Eight is Great - Happy Catster Anniversary to Us!

March 17th 2014 8:18 am
[ View A Comments (13) ]

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!

 

There is Hope!

Have you heard the news?

Hold on to your hats, cats!

Complete Dreamboat List and Farewell!

February 8th 2014 2:57 pm
[ View A Comments (17) ]

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:

The Last of the Dreamboats

February 8th 2014 8:51 am
[ View A Comments (11) ]

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.

Wayback Machine

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!

Here they are!

Dreamboats-in-Training!

February 6th 2014 9:00 am
[ View A Comments (17) ]

It's time to introduce you to some young mancats! These Dreamboats-in-Training will one day grow up to be fine, upstanding dreamboats in their communities!

The main difference between a Dreamboat and a Dreamboat-in-Training is their age. Many dreamboats-in-training have dreamboat siblings which will help them as they achieve their dreamboat status. It is always good to learn from our elders.

If you have a dreamboat-in-training as a sibling, you must realize that sometimes they can be unruly and downright bratty. But their cuteness lets them get away with it.

I've also found that the D.I.T.'s are so super cute and know how to charm the adults. They have a way with their eyes, if you know what I mean! So, I hope you enjoy these young mancats.

As with all D.I.T.'s, they will not reach full Dreamboat status for two years. Since Catster is closing it's doors on March 3rd, I am giving the Dreamboats-in-Training their D.I.T. number as well as their Dreamboat number (shown as DIT#/DB#). They will need their Dreamboat number in the future if applying for a job, or seeking membership in private clubs. The Dreamboat # is a good thing to put on your resume!

Enjoy!

I also wanted all the new dreamboats to know that I have a special group called the Dreamy Mancats. I have invited all of you to join. Some of you have your settings so that you're not accepting group invites, but I wanted you to know that I did try to invite you!

Congratulations to the D.I.T.'s! I'm still looking around for other possible candidates for my list. If you think I've missed somecat that should be on my list, please feel free to send me a pmail with the suggestion. I do my best to check out all the boys, but there are so many handsome ones, and sometimes an obvious choice slips through the cracks!

I'm very sad that my Honorary Dreamboat #5, Edgar, is making his journey to the bridge today. We will all be waiting with open paws to greet him.

In his honor, I've decided to add to my Angel Dreamboat list! You should see the wings on these mancats - they would take your breath away. Please stop by and visit their memorial page, ask them to be friends, and send them one of the three free rosettes in the shop!

Congratulations to these handsome angels. Angel Dreamboat #63, Nick, also just made his journey to the bridge as did Angel Dreamboat #64, Muffy. We send comforting purrs to their families and also to Edgar's family.

Dreamboat Time!

February 2nd 2014 9:17 am
[ View A Comments (13) ]

It's February, so that must mean it is time for Dreamboats! I've got lots of handsome mancats to add to my list this year. And since I named my angels a couple of days ago, I have even more angels to add to the list. These handsome cats are everywhere!

I hope you'll visit these new dreamboats and send them a free hug from the shop! We have to spread extra love around this month since our community will be leaving soon.

Here are some of the new boys on my list! You'll notice that we have a family affair going on - how could this much handsomeness be in one family?

As a reminder, there are many qualities of a dreamboat. Besides being handsome, they exhibit kindness, helpfulness around the house, and of course, they provide comfort and laughter too!

I'm always a sucker for a cat with good fur, so check out these mancats and see their beautiful markings and eyes. You will swoon!

I want to let all my friends know that choosing Dreamboats, Dreamboats-in-Training, and Angel Dreamboats is a job I take very seriously. It is not easy to compile my list each year.

This is my seventh year in naming Dreamboats, and while I keep a very important log that lists all my Dreamboats, sometimes even I forget who has been named as one of my Dreamboats.

Today, an angel friend came to mind after I've published my list. I have so many friends who are deserving to be on the list, so I don't want anyone to feel left out.

Unfortunately, sometimes that happens. I want you all to know that you are special, and the most important thing is that you are all Dreamboats to your family.

I'm still adding to my list. Who knows, I might have 10 more angel dreamboats before Catster closes its doors!

Keep on checking my diary!
