Wowee, what a way to end the month of May!
I hope everycat is thrilled we have our pictures back! Now catsterland is filled with color again!
Buddie and I will skip paw in paw to our favorite place and eat you know what!
Three zealies to the first cat who gets the place and menu correct!
Today we're going to peek in on DASHIELL to see how he's doing after his eye surgery. He is eating now and that's good but he need to drink water too, so please purr for Dashy.
I'm grateful for my mangoman furhusband Buddie who is always by my side. There is no better friend to anycat who needs comforting.

Oh no! Not again!
Send the CIA to get that guy so he stops messing with our catsterland!
I'm sorry we didn't respond to some of our pawmails and honors but we couldn't get into Catster. Pictures are not showing up and we can't seem to accept friend requests but at least we can log on in a roundabout way so that means the tech people are making progress. From Heaven, Buddie and I look down at Earth and wonder why some people enjoy wreaking havoc. Go wreak somewhere else I say!
We're glad that MAXWELL THOMAS has a page again. He lived with mom before me, I knew him for only two months before his little heart gave out. Max was a sweet cat and mom's soul mate. She couldn't look at his picture for three years without sobbing.
We're purring for DASHIELL who is having surgery next Wednesday to remove his bad eye.
Now I must run and put on my new summer frock so that Buddie and I can mosey on down to the Heavenly Hash Diner for, you know what! First person to give the right answer wins a whole entire zealie! What are Buddie and I having for breakfast?

I've been asked to give the history of the Get Well Purr List and Thread.
It started a long time ago.
The day was December 26, 2006. "The Get Well Purr List", or the "Purr List" for short, was created. I thought it would be a good way to consolidate purr requests in the Get Well Soon Forum. There were a lot of requests and I figured a little bit of organization might make it easier to give purrs and support.
The Purr List grew and grew and it was longer and longer and often mom and I worked 10 hours a week to keep it updated, to post comments, to send notes to sick cats, and to help cats with similar ailments network. It was a labor of love. It was for the love of Catsters everywhere.
When I joined Catster in 2004 there were about 4,500 cats here. I figure there were about 35,000 cats here when I started the purr list. Now there are over 245,000 cats!
There are over 8,000 posts in the Original (now closed) Get Well Purr List
After 3 years, 2 months, 11 days and 8,238 posts, on March 4, 2010 I turned over the Purr List to Boxie Brown. My heart ached from worrying and purring for so many wonderful cats, it literally gave mom chest pains. Boxie started a new thread and named it "The New Home of Hazel Lucy's List for Kitties in Need of Purrs, in honor of me. I was deeply humbled by the honor.
I know it helped cats get purrs of love and support, and helped them feel connected to the Catster family. There was tremendous family feeling throughout catsterland.
love, love always,

Today is the day mom chose as my birthday when she joined Catster all those years ago. This is my third birthday since coming to the bridge. Mom is really feeling it. Since she's moving photos from one old computer to another old computer, she's been looking at hundreds of my photos. Every photo is a pang of joy and a little stab of longing.
Last week I visited mom in dreams two nights in a row. It was glorious being together!
We had fun and laughed and snuggled.
I'm really glad the nasty botpeople have bitten the dust, for good I hope. And I am eager to meet the new partner, just as everyone is!
Can you guess what BUDDIE and I are having to eat today and where? 5 zealies to the first cat who guesses correctly!
I love everyone!

Everyone at the Bridge is happy today for HAZEL MAZEL (Mazie)!
Lots of us worked hard to get her to Purrsville, but really, it wasn't hard at all, we just put the thought into my mom's head and into Mazie's first mom's head and they did the rest. The once scared kitty is now a contented, very affectionate cat who dotes on her mom, my mom!
We're all very proud of her progress. She just opened up with love and patience and gentleness.
And she even wore a hat a few months ago, an HL hat! Believe it or not!

That Mazie, she sure must have something!
DDP again, and Buddie and I are thrilled for her!
Coming up on her 3rd full year in Purrsville too.
We couldn't be more pleased with her progress!

Cat and Dog FOOD - MELAMINE again found in pet food.
(Melamine and cyanuric acid were found to be the deadly cause of the largest pet food recall in history in 2007.)
MELAMINE FOUND IN CAT & DOG FOOD AGAIN
Here are affected pet foods
The U.S. manufactured pet foods the Consumer Council found to contain aflatoxin B1 are:
1. Purina One Smart Blend Chicken & Rice Formula Adult Dog Food
2. Hill’s Science Diet Adult Optimal Care Cat Food
3. AvoDerm Natural Chicken & Herring Meal Formula Adult Cat Food
Purina told the South China Morning Post the carcinogen was an “unavoidable natural contaminant” found in grains such as corn, barley and rice. AvoDerm, stated “it had since replaced the corn in its formula that was believed to be the source of the carcinogen.”
And then the bad news continues. The Consumer Council reported their testing found melamine in:
4. Solid Gold Adult Dog Food
5. Iams Chicken Cat Food
And cyanuric acid was found in:
6. Purina Pro Plan Salmon Cat Food,/
Melamine and cyanuric acid were found to be the deadly cause of the largest pet food recall in history in 2007.
