So much is going on, I don't know where to begin!
First of all, with my increased workload getting everything fixed, it is becoming more difficult for me to post updates in all of the Dogster and Catster Community groups on Facebook. So please, if you haven't already, join me in the All Paws Bulletin group on Dogster. This group is the best place to get updates and information from HQ.
If we want to keep the sites up and running, we need to bring traffic to the Community areas of Dogster and Catster! Don't forget to take a break from Facebook and come home to Dogster!
As you know, i-5 Publishing has put together a PAWESOME group of folks to help us get all of our Community features up and running. This is how I am spending most of my time right now. Navigating through more than 60 unresolved tickets (and I have more to add) is a full-time job! :)) I looked at the tickets today, and an engineer is already working on the Bio Field issue that has kept us from decorating our pages!
The sites seem to be running a bit faster, but I am still getting served 503 errors on occasion. I find that if I just reload the page, I am able to gain access. This issue, among others, IS being addressed, so bear with us.
Plus subscription and renewal, as well as the ability to purchase Zealies, have been restored.
And... have y'all noticed that Forum and Group posts are updating in real time again? I have also been able to upload photos!
YAY i-5 Publishing!
I'm also submitting tickets to the tech team for the Diary issue, and the Log in problem this week.
We've just recently completed the migration of our email from SAY Media to i-5 Publishing, so it shouldn't be long before we're back to the 24-72 hour window Support response time. Watch Dog/Cat is working his tail off to respond to all of your inquiries as soon as possible.

We're getting there!

It's the BIGGEST ANNOUNCEMENT in Catsterland history!
No, not I-5 the interstate highway, it's our new owner, they bought Catster and Dogster!!!
So now we celebrate and then we ask, who the heck are they. Can we trust 'em, will they love us, will they take tender care of us? Will they preserve all the informative stuff, all the fun stuff like before? I bet they will, and I'm not one to bet.
NEW OWNER CATSTER ANNOUNCEMENT!!!
So is the link that shows you their sites/brands.

I'm a DDP and it shows too!
Progress can be slow and painful but please don't give up on Catsterland.
Each and every one of you is important to the community.
So Mazie, I tell you, that girl is sure coming along.
She is such a pretty, well-behaved cat. And no one tests and approves Tranquility Blankets like Mazie!!! She very daintily puts her paw on a blanket, then looks up at mom and nods that it passed inspection! MOL! Did you know that she put the blankets on sale for July? She did. All by herself!
Must run now, Buddie and I are going to the mountains for a few days. It will be days of cool breezes and nights of roasted marshmallows by the fire pit.
love and joy,

No, it's not about the new partner, though I wish I could say. I know nothing!
Mazie has been testing and approving for weeks and she decided we're having a Summer Tranquility Sale! We're on Facebook:
and if you want the photos of the blankets, please message me with your email. Having some problems with photobucket.
happy Hazel Lucy

Hey I'm finally in after ages trying!
Poor catsterland is hard to love this summer, what with the move to a new server, the old platform falling apart, and the bad bad meanie who is still attacking for ransom!
Thank you for the DDP, random generator, um, Diary Gal.
I sure hope Catster and Dogster communities will be safe with our new partner, hey is there really a new partner or did I dream it!

Yep, it's warm. Thank Cat there are no fleas in my house!
But poor Catster, fleas everywhere all day long. Some are really BIG fleas too!
It's really hard to do stuff, sort of hit or miss, but I'm hopeful.
Meanwhile my beloved furhusband mangoman Buddie has a lovely day planned for us. We are going berry-picking with our neighbors! Then we'll take our haul to the Heavenly Hash Cafe where the chef will make deep-fried peanut butter waffles, and in the center of the rolled up deliciousness will be our berries! Can you say YUM!
tiny gumdrop and happy furwife,
