Thanks HQ!

Since my last diary entry was not very complimentary towards HQ about all the comment activity on the Purr Board and how much it was slowing us down in locating new diary entries and photos from our furriends, I now feel obliged to thank Ted and HQ for taking it out.

Yes, it was an improvement from the first time it was introduced, and yes the comments were at least linking up to the correct pages, but I guess enough cats complained/gave feedback that they still didn’t like it, so HQ turned it off. You’ve got to admit that HQ listened to us, and they responded.

You know, it’s really easy to complain about things, and not enough pawple say thank you or show their appreciation when they really should. So Ted and HQ, I’d like to meow my thanks to you!

Love, Sammy


Oops, They Did It Again!

Remember when Catster introduced a new feature a couple of weeks ago where you could see every single comment of every single furriend on every single diary entry and every single photo? Oh yeah, and when you commented on a diary, that diary entry would end up on your page making it look like you wrote it, causing mass confusion?

Yes, it’s happening again my furriends. I thought enough kitties meowed their discontent to HQ about this feature so that we would never see it again. It's baaaaaack...

I hope we can still find our furriends' recent diary entries...

Concerned, Sammy


Cat Politics

Lately there’s been a bit of disharmony in our house. My big brofur, Luke, has been a big grumpy monster this week and has been hissing at me. Mom’s not sure if her being gone last week may have upset him. He may be a big boy, but he’s kind of a baby. He likes constant attention and reassurance from Mom and Dad. Don’t tell him I told you, he’d hiss at me for telling you this – MOL!

Luke and I are both alpha kitties by nature, but Luke has always tried to assert the upper paw in our house. I’m an easy going mellow kind of guy, so I usually back down and let him maintain his Top Cat status. Besides he’s bigger and older than me and could kick my floofy orangie bottom if it really came down to it. But some day I may outweigh him. Mom’s kind of worried about that. It’s very distressing to her, she just wants all of us to get along. She gets upset when she sees or hears Luke picking on me. He’s not violent or anything like that, he just hisses or makes threatening sounds towards me if I get a little too close to him.

Daddy calls it Cat Politics. He says we will work out the balance of power amongst ourselves and Mom shouldn’t worry about it. Mom’s not so sure about that – has any fur got any advice for us?

Love, Sammy


A Note From My Mom

I know this is Sammy’s diary, but I felt I had to write something tonight. Sammy is home with his Dad and fur siblings right now while Mom is traveling this week for work. I have limited internet access, but I’m able to receive messages on my Blackberry. When I received an e-mail from Catster this morning that my sweet Sammy was Cat of the Day, I was ecstatic, but a little sad, too.

I was happy because I really love Catster and have made so many nice friends here - a few I’ve been fortunate enough to meet in person. We have so much fun and have received so much love and support from so many kitties and their humans on this site that it has become almost a daily habit to check in and see what’s going on with our pals.

Many of our kitty friends are like family members to us, and we truly get excited for them when they celebrate a birthday, receive a Catster honor, or have something good happen in their lives. We also cry with them when a kitty is sick or has gone to the Bridge. We know they would be there for us, too, if we needed their support.

I’m sad because I’m not home with my fur kids right now. I miss them so much! Yesterday it was Luke and Tully’s Gotcha Day and the looks on their sweet faces when I walked out the front door with my suitcase was enough to make me cry. I could not explain this to my work colleagues but I know my Catster friends understand this completely. Catster is the only place where I can act silly, have fun, and freely express the love I feel for my fur kids because you all understand that feeling as well as I do.

Thank you for all the nice comments, pawmails, and gifts for Sammy. I am missing my little orangie boy so much right now, not to mention Luke, Tully, and Natasha. Thank you again for your kindness – I am really missing my Catster time this week. Hope to catch up with you all at the end of the week.

Love and hugs, Sammy’s Mom


Yeowww Pumpkin!

Boy oh boy, you know a toy is going to be good when you get a whiff of it through the delivery box and you want to rip it open with your bare paws! Mommy picked up the UPS box from our front porch tonight and brought it inside the house. Tully and I started rubbing up against it…what could be inside?

OMC! It’s a Yeowww Pumpkin! I love it! I have been licking it and playing with it since it set foot inside my house. I’m in Pumpkin Ecstasy! We received an assortment of Yeowww catnip toys, a banana, a cigar, a candy cane, and my purrsonal favorite…the pumpkin!

Love My Yeowww Pumpkin, Sammy


I Don't Want to Be a Pumpkin!

I’m getting a little worried. I’ll be spending my first Howloween in my furever home purrty soon. I was just an itty bitty kitten last year at Howloween, so I don’t know much about it.

