My Mom opened her e-mail this morning to see that our Catster Plus subsription had been cancelled. Did she not pay the bill ? She became frantic and immediately went to our pages to see if our pages were gone.
It is worse....she almost started to cry.
Catster has become a extended family to us. We laugh,love,and cry with our friends from all over the world. We can not imagine going through our daily life without having Catster in it.
This is truly a sad day for all of us.
Hi Pinkie. It is very sad. We're not losing a website, we're losing a home and friends we have made over many many years.
We are sad too. We haven't been here to play much but it was always comforting to know our pages were here and that our friends were here :(
We have to make sure we find other ways to connect with each other. We are not on Facebook. But looks like we will have to
Catster is different. Like families, there are some disagreements, little spats, and paw batting.
But in the end we still would do anything for each other.
We are not here to play for long periods of time as much as we use to be. Mom still has my birthday page up...MOL But she does check in each day.
Just very very sad....
Pinkie, we LOVE you and your family!
We're sad and our hearts are broken . . .
Mom isn't on FB either but it's probably inevitable that she'll join so she can keep in touch with our Catster friends. If she joins, she'll let everyone know how to contact her there.

We are all upset too, Mom is sick to her stomach she feels like when she lost me, yes this is family and special friends and we can't even imagine not having all of you in our lives to talk to and who understand the depth of our love for our kitties, to be there to support one another....
We are looking into other options too, I did join CatHugger and I am not sure I will stay it isn't anything like Catster but then again I don't think any site will be. I am thinking too that I may have to go to FB and I really really don't want to go there. I am also thinking about doing a blog but not sure of that either.
I will pawmail you to give you my email so we can keep in touch.
we love you all too this is such a sad sad time for us all.
love and hugs
QT and Mom
Pinkie, we all so agree with you and all our other Catster furiends about this. It was really misleading to see the line,
"Big changes are coming to Catster's community areas."
Almost makes it sounds like they are making enhancements. Should have been honest and said,
"We are killing off all the Catster community areas, for what seem like good business reasons, dictated by the almighty dollar."
I am sure that without the community, their site traffic will drop like a rock, and that will so reduce its value to advertisers that it will not survive a year. Very sad for all of us. I do hope that we can find and all agree on a new web home for all of our furiends.
I think we need to do like all close families do and have a Flat Cat'in Family reunion in say Las Vegas aver 3 years or so.
