First off, I’d like to give you a big hug and thanks for visiting my site! I provide quality information on cats & cat care and also give you a good dose of my opinions on “all things cat.” I normally have around 20 cats at home and I feed six (& counting) cat herds every morning throughout my paper route here in NW Georgia, USA. I’ve fed a few of those same cats for as long as eight years now!
So, thank you again for your support. I also rescue cats that are in distress and pay to have them spayed or neutered. While finding good homes for them is often challenging (to say the least), sometimes I succeed!
Why I’m the Crazy Old Cat Woman:
Now, you’re probably wondering if it’s that I don’t want the stray cats to be alone or for me not to be alone. Well, it’s probably both. However, after about 30 years of rescuing stray, abandoned, and distressed kitties, I have plenty of company – albeit, not a lot of human company, but that’s O.K with me.
And, you may also be wondering why I’m the Crazy Old Cat Woman and not the Crazy Old Cat Lady. That’s simple: I’M NO LADY! Ha!
OH! I am currently spending approximately $120 per week on catfood and kitty litter for my cats and food for the six cat herds I feed every morning. (And, not to mention the hundreds I spend every year on spays & neuters, flea & worm treatments, and the inevitable vet visits.)
So, if you would like to help me with this big expense, and have the means to do so, it will be greatly appreciated. You can contribute by shopping at my Amazon store on this site, and/or by donating directly through PayPal. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for your support!
Public Service Announcement:
Even though it’s not Halloween yet, please continue to keep a close eye on your ebony & all colored cats – for that matter. I have come to find out the hard way that there are evil people who seek out homes with cats in the yard, and then come back later to “catnap” any they can get their grimey hands (or hooks or nets or whatever they use) on. This has evidently been happening to me for years and I was just recently alerted to this by a guest on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory.
On July 27th of 2017, the guest (whose name I can’t remember right now) said that that very night was one of the Satanist ritual nights, and that they send people out two nights before to gather cats for sacrifice. Lo, and behold, on that very evening at dusk (the 25th), I had two beautiful calicoes stolen from my yard – Mary Jane, who would be ten years old right about now, and Baby, who was only two years old and who was my best friend and sleeping buddy under the covers. I miss them both so much!
Now that I have become aware of this phenomenon and of the Satanist ritual dates, beware to anyone who ventures into my yard with the intent on harming and/or stealing any of my cats!
UPDATE – This July, I was concerned (more than than usual) for the safety of my cats as I have had to literally run-off people two times this year who were trying to bait my cats from the roadside. Evidently, they would place food several feet from the road in the bushes to lure an unsuspecting feline to the area. I always try to get all my cats inside before dark (usually by herding them with the can opener), however, there are a couple of them that are difficult to keep inside all night.
On the evening of July 23rd, I let my Mattie Bell (another beautiful calico) outside after supper with the intent of getting her back in later. But, she was never seen again. The “catnappings” seem to happen around dusk. I could kick myself in the ass for letting her out. I should have known better even if it was two days earlier than the previous thefts!
Also, for the past couple of weeks or so, I have seen several “Lost Cat” flyers around the area when I very rarely see any. A couple of years ago, I would see a lot of “Lost Dog” flyers and someone told me that people were stealing dogs and selling them – for whatever purpose, I’m not sure, but one reason given was that they were being used to train fighting dogs. Yuk!
These evil people need to remember that “What goes around, comes around.”! Next year, I hope to be living in a different, more secluded place, but I will still be cautious. Again, your support will help get moved to a better place and I thank you for that.
