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.

I've experienced, recently, a series of unfortunate events. Some of those events are now partially resolved. My knee is much better after the doctor injected it with steroids. However, the title on the new used car I bought is not clear. Why it is not a clear title is unclear. Does the fog of Oregon shroud common sense

There's good news out there.  I see it sometimes even out in the world. And there is good news for me.   I have the car, although I haven't driven it outside of driving it home after purchase.   That's because I haven't switched over the insurance yet or rigged it for cat hauling. My knee, good news there too.  I suff

The last few days have been nuts. I struggled to find a replacement for the Catmobile, since the old one has multiple problems. I contacted private sellers realizing I'd get a better deal since dealers have a markup to make profit.   I found one in Bend, but it was on 04 Scion, but...low miles.  However, it was overpric

The Catmobile is dying, I fear.  Terminal maybe. Sometimes it just won't start.   It uses over a quart of oil a month but there are no leaks. Today I was able to drive Sunny and Buddy, of Waterloo county park, to meet up with a Brooks woman, who will drive the boys the rest of the way to their new home. Good luck boys!

No sooner did I get the six Mountain Shadows cats trapped last weekend into various places, than the resident up there brought three more she had trapped. One of these three is a very elderly black tux, cloudy eyes, thin, but from age.   Maybe Lucy's sister, or brother.  I haven't even checked yet.  She's in the bathroo

I overslept this morning.  I am usually up by 6:30 a.m. and sleeping in does not make for a good day usually. I woke up at 9:00 a.m.  I couldn't believe it.  Half the day gone, seemed like. I then spent a long time trying online and by phone to find help for the remaining Mountain Shadows cats.  I felt alone with the

The aftermath of the weekend cat catches is this. Rocky, the cat with the injured tail, from the other Sweet Home trailer park, had to return.  He was a wee bit agressive, not feral, agressive.  I'd put him in the bathroom, to recover, after Heartland said "No, we can't keep him, or even handle him." I was st

8 cats have been helped this weekend alone. There was Taco, from Mountain Shadows, tame and sweet, a victim of the new rules there.  But is he really?  Heartland took him in and he could end up with a great home, loved and pampered! Taco gets a chance at a better life at Heartland Humane in Corvallis. He is not the o

The resident of Mountain Shadows was crying when she met me in Lebanon with two more cats from the trailer park. She has loved the cats. She was crying over other tenants there too, who don't take care of their own cats.  Like the one with about five dogs and claims nine cats, all fixed now, but by others, myself and KA

Today the mists shrouded much of the valley steadily, light as cat paw, it fell. It felt good hitting my face, cooling, refreshing. We've not had hot weather since the few days of.....well, I can't really recall when those few days were.  Tomorrow may begin cloudy but afterwards I think the sun is to come out for a few

The kittens are gone and I miss them. Nothing like stumbling funny dramatic kittens to make me bubble in laughter!  Nothing like helping out a mom, on her own too long, too. I'm so happy right now. I took the kittens and their mom and met their new foster mom just off the freeway near Portland.  They're in Washington s

Also, I retrapped Mistachio at the county park.  One more out of there!  Here's a photo of her I took when she was loved and well cared for by a park host before she was fired.

First I'd like to make it clear I enjoy taking photos of trash. Please don't analize the why's.  I don't even know. I go to the recycle center to put my plastic bags in the bin.   The recycle center features this sign. This particular notice is posted in several places.  The notices are completely ignored.  As fo

The four kittens I caught yesterday at the grange are, by sex, two boys and two girls. By color, they are two brown tabbies and two blacks, but both blacks have white chest spots and at least one white foot.   Of the two blacks, one is a boy and one is a girl.  Same with the tabbies. They have diarrhea, not dripping but

There are two deaths to report in cat land.  Both were tragic and needless. Mayday died.  She was the little feral girl whom I trapped to be fixed over 8 years ago.  She had developed a lump on her cheek.  I retrapped her for her owners, took her clear to the Astoria clinic, where 8 teeth were pulled and the vet took a

Two men, as yet unidentified, lost their lives yesterday in Portland. A third was injured but is expected to survive. It takes nothing from the loss of the two deaths, for their families, or for them, lives ended, but how they went is inspirational and the real story of yesterday. Two young girls were on the commuter tra

I had five reservations today but only three cats, which always makes me disappointed.   the three come from three different locations. This girl is from Albany now, but was found on Lochner Road, outside town, starving, possibly, probably dumped.   She is looking for a home, but is being fostered by some kind folks unti

Balls, the orange tabby tux, who seemed ultra feral when handed over, in a live trap, by the Mountain Shadows trailer park resident who trapped him, turned out to be very sweet. I realized he was just scared.   And VERY VERY hungry.  He ate pretty much everything I put in the trap, and would politely ask for more.  He b

Despite all the drama of life, one must move onward or just stagnant and rot. Caught two more at the Albany colony.   Will I ever finish there?  Hmmmm. They get fixed Monday. The little long hair, hiding behind the short hair, is very petite and small and probably Ruby's sister.  Ruby is the kitty who had kitte

My computer has been acting up.   One day, no usb ports would work at all.  I could not even log into Windows.   Then suddenly one only would work.  I bought a new usb hub, thinking that was the problem, but nope.  Sometimes just suddenly they fail. Then one or two will work again. I consulted two different computer t

I took two more cats in to be fixed on Monday. Whitey and Blackie! Yeah, I gave them those names. Why?   So, I guess you can guess who is who. I'd seen a new arrival at the farm colony.  I watched him sneak into the shed they use for breaks and decided to set a trap in the shed and caught him within 30 minutes

I was on my bed, sprawled flat, reading, surrounded by my family--my cats.  Tugs, a compact loving little torti, always full of mischief, was beside me.   Looking into her eyes, seeing her face a little shrunken from when I first took her away from a horrifying situation in Lebanon I called the Shovel killer Christian Nei

The two kittens families, one in my bathroom, one in the garage, are doing well. Both are moving to Portland tomorrow.  Big city lights call! Zena and her three, whom I dug out from under the corner of the shed, taking a toll on my body that I am feeling particularly today, are doing well.  She purrs in happiness when t

All three kittens the black tux from the trailer place had, over an entire 24 hours, with kittens sticking half out, for hours, died, as might be expected in labor that rough.  They were not ready to come out.   Likely stress played a role in premature birth. The kitten I trapped in the night there also died.  She was s

More and more kittens.  They are everywhere! I trapped two cats for a developmentally disabled woman I helped before, after stopping by there the other night.  One was a pregnant girl. The boy was already neutered and had bad eyes.  He could go to whs but because they do not officially take in cats from our county, but

Oh brother.  Last night didn't go as planned. I thought it would be easy as pie to catch at least four of the remaining cats over at the Albany colony.   It's a quiet little cul de sac, with very little activity and zero traffic that I've seen before.   I had permission to park in the neighbors driveway, with him gone,

Mayday went home today.   She's still swollen up but not as bad.  She ate a little this morning, before she went home.  She has a great set up at her long time caretaker's place.  She is in the same large cage, with the back of it, where the shelf is, up against a window.  The cage is on a table in an unused bedroom.

I call her Mayday--the cat I got fixed 8 years ago, whom I retrapped, because one side of her face was swollen, on May 1. She and I headed over to the coast clinic early yesterday morning. I left about 5:00.  I was going to leave about 5:30 but thought 5:00 a.m. would make sure I did not get so snarled in Portland traffi
