Arrival Story: November 12, 2005...my humans were on the way to the mall to spend money on themselves...they passed the Petmobile from Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and decided to turn around and take a look (smart humans)...they wanted a doggie (not so smart humans)...looked at the kitties and I came to the door of my cage and MEEOOOWED at mom...she held me and I clung to her and gave her a new furlook (I was shedding a lot back then)...they fell in love with me and brought me home with them. All the money they were going to spend at the mall, they spent on me!! Very smart humans after all!!!
Bio: Maggie had been at the shelter since December 2004. She had been adopted twice, brought back once because "she needed too much attention, second time "she startled easily". Lame, lame excuses! We gave her all the time she needed to adjust and to realize she has a forever home where she will be loved, cared for and spoiled. She's loving, gentle, affectionate and very regal. She's brought love and happiness to us after the loss of our precious little 18 1/2 yr. old Yorkie, Ralphie. I believe Ralphie knew she was the perfect kitty for us and led us to her and to her sister Aggie.

I'm way behind reading here, but simply don't have time. So if I haven't addressed a specific concern or am posting something you already know, my apologies.
When you write or call, it gets read/listened to by the appropriate party, but the email will be redirected to me for response. In addition, I copy the comments and suggestions to add to a queue of responses from the community which gets shared with the appropriate members of the Transition Team. Can I promise you that each and every member of the team will read every comment and suggestion? No. But most of them will read at least some, if not all of the comments and suggestions. And your feedback will get kicked around during meetings. So don't let the fact that I'm the one who answers discourage you.
Will the feedback make a difference? Well, the shutdown has been pushed back towards the end of the month. The "July 18 or later" projection in the Open Letter was sufficiently vague enough to where I can't state for a fact that the feedback caused the shutdown date to be pushed back, but my gut tells me it did.
Will more feedback save the community overall? I don't believe so, at least not in its present form. But it might give the powers that be sufficient motivation to devise a way to develop a true community area on the new platform tucked into the magazine section. Before you raise a chorus of "nevers!" remember that when the community parts of the sites went down, magazine was still online and accessible and working. The fact that magazine is stable and working while the community has problem after problem after problem, is why community is the only part being shut down.
One other quick note. I'm giving out zealies 999 at a time (the most I can give out at a time) as fast as I can. Do share extra zealies you have with others who I haven't gotten to yet.
Also, if you haven't already done so, cancel your auto-renewal for Plus. I have proactively canceled active memberships through August, so if your renewal is normally between September and June, I haven't gotten to you yet. We get cancellation notices from PayPal which will alert me to make sure your Plus is comped and 999 zealies added.
As always, you can reach me directly via "email@example.com" and "firstname.lastname@example.org" (the contact page still doesn't work), but allow for additional time due to the heavier than normal level of emails to Dogster/Catster Support.
I went to the ophthalmologist and after a thorough exam he said I have progressive pigmentation into the cornea, this is what he's calling it because, like so many things with cats, he doesn't know what is causing it or what it really is.
He prescribed an ointment and steroid drops and to be re-checked in four months unless my pawrents notice a drastic change, in which case they need to take me back right away.
He said he does not think it's cancer, he didn't say it wasn't. It will probably continue growing and could interfere with my eyesight but for now, it is not bothering me.
Mom notices me sleeping a lot more but that's because I'm going to be 12 and I have CRF. But I have my moments of unbridled joy & energy and I have a wonderpurr appetite and for now - for today - life is good and that's what matters.
