Hi there kitties!
I just wanted to let all my Catster friends know that if your parents (or you!) have a Facebook page you can enter my holiday photo contest for my etsy company for a chance to win some free catnip toys. You've all heard of my catnip toys right? They are pretty awesome pawsome!
All you have to do is post a picture of yourself enjoying the winter holiday season in any way (any holiday!) to my Facebook page and then you're entered! Winners will be chosen on Christmas Eve. We've all ready got some great entries, there will be a first place, second place, and third place awarded. If we get enough entries we'll give out some honorable mentions as well!
Oh, and if you don't have a facebook account but still want to enter, we can find some way to work that out I thinks! Just message me here, I'm willing to work with you! I want as many kitties entered into the contest as possible because I love seeing all those great photos together and I love giving out catnip toys! hehehe! I'm a pretty laid back guy when it comes to rules! You can enter the contest more than once, everyone in your family can enter, angel siblings can enter, pictures can be photo-shopped or real (they have to be OF YOU though! hehehe!) See? Real laid back! Hope to see some of you in the contest!

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?

Oh my catness kitties, I can't even begin to find all the Easter Eggs you guys sent my way, it's a good thing you didn't hide them! I'd be looking forever! Thank you to all of egg giving friends! You kitties are awesome pawsome!
So, an update on the River Teeth. My teethies look lovely now, but I am short one gorgeous fang and that's a little sad. I was having some problems with the pain management part of it, I was rubbing my face on EVERYTHING, and I do mean EVERYTHING! I knocked over a chair rubbing up against it so much. Hehehe! I also almost rolled off the table rolling around trying to scratch my poor jaw. My favorite though was to follow mommy and cry at her 'mommy, pick me up please!' and then when she did, RUB ALL OVER HER FACE! hehehe! Mommy faces are the best for pain management. Lucky for me my parents love me, so they went and gots me more pain killers from my super awesome vet lady. I have a follow up in 2 weeks to make sure it all still looks good, but I think it will.
And the other quick update, last night, mommy talked to Mr. Big! She gave me my pain killers and was walking past the window in the dinning room when she saw this SUPER FLUFFY tail go by. She looked out, and Chester was snoozing on the towel and Mr Big was at the food bowl eating with his back to Chester, they must be pretty use to one another, that's a good thing, they don't fight anymore! Mr Big looked up, saw mommy, and promptly shuffled around so she couldn't see him as easily and kept eating. Smart guy, food first, mommy second! hehehe! After he cleaned the bowl, he trotted down the steps, stopped on the landing, turned and looked at mommy and said "mraow?" and then sat looking at her. Mommy was so surprised. She smiled at him and cooed about how handsome he is (I'm more handsome of course but I forgive her, she's trying to win him over) He kept talking back to her, when he went the rest of the way down the steps he stopped in the courtyard and groomed his face a little, glanced back up at us, said one more thing, and then trotted off. I think that's pretty good progress kitties. He's no longer spooked by mommy, he knows she's good peoples! He doesn't fight with Chester anymore and he doesn't run when he sees mommy, progress! After he trotted off, mommy went out and pet Chester, turns out, Bell was out there too on our neighbor's stairs. She fights with everybody, so Mr Big must be getting awfully smooth if she didn't fight with him! I'm thinking this guy might actually be catchable kitties! We're going to get that big guy vetted and then, who knows! Maybe I'll have a super cool brofur to play with!

Ok, first off, Thank you SO MUCH to EVERYONE who helped to celebrate my DDP a few days ago! You kitties are Awesome Pawesome! I wanted to give you all a little update since lots of kitties asked about Mr Big and how he's doing now.
I also just want to say that last night mommy took away our food and this morning she took us off to the vet to get our teeths cleaned. I'm not a happy River. They are going to pull my front fang, I'm going to be lopsided fangless. Sad River Meows.
Anyways, last night we had another (this time funny) run in with Mr. Big. I've told you about how Chester and Bell like to hang out on our landing, well into the evening sometimes cause, hey, they are up high and comfy, why should they leave? Mommy and Daddy are good to them and they can see their family coming and going so they knew what's up! Anyways, Chester was hanging out around 8-9 when Mr. Big likes to come for his dinner. Last time, we saw him hiding under the bushes when Chester was here. Last night, mommy was sitting on the sofa with me and Simone and all of a sudden outside we hear this loud MROEEEWWWWWWWWWW. Neither me or Sisfur even bothered lifting our heads, we were just like, 'oh god, the outside kitties are TALKING again!' It wasn't an angry noise, just a loud talking noise. Mommy heard it a few more times, and then she went and opened the door. Chester was sitting on the towel we keep out there for them and Mr. Big was on the lower landing just calling out loudly. They didn't seem angry or scared of one another, BUT the food bowls were empty! Mommy looked at Mr. Big, he looked at her. Then he turned and scampered down the steps, not as scared, but not up for being lovied on or caught yet. Mommy was like 'guess I should put out some food before he comes back and yells at me again' This morning, all the nom noms were eaten, so he must have come back, but I guess he wasn't all that happy that his dinner was late last night. 'HEY! Nice Lady! Come feed me! I'm hungry!' hehehehe!
We also talked to the people at our vets office, they have a trap they will loan us so we can trap him and then bring him in to get all vetted when we are ready. Since we're getting our toothies cleaned right now though that's pretty much our cat money for the month. Mommy says we're VERY expensive to keep. I don't know why we're paying all this money so I can have a funny lopsided smile. What's up with that? I'd rather have had dinner last night and stayed at home to sleep today and kept the money. Let Mr. Big have the vet budget for this month I say!
