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.

No cat treats in the house.  Miss D is addicted.  But is she?  Or does she possess an evil side? Also, I took Jazz, the little girl I trapped by the Circle K, who had been living and eating in their dumpster, and the big sick male kitty, the 9th I trapped at the complex, up to CATS in Sherwood this morning, des

My TV reception, cabled in from an ancient roof top antenna, has been terrible lately. How terrible?  I gave up on TV terrible.   The worst reception always was about 8:30 p.m..  If I started to watch something at 8:00, just as it was getting into the drama and winding down, that's when reception would "pixelize&q

Finally, the torti tux teen from the dumpster, is leaving.  Not til Thursday. She's not going to OCO (Odd Cat Out Sanctuary) but rather to CATS (Cat Alliance Team Sanctuary) where cats free roam under no pressure to adjust on anyone's time schedule but their own.  No caging.  And high adoption rates. CATS has taken in

Well, KATA referred me to an Albany apartment complex to fix cats. They took a couple kittens but both died.  Another had been found dead there.  Teen moms.  They don't do well with their first litters. One female allegedly had just had kittens a couple weeks ago.  A tenant's daughter pledged to go under the building a

Smoothie, a.k.a. tumor girl, had it rough, living as a stray in a Sweet Home trailer park, scrambling for food put out for all the caste offs by a kind tenant.  I got most of those kitties fixed in two trips with them to the FCCO.  There are a handful more needing fixed, but I'll get to it. Meanwhile, Smoothie had been f

The first time I visited TP2, to trap cats to be fixed, I met Tumor Girl. I had asked a local cat rescue before going to TP2 if there was anything pertinent I should know about that trailer park, since they live in that town but its about an hour from where I live.   They said they'd been trying to get a cat with a

I stand in solidarity with the wounded, the first responders and the families/friends of the victims of the latest mass shooting in America.  At the night club in Orlando.  50 dead. Over 50 injured.  One asshole with issues and ready access to guns did this. I am horrified over the loss of life, many young and so much l

I wish  I was talking about 13 donuts that I'd eaten!  Bad bad me, to even think that. Instead, I rounded up 13 more cats and today they got fixed. Six came from TP1.  2 girls and 4 boys, from three trailers. Two came from TP2:  Both girls, both big producers of more cats that are not needed there. One came from TP

Today, I was out cleaning my car, and I hear something crashing from the maple, hitting branches, crashing further. I thought a bird had died, a big bird, and was falling perhaps. I run out because the thing is caught now on top of the cat yard wire.  I can't make out what it is and think it looks like a big sprinkler h

We finally got sun here.  The temperature shot up 30 degrees for 4 days.  Saturday and Sunday it was near 100 degrees out.  Monday in the upper 80's, low 90's, never heard how high the temp actually got.  Yesterday, hot but not as hot.   But today?  Back to showers likely and cool, like in the 60's cool and that trend

Happy Cat Club had a rather busy month in May.  Here are the stats. They do not include costs or hours yet. I'll get to that part of it. Anyhow, here are cats helped numbers for May: HCC stats for May. Does not include yet costs or hours. Total Cats Fixed: 36 (24M/12F) Total Cats Relinquished: 11 Willow, Bliz and

I feed birds.  I know, its the same as feeding wildlife, raccoons, possums, what have you.   But I relented, grew weak three winters back, when the temperatures plummeted into single digits and the birds suffered. Then, I realized how much my contained in the yard cats love watching the birds, through the cat yard peep h

Pepper, formerly mat cat from the Sweet Home trailer park, waits to see the vet today. Lucy is not so sure she wants to see the vet.  That look! Today Lucy, Pepper and I headed off to the north coast to the affordable clinic.  Lucy and Pepper both come from the same Sweet Home trailer park.  Both were in deep troubl

Many of the in trouble trailer park kitties are trying to move on to new lives. Cayenne, from Gray Cat Trailer, is still waiting at Heartland Humane.  Below, is a link to her listing at Heartland. Animal Details Here's a photo I took of her when I took her there: Cayenne, at Heartland.  Please share her listing, fro

Someone went out and got a kitten.  Probably on impulse. They already had dogs that do not look so good.  And kids. The aftermath was unwanted lives. The first time I saw their porch, it was crawling in kittens who were starved. They immediately relinquished the five kittens, when I asked, and I took their mother to b

