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.

We have had an exceptionally wet and dreary winter thus far.  Rain seems never ending. Sometimes I want to yell at the sky to stop with the rain. It's oppressing.  The long gray.  Winter in Oregon. Besides the damp wet hanging in the air, even when its not raining, we contend with short days and a lot of darkness.  I

I am generally good at keeping things up for safety especially. And yet I let go the rear brake change needed on my car until the weekend. I knew it was needed because they screeched when I back out and down the driveway.  But Friday I heard terrible scraping noises too, when I braked.  That was the end of that and I ma

I'm something of a zombie after all the work of the weekend and first days of this week. Yesterday I was forced to succomb to my affliction and blankly stare at the wall the part of the day I wasn't sleeping, that is. The only way for me to recover after over working is to sleep a lot and drink a lot of water.  My timele

Well, for my records although little does it matter, here are the 13 fixed Sunday from the Ridgeway colony in Sweet home.  There were five girls in all.  Three calicos, a young brown tabby and an orange and white bobtail. The rest were all boys and all various shades of orange except for one big bad black

Well, I overdid things with catching 25 with Karen maybe. Oh well, today they go home.  Karen took the 25 to Portland Saturday night and then to the FCCO clinic yesterday to be fixed.  Then she and her boyfriend drove them down here last night. During the day yesterday, I rounded up 7 more to be fixed today up in Salem.

25 cats caught at two locations in Sweet Home. 12 at the one I started two days ago.  11 of those were caught by yesterday and one more today. 13 at the other location, which isn't far from the first one. Karen came down from Portland this morning and just left for home with all 25 cats in her car.  The cats will all b

Well, it will be a big cat catching weekend. I think. Karen from Portland had 25 reservations and asked me to find colonies to fill those reservations.  She intended to come down Saturday to help trap for a  Sunday FCCO clinic in Portland.  Then I have the usual 7 reservations Monday in Salem.  I found two colonies

Fluffy, who was dumped in the county park, is now in Portland.   He's in foster care to adopt, I think.  I took him up today along with two Sweet Home kittens, who will board the Kitten Caboose on their journey to new lives. So long my pretty park boy.  Fortunately, he didn't have to remain there long after being spott

The manx boy cat I found at death's door on Wednesday is really really in bad shape. I am being selfish prolonging his inevitable end.  I hope to send him on, so to speak, with Heartland's help today.  Being sick myself, and not really fit to be in public, has been an issue.  But today I'm much better, I think.  I orde

My cold is epic.  At least I think so. I haven't had a cold in years, so any event causing drainage that empties kleenex boxes at this rate I will call epic! Whine, whine. Australia burns.  The images are too painful to behold.   To my Australian blogger friends Andrew and EC, I don't know what to say but I hope thin

Isn't the definition of insanity if you do something again, that had a bad outcome, but expect the outcome to be different? If so, then I'm certifiable. There's this lady.   A sociopath for sure.  Enjoys manipulation, game playing, causing trouble.  Has no regard for anyone but herself. I've helped her twice before wi

Fluffy from the park acted feral much of today, although when I'd go into the bathroom, to use it, I would pet him nonetheless. This evening Fluffy came out as tame.  Super tame.  Ecstatic over his change in circumstance too.  It was beautiful to see.  He's so happy to be inside and safe. He can't stop purring either.

It's New Year's Eve.  Yay!  Whatever. I took a trip to the coast clinic today with three cats.  Soloman needed antibiotics.  He has a cold.  I also had two dental appointments.  Last evening, I caught Fluffy at the park.  Didn't take long.  Unfortunately while trapping for him, I spotted yet another new cat, a bl

Rocky needed neutered, then to go home. Without any local options for that to happen, I was able to get an appointment, given up by a Portland cat rescue group, for yesterday.  The appointment was at the FCCO clinic up in Portland. I sailed up there in just over an hour, without encountering any congestion Friday morning

I drove down to my brother's place on Christmas Eve. It's a bit of a drive, farther than going to the coast clinic in fact.  The I5 part of the trip seemed to go on forever and ever.  I just wanted to pull off somewhere and sleep. But I did get there in time for Christmas Eve dinner--fondue.  We always used to have fon

