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.

Titan, one of the four wild things I trapped at the Albany colony, was fixed Tuesday along with Flint, a black long hair teen male, and Juble, another short hair black kitty from same colony. I returned Flint and Juble yesterday.  I figured Flint was a couple months too old to tame.   But Titan went back to the bathroom,

Chinook is doing just fine.  I called the clinic today.  In fact, he has a new name--Oliver, and will soon have a new home.  The vet had a friend with a kitten who needed a kitten.   Good luck Oliver (a.k.a. Chinook) and thanks so much to my beloved affordable vet clinic and their kind vets and staff. Also, I was gi

I took another trip to the north coast affordable clinic on Thursday. The night before, I attempted, starting early, to get Tweetie contained.  She is the one I felt really needed to go, as she had not seen a vet since she was a kitten and got spayed, after I caught her and over a dozen others fed over in Columbus Greens

I took 9 cats in Monday to be fixed, after being gifted those 9 reservations suddenly.  Well, how could I resist when I saw four more reservations up for grabs, for yesterday?   Don't ask someone like me, even if tired, to resist such an offer. Besides, I tried to make reservations for more cats to be fixed, there in S

I was gifted 9 spay/neuter reservations that someone else wasn't going to use, up at WHS today.  I didn't want to waste them! So I went back up Saturday night to the colony near Sweet Home.   I'd trapped four of the six cats in the colony about ten days back, but failed to catch the mom of the four teens, or one of the t

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! It's raining, it's pouring here in Oregon. The cats are quite happy to lounge around atop me.   I intend a quiet day. I was thinking back on all the cats I trapped or helped just this November and felt good, happy, satisfied. I made the video at the top to remember them all. All those litt

Today wasn't easy. Trips to the coast clinic with cats never are but today was a little beyond. You see, the cats did not cooperate in the catching, the ones I wanted that is, so once I finally had Button and Forest (I really wanted to take Button and her sis, Tweetie), I was running late to get going.  I have to leave b

I am worn out and worn thin.  Going to bed very very soon! I waited til Wednesday to trap two Sweet Home situations.  Just tired out I guess.   I thought the one at the lone house across the tracks along the highway would be easy.   It wasn't.  Seems the cats really do only show up to eat at 5:30 a.m.  I got there at

I was scheduled to take some cats to be fixed yesterday at whs in Salem. Unfortunately, now the trailer park where the woman feeds four is under a new owner who has declared no feeding of outside cats.  Which is horrible.  Many of those cats have been fed for years, and now what, are they supposed to starve to death?  I

Long long day yesterday.  Still worn out.   15 more Linn County cats went up to Portland to be fixed at the FCCO.   14 of those were from Waterloo.  Waterloo should start feeling a difference soon, I should think.  It is a tiny place.  Now up to over 100 fixed there in the last couple of months. The 15th was a Lebano

Yesterday I took Smolder and Gidget to the affordable clinic. I've been running a fundraiser to help get more cats in for dental care.  It has not been a very successful fundraiser thus far.  It's on the sidebar to the right. I knew Smolder had bad teeth.  He had begun the jaw jitter that generally indicates bad tartar

I got flippers going at it day and night beside and behind me.  They've torn the guts from those two houses.  Amazing what one can do without, apparently, any permits.  Also something I didn't know.  I thought the opposite.  The ones beside me are sometimes so loud their equipment drowns the TV.   I have taken to rec

I was gifted some reservations tomorrow that someone else isn't using.  I was relieved, to say the least, to have somewhere to get the four Waterloo County park teens fixed.  They are wild things!  It's not that easy to find spay neuter around here.  Otherwise, I would have needed to wait another week and drive them to

Totals in Waterloo so far (I think): Waterloo county park: 46 helped in the county park in all. 20 removed. 26 fixed, returned (some to homeless campers)  Waterloo residential: 43 helped. 17 taken out, 26 fixed and returned.   I keep forgetting some....but I think I have it correct now. Here's a summary of county pa

I'm living in a fish bowl. Flippers on one side of me, loud and constant noise there, intrusive, has been going on a couple of weeks and behind me now, someone has either bought the house or is also flipping it, I don't know.  But noise there and the worst of it, a back porch light so bright and intense, if I'm out in my

