I finally got to met the one and only TYSON
He's one famous cat here, not only does he do therapy work, making so many peoples days a little brighter. He has also been photographed by a famous pet photographer. Tyson and his family feature in the book 'Why dogs are better than cats"
So he's pretty famous in here New Zealand...... not to mention on Catster too.
There is a photo of me saying hello,
I can't believe he came to visit me, I'm so honoured.
I better run lots to do. Purrs For now
BTW if you haven’t' checked out Tysons page you should. Check out all the pawsome things he has done. And all the cool photos, he's been Donkey riding, ridden bikes, all sorts.

Meow... thank you so much for voting for me. I'm in shock that I'm there in the finals. There were some pawsome photos. I kind of feel a little guilty too. As we can't win any prizes I hope we haven't taken that opportunity away from some other deserving kitty.
We have entered before in the last two years but never ever got into the finals. It was always fun just to show off our photos. So to have two in this years finals is such a shock.
So I just wanted to say a huge thank you and big whisker kisses from me purrs Mr D. I'm jumping around telling everyone here. I'm top I'm top, top of the family. Hee hee.
One thing I noticed for this year. There wasn't that much advertising and we didn't get cats entering that just joined Catster just to enter the competition then never post again. Also previous years we would have to be aware of fake cats (stolen photos). I noticed there wasn't really any of that this year. Which was great, BUT the numbers were down in the entries. The human almost managed to vote for every cat, I think there were almost 2900 entries. It was a bummer she had a lot of work and spent most of that time out of the country (unable to get to a catputer). We are just going to have to be a little more prepared for next year.
My family and I, would to take the opportunity to conCATulate all the finalist.
There were some amazing photos there and we have enjoyed looking over them all and voting. I would like to congratulate those that entered too. As you all had pawsome shots which all equalled precious memories. Each having a story to tell. We totally enjoyed looking over them all and reading all the stories. Laughing at many of the captions, they were precious and really added to the photos. That’s maybe why it took us days and days to get through the votes we did do.
I wish every the best and good luck to all the finalist.

I just read an article on trying to stop cats spraying around the house.
In that article it had a list of things to have in your kits for when things like that happen.
If you are like us, occasionally the humans goes around on her hands and knees smelling the room (this is if she thinks she gets a hint of a pee smell)
Furmum Raza has been known to put her sent around the place especially at this time of the year (it's spring here and the Toms are roaming)
Anyway one of the things in the kit is........
A BLACK LIGHT
Well I never. The human said she should have known that, as she has seen it on TV a few times. Apparently the black light will show up urine (even old ones)
Well the humans off today to buy one, she said it may be handy just to have in the house. It'll save all those hours on the floor sniffing everywhere.
Or she follows us around to see if WE sniff any area, as we are pretty good at spotting things like that.
It doesn't happen that often, but it does happen at least once a year. Hee hee this year Raza got the humans trousers that were hanging on the door. Long story on that one, your have to see Sam's diary for that story. Hee hee.

The human has started packing for our holiday. Mind you I wouldn't call it a holiday, I don't want to go anywhere.
Boy!!! the cattery is going to wonder what they got themselves in for.
The cages are out, mainly because we have all been going to the vet clinic a few times in the last month.
But there is now a list of things we get to take. Raza will get to take her favourite toy, the large cat tube. There are lots and lots of small toys especially Sam's favourite bunch. Hee hee, she has lots.
I don't really have any favourite toys. I have taken to a wooden cat house, so that will go with me. It's suppose to be big enough for 2 cats but the humans put a large bed in it and it just fits me purrrrfectly.
Sam has a soft cat house, and we all take turns on the deck chair with the boogie mat on it. So they will go with us too.
Balty has to have his heated bed (they have a plug in the cage to plug it in) and the humans would like our drinking fountain to go too, but they didn't seem to be too keen on that. We'll see paws crossed we get to have that too.
About Balty's bed they did say they will need to turn it off at night, but they will crank up the heating for him as we are in the heated area of the Cattery. We have a door in our cage with a cat door so we can go out to our own little wire enclosed deck, so we can still get fresh air.
The humans are trying to tell us we'll have fun ...... Hummm I don't think so..... who’s she kidding.
You should see the humans list...
The cat gym
maybe a wooden ramp (so Balty can at least get up to the first large wide shelf ( it runs the length to the cage))
5x cat beds (one each and one spare to rotate to)
2 cat houses
Maybe a small cat tree
Cat tube (probably the large one (we have 2))
rescue remedy (the feline one)
the Catit drinking fountain
4 x Cats
Food as they will all get Hills S/D and they will also get Canin urinary S/O so they have variety.
Maybe Marmite if Sam's not drinking enough.
Fresh catnip, maybe take a hanging plant for the outdoor enclosure. For fresh catnip.
How can we tell her she doesn’t need all of this stuff, she just needs to stay home and have another staycation. You wouldn’t believe it, I think the cattery stay will cost more than the humans trip itself.
BUT…. us cats do come first, and that’s the way it should be…... Us first.

