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. Happy Cat Club formed in 2015. Currently, we are on a mission to fix 10,000 cats.

This afternoon, when I went to retrieve the cats I took up this morning to be fixed, my friend who places barn cats met me at the clinic.  She was there to pick up the two Sodaville adults spayed today, but she also picked up my beloved fivesome of orange kittens.  Oh how I will miss them.  She delivered them to ARCF (An

Saw this pair when up trapping kittens in Sodaville. The weather?  Raining Leaves!  The mournful sound you hear part way through is probably just a lonely Big Foot.  We get that here in Oregon. Just some leaves floating on the river. Please send toilet paper!  I'm out.

Cougars are being caught on trail cams all over. The usual places and some not so usual ones. This morning there are more posts about cougars being seen near Sodaville and a comment on the post stated one was seen in Waterloo at 4:45 a.m.  I'm trying to find out where in Waterloo.  Not that it really matters.  They've

Ah, what a game. The moves I must make, many steps in advance, to ensure the reservations I get are not wasted.  A chess game.  I need to make my moves.  I need to calculate my moves now to sync up cat fixing weeks into the future.  I love the game.  It's like visualizing a moving puzzle. The cat juggling that goes o

Finally, Rocky, who was abandoned at the county park months ago, is at Heartland, waiting there for a home.  There he can be seen by people who want a cat in their lives.  And what a cat he is too. Rocky is laid back and a hugger.   He loves other cats and people, despite what people have done to him in the past. I fi

Yes it was another big day yesterday for local cats.  I wore myself out, in fact just got up.  Barely.  And intend to do nothing all day. I took 11 to be fixed, and, after taking in five more sick kittens from Sweet Home, worked to bathe them and clean their ears out.   Meow Village had agreed to take them in, thank g

I was in love for a day and a half. I was again called by someone at the trailer park.  The same guy who had trapped four other tiny kittens and their mom, with his massive Little Giant trap.  And, in the mom's case, a pork chop thrown in the back as bait. Well it worked.  There was no way she could have eaten that por

Yesterday, six cats were fixed up at whs. I admit exhaustion had taken its toll on me by yesterday, dealing with the trailer park cats. Nonetheless, the first three girls from another large situation, were brought here Sunday evening, to be fixed yesterday.  She is not sure how many cats are on the property now.  At one

In the last few weeks, I've removed 30 cats from the trailer park.  A 31st cat, Seguro, a lactating female, was fixed and returned.  I haven't seen her again. In the time spent out there, I got complained to about the cats by multiple residents.  There are only a couple who care that I met.  Guess they'll have to find

Well, as of right now, 29 cats and kittens have left the trailer park. All cats there are now fixed, except one stubborn teen who refuses to enter a trap after seeing so many others go in and get trapped. There are some still there who need out.  Like one black short hair, like black tux Big V, and like another black.

Lucy died yesterday.  My dear sweet old girl. She'd gone down hill and could not control her bladder or bowels any longer. I made the decision which I absolutely hate doing.  I don't like to play god. Lucy showed up in a live trap over two years ago when I was trying to solve the Mountain Shadows trailer park problem i

It's Sunday.  I woke to old Lucy farting in my face. She's really really old. And I didn't need that kind of awakening. Yesterday, traffic on the freeway was bad.   Football games.  In Eugene (U of O---Ducks) and I think there was a home game in Corvallis too, although I don't keep up much. (that would be the Orego

I've been working hard trying to get the widow maker down.  It lays from maple, where it broke off, to birch.  Lately, it's been sliding. I'd been looking at manual chain saws, an arborist tool, as a possible solution.  They come with a chain saw blade attached to ropes at each end.  They come with a throw bag attached

A big black boy had suddenly arrived in the county park two to three months ago.  He startled me in the woods, he was so huge, big yellow eyes following my every move. He was very hungry so I fed him.   He'd eat all the food and want more.  He'd get so hungry if I didn't feed him, he'd be out trying to hunt the ground

I better post some photos of my own cats I figure, before they all die of old age. We're a retirement home now here.  The cats are all old. How about first I show the last cat I caught inside that old lady's filthy trailer.   I haven't named her yet.  I have three of the black ones here I either trapped or netted i

