Arrival Story: Samoa was a stray and spent a lot of time in the woods behind our house. She gradually made her way to the front porch to be fed and eventually let me pick her up. It didn't take long before she made her way in the house, in our hearts, and a member of the family.
Bio: She is named after the Girl Scout cookie, because she has a caramel cookie-shaped spot above one eye! And because Samoa cookies are her Mawmee's favorite (but don't tell the others)!
Samoa is a very quiet kitty - walks quietly, purrs quietly, and doesn't talk much. When she does talk, it is in little tiny noises and chirps. She is a very girly girl cat.
She is also an occasional "love" biter - especially if you touch her belly! She loves, loves, loves to have her head and ears rubbed, and will dribble and drool to tell you how much she likes it.
Samoa's fur is the softest ever - almost like down. You can never pet her and not end up with some fine fuzzy fur on your hands.
Samoa made her peaceful journey to the bridge on October 12, 2013. She was diagnosed with a cancerous mass in her abdomen. She was a diva to the end, and made her journey with a boa around her neck and wrapped in a pink blanket. Forever loved, she will always be the diva of the house, but now as our guardian angel.
Oh, I have enjoyed naming Dreamboats since 2008! It is a list that I will hold close to my heart forever. I want to thank all the friends we have gotten to know since we joined Catster almost 8 years ago. I'm sad that Catster will be gone before we get that 8th candle on our cake mid-March.
It was a pawsome place for fun, laughter, sharing the good times and the sad. Our friendships may have started here, but they will continue in other places. Nothing will ever compare to the Catster Community. Thank you to everyone who made it the special place that it will always be in our hearts.
Here are the wonderful mancats that I call Dreamboats:
I'm both happy and sad today. Happy to announce another round of handsome dreamboats, but sad that this will be the last time dreamboats will be announced. I encourage all of you to save your pages well before March 3rd just in case something happens. We know Say Media is not fixing anything that breaks, so it would be a tragedy if you didn't have your pages saved!
The Wayback Machine is an excellent tool for archiving your pages. You don't have to join the site, just scroll down and on the right side is a place to put in your Catster URL. It will convert your page and give you a new URL which you should copy and paste into a word document so you have it for future use. Once you have your main page saved, you can continue clicking through (while on the Wayback Machine) various parts of your page - your photo album, your diary pages, etc. to save all of it to the Wayback Machine. You only need to keep that first new URL that the Wayback gives you because once you have everything saved, you'll be able to click and see those archived pages.
Now, on to Dreamboats! Most of the dreamboats you'll see on my list today come from one family. This family has a huge contingency up here at the bridge. And these cats have been around Catster for a very long time. In fact, many of the wings that we are wearing have come from the talented cats in this family.
You might also recognize the last cat on the Dreamboat List. He was a protestor who never wanted to be on my list, but secretly, I knew he wanted to be a dreamboat. He is dreamboat material through and through, and I just had to get him on my list! I know the girls will all agree with this pick!
Please stop by and visit all the dreamboats, give them a free rosette from the shop, and ask them to be friends! Tomorrow, I will have the complete Dreamboat List showing all the cats from way back to 2008 when I first started my list!
