Today I will reintroduce you to Winnie’s Wisher Fannie. Here is the beginning of her story, from July 2017: My husband stopped by his brother’s house to drop something off. As he pulled into the driveway, he noticed a cat way in the back of the yard. He and his... Continue reading

For a little over a year now, I’ve been re-introducing you to the cats of Winnie’s Wish. I wonder if you remember a TNR project I took on in the Fall of 2018? Many of you helped me by giving your dollars to the cause. That story played out on... Continue reading

Last week I re-introduced you to Toast. He and Peeta were adopted together five years ago and then recently returned to Winnie’s Wish. Today I’ll remind you of how Peeta became a Wisher. In June of 2014, Husband was helping his brother do some clearing after a big storm. They... Continue reading

I have been slowly re-introducing you to all of the (now 33) Wishers. These kitties will live out their lives here. Over the last couple of weeks I have told the story of Toast and Peeta being returned after five years in a home. This week and next, I'll do... Continue reading

I was heartbroken when Toast and Peeta were returned. We had a rough start. They’ve been back here now for about a week and a half. Toast came around more quickly. He wanted my attention so badly. Peeta only hid (in the hidey-hole basket I put in his cage). Over... Continue reading

This is how I ended a post in March 2015: This is the BEST thing that can happen here! The post was about two Wishers (real buddies) being adopted together. Now I’m starting a post with the opposite of those words – This is one of the worst things that... Continue reading

Tinkerbell became a Wisher almost 7 years ago. She came on the Rescue Railroad from the abandoned hotel in Florida. Most of you know the story of the hotel and our efforts to rescue a handful of cats from a terrible situation there. As I started putting this post together,... 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 say this. I was afraid when I transitioned Winnie’s Wish from rescue/shelter to sanctuary, folks might not see the need to support the Wishers anymore. After all, there... 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

Before I start today’s post, I want to let everyone know that I always read every single comment on Facebook and here at the blog. So I’ve had a heart full of gratitude for all of the supportive comments, the positive thoughts, and the prayers for my Dad. He continues... Continue reading

Last week I managed a short post primarily to help send traffic to Andrea’s wonderful holiday auction to benefit Winnie’s Wish. But a single line in that post elicited over 50 comments here and on Facebook. I mentioned the reason I was not able to spend any time at the... Continue reading

Hello Friends. Last week I didn’t blog. And I won’t be writing much today. My dad is very ill. I haven’t been at the computer in over a week, and I can’t see anything getting back to normal any time soon. I’m trying to get a few words out today... Continue reading

In March of 2016 I wrote a post titled Fate of a Damaged Angel*. I am going to copy and paste most of that post here. There are three posts that I wrote in February of 2016 which tell Angel’s entire story. They are worth reading if you haven’t already.... Continue reading

Thank you for stopping back by today. As most of you know, Andrea of Celestial Kitties is a BIG supporter of Winnie’s Wish. She informed me a couple of days ago that she was putting together an auction to benefit the cats here. Andrea’s auctions are famous. This auction will... Continue reading

Sunspot became a Wisher nearly three years ago. She was one of the many cats and kittens trapped at my mother-in-law’s house over the years. That house has been sold and I haven’t been out there for a couple of years now. Sunspot was one of the last to be... Continue reading

Sallie is a dilute calico who came to Winnie’s Wish in October of 2012 as an older kitten. She was hanging around the place of employment of Younger Daughter’s boyfriend at the time. (many years ago, long since an ex-) Because the then-boyfriend had been exposed to this family, he... Continue reading
After problems with our computer (resolved), we now have a problem with our internet. Apparently we have really old equipment. For days our internet is running SO slowly that I wait for long periods for things to post. And pictures won't post at all. The company is supposed to be... Continue reading

Goldie is deaf. I certainly did not know that when she first became a Wisher. She was one of the Florida Hotel Cats. In May of 2013 we headed to Florida as always. I had connected with my contact person down there (Cheryl) and the plan was for us to... Continue reading

Last week I re-introduced you to Wisher Isis. She came to Winnie’s Wish in the Summer of 2012. Less than a year later, another cat came to Winnie’s Wish. I sure didn’t know then that this kitty – Quinn – would be the lifelong partner of Ms Isis. They have... Continue reading

Today’s highlighted Wisher is Isis. You see that I did not title this post with her name (as I have every other post this year). And I’m sure you can immediately see why. It is unfortunate that the word “Isis” now carries such a horrifying image. It was not the... Continue reading

It’s been a busy week, and I wasn’t able to get the pictures and story together for another Wisher update post. But I do want to mention this. Winnie’s Wish received this gift in celebration of Finn’s one year adoption day! Finn was a Winnie’s Wisher who was adopted by... Continue reading

In June, I did a Wildlife Wednesday post that included a joyous story about Older Daughter’s four fawns that she raised this year. They were successfully released. Then one day in May all four walked out of the field into the edge of her yard. It was so touching. We... Continue reading

Halo came to Winnie’s Wish in the Summer of 2011 as one of fifteen cats and kittens from the same location. I won’t retell that story, but if you haven’t read it or have forgotten that group (the largest group I’ve ever taken in all at once), you can read... Continue reading
My computer died. So I'm trying to compose this blog post on my phone which is very difficult for me. I hope to be back next week. Continue reading
