I want to thank all my pawsome pals that have bought a Calvin Collar. We have sold 49 of them, and sponsored one cat at Best Friends Animal Society. When one more collar is sold, we'll be sponsoring a second orange cat from Best Friends. You see, for every 25 sold, we sponsor a cat.
Wowza, who would have thought that cats would look so pawsome and feel good in their Calvin Collars? Be sure to tag a picture of you wearing the collar with the words: Calvin Collar
You can see a stroll of all the cats who are wearing their Calvin Collars by clicking here.
When you tag your pictures, then I can see all you hip cats in one place, and we can also get the picture to include in The Cat in the Clover blog. Today, Gilmore is featured on the blog.
Be sure to stop by Gilmore's page and ask him to be friends. He sure has a pawsome family!

Well, you cats have heard the expression, sitting on Cloud 9, haven't you?
I just got back from a Cloud 9 Briefing! I had been hearing cats talk about a Cloud 9 Day coming up next week, and I had no idea what they were talking about. Spunky kept telling me to be patient and to wait for my briefing where it would be explained to me.
Shhhhhh, this part is the secret.
Every family has a Cloud 9 up here. It is only used on holidays and special family occasions. Cloud 9 is the cloud directly above the house where you lived when you were on earth. Now, on days where your family on earth can't see any clouds, Cloud 9 is still there - it is just really high up.
When us angels hear the Big Cat come over the loud speaker and say, Cloud 9 is now open, we all get to go chillax on the cloud and watch over our family.
Sure, we can watch over our families anytime we want - but we have to fly with our wings. On Cloud 9 days, we get to chillax and stay on the cloud with our angel family and watch over our earth family. It's a lot more relaxing cause we're sitting on Cloud 9!
Autumn, Spunky, and Rocky told me that our Cloud 9 is right next to Jack's cloud, and also next to Shadow's cloud because they live in our town.
I asked Spunky what happens to our Cloud 9 if Mawmee and Daddy ever move. He said that our Cloud 9 automatically moves to wherever they move. How cool!
So, next week I'll be listening for the announcement about Cloud 9, and that is where all us angels will be on Christmas!
Remember . . . . . . . . . it's a secret . . . . . . . . .

Wowza, it has been a busy week at the bridge. We've been celebrating Lola's big win as the World's Coolest Best in Show! I was happy to see my brother, Gleek, as a winner too! Congratulations to all the winners.
Another winner this week is my Angel Pal of the Week - Ava Corrine!
Ava came to her forever home when she was 8 years old. Whoever owned her before didn't get her spayed, and it is really important to get your eggs and grapes removed at an early age so you don't develop cancer. Ava had mammary cancer and came to the bridge this past August. She was only 10 years old. Her family did everything they could to help her, and they sure miss her alot. Cancer stinks!
Ava loved pizza night at her house. You should see her when we have Pizza Night at the bridge. Ooops, another secret revealed! Yep, we have Pizza Night every week - sometimes it's on Friday night, and sometimes it's on Saturday night. Ava always comes into The Catster Club and announces when we're having Pizza Night. The gal can chow down on pizza!
Ava is quite a beauty - she is a siamese, and sometimes I can't tell her apart from Scooter! The problem up here is so many girls have the nickname Princess, and if you yell it out, you'll get 100 cats answering you! That is why I like to use her other nickname - Ava Misbehava! There aren't too many girls with that nickname - MOL!
Ava was a lap cat just like me. She liked sleeping with her Meowmy, and she liked carrying toys around the house and created little piles of them. She still does that up here with catnip toys!
Ava has a couple of sisters, a couple of brothers, and a dog that will really miss her this Christmas. Ava will be chillaxin up here this holiday with her sister, Lilah and all her other Catster pals!
Be sure to stop by and ask Ava and her family to be friends. Thanks for being my Angel Pal of the Week, Ava . . . . . . .

Well, I've got some more secrets for you about Christmas up here at the bridge.
Last night was the ornament workshop. It's for all us newbies so we can make an ornament for the tree. There is a whole Christmas village that stays up year round. That way when we celebrate Christmas in July, we don't have to set up and decorate all those trees. Dang, they do it right up here!
The ornament we make has our picture on it, and the date we arrived up here. Then we decorate the back of it however we want. Some gal that looks like an elf leads the workshop and helps cats that aren't very craft oriented. Since I had a super crafty Mawmee, I know alot about crafts, so I didn't need any help. I put pictures of my family and some of my word up words on the back of my ornament.
Then, we had a special ceremony with all the cats up here. Everycat took a turn showing their ornament and then hung them on one of the many trees. The big honor is getting to throw the big switch that lights up all the trees. Lola got picked, but she is such a lightweight, so Scooter helped, and pretty soon the whole village was ablaze in beautiful lights of every color of the rainbow.
And speaking of every color of the rainbow, there are colors you don't even know about until you get up here to see them!
Remember, all this stuff I'm telling you is a secret. I could get in big trouble if the head cat found out!

