We have been lucky so far. The lights go on and off and the internet comes and goes. We have TV for now. The rain is not to bad but very cold. The trees still have a lot of leaves and ice could cause some real issues tonight. We are to get some snow they say. Schools and businesses are closed. Yesterday it was 60 degrees and now snow is in our future. We still have a lot of leaves to pick up. We have not had all the winds just 15 to 20 mph gusts.
All the guys are in their houses cozy and warm. We have a generator if needed to keep everyone comfortable. Hope all of you guys are in a safe place and warm. Prayers for our fur friends on the east coast.

This was a person who left a response from an article written here on Catster's top story on the community page a few weeks ago. I believe it was a response from a Facebook kitty. I have no idea who it was. Just blew my mind, as it has yours.
My question is who is removing them??? It is like horror film in real life. I would not think it was a Vet. If it is they need to be re-educated. What scares me is, is it the individual who responded???? A shock all the way around. I'm still in disbelief here.

All of the sudden, I'm NOT receiving notice on my e-mail account. I ck'ed my settings. A post said they could not let me receive messages for ALL my cats. If anyone has left a comment, a gift or asking to be my friend, I no longer know this without checking each page. This is very so frustrating. Having a forever home for lots of kitties makes it hard to ck every page every day.. I really do like seeing the comments kitties make thru my E-mail. For several weeks there has been no activity on my e-mail account from Catster. An e-mail notice from them would have been nice. It seems with every change that happens here members are left in the dark until it happens. I see I have already missed 2 weeks of activity except what comes thru my pawmail. So sorry everyone.

After yesterday's Catster's Story about Declawing;
Do you think Ernest Hemingway turning over in his grave????
I was reading responses to a subject on declawing. Girl Humans jaw dropped. She read it to Male Human and he did the same. I want to know your thoughts!!!!
A lady replied that she has always had the extra toes removed off Poly-dactyl (Hemingway cats) so it did not create problems. We have had at least 5 in the last 10 years with the oldest being over 12 + yrs. Am I missing something???? Not removing the extras???? The only thing I could see is maybe Mr. Z our 7 toed kitty, may never have disappeared without a trace. She considered it a normal thing to remove them. I have never in all my years heard of this practice. These cats a super hunters and they were placed on ships coming from Europe for that very reason. Please respond.

I know I have talked on this before. For those of you who have lost a pet, I know you understand. For those who never have, I hope you never have to go through this Journey.
Last Nov. we discovered our Mr. Z was missing. We put out alerts on every possible place.
One place did a free e-mail notification to all animal organizations for 100's of miles. I received calls from across the country in places like Oregon, Maine, Fla.to ID cats they had found.
Now over 9 months later we have still not found our beloved Mr.Z. I still receive pictures of cats to ID. .We have had calls from near and as far away. We still as much as 60 miles to look at Black and White cats.
Mr Z has his own Facebook pg for people to go to and look at photo's and learn more about him. It's called - Lost Cat in Virginia Mr.Z.
I Thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for all the wonderful kind words and support you have given us over these long long months. It is so wonderful to know there are a lot of very very wonderful people out there. I look forward to the many more friends waiting to be discovered.

Male Human say's listen to the signs:
Male Human is home and feeling better today. He had a very rough road. He had an injury to his arm and it became infected. His temperature was 101. Girl Human took him to the hosp. Wed night. They gave him a strong IV antibiotic and they told him he could stay. They said the drug would remain in his system for 24 hours and he could go home if he wanted to. We got home at 3:30 in the morning.
The next day he got up at 12:30. His arm looked awful. Red and swollen from his wrist to his mid upper arm reddening quickly twords his armpit. He had a fever with awful chills.
Girl Human took him back to the emergency room and he was admitted to the hospital. He was given IV drip antibiotic after one kind after the another. 4 kinds in all. It was not going away. They told him if he had waited any longer he would have lost his arm.
On Friday a piece of something was removed from it. It looked like a piece of wood/multch imbedded in the wound .
How did it happen??
He was playing with Decker. He pushed the envelope. Decker's tail was telling him he had, had enough. Male Human kept playing with him. Decker grabbed Male Human's arm and clawed and gave him a fairly deep bite. He must have had the mulch in his teeth.
So when your cat says leave me alone--- Listen please. It could cost you a lot more then you realize.

