Arrival Story:
Sissy is daughter to our cat, Annabelle. She is a momma's girl, and LUVS her kitty momma! Sis is one of the happiest little souls we have ever known. There is not a mean, jealous or mischievous bone in her body! When you wake her from a nap, she chirps happily!

Sissy is polydactyl! She was born with 2 extra toes on one front paw, and one on the other, that unfortunately had to be removed due to an infection. She also has one extra toe on each back foot, which is rare! Her Daddy calls her twinkle toes, and when she was little, she climbed up everything like a monkey! Now she likes to take play swats at you , always with the polydactyl paw! My sister named her after a character in a book, named Sissy Hankshaw, who was born with extra-large thumbs, and became the world's best hitchhiker! We are thrilled to have this sweet girl as part of our extraordinary cat family. UPDATE: Sissy could use some purrs. She has developed breathing problems due to allergies. This tuff little gal never complains, even when I can tell she feels bad, she does her best to act normal. Love this little girl to pieces.

An Open Letter To Our Catster Friends

To our dear Catster friends....

This will appear in each of our diaries, and I hope it reaches everyone.
We all have been silent for several months, appearing for a few hours, now and then. Some of you know what has been going on, but many probably wonder what has happened to us all. Catster was our second home, and now we are all but ghosts here.

Nearly three months ago now, our grandpaw (Mom's daddy) found out he had lung cancer. While bad, he had the easiest kind to treat, and it had not spread. Grandpaw is 80 years old, and lives alone since grandma died in 1998. For two months, he was in the hospital, and mom had to take care of his house, finances, and still visit him several times a day. She and dad work together, in their small wiring business, and they lost much work during this time. Times have been very tough.

Grandpaw is now home, but needs assistance. Mom is so tired, she can barely think straight. To make matters worse, grandpaw had some unsavory "friends" who have been taking advantage of him. While he was hospitalized, they ran up a thousand dollar gas bill, and a $700 cell phone bill, plus stole items from his house. Mom changed the locks, but no sooner was he home, then grandpaw let them right back in. He is lonely, and thinks they are his friends, but they are not.
There is also a great deal of money missing from his retirement account, and mom and dad are trying to find out where that has disappeared to. That amount is over two hundred thousand dollars. The police are involved, but so far have been of no help.
Mom realizes that grandpaw is no longer able to make responsible judgments, but his doctors say he is competent, so she cannot get power of attorney. We are not sure what will happen next.
So this is where our time has been spent.
It was a hard decision for mom to make, to tell everyone our personal problems, and we will probably delete this entry after it has been viewed.

We want to send special love to those kitties that are our romantic interests, and who have been so patient when they have not heard from their loves in so long. That means you, Kiwi, Zack's beautiful girl, and you Arwen, so kindly waiting for Stinky, and to Annabelle's fiancee, N'bikay, for not rushing the wedding plans, and to Wally, our dear friend, and Sophie's soulmate, who has faithfully been here for all of us, and to our Uncle Oscar, who we all love, and whose mom keeps mine sane, and to our multitude of caring friends, too numerous to list, but all so loved, and so missed.
Thank you for not forgetting us.
We will be back...soon, I hope.

With forever love, purrs, and of course, hugs,
Sissy and Zack, Harry, Riley, Jack, Hannah, Enzo, Sophie, Stinky, Xerox, Angus, Annabelle, Cary, Kate, Queso, Copy, Wally, Lily, Ivy, Charlie, Matilda, Bubba, Pete, Emme, Violet, Claire, Lucy, Kira, DC, Griffin & Lizzy the dog !


Oooh! Dragons!

Thanks Mom, for my new wallpaper!

Mom and I just LOVE dragons!
When she was a little girl, about seven or eight, she drew one for a school contest, and it got picked to be displayed in a downtown bank!

Do you think it's okay for a girl to like dragons? They are not mean dragons. There isn't even any fire...or smoke.
Maybe I should get meaner dragons since it is nearly Howlerween?

I'm going to go to bed now and dream about being a Princess in a magical land...

Nite, Nite, kitties

Dad is taking me to get shot. I'm done for...What's that, Momma, oh, shots, I'm not sure I like that much better...
Well, that wasn't so bad. Our vet uses that new pnuematic shot thingy, and it shoots the vaccines under the skin with air! No needles! I growled a little, but it didn't hurt. Dad says I'm good for another year. Does that mean I have to be good for a whole year??? See Ya, Sissy