I took up 12 more cats yesterday, 11 to be fixed, one to a rescue, who had been relinquished. The pregnant gray tabby had milk ready for kittens and I feared she would have them on the way. She didn't.  And made it to the rescue, where she will have them in safety. Screamer, the brown tabby boy who kept me up a couple

I've been working one trailer park in Sweet Home, trying hard to get everybody there fixed.  Seems endless however.  But I was contacted by someone in another Sweet Home trailer park with cats everywhere.  To distinguish the two in my mind, I call them TP1 and TP2. Tomorrow, one more boy from TP1 will be neutered.  I'd

I do love using the word "yore".  Why?  Beats me. Having nothing really new to say, I thought I'd add in some old photos today, much like Elephants Child and Highriser and others do, on Sunday calling it Sunday Selections. First off, some photos from the last trip to the north coast, with cats.  That was on A

I was contacted by a Portland group who had been contacted by an Albany woman feeding a shy very pregnant kitty.  They asked if I could go trap her, and I did early this morning without any trouble. But I spent some sleepness minutes last night thinking how stupid it would be to do that.  What if she had kittens before I

The Happy Cat Club---Creating Peace Through Surgical Procedure. I'm cracking myself up, still brain dead exhausted, which makes me giggle.  I've created a whole lot of peace the last month at that trailer park.  Best way to do it, is drop the protest signs and neuter some cats.  Or some people maybe? I'm a peace activi

I returned the 9 cats fixed Thursday yesterday morning. I'd gotten a decent nights sleep, I'll say, but often after clinics I have to "make up" sleep and since I don't do well at all, if sleep deprived, I knew it would hit me yesterday at some point.  Late afternoon, I was done, could not do another thing.

First off, I'll say Pepper scored big time.  Chelsea of Affordable Dog Grooming in Lebanon took over when I could not free Pepper of her mats and got it done!  Now she's fostering her through Felines First and Pepper is loving it!  In heaven! Next up, the gray girl, relinquished at the trailer park, is now in the capabl

This is a rant post.  If you can't handle it, don't read it. I've gotten 17 cats fixed at that trailer park in Sweet Home so far, plus five kittens, one teen, and now two old females were relinquished.  Six of those went to Heartland, one old gal, Pepper, is being fostered by Felines First, and Lucy is still here. So, t

I was back at the trailer park last night.  Some good it did.  Caught only one boy kitty in a trap.  But then went to a trailer where I'd seen an old gal outside on the porch.  I'd talked to the woman who really wanted someone to take her or find a way to get her euthanized, as her mats seemed insurmountable the woman h

Today, the first two cats in the 10,000 Cat Fix project are, well, getting fixed. White Sophie and Black Molly. LOL. The two tame kitty spays, with vaccines, flea treatment, worming and microchips, will cost my nonprofit, the Happy Cat Club, $80.  If you would like to contribute to the 10,000 Cat Fix project, click that

I was going nowhere with the nonprofit.   Ghostlike in the vast sea of people begging for money for causes.  Invisible even here in this small area. Then I came up with the big idea-Fix 10,000 cats.  Not like I haven't done it before, when I had Poppa funds to pay for fixes.  Took about ten years, got a couple hundred

You might want to take note, if you're thinking of adopting a kitten. Meet Willow, Bliz and Snow!!  They're off to Heartland later today and will be up for adoption there once they hit the magic two pound mark and get fixed. They're Sophie's kittens.  Sophie is another white female, down where I tried to catch the long

Here are the April stats for the Happy Cat Club.   The costs don't include food, litter and flea treatment for all the permanent fosters here or the food, gas involved in feeding the farm colony.   But I think we run a pretty tight ship, making the most of every penny in donations to help out cats.   10 of the cats helpe

The other company came.  Guy was courteous and knew his stuff. System was refrigerant undercharged.  He charged it up, by about 3 lbs, cleaned both units as there was some caking on the indoor unit coil, cleaned the filters, too, even though they were not bad, cleaned the outdoor unit, and even caulked the laundry vent t

There has been lots of change on the cul de sac.  The empty house at the end finally went up for sale and within a few months sold.  I don't know who moved in. The renters up near the cross street moved out, and within a few months, another family related to the owner moved in.  I don't know them and haven't met them.
