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.

It's just another A to Z blog post. L is for Lactose. My digestive system can't tolerate Lactose.   And yet..... And yet last night, starved, since I'm doing this feast/famine diet, where you eat under 500 calories one day and normally the next, I gave in to the urge for a grilled cheese sandwich.  The cheese tasted a

Another A to Z blog post day. I better get at it, too. K is for Kitty. In this case, a gray tux girl kitty, whom I trapped with seven others last week, to be fixed.  Only she had a right ear tip, indicating she was already fixed.  However, she was in dire shape---skin and bones, dehydrated with severe diarrhea. Oh no!

It's an A to Z blog post day.   I'm getting lazy about it. J is for Jump! Like rent Jumps, occurring in Portland, and all over Oregon actually. This story made me cry.  It's about the rising rents in Portland.  A 66 year old woman is already working six days a week, but now her rent is going up over $300 a month.  An

It's just another A to Z blog post day.   Because of yesterday's trip to Portland..... I is for Intense Helping people who live way out in Sweet Home, with cat fixing is intense in itself.  Takes 45 minutes to drive up there, one way. I drove up and back a couple of times, to deliver traps and sit and yack while traps

The last day and half, been busy.  Trapping a colony way up in Sweet Home, which is a 45 minute drive one way from here.  It's like trapping in Eugene, only Sweet Home is tiny compared to Eugene and east instead of south. The trailer park where I'm trapping is not unknown to me.  Years ago I trapped there, several times

A to Z blog post day again. Only I got help. Elephants Child said she'd do the H post. Isn't that awesome? Hallelujah! Here is EC's H contribution. Anybody want to write the I post for Monday?H is for Hairballs, Hacked up (with accompanying disgusting noises... H is for Hairballs, Hurled onto soft surfaces for me to

Ah damn, another day, another letter of the alphabet in the A to Z challenge.  How'd I get trapped into this scene again.  I am loath to quit anything once I start.  Maybe that's a flaw and I need to try something new, like bagging the A to Z challenge right now. Not today. G is for Good Grief! As in Good Grief, Charl

Today is the F day for A to Z blogging. I'll go with a nice safe topic today. F is for Friends Who says cats are solitary creatures.  Somebody not in the know. Some are I suppose, probably those raised as single kittens. My cats here all have lots of friends.  But the friend cliques change, who likes who changes, who

Today's A to Z blog post will be a topic ripped from the news. I have homosexual friends.  And heterosexual ones.  All online.  I don't have a lot of real life friends. I don't care who sleeps with who.  None of my business, I think to myself.  Love in general is in short supply in our world.  Plus I read, all the tim

Another A to Z blog challenge post.  Today is D Day! Nope, not an invasion. Just a little something about my baby, Deaf Miss Daisy. The cat. Which is a C word. Yesterday, I left at 4:00 a.m. on a three hour drive with Deaf Miss Daisy and her best buddy Slurpy.  Off to the north coast and the affordable clinic.  We d

Another A to Z blog post.  Today is C day. C is for Catmobile and for Chevy! Not Fords, oh gawd no.  We grew up to believe Fords were evil. The Chevy versus Ford allegiances of that time were akin to today's Republican versus Democrat wars.  And like today's political spats, the war was about loyalty, not about functi

A to Z challenge day post and today's letter be B! B is for Buffet.  Jimmy Buffet that is. How long have I been a Parrothead (Jimmy Buffet fan)?  Long time.

The A to Z blog challenge begins today.  So, here is my A post! A is for Architect. I am one, as of today.  And yesterday. I built that darn fence.  Thought I would die yesterday, digging five fence post holes with a post hole digger. I designed the fence first in the architectural section of my brain.  Which is a s

I live in a freeway town.  Cars and concrete.  It can drive a nature lover nuts fast! We don't have nice hiking parks, just those block parks of tailored slightly neon colored grass, with a bench or two, and maybe a sawdusted area with some children's play equipment.   Heck we barely have sidewalks in much of the town a

Took three cats to be fixed today--Opie, Lulu and Puma.  Even low cost spay neuter is spendy in this area. For the three, it cost $120.  I'm supposed to get copays from two of the caretakers, but I'm never sure they will come through.  I hope they do.   I like to believe people are honest.  One had promised to have it

