Many of our friends have that next to their name. Does that mean for a little while they are not going to come around catster?? or they have left catsterland??? or maybe they are just to busy to visit at this time.

Does any one know what that means? Is catster dieing? WE miss so many of our friends. We are not away from catster we are here to stay but it has gotten so lonely that I have set up a face book page in addition to my catster page os if you are there and are also here, check it out I am "Moe Mightymoe" over on facebook. We do not care for facebook but so many friends are missing we hope we can find them there. WE still come here everyday but so many times no one is around and it is lonely even the groups seem to be silent.....
Please know we are not leaving we just want to try and find our friends that are missing from here.

There are a lot of kitties on FB...burt we are not among them...and do not plan to be either, MOL! If we would 'be away' we would make a diary about furs wouldn't feel abandoned..that wouldn't be a nice way to treat furends...but kitties do like to get into their hidey holes now and then, meowmy has learned to be patient...then they often come out all by themselves!

Purrs! now we are going sway fur the night to let meowmy go to sleep! Purrs!

Good questions! I have also noticed cats have put "away" next to their name but then you still see them on the site giving giftees and posting in diaries so not sure why members are doing this. I don't think there is any need as we are all away from catster at certain times. I can see if you are going to be truly totally away from catster for a month or longer it might make sense but like WeBeesSiamese commented it would be nice to let furriends know why the "away" status.

Alot of cats are more busy during the summer and catster is usually slower during the summer season. Always has been that way.

We aren't going on FB, catster is where we play.

Oh my friends I do not know if the comment issues has been fixed we still are not gettting notifications it is so good to hear from you. We are night owls and now night has turned into 2 a.m. so we are finally off to bed. We used to post at this time and no less than 10 kitties (alot for us late at night) came to play....I do hope the silence here is just all about the summer months this is only our 2nd summer here but I do seem to recall there were not many kitties here last summer. We love you Webees and Zack. IT would nice if a kitty is truly away to let friends know what that means. Like Webees did on vacation and like Miss Kaci did in her diary.

Also Fearless, Samhain and Sleepers... their pawrents are very busy and they had explained beforehand, which was also very considerate, of why they are away. Once in a great while they pop in real quick but they have been away for awhile. We miss them but I am sure they will be back.

Some catsters seem to put away by their names every couple of weeks back and forth. Not sure why because I still see them on catster. Maybe it means they dont want to be bothered by others with pmails etc.

No, comment notifications are still not working. Maybe this week will be the lucky week!

Goodnite and Happy July!!

Thanks, Zack, for giving us backup! ;) Anyway - in the past we'd seen the "Away from Catster" handle after names and had asked furs about it. They told us about the vacation idea, and we thought even though we weren't going on vacation, it wasn't a bad idea to give furs a heads-up that we wouldn't be around as much so they wouldn't worry about us. We still are only going to be on here every once and awhile, but in your honor, MoeMoe, we've changed our profiles! Sleeper's torn ligament seems to be greatly recovered already, though, so she might have to change hers back soon...:) BTW, Zack - you or Zoey heard from TaoTao lately?

Hi Tiny Moe! Tully and I recently joined FB, too. We prefer Catster, but so many friends have left and play over on FB now. We'll try it out and see how it goes. Summer is usually more quiet around here. Hopefully some of our friends will come back to play again after summer vacations are over.

Mom sometimes check up on Facebook, but we don't much care for it.

Finney and Lacey's mom said she is just taking a little break, all the sadness and stress from life have made it difficult.

We're not going anywhere. When you see it slow with us, Moe Moe, it's only because Mom works full time, and is in a very demanding grad school program right now 2 nights a week and way too many assignments.

We love you and your family. We know also that Summer time is a busy time for many. Vacations, some folks working more hours, and some working 2 jobs.

we are right here, and will continue to be, Ceiling cat willing.

I usually think it is because they are on vacation or plan to be very don't expect much communication from them.