Today we lost a dear friend in our Auckland Zoo.
Kashin the elephant was given her wings today. Many many New Zealanders will know Kashin.
She was always a must to see and when the human was young she would take children for rides. The human has also photographed her (like many did when they went to the Zoo). She was amazing, it was almost as if she saw the camera and posed for the photograph.
They locked eyes, then the human took the shots, she couldn't help but bow her head to say thanks. She really felt drawn to her.
Kashin touched so many. She will be sadly missed.
The humans are 45 and 46 and it was like they grew up, always hearing about her. They owned elephant piggy banks with Kashins name on it, when they were children. Then again when the bank celebrated 50years of being open (last year) they re-released the Kashin piggy bank. The human managed to get a couple to give to her niece and nephew, like it was when they were kids. So Kashin has always been in the hearts of many NZders since she graced us with her presence 36 years ago.
She was always a draw card at the Auckland Zoo. We have a Video (that the human took) of her last year surrounded by Children. The humans Brother, Niece and Nephew were right by her trunk sitting on the ground.
She was such a gentle giant, may she rest in peace.
Now the human is kicking herself for not going to the ‘Have breakfast with the Elephants’ It was a couple of months ago. It was for raising money, but the interaction with the animals is so worth it.
She did ‘Take the cheetahs for a morning walk before the Zoo opens’. She said that was fun. Hee hee, one time when the human wasn’t looking, she was sitting on a seat and the Cheetah was one the table, the Cheetah sniffed the humans’ head. Apparently she jumped a mile high. Again she kicked herself she would have loved a photo of herself that close to the puddy tat.
When she came home I sniffed her all over, I sensed she had been patting another fur, how dare she. I fluffed up and said I’ll take on the other fur…. until she told me how big they were, then I decided, may be another day.
Purrs Mr D and many purrs for Kashin
Here’s the link to the story

I want to thank everyone that read and answered the humans request. She received some fantastic information. I think she said she wanted to say ....ok he's at this point, and be ready for it. Than go, Oh no!! what does this mean. It's all helping us a lot, so thank you, to all the lovely furs out there.
I told the human she can share my diary, but she thought it was better if she deleted her request as Catster is really only for us cats and not for her. She has save all the good info and advice onto the catputer and forward a lot of it on to her fathers partner. So thanks again to all that p-mailed her and left diary comments, we have all of it saved.
We hope every fur is having a pawsome day, most of you will be seeing your summer. I hope it's not too hot for you. We will see our shortest day on the 21 June, then it gets colder but at least the day gets longer yippeee!!! I can't wait. I think the human now likes the cold, she's kind of just figured it out.... Hee hee, we now stay inside more, and we are easier to get in at night. Hee hee.
We do think Catsters a fantastic place, there are sooooooo many kind and friendly furs here, with an amazing amount of knowledge to share. Where else can you meet so many nice cat/people.
Lots of purrs headbutts and whisker kisses from us

No more peeing, (I mean on the humans bed) the human is so happy she is jumping with joy. AND I'm jumping with joy I've finished the round of meds she's was making me take.
I only peed and pooed once, so I'm glad she got the hint and I didn't have to do it again.
I'm still on the S/D biscuits and will need to go back to the clinic for a follow up. So paws crossed all is well. I'm not to keen on the clinic and I howl all the way there.
I have to say........
Catsters fantastic... it's great we can all pull all the info we have and learn from each other. Not to mention all the pawsome friends you met on the way.
Many purrs and whisker kisses to you all, purrs the D-my-ster

The human has finally the time to go around thanking everyfur for the rosettes, gifts and stars. She was so busy last week working through the night and day with so little sleep that when she finally finished what she was doing, she would go straigt to bed after work for the next few nights to catch up.
But now we have another problem we have a mystery gift on all our pages. Some lovely fur gave us some wine glasses and we don't know who. So we'll have to say it here......... thank you to the mystery cat or dog. You are very kind to us, big purrs from all of us purrs Sam, Raza, Balty and me Mr D