I've been trying to end the mission in the county park, to keep all the dumped cats fixed and rehome as many as possible. I was going to trap the latest dump off this evening, thought it would be easy, with it pouring rain.  All the town cats would be home, sleeping in front of fires, climbing Christmas trees, not down th

Q, who is having a relaxing time of it in my bathroom, outside of coughing out a huge hairball, is a very very lucky kitty. We knew the weather was going to hell end of the week, so we tried harder to get him early to mid week and did.  It was not just me involved.  Anyhow, KATA and the others helping pulled out equipmen

Got him.  My little night river cat visitor from out in the wilds.  The one who crept up behind my car on that long cold night out there at milepost unknown trying to catch him.  I'd even left my car door open that night, for a time, hoping he'd crawl in, make it easy on him and me, and keep me warm and company. Nope, no

A cat was dumped in the cruelest of places.  The cat, maybe two cats, were seen crossing the road, in the dark, almost to Yellow Bottom campground, out on Quartzville road, along the river. This is a wild and scenic area, remote and lonely in the winter, the road in often a go at your own risk game of dodge the falling ro

I have finally paid off the old car I got off craigslist.   Oh boy, took a long time and a lot of scrimping out of a budget that is not meant to stretch to much other than food and utilities. But I did it and I'm proud to get it paid off. It's not perfect that car.  A friend was riding with me the other day and suddenl

There are Christmas lights everywhere this year, seems like on every street.  I like to see them, since color brightens up my brain. Our strange winter continues.  We've had very little rain. An inversion has held in stinky air pollution from somewhere off and on for weeks.  Sometimes the air outside smells like real

I took Squeaky, the darling little buff tabby boy from Egg Place, up to Wilsonville Wednesday evening.  I handed him off to Karen, who kept him for the night then took him with two other Egg Place kittens who had been fostered by another person in Portland, to the FCCO.  All three boarded the Kitten Caboose.  Off to Oreg

Ten more local cats went to be fixed yesterday. I sat out at a Lebanon trailer park much of Saturday.  I'd loaned her the drop trap to feed under and she had done that.   I got a lot of cats fixed there last June, all of the adults in fact, and we got out a load of kittens, 14 I think in all, in the end.  Many of the f

Today is Thanksgiving when most people sit around the table and eat a turkey corpse and otherwise stuff themselves.  Just being silly. I had to get the ten cats in my garage back home this morning, Thanksgiving or not.  I'd gone up to Portland last night to pick them up from the lady I left them with the night before.

I scored some spay neuter reservations Monday at Heartland. At Heartland, the cats fixed don't have to necessarily get right ear tips, so I try to get the tame cats on my list in when I get these appointments with owners who don't want ear tips but otherwise would not fix their cats for one reason or another, the most comm

The three kittens I trapped last week at the Egg Place, one on Tuesday, two more on Thursday, moved on with their lives Saturday. I took them up north to a foster with Animal Rescue and Care Fund, for now at least.  The tamest little boy is scheduled to board the Kitten Caboose Wednesday.  The other two also had URI's bu

After returning cats yesterday and catching the two kittens, I went to the park, to take some photos and just sit around. The weather has been unusually dry, although that is about to change I hear.  There were almost no people in the park although the camp host was loudly blasting a leaf blower.  Leaves still abound.

Another ten cats were fixed Wednesday at the FCCO. They included four kittens, three from the Egg Place colony, including the freshly trapped muted torti kitten, whom I don't have a photo of, and the gray tabby girl kitten from River Road, along with the classic torti and gray tabby kittens I'd had since Saturday evening.

Well, here are photos of the ten cats fixed Monday. Four were from Sweet Home, the River Road colony, and six were from Lebanon, a mom and her five kittens.   In that group of six, there was only one boy, so that is a catastrophe averted there. Lily, the black mom Arrow, the one boy kitten Sprinks, a black tux

I'll post photos for records mainly of the 19 cats fixed Sunday, up in Portland. I went and picked them up from Karen, who drove them to Portland, last night in Wilsonville.  I was kind of worn out by then, but I made it ok. I'd driven to Sweet Home by then and picked up five more the guy at the colony had trapped that m
