When you've been at the bridge for three weeks like I have, the Committee Manager comes and asks if you want to be on a committee.
I decided that the Welcome Committee sounded like fun. Today was my first day on the job. I was given a big sign that had Catster written on it.
When a cat is making their journey to the bridge, and they are about to approach the gate, the rainbow flashes on and off. That is the signal for the Welcome Committee and all the angels to get in place.
When I saw the rainbow flashing, I grabbed my Catster sign and went to the main gate. There were other committee members holding signs too . . . . . I Can Has Cheezeburger, LOL Cats, Strays.
It was really crowded today, and I was looking to see if any Catster pals were coming through the gate. And then I saw her . . . . . Lola was Kung Fu dancing through the gate and getting her heart basket.
I waved my Catster sign and she came running over to meet me. I told her I really didn't want to see her, but since she was here, we were going to have a pawsome time until we see our families again one day!
And then Scooter and SooLing came by, and I knew Lola was going to be just fine.
Dang, she has the biggest blue eyes!

Wowza, I think the Diary Gal likes me more as an angel because she has been picking me a lot lately!
It is a pretty cool view up here at the bridge, and the bestest part is being able to check on all my pals when I go to the Internet Cafe'. Since there are so many Catsters up here, we have to sign up for computer time. If you don't get a turn one day, then you find out all the scoop when you go to The Catster Club at night.
And you thought being at the rainbow was one big catnap! We do get in some major snooze time, but there is a lot to do with being a guardian angel and stuff like that.
So, today I want to tell you about some pals that you need to think about this week.
The first one is Scooter's sister, Lola. She is pulling a Calvin and not eating like she should. Her parents are very concerned about her, and we sure don't need her up here yet, so keep her in your purrs!
Then there is our pal, Louis LeBeau who is going to have surgery on the 24th to remove a bump that shouldn't be on his side. His Mommy is very worried, so I know he would appreciate some purrs.
Of course, I'm keeping a special watch over Gleek. I sure didn't teach him right on the art of pill taking. He has been taking his pills without much of a fuss. What is wrong with him? Doesn't he know you're supposed to hide the pill in your cheek and then spit it out? He won't know much about what condition his condition is in until he finishes up three weeks' worth of pills.
We're having a birthday party today for Jules Vern. I hear there is going to be a brusselball tournament, so I've got to get going!
Oh, and I wanted to let Mawmee know that the beautiful orange sky she has been seeing at night for the past week are courtesy of me!

I knew that the best cat to wear a Calvin Collar would be a cat named Calvin!
Check out my little namesake in his Christmas Calvin Collar that I sent him! Isn't he the most adorable kitty ever?
I wanted to remind all my pals who have Calvin Collars to be sure to tag the picture of you wearing it with the words Calvin Collar.
I think Diego was the pawsome pal who came up with that idea, and it makes it easy for me to see all my pals in one place. And, Mawmee can grab your picture and make you a star on her Cat in the Clover blog.
Be sure to stop over at the blog and check out all the cool pictures!
And if you go over there and look at today's entry, you'll see a pawsome painting that was done by Klancy and Kosmo, Kramer, and Tiny Krazy's Mommy! Wasn't that super duper nice of her to do? It made Mawmee cry.

Did you see the handsome Calvin that is Dog of the Day today? That is probably what I would look like if I were a dog. If you have doggie siblings, get them over to Calvin's page and ask him to be friends!
I think cats should be allowed to be friends with dogs. Well, maybe some dogs. Like a dog named Calvin. I would be friends with him. Maybe I should ask him to join the Cool Calvin Club!

I got another bridge secret for you, so keep it on the downlow and don't tell anycat you heard it from me.
There is a weekly newspaper here at the bridge. We can submit articles if we want. There is a Diary Gal with a column called Dear Tabby.
A bunch of us new angels wrote to Dear Tabby this week and asked her if she had any connections to the Catster Diary Gal. It turns out that she is the fifth cousin of the Catster Diary Gal's third cat. It's kind of like that Six Degrees of Separation from Kevin Bacon.
She said she would see what she could do to get some of us new angels recognized as diary picks. She came through for us because Angel Smokey and I are both diary picks today!
Thanks to all my pals for the rosettes and pmails. I'm glad the Diary Gal saw the importance of making sure everycat knew about the new Calvin in town!

