I am Cat of the Day! Whee! Thank you, Catster! I certainly didn't expect to wake up this morning to find I have been remembered in such a nice way!

It's been FOREVER since I posted a diary, so maybe I should say how things are going here. I am doing well. I still take my heart meds efurry day, but the cardiologist says my heart is unremarkable at this point - not too big, not too small, not beating too fast or slow, all is copacetic.

I am an honorary Olde Furt this month, but I'm really still a young'un. I purrfer to spend my days inside now, although I'll take a quick walk around the outside of the house every so often. I like playing with our Cat Dancer and our Undercover Mouse, and helping the Mama read by sitting on her chest in front of the pages. I also like snoozing on the couch. Leo is my buddy now. I still whack him occasionally, but it's just out of affection. We have a new little bother named Sam, but he doesn't mess with me too much - he'd rather pester Sid and Lady, which is just fine!

I am furry glad the Catster community is being rescued, because once upon a time the smart cats here helped save my life. This community is an incredibly valuable resource and there is nothing else like it on the internet that allows animals and their pawrents to share their knowledge with one another in organized discussions that DON'T GO AWAY. In most social media the confursations are fleeting and hard to search - two or three days later you can't find what you're looking for. But in Catster and Dogster forums the infurmation is there purrmanently, and can be very highly organized by topic if the group admins are diligent. We can't ever allow all that accumulated knowledge to disappear! So it was good that we had a "fire drill" over the past few weeks with the announcement that the communities were closing, because it alerted lots of us to the need to back up the data we contributed and maintained, and lots of our pawrents worked furry hard to do just that. But it's even better that Catster and Dogster are staying exactly where they belong, so we ALL continue to know where to find one another to share impurrtant infurmation - and to have fun as well.

I'd like to close this entry by asking fur purrs fur my furiend Macy, who is having ongoing problems with FLUTD, crystals and infection. I hope his vet can solve this issue for him.

Bonks and struts,
