They say it's my birthday, and I'm gonna have a good time! Thanks to all my pals who are celebrating my big day - I sure don't feel nine years old!
This is probably going to be my last diary entry. It hurts really bad to even have to say that. Our family has been on Catster for 7+ years - in fact, our 8th anniversary will be a couple of weeks after Catster closes its doors.
In those 8 years we have met so many pawsome friends and shared great times and very sad times with them. It has made us closer because we all love each other. You can't find that kind of support and love just anywhere.
Newman told me that Calvin told him it is called the Catster magic. I'm not a magician, but I think the magic that has been part of this community for 10 years is something that can't be taken away.
Say Media might delete our pages, but that magic and those memories will live in our hearts forever. They can't destroy the magic!
We would love for a real magician to come in and sweep his magic wand across the community so that it stays forever. While we're hopeful, it is probably not going to happen.
So, we wish all good things to our cat and dog friends. We hope to stay in touch with you.
Gleek, Newman, and I are on Cat Scouts. We're also on Facebook (www.facebook/strickcats) so we hope to see you in one of those two places.
There are many cat parents over on Facebook, so if you're Mom/Dad are not there, please tell them that the community of friends over there is supportive and loving too - although they're not cats, so they don't take as many naps!
Our Mawmee is Laura Strickland, and she can be found on Facebook at facebook/catstermom. Yep, she is Catstermom, and she said that will never change.
Take care, and remember that we love you all!
Happiest of Birthday wishes to YOU, Inky!
We are having the same feelings as your Mawmee, only we have been here about half the time as her...see how wonderfur that magic was/is?
Well, we have mewed our whereabouts to you...and to many others!
Pipo & Minko
Thank you Inky for putting it so well. Calvin is indeed a wise angel cat and we thank him for his wisdom too.
I hear ya, Ink. Dad's been on Caster even before he got cats. You've been one of our favorite families. We love how you change your profile pages and names with the seasons and holidays. We'll miss you. You're family has been great to us. What happened with Vivian helped Dad not only take in a new kitty for a while but helped him know it was time to find her a new home and comes to terms with it. (The kitty is doing great BTW, she needed to be a single kitty.)
Happy birthday and good luck!
Happy birthday! We're glad we found y'all on FB.
Happy birthday Inky! We have been on catster a long time too. Your family helped make it more fun. We will keep an eye out on FB to see where folks go. I know our moms are furiends on FB,but I want us to keep in touch too :)
Oh boy did we have good times... and sad times too. Your family did so much to make Catster fun and was always supportive and helpful to every fur. Love you guys. Always will. We'll always remember. Facebook is not the same. This place was special. It was magical, yes.
I am sorry that we missed your birthday. Happy belated birthday. We had another family celebration to deal with yesterday which took up all of Mom's time.
Hugs and kisses,
Happy Birthday Inky! We hope your day was the greatest. We're not getting the notifications from Catster about our friend's events, so even though we sniffed around here yesterday, we didn't see this 'cause of the stoopid fleas. Anyway, hope your day was super!
Oh Inky! It is sad! Happy ourrrrday though! We will nevfur fur get all our wonderful furrriends and are so happy to keep you guys as our furrriends! We tried to upload the ribbon but it didn't work, so we are gonna try tomorrow again. Friends furrr ever and that Magic will keep us all together!
