I am a Cat Woman. My self-appointed mission in life is to save the feline world! To accomplish this mission, I get cats fixed. Perhaps my mission might be slightly delusional. This blog is a mishmash of wishful thinking, rants, experiences as I remember them and of course, cat stories and cat photos. I have a nonprofit now, to help keep the cats here cared for and to fix community cats. The Happy Cat Club formed in 2015. Currently, we are on a mission to fix 10,000 cats.

I returned the 9 cats fixed Thursday yesterday morning. I'd gotten a decent nights sleep, I'll say, but often after clinics I have to "make up" sleep and since I don't do well at all, if sleep deprived, I knew it would hit me yesterday at some point.  Late afternoon, I was done, could not do another thing.

First off, I'll say Pepper scored big time.  Chelsea of Affordable Dog Grooming in Lebanon took over when I could not free Pepper of her mats and got it done!  Now she's fostering her through Felines First and Pepper is loving it!  In heaven! Next up, the gray girl, relinquished at the trailer park, is now in the capabl

This is a rant post.  If you can't handle it, don't read it. I've gotten 17 cats fixed at that trailer park in Sweet Home so far, plus five kittens, one teen, and now two old females were relinquished.  Six of those went to Heartland, one old gal, Pepper, is being fostered by Felines First, and Lucy is still here. So, t

I was back at the trailer park last night.  Some good it did.  Caught only one boy kitty in a trap.  But then went to a trailer where I'd seen an old gal outside on the porch.  I'd talked to the woman who really wanted someone to take her or find a way to get her euthanized, as her mats seemed insurmountable the woman h

Today, the first two cats in the 10,000 Cat Fix project are, well, getting fixed. White Sophie and Black Molly. LOL. The two tame kitty spays, with vaccines, flea treatment, worming and microchips, will cost my nonprofit, the Happy Cat Club, $80.  If you would like to contribute to the 10,000 Cat Fix project, click that

I was going nowhere with the nonprofit.   Ghostlike in the vast sea of people begging for money for causes.  Invisible even here in this small area. Then I came up with the big idea-Fix 10,000 cats.  Not like I haven't done it before, when I had Poppa funds to pay for fixes.  Took about ten years, got a couple hundred

You might want to take note, if you're thinking of adopting a kitten. Meet Willow, Bliz and Snow!!  They're off to Heartland later today and will be up for adoption there once they hit the magic two pound mark and get fixed. They're Sophie's kittens.  Sophie is another white female, down where I tried to catch the long

Here are the April stats for the Happy Cat Club.   The costs don't include food, litter and flea treatment for all the permanent fosters here or the food, gas involved in feeding the farm colony.   But I think we run a pretty tight ship, making the most of every penny in donations to help out cats.   10 of the cats helpe

The other company came.  Guy was courteous and knew his stuff. System was refrigerant undercharged.  He charged it up, by about 3 lbs, cleaned both units as there was some caking on the indoor unit coil, cleaned the filters, too, even though they were not bad, cleaned the outdoor unit, and even caulked the laundry vent t

There has been lots of change on the cul de sac.  The empty house at the end finally went up for sale and within a few months sold.  I don't know who moved in. The renters up near the cross street moved out, and within a few months, another family related to the owner moved in.  I don't know them and haven't met them.

They both came, that first time and startled me! Ducks in my yard? I live in a suburban cul de sac.  No water in sight. Lots of cement, barking dogs, cats, cars charging around, going too fast....but ducks? Granted, ducks are big here in town.  It's not uncommon to see them begging in busy parking lots, or businesses

I was back at the Sweet Home trailer park, to get more cats on Saturday. The weather was bleak, with down pours.  And thunder storms. What else is new. Picked up ten cats in all.  Plus five kittens.  I had nine or so, more than I figured we'd have, but the woman there who had requested help, really came through in gra

The visit from the HVAC company did not go well.   I didn't know what to think.  I am unfamiliar with HVAC systems and what can cause problems like I have experienced with my system (failure to cool, when it was hot). I had a couple of major worries over the visit. The first is why would he first tell us it was one thin

