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.

The two girls from the county park were fixed Thursday.  Both were lactating. I had drop trapped India's six kittens.  But Bootsy's kittens?  The camp host figured they had died or were eaten by an animal or killed by the many dogs who free roam with their owners there. But, I got a call Thursday evening, that the cam

What a week! On Monday, Julie and I dropped off/picked up/got fixed 7 cats, 3 from Albany, four from the county park. On Tuesday, I took 14 other Linn County cats up to be fixed at the FCCO, dropping seven of them off on the way back with Meow Village. On Wednesday, I returned the 7 now fixed cats I still had and then dr

Long day, but I'm used to those. The day before, Monday, In the morning, I went and drop trapped 4 teens to be fixed at one Sweet Home trailer park.  One drop of the drop trap got them all! One of the four teens, a boy.  Three of them were boys.  Two tabby on whites and a black tux. Second tabby on white boy teen

Friday the day after returning from Waldo Lake I had lots to do. Instead, I got sent to pick up a cat in Albany, whose owner had ended up in a nursing home. I knew the house where he hung out. I got cats fixed at the front house and the back mother in law cottage in 2010. Both those tenants long since moved out. One

Where is Waldo? I found Waldo. Waldo is the gem of the Cascades, a natural lake where no motor boating is allowed.  Peace and quiet! Off I went.  I took an entire 40 minutes to pack.  This was a mistake, turns out. I might should have checked my sleeping bag.  Zipper's broken, can't zip up.   Or the weather re

Last Thursday night, late, when returning cats to a trailer park, fixed that day at the FCCO, as I left, I saw a horrific sight.  Cats, so starved, they were frantically trying to tear into garbage bags on a porch.  The little black long hair turned to meet my eyes.  I immediately poured out several pounds of food, piled

Long day yesterday.  I took 19 cats up to Portland, 17 of them to be fixed at the FCCO. 2 others, the Waterloo park boys Hoot and Holler, went to Animal Rescue and Care Fund.  Once again, thank you to ARCF! The others who were fixed included the two Waterloo park girl kittens I caught in that 12 hour stint at the park a

I am a stubborn person.  I am a person who does not like to give up. That's probably why I spent 12 hours today sitting in my car, mostly, at the county park.  I was holding out to catch the last brier patch kitten.  I didn't want to sit there again. It poured today, downpours that drenched me to the skin as I ran for

Ace and Deuce have experienced big changes in the last few days. They are now well traveled, officially city boys now, neutered, probably could even be described as "hipsters".  Not sure, not being hip myself.   But I would call them cool cats. I drove the boys up this morning.  There was quite a chorus going

The black and whites were fixed yesterday. Two boys unwanted in Albany.  They are a delight.  If they got fixed, they could immediately go up for adoption with a Portland area rescue, Felines First, who also took in Bluey and Toby, those little darlings from the Albany colony, and they got a home within a week, together

I took King, the massive stray boy I got fixed at an apartment complex, to the north coast clinic for dental care. He was fixed last June, along with many others there, and was experiencing mouth troubles.  He had two lower canines pulled.   I'll take him back tomorrow.  Thanks so much to all who donated to help with hi

One morning, coffee cup in hand, a few days ago, I went out to sit in my white plastic mold stained lawn chair, and was startled to hear hissing sounds. A cat fight?  In dead Jack's yard? I charge around the corner, in my night clothes still and almost run into a handsome young man with an orange vest, carrying a device

The last two kittens from the Albany colony, that I had here, Niners and Whisper, went to a KATA volunteer today.   I will promote them and promote them, til they get a home that suits their natures.  They are still shy and with me being so busy lately, they got little handling.  They had no future here.   I miss them a

I somehow made it to Portland with 20 Linn County cats. Even though....I was a wee bit tired out.  I'd had to keep 14 of them, most teens and kittens, in my bathroom, due to the heat. They all had to be in individual traps so I had to borrow some traps.  Except the four going to a Portland rescue.  They included the th

Trying to solve huge cat situations alone is not an easy undertaking.  Especially when one is quite lousy at fundraising. I often take on such situations.  Why?  Because it needs done.  Donations generally go to fuzzy face campaigns, as I call them.  An injured cat, an abused cat, a cute kitten....not to some knarled

