Arrival Story:
After Rufus' brother died, we went to a different shelter looking for a new companion for him. Bob seemed cute, but not too bright. When we took him out of the cage and put him on the table he walked right off the edge! We decided to take him but after his exam they told us we'd have to come back the next day since he had fleas and needed a dip. When we went back to the cage to say goodbye, he looked so miserable. He was huddled up in the corner with his head hung in shame. We named him Bobcat because of his face (he has a majestic fluffy tail). The next day we took him home and locked him in the kitchen for the night. After my brother turned out the lights, we heard the most pathetic high pitched mewing. My brother couldn't believe his manly, mighty Bobcat had such a girly voice. That's when I knew that Bob was part Maine Coon.

Bio:
Bob was diagnosed with CRF in January of 2010. The vet also suspected he had GI lymphoma. With treatment we were able to stabilize his kidneys, but it seems to have taken a toll on his heart. On the night of April 18, 2011 Bob would not engage with us and seemed to be breathing rapidly. We took him to the ER and were shocked when they told us he was in heart failure. After a chest X-ray confirmed the diagnosis, we made the tough decision to help him cross over. Shortly after 1 AM on April 19, 2011, Bob joined Rufus at the Rainbow Bridge. Fly free, Fluffy Angel. Love is Forever.

My Heart Will Go On

10 years. It’s been 10 years since I joined Catster on July 1, 2006.

I had been looking for an online support group because Rufus had feline lymphoma. When I stumbled across Catster and found all of these people posting in their cats’ voices, from their cats’ point of view, I thought they must all be crazy! But as I read on, I knew I could do the same for Rufus, and that’s when I realized, they were my kind of crazy.

10 years of ups and downs, good times and sad times, but never bad times as long as we had each other. Now all of it is coming to an end. Briana has joined the Here Kitty forum and Pets4Pals, but we all know it’s not the same. She’s made 18, but is on the last of her 9 lives. I know you understand what a difference a friendly ear and a few words of encouragement can make at a time like this. I will miss having that from my Catster friends.

Remember when our furkids went to the Rainbow Bridge, we said they became Angels and went on to “live their 10th life” on Catster? Well, I feel like Rufus and Bob are dying again. There will be no “11th life” for them on another site. How could there be? So many years of memories, both treasured and all-but-forgotten, going, going. . . gone?

I’m saving what I can on the Internet Archive - pages of diaries, extra special diary entries with posted comments (remember those?), some of our friends’ pages, but it’s not nearly enough. What about forum and group threads? Rosettes, gifts, and stars? We were promised Forever Stars!

In closing, I’d like to thank the countless people and cats who touched my life on Catster over the years. After Rufus died, the song I chose to have on his page (back when we could still do that) was Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On:

“Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go ‘til we’re gone.”

Love is Forever,
Liz

 

Word of the Day

The Word of the Day is Mine.

Mine (pronoun)- that which belongs to me. A word a human uses to mark her territory and belongings instead of hissing and spraying.

When Momma got in a cat fight with the woman in line behind her at Boston Market who tried to claim Momma's turkey, Momma repeatedly said "MINE" until the workers and the woman got the message.

Nobody beats Momma in a cat fight. We taught her well.

My . . . *gasp* . . . pictures! *gasp* They're all . . . *gasp* . . . gone! *gasp*

I'm . . . *gasp* . . . hyperventilating here! *gasp*

Note from Momma:

Me . . . *gasp* . . . too! *gasp*

This is all . . . *gasp* . . . Not-the-Momma's . . . *gasp* . . . fault . . . *gasp* . . . for making me . . . *gasp* . . . change Bob's picture. *gasp*

(We checked the All Paws Bulletin group and they said there was some problem with the Catster Plus Photobook. It's only giving you 20 pictures instead of 200 or something. But now we're only getting 10. It's messed up! Pmailing HQ.)

Back to Bob:


UNhappy . . . *gasp* . . . Talk . . . *gasp* . . . Like a Pirate . . . *gasp* . . . Day! *gasp*
