We all are enjoying all our new gifts from Santa. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas too. We all are a little woozy today from all that catnip last night. Tee Hee.
We had a wonderful day and Girl Human fed the feral colony she has been introduced to since Mr. Z has been missing. She bought some nice canned foods and Iams Kitten food for them. When she arrived they had a lot of dishes of things there for them. It made her so happy that at this busy time of year they were not forgotten. They were all happy to see what other things have been brought to them for their Christmas feast. They has a nice mid 50 degree sunshine day. They did have a very nice Christmas and dinner with a big kitty family. They were all playing in the field and lazing around. Made Girl Humans heart feel good for them this one day.
We are now without our Mr. Z for 6 weeks and we regret to say that We did not get our Christmas wish. We know that he had a very important mission to fer-fill. We hope that he is bring joy to someone who needed so badly. God be with him.
Girl Human has to be looking in a new direction this coming year as she hopes to get a new job. It is a hard time to look. She would love to get something that she could work with kitties and bring them joy plus get paid for it. Know that is a dream job and it would be so hard to find here in our area. She will have to make do with something more down to earth and rewarding at the same time. So we all have our Paws Crossed for a super 2012 for all of you and us here at the Junction. Have a wonderful 2012 and may some of your wishes come true too. Nudges from all. Winkie Winkie from me Annie Spokescat.

Hey everyone our Kitty Bennie, is now ready to be introduced to all our Catster furrrends.
He is very camera shy.
We hope you will stop in and visit his page and give him an invite to be your new Catster furrrennd.
His fears are subsiding and more pictures are sure to follow. Bennie is our work in progress. He has been at the Junction for over a year but was not ready for the public "hoop ha" until now.
So please give him a big Catster welcome.
Give to the Fundrazer for Mr. Z.
Help to bring Mr. Z Home.

I'm sorry that I have not been on the last few days but Girl Human has been busy getting all those Christmas gifts wrapped and the house still needs a cleaning. She said she will not be on much over the holidays.
One bit of good news was given to us. The cat that the truck driver saw along side the road was seen by Male Human and it was not Mr.Z.. A woman called, said the body was off the road in a ditch. Male Human drove to the place and after several drives back and forth he found the poor thing. It was a bitter sweet moment for both of us.
Girl Human will be off Catster for the next few weeks and wants to wish every Caster Human and kitty a wonderful Holiday.
She also wants to thank all those wonderful kitties and Humans for the contributions given during the Mr.Z Quest. The fundrazr on Annie Spokescat's Facebook page has brought some help also. We thank you very deeply. We are not giving up on our Quest and want to have a new fresh set of signs made with a different photo and message.
So everyone "HAVE A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY" and BUY AMERICAN. We have.

Note from Girl Human:
Today a young boy came to me and asked if I had found Mr.Z. He was holding one of the many cards i have passed out.
He told me he looks every day at the ferals at the shopping center. He said, "I will watch every day for you". He works for the Goodwill, an organization that gives special needs people jobs. They have been very helpful with placing a sign on their land next to the shopping center.
A lot of the kids are getting in on the search as the bus drivers are showing them the pictures I given them. Today I gave the Chinese Restaurant kids some pictures. They said the bus driver had shown them the photo and they would like one for themselves. They were studying it closely as I left.
I had no phone calls today. I only slept 4 hours as had to give Christmas some attention. I need to take some time and pay more attention to the guys here too. Christmas is getting closer and like everyone else. I'm so far behind on everything. We do have a tree and unwrapped gifts a start. I sure hope all of you are more organized then I.
Hope all of you have a good eve. Please give your furs a big hug tonight and a big kiss. Tell them you love them and need them. Good night Catster's and have a good tomorrow.

Girl Human Speaks.
I have been having a lot of response from the signs. I have answered so many calls and received a lot of compliments on the approaches I have made on bring Mr. Z home.
Now, a new wrinkle has happened. 3 of my signs have disappeared. I had received permission to place them. One very curiously is located at the very spot a State Trooper hangs out all the time to catch speeders. The very same State trooper who told me "it better not happen again," just a few days ago while I was placing my signs along the highway.
Either it is a very guilty party or someone who has allowed his job to go to his head. I feel victimized. Several illegally placed signs were left behind and only mine were taken.
One property owner called me twice yesterday very upset that the sign was gone. I thought they may have placed it inside for safe keeping. They were taken off of private property. Maybe this person thought of a better place to display the sign. Could it be??
I'm so very tired. Yesterday, I had to shut off my phones to get some uninterrupted sleep. These poor people were so upset and kept trying to call me. I didn't answer. Now these people are asking for more signs that I don't have.
I have always been a responsible person trying to do all the right things, plus try in bring home Mr. Z. It just makes me ill to know that I'm now fighting the loss of Mr. Z plus a silent battle with a guy who seems to think we are playing a game. This has not shaken my faith. One rotten egg is not going to stop my Quest.
Well, I dare say that this has been a real journey for me. It has been an eye opener to a whole new realm of things. The journey is far from over. I am going to give it my all. One or two people are not going to deter me from my Quest. I have met so many genuine caring people. I'm not going to point fingers and put any heads on the chopping block over signs. It's just the principle as a whole. These signs are not cheap but I will find a way to get more.
All I can say it there are some people who need to grow up and act responsible. The other side is, there are a lot more people who are grown up and accept what's thrown their way. They move on to what is really important and leave behind the ignorant, dishonest, and uncaring.
So on with my quest!!!! Let's bring Mr.Z back to were he belongs his forever home Calico Junction.