Luke and Tully told me that Mom dressed them in costumes last year and took pictures of them. Tully has a Pumpkin hat and Luke has a Rooster hat. They were not furry happy about it.

I may be orange, but I don’t want to be a pumpkin!

Worried purrs, Sammy


My First Birthday

I knew something was up today when Mommy woke up this morning and gave me extra loves and kisses. She kissed me on my head, kissed me on my tummy, and she wouldn’t stop until I finally had to squirm away from her and meow “enough already”! She can really get carried away with the smooches if you let her – sheesh!

I had to wait all day for Mommy to come home from work and log in to Catster…and wowza meowza, my page and Natasha’s were overflowing with birthday wishes, presents, and special treats! Did I ever tell you that we have the best friends ever on Catster? You all are so sweet and kind-hearted and we love each and every one of you! Thank you everyfur for all the love and good wishes - I pawmise to send a personal thank you later to all my pals who stopped by.

So I am one year old today, that’s what it says on my adoption certificate anyway. Does that mean I am a Man Cat now? I hope being a Man Cat means I can still run around the house in the middle of the night, jump on top of the tables, shred paper when I feel like it , and play like a silly little kitten. I don’t ever want to grow up!

Love, Sammy


KCK Kitty of the Week!

What a pawsome surprise I received when Mom checked her pawmails this morning – I am KCK's Kitty of the Week!

Kewlest Catster Kitties is one of the friendliest and most fun groups on Catster. Some of the nicest kitties you will ever meet hang out there. Thank you to the kewl friends in this group who are helping me celebrate!

I’m helping Mom and Dad get ready for a backyard BBQ this afternoon. My two Grammies will be here and some of Mom and Dad’s friends. We have this kewl new cat fence in our backyard so Mom has been letting us outside to play. It’s been great! Luke, Tully, Natasha and I run around the yard and chase each other and have so much fun. I get lots of leaves and twigs stuck in my fluffy pants so Mom has to brush me before I go back in the house – MOL!

Have a great weekend everyfur!

Love, Sammy


Weekend Chores

August 22nd 2010 9:05 am
[ Leave A Comment | 7 people already have ]

I’ve been a furry busy kitty this weekend helping Mom with her chores. Yesterday Mom changed the sheets on her bed - I just love to help her with that!

As soon as she starts stripping the old sheets off, I jump up on top of the bed and try to hide underneath the sheets. Every time the sheets move, I attack them! This goes on for several minutes and sometimes Mom gets impatient and picks me up and puts me on the floor, but I always jump right back up again to save Mom from the Monster inside the sheets.

When she finally does remove the old sheets off the bed, she then takes out the clean set of folded sheets. I love this part! She shakes the sheets out to unfold them and tries to lay them flat on the bed. I hide underneath the fitted sheet so there is a big lump of Sammy underneath the sheet, making it impossible for Mom to put it over the mattress. Mom had the nerve yesterday to put me outside the bedroom and close the door on me so she could finish making the bed – humph! I scratched and scratched on the door until she let me back inside. Boy was I mad!

Why doesn’t Mom appurrciate it more when I try to help her with her chores?

Puzzled purrs, Sammy


Catch Me If You Can

Oh boy, did I have some fun last night! Normally we are indoor kitties and we only go outside if we are on a leash or in our stroller. But now that there are four of us, it’s been harder for Mom to take all of us outside at the same time. We usually have to take turns, 2 cats at a time.

Last night the weather was really nice and Mom and Dad were both home to supervise us, so they let all four of us out in the backyard at the same time. We’ve done this before and usually we behave ourselves, but not this time.

It all started to go downhill when Tully decided to jump over our side of the fence into the neighbors’ backyard. Well, he jumped back over to our side on his own before Mom could even catch him, but she decided we all needed to go back inside the house after that happened. Well, I decided I wasn’t ready to go back inside just yet. I love being in my backyard and I love chasing the bugs – it is so much fun – so I RAN!

I ran behind the bushes, I ran in back of the shed, I ran all over the yard. Mommy and Daddy were both chasing me around so I thought it must be a game. That got me running around even more. That’s when Mommy decided to use her “Mommy Psychology” thinking cap and figured that I was running around so much because I was being chased. You know, the more something chases you, the more you run – MOL!

She told Daddy to go back inside the house with the other cats while Mommy stayed outside. She sat quietly for a few minutes on the patio waiting for me to calm down. That’s when she came over to the bushes, grabbed me, and brought me inside the house.

It sure was fun while it lasted!
