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
Hi! Hi to the rest of your furmily, too. Not making pics...too busy trying to copy all our pages...but concats nevfurtheless!
Hey we are here:
And we like it a lot. We know so many furs there, from here.
Its easy to join, and free...you might have to wait a bit to 'get approved', but there are real people running that forum, Jezebel being the well known kitty from one of the admin furmilies.
Just saying...well, mewing, MOL!
Hi there WBS. Thank you for the congrats & thanks for the info on the forum. Our mom is going to check it out!
(( ♥ ))
Concats on your honor! Mom doesn't have FB either--she has always resisted...but she set up a page for us, and we have found tons of other catster refugees there. It's not like this, but it's something to keep in touch with.
Thank you, Calista, for the concats! We are purring to mom to set up a FB page for us...hope to see you there!
Hi Harley! We've joined the FB crowd for lack of another place to go right now, but we are hoping that another cat site opens up soon. Even with all its problems, we'd take Catster over FB any day. Catster still has some great features that other sites don't have, not to mention all the great kitties we've met here.
Concats on your DDP today and please keep in touch!
Thanks for the concats, Tully! We are going to post in our diaries where we will be once mom figures it out, as we are hoping to stay in contact with as many of our wonderful Catster friends as possible.

Thank for you the concats, Harley-D2! We will check out showmecats.com. Thanks for the tip! Purrs to you, beautiful kitty.........
Concats on the Diary Pick! We're hanging out with some of our Catster pals via Mom's Facebook account. We're still trying to figure out if/where we would go next.
Thanks for the concats, Dainerys! Yep, we are trying to figure out where to go too...it's all so sad. We have loved our time here on Catster.
