If you read here, it must be because you love animals. I want to take today to thank every single person who cares about my work. The fact that you read here and care about all of the animals I write about is what helps me do the work I... Continue reading

(Let me start with this. Thank you for your sweet and supportive comments about the loss of our Mandy dog. I always appreciate you all so much.) Tad and Enoch were best buds from the very beginning. They started out in my bathroom. And they were immediately friends – eating,... Continue reading

Mandy was 14 years old. She had struggled with a hip problem for months. Of course, I had her on all of the meds appropriate for the condition. About three weeks ago, I noticed that she started having trouble with the front leg on the same side with the bad... Continue reading

Two days from now I need four cats from the property to fill the surgery slots I reserved. So far I have ONE. This is making me quite nervous. But at least I do have one. On Thanksgiving morning, I heard from the man at the property. He said he... Continue reading

Definition of kismet - destiny; fate. It’s possible you remember the story of my Wisher Kizzie. I’ve always called him Kizzie, but the name I gave him was Kismet. The way he ended up here was definitely fate. Well, today I’m going to introduce you to another Kismet. I guess... Continue reading

Four of the six cats who had their surgeries last week have been released back onto the property. I kept the very young gray-and-white, longer-haired female and one of the Russian blue toms. I know chances are so slim as to be ridiculous, but I’m gonna ask . . .... Continue reading

Let me start by saying thank you for the advice and confidence that came from some of the readers of last week's post. Honestly it helps to know that you guys are out there hoping and believing as I continue to chip away at the feral cat colony where I’m... Continue reading

Well, it’s not good news this morning. It’s almost November and I have surgery spots held for the TNR cats at the property a few miles from my home. I started trapping again on Sunday afternoon and evening. Trapped yesterday as well. And I have ONE cat at this point.... Continue reading

We’re about to charge headlong into The Holidays. I usually try to do some posts in the spirit of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. But starting next week, I’ll be back to trapping at the property where I’m doing TNR. I have surgery spots scheduled for the first part of November.... Continue reading

I’m excited to continue to report to you about the cat property where I’m doing TNR. At the end of my Wildlife Wednesday post last week, I noted that I DID get the additional four cats I needed for the six surgery slots I had held for Thursday. Those six... Continue reading

There has only been one new addition at Wild Angels Wildlife Rescue. A young raccoon was brought in because she was limping. She is doing well now. The fawns are still doing great. Their spots are just beginning to fade. You might remember two tiny squirrels coming in. At first,... Continue reading

Hello Friends! If you read here last week you know that my fundraising goal was reached for my spay & neuter project. This is a group of cats on a property only a few miles from where I live. We discovered the breeding colony when we talked to the property... Continue reading

How about I just go ahead and start this week off by telling you . . . WE REACHED GOAL!!!!!!!!! I know the GoFundMe campaign does not show $2000. But I had two donations come in through my Paypal donate button on my blog and three cash donations. And that... Continue reading

I do the yard sales on the parking lot of the shelter where my daughters work. I have these yard sales on Saturdays when the weather permits. I wasn’t able to have one last Saturday because of rain. But the Saturday before, I had a nice hot yard sale. Setup... Continue reading

Before I could launch my GoFundMe campaign to raise money for spays & neuters, I needed an estimate of the number of cats and kittens on the property. While there, I noticed a young Russian Blue kitten. I told Older Daughter that I knew a couple who was interested in... Continue reading

I have nothing but good news to share with you today. Last week I told you about the property with all of the breeding cats. This discovery came about because of a mom dog and her two pups. The pups are waiting to be chosen for adoption. And mom dog... Continue reading

I have such amazing Friends who support Winnie’s Wish. Recently, there’s been a string of Wish List gift deliveries. I can’t begin to tell you how much these gifts are appreciated (and needed!). This Wish List gift came several days ago for Winnie’s Wish. Naomi – THANK YOU. And you... Continue reading

There are breeding cat colonies all across this land and around the world. None of these cats and kittens deserve to live like that. The males spend their lives fighting. The females spend their lives continuously pregnant or nursing. Litters of four, five, six are born only to have half... Continue reading

I didn't sleep much last Wednesday night. (See yesterday’s post.) I started trying to come up with a plan. I started thinking that maybe I can try to do my own fundraiser, try to get enough money to spay/neuter ALL of the cats. Before I could start working out a... Continue reading

Get comfortable, Friends. I hope you will stay with me through this entire story. It will take more than one day to tell it. And by the end of it, I’ll be asking for your help. We have to go back about a year and a half to start this... Continue reading

I’ve mentioned before that baby squirrel season comes twice a year. There are babies in the Spring. And then there is a second wave of babies born in the Fall. Nearly every baby squirrel that Older Daughter has ever had at Wild Angels is the victim of the same scenario.... Continue reading

I had been beating myself up over a recent decision. During one of my many ruminations, it dawned on me that I didn’t need to continue to feel bad about this. I even scanned back through my Spring and Fall foster kitten blog posts. Sure enough. I had success WAY... Continue reading

Against the odds, the five baby mice found in a bag of quik-crete have all survived. Older Daughter knew these babies had a much better chance of survival if she could get them to the day when their eyes opened. At about this time, they can start feeding themselves. She... Continue reading

Last week I told you that Andrea (Celestial Kitties) was having a comment-a-thon to benefit Winnie’s Wish in celebration of her three kitties’ birthday. I had planned to do an announcement about the success of that comment-a-thon today. But Andrea ended up in the hospital on Sunday with kidney stones.... Continue reading