Now that I'm getting used to my duties up here at the bridge, I thought it was time to start back with my Pal of the Week. From now on, all my pals will be angel pals since I'm chillaxin with a bunch of angels!
My first Angel Pal of the Week is Brummel! I was hanging out at the Catster Club one night, and my pal, Wally, introduced me to Brummel.
Brummel just had his first JA on December 5th. JA is angel word up for Journey Anniversary. A Journey Anniversary is always a hard time for the family of the angel, so we all help sprinkle angel dust so that they feel better.
Let me tell you, when I first laid my big green eyes on Brummel, I thought it was Gleek! He is one handsome cat. Like a lot of us, Brummel had more than one family. His first family stunk like old cheese and they weren't nice to him, so he ditched them and found a new forever home.
He lived with his family for six years, and they sure miss him. He lived in Spain! That is the cool thing about Catster - we can meet cats from all over the world.
Brummel had some special skills on earth - he redecorated furniture. I'm not sure if that is the same thing that Violet does at my house - you know, using his claws to make the furniture look more cat-friendly! I'll have to ask Brummel about that.
Brummel liked cardboard boxes, balls, shoes, and newspaper! I know my way around a cardboard box too!
So, please stop by and visit my first APOTW - ask him to be friends - and don't forget to ask his siblings too! Thanks for being my first Angel Pal of the Week, Brummel . . . . . . . . .

Dang, don't any of you get any ideas that being an angel is all rest, play, and no work. The head dude up here has us running ragged, but it's a good thing we are healthy forever so we can keep up the pace!
In addition to my Welcome Committee duties which has been giving me some overtime pay - yeah, we get paid up here - bet you didn't know that - I've got some other duties too.
We are all on call for Angel Dust Sprinkling. We sprinkle for different reasons - when there is a new kitty in a family, when somecat is sick, when a cat joins Catster - there are a lot of reasons you get sprinkled from the angels.
Whenever a cat is having surgery, there is a big turnout for sprinkling. Here is another secret from me, but remember, act like you don't know this when you eventually get up here.
In our welcome packet is a rainbow pawwatch. We have to wear it at all times. Whenever the pawwatch starts playing, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, we know it is time to sprinkle angel dust. The Angel Dust Committee fills us in on the 411 (that's angel talk for the WWWW's). In case you don't know what that means, it is the who, what, where, and why of angel dust sprinkling.
We've already been given a heads up that tomorrow will be surgery angel dust sprinkling for Joey. He is having a big, fat, nasty tumor removed from his neck.
So, while all the angels are sprinkling him with angel dust, the rest of you need to get your purr motor revved up and send him some purrs. The tumor is a mystery tumor, so be sure to purr that it isn't cancer.
I gotta go - there is a brusselball game this afternoon, and I don't want to miss it!

Well, I just have to tell you that there are no errors at the bridge. We don't have anything like Error 6 or Log In problems! So, don't worry about us when we go to the Internet Cafe'. We have the best techno cat around, and we never run into problems!
The only problem I'm gonna have tomorrow is who to sit next to at the big Thanksgiving dinner. Lola has been hanging all over me, and keeps telling me to sit next to her cause she is a good girl.
And then I got my pals Skinner, Whatnot, Yeti, Smokey, and Merlin the Cat Wizard who have only been here since the beginning of the month. They need help figuring out where to go and what to do.
Dang, I've only been here a month myself, so I'm still learning the ropes. Even though it is only the first Thanksgiving for my pals Scooter, Sammie, Tyler, Jack, Kashmere, Alaidh, Susie, Boots, Icebox, Patrick, Lucky, Ginger, Jake, Queenie, Yngvar, Shadow, Shep, Zack, Duncan, Burbank, Charlie, Emma, Mojo, Tooney, Simon, Missy, Cookie, Simi, Bibi Anne, Cinder and a few more pals, we all decided to find the biggest, roundest table and sit together as group. I've also asked my eye twin, Buddy, and our other great pal, Buddie to join our table since they both have bridge dates close to Thanksgiving.
We're gonna call it the 2009 table. We've got a lot to talk about, so it will be an all day feast! I think we've even saved some room at the table for a few doggies - I've asked Rocky to join us, and he is bringing Sadie Boo and Stormy B. along with him.
Happy Thanksgiving to all those back on earth. We're sure going to miss you, and we know you'll miss us too.

Wowza, there is little time for rest up here at the bridge. Since I got on the Welcome Committee, that rainbow has been blinking a lot!
I had to grab my Catster sign and hightail it to the gate tonight when Skinner journeyed to the bridge.
After getting his heart basket, and running over to meet me, we sat down and got to know each other. Skinner is one handsome dude, and he sure had a rough time in his life - first as a stray, and then with different illnesses.
But, now he is done with being sick and can play and run free at the bridge - and chillax at the Catster Club tonight!
Skinner told me that he has to watch over Chelsea Louise because that is his sweetheart. I told him I would help him do that because CL is a pawsome friend girl of mine.
So, if you have a minute, stop by Skinner's page and send his family some love because I know they are going to miss him.
