A Highview Angus Ranch Feline

Mother Nature's little actors

come in all shapes and forms. Every one of them has their script already written and set into place. Indeed, our ranch cats at Highview Angus Ranch serve a very important purpose. They assist to keep the small rodent population under control. If it wouldn’t be for their help we would see unnecessary destruction and disease across the landscape.

Bella comes from a line of cats that have been residing at Highview Angus Ranch for decades. Outside influence from non-related felines helps to keep the offspring healthy and vigorous.

These cats are WILD and that is how we want to keep it! Very seldom will one of them allow me to get as close as I did this morning. Being wild not only increases their chances of survival in the wild dramatically, it also minimizes the chances of being stolen by someone without knowing why they must stay a part of nature instead of adding to the comfort of a residence.

Between 2007 and 2009, Angelika worked in radio as the news and sports director for owners Lee and Carol Lee Perkins at KWVR Radio in Enterprise, Oregon. After the station was sold, she created Wallowa Valley Online, an independent online news magazine publishing and writing news and engaging in photojournalism. After ten years of Wallowa Valley Online, Angelika decided to concentrate on her professional photography, write more human interest stories, and volunteer at the Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland.

Regarding my writing: "As a grandchild of post-war Europe (ethnic ancestry Bohemian/Austrian/German) and former Army spouse, I have lived and visited many places across the globe. Wallowa County, Oregon, has been my home since 2002. I am the daughter of a mom whose country violently vanished post-WWII. Her family was forcefully removed from Bohemia in 1946 when she was only six years young and sent to West Germany in cattle wagons. Her life story has tremendously impacted my own and formed my views on humanity and, at times, the lack thereof.
My formal college education is in the nursing field and psychology, which finds itself in my work as a writer and photographer. I am a humanitarian by heart and soul." ~Angelika Ursula Dietrich
