I just got out of choir practice and thought I'd let you in on a little bridge secret. Remember, this is hush-hush top secret stuff I'm sharing with you!
There are two dudes up here named Hank and Harold. For years, they have been the choir directors. There are a bunch of different choirs you can join when you become an angel . . . . . the weekly choir . . . . the special events choir . . . . the all girls choir . . . . the all boys choir . . . . and the holiday choir.
I'm in the holiday choir. Our big concert is this weekend. We give three performances, and they are already sold out! I thought you might like to see the program.
Hank and Harold's Angels Sing
Featuring these famous holiday songs:
Wreck the Halls
The First Meow
Have Yourself a Furry Little Christmas
I Saw Mommy Hiss at Santa Claws
Requests from the crowd:
Ding-dong Mewily On High - Pipo and Minko
Santa Paws is Coming to Town - Skylar
We Wish You a Meowy Christmas - Charlie
Oh Come All Ye Furballs - Bear
Be listening because you might even hear us!

Well, pals, I've been at the bridge three years today. It was a sad day three years ago, but my family has been getting stronger every year and while they miss me so much, they remember me every day when they see pictures and my memorial box that is in the house.
And wowza, what a three years it has been as an angel! Who knew it would be such a busy place up here with daily gate greetings, parties, bowling tournaments, fly-bys, angel dust sprinkling, surgeries to watch over, and of course, naps!
We were all busy yesterday watching over Ka-zar as he had his toe surgery. We're glad that our angel dust helped him get through it okay! Soon we'll be crossing him off our big chalkboard (oops, I might have let a secret slip here) and there will be more cats to add to the list. Watching over our pals is one of our favorite jobs as angels.
I'll be flying over Arizona today to see what everycat is up to at my house. I'll have lots of company on my cloud, and then we have a big party planned for tonight. The girls up here make us wear pink all month for breast cancer awareness month. Queen Tallulah is in charge of sprinkling all our wings with pink glitter. I rolled my eyes at her when she added extra glitter to my wings, but it sure makes me all sparkly!
Thank you to my pals who have remembered my special day. I appreciate your friendship! I gotta run - the breakfast buffet just opened, and I get to go through the line first (ooops, another secret, don't tell!).

Okay, attention cats on earth! We are exhausted up here at the bridge! I've never made so many Welcome signs in the past two weeks! You gotta give us a break, and stay with your families!
All of us have been working overtime to get ready for the newbies. Now, I'm not saying we don't enjoy a little overtime cause there are perks that I haven't shared with you yet, but it makes us sad to see so many friends making their journeys.
Please be sure to stop by and visit these new angels and send some love to their families who are going to miss them very much.
Camille Rose just got here today. She had a dental cleaning, and had heart complications.
Colleen arrived yesterday after battling a cancerous tumor in her mouth/jaw.
Gumpy is a new angel too who was lucky to have lived for 18 years.
Tigger is another new angel. All the girl angels were hovering around him because he is so handsome!
Sharif arrived at the gate this week too.
Another new angel is Sassy. She is already using her wings!
PixieBelle is new here too, and we already have her helping with the Greeting Committee!
I'm hoping that we can continue to purr for those who are ill and that there are no more angels for awhile!

Wowza, my angel pals were up early this morning to get the party started! Today is my 21st birthday.
Now, for you cats that have known me a long time, you'll remember that 21 is a special number. When you live on earth, you're not allowed to date until you're 21. That was my big rule. I had to come up with that rule because so many girls were swooning over me and wanted to be my girlfriend. So, I told them I couldn't date until I was 21. All my gal pals were friendgirls, not girlfriends!
Today I'm 21. But, I'm an angel 21. Rules are different up here. As far as your status goes, you stay the way you came up here. So, I came up here single, and that is the way I'll stay forever. Whew, I was glad to hear about that rule when I went through orientation!
One reason the Big Cat made that rule is because we have so many things to do up here, and we don't need the distraction of having to change our status over at the Internet Cafe.
Okay, on to my birthday. I've already heard that we are going to have Field Day, but we call it Cloud Day up here. We play lots of fun games - Garp told me he is in charge of the Catnip Sack Race!
Later on we will have cupcakes inspired by my pal, Tate! My pals Nikko and Scooter suggested I wash it down with some champagne since I'm legal!
My pal, Thomas said he is in charge of the bowling tournament tonight. My team is going to kick some serious tail at the alley tonight.
My kneading pal, Alfie is in charge of getting all the angels together to fly over Arizona and sprinkle angel dust on my family. That will be fun!
Thanks to everyone who has remembered me on this special day. I'm happy to have Violet here with me as well as Spunky, Sugar, Rocky, and Autumn. We are going to have one big celebration!