Meet Calvin! Isn't he the cutest little ball of fur you've ever seen?
Now, get over and ask him to be friends with you - he is going to need a lot of help growing up!
Welcome to Catster, and your forever home, little pal . . . . . . . .

Being at the bridge means lots of surprises for me and for my family! Today Mawmee was going to be out for awhile, and she didn't want my special ornament or my ashes to get messed with by you-know-who, so she took them and put in the little gift bag that my ornament came in.
Guess what was in the bag that she completely missed yesterday? A small baggie with a lock of my hair tied in a ribbon. My name was written on the bag and a little heart was drawn on the bag too.
She said, ahhhhhhhh . . . . . . and it made her feel happy and sad.
My vet rocks . . . . . . . . .

Being at the bridge means keeping secrets. Today, a secret was revealed to Mawmee. After I made my journey to the bridge, my vet stuck my paw in goop and made a pawprint heart keepsake for my family. It was okay that she did that because I was already at the rainbow in my new, kick-tail body (as Boogers would call it)!
Mawmee was very surprised when the vet called her today, and told her that she had something for her. When she picked it up at the vet's office, it made her feel happy and sad at the same time.
You can see a picture of it on Mawmee's blog.
My vet rocks!

Well, I've been through my orientation, and I found out a lot more secrets about the Rainbow Bridge and how things work around here. Of course, some stuff I'm not allowed to tell you about, or they make you go to the doggie area and scoop poop for a day. Yeah, heaven ain't all it's cracked up to be if you don't obey all the rules!
But I do have a secret I can tell you that I can'really tell you about until it's been told by the official family.
There is a new orange kitty in town. Not my hometown, but a town.
The new orange kitty has green eyes . . . . . . and is very cute.
The new orange kitty with the green eyes has a new forever home, and the Mommy of the forever home wants to name the kitty Calvin!
She asked my Mawmee if it was okay, and Mawmee said it would be an honor if that cute kitty was given my name.
Of course, that is extra work for me because now I've got to watch over that squirt and make sure he grows up to be an Olde Furt!
Be looking for him soon . . . . . . . . . .

Oh my cats, who knew there was an Internet Cafe' at the bridge?
I thought I'd better check in and tell my pals what I know before my orientation tonight because I have a feeling I'm gonna be told to keep this stuff a secret.
I sat on the Top Cat's warm lap on my journey here. He told me everything was going to be okay, and he would see me later. When I got to the Golden Gate, there were a gazillion friendly faces there to greet me! Everycat was waving and smiling at me!
I immediately was taken to the Welcome Center where I got my heart basket that I already told you about. The gal in charge made me take a number - mine is 1026 - that is my number for seeing the Top Cat, so it will be awhile before I get to sit down with him.
Then I was given my Orientation Packet and sent to Human Resources. Dang, they got this process down! My orientation packet had a green paw band. We all wear paw bands of different colors that tells how long we've been here. That way, if you have a question about something, you look for the cat with a higher color than yours.
Next up was getting measured for my wings. That is when I got to see Autumn because she is in charge of that job. My orientation is tonight, and I'm glad that I've got Icebox here to go with me. I sure was sorry that she made her journey to the bridge yesterday, but we can figure things out together.
Inside my packet was a huge map of this place! You wouldn't believe all the cool places I'm going to be exploring. I even saw a Tiki Bar on the map!
There was also my Catster membership card on a lanyard. There is a giant Catster Club where all us Catster pals chillax in the evening. You have to show your membership card to get in. I immediately put that around my neck because I wanted to show everycat how proud I am to be a Catster!
Guess who isn't here? That evil chick Ann Emia, and her cousins Dan Druff, Flo Jectile, and the high Billy Ruben! They aren't allowed. Somecat told me they are banned to the basement, and we don't have a key to go there, so I'm glad about that!
I wanted to thank you all again for being such a good pal to me. You probably won't hear from me for awhile because I need to spend time with all my angel pals. I'm sorry that I wasn't around to tell you about my Pal of the Week, Onyx, but before I left, I asked Violet to tell you about her. So, be sure to check out Violet's diary tomorrow.
When I return, I'll be starting up an Angel Pal of the Week! There are so many Catster angels that you don't know about, and I need to tell you about them so they aren't ever forgotten . . . . . just like I don't want you to ever forget me!
I'll chat with you later, and who knows, I might have a whole new dictionary of bridge words for you!
