I am 5 years old today! Human forgot until now *bonks Human* I'm going to make sure she gives me extra treats.
Toaster turned 5 a few weeks ago. We don't know her exact birthday. She got a cool cardboard box to play in.
Want to know something neat? Amazon.com has a sort of separate web site where they make a small donation to the charity of your choice every time you shop :) It's called Amazon Smile :) Lots of well known charities are listed as well as local charities in many areas, like food banks. We chose the local SPCA :)
If you already have a Amazon.com account you can use that to log into Amazon Smile. Details about Amazon Smile is here.
You have to use the Amazon Smile web site to make a purchase in order for your charity to get the donation. Using the regular Amazon.com web site doesn't work. So update your web browser's bookmarked link :)
Feel free to spread the word about Amazon Smile on FB, Twitter, and other social media thingies! Amazon doesn't make Smile very well known *shrugs* It's a great way to make a free donation to a charity every time you shop :)
GoodShop.com is another similar web site but you can shop at many major online retailers such as Macy's, Gap, Babies R Us, Dell, etc.

... The 117th Boston Marathon was held under sunny skies and warm weather. Lots of people were enjoying watching the race. Then chaos ensued at the finish line when two bombs went off. Four days later more chaos ensued. In the end, after a long day of the city being in lock down, the suspect was captured and taken away.
Today there were lots of memorials to remember that day. The big library right at the finish line has a neat exhibit with all the stuff from the makeshift memorial that was set up in the days after the bombings.
Next Monday is the 118th Boston Marathon. Lots of secuity and restrictions will be in place to keep everyone safe. I hope crazy people stay far far away that day.

It looks like Catster might not be going away after all :-O :)
I guess we'll keep the new bb group for now just in case. We've tested it it out with some friends and it works pretty well. No fleas there :)
I have a new friend here on Catster :) His name is Mozart and he's an Aby, too. But the coolest thing about him is that he's also from Fairbanks Farm :) He was born way after I was and we don't have the same parents but it's neat to be friends with another Fairbanks Farm Aby :)
Mozart told me that the breeder of Fairbanks Farm passed away last year :( We haven't been in contact with the breeder in a long time so it was a shock to hear :( Mozart says that a person took the Abys and I guess is working with a rescue to find them new homes. Another person took the doggies (collies) to a big ranch in Colorado. I'm glad that the Abys and doggies were able to find a temporary new home until they find their forever homes.
We were able to find the archieved web site for Fairbanks Farm and had fun looking back at the pages, even though all of the pictures are gone now. I wish there was a way to see the pictures again. Pictures of my parents were on the web site.