I've been putting in a lot of overtime lately. Too many pals have been making their journeys to the bridge.
I've got Violet on sign duty. He doesn't even have his wings yet, but he wanted to help, so he and Rocky Ann are making Welcome signs.
The latest pal to journey is Big Harry. I sure didn't want to see him so soon, but sometimes the head cat needs more angels, and our friends must journey.
Please keep his family in your purrs. Big Harry is going to be missed so much. He just celebrated being Cat of the Day, so after he gets through with orientation, we're all going to chillax with him and hear about his big honor.
Send some love to Big Harry so he knows how much we dig him!

One of my very good friendgirls journeyed to the bridge today. If you're an Olde Furt, you all know Sissy as she is the one who writes a weekly column and keeps us all informed on everycat's life in the OF group.
Sissy is Luke's sister. Luke is one of my best pals, and I'm sending purrs to him, his siblings, and his Mom and Dad because I know how much they will miss Sissy. Sissy has lived with her family since she was a kitten.
She was 19 years young and while I think it is a little strange that she liked to roll around on celery, I think she was a pretty cool gal!
Sissy was shy, but she sure flirted with me, and now that she is an angel, she will probably be hanging around me all the time! I can't wait to hear all her stories about living in Canada.
Sissy was definitely the diva at her house. She had her own bed, chair, dresser - dang, she was the diva and the H.o.H.! I think her sister, Shadow, will have to take over that duty now.
Sissy liked to put her butt in the air like she just didn't care, and her Daddy would pat her butt. She liked that a lot, so I think I'll try to do that today to make her feel welcome up here at the bridge!
Please stop by and send some love to Sissy's family.

When I got word that my pal, Taz, was making his journey today, it made me so sad for his family. He was the H.o.H., and I know his Daddy, WS Mom, and his siblings will miss him so much.
But, let me tell you, pals, that Taz is one pawsome cat. We can't wait to sit down with him tonight and find out what it was like living to be 22 years old!
We all know that Taz was one of the best dressed cats around, so I'm sure he will be giving us some tips to looking our best as angels.
He is going to be busy going through orientation, and of course, we will all go with him later tonight to check in on his family and sprinkle some healing angel dust on them.
Welcome to the bridge, Taz! You sure had an overflowing heart basket, and you touched a lot of people during your long life!

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!

Hi pals! I guess it's no secret that the mistletoe rosette is a freebie right now!
But, what you probably don't know is the secret about the mistletoe for us angels. Now, remember, you're not supposed to know this stuff so that when you become an angel, you have to act surprised!
Everycat knows that if you stand under the mistletoe, you might get kissed. And everycat knows that I'm not a big fan of kissing girls. Luckily, I didn't live until I was 21 because then I would have had to pick a girlfriend. But at the bridge, I'm always gonna be 18 years old with a healthy body, and lots of friendgirls.
There are two times a year that I'll let my friendgirls kiss me. One of those times is in February when I set up my Valentine Kissing Booth. The money I take in from that goes to the Charity Cloud. I'll tell you more about that in February.
The Christmas Kissing Booth works a little differently. In our mailbox last week, we all got a Christmas Punch Card and a piece of mistletoe. For every kiss you get from some girlcat when you're under your mistletoe, you get a hole punched in your Christmas Punch Card. After you get twelve punches in the card, you can turn the card in for a gift.
I've already checked out the gift shop, and there are some pawsome toys, cat beds, and other cool stuff. So, I guess I'd better get my pucker ready for some serious smooching!
All of my angel family - Autumn, Rocky, Spunky, Sugar, and I wish you a pawsome Christmas weekend! We'll be watching over you, and you might even feel a little angel dust on your shoulder!
I gotta go - I see some angels lining up at my cloud . . . . . I think Rocky Ann is the first in line . . . . . it figures . . . . *rolls eyes*

I wanted to talk to all my pals who received a special holiday Calvin Collar this year. I have a secret to tell you, but remember, don't tell my secrets!
A special pal of mine said he/she had heard about Secret Santas. He/she wanted to be a Secret Santa, so they ordered 10 holiday Calvin Collars to send to 10 different friends.
Some of you might have thought those came from The Cat in the Clover, and you're right - they did - but they aren't from me and my family - they are from a Secret Santa that you know!
Now, guess what else is so pawsome about this Secret Santa? By purchasing 10 of the Calvin Collars, it bumped us over the 200th Calvin Collar sold since I journeyed to the bridge!
As you know, for every 25 collars sold, we sponsor a kitty at Best Friends Animal Society. The EIGHTH kitty that was recently sponsored is Fredrika! If you click on the link, you can go to the blog to see her picture and find out all about her.
She is a very shy kitty. The reason Fredrika was picked, besides being an orange kitty, is that she is from Phoenix! I think she is pretty too, and I hope she finds a forever home very soon.
Be sure to let me know if you got your Secret Santa collar, and if you get a picture wearing it, I want to know that too so that I can be sure the Secret Santa sees it!
Happy Thanksgiving - I'm on the table setting committee this year, so I've got to go because we're making placecards today!