Another A to Z blog post day.  Weather is cloudy with humidity and possible thunderstorms later are predicted. But today, Q is for Questions. Because I'm full of them, after the HVAC tech came. First I was told the system was vastly under the correct pressure, and that it needed recharged.  But later, this was reversed

A to Z blog post again.  Are we done yet? P is for Peachy! Yup, Peachy. Well, how else would I describe another problem with the heat/cool system here? It's been blistering hot the last couple of days, almost 90 F in fact.  In April? But why didn't my heat pump cool the house, I wondered.  It tried, but it failed, a

Yes,  I'll say, it's another A to Z blog day. Getting it done early. O is for Ocean. Ocean?   The Pacific, that is.  The cold one, at least up north, where I live. You can survive, if you are swept away, due to the cold (from just below 40 degrees F to 50 degrees F) for only up to half hour, if you're lucky. Lots of

I am just slipping in under the midnight hour on the N post. I was gone all day. N is for Night Night.  Off I go to bed. I do have 18 minutes left to write this post.  No problemo. I was naughty naughty today and forgot, then procrastinated. But I made it.  And now its bedtime. Night Night.

Yup, it's getting to the end of the day, and I haven't done the M post. My mistake. Ha, ha, ha.  Cracking Myself up. I think I am going Mental, in fact.  Nothing new there. This A to Z thing is sending me down the creek.  Off to the funny farm. Ok, seriously now, M is for Music.   That'll do. Who doesn't like Musi

It's just another A to Z blog post. L is for Lactose. My digestive system can't tolerate Lactose.   And yet..... And yet last night, starved, since I'm doing this feast/famine diet, where you eat under 500 calories one day and normally the next, I gave in to the urge for a grilled cheese sandwich.  The cheese tasted a

Another A to Z blog post day. I better get at it, too. K is for Kitty. In this case, a gray tux girl kitty, whom I trapped with seven others last week, to be fixed.  Only she had a right ear tip, indicating she was already fixed.  However, she was in dire shape---skin and bones, dehydrated with severe diarrhea. Oh no!

It's an A to Z blog post day.   I'm getting lazy about it. J is for Jump! Like rent Jumps, occurring in Portland, and all over Oregon actually. This story made me cry.  It's about the rising rents in Portland.  A 66 year old woman is already working six days a week, but now her rent is going up over $300 a month.  An

It's just another A to Z blog post day.   Because of yesterday's trip to Portland.....

I drove up and back a couple of times, to deliver traps and sit and yack while traps

The last day and half, been busy.  Trapping a colony way up in Sweet Home, which is a 45 minute drive one way from here.  It's like trapping in Eugene, only Sweet Home is tiny compared to Eugene and east instead of south. The trailer park where I'm trapping is not unknown to me.  Years ago I trapped there, several times

Ah damn, another day, another letter of the alphabet in the A to Z challenge.  How'd I get trapped into this scene again.  I am loath to quit anything once I start.  Maybe that's a flaw and I need to try something new, like bagging the A to Z challenge right now. Not today. G is for Good Grief! As in Good Grief, Charl

Today is the F day for A to Z blogging. I'll go with a nice safe topic today. F is for Friends Who says cats are solitary creatures.  Somebody not in the know. Some are I suppose, probably those raised as single kittens. My cats here all have lots of friends.  But the friend cliques change, who likes who changes, who

Today's A to Z blog post will be a topic ripped from the news. I have homosexual friends.  And heterosexual ones.  All online.  I don't have a lot of real life friends. I don't care who sleeps with who.  None of my business, I think to myself.  Love in general is in short supply in our world.  Plus I read, all the tim

Another A to Z blog challenge post.  Today is D Day! Nope, not an invasion. Just a little something about my baby, Deaf Miss Daisy. The cat. Which is a C word. Yesterday, I left at 4:00 a.m. on a three hour drive with Deaf Miss Daisy and her best buddy Slurpy.  Off to the north coast and the affordable clinic.  We d

Another A to Z blog post.  Today is C day. C is for Catmobile and for Chevy! Not Fords, oh gawd no.  We grew up to believe Fords were evil. The Chevy versus Ford allegiances of that time were akin to today's Republican versus Democrat wars.  And like today's political spats, the war was about loyalty, not about functi
