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

The good news is that the baby squirrel is doing OK at this time. He appeared to have pneumonia early on, but Older and her vet have treated him and he is improving. Fingers crossed. The dove is still alive and seems to be doing well (so far). The bad... Continue reading

There are 32 cats here at Winnie’s Wish. There are also years of our own personal cats. For some reason, there just haven’t been that many orange ones. We haven’t had an orange cat of our own at all. And there are only three orange Wishers – Goldie, Peeta, and... Continue reading

My Butterscotch kitten is sick. She is back at the shelter – being watched and cared for. I have another foster kitten named Mango. My intense hope is that Butterscotch will be back to romp and play with Mango. In the meantime, Winnie’s Wish received a gift in memory of... Continue reading

A couple of weeks ago, Husband and I returned home from somewhere (can’t remember now) and Husband got out of the vehicle and headed for the lawn mower. I stepped onto the stones that lead to our front door. And there, right there on one of those stones, sat a... Continue reading

We had a storm last night that caused a power outage. Didn’t have power for a big part of the night and I haven’t had much sleep. But I do want to acknowledge a gift that came to Winnie’s Wish for the kitties here. The note said that the gift... Continue reading

Before I write about Older Daughter’s wildlife, let me say, AGAIN, how much it means to me to receive the comments you left on the post about Tiny. This one really got me because, well – he should still be here loving life as he did so so much. The... Continue reading

Several of you left such sweet comments on the post about my future with the sanctuary cats. Thank you so much. It truly helps to know you wonderful people are out there. At this particular time, most people don’t need a sad story. I think we all benefit from happy... Continue reading

Last week Winnie’s Wish received a large gift in memory of Momma Monday. It seemed like a good time to talk about what her death represents for me. Of course I miss her. So much. We had developed quite the routine together. But there is more to her death, and... Continue reading

I didn’t post to this blog yesterday because we did not have internet. We never got a clear answer about why, but we were without it all day. Back today, so here are a couple of pictures of the wildlife at Wild Angels. There are no updates. Everybody is doing... Continue reading

Eighteen baby raccoons this year at Wild Angels! All survived. All are doing great. And all but three have moved to outdoor enclosures. The first group of seven got to move to the really big raccoon enclosure. Five more moved into the middle-sized raccoon enclosure. Three siblings moved into the... Continue reading

FINALLY there are no new wildlife at Wild Angels this past week. Older Daughter is completely overwhelmed with one opossum, 6 fawns, and 18 baby raccoons. There was one fawn that came in to Wild Angels but she did not make it. She was found by some city workers in... Continue reading

Last Tuesday I wrote about a kitten who’d been brought into the shelter where my daughters work. She had a head injury and scrapes on the face and head. She couldn’t stand. In fact, she couldn’t hold herself upright at all. The most horrible part was that she cried continuously.... Continue reading

Settle in. It’s another LONG one. I’ll be writing for hours trying to fill you in on all of the wildlife stories. There is SO much going on at Wild Angels. Let me start with the sad news. I promise it gets better after this first story. Older Daughter received... Continue reading

I shouldn’t be doing this post. I fear that this baby won’t make it; that I’m putting this out there for all of us to very possibly have our hopes dashed and hearts broken. But I want to ask everybody who reads this to send positive thoughts and prayers for... Continue reading