The weekend has run here and there look for a kitty in this spot ck out this lead.
My first lesson was the law and signs. I was placing a sign at an intersection and placed it a good 6 feet from the curb. I was walking back to my car and a car horn blew and a man waved at me and rolled down his window. It was a State Trooper. He said, you can't do that, It's an access. No it's not, yes it is!!! Well, OK???? I could write you up. Don't let me see that again.
Most of my signs were placed on private property with the owners permission. This sign was in a nice prime place and with all the roads and all the places I had to pick the corner the Trooper would be driving in at 7:15 in the a.m.. My luck. He told me, everyone does it, but it's against the law. You "BETTER NOT DO IT AGAIN".
The bad thing I saw at least 20 signs on my way home right against the curb. Some were real estate signs too. Today I went by that corner and three signs are there now right on the curb. They were hand written cardboard signs not a nice professional sign like mine.
Well that's the way my luck has been going.
We have had a lot of sightings some very lose others several miles. Plus lots of calls just wanting to talk and give advise.
I had a call from a truck driver today saying he saw my cat dead on the road. He was on his return trip when he called and offered to stop and place it off the road for me. When he got to the location it was gone. He said it was definitely dead. Someone must have claimed it. He said, he saw it playing near the road the other day and it was such a beautiful cat. He kept telling me how sorry he was. I drove 35 miles and found nothing.
I'm sure have been meeting a lot of nice people.
It gives me a good feeling to know there are so many really caring people in the day and age. Gives all of us hope. The world is a much better place then we have been lead to believe these last few years.
Here is an e-mail I received from a women in my area. I had sent a picture to her for ID.
WOW!!! It would be easy to recognize him... What a BEAUTY!!! I'm sure he will turn up... I will keep looking... Like I
Said odds were against us ever seeing Tyler again... But he's home safe and sound... Didn't hurt to try...
Her cat disappeared the same week Mr.Z was lost. She was a lucky person and now we are e-mailing each other. I told her about Catster so maybe you will be seeing her here.
Paws Crossed here.

Today after Girl Human was awoken by a woman from work and had only gotten 3 1/2 sleep she received a call from Domino's Pizza. They want me to bring photo's down for their drivers of Mr. Z.. I told them there was a Reward. He told me that didn't matter. They just want to bring Mr.Z back home. What a nice thing. Many people who have called said the same thing the Reward didn't matter. I have also snagged a few people for joining Catster. TEE HEE, always working for the good of Catster. Not much more to tell today. Will be going to look on the sites to see any new postings today then to work. Bye for now.

Note from Girl Human:
Our Mr.Z has been missing now for 3 weeks. One of the best things I have discovered in my Quest for Mr.Z. The purchase of signs. The ones you see stuck in the ground all over with those little metal stakes. They advertize businesses/specials/sales. These corrugated plastic all weather signs are start at around $9.00 with stands. The more you buy the lower the price. I purchased 15-18x24 full color signs. I placed them all around the area. I'm going to move them weekly. I have had more phone calls and people asking more info on the missing Mr.Z. I have received e-mails and calls (14 so far) and have looked at a lot of Black and White cats ever since. Having a few of these signs made in advance to post the day kitty goes missing would be a wonderful idea as an ounce of prevention and a good back up to chipping. One thing I did was place 2 signs in my vets yard.
Another very good contact has been Petfinders. This is a very good, under publicized site. This should be given a lot more attention and advertizing so that the NON PET people are aware where to go to look/post for lost/found pets.
Every Vets should post a flyer or give out flyers to every customer to promote this site more.
I started a Facebook page on Annie Spokescat called, Lost Cat in Stuarts Draft Virginia Mr.Z. I refer people to it so they can see more photos and a video of or guy. I also place a Paypal fundrazr to help with the cost and reward. I have gotten a little response on that. Every little bit helps. The Reward keeps growing thanks to some really fine people. We have not had good news but we will keep trying and using new idea.