I took 4 more Waterloo park kittens over to be fixed at Heartland today.  The cost to fix the four will be $160.   If they can get them all done.  They have a full load of cats and dogs to fix there today. I was especially anxious to get two girl kittens fixed that the camp host gave to homeless campers.  They already

Breity, (I had been calling her Powder) one of the last five kittens Julie got out of Waterloo Residential colony, became very very ill.  She had a runny nose when Julie brought her, still in a trap.  That discharge turned to severe sinus congestion so bad I did not think she would survive. The congestion did not come ou

I made the trip to the affordable clinic again. This time, in honor of Halloween, I took along two black cats--Jade and Blackberry! Blackberry is from Kings Valley and I got a donation to cover Jade, if I transported Blackberry too.  That was a great deal! Blackberry, the kindest sweetest big huge boy you could meet!

I love the towering maple.  The birds love it also. It is beautiful, especially in the fall, as its leaves change color.  But its beauty has a dark side--Leaf Fall.     The falling leaves create a time of intense labor for me. Like cats who shed their winter coats in the spring, the maple drops its leaves in the fall.

I hate that maple tree in the fall.  The branches are tall and spindly and scary in the wind.  But its the leaf production that makes life in the fall rather a hell. The leaves fall by the truckload.   Many fall onto the wire of the cat yard turning day in the yard to night.  I used to whack at the wire from underneath

  This is the latest little kitten from the Waterloo Residential colony.   She is darling but very shy.   Julie trapped her up there on Friday and she came here the same day.  The two Julie got from the county park went back to the camp host.  The camp host decided she wanted them back.  I have them scheduled to be fi

I've been trying to recuperate since the 28 cat adventure in Harrisburg and then the trip to the coast with two cats. My computer has been acting up.   Another of my pocket cameras bit the dust when the "on" button stuck, so its always on and drains batteries within an hour.  I can only use it if I take the bat

After finishing the big situation down in Harrisburg, in just four days, I had to take a break. My knee was killing me, along with my right leg, even my right foot.   I knew I'd need to rest awhile. Felines First Rescue had asked me to transport a cat of theirs, although the cat had already been adopted.  FIV positive

Yesterday, 23 more Linn County cats were fixed.  14 were fixed from the Harrisburg colony and 9 Tangent barn cats also were fixed. I took only 20 to the FCCO however.  3 other Harrisburg colony cats were fixed at Willamette Humane. Darling Calico who now has a name!  Autumn! Another little boy, fixed whs yesterda

There were supposed to be just 16 unfixed cats at the colony I was referred to, in Harrisburg.  Including kittens. I had taken only nine traps when I went down Tuesday to trap.  I had only five reservations yesterday with the FCCO for fixing.  But we are getting a 3 punch storm system moving into our area and I

Older cats have troubles like we do, sometimes. Like constipation. I wondered if that what might be affecting Panda.  I wondered it when I saw the Xray at the ER vet that showed an empty stomach, empty colon, except for gas, but stool in the small intestine. I thought though if she was clogged so bad she wouldn't eat or

My shy and beautiful Panda, now over ten years old, had a sudden event. It was Fantasia who took me to her, worried out of her mind  Panda was in the living room behind one of the plastic garden benches that contain three litter boxes.  When I approached she moved, but not far.  She could only walk, hunched down a few

My poor car.  Not only is it burning oil like crazy now, but, after I got the tires rotated, it's wobbled.  At first it was just at low speeds and I figured it was just the tires settling in, after the rotation, being in a new spot, taking new strains there in the new spot where they were spinning. But now I know its not

Helping cats is an up and down experience and not for everyone. How much do I wish people would practice personal responsibility and fix their cats?   Well I think you probably know the answer to that. I have been stymied at finishing one Waterloo situation by the colony caretaker herself, who always has many excuses why

I returned the cats Wednesday to the Sweet Home colony. But when I arrived the colony caretaker was trying to set a trap with a big Siamese male circling from afar.  He was hungry.  I quickly went to set the trap, plus another, and quickly caught him, before releasing the other 8 who were returning there (two others d
