Arrival Story:
My daughter, Susan, and I found Natasha at the animal rescue league in town. She had no id on her cage but her paws were reaching outside. When we held her there, she was licking both of us. We took her home the next day after we were given the "ok" to own her. Susan had to wear a ski hat on at night because Natasha would groom Susan's hair until it was all wet. Natasha was our second cat. She had to tolerate Ben, my Maine Coon, who was a diabetic. He was also treated for a hyperthyroid by radiation. He was also on FUS for for urinary problems. Natasha ate his food without a problem. They were not close but they did well together until he was given his wings when he was 16 and she was eight and a half. She was not crazy about our new kitten, Alex, but she tolerated him until recently.

Natasha in her last couple of years developed a health problem that was not found until her last year. The vet thought that she was just scared of Alex because she hide. It turned out that she had an iris melanoma. The vet thought that it was cataracts but it was more serious. It affected her well-being because she was becoming nervous and scared of everything. She stayed in my bedroom. Poor Alex missed his friend and would wait for her to come out. Finally at the cat hospital, Angell's, they diagnosed the iris melanoma and removed her eye. She did well and her appetite returned. She had a wonderful Spring and Summer. Then, in the late Fall, she started to miss her litter box and her appetite decreased. At the end of November, I brought her in to the vet several times. With blood tests and a biopsy, it was found that the cancer returned to her liver and was spreading quickly. She was given her wings on December 3, 2011. She was such a sweet cat. She would purr until I put my head down on my pillow. She slept with me those last years. She cuddled at the top of the bed. Alex has never gone where she slept even after she was passed over to the Bridge. She was indeed our sweet princess...and will always be missed...

The Last Forum I Posted In:
goodbye to our pal Zeke

When she came to us, she was under a year. We don't know her exactly age so I chose Valentine's Day. She was just three pounds and had a litter of kittens who did not survive. She must have been someone's cat because she was not afraid of us.

Natasha, you made it again. You are the pick of the sweetest cats around. I will add your newest picture here. We miss you so much but you live on in many ways. Juliette has made Alex her friend as you did. They cuddle together and she allows him to groom her. We miss you so much and your unique loves. I can never look at whipped cream without thinking of you. You would come running when I had cereal. You loved milk like no other cat whom I have met. You were so smart and kind. Many of your friends have passed on since you left but Ashlynne is doing well. I am glad that we could help her. We loved you and will always have a hole in our heart but we couldn't keep you here. May you and Ben help others at the Bridge as you helped us here......your family......


May we meet again on another site.

March 3 is the birthday of Juliette and my real daughter, Amy but it is the end of a time when we shared ideas, helped others, and supported those going through a tough time.
Now, Catster will be gone. There seems to be no point coming here just to read articles. It is the friendships that were made here that made it more special than any place.
May we meet again......Your friends, Natasha, Alex, Juliette and Bem


Mother's Day Flowers

I am going to thank each one of those who sent me flowers on Mother's Day. It was such a sweet thought of them. I lost my litter of kittens when I was very young. My "mom" found me at the animal rescue league right after I lost them. I was so small, just three and half pounds. My "mom" thought that I was a kitten myself but I was just over a year old when she brought me home. I wish that I could have seen my kittens but I am seeing them now from the Bridge. They are as pretty as I am. They returned to homes where they will be loved. I do believe that I will return one day....Meanwhile, being a guardian to my family is my job. Thank you everyone......Guardian angel Natasha.
