Two of our Catsters have been in a terrible accident. Their people's house EXPLODED on the 7th. The family was inside. Blazer died in her mommy's arms from fire-related injuries the 9th. Tootsie hasn't been found. We think she ran. Please help me get the word out all over to send them purrrs and purrrayers. It's heartbreaking =(

Here are the links:

My family won't be on much because our computer went belly-up. We're hoping it's not something fatal because we can't afford a new compy right now.
We sure do realize how important it is to us now that we raely have one.

Our purrrs are still with you all.
Mommy will try to sneek in a few moments at work and stuff ;)

Many Purrrrs and Love,

My catfamily memeber Patrick is celebrating his 13th birthday today.
We're all very excited because he wasn't expected to live but a couple months after his CRF diagnoses...and it's been one year and a week since, today !

Anyway, a word from my pal Patrick:

Hi everycat and doggie! I'm really happy to be here well past my original "expiration date" and feeling good and having my birthday!
I'm looking forward to St Patrick's Day now mol!!!

I'd like to thank everyone for the purrrs and purrrayers that have helped me so.
I'd like to thank my pals Winnie and Chester and Taz, Amelia, Rufus, Scooter, Minxy, Hunter and Hazel Lucy for helping me with supplies (and my family as a whole). Thank you anon kitties who sent help to me, too.
Thank you my Guardian Angels Rufus, Minxy and Scooter and my ol pals Biscuit and Black Jack.
Thank you for the cards, toys, gifts and pmails when me and my family were on hard times.
There have been a lot of hard times lately but we'e hanging in there and grateful and don't know how we could've done it without the Catsters.

I literally owe my health to you guys.
I can never find words to express how grateful my family and I are.

But here I am at The Bridge. It's nice, actually. I met up with old pals and met tons of new ones. Many Catster friends of me and my catfamily I've met in purrrrson here...

I'm still very close to my Earthly family and I'm still a very strong presence. I always will be.
I have lots of great kitties I look after both on Earth and here.
(Some don't even know it mol.)
I have my bestie with me, Black Jack.
And my lovely girlfriend Elmo.

Bridge life is good.

We've been off Catster for a couple of days because mom got sick. Again.

She got the flu and it hung on like two weeks...then she finally got over it but was still a little tired. So she figured it would be healthier to drink some fruit juice instead of coffee like usual and bought a guava drink at a local Mexican market.

And got food poisoning.

Well, that's NOT the way to get better!

She's feeling better now and eating some soup for dinner, but she's feeling more tired than she was.
Luckily she's not at her work yet and the kitties took care of her.

Sorry if we took a bit longer to get back to our pmails.
Mama used to like guavas but doesn't like them anymore...

Heavenly Headbonks,


Good News!

Mommy got a temporary job!
It's just a few hours each day and around 175 a week but it gives us something for the next 6 weeks or so, and room to run.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your purrrs and words of encouragement! It's really helped!
=) =) =)
I'm purrring for all those kitties in the north, northeast and midwest stay WARM. Cause it's sure cold!

The Guest.

In September when Patrick's generously donated medical supplies were arriving, mom noticed a big orange tom sitting beside one of the boxes the UPS left. (I wrote about this in my diary.)

I don't believe anyone sent us a kitty. And we don't rememeber ordering one along with Patrick's meds.
Did someone send us a kitty?

Anyway, we was wild and would run out of the yard wen mom went out. However, he seemed to be pals with our two kinda-stray kinda-not outside guys Fuzzy and Squint.

Over the months he's gotten brave enough to sit a few yards away while mom put out food for F and S. He sleeps in the heated cathouse on the gated front porch at night.

Tonite when mom took the bowl of crunchies out for the guys, big orange tom ran up and started eating as mom stood on he porch. She reached down and petted him. He looked up and hissed then started eating again.
She petted him all along his back and scratched his tail root while he ate. Then she went inside.

Four months.

He's all orange, brigher than Little Red. But not yellow. And his eyes are the same color. He's intact but mom doesn't have money to get the snip-snip until she finds a new job. He's a handsome guy.
No one ever claimed him or put up a sign or ad.
No one seems to have missed the big guy at all.

He's still very shy but got all petted tonite.

I guess he should have a name.
I don't know what would be a good name for him...



Mom's Product Reviews!

Ok, so mommy has a good track record for doing reviews on People vote them as helpful.

So, she tried her hand at doing paid reviews. Here is her first under pets/pet supply:

Hi-Tor Neo cat food. OTC food for CRF Cats!

Cats are living longer these days and with that, many are living with CRF (chronic renal failure). While many advances are being made to extend the quality of life, one of the battles has been an appropriate food. Many CRF cats don't care for the script vet diets and weight loss is a common occurance.

These foods come in 6-ounce cans and is sold OTC online. It's cheaper than vet foods and is usually more accepted. To my knowledge this is the only CRF geared food sold OTC.
My cat likes this and when he was getting back on his feet we also used this food in a large syringe for assisted-feeding.
If your cat has been diagnosed with CRF and isn't much into the taste of the vet script foods, Hi-Tor Neo is definately worth a try!

She received this reply:

Ok. Fine.
But here are some reviews that WERE accepted (what the heck?):

Item: Umbrella Cockatoos
by InfoShorts
When we lost our beloved 15 year old umbrella cockatoo, Poppy, I was brokenhearted — and at the same time relieved. This is a bird with the potential to live for 80 to 100 years, and I had been 40 years old when we adopted her...

She reviewed her bird. And was relieved when it died.


Item: A Game of Spies by John Altman
by LP Jardine
Review: This evening I finished reading “A Game of Spies” written by John Altman. I was not quite sure what to expect of this novel. I had never read anything by this author before.
This was a spy novel, set in the time...

A SPY NOVEL got accepted in the pet supply reviews!


Item: Bloat health condition in Dogs
by Nan
Review: I am writing this in hopes that it helps someone learn about this serious health condition in dogs. I have a 13 year old Lab Mix, Rebel. He has always been healthy except for arthritis in his back legs, which is getting worse as he gets older...

A review about a medical condition?'s not really sure what they want reviewed =(

A cat rescue we support is trying to save two loving kitties who will be gassed Monday 1/12.
Please donate and help us get them out of death row. The sanctuary will house and adopt them from there.

Mom is jobless yet we donated $20. We feel that strongly about this!
They need $360. 22% has been raised. The shelter has a good track record for rescues but times are so tough =(
We need to get word out NOW. The clock is ticking.

Posting for Winging Cat Rescue
Caromel and Nougat are 2 sweet cats who have found themselves on death row. They are scheduled to die in a gas chamber on Monday 1/12. WCR is trying to raise funds to save them. No donation is too small. Below are the links to WCR's care2 page and a link to make a donation. Thank you for your help!
