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.
Just as we wiped away more tears at the thought of Catster/Dogster closing forever tomorrow, comes this news:
I am posting this notice on behalf of Jennifer Black-Glover, Chief Digital Officer.
Dear Community Members,
As many of you know, we have been looking at options for the past two years to save the community parts of Dogster.com and Catster.com. The community was scheduled to come down tomorrow and that is now on hold.
More information will come soon. In the mean time, we realize how important this is to all of you and would appreciate a few days to figure it out without phone calls and emails.
Chief Digital Officer
Let's all gather and purr that something can be done to at least keep all our pages here.
What a surprise that Catster is still here, and we can see that wonderful 8 on our Catster Anniversary cake!
Yep, eight years ago today we stumbled across Dogster as Mawmee looked to get in contact with a cocker spaniel that was a Katrina (New Orleans) dog. The only way she could contact him with some questions (as she was searching for lost dogs from the Katrina mess) was to join Dogster.
So, Autumn joined! And then we said it wasn't fair and we wanted to join too! As soon as she realized there was a Catster too, we all joined! Of course, being the diva of the house, I was the first cat to join.
And now, eight years later, we have over 7,600 friends, and have at least that many or more wonderful memories!
Unfortunately those memories include countless bridge journeys, and our family has more memorial pages than regular pages. And that is one of the reasons we were so sad to hear about the demise of Catster.
We anxiously await the news about what is going to happen with our beloved Catster. In the meantime, enjoy some anniversary cake, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
