Oh my catness!!!
KITTIES! Did you see the green triangle up there? Is this true? Can it be so? Are they not shutting us down?
I haven't said anything about Catster closing over here because me and mommy were in mourning. We didn't know what to do. We didn't want to lose our safe place, our home. We couldn't accept it, we couldn't talk about it, we couldn't deal with it, but now... maybe we don't have to! Look kitties! Look at the green warning up there! They aren't shutting us down! Can it be true? Oh please be true! Don't take away my River safe place! I need as many safe places as I can find!

Hi there kitties,
I hope you all had a great holiday season, man it was a long one wasn't it? Parents were so busy I didn't have much of a chance to log in again but now it's over and I can breathe again.
Well, I ended the holidays on a very low note. My crystals came back. I spent the evening of the 30th running in and out of my box without being able to do anything, a few hours later I started crying and crying, mommy came and watched me and she started to get very nervous. She called her vet but they were closed for the evening and only going to be open for a very few hours on New Year's Eve before closing all day New Year's Day. They gave her an emergency hotline to call but no one called back from that and instead gave her another number to call. By this point mommy was very nervous and trying to decide what to do with me, daddy was pacing the house because he defers all River health decisions to mommy (mommies know best!) She called the third number and it was an emergency vet clinic my vet contracts with. Mommy decided I'm more important than the bill so into the carrier I went.
It was a bit of a drive into Sacramento, she kept letting me pop my head up to watch the traffic around us go by, it was so dark, I tried to climb into mommy (No really, I wanted to be INSIDE her for the safety!) We finally got there and luckily things went very smoothly.
The place was very clean and neat, there were only a few other patients at the time so we got right in. The vet who saw me was a nice guy, he explained everything to mommy and treated me super nice. He said that luckily I wasn't blocked. Phew! But that I was 100% empty and straining. They gave me some pain killers and medication along with some new medicated nom noms and sent me home. Mommy kept raving about how fast and cheap it was (I thought I was priceless?) and she was very grateful to them for not emptying her wallet and sucking up her whole evening so she could get home and snuggle my brains out! (Oh mommy... come on... the guys are going to read this!)
Anyways, it's been a week and I'm doing pretty well. Yesterday I threw all of mommy's magnets on the fridge onto the floor, yowled for cat treats (I'm HUNGRY!!! and SICK of veterinary food!!!) and then I jumped onto her desk, found her pile of paperwork and bills, and made myself a nest to sleep in. This one seemed to annoy her the most which is weird because I was RIGHT THERE next to her, she should feel flattered I want to be with her right? I guess she decided that means I'm doing pretty well because the lethargic crying baby is gone, now time for the zooming yowling baby to emerge! Hehehe! MEEEEERRROOOWWWW! (I'm trying to learn how to Mrat like sister but it's an art-form and I haven't mastered it yet!)
Anyways, how was your holiday season kitties? I hope it went a little smoother than mine, no emergency vet trips for anyone else right?

And oh yes, to everyone who purred for my friend Vash, I'm happy to report, he's doing much better! A calming collar on him and his brother is working wonders and his UI is cleared up from the medication. Thank you so much kitties, it meant a lot to me how many of you would purr for a kitty you've never met before without asking any questions. You're all the bestest!

I want to ask for a favor from all of you this holiday season, would you purr for my friend Vash? Vash is one of two kitties who lives with one of mommy's oldest childhood friends, they've been friends for years and years and years! He's been sick kitties, he has a urinary infection and he's so stressed out he pukes every time his mommy gives him his anti-biotic drugs. She's very worried about him, she loves him and his brother so much. My mommy... friends with crazy cat ladies from the start. Clearly, this means she's good people! Please kitties? Could you spare some Power of the Paw for a friend in need this Thanksgiving?

