There isn’t a lot to update you on in terms of the wildlife at Wild Angels. Almost all of the spring and summer babies have either been successfully released or are in outdoor enclosures preparing for their releases. Here is an updated picture of the two opossums that Older took... Continue reading

Not too long ago when I was writing an email to Andrea (Celestial Kitties; BIG time supporter of Winnie’s Wish), I shared with her a problem I’ve been having all summer long. Kitty Litter. So here’s what has been going on. I use A LOT of kitty litter!! A LOT!!... Continue reading

I’ve written more than once about the situation that confronts me now. For years and years, Winnie’s Wish was a rescue/shelter. I continued to take in cats and kittens that I rescued from homeless situations and gave them “shelter” until I could place them into loving homes. Then a while... Continue reading

This post starts off sad but things are improving. Last week, Older Daughter received a mom opossum with babies in the pouch. This poor opossum was found sitting in the middle of the road in a pool a blood. When Older received her, she could see that the injuries were... Continue reading

The work of a wildlife rehabber is something I know I can’t do. Of course, it’s just plain hard work. That part I would take on. (Not so much the up all night feeding part . . .) But it’s the emotional toll this work takes on the rehabber that... Continue reading

Older Daughter and I spoke daily last week about little Lincoln. He never had a “great” day; he was mostly up and down. But mid-week, Older noticed a slight change in him. He seemed to show a little motivation, talked to Older a little at feeding times, and even batted... Continue reading

Last week I told you about the two little black kittens that Younger Daughter took home in an attempt to save their lives. One little kitten (Bean) suffered from Failure to Thrive. In spite of all of that Younger Daughter did, that one didn’t make it. But the other tiny... Continue reading

I’ve been writing on Wednesdays for “Wildlife Wednesday,” but it’s been quite a while since I wrote a Tuesday post about the NON-wildlife around here. It’s been really hard to write ever since losing Little Roo in such a traumatic way. I only continued to write about Older Daughter’s wildlife... Continue reading

This week it was going to be exciting to report how many raccoons moved to outdoor enclosures. It’s exciting for them, obviously, but also for ME. Because when Older Daughter moves wildlife babies outdoors, her workload lessens a bit. Cleaning multiple crates (indoors) every day is more work than cleaning... Continue reading

It’s been a couple of weeks since I updated you about the goings on at Wild Angels. Well, there is hardly anything to talk about that doesn’t involve raccoons. I think I titled a post a few weeks ago – "Raining Raccoons." I should have waited to use that title.... Continue reading

Let me start with the bad news. Last week I wrote about three baby raccoons that came to Wild Angels after being without their mom for several days. An air conditioner repairman found the mom dead and then several days later discovered the babies. When Older Daughter received them, they... Continue reading

Good news and not so good news – let’s do the second one first. Older Daughter received a call from the veterinarian (Dr. B) who works with the animals at the humane society where my girls work. Dr. B received a call from a man who works on air conditioners.... Continue reading

There isn't much to write about today. I'm finding it difficult right now to write about the animals here with me - my dogs, my cats, the Wishers and the rescue donkeys and pigs. I'll find my way back to it soon enough. I did not, however, want to pass... Continue reading

The last two weeks I’ve posted my Wildlife Wednesdays even though I was in too much pain to write about losing Little Roo. In fact, the Wednesday after his death, my post was already written as I’d done it a couple of days before – so all I had to... Continue reading

It has taken me two weeks to be able to write about this. I thought I could do this story last week but then I couldn’t. Without fail, over all of these years, I have found writing about a loss to be helpful. All of you reading here understand the... Continue reading

I’ve been writing about the new wildlife babies at Wild Angels - some baby bunnies (5), baby opossums(2), and baby raccoons(3). The baby bunnies have been released. The two little opossums are still doing really well. This is great news because they came in near death. The three baby raccoons... Continue reading

You remember that a few weeks ago, Older Daughter’s husband noticed a struggling buzzard below the bluff near the river. I did a raging post about this buzzard because it was dragging around a steel-jaw leghold trap, making it impossible for this bird to fly. Older Daughter and her husband... Continue reading

Winnie’s Wish has received some gifts. Each year, on their Gotcha Day anniversary, one-time Wishers Hershey and Frosting (now Felicity) send a special gift to commemorate their special day. Their mom and dad help them get this gift to the Wishers. This year it’s their NINTH Gotcha Day anniversary. Wow!... Continue reading

Yesterday I wrote about my Wisher Rocky moving on to The Bridge. (Thank you all so much for your sweet, comforting comments.) We discovered in the last days of his life that he was a very old cat. The old move on, and new ones come. And today’s post is... Continue reading

Yesterday I had to say goodbye to one of my precious Wishers. My Wisher numbers were never supposed to get above 30, but somehow they crept up to 33. Of those 33 Wishers, three are known as my “Untouchables.” Though many of the cats here started as ferals or semi-ferals,... Continue reading

Hi Friends. This won't be a long post. But I wanted to update you about the buzzard that is now in Older Daughter's care - a buzzard who was trying to survive with a steel-jaw leghold trap on its foot. The foot was broken off in the trap. But the... Continue reading

I’m going to start this post with the story itself. And then I’m going to end with a rant. Bear with me. And WARNING. This post and its pictures are graphic. Late Saturday afternoon, after a day of nonstop work, I sat down for a break, cup of tea in... Continue reading

Today’s post will be short. But I’ll be back tomorrow with a Wildlife Wednesday post. And I AM NOT happy about the subject matter for that post. Today, however, I am very pleased to report that I am now petting Neo! Yep. Not long, drawn-out love fests or anything of... Continue reading

This won’t be a long post. But it was so cute I had to share. You’ve read about the tiny squirrel that came to me for help. Older Daughter never names the wildlife, but she called this little gal Tiny Dancer. A while back I told you that Tiny Dancer... Continue reading

Today I’m going to share a special relationship that exists in my home. This little post won’t be about the Wishers. But it’s still about two little rescued souls. Rolly is one of my dogs; he was found as a tiny puppy on the back of a garbage truck, tied... Continue reading