It is very hard to keep up without the comments. It has been 3 weeks that this has been going on. Even the group posting notifications aren’t working. It would be nice to get an update from HQ on the progress of what is going on. They are losing many Catsters and it makes us very sad. Facebook can not replace the Catster Community.

Maybe if things start to get fixed, then our friends will come back.

We are here too and yes sometimes we are not on because Mom has her own pet sitting business and she gets very busy like summer time. We are no leaving, we are here to stay and we are not on FB and have no plans to go there.

Yes we need to have a community party to get this place alive again, we too see that at times there is no one sad.

So those of us that are here lets figure out something and get this place rocking again.

If we are away sometimes Mom let our friends know in our diaries...

Welcome back Samhain!!

I did find out this weekend that Tao is still on Facebook! My cat uncle asked if I had heard from Tao and I said no, not for a long time. Uncle said that Tao has posted a few times on his FB page and so Uncle left Tao a message for me and Tao sent a message back to me thru Uncle. Tao said I should join FB to keep in touch with him but we are not joining FB. Catster is where it is at for Zack and I. I have no idea why Tao never returned or left a message for his friends here on catster or if he is ever coming back!

For us it is different, we don't mind catster not being real busy. We like to just check in with our friends and read their diaries to see what they are up to but don't like to spend alot of time on catster or any site. There is so much else to do! But for those that want more action on catster, a pawty is a good idea.

Great that Catster brought back the American Flag Rosettes for 4th of July! Now lets hope comments are fixed next!

Yeah, I think kitties do it when they know they won't be able to follow up much on Catster. You know, they can visit and check some diaries, send some gifts, but they might miss a lot and don't want their friends to think they are ignoring them. Usually they come back. I hopes they always do. I loves my friends too much to lose them! We ourselves aren't really on facebook. I gots the Happy River Dances page mommy lets me run and then she has her own page which she's had WAY back from when facebook started and she was in college. There are usually a lot of Rivie pictures to be found there!

I have to say that I am glad to hear that I am not the oly FB hold-out. I don't think I want all that comes with FB. I love Catster. Maybe not all the time, but I don't care about the main page - I care about all my friends. We haven't posted too much in our diaries cause it has been real busy, and we didn't have much to say recently. I do admit it is so sad to come on & see that we have lost another friend to the Rainbow Bridge. But I keep remembering back to when we first came here & were helped & found new pals. I want to be here to do that same thing for someone else. And to keep up with all our friends. We think of you all the time, and we don't wanna lose anyone else!! PURRS FOR PALS!!!

I don't know what the away from Catster really means either. I sure don't like seeing it on my friend's names. I love Catster and am not leaving. We're here to stay thru the good and the bad. Let's make this a pawsome place again.

Hi Tiny Moe! We put *away* next to our names because we aren't here consistently. Mommy is dealing with depression and there are stretches of time when she doesn't get on the computer. Sometimes we might be here a few days in a row but we're not very active when we do come on. It may be days or a week or so before we pop in again and we don't want anyone to worry about us, think we've disappeared or left for good or be upset because we don't post in diaries or if we miss something important, such as birthdays, gotcha days, etc. We aren't on FB either and won't be joining FB -- we love Catster and all our friends here and plan to come back and be active soon. We didn't mean to upset you or any of our friends and apologize if we did upset you or made you sad. Maybe we should remove *away* from next to our names and hope you all understand and don't worry if we're not around for awhile.

Kaci & family

Hi everyone it is good to hear from so many friends. Kaci my sweet friend we send you a pawmail we had read in your diary why you were away, we miss you. Samhain it is so good to hear you an your family are kinda back, we had read that your diary too so we knew why you were away. We understand it somewhat better now what "away from catster" means, and also that summer time means hoomans are more busy. We just really got so settled in here and everyone started going away. My breath is good and I bath often MOL. FB is ok but catster is so much more fun. on face book it is not as much fun to "talk like a cat"

It does seem awfully quiet around here. We're not on FB and have no plans to go there. Glad we are not the only ones not FB fans.
