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

Last week I highlighted Kizzie – a bobtail, tabby, one-eyed Wisher who showed up here in 2014. He was an older, feral kitten who literally showed up at the front door of the cathouse. He was the first. There were three more to come after him. I eventually put together... Continue reading

At this time of year, Older Daughter is releasing the last of her wildlife babies. They have been in outdoor enclosures, and she has given them everything she can to assure their successful return to the wild. Older often sees her wildlife babies (now on the road to becoming adults)... Continue reading

Back to the sanctuary kitties of Winnie’s Wish! The highlighted Wisher of the day is Kizzie. He became a Wisher almost exactly five years ago. His given name was Kizmet because it means fate or fortune (I will remind you of why he received that name). But he quickly became... Continue reading

Last week I re-introduced you to Winnie’s Wisher Binks. He and two brothers and their mom came to Winnie’s Wish in 2016. Mom Betty Lou was adopted as was one of the boys – Bobo. Binks and brother Boy Blue are permanent residents here. These two are very close; I... Continue reading

I continue to re-acquaint you with the residents of the Winnie's Wish Sanctuary for Cats. If you look down the sidebar, you will see a cat named BoBo and a cat named Betty Lou. They are two of a family of four who came to Winnie’s Wish in March of... Continue reading

You remember there are LOTS of baby raccoons at Wild Angels. And for some reason, this year, there had only been one little opossum. Here is an update in pictures. Some of the raccoons have just moved into an outdoor enclosure; the younger group is still inside. The opossum continues... Continue reading

Over the last couple of weeks I have re-introduced you to two of a family of four felines who came to Winnie’s Wish in 2015. Their rescue story plays out over many blog posts which you can access in Archives: August 2015. There was a mom cat (Momma Monday) and... Continue reading

Last week I re-introduced you to Pippin. He was one of three kittens who came to Winnie’s Wish with their mother (Momma Monday). Pippin’s two siblings are Pipes and Clover. Pipes has a home (smile), and Clover lives with Pippin and Monday. This family came here in August of 2015.... Continue reading

It all started in August of 2015. My mom told me a sad story about a skinny tortie cat that grabbed a piece of bread that fell off of her bird feeder and ate it as fast as she could. Later Mom reported to me that she saw the tortie... Continue reading

Gandolf arrived in 2016 very close in time to when Winter (highlighted last week) arrived. Oddly, they were colored nearly the same – white and tabby, with those colors in nearly the exact same locations. And even odder than that – they are best friends. They did not come from... Continue reading

Today let me get back to Winnie’s Wish Sanctuary and the wonderful cats who live here. I started 2019 by telling you that I wanted to highlight each Wisher individually to reacquaint you with these darlings. So far I’ve blogged about Smokey, Snowflake, Slate, Finnick, Prim, and Rocky. Prim and... Continue reading

Two more abandoned baby raccoons have found their way to Wild Angels. I believe the last count on this blog was six. Now there are eight. A friend of Older Daughter’s had a friend who found a tiny baby raccoon (eyes still closed) in a park. At this age it... Continue reading

Hi Fellow Animal-Lovers! Today I’m going to stray (pun intended) from my current mission of highlighting the Winnie’s Wish kitties. I need to get the word out about my current group of fosters. I know that most of the readers of this blog live far from where I am. But... Continue reading

It has been a very raccoon-y Baby Season this year. But in the midst of all of the baby raccoons, there was the one little opossum. I wrote about him – he was so tiny that he went straight into the incubator. He was found when a wonderful person stopped... Continue reading

Last week I told you about one of The Untouchables here – Prim. There are two more Untouchables in the World of Winnie’s Wish. One of those two is Rocky. Rocky was a feral cat in my parents’ neighborhood. While we were trying to trap another feral cat and her... Continue reading

It’s been busier than usual for this early in Older Daughter’s wildlife Baby Season. This past week, Older increased her baby wildlife population again. The first to come was a baby bird. When she received the call, she told the people to look really hard for a nest near where... Continue reading

Prim is one of three littermates who came to Winnie’s Wish when they were older kittens – old enough to have developed feral ways. As I reported in Finnick’s post, this group was like nearly every feral group I’ve experienced. One tamed enough for adoption (Peeta), one tamed only enough... Continue reading

Last week I showed you the newest baby at Wild Angels (at the time) - a raccoon less than two weeks old. Older Daughter had just moved her three squirrels to an outdoor enclosure to begin the transition to freedom. So she had plenty of time for this little raccoon... Continue reading
