Mom's Product Reviews!

January 12th 2009 11:18 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

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!

You guys are our family.
Family is very important in hard times.

What would we do without you?

We certainly can't leave our family and friends here on Catster!
We are staying put =)

Mom's taking a deep breath.
She's come down with a fever and sore throat but instead of getting more depressed, she decided it's nature's way of telling her to stop acting like a nut and relax. She's putting some job applications in by email, having some hot tea, and the kitties are purrring.

She just called the hospice and grandma's quietly asleep.

The kitties are doing good.

Thank you for your purrrrs and purrrrayers.
Gonna chill out over the weekend but we're right here.



Trying to Think Straight =(

Thank you for your nice pmails and emails and for your support.

Mom is thinking maybe we'll just take some brief time off and not leave Catster altogether. Not delete the accounts.

To be honest, this is like the only family we really have left now...
and family is very important in difficult times.

We don't want to lose you.
We don't want to go =)

Please forgive mommy, she's just been very upset and not thinking straight.

Purrrrs and thank you for bearing with us.



We're Leaving Catster for a While

I just wanted to let everycat know.
IWe didn't want to just disappear and make everycat wonder what happened or that we were upset over something.

Everycat has been so kind to me and my family. I cannot put it into meows how grateful we all are.

Human grandma is very sick and mom lost her job yesterday. The job market is bleak and we have no safety net.
Lots of people and kitties are in the same boat these days, losing it all.
We're just one of many families.

It's too difficult to put our minds on anything, right now.

I just don't know what else to say.
Maybe some other day and time, we'd like to come back and have fun again.

My family and I love you from the bottoms of our hearts and Black Jack and I promise to still watch over all of the kitties.
We will always love our girlfriends and boyfriends and crushes (you know who you are).
We love our friends forever.


PS, Christopher's blog Christopher's Groove is being closed. I don't think anycat reads it anyway mol.

I hope efurrryone is having a good Thanksgiving whether it be small or huge. Earthly or at The Bridge.

Thanksgiving is a little bittersweet as it's the 2 year anniversary of my friend Toot Suite's passing. Little did my mom know but the very next day, on the 28th, both Black Jack and I would also leave for The Bridge. Together.

Toot was there with our angelfriends to welcome us.

On the eve of our first Bridge Anniversary, last year on this date, my dear friend McKenna started on her journey. She was there to help us ring in the year...just as Toot had greeted Black Jack and I, we greeted McKenna.

We have quite a crew up here now.

Thank you so much for the holiday rosettes and gifts. From our old friends and our new =)

Purrrs to those under the weather.
Purrrrs of healing and comfort and warmth. Get well soon and have some turkey (or ham, or fish, or a bite of babyfood).
And gentle open paws to those on their Bridge journey.

Thank you kitties for letting me and Black Jack be your watchful Guardians.
Thank you for watching over us as well (you know who you are mol).
And Thank you for help in watching over my Earthy family

Biscuit (and Black Jack)

I was going to undertake the task of sending every friend and corralled kitty on my lists a Halloween greeting with an animated scene. Because I have well over 2,000 on my lists, I was going to use the free Febreeze rosette to send my holiday wishes.
About 25 minutes into clicking my thumbnails (I was only halfway thru) the giftpage disappeared and when I went back to begin again, the Febreeze rosette was gone =(

I guess no more freebies...

I am so very sad because I thought it would be super fun to send out so many greetings. I was going to use the "Anonymous" so allll those icons wouldn't be on my page or history (not that I mind but over 2k of them would be HUGE) but I was going to sign it and link my page.

Well, I guess I'll have to say it here and hope everycat reads it:


*is disappointed about his spoiled grand idea*

Meowies and Heavenly Headbonks,


Thank you for voting for Christopher!

Big Meows for the good news for our friend Althea. She's feeling much better and her anemia is saying bye bye! She's having a vacation in her woodland cabin and I'm hoping for some pretty pics =)
Our Patrick is feeling good, too. He has a little tear in his eye and a sneeze now and then today but we're purrring it's nothing.

I think he'll be just fine! Thank you to all his pals for helping him with his medical supplies and helping him to live and thrive. We owe it all to YOU who provided so generously! We've been sending out cards I hope you're receiving them =) We have another food shipment on the way (auto-ship ROCKS)!

Emma's Surgery ~ Helpful Links

We only have ten days left till the end of my doggie pal Emma's fundraiser raffle. for her surgery. She's about 1/4 way there. Little Emma was born with birth defects/cleft palate. (She would so very much like to eat real food instead of mushy stuff thru a tube.)

This is a HQ approved fundraiser and has some really great gifties up for raffle (I mean some COOL pet stuff and a COACH PURSE for the mommy)!
Please take a look at the page Emma's Raffle

Also, Forever Franklin is holding a raffle for her on his Forever Franklin Fund page. It's called "Emma's Smile" and again, really cool prizes for just $5 a ticket. (Heck, even my mommy could afford that mol!)

*Franklin helped Dogster Casper raise funds for his heart surgery~Casperis home now and recovering. Drop him and Franklin some treats ok!*

I know times are tough. The economy stinks. Trust me, we know.
But we are giving back to those in need the way others helped us in need.

If you can't help Emma with $$ (and Emma certainly understands) please take a moment to stop by EMMA'S PAGE, read her story, and leave her lots of rosettes and treats and gifts and join her group Friends of Emma.

Woohoo I hope all my links work mol!
Bless you all and Sweet Dreams,
