Wowza, I found out a pawsome secret yesterday on my birthday. Only cats who have had a birthday up here find out about it.
After we had cake and it was almost time for the party to be over, I got blindfolded and a bunch of us went on a cloud ride. I couldn't tell which direction we were going, but when we got there and they took my blindfold off, I was looking at a big yellow neon sign that said,
Alley Cat Bowling
OMC - they have a bowling alley at the bridge! We got assigned to lanes, and we bowled until the wee hours of the morning. I'll bet some of you could even hear us because sound carries down in case you didn't know. The ball hitting the pins is sort of loud here, but down on earth it sounds like thunder - MOL!
The bowling pins have dogs' faces on them - how funny is that? I found out that I'm not half bad at bowling! We're only allowed to come to the bowling alley when there is a birthday. Since today is Merlin the Cat Wizard's birthday, you might hear us bowling again tonight!
It sure was a pawsome party at the bridge - thanks, pals, for sharing it with me! And be sure to keep mum on this top secret secret!

Wowza! Today is my very first birthday since coming to the bridge! The first thing I noticed this morning when I went to the Internet Cafe was this pawsome stroll of my pals! They all tagged a special picture with 4 our pal Calvin! Thank you, pals! That stroll made me smile!
Then all my angel pals came to the Internet Cafe to get me. They were all wearing party hats, and gave me a big birthday crown to wear. We had a parade over at Dog Village - the dogs hate it when we party cause they are jealous of how much fun we have! Lots of cats in the parade had instruments, so if you heard a bunch of booms, it was the dummers!
After the parade, we went to the Birthday Cloud. It is a humongous cloud that is only used for birthdays. It is decorated really cool, and they project the birthday cat's picture in the air - we don't have walls up here! There is food, and a huge cake, and places to lounge and take catnaps. It is gonna be an all-day party!
My family misses me so much, but they know I'm busy at the bridge, and I have many pals with me, so it makes them feel better. Thank you to all my pals for making my first birthday away from home so special. I love all the nice messages you have left me. Catster rocks!
I've gotta get back to the party, but I wanted to leave you with this pawsome poem written by my pal, Dude Kitty.

Yesterday while I was trying to find out secrets about my big birthday bash, the rainbow started flashing. That means a pal is getting ready to come to the gate.
I had just gotten the new pink Welcome sign back from the sign department, and when I picked it up, the cat behind the desk told me that she contacted the Rainbow Flasher cat. The Rainbow Flasher is going to give us a heads up on whether the newest angel coming to the bridge is a boy or a girl. Either the pink or blue part of the rainbow will glow brighter. That way, I'll know which sign to bring to the gate.
So, the pink arch was glowing brighter. I ran to get Rocky Ann because I promised her she could help me hold the sign for the first pink angel pal that came through the gate. After all, she and her gal pals designed the sign - it's the least I could do!
We both ran to the gate and got in the front. I sort of let her hold more of the sign than I did because I could tell she was taking the job very seriously.
We saw the cloud approaching that carries the newest angel, and I thought I saw a flower lei around her neck. Then I heard singing! All the angels at the bridge were singing, I Wish They All Could Be California Girls.
And I knew who it was.
The First Lady of Catster had come to the bridge.
There was hugging, and crying, and Oh my cats, what are you doing here, and a heart basket filled with a catrillion hearts! Mercy took one look at me, and I could tell that she knew she was going to be okay. She gave me a big 'ole high five, and then we all sat down to hear about what happened.
I told Mercy there was gonna be a lot of crying today on Catster, and she said that her family was very sad. I tried to encourage her by telling her the first thing you find out how to do at orientation is sprinkle angel dust. Can you imagine the bucket of angel dust she is going to need when she flys by her family's house? I'll bet Rocky Ann will help her since they both will be going in the same direction.
There is one good thing about Mercy coming to the bridge. She got here in time for my first birthday party. It is going to be one blast of a party, and even though I'm very sad for her family, I'm glad she is here to party with me!
Welcome to the bridge, Mercy! Let me show you around the place . . . . .

Dang, I'm wearing out this Welcome Sign cause so many pals have been coming to the bridge lately. I've got a new one on order. I thought it would be nice to have one sign for the guys and one sign for the girls. I've heard from the girl angels that they wanted a pink welcome sign. Rocky Ann got all the girls together and they designed one for me to submit to the Sign Department.
The newest angels who have arrived, and are almost finished with orientation are:
As much as I didn't want to see them arrive at the bridge, I'm glad they will be here for my first birthday at the bridge this coming Monday.
I've been told by other cats who have had a birthday to expect a pretty pawsome party. I can't wait to share the birthday secrets with you. So far, I've been lucky that none of the big cats up here have found out about the secrets I've been sharing with you.
It's gonna be a huge birthday week - one long party at the bridge! Merlin the Cat Wizard has his birthday on Tuesday, and Spunky's birthday is on Wednesday.
Don't forget to stop by all the pages of the newest angels and send them a note or leave a comment in their diary. I know they would love to hear from their pals.