I met Calico John for what I thought would be the first and last time way back in January of 2009. A vet had given out my number to one of his clients who fed strays and I dutifully went to work immediately on the colony and trapped 10 or so cats.  They were fixed at an FCCO mobile clinic over at the Benton County fairgro

Like every holiday, Easter is a mix of pagan and Christian traditions. Easter is the 2nd most candy consuming holiday in the US, falling behind only Halloween as a sugar glutton's best day of the year. I went on a search to find out why the rabbits and eggs are included in a day Christians celebrate the resurrection of Ch

The cherry tree is covered in blooms  The trees think spring is here, but its still gloomy and raining.  The weather was supposed to break yesterday and be a nice sunny day. Didn't happen, just more rain.  Now the weather people say maybe next Wednesday will be nice. (sound of sobbing) This leftover of

Last year's filing for nonprofit status with the feds was easy.  I had no clue it was so easy, in fact.  I found the 990-EZ form three weeks into trying to figure out the long form.  I had to read the instructions, then look up words to see what they meant, read again, research, but the work trying to fill out and unders

Google has gone over the top.  They are dumping Picasa, the best online photo storage, editing and organizing program out there.  My relationship with google is like living with someone you tolerate but really don't like much and are a little worried that person might stab you in your sleep. And for what has google excha

We had two gorgeous days of relief from the rain.  One of those days was actually sunny.  Yesterday, not so much sun, but at least there was not rain.  But its back and forecast at least for another week.  Rain every day.  Do you know what this constant wet does to a person's brain? Nothing good. Bernie Sanders is ha

After the harassment I sat through last night, as a volunteer, trying to help out a neighborhood by getting cats fixed, I think laws need changed. It's totally ridiculous that people can let their unfixed cats loose on a neighborhood, to breed, fight and spread disease fighting and breeding. It's totally ridiculous that

I spent a useless evening attempting to catch the white female at the Geary St. colony.   Feeders won't stop feeding, or even get cats in their own yards fixed. Lots of owned cats out free roaming too in that area. There was a new arrival, a skinny light orange and white male, yowling piteously, looking for cheap sex.

I was up half the night watching car repair videos on Youtube. This morning I was at it early.  I removed the heat cover, which is just four bolts. And there were the coil packs right there, easy to access, with the spark plug wires attached.  Because it was so dirty, and I might be a little bit of a clean freak, while

My beloved little car broke down tonight. Began stuttering when I pushed on the gas, then violently shaking and vibrating and would barely get me the two blocks home.  Check engine light came on, along with VSC or VCS, can't recall which way that goes,  and TRAC off lights. I don't think its running on all its cylinder

Here is my plan of action for removing the larger trunk/branch of the cherry tree.  It involves three ropes.  The topmost rope will slip knot around one fork of the right branch, go above a small branch and behind the larger branch of the left forked trunk, to use as a fulcrum to keep the top upright once cut. The secon

I was happy to see my brother yesterday.  I didn't get any pictures, darn it. He'd been trying to buy an equipment trailer from an Albany company.  The first one he wanted was stolen, the day before he was set to come buy it.  But this one wasn't stolen first and he picked it up then stopped by.  I thought it was prett

Maggie the kitten is obsessed with the red dot of the laser pointer.   A few months back, a friend walked over, knocked on my door.  She wanted to borrow a trap, which I lent her.  Two kittens had appeared on the block behind her and were crying loudly.  She hand grabbed the boy, but the little girl then took off.  She

The maple thinks spring is here.  It isn't. Unless spring means even more rain. I was fooled too, briefly, yesterday, and went out to trim the Butterfly Bush, where it drifts over the fence into the yard of my deceased neighbor.  That house will sell at some point, if it doesn't rot to death first.  So better now than

Been in haze lately.  Too much drear in dear Oregon. Rain, gray, drizzle, ick. Someone should get on that, fix it. I was so ready last summer for global warming to hit Oregon.  Nice and hot all summer, month after month.  I was smiling inside but I had to scowl outwardly in some circles.  "The Sky is Falling&quo
