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 have been slightly obsessed, maybe lacking more productive pass times, in determining if the old cat that tottered up to my open garage door Saturday night is the same cat whose eye needed removed whom I helped two years back.  I have only one photo of Big O, the orange guy from two years ago. That one photo shows, sort

I had Bonita in the bathroom two and one half days after finding her curled up against the wall near the kitchen.   She has been alert the whole time, but would not eat or drink.  I would pull out her favorite foods, heat them up, line up the plates, offer each to her without luck.  She let me pet her and wash her face

I went up and played around in Thomas Creek for awhile.  The weather still has not been very hot here, with predictions for tomorrow of mid 70's and maybe drizzle.  But it was sunny yesterday and I thought I better take advantage of what we get around here and went up.  The swimming hole where I went was ok, but just ok

There are some colonies who would be done long ago if the people involved (feeding the cats) made an effort of any sort to catch them to be fixed. Such is one of the Lebanon colonies.   She messages me one of the unfixed cats is VERY pregnant. Really. And she waits til its about to pop kittens before doing a darn thing

I've been flea treating my cats again, a routine and unpleasant experience here. I usually chase them down with a net, after limiting their range.  I close off a bedroom, for instance, and get the ones in there.  This is time consuming and traumatic on them and me, unless I'm super efficient.  They get wormed at the sam

Getting a T shirt I think. Going to have it say, "Don't tell me your woes, I can't handle it", I don't know why but last months I've been on overload. So many people in trouble and my brain keeps going, probably because of being alone too much, trying to think up ways to solve all these problems people are havi

Yesterday, the weather here was cloudy and humid.  Today began the same.  I have paid little attention since I became ill.  But yesterday I felt better. I ate no breakfast but went out for lunch, at a down town Mexican restaurant, joined by a friend I see every few months, who works down town.  It was nice to get out,

I'm still not right physically. Been sleeping lots, went and got prilosec and some ginger ale to sip, have eaten almost nothing.  I am much better than Tuesday which was the worst day.  I just wonder what has gone on. I looked up all the things I could have contracted that include severe stomach pain, muscle soreness, f

I planned this get away to Detroit Lake.  I took my raft.  A cat lady friend owns a small motel there and gave me one night as a gift then I bought a couple more nights. Things did not go well.  I became sick even before I went, stomach locked, terrible gas pain. But I went anyway, thinking it too late to cancel and th

I went to the lake today. I suppose it was stupid.  It's Saturday.  A zillion people were up there, most with very fast motorized boats of all kinds.  Hardly a day for my raft.  Oh well, I went anyhow. I lucked out and found a parking space.  But there was a huge back up of boats waiting to launch.  With my raft, at

Our summer here has been exceedingly mild, to say the least. We've had four days from spring til now where we made it to 90 or almost to 90.  Yesterday was one of those.  We've had almost no wildfires, which is a big plus to this mild summer, no skies clogged in smoke, although the dust has begun, tearing up my eyes, tur

Be careful what you wish for. I had another guy come yesterday afternoon, with his manager, his girlfriend lol. To take down the ten foot maple stump.  He had a bigger longer saw.  Yet still, it took a couple hours. He too was afraid of which way it could fall, despite the rope I still had on the top, for someone to pu

I saw a post from someone else, on a friends page, wishing her heartfelt love.  I wondered why and contacted my friend, called her up in fact.  I worried she might be ill. She answered and was in California, in a hospital, her son having just gone into surgery.  Her son had a motorcycle racing accident, and looks like h

Yesterday I took a long planned trip to the coast clinic with Sassy. I knew she was having mouth problems.  She would drop food she was trying to eat and sometimes work her jaw.  Sassy is feral but even without any drooling, I could tell from a distance she had trouble going on.   I have had this appointment for over t

I have met some great people on Facebook, met them online that is, never really met them in person.  I can make them into anyone I want when I never meet them or have real interaction with them. For all I know they are nothing as portrayed, maybe not even the same sex as portrayed, or don't live in the same country they p

