Dear Anony mouse

Dear Anony mouse, you are the pawsomest there is! Top Cat extraordinaire! Thank you for our furry wonderful gift. We were not expecting that and certainly we were not hinting for it either! I hope you all know that. We just wanted to let everyone know we'd still be here but our pages might look like we weren't because our Plus Membership was running out tomorrow. And our dumb dumb mommy forgot to put the green stuff (NO not salad) aside for it. We panicked when we saw that because I don't know what happens to all of our pictures and everything when the Plus thingy runs out. We would have had to start alllll over again! That would not have been fun at all!

This makes 2 years in a row someone bought our membership for us. Last year it was Lucy, Leo & Charlie's momma. Pawsomest gift EVER! We kinda feel bad, we're not cheap, believe me. Mom would buy EVERYONE a plus membership, zealies, food, medicine, anything you needed, if we were rich. But we are not even close, not by a long shot. So we offer up our hearts, love, support, friendship, purrs, hugs, headbonks, all that stuff. We have endless supplies of that and we are absolutely thrilled to be able to share those.

Do you know last week, momma joined another forum only cause they were linking to our website. She looked at the thread and found there were numerous kitties with IBD. So she said, "well, okay, just to see if I can help". PPPFFFFSSST! HISSSSS, MEOW! Talk about catty and crazy! You had to jump through big time hoops to even post anything every single time! And mom wasn't even on there 2 hours when a moderator wrote her and very nastily said, "you'll have to remove your url from your page because of the donation button on your site, or remove the donation button itself!"

Exsqueeze me??? Mom was like "I don't think so!" And what would be the point of us being on there trying to help if we can't give people our website address so they can read our information? That's stupid! The button is very tiny and mom has been paying for this site out of her pocket all herself for 3 years. She didn't even want to put one up there at all. But so many of our good friends wanted badly to help with the site cost that momma said okay, we'll gladly accept the help of wonderful people.

Needless to say, we quit that site that same day and it's a darned shame that we can't help other kitties who need it because those moderators are power hungry. It's nuts! Anyways, didn't mean to go off on a tangent. It's just not right. But here on Catster, regardless of these furry awful fleas that seem to pop up every couple of months, we're able to do what we set out to do. Help other kitties. AND have the best fun and the bestest furriends besides that. Icing on the catnip cake.

I guess sometimes we all need a reminder of how great we have it here. Even with the little stuff that gets annoying, we can deal. So thank you Anony Mouse!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!

Luv Lacey, Finney, angel Alex and of course mommy Lisa
XXXOOO

Hi Ingen! Thank you so much sweetie! We'll be having more parties soon I think. As the holidays come up. Maybe we'll have a Halloweenie pawty! Oooh, that would be fun wouldn't it?

Oh these fleas are horrible. We miss Blizz and furmily. Ingen how's it going with Novi? Are you doing any better with him?

You're absolutely right!! We have a camaraderie on Catster that is unique. We never expected that we would make such caring and loyal furriends on the day we joined. Efurbuddy please think back to the day you joined Catster. What did you expect from this site?
At the time, I was studying for certification in Feline Emergency Care. I was studying breeds, and Catster had a breed game where I could quiz myself. Then I saw that you could make a page for your cat, and I thought that was pretty cute. That's all. I really had no idea how much I would get from being a member. It took 3 months of just checking things out and commenting on others' diaries before I got Plus. The rewards in furriendship, empathy, compassion are great.
I thank efurbuddy for reaching thru your computers to embrace others!!
And a big YAY for a nonny mouse!! Even MICE are furriends on Catster!! Luv, Tink

Hmmmm, how it goin wif Novi? Well, when I's ou'side an he inside, I likes to play pawsies wif him unner a door. I's not jus' sittin ona landin no more--I's back to lazin ona big bed. I not ready to plays er snuggles wif him yet but I watches him.

Jen think maybe she shoulda keeped Novi in "lock down" a lil longer so's I have time to get used to him. She let him out cuz he not skeered of me er lil Bear.

MOL, yes, even meeses are pawsome here on Catster. We know exact why we joined over a year ago. We joined in April of 2010 and the only reason was to help kitties with IBD. That's it. Mom had been on a forum for IBD when Alex was sick and when Alex died, they asked her to be a moderator. That didn't work out at all as most of the other mods were bossy and just wanted to control everything and gossip. Mom left there to start our website and stayed off of any forums at all. Then one of the people she'd made friends with on a pet loss support group kept showing us their catster page for their new kitten. Mom had it bookmarked and just kept looking around. Thought it was silly that us kitties had diaries and could talk. Imagine that!!!

