterscotch and Mango” from Timmy... Continue reading

It all started two months ago. A tiny orange kitten (Butterscotch) came into the shelter where my daughters work. She had a brain injury (among other injuries) and no one expected her to live. I said I would foster her if she did survive. She did. Another little orange kitten... Continue reading