I don't think I'm supposed to tell you this, but a bunch of us are going over to the Concert Cloud tonight for a special show.
Michael Jackson is having a big bash for his 1 year anniversary of coming to the bridge. We all got t-shirts in our mailbox this morning.
Spunky and I signed up for the craft class this afternoon. We're making sequined gloves to wear for the concert! It is going to be so pawsome to see all us cats wearing a sparkly glove! I'm sure Rocky Ann's glove will be pink. I think I'll make mine orange.
So, to get ready for the big concert, I've put some Michael Jackson songs on my page. No checking on my page first, but if you leave a comment in my diary, and you're the first to guess one of the four songs on my page, I'll send you a rosette from the bridge!
I'll give out four - one to each cat who correctly guesses the songs!
Gotta go . . . . . Dude Kitty is gonna teach us how to do the moon walk!

The Pharoah Loki is rappin' some stuff
We're all upset and
we've had e-nuff
The Catster logo is
boring and plain
It feels like we're all
on a runaway train!
The Cat's Meow is
buried in litter
Please move that link for
Facebook and Twitter!
I'd rather see Cat
of the Day and Week
Front and center --
just a small tweak!
The font is so small
it takes a magnifying glass
Nutro is advertising?
that is just crass!
Come on Top Cat
let's hear from you
We're all wonderin'
what you're gonna do
Do us cats really matter
at this website?
If we do, you'd better
make it all right!
I'm done with this rap
and that ugly cat head
Off to my cloud
until we hear from Ted!

Everytime you see a cute orange kitty, do you think to yourself, self, that looks like Calvin!
Well, you might just be looking at a Calvin! Meet the newest Calvin on the block!
He is only two months old, but I can tell already that he is going to be a real looker, and the girls are gonna go Ga-Ga after him, and I'm not talking Lady GaGa!
Welcome to Catster, Baby Calvin! I hope you have a pawsome life!

It's my first Mawmee's Day at the bridge, and I wasn't sure how we celebrate it. Last night when all us Catster pals were chillaxin at The Catster Club, Catsy went up to the microphone and told us the agenda for today. She is the chaircat of the Mom's Day Committee.
We had a big breakfast this morning, and cats took turns talking about what made their Mom special. You had to sign up ahead of time to speak, and I decided since it was my first year up here, I would wait until next year to sign up to talk.
Cole, Buddie, and Simba were a few of the cats that gushed about what a great Mom they had. I had to laugh when Buddie was talking about his Mom and when she first got him on Catster. He is a real comedian!
Then we all piled into the craft room, and we had to make cards for our Moms. My pal, Dude K., always sits with me in the craft room cause we like throwing beads and glitter at the girls! There is a ginormous bulletin board, and we all tacked our cards to it when we were done.
The Mother's Day Cloud Train leaves the station at 2:00 this afternoon. It's a little different than the Rainbow Ride we took on St. Patrick's Day. I think I heard Maggie Moo say she was going to ride up front with the conductor. Man, I want that job next year!
The Cloud Train takes us all across the country. Everycat has a window seat and there is a big box that sits next to us full of angel dust. Whenever you want, you can take a paw full and sprinkle it down to earth!
I can't wait to go . . . . . . . it's going to be so much fun. I heard they even serve treats on board!
Happy Mawmee's Day to all the Catster Moms!

I've been carrying around my Welcome sign non-stop this week! It seems like everycat coming through the gate is orange!
For those of you who might have missed some of the orangness that journeyed, I'd like to remind you.
Ginnger made his journey today.
Marvin came through the gates yesterday.
Tommy came skipping in on Tuesday, the 4th.
A couple of non-orangies also journeyed this week.
Sneakers got here on Monday.
I was almost late welcoming Maxwell last Saturday cause I was watching the Kentucky Derby.
Whew, I'm pooped! I'm hoping it is a quiet weekend so I can get caught up on my catnaps!

Wowza, that jockey Calvin Borel won his third Kentucky Derby today on a horse named Super Saver. Of course, he was my pick, and I won the pool up here at the bridge!
Remember in 2009 when I wrote this diary entry about Calvin Borel? He won on Mine That Bird last year!
And remember in 2007 when I wrote this diary entry about Calvin Borel? He won on Street Sense in 2007!
Congratulations to that famous Calvin - I'm happy to have his name too!
