Wowza, it was a busy day up here at the bridge. Three of our pals made their journeys. I'm just glad they could ride on the same cloud and arrive at the gate together.
Purrs to their families tonight - don't worry about them - they have a gazillion angel pals to keep them company.

I hope you all will stop by and send them a note or leave a rosette. They are going to be missed so much by their families.
Come on, boys, I'll show you around the lounge . . . . . .

Two years ago today I became an angel. Wowza, was that a sad day at my house. Mawmee says the sadness is always there but it is hidden until she thinks about it. If she does too much thinking, she gets all teary eyed. Like my pal, Henry, said:
Your orange goodness is never too far from our hearts.
I like that a bunch, Henry! It's not like my family doesn't see me every day because there are pictures of me all over the house. I was definitely the H.o.H.! I don't think my siblings have figured out who is the H.o.H. since I left!
Now, on to important bridge secrets. I didn't realize it until Dude Kitty (of Da Tabbies O Trout Towne) told me, but on your second bridge anniversary, the flag on your mailbox gets swapped out. When you get here, your mailbox is painted blue and it has a rainbow flag on it. I saw the mailcat remove the rainbow this morning and replace it with a halo! He also painted my mailbox gold! Be sure to act surprised when this happens to you!
After we go angel dust sprinkling today, we're going to do some fishing, and then have a big campfire tonight with s'mores and ghost stories. The ghost stories up here are pretty pawsome because sometimes real ghosts tell the stories! Ooops, I wasn't supposed to tell you that!
Thanks to all my pals who remembered me on this day. I sure appreciate your friendships!

Yesterday I had a pawsome 20th birthday! All my pals helped me celebrate, and after we had cake and ice cream, we flew over my house and watched the movers pack all my family's stuff into a big truck.
Tomorrow, Spunky, Sugar and I are on ADS alert - that means Angel Dust Sprinkling for all you non-angels! We can't wait to see all our siblings in the back of the car together as they make their way to Arizona!
It is going to take four days because Mawmee and Daddy don't want them in the car for more than 8 or 9 hours a day. The first night they will be in Springfield, Missouri. The second night they will be in Elk City, Oklahoma. Emily Felicity is going to help me sprinkle angel dust that day since it is close to her house. Then the last night they will be in Gallup, New Mexico. I heard that Scooter and Nikko will be helping them get through Albuquerque. I've got Scootie Patootie and Lola helping me that day with the angel dust!
Don't forget to check out my namesake, Calvin - he is Diary of the Day today, and I'm very proud of him!
Thanks to all my pals for making my birthday so special - it means a lot to me that you haven't forgotten about me!

I haven't told you much about what happens with weather up here at the bridge. It is nice all the time, but we take field trips to see the Weather Cat.
The Weather Cat is the top dude that sends rain to different parts of the world. I got to visit him last week. He is the cat that names all the tropical storms. He told me they name storms alphabetically, and they were getting read to name the C storm.
I said I thought it would be cool to be named after a tropical storm, and since I was the first one to request it, he said he would name it after me!
So, be on the lookout for Tropical Storm Calvin - or T.S. Calvin as we call it up here at the bridge! My storm is expected to stay offshore, but I might bring some heavy rains to the coast.
You want to hear something funny? The Weather Cat named the A storm after my Grandmaw, Arlene! Maybe my entire family will get storms named after them this year. That would be cool!

Hey pals! I wanted to let you know that another cat has been sponsored from the sale of all the Calvin Collars! For every 25 collars that are sold at The Cat in the Clover, we sponsor an orange/orange-white cat at Best Friends Animal Society.
Can you believe that 175 collars have been sold? That is a whole lot of crocheting! Parker is our 7th cat to sponsor since I made my journey to the bridge. He sure is a handsome mancat, and I'm glad he is living in a safe place. I hope one day he gets adopted.
Mawmee and Daddy are going on vacation next week, and they are taking a day trip to the north rim of the Grand Canyon. On their way back to where they are vacationing, they are going to stop at Best Friends and stay in one of their cabins.
The next day, they will go visit the sanctuary, and maybe Mawmee can meet Parker! While they are at Best Friends, they are going to Angel's Rest which is the pet cemetery. It is a really beautiful place with lots of chimes and bells and special momentos that people leave. They are going to look up the bell that is there in memory of Louis LeBeau. They are going to take pictures of it, so I can share that with you when they get back.
Thanks to all my pals who have purchased Calvin Collars over the years so we can sponsor these kitties!

It's a good thing I've got pals checking out the internet because I would have missed my appearance on the homepage today if it weren't for Dude Kitty!
There is a link for a gallery of pictures showing cats with their favorite toys. And I'm sitting there with a toy in my paws!
I'm sure you all are wondering why there has been so much thunder in the past week or so. Well, you all think it is thunder, but I've told you before that it is just us angels having our bowling tournments!
I see where another big storm is heading toward my house tonight. I've sent down a note from the bridge (oops, I don't think I'm supposed to tell you about that) that Mawmee and Daddy need to take my paintings downstairs with them tonight.
If there was a tornado, and the roof blew off or the whole top of the house blew away, those paintings need to be kept safe. Come to think of it, she better take my ashes box downstairs with her too!
Us angels are going to be busy tonight because if you're not in the bowling tournament, you're on angel dust duty to make sure everycat stays safe!

