It is so hard to believe that it was 15 years ago already that a scrawny, squirrel-ish looking little kitten looked at me and started meowing. She meowed and meowed and meowed and MEOWED! Until I picked her up. Then she purred and purred and purred, until I set her back down. Then she MEOWED and MEOWED and MEOWED, until I picked her back up again. Then she purred and purred and purred and PURRED.... But, I wasn’t going to take a kitten home, so I set her back down again: MEOW, MEOOOWWW!!! MEEEEOOOWW!!!! Then I picked her back up again, and never let go.

So we just learned the glorious news! The problem is that mom's been living under a rock, or something like that. She has been working 16-17 hr days for the last 2 1/2 weeks and it's not going to stop until after March 12. We had written in our diaries about going on "hiatus" but then the horrible announcement came and she let us be here as much as possible until it got too overwhelming for her. I say: HISSES--WHERE'S MY MOM!?!? I totally missed Valentine's Day, but then Mom didn't even get to see Dad so I can't feel too bad right? We are sooooo happy that Catster isn't shutting down. But, was are also cautious as any good kitty would be...they didn't give us much additional info did they? Paws crossed for the best. But one thing is very true--we rallied. We, my Catster family, rallied for what is right--our loving community with grand spirit and pride.

So momma went to the hooman pharmacy today to pick up my inhaler, which is where it has to come from. There's always a strange conversation, every new person wants to know "how do you get a cat to take an inhaler?" etc,. etc.,. it never seems to get old. Anyway, here was momma's conversation today:
(pronounced like the skinny actress,mom usually just says
yes these days.)
“What’s your address?”
“Yes, because it’s a cat and doesn’t have a date of birth.”
“She does have a date of birth--actually.”
“Oh! I see that 2-27-99! Wow she’s getting up there!”
(really mom, you didn’t smacky-paw her? Great “verification” btw)
“Yes. I can’t believe she’ll be 15 next month.”
(really mom? who’s side you on?)
“Time flies. Is that her on your credit card?”
“Yep, I spend most of my money on her, figured she might as well be on the card.”
(MOL, ok I like that.)
...sigh. Starting to wonder if any furiends will still be around by then, just days before “the date.” Mom and I don't like seeing the diaries that say “final diary” and such. We’re gonna stick around til the end.