I need a home. For me!  Pool, spa, sun, ocean breeze, warm ocean, did I mention that, not the cold Oregon Pacific.......an island would do.  Or two. Ok, I really need a home for two kittens, the last two colony kittens, Niners and Whisper. I'm thinking I should change Niners name to Two Spot or to Little Slinko. Ok,

I took up 13 cats to the FCCO yesterday from the Waterloo colony.   There are at least 14 more.  I identified at least 5 more adults who need fixed and 9 more kittens.  Before the man next door said he and his wife feed two females and there are two litters over there.  I peeked over his fence and happily one of the two

My under the house babies are leaving me today.  Two of them anyhow.  Bluey and Toby are heading north to Felines First, who will try to do what I've not been able to do:  find them a home. I will miss them but they deserve a home and I can't find them one. I will still have Niners and Whisper here, and will work to fu

Yesterday was a very long day, from awakening after restless sleep and too little of it, at 3:30 a.m..  I'd already wrangled my two companions, Honey and Calamity, into live traps.  They were ready in the car, when I hit the road at 4:30 a.m. grasping a cup of coffee. Calamity went.  She's 7 years old now and had not ha

I've got four of the most lovely kittens, from that colony, not long from living under a house, starving.   But so far, I have not found a single home. Bluey! Toby! Whisper! Niners!  I even went to Salem yesterday, for a brief adoption attempt fling, at a garage sale being held in a large trailer park.

I got sick.   Like food poisoning sick.  Or Noro Virus sick. That was Tuesday.  I had to stay close to home that day, mostly in bed. Yesterday I was slightly better and could not help myself.  I was back at the colony, trapping for that last adult female.  I got her! Named Her Savannah But then I caught this litt

I sat over at the colony for five long hours yesterday morning, arriving at 7:00 a.m.   I had hoped to catch the unfixed adult female but I never even saw her.  Instead, out of nowhere, trailing Jax, the recently fixed male, pops a small kitten I didn't even know was still there. She ran under the drop trap with recently

I have Bluey and Toby here, two kittens from the Albany colony.   They have experienced huge life changes in just a week.  I trapped Toby last Saturday and Bluey not til Tuesday. Both are now fixed and have tamed rapidly.  I even took them to an adoption event today in Lebanon at Affordable Dog Grooming.  They were no

Wow, I think to myself.  16 cats and kittens from one colony already helped in under a week.  Not bad. Tuesday the 8th adult, Skittles, another female, trapped Saturday at the colony, was fixed, via Spay Inc.  I picked her up after her spay, since it happened in Albany, then drove her the next day out to Spay Inc., and

Cat in Trap Recovery Shelves I got at the Restore! I got all nine cats fixed today.  The colony seven I took to be fixed today included four females and three males.  Three of the females will go to Spay Inc. as she talked the people out of them, basically to save the cats.  They're all so horribly skinny and parasite r

I was contacted by Spay Inc. who needed help with an Albany colony.  She had already taken one kitten from a female down from this colony and gotten the female fixed.  She had been unable to find the female's 2nd kitten.  That cat turned out to be owned.  Sort of. This colony is just a few houses from where she got the

I'm off kilter from going to bed early for several days to prepare for the trip to the coast yesterday, so this time I'd be rested and not have to spend the day dozing in a parking lot.   Now I am having trouble getting back on track though, on the old sleep schedule. Here are more photos from Tuesday's journey to the coa

Yesterday, I had two more appointments on the north coast at the vet clinic.   I took Alexi and Angel up this time.  Alexi had been working her jaw like something hurt and I knew Angel needed work done, as I checked her teeth last time I clipped her.  I could see a lot of tartar. I had plenty of sleep and was up by 3:15

The kittens attachment to Snowball has progressed to nursing.  Which is such a cozy comfy I-am-loved, world-is-terrific thing. Their relationship is beautiful to behold.  Snowball needs them and they so badly need her. Snowball had no one where she roamed, to watch out for her, to come home to, to care. Houses she'd li

I was contacted by the FCCO to assist a woman feeding a mom and kittens in Albany.   I took out first a regular trap, tied open, to feed in, but was told only a couple kittens would go in at a time and the mom cat would just growl at the trap. So I swapped it out for the drop trap, fastening it up so it couldn't drop, to