Ok kitties, I think I managed to send out all my birthday and gotcha day thank yous with one very notable exception and I'm feeling bad about it so I have to apologize here to everyone. Any kitty who was kind enough to me to send me a gift that only lasted 2 weeks... they expired before I sent my thank yous and I don't know where to find them anymore. I'm sorry kitties. I really wanted to send all of you a delicious home baked nom nom pie (You have NO idea how long mommy was baking last night to make all those pies for me!) but I took too long and I missed the window for some of you. I'm very sorry whoever you are. It was very generous of you to send me a present but I can't remember who did, you are all welcome to stop by for some pie though (even if you didn't send the gift you can stop by for pie... pie is delicious!) I just wanted to let you know, I'm sorry, and I love and appreciate the gifts you sent, mommy just took her sweet time sending my thank yous, sisfur got hers done days ago so she didn't have this problem, guess we know whose mommy's favorite right now! (AND Catster's... don't think I didn't see that DDP honor today Catster! Sheesh!)
Other than that kitties, life is going pretty good for me still right now. I'm still not wearing a collar after Halloween cause mommy took off my glow in the dark pumpkin one and forgot to put on my old one, so I have no bell and that makes me very sneak! hehehe! Shhhhhhhhh gonna sneak up on mommy and sisfur right now and pounce them... I'm coming for you ladies! hehehe!

Oh for Fuzz Ball's Sake... sisfur AGAIN? You know Catster, I gots t live with her after you pick her. Sure it's all well and good until some starts MRATing her away around the house and thinking she's all that and a bag of cat treats!
You should pick me! I've got some good stories to tell... let me think... ok, nothing exciting has happened to me recently, but I'm a cat, not exciting is a good thing for me! hehehe! Mommy has been brushing me EVERY SINGLE NIGHT for the past 2 weeks. She says my coat looks GLORIOUS now, I think it's getting old. I do like to play with the brush though, and I try to eat the big hair balls she takes off me. Hey... they came from me, they must be delicious!

Oh my catness, kitties, you guys are all too generous! Look at all these presents me and sisfur got for our Gotcha Day! I don't even know what to say! We're going to try to thank you all individually but there are a lot... so it might take a little while!
That's right kitties, 5 years ago mommy and daddy walked into Happy Tails pet sanctuary in Sacramento and walked out with one very happy River Cat and Simone! I was super quiet the whole ride home cause I was a little nervous about thing. I mean, sure, I convinced daddy to take me home by falling asleep in his lap in the big kitty room, but still, this was a whole lot of different! When I finally did open my mouth and say something... mommy and daddy melted! I have the sweetest little baby meow in the world and it comes out of great big old me hehehe!
After a few days I really warmed up to my new family, it took a little while cause I'm a hesitant guy (Not with sister, I loved sister immediately, she's awesome) but since I have it's been nothing but perfection since then. I love my home, I love my family, I love my life. I'm so happy they adopted me, adult River with FIV, they didn't care, they love me as I am. Life doesn't get any better than this and I hope some day all the kitties of the world can know this feeling, cause it's the best, am I right or am I right?

HOORAYS and HAPPY RIVER DANCES for every kitty near and far, today is Halloween! Everybody gets cat treats and cat nips and all the good cat stuff! Thank you every furr for all the neat-o dancing skeletons on my page. I would like to send them back but mommy doesn't have the time to click on every individual name on my friends list, anyone know a short cut for sending a gift to LOTS and LOTS of kitties all at once? That'd be pretty neat!
Either way, hope you all had an awesome pawsome Halloween, I sure did. We didn't get a single trick or treater out here, mommy is kinda bummed but I'm delighted! A nice, quiet, Halloween; just the way I like 'em!

Mommy knows she hasn't been on caster much. She keeps swearing she'll come back, but she never does. So many beautiful friends have crossed over the bridge recently and we're so sad that we haven't been here with our kitty family for these moments of loss and grief. We can make excuses. The site is slow, it takes forever to load, it hasn't been properly debugged, the formatting isn't conducive to easy browsing, but when all is said and done, we still haven't been here very much, and we should have been. We loved this place so much. We want to say we're back for good now, but we can't promise that because only time will tell, but we want to be. We're going to make an honest effort to come back. Kitties, will you take us back? The prodigal River Cat and his meezer sister? We want our family back. We've missed you all, we're so sorry for missing all your special days, all your happy moments, all your sadness and joys alike. We can't catch up on everything, there's too much to read, but we want to try to start fresh.
Will you take us back kitties?
