Make New Friends, But Keep the Old . . . . .

Wowza, it has been a busy week at the bridge. So many new angels to greet and get settled in to their orientation classes. It keeps all of us up here very busy.

Since Valentine's Day is tomorrow, I wanted to say something about friendship. I have lots of friends that I would never have if I hadn't started my Catster page. It's good to have friends for a lot of reasons.

1. Friends make you smile.

2. Friends make you laugh.

3. Friends teach you stuff.

4. Friends are there for you when you're sad.

As my friendgirl Rocky Ann says, you can never have enough friends!

I want to tell you about one of my good pals. His name is Monkey Blue! Most of you who have only been on Catster for a couple of years don't know Monkey, but let me tell you, Catster was the place to be years ago because of friends like Monkey!

Monkey used to have the best parties, and we all laughed and had so much fun. Here is a montage on his page of all of us with monkeys! Monkey had a blog too where he posted lots of cool pictures of him and his sister, Cooper.

Monkey hasn't been around for about three years. It makes me cry big 'ole cat tears when I think about Monkey and his Mommy. She used to live with Monkey and Cooper, and then when Monkey's Mommy and Daddy got divorced, Monkey and Cooper stayed with his Daddy because his Mommy didn't want to split up the kitties. That is true love.

And you want to know what else is true love . . . . . friendship kind of love? Monkey had a gazillion zealies that have accumulated in his account, and he transferred them to our family! Samoa almost peed in her pants, if she was wearing pants!

This special gift means so much to us because we always run out of zealies each month, and we don't buy them any more. We've had other special friends occasionally give us gifts of zealies, and we appreciate it very much. We are set for a very long time.

If you don't use your monthly allotment of zealies, find someone who will and give them away. It is a great act of friendship!

Thank you, Monkey Blue and Cooper, for thinking of us and giving us a great gift of friendship. We think about you so much, and we miss all the pawsome times we had on Catster with you!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Those were good memories of all the fun we had with Monkey and Cooper on Catster with his Mom! I see me there with my PINK monkey. MOL! Thanks for taking us down memory lane, Angel Calvin. I miss them too.

What sweethearts they are to gift you all those zealies. Purrfect for Valentines Day Month!

It is amazing all the great friends (and bestest friend) we have made on Catster from all over the world.

Happy Valentines Day Monkey Blue and Cooper and Mom. We love you and miss you!

And we are very happy to be friends with your family too, Calvin. You have made Catster even more fun all these years.

Happy Valentines Day to all our Catster Friends!

You are so right, Calvin. My family motto (or one of them) is we get by with a little help from our friends!
Mom wishes she had the willpower to say no to zealie buying.
One of these days she will have no choice.
It was really nice of Monkey's family to pass theirs to yours.