Well here it is a beautiful beautiful day, Completed by a wonderful night. Sitting here with the windows open. Lots of fresh air flowing through all the houses tonight.
Blue is sleeping on his window perch happy as can be. He was allowed to have his window open all day. Since he still can't go out in his run or porch he felt like a special guy. He got to catch up on the neighborhood cat gossip all day with all the ferals. Bella sat on his roof most of the day enjoying the conversations..
Sophia has been doing well. She has even wanted to play with the laser light until it touched her foot then she ran hissing a growling trying to get away from it. Crazy girl she is.
After bragging about our Pooh Bear, he made a mistake last week. He marked Girl Humans Chinese chest, just a little. He was upset because he was not in his room when Male Human came home. Girl Human was not home and his stress levels went up. So he had a little whizzz party before she got back.
We had a few fleas trying to get in out of the cold nights. The Capstar/Revolution treatment was enforced this week. No one has had any extra hitch hikers since Tuesday. Now we get a daily inspection and flea combing. That's the only good part of the whole deal.
The skunk family is digging up the front yard. Free aeration lawn service. A lot of people pay big bucks for that. They are doing it for free. Girl Human is not to happy with the job they are doing. I feel more moth balls are going to be purchased real soon. Don't worry folks we never go near those stinking mothballs.
Our newest member Meshia is settling very well. She has been opening the cabinet doors in the kitchen and slamming them after Male Human goes to bed.
I'm upset. Meshia has been playing with my flat fox toy. She slept on it for several hours. She acted like it was her's. WELL!!! I have been staying very close to Girl Human. That little @#EW&* is moving in on my space.
She spent all day Sunday in Girl Human's lap.
I mean ALL LIV'IN DAY.
Mad, me mad!!!
After I gave her kisses.
Then she does that??
Well I have been trying my best to be kind but it's not easy. No not easy at all.

This is tale about Peaches's morning.
Peaches had eaten his breakfast and climbed up on the cat tree to watch the birds play in the rain. Girl Human was on the computer putting menus on a sight for all to see. When she had finished she mixed a cake and put it in the oven.
Peaches decided it was time to go and read his Catnip news. He took a long break in the front bathroom. He had just settled in and started to read when all the sudden the walls and roof flew up in the air. He just froze. He didn't know what to do!!! He didn't move.
Oh, I'm so sorry said Girl Human. She placed the walls and roof back the way they were suppose to be.
Peaches gathered his heart back into his chest and covered his business and walked to the big bathroom to finish what he had started. He walked past Girl Human embarrassed and without a sound as if he was a mouse.
What was Girl Human thinking???? Why didn't she knock or at least look before she decided to clean the litterbox??? Well, Humans, go figure.

This is from Meshia's diary entry for today:
Shock and AWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!
as written by Meshia:
Girl Human could not believe her eyes.
She was sitting at her computer on Catster.
Annie was sitting on the arm of the chair beside her.
I was just laying on the floor at her feet looking around.
Annie jumped down in front of me.
GET THIS, she licked my forehead.
No hissing, no biting, just lickie lickie.
She then stood and looked at me for a few seconds.
Girl Human and I were in total shock and AWWWWWWWW.
Annie then jumped back up on the arm of the chair and went to sleep.
Blew us away. Well maybe I'm welcomed home now.

I will have to introduce you to our newest kitty here at the Junction. She just happen to be picked DDP. Meshia our Snowshoe.
.Also we have another new kitty who has joined Catster named AZ
A Siamese with only 39 friends. Today was his gotcha day too.
Girl Human was wondering why Meshia was having issues today. She kept jumping up in her lap and looking around. Girl Human knew she wasn't asking to play but wanted to know why she was not on Catster. So now Meshia is happy and has gone to rest on the kitchen counter.
I think she was just trying to make all of us jealous. Well it's working real well. She and I have not gotten to good terms yet. And she's going about as if she is a Queen or something.
Sophia has already hissed at her tonight because she kept bugging her while she was trying to sleep. Meshia ran right into her and rolled on the floor acting like she wanted to play with Sophia. Sophia will have nothing to do with her or playing.
So all in all she is real thrilled to have the special honor of being chosen DDP.
So since it is my job to tell the news at the junction, I have.
I'm not jealous no I'm not jealous. The Fuzz Bucket!!!!
