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.

I went to the other dental office today, that is handling the overflow of the office where my dentist works.  My dentist is quitting her job in about a week at that office.  Maybe I mentioned that.  They don't know when, they told me, they'll be able to hire another. This other office is incredibly busy.  I waited an h

When I was young and still seeking adventure, I went to Alaska to work.  My memory is dull on exactly how many times I made the trip.  I worked various places---at a fish processing plant, at a restaurant, beer joint called the Mini-mall, whose owner advertised for workers in the OSU student newspaper, which is how I foun

My friend, the director of Poppa Inc, whose spay neuter mission is now closed, still runs a sanctuary for the unwanted cats she calls Odd Cat Out, under Poppa's old banner. OCO is low on funds and badly needs people who will step forward to sponsor cats.  OCO is paired with at least two adoption groups now, who are helpin

I rented Gravity, on Amazon, as a birthday present. I was horrified, almost immediately, by how bad a movie this was that I'd just shelled out $3.99 to watch. Number one, the movie begins with Sandra Bullock working away on the Hubble while George Clooney is acting like a 12 year old, bouncing around the exterior of the s

My birthday.  Today. I won't say how old I am, only that I'm pretty close to six decades on this earth. One foot in the grave.  Teetering. But I've been teetering a long time. I've had a long hard lonely life. Today will be no different. It's hard to stay sane when alone all the time, hard to remain focused forward o

Well, there's nothing like a good can of bright paint to cheer me up.  And I've needed some happy face cheer in my life lately. Number one: I'm bored, losing my self-appointed mission in life as I did last June, when Poppa closed its spay neuter mission.  I need to get on top of figuring out how to raise funds, to keep t

Along with the uptrend in prices of pretty much everything on earth, including that for electricity, city water service, almonds, to name one food item, and gas for my aging car, I hear a report that says the price of coffee is about to sky rocket. I don't care if the price of cows' milk rises and I guess it is.  Doesn't

Cougie was right back to drooling with her tongue out.  It's been only two weeks since her teeth were cleaned and the worst one pulled.  At that time, the vet said she would likely need them all pulled.  I just didn't know it would be so soon. Got my upload usb cable working again, by cleaning the severely corroded inn

From John Steinbeck in his book, East of Eden:   "Sometimes a kind of glory lights up the mind of a man.  It happens to nearly everyone.  You can feel it growing or preparing like a fuse burning toward dynamite.  It is a feeling in the stomach, a delight of the nerves, of the forearms.  The skin tastes the air, a

Cloudy is dead.  It happened suddenly, this morning. Cloudy was the youngest male from the colony. This morning, I clean litter boxes in the second bedroom, he's peaking out at me, from under the bed.  He's shy but playful.   He lets, or did let, me pet him. An hour later, I was drinking coffee, morning chores done,

Celebration time.  For now Electra's hardy nature has overcome the greater difficulties associated with ancient life to conquer pneumonia. Last night, she hopped down out of her sick bay cozy, and wandered the house, took a whack at the ever annoying Peeman Sam, reclaimed her coveted pillow on the window shelf, watched o

It's been pouring rain.  With wind. We can all sigh with relief.  All is well in Oregon.  Now we can feel ok, not weirded out over the lack of rain. At first when the rain returned, we held off, maybe feeling guilty, worried it might not last or be enough, but now, that the rain has REALLY returned, we feel comfortable

I was going to go to bed early last night, was so looking forward to it. Miss Daisy had other plans. It was one of those nights, where she wanted into everything.  She wanted into the bathroom, where she had decided a carrier in there was her special hideaway.  She loves to find unique places to sleep.  But, she wasn't

Oregon is posturing to legalize pot here, like they've done in Washington and Colorado. I don't smoke pot.  Reality is OK with me. I've known plenty of potheads--people so addicted all they think about is smoking more and getting more.   It is addictive and it does make a person lose motivation. But that's not my busi

