Helping Copy Your Diaries!

Well, I won't even begin to tell you how sad I am that we are no longer going to be a Catster community. You all have been such a huge part of our lives for such a long time, and it makes us so very sad to know that it is going away.

Of course, everyone is frantically trying to save their pictures and diary entries before March 3rd.

Luckily, most of our diaries were saved, but Mawmee has been helping some other cats save their diaries.

Just today, we found a very cool and easy way to convert your diary entries into a PDF file.

This might just work with the Firefox browser, so if you're not using Firefox, you can get that free on the internet.

Then you need to go HERE to this Web-to-PDF converter.

1. Open up the first page of your diary (which will include several entries)
2. Copy the URL at the top of your browser
3. Paste that URL into the box on the link above
4. Click the "Convert" button
5. It will take a few minutes to convert, but a PDF file will open with your diary entries on it
6. COPY that PDF file to your computer
7. Go to page 2 of your diary and start the process over again
8. Repeat until you've copied your entire diary


You know how important our diaries are, and as a final reminder, I was once at the Top of the Most Pawpular Diaries! I couldn't let that slip your mind, now, could I? MOL!

We love you all, and we hope if your Mom/Dad isn't on Facebook, they will go over and get on FB - so many of our parents are there, and while it will never be the same as our Catster community, at least we can stay in touch with one another.

My Mawmee is Laura Strickland on Facebook.

Love and kisses from the bridge ~

Samoa

Do you know if it will work on a Mac? Mac doesn't use Abode PDF but has the PDF converter built into the OS system itself.

Mom doesn't like or use Firefox but would download it if it would work on her Mac and help save my diary entries. Luckily she saved (and printed!) all of Miss Mittens' diary entries. Otherwise, you'd hear her screams all the way out west from NJ!

Love you Samoa!

Meowmy ish going to make screen shots of our diaries with Photoscape, which ish a furree program that isha lot like Photoshop, but thank yew fur these suggestions. We will neFUR use FB - Meowmy despises it (she actually did a little dance when she deleted her page she was so happy 3 years ago), and I also deleted my page too long ago, as it was such an awful site to be on - so that is not an option fur us at all. We are thinking about making a blog on blogger and hope that others may do that too - we ish just so upset about all of it, and Meowmy ish actually sick to her stomach from the news. I still hash my fun fun toys yer Meowmy made, the ones that ish circles with fun fuzzy stuff all around them - Roger and I loves them - thank yew guys so much!

Thank you Samoa we will try this for sure, I don't have much time as we are in the process of trying to sell our house so we can move in May to your beautiful state....

I am not sure I will go to FB, I too am thinking of doing a blog, and looking into other options, of course now are as great as Catster...I am so heartbroken and sick over this I feel like I am going through Tallulah's death all over again. I can't even imagine not coming here....

Thank you so much for being our friends and I will be sure to keep in touch, who knows maybe once we are settled we can figure a way to meet up in Arizona...

We love you all

Xena and Peggy

Thank you Samoa. As always you are a step ahead of the game. We have tried this on our browser which is Comodo Dragon (based on Chrome) and it works fine.

We sure would love to have you on Facebook, Peggy! As far as a Mac goes, you might just google for a Mac PDF converter and see if you can find one.

There is always the "copy/paste" method where you copy each diary page and then paste it into a Word document. You can then convert the word document to a PDF later on if you want.

Thanks Samoa! Beepers' told mom us how to save in PDF on the Mac. It's very easy and we can use the Safari browser and don't have to download another browser. If anyone else has a Mac and wants to know how to do it, please read my sister Miss Mittens' diary.

Love,
Kaci

Samoa, we love you and your family so much. You were one of the first to welcome us here with open paws.
We love our Firefox. We have painstakingly copied and pasted Mietzi's diary because we wanted to copy the comments also. Almost done with Mietzi's.

Don't you also have a blog or is that just your Mom's blog? Hope we'll see each other again somewhere somehow.

Sad purrs,
Timo (and Mietzi, Sally, Mom Sonja)

If you use Google Chrome (download if for free..versions for Mac and PC) you can save pages in HTML as documents in your files. Pretty easy.