I'd left a trap set at the bar and continue to check it. Yesterday morning, I intended to pick it up, since there had been no action there since I caught the last kitten.   As I pulled in by the bar, I saw a woman dancing around foot to foot holding a white plastic bag in one hand the other raised in the air.  She was s

I was really exhausted yesterday, with people calling me, wanting more of me, or even for small questions, and I was not up to talk to people. I ran the torti mom and the last two kittens I caught there behind the bar, up to Portland, to meet ARCF foster person Lori in a parking lot and hand her and the kittens off.  This

It's been an exhausting but productive few days, I'll say. Best news?   Finally early this morning, I caught the final kitten behind the bar.  At least I hope its the last one.  Kitten 7.  A black tux boy.  I don't think there is an 8th after all.  I caught mom and kitten six day before yesterday, in an exhaustive e

I'm attached to Markus and Ziggy.  I trapped both of them in the parking lot a couple weeks back.  Well ten days back I guess it was.   They ate from a dumpster. I think at least Ziggy has a place to call home as soon as the lady's remodeling is over with.  She's got Scooty, Zig's sister. Here, they had terrible trou

I haven't been out much this summer.  On the lake that is.  Or anywhere else. I went about ten days ago, to the lake, and discovered my hand pump hose had lots of holes in it.   On top of that, the plastic handle for the hand pump had broken almost off.  I pumped and pumped and tried to get enough air into it for the

I am struggling with so many calls I cannot handle the stress sometimes. No, I cannot take in 20 plus cats, all unfixed, from a guy in Crabtree who has been foreclosed on and has to get out soon. No, I can't take 25 plus cats from an old woman who fed cats in a trailer park and is now in hospice.  On and on and on.   U

The car is a money pit indeed. I took it in this morning. Pretty soon I get a call, with the estimate. The bearing bad isn't the one on the right replaced a few months ago as I had hoped because the replacement would be free.  It's the one on the left.  I had trouble understanding that because the noise I hear is on cu

8 more fixed.  Good thing for the area., Anyhow, two of the kittens fixed today were from Sweet Home, actually Foster, but that's just a couple miles past Sweet Home. Those were the two tame Siamese trailer park girls.   The people who had them did not want them back.  The first two from that litter were fixed last we

I trapped Scooty, a little orange mackerel tabby girl, who was fixed the 13th She's already in a home.  But the image of her crouched along the curb, in that parking lot, with her sister, a muted torti, haunted me.  I had to find her sister. This is when I first saw Scooty and her sister crouched along a curb. So I'v

Well, our air is supposed to get better by tomorrow, as colder air moves in. Portland had like the 6th worse city air in the world for awhile there.  Not something anybody in Oregon wants to hear.  It's from the wildfire smoke, mostly blown down from British Columbia.   It's been awful here in the valley too.  Orange

The cat round up for today's reservations was not so wild as last week's.  I made certain to call it an evening early, in fact. I had no trouble finding seven cats in need of spay, neuter.  However two of the cats who went turned out to be already fixed.  There was no way to know before, since both were females and did

Smog Sun The Yellow Jackets like my taste.  Especially those up around that clear cut in the hills, where I loaned the people a trap, rigged so it couldn't spring, to pre feed, for trapping this weekend, but they changed their minds pretty much the next day, said they'd wait til fall. I dress in winter type clothes, ev

If you are dealing with yellow jackets, this guy in this video, first digs out a nest.  Then he tests three traps, two of which you can buy.  The third is most effective short term and simple to make yourself.

I over did it yesterday.  Big time. So last night I was exhausted and in one of those moods where you don't want anyone to say a word.  I just wanted my bed.  It's not like I see many people anyway, which is probably good, when I get that tired.  I'm more likely to fire off. Ganji has ringworm.  He's the last cat I c

We had relief  from our strange extreme heat, although it was brief, yesterday, in the form of slight precipitation and clouds yesterday. I don't know if the mist was even measurable but sure felt nice! Today its back to the mid 80's, then more 90's. The young woman who asked for help with the orange mom and her five ki