But yup, by the time late July and August came around we really began to like it here and felt very welcomed and at home. We never expected any of this either. We really didn't at all. We loved everyone checking in during the hurricane and during the tornadoes and floods. We can keep an eye on each other and we saw that recently with you Tink!

We had a feeling you were okay and had evacuated but until we heard from you, we worried.

Ingen pawsies under the door is cool and that means you're coming around. I know you miss them Novi. I know your daddy is pretty mad he can't get on here. He tells us so! MOL.

That is why I will stay loyal to Catster. Yes I get aggrivated too - I am not on facebook, or any other forum - looked at a few, but nothing seemed as nice. I have gotten so much warmth, caring, & support no matter what I ask or post. I think about other kitties when I am not on, and worry bout them too. I just wish the tech issues would resolve a bit more, but nothing is perfect. I wished so much that I could afford to get the plus & give gifites etc, but taking care of Nana...well you all know how it is, I am not the only one hurting. Then a great kitty gave us the free plus membership - so very sweet. I just wish that so many others did not leave, as I miss them. ANd I bet it is them ANGRY BIRDS I keep hearing about. (no smart phone either, I am a dinosaur!)

September 14th 2011 at 1:08 pm

We don't have a smart phone Tigger. We can't afford that at all. That's so great a kitty gave you a plus membership too! See? How pawsome this place is. Yeah, I do wish the same thing about the tech issues. Some things are expected but all of these continued problems are driving kitties away. We miss them too. And guess what we are not on Facebook either! So see? You are not a dino. MOL.

I'm so happy you're all still here and that some super duper kind secret kitty family wanted to do something nice for you! That's just so great!

No smart phones, but mommy's Ipod is pretty darn smarts so we use that... again, it's really mine... I gots to stay in charge. I should get my own smart phone so I can update my business remotely where ever I want! Being a CEO is hard work!

Hi Kally Kat! Thank you sweetie! I can always tell it's you. See? We Catster kitties are all so distinctive and fun, we know each other well. Thank you Harley sweetheart, we feel the same about you too.

Winnie, Chester and Seybah's Mom gave us our first Plus membership and since that year we've been "giving it back."
But (MoL) we did not *do* this one.
I'm so heartened to see that that sweet, giving spirit of Catster still remains alive and well. (and I'm glad for your family Lacey)
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

September 14th 2011 at 8:58 pm

Me too Nuk! the Catster spirit really is so pawsome and never ceases to amaze us. Okay, so we're no closer to figuring out who done it. But that's okay. It doesn't matter. We love you all and whoever "done it", has made us furry happy.

Turns out we didn't even need to panic about it though and we feel silly. But oh well! We are silly kitties and it won't be the last time! MOL

September 14th 2011 at 9:38 pm

MOL! Meowmy read all the comments and almost furgot what we had dictated to her...
We too started out with furry tentative pages, and then at that time meowmy told pawppy that she thought it was silly (!) to put kitties in pictures and clothes...and will you pawlease look at us now??
And the dog-guy gets even more of 'the treatment'!

Meowmy has a dumb phone...and doesn't 'do' FB either...

We love being here, plus or non-plus...and Mr Anon E Mouse was so furry kind to his enemies; some cats! We thank him fur doing that fur you. He must have a furry benevolent mouse-mind-set!

Now if somefur, mouse or otherwise could just convince HQ to get out the heavy duty flea medicines, then we would all have so much more purrfect fun here!

Isn't it Jez? Very cool of some fur. Captain Pipo, we're with you! There's plenty of flea meds out there to stop this madness!

Passing on the Catster love is awesome! Glad you continue to get the benefits of plus (our favorite is the photo captions!) and it still brings a smile to mom's face in remembering your surprise last year!
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

September 15th 2011 at 11:33 am

It wasn't you again was it Lucy? We also love the photo captions and that's what we were really worried about losing! Can't see going back to a plain membership now and going without those.

September 15th 2011 at 1:50 pm

Oh, Lucy, Leo, Charlie and their Mommy are one of our most favfurite furmilies that we have made furriends with on Catster! And the best thing about Catster furriends, the good ones that you all are, is that we are unconditional and whether or not we has the money, zealies, anything, there is always the LOVE and that is the most important thing! And I think you guys give out so much help to other furmiles, so above and beyond that your gift membership is only a reward fur the love!!! Speaking of the IBD kitties site-we has been using it more lately fur Harrison! We are using the cottage cheese tip fur medicine and the blending the wet food up so it's not chunks fur him-SO HELPFUL! See! it's all from tha loves!
Purred by: Lacey (Catster Member)

September 15th 2011 at 2:15 pm

Thank you sweet girl! That's so pawsome that you're using the tips! Mommy forgot to put her latest tip for giving medicines on there too. Sooo much information all the time she gets confoosed! MOL