I had so much fun with Pebbles and Beanie and little Kai, from the Knox Butte road ditch.  I'd given Kona, Kai's mom, back three of her kittens, Keanu, Leilei and Kalani, after she became depressed and angry after her spay.  Yesterday, I laced wet food with catnip and gave it to her, so she would be a little drugged when

If the weather is going to be depressing, at least I have kittens. They're a hoot and I can't really be frowning with kittens around. Here are a few more photos.  I'll say that Pebbles, the trailer park brown tabby girl kitten, isn't taking it so well, having four more little companions in the bathroom.  I took the

So far its the summer that isn't, here in the valley where I live. Rain, clouds, very little sun.  All winter we wait and hope for a sunny summer.  ALL FRICKING GRAY RAINY WINTER. When summers are like this, it is almost unbearable. I still hope for a break out into summer type weather, our usual.  Not this crap we

Not much I can do at the moment still having two trailer park kittens in my bathroom and all the shelters and rescues full. I had noticed a decrease in appetite with Beanie and Pebbles, the pair in the bathroom, and began to worry.  Then I saw loose dark stool and worried more.  What terrible parasitic infection might th

It's a holiday, middle of the week one, too which throws me off kilter for a few days. Oh well. I went or was going, to go cherry picking up in N. Albany, for any cherries I might want, and a piece of pie afterwards, after we pitted them. The cherries did not look good.  Many were half rotted and lots of the others were

The summer, which many of us here in gray and dreary land, look forward to for all those awful wet and yukky months, has not panned out this year so far. We've had a few sunny days, but not many, and this week, approaching the 4th of July, it's overcast and cloudy and sometimes rainy with threat of possible thunderstorms.

I'm suffering today. Not physical pain.  I'm just crying and so sad.  I got up this morning and did some chores and drank some coffee, then I went online to check my email.   I see a post from a KATA person. It includes photos of the KATA volunteers and other cat rescue people and family of Vicki together.  It's at

How does one deal with the constant influx of horrors on the news. Like the photo of the drowned father and daughter?   He wanted to live in the US and was willing to brave a swift river to try to get here, only to drown with  his little girl. There's no one to blame for it.  Except his home country.  Why can't these

I had my fling with guns. I was young then.  Lived in a tiny Oregon town.  Everyone had guns. Now the gun craze has gone whacky though.  People hoard them and have dozens sometimes.  Hunters go out drunk or high and shoot from their pickups after spotlighting.   Gone are the days of the skillful patient hunter and t

Well, I'm on my summer break now.  Officially. Yesterday was my last clinic appointment day til end of August.   I tried to catch the last two trailer park cats, tried hard, and failed in the end.  Actually it was my shoulder that conked out.  It's been sore awhile, off and on actually for years. I pulled a muscle ou

I'm approaching my summer break, where I'm supposed to take time to enjoy life and heal damaged body parts. But I'm trying to finish off the trailer park.  At the one place, where we've taken already  11 kittens out, and fixed 19 adults, there is still one adult female needing caught, her only remaining kitten, plus two

I love Oregon.  I was born in Oregon.   But the state has just gone to the dogs. I'm not very political.  I don't like Oregon democrats because they harbored a child molester, who was Portland's mayor and then governor.  Many of them knew and did nothing, went along like a pack of sheep.  So I don't vote for Oregon D

I knew there were more than 11 cats roaming that trailer park.   I trapped 11 and took them to be fixed last Monday.   Then Wednesday I took off with a friend to camp a couple of nights on the McKenzie River.   I got back Friday. Saturday afternoon, late, I was at the trailer park again.  I didn't know how many were

I went on a last second camp trip last couple of days. I left Wednesday about 2:30 and was back about the same time today (Friday). A woman invited me.  Her husband was in respite care for a short time, and she, his primary caregiver, was trying to get some relaxation in. Anyhow, she'd bought a site for two nights down

I briefly had some kittens from the trailer park here.  They come, they go. In the brief time here, we play like crazy, I can't help it, they make me so happy. I brought two of the 11 trailer park kittens here, while trapping all those adults to be fixed, going back and forth, scrounging more spay neuter reservations, an
