Yippeeeeeeeeeeee...it is March 3 and the Catster Community is still here! And there are free Mardi Gras gifties for kitties to send to their furiends. What a furabulous way to start off a new week!
We Catifornia kitties finally got some real rain, thank goodness. But we worried about kitties and other animals that don't have homes and were outside in the weather. We didn't see any in our neighborhood, but we know there were some outside in other areas. We stayed inside, all dry & warm, and watched the rain & blowing trees through the windows and slider. Mom loves having some "weather" so she was a happy camper.
We keep reading about all the cold and snow in so many parts of the U.S. Mom lived in a cold place (North Dakota) for 1-1/2 winters when she was a kid & she says it is a real challenge to deal with tons of snow and such cold temperatures. We sure hope spring comes soon for all of you who live in those cold places.
Like our furiends, we sure are looking forward to more information from the Catster folks about how the Community pages will work in the new "regime." We are sure hoping we will still have at least most of the features we have now (and that they will work better, with no fleas).
Happy Mardi Gras & Happy March 2014 to everyone! Purrs..........

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!

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
