If you like to read about wildlife, and if you have a lot of time on your hands, this post is for you. It’s going to take a while to introduce you to all of Older Daughter’s new wildlife. A couple of weeks ago I caught you up on all... Continue reading

This week it will be more like two Wildlife Wednesdays (one today - on a Tuesday). I have stories to tell tomorrow about new babies at Wild Angels. But today, I’m going to take a moment to write about the odd (and awful) Spring that rehabbers are having this year.... Continue reading

Wednesday of next week is my birthday. I’ll probably skip blogging next week. And today - I hope I don't disappoint you. I'm not blogging about animals. I want to post pictures of some of the beauty I am surrounded with. During this time in history, we’re all having to... Continue reading

So far this Wildlife Baby Season, Older has taken in a baby flying squirrel, a litter of bunnies, two baby raccoons, and a second litter of baby buns. She lost the first litter of bunnies because they were too young when she received them. But the squirrel and the two... Continue reading

Today I’m going to spend a minute reminding you of two Wishers who were returned in January. I was so very sad for them. I still am, of course, because even though they are here at Winnie’s Wish where they will be cared for til the ends of their lives,... Continue reading

About a month ago I did a post about some baby bunnies that Older Daughter had received. Baby bunnies do NOT do well without mother’s milk. The majority who are without mom rabbit do not survive. They need the protective antibodies that her milk provides. Unfortunately, Older lost all of... Continue reading

Lo and behold, I have now re-introduced you to all of the 33 kitties living here at Winnie’s Wish. Actually you’ve been re-introduced to 32, even though there are 33 here. One is in the witness protection program (smile). Today I’m going to post a few pictures of some of... Continue reading

Older Daughter has not received the volume of calls she usually has at this time of year. Of course, it’s a strange year. She did receive a couple of calls about baby opossums, but both calls came from a neighboring state. Older cannot receive wildlife across state lines so she... Continue reading
No post today, but I'll be here tomorrow long enough to show you a couple of CUTE wildlife pictures. Continue reading

[Let me first say that your comments on the loss of our Miracle dog were deeply appreciated. I know that all of you truly understand.] This will be a brief update post on the babies at Wild Angels. Let me get the tough news over with first. None of the... Continue reading

Last Tuesday morning, after two days of steep decline, we said goodbye to our Miracle dog. She was sixteen years old. Here is a picture of Miracle when we found her. She was covered in demodectic mange. Of all of our dogs over all of these years, she was the... Continue reading
No post today. Our 15-year-old Miracle has come to the end of her life. We have a nine o'clock appointment. Continue reading

It’s that time of year. Baby Season at Wild Angels. And the newest babies are just in time for Easter. Baby bunnies. I’d love to say how wonderful and cute and exciting to have these babies safe and sound at Wild Angels. But baby bunnies are not something you want... Continue reading

Last Tuesday I wrote about some gifts that had arrived here for Winnie’s Wish. Maria and Andrea sent gifts because of the pandemic. Those gifts were deeply appreciated of course. Then Andrea sent another gift to celebrate Leo’s Gotcha Day. But all of the gift had not yet arrived when... Continue reading

The first baby of Older Daughter’s wildlife baby season is also the first one of its kind. You know that Older has had squirrels many many times. Baby squirrels and baby bunnies are often some of the earliest babies of baby season. This season started with quite a surprise. Older... Continue reading

I am always thrilled when gifts from my Wish List arrive here for Winnie’s Wish. Sometimes someone sends a gift to celebrate the Gotcha Day of their cat(s) if adopted from Winnie’s Wish. Andrea has done a birthday gift drive for MY birthday a couple of times. Also, Christmas is... Continue reading

I don’t remember now exactly when this story started. I brought home a new Wisher last year in the late Summer. He had been eating at my parents’ house for a long time. I know he went through at least one Winter there because I remember my parents trying to... Continue reading

The Old Opossum that Older Daughter saved is no longer with us. She only lived a few days. One night when Older went to bed, Old Opossum was fine. The next morning, she was dead. No warning. It makes me sad that we didn’t find her sooner. She was completely... Continue reading

I’ve been re-introducing you to all of the cats of Winnie’s Wish. There are 33 of them. And I’ve almost written about every one. A little over a year ago, I introduced you to a cat that I took in after I stopped taking in cats. I was transitioning from... Continue reading

I have been feeding two opossums over the Winter. The cathouse and my kennel sit right next to each other. There is a small space under the kitten room addition at the kennel. There is a large space under the cathouse. I discovered late last Fall that an opossum was... Continue reading

A couple of weeks ago I told you that Older Daughter had received an email invitation from Baby Warm. Baby Warm is an organization that helps wildlife rehabbers (like my daughter) get incubators. The rehabber must do an online fundraiser, and if the goal is reached, Baby Warm sends out... Continue reading

Last year we didn’t get to take our wonderful vacation to Florida. But two years ago, when we were staying in a new location, I met a cat. Imagine that! I won’t retell the story; you can click here to read it if you choose. Here is an excerpt from... Continue reading

Last week I re-introduced you to Winnie’s Wisher Fannie. I told the story about how feral Fannie was trapped and has now been a Wisher for going on three years. But the story included that I trapped her two kittens at the same time Miss Fannie was trapped. Daisy Daffy... Continue reading

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
