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

Now that I’m back to blogging, I will continue the stories of the cats who now call Winnie’s Wish their permanent home. I have transitioned from being a shelter with adoptions to being a sanctuary. The current cats will live out their lives here. They are not cats who would... Continue reading

Last Thursday, Older Daughter received a call from the shelter’s board president. She and her daughter were driving on a main road in the next county over. President saw a dead raccoon in the road just ahead. As she drove past the dead adult, she saw a TINY baby raccoon... Continue reading

After transitioning Winnie’s Wish from a shelter to a sanctuary, I started sharing the stories of the current (now permanent) Wishers with you on this blog. But when I ended up in the hospital, and during the aftermath, I wasn’t able to keep blogging. Then when I was up to... Continue reading
I'm feeling good enough to get back to blogging now. But several days ago our computer started doing some strange things. It is now almost not working at all. We will be trying to get it in for repairs this week. I sure hope we can get whatever is wrong... Continue reading

Readers of daily dose know that my older daughter is a licensed wildlife rehabber. She has dedicated a huge portion of every year to caring for injured wildlife and abandoned babies. The middle of Winter is about the only time of year that she is not up to her eyeballs... Continue reading
I have received emails from some of you inquiring into how I’m doing and wishing me well. Thank you so much. As far as what has been going on . . . I wrote this to a friend over the weekend. I’ll just copy & paste that description here so... Continue reading
Thank you for your kind comments. Unfortunately, sitting at the computer is still not terribly easy. I hope to get back to blogging next month. Miss you all. Continue reading
I haven't posted to this blog for the last couple of weeks. During the first of those two weeks, I was in the hospital. Then last week I was home, but not doing very well. I'll regain my strength and get back to blogging. Only recently I had started updating... Continue reading

I’ve started the process of re-introducing you to the cats of Winnie’s Wish. I wrote about Smokey first, then about his biological sister Snowflake. These two came here as part of a litter of four kittens, arriving a few months old and already mostly feral. Toast tamed enough to be... Continue reading

Now that Winnie’s Wish is 100% Sanctuary, I am writing about the Wishers in the form of an individual update on each one. Last week, I started the whole thing off with Smokey. In that post, I mentioned that Smokey had come here with three siblings – two brothers (Slate... Continue reading

A couple of weeks ago, I told you that I would start doing stories about the cats who will live out their lives here at Winnie’s Wish. But before I start this first story, let me tell you how much it meant to me to have your support over the... Continue reading

Maybe you remember a little foster kitten of mine – Tad. This is one of the first pictures I took of Tad. He is now nine months old. I’ve had him for eight of those. And I’m about to lose him. I didn’t write about Tad’s illness at the beginning... Continue reading

Last month I mentioned I would be sharing with you some changes that would be taking place here. I want to do that today. This may not come as a surprise to some of you. I’ve talked differently about Winnie’s Wish during the last year or two. Winnie’s Wish has... Continue reading
