Final Thoughts!

Hey pals!

I've been busy at the bridge trying to save a bunch of my Catster stuff, and I sure got sad thinking about all the pals I'm going to miss. My Mawmee has been on Facebook for awhile, and she even set up a Facebook page for all of us cats - she has added our Catster pictures and will put other good stuff on there later.

So, I want to encourage your Moms and Dads to join Facebook. Of course, it isn't going to be the same as the pawsome community we had on Catster, but all those Moms and Dads are figuring out what we'll do next!

They have a couple of groups set up so they can connect with one another. We don't want to lose touch with our pals! They are also saving stuff from the Olde Furts group and other active groups.

We need you on Facebook so we don't ever forget you - so please join us over there.

Here is a link to my Mawmee's Facebook page - CLICK HERE! She is hard to find in a search, so please write down this URL so you don't lose it (facebook (dot) com / catstermom)

Also, we need you to >SIGN THIS PETITION TO SAVE CATSTER! It will be sent soon to the Top Dog at Say Media, so you need to get your paws on it and sign it NOW!

Finally, it goes without saying, but I'm going to say it anyway. We have cried so many tears over the destruction of Catster. And that is what it is - destroying what is a wonderful community of FRIENDS!

We can't begin to tell you how much your friendship has meant to us over the years. We have laughed, cried, and had so much fun, and to think that it is ending is heartbreaking.

Don't you worry, I'll still be greeting the new angels when they arrive at the bridge, and I'll figure out a way to tell you all the new bridge secrets I have learned.

Good-bye, pals, and remember the most important thing I've taught you in my years on Catster . . . . . .

Knead On ~

Love, your pal Calvin (or my too fast name, Clavin)

Is the Great Dino Roast still in Olde Furts? There was my Dino Roast and then later another member did a Dino hunt and we roasted that too, which was a year later - give or take - I think.

We just heard about this "Ning" thing too! MOL!!! It sounds like it might be a good alternative for a lot of us. We are hopeful that it will work out!

I hope we can find an alternate site that we can all join. My Mom is not on FB and does not want to be. She says she's too ditzy to figure out all the privacy rules, and she doesn't want everybody to know all her business!

We're glad we found you on FB. Not the same, but so happy we can stay in touch at least! They cannot take away the spirit of our community!

We're going to try to get on FB once we get our pages and photos copied and get contact info from furiends.. Thanks for posting all of the info. Already said this many times, but it's so so so sad to lose all of this. It's been great to get to know you and everyone here, we'll always cherish the happy times we had here.

Hugs from Gumpy

We are on Facebook too....Teach bam and Cats teach. either place is fine.
I found Lacey and Finn who are very good friends. As for writing in diaries, this may end for me because it isn't as convenient as it was here. I loved the different sections for cat information, diaries, zealies, and pictures.
We made so many friends easily. Facebook has no divisons and it takes so much time to scroll down....Meanwhile we found the cat site and Home/Here Kitty place too....See you on Facebook....we will be here unti the last to give away zealies and help any strays.....-Sharon owned by Juliette and Alex, (Natasha and Ben(angels)

Meow, Calvin! I've come here to say, I mean meow, "good-bye" to you, one of my pals from the good old days. Your family helped make Catster a great place. Knead on, Calvin!

Toffy - and all my pals who aren't on FB yet - there are lots of Moms/Dads on Facebook. Cats are over there too - we are trying to figure out the next best stop for getting us all together again. We will update diaries when we know something as we are trying to get it together before Catster shuts down in March.

In the meantime, we NEED you to come over to FB! Look up my Mawmee - she is Laura Strickland, and write down her FB URL because she is hard to find in a search because she has her settings that way.

We don't want to lose touch with our friends! We love you all and have to stay in touch!