I wanted to link to a diary entry I did a long time ago, but since Catster made changes, you have to scroll through diary pages one at a time now to find something in your diary. I used to be able to search easier, so instead of giving you the link, I'll tell you the story!
I have 7,125 pals. Once upon a time, I thought it would be cool to see if I had a friend from every letter of the alphabet. I checked out all my pals, and I was missing a U friend.
So, I went searching for the purrfect U friend, and I found Ug. Ug is now an angel up here at the bridge with me. When I found Ug, I sort of felt sorry for her because her nickname was Ugly/Ugly Cat. I sure think she is really pretty, and we became pals.
So, the other day when I saw a U cat was Diary of the Day, it reminded me of my search for a U cat!
Do you have a U cat in your cat friend list? I hope you'll check and make sure you have a pal from every letter of the alphabet. And if you don't have a U pal, then you need to stop by and ask Ug to be a pal.
And then you need to stop by and ask Uboo to be a pal. He was the cat that was Diary of the Day! Uboo's nickname is Uboo Von Duboo - how cool is that?
And to show you what a great pal Uboo will be - the last forum he posted in was Problem Making Friends! He is friendly and tries to help other cats figure out how to make friends!
Go ahead, complete your Friend Alphabet today!
My pal, Scootie Patootie, was nice enough to find those diary entries for me!
Here is the diary entry back in 2006 when I was searching for my U friend!
Dang, I just remembered that Scootie Patootie was the one who recommended Ug as my U friend! Here is that diary entry which completed my alphabet!
You'll notice that neither one of those diary entries had comments because a gazillion years ago, we didn't have that pawsome feature! Thanks, Scooter for sending me those links!

I noticed that HQ gave us lots more room to add pictures. Mawmee was really happy about the extra 100 we can add because she had reached the limit on most of us. She sure didn't like deleting pictures in order to add new ones.
So, I'm sure a bunch of you have noticed that I got a lot more pictures added to my page today. Thank you so much for all the comments you are leaving on the pictures.
It made Mawmee happy, but of course, she was also crying when she saw some of the pictures because it reminded her how much she misses me.
Thanks, Top Cat, for giving us more photo space. I've gotta run - we're having a meeting tonight regarding the big Easter egg hunt and egg decorating party.
Talk to you later . . . . .

We got an early notice that my pal, Hazel Lucy, is making her journey to the bridge today.
All her angel pals have been busy getting ready for her arrival. Rocky Ann shined up the pink Welcome sign. Dude Kitty said he would make sure her heart basket is ready at the gate when she arrives.
Sugar is getting her signed up for orientation, and Spunky has been crocheting a nice tranquility blanket for her to chillax on in the Catster Club tonight.
What can a cat say about Hazel Lucy? She is a Catster LEGEND! Is there anycat that doesn't know Hazel Lucy? She started the Purr thread, and if we didn't have that purr thread that Boxie Brown now takes care of, we wouldn't have had so many miracles around here.
Is there anycat that doesn't have a tranquility blanket? If we didn't have those tranquility blankets, this place would be all untranquil!
Is there anycat that hasn't appreciated all the notices about recalls and bad stuff we should avoid? HL has kept us informed, and that is going to be her major job when she becomes an angel. All the cats on earth will still need to know about stuff like this, so she is going to be busy up here at the bridge!
And who told us all about Calming Collars, and how to officiate at a wedding, and how to have the first Catster wedding, and being in love, and taking trips, and giving me opportunities to roll my eyes?
It is Hazel Lucy . . . . . and we are going to be so sad for her Mom when she makes her journey. She has given Hazel Lucy such a great life, and we are proud to have her as a friend.
Please keep her Mom in your purrs all day and for a long time because she is going to miss Hazel Lucy so much. I know Buddie is very excited to be reunited with HL, and I'm going to let him hold the Welcome sign to greet her.
May your journey be peaceful . . . . . we love you, HL!

I wanted to let you cats know that I'm so happy you are still purchasing Calvin Collars because we were able to sponsor another kitty at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary!
For every collar that is purchased, Mawmee sets aside $1.00. When 25 are sold, we sponsor a cat. In 2009, we sponsored Cheeze and Sebastian. In 2010, we sponsored three cats - Homer, Sunny, and Yellowstone!
And our first cat sponsored in 2011 is Saigon! You can read about Saigon over at The Cat in the Clover blog!
For those of you that are really good in math, that means we've sold a butt load of collars - 150! Thank you so much for keeping my spirit alive by wearing the collars. It makes me so happy every time I see a pal wearing a new collar.
And please, don't forget to tag those photos:
so that you can be in the stroll, and I can get you featured over at the blog!
I am so tired from the big bowling tournament we had this past weekend. It lasted for days because we had so many birthdays to celebrate! It's time for a catnap, and the napping is good up here at the bridge!
