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 love cats.

If you look to the right and down a bit, you'll my latest Fund the Cats fundraiser on the sidebar.  You can click it to go to the Youcaring.com site and read up on why it is this time I'm trying to raise funds.   But I will tell you right here why.  Or.....even easier....

For decades I have suffered through the holiday season, aching for all the things it boasts of--family, love, joy, togetherness. Yet I've always been alone on Christmas, as long as I can remember.  I try to swallow down the big lump in my throat of loneliness that wells up, and angrily wipe the tears from my eyes.  So I

I'm not much into celebrating the historical significance of Thanksgiving.   The Pilgrims and Indians may have eaten together once, but we all know how that turned out for native people's with the conquest of America by Europeans. Also, I can't help it, when I see the warm fuzzy, often religious tinted gatherings of fami

The final count--32 cats.  I caught them all, at least I think I did, at the Lebanon colony, with a final yank of the drop trap cord from 40 feet out in a noisy vicious windstorm that came up. Tbere were only two known volunteers left by then, a Siamese, and a younger black tux.  They'd buddied up, in the face of the dis

I agreed to trap another Lebanon colony a couple weeks back.  Nice couple.  Husband is the catman of the couple.  25+ cats in the colony, that started with a couple of strays they fed starting not quite two years ago.  And now......Now there are close to 30 cats. It's a happy colony and the cats look healthy.  Most ar

I am preparing myself. Miss D spent the entire day at the vet, who, with some detective work and the right tests seems to have narrowed down what might be ailing her.  She believes it will be digestive lymphoma, but the other possible culprit---bacterial enteritis. She ordered the blood tests done 8 months ago, from the

Thank you to everyone who has donated on the current fundraiser, which you can see at the top of the page on the right sidebar, for the Six Cat Dentals.  Soloman became the first of those six to get his teeth cleaned. Soloman is 8 years old and a kind hearted male kitty who once went to a home in Eugene with a woman who c

Adorable wonderful Viktor is still waiting on a home over at Heartland.  Heartland Humane in Corvallis is overloaded right now in cats. Please Please go adopt Viktor!  He wants indoor only loving playful home!

I had my yearly doctor visit today.  I made the appointment ten days ago and just happened to awaken this morning with vertigo. Vertigo is not dizziness, in case you've never experienced it. Vertigo vanishes reality.  The world goes topsy turvy.  It hit this morning when I was just up and slammed me into the door befo

Almost a year ago now, I took three cats from a Lebanon neighborhood to a Portland rescue, to reduce the load on a Lebanon woman feeding the neighborhood abandons, which in that area, are many.  Two of the three got homes rather quickly, but the 3rd, newly named Bronco Billy, (was Smokey before) had an enlarged nose.  I h

My bush, sagging from ice.  Freezing rain is right now hitting my street.   I hate freezing rain.  Turns roads into skating rinks and brings down trees and power lines.  My roof is sound, held up to 15 inches of snow last February.  I have no reason to worry. Yesterday I climbed up on the roof and slid around the ed

About ten days ago, I saw a car pull up in front of dead Jack's place.   I was bored and curious (nosy) and went out to talk to the woman, peering through the front window blinds as best she could. She's looking for a house and on foreclosure sites, she said.  She and her guy are buying a house.  She was really looking

Miss D is a dear. I know I can't keep her alive forever but I wish I could. I love her. She's old and thin from bouts with diarrhea from unknown cause, most likely food allergy.   She's been to a vet three times over it, and that isn't easy on her, because she does not cooperate at the vets' and has to go under light ane

Fall is here!  Most of my Maple's leaves are down now.  Oaks drop their leaves first, I think, around here.  They are mostly brown and down, as I saw, on the streets I walked this morning, trying to keep active.  I took my camera along as incentive to go in the first place. At first I looked for turning leaves, but bec

Tomorrow is Halloween.  Whooptidoo!   I have not bought candy so far.  I have some candy someone sent me, when they sent me some cat treats including dried fish flakes that I've been munching. I can put out some of that if I don't get more. I do not buy candy to give out for Halloween until the day of, in fact, just an h

How did the tree hold up in the severe winds that tore through the valley on Saturday?   I stood out in my driveway by the car half the day, in awe, watching the trees bend and whip under the force of the gale blowing through. Mary's Peak, over west of Corvallis, registered a 91 mph gust. I'd moved my car to my driveway

Remember when I followed a lactating feral mom, over in Corvallis, to a deck, and then coaxed her three two week old kittens to where I could pull them out  from under the deck, while laying flat out on it, with my arm extended under it?  Then used the healthiest two the next day to trap their mom?  Remember that?

No kidding.  Here it comes.  Here it is--the never ending gray drear. Got your anti depressants filled for the Oregon winter? Why shouldn't we just hibernate through it? Save a lot of everything. Today, rain poured down in sheets.  More rain than we need.  We're already over our normal quota for October.  Enough al

Some how I have to keep on. These days it is hard.  I am too alone.  I look ahead and see nothing but the same--struggles to make it caring for these cats, to feed and clothe and house myself, keep the car running so I can get what I need and possibly escape this freeway sprawled suburb town now and then. I have the pho

I have no defense of this video except I am bored and I think its darn cute. Viktor surprised me. Man alive, can he ever jump!

Missy, the skinny little gray torti I worried so over for months, watching her deteriorate and wobble when she walked, by the rabbit hoarders house, has died.  She was euthanized at Heartland after they found mouth and throat tumors consistent with cancer, large and painful, I was told, when I gave the permission. She was

How beautiful was Boots, just a teen, in December of 2012, when I took him to be fixed, along with his two siblings.  Now he is weak from parasites and his ears and face are crusted and his body erupted in rashes. Do you recall, back in late July, the Albany police raided a home down on Marian and removed 200 rabbits and

I said goodbye to summer a month ago.  Then it came roaring back, with some fall issues attached. Now the news said enjoy your last day of niceties, because the rain will be here to stay tomorrow.  Ok.  If you say so. Foggy this morning.  Fog means sun once it burns through.  Unless you live on the coast.  The fog c

Any good day can go south and turn bad. Yesterday, Shady's day was already sour. Sunday I noticed her out of the corner of my eye.  Her mouth was open and she was pawing wildly at one side of her mouth.  I stared, incredulous.  One fang was hanging  low like a vampire.  Yikes! So I watched her, that evening and t

You must have known, if you know me, that I might take another trip into the mountains on behalf of the roaming dog.  See my previous post for history about the dog's tale. Yesterday was the day I took off.  I was going to go over the weekend, but I never got the steam.  I'd hurt my back again helping the neighbor with

Last night, scanning facebook, I notice a post out of Eugene.  Someone in a rescue group is reposting something they found on craigslist.  It's a dog.  The guy posting lives in Vermont.  He camped up at Clear Lake in Oregon over three weeks ago and could not get something out of his head.  A dog. A dog, shy, skittish

Teeth and cats go together.  Cats have teeth.  I have teeth and I love cats. So I went to the dentist today, for a checkup, since my coverage may or may not be ending soon. No cavities!   Yay! But the assistant, oh no.  She had told me when I went in the first time I had my teeth worked on about a year and four mont

I now understand why I thought my partial dental coverage was ending and why it really isn't.  It's a switch in what part of dual insurances will pay for it.  I think.  My understanding of insurance and government language and policies is willfully close to ignorance.  I cannot get a grasp of the language involved or ev

Starr is doing great after her teeth cleaning and seven extractions!  Starr says THANK YOU to everyone who donated to help her.
