The old woman told me off.  I'm not living up to her expectations.  She is experiencing loss of patience with me and wants me to hurry and get this done.  She expressed this dissatisfaction when I asked her again not to feed today, to make it more likely to catch some cats tonight, since I caught only three more this mor

I went out into my yard this evening and saw this: As if the fire blob in the sky the other night was not enough. Now Venus and Jupiter are conjunctering.  Or something.  Moving in on each other.  Won't happen again for a really long time, so step out and take a look just after dark.  Look west to northwest. I

How blindly optimistic I can be sometimes. I called the old woman last night, to be sure she is feeding under the drop trap. She wasn't.  "You must be strong" I chided in jest, "resist those demanding cute little faces.  Make them go under the drop trap if they want wet food." "I'm out of wet fo

Last night, I was awake in the night, due to some loud illegal fireworks.  I couldn't get back to sleep immediately.  Later on, about 3:30 a.m. I looked out my window, because I thought I heard a car out front and saw a fire ball in the sky, not very high up, looked about basketball or volleyball size. It drifted along, w

I'm happy.  I'm also tired. Seven more trailer park cats were fixed today up in Portland at the FCCO. Two females, one of them lactating, and five males, two of them kittens.  I netted one of them in the shed last night, already so tired I was losing track of things, like my head lamp and kittens. I didn't have the sen

Jake Jake took a road trip with me again yesterday.   He seemed excited sitting in my carrier by the car, outside.  He's a good boy.  He acts feral, but I know he really isn't, that once, as a cute kitten at least, somebody loved him.  They did not get him fixed, and likely he roamed off looking for love years ago and

Black male cat from trailer park before fixing And him yesterday!  Love that great ear tip! I took a few more photos yesterday at the trailer park.  Initially I thought I was going to trap more to be fixed Thursday, but turns out there's no money to get that done here.  I requested reservations with the FCCO in thei

All 8 cats are fixed now.  I returned the four owned ones to their trailer.  So they came and took possession of the four adults cats, three of them girls.  I'd also taken their 8 kittens clear to Portland. They didn't even ask about them. The three from the other trailer park turned out to be one black girl, Una I nam

Tomorrow's the clinic where KATA had 8 free fixes available.  The Lebanon situation was a bust, yes, but I had no trouble finding 8 unfixed cats.  All 8 cats I will be taking come from local trailer parks.  In addition to the 8 cats to be fixed, 8 kittens will leave for a Portland rescue. KATA has a long list from peopl

Today we remember Dr. Alexander Rich, a student and colleague of Linus Pauling who passed away in April at the age of 90. Rich and Pauling were among the group of scientists who embarked on one of the most exciting scientific quests of the 20th century – the so-called “race for DNA.” Rich’s friends and colleagues