Electra, before she went to the vet, was on death's door.  She may still be, but she doesn't feel like it now, not after that steroid shot.  After we got home, I gave her fluids, and after a couple more hours in the bathroom, on the heating pad, on which she is laying in the above photo, taken before she went to the vet,

Electra's been with me a long time.  15 years to be almost exact.  She's been with me through three different rentals, where I've lived, with her, and other cats.  She was my second cat.  I've told the story several times on this blog of how she came to be with me.  I'll tell it briefly once more. She'd been brought t

Now the east coast and south are getting hit with a "historic storm" of ice and snow.  This winter's weather seems to say, "something is going on" and "the climate is changing".  I think the climate is changing.  I don't know much about the science of climate change, however, so I'll just sa

Strangest thing, last night, the snow had melted enough to reveal a glow beneath---the solar yard lights had been completely buried.  But when the snow began to melt away, they shined through even still under several inches of snow.  It was awesome.  I cleared the snow away by hand to free them. Snow by last night

Today, ten days after Convenia antibiotic injections, Cougie and Rogue are up in the Portland area receiving dental care.  Good luck, my babies. Cougie, who formerly roamed the grounds of an Albany business and lived almost exclusively on pigeons since the business people would not feed them. Rogue, Cougies' cousin

Watch your head.  Get out your bike helmet.  The thaw is here.  And ice is falling.  From trees, fences, and sliding off roofs. Crack!  Tinkle!  Boom! Wishful Thinking! Backyard on Sunday. Budding Cherry on Ice Budding Maple on ice. Compost under snow Heavy load on my roof! Here comes a sheet o

Rain is now falling instead of freezing rain.  But the wind has come up some and the roads are a mess. I walked to the store, but there were few souls out.  People driving, even chained and in four wheel drives, were sliding severely when they tried to stop. I watched a small light newer Honda, chained up all around, tr

This morning I wake up to my heat pump groaning sourly.  I peek out the bathroom window to see why, although it's quite a responsibility to be under right now, sucking air through snow, to keep my place toasty or cool, according to its boss, the thermostat.  24/7 job!  I try to make life easier on the heat pump.  A tech

I wrote this post earlier in the day with the first photo of the rhododendron, and this photo above, I just took because it's been snowing all afternoon, and the rhode is now almost buried. Buried in snow here, in Albany.   More coming down. We don't get snow here.  Well, we do now. The photo below I took this morni

The closest thoroughfare to me.  Unplowed, unsanded with maybe 9 or ten inches of snow.  We don't plow here.  Or sand.  Or anything.  Because we don't usually get any snow at all. Backyard buried. Cat yard cat house buried. Dri Home made Gators. I finally got stir crazy enough watching the snow drift

    This winter is nuts.  Two snow events in the valley?  We never get snow here.  Never say never. And just like during the last event, my car broke down. Last time, my car wouldn't start.  I finally got a ride to a store and bought the car a shiny new battery.  Then my car would start. This time,  the car h

Odd Cat Out is paying for Cougie and Rogue to be treated at their vet up north. They'll first get antibiotic injections, then, in about two weeks, dentals. And, very soon, I will officially be an Odd Cat Out affiliate, meaning I can fund raise for the cats care here as Odd Cat Out South. The relief, to have a solution, i

My brother had a stroke Saturday.  His wife found him quickly and he went to a very good hospital. They strung something up through a blood vessel and quickly broke up that clot.  However, he had another small stroke Sunday.  So they risked him bleeding and put him on high doses of heparin.  By yesterday he was talking

I hadn't had a phone call in almost a week.  In fact I didn't know if my phone was working anymore.  Then today, about noon, I get a call, from my younger brother. He joked around about something being dumped in front of his business, a toilet.  Then he tells me my older brother, just a year and a half older, had a stro

Slinko, since coming out as tame, has been a pain, thinking everything is about him and his new found love of me!  He haunts me like an obsessed ghost, tripping me by running in front of my feet, and driving off other cats in fits of "I'm the greatest and the most loved of all", tipping the balance.  Boy.
