Arrival Story:
Mom had never had a pet and wanted to adopt a rescue kitty. She fell for a big orange fellow and adopted him. He made himself right at home. Unfortunately, he bit mom's 9 year old granddaughter really hard on the cheek the first week. It freaked mom and everyone else out. So mom took him back to the rescue group--she was crying all the way there and home and for days after. They did find him a good home though--one with no young kids. But having no experience with pets, mom was too scared to adopt another rescue kitty. So she did some research about kitties who are laid back and good around kids. Ragdolls looked like a good fit so mom got my brother and me when we were 10 weeks old. Mom loves us very much (she says she can't imagine life without us) but still feels bad about not adopting a rescue kitty. So almost all of her charitable contributions go to animal rescue groups.

Harley's Reflections

Samoa named us Dreamboats!!

February 3rd 2014 9:45 am
[ Leave A Comment | 5 people already have ]

My brothers and I are so honored and excited to be named Dreamboats by our beautiful friend, Samoa!! We have been doing the happy dance all morning and purring up a storm!! Concatulations to all our fellow Dreamboats!! Of course, EVERY kitty is a Dreamboat or a Dreamgirl forever and ever!!

All you Catster Plus members, be sure to check your zealie balance. Although we didn't think we would receive our monthly zealie allowance since we've noticed that some things are no longer happening (like emails about new pawmail and gifties), we did receive the allowance for February & plan to use up every single one to send some last prezzies. Even when the zealies are gone, the big hugz special prezzie is still free for everyone to send to old and new friends.

We have so enjoyed our time on Catster. We just wish we would have discovered it sooner, so we could have had more time with our wonderful friends. We haven't figured out where we might set up pages (our mom doesn't do Facebook, although she has been thinking about trying to set up a page for us). If we figure something out before the Community pages shut down, we will post it here. For anyone who would like to stay in touch, please send us a pawmail (mom is checking our account regularly since we no longer get notification) & our mom will send your mom or dad her email address.

Thank you again, dear Samoa, for the so-exciting Dreamboat honors!

We love you all forever!


I am a Daily Diary Pick....

Well, for catness sake, I am a DDP today. Thank you Catster folks.

Although I am so thankful for the honor, I am so very sad that the diary entry was about the closing of our beloved Community pages and the loss of everything that is enjoyed by so many thousands of kitties.

We wish the Say Media folks would figure out a way to save the site, but we don't hold out much hope, given that money seems to be the only thing that drives the world these days. It seems like charging a membership fee to everyone (not just Catster Plus) and maybe even a modest monthly fee would raise enough money to keep and maintain the Community pages. Our mom says she would pay & she bets thousands of other cat moms & cat dads would pay too. But they say they have considered everything, so guess it's just wishful thinking on our and our mom's part.

We've seen that some kitties are on or going to be on Facebook. Our mom isn't a fan of Facebook and doesn't have an account. But she is thinking about setting up a Facebook page for us, even though she understands that FB doesn't like pages set up for pets (another reason not to like FB). We also read that some kitties are going to cathugger.com. We are going to check that out and, if it looks promising, sign up.

We are going to miss checking in at Catster every day for our friends' special days and honors, and for honors for kitties we don't yet know. And giving prezzies is so much fun. Even though some of the magazine articles are interesting, mom says she doubts she will be going to the site often, if at all, just for the articles.

Until we meet again, we love you all and are so very grateful for your friendship.


Harley, Cody, Raj & their mom


What a sad day in Catsterland...

Oh dear...,

The week started out so great, with free cake and balloon gifties to send to all our friends--what a fun pawty it was! Then the sad news email message today that the Community pages are shutting down--no more kitty profiles, kitty pages, birthday celebrations, gotcha day celebrations, rainbow bridge day remembrances, or COTD, COTW, DOTD or DDP honors. No more pawmail. No more gifties. :-( Just the online magazine, which we enjoy, but it won't be the same without all the fun stuff.

We understand that a good thing cannot go on forever, especially when it is not a money maker. And we so appreciate that Catster even existed for us to participate in and enjoy. Thank you to those who made it possible.

We will so miss seeing all the photos, reading about other kitties' & their families' adventures, seeing the different pages, celebrating special days and honors, and even always hoping to get picked for an honor.

Guess we will use up the remainder of our zealies to send a few last presents!

We will miss you all so much.

Purrs and sandpaper kisses from Harley, Cody & Raj

And best wishes from their mom
