Just a small note

Hi every one.

If you remember, Mom had issues with my licking her in the face. She REALLY doesn't like it. Well, not much has changed. I still do it every time I get a chance. I have to lie on her chest and purr first; then when she drops her guard, I lick her face. I don't do it often so she doesn't know when I am going to strike!! She usually makes me move when I do it, so if I want to snuggle, I keep my tongue in my mouth. Have to keep her on her toes and active. After all she is a senior citizen. I just read over her shoulder that her high school class is having their 55th reunion. That's over half century!!

Well I'll sign off now and go plot some mischief.

This is MOM - I am so sad to hear about the demise of CATSTER and DOGSTER. We had a good run and I will miss all of our friends. If you want to send us an email address it to


I don't know what else to say except that I have loved this site for a number of years and found some wonderful people here. I have found a wonderful group of people and I am sad beyond measure that the owners don't feel the site is worth saving. I will miss all of you even I haven't been active this last year due to personal problems. Please keep a good thought for me and the cats. Right now I have to try to save our pages and diaries. Going to be a labor intensive project.

Can't write anymore right now.

Mom wants me to tell you about my latest break through. As our friends know, I am not a lap cat. Don't know why. Just am not.

Until today. I've been flirting with the idea of getting into Mom's lap for several months now, but haven't actually made it to sit for a while. This afternoon, I got onto Mom's lap and sat for abut 30 minutes. Then I curled up and went to sleep for another 30 minutes. Mom didn't try to pet me or anything because she was afraid she'd spook me. We shall see what we shall see; don't know if this was a fluke but Mom hopes not. I've been with her for over three years now.

This is Mom: I am happy beyond measuring about this development. Celebrate with us, please.

We haven't been very active recently. Mom has been very worried about Uncle but he's doing better right now. Mom feels better about his situation. Even though the cancer can't be cured, it is being managed to allow him to have the gift of precious time with his family. It's been 22 months since his diagnosis and in January of last year no one was betting on more than three months.

This post is to share some very wonderful news. I actually got in Mom's lap on my own. As most of my friends know, I have serious trust issues and haven't been a lap cat since I came to live with Mom over two years ago. I've let her pick me up and hold me for a brief time but then I want down.

Well when Mom came in from Uncle's this afternoon, her first order of business was to visit her litter box. While she was sitting there, I hopped up on her lap all by myself. She said something about "a belated birthday present". I sat there and sat there and sat there and snuggled and purred and Mom loved on me and loved on me.

I haven't done that again this evening but Mom's hopeful that this was the turning point. She likes lap sitting cats and snuggley cats and she's always hoped that I'd be one of those.

We wanted our Catster friends to share in our news before anyone else.

Mom has been fussing because the weather is so hot and humid now. She doesn't like for the temperature to get much over 75 degrees nor for the humidity to get higher than about 30%. She's miserable but she understands that that's the price she pays for living in South Carolina.

She gets out in the early morning and tries to work in the yard, catching up on stuff that needs to be done. After 5 p.m., she can do the lawn because she's moving and the lot is shady. Still not pleasant but not heat stroke either.

Every time she comes in to cool off, I run and jump on her to snuggle and rub noses. Just have to make sure she's warm enough. Sometimes she lets me stay and sometimes she just picks me up and moves me off her chest. Bugging Mom is so much fun.

Mom has not been home as much as we'd like for the past three weeks. Her uncle has been in the ICU since March 11 and passed away last night. She (and a lot of other people) has been there every day since March 11 to check on him.

Mom is very sad and quiet and hasn't completely dealt with this and she worries how it will affect her brother.

Mom finally caught up with our neighbor whose dog was killed in our drive. The neighbor lady is sad of course but she holds no hard feelings; accidents do happen. She is spending a lot of time with the remaining dog because he's very sad and they're making sure that he's on a leash or with one of them when he's outside.

It's been very warm here the last few days, in the upper sixties for highs and in the lower fifties for lows. Doesn't feel like January at all but the weather is supposed to change very soon and we expect Old Man Winter back again.

Mom was out for a while in the middle of the day; the family met up at an uncle's house and took lunch. Mom says that some of her best friends are actually family members.

When she got in about 4 p.m., she made sure we had eaten the food she left for us. Charley made sure to get cuddles; me, I'm being standoffish since she went out and left us.

The next door neighbor is setting up his fireworks but we're used to them and don't really pay very much attention. The windows are closed and we don't hear very much noise. He has a shooting range at the back of his property so we hear bangs often.

Our best wishes for every cat (and dog) to have a fantastic New Year.

Mom made Charley let me write the diary today. He's been hogging all the diary time and the DDP's.

We're looking forward to 2012. The old year has not been good to us but we're thankful for the good things that have happened.

Tomorrow afternoon, the family is getting together at Mom's uncle's house for an early celebration so everyone can be home and off the road before dark. None of the family are big party people.

I'm getting more loving by the day. And I'm beginning to not try to lick Mom's face (but if her attention is somewhere else, I get in a lick or two). I'm still not very big on being picked up or lap sitting; Mom hopes 2012 is the year I move on to those two activities.

Charley is his usual self: Bossy, snuggly with Mom, loves to cuddle under the blankets.

We hope everyone on Catster has a safe and happy New Year's celebration and a wonderful and healthy 2012!!!!
