Six years ago today we found this place. My PaPa Buddy was the one who found it. Buddy was blogging and from on kibby blogger to another met Karma Kitty. Went to check her site out and read about Catster and followed the link to Catster and, as they say, the rest is history.
And oh boy, is there ever history!!..looking back and thinking of the first days and weeks and even months here brings a tear to mai little green eyes.
Lots of our furineds our Angels now *bows head and sheds some tears* others not here very musch and still some gone altogether..this is the sad one..why did you have to leave? It's just not the same without them!!
Meowmy tells me things do change but the memories live on..and yes they do!!
I have a bunch of new furineds and a few really close chums I think are pawsitevlly pawtastic!!
but let me just stay on mai wonnerfur memories of days gone by...that is when I was a younger whipper snapper..oh I'm still young!!..not slowing down any..not this guy!!
I learned so musch bach then and alla the kibbies were so helpful and if you didn't understand somfin, you just asked and someone would always help..not this "well so and so does it for me"....HMmmm..that's not helpful in the least bit
That is why I am soo glad I came here in the golden days!!! I stay and act like myself from back then..I always want every kibbie to feel spawcil and beautiful...all kibbies are equal in every way to me!!...
I just love to help a kibbie feel spawcil and so I make picshurs fur dem..helping to make memories!!
Cuz in the end that is all we're left with is memories.
I want to share the link to Buddy's blog..we hadn't been there in so long..Meowmy can't remember how to get in and access it..but oh did we laugh and smile big when we were reading it and going thru it!!
Hope you enjoy it!! And Thank You Catster for helping us to make beautiful memories here 6 years now...and many more years to come!! Love you Catster and Thank You!!
now if that doesn't work we just typed in Buddy's Space the Grooviest Spot Around and followed that link!

Tomorrow is my 8th birthday, already ~ time flies so fast!! I am thankful I can celebrate it here at Catsterland wif alla my wonnerfur furiends. I have many great furiends and a few close besties and alla of them have enriched my life and experience here.
You can say I have grown up on Catster. I had just turned 2 when we found this place and joined up. So this is number six birthday fur me here. What a lucky boy I am.
I may be overlooked by others while they choose to their liking honors they bestow upon fellow kibbies, and that's ok wif me..here on Catster, as I grew up with, I want my legacy to be one of a kind, gentle, loving kibbie who treated everyone with kindness, fairness and equality. Let's face it, almost all of us were at one time abandend, neglected, unwanted and unloved. Not all kibbies find furever homes, but I did. I am soo thankful, too. I have had my health issues and you just never know what the future holds. So I will continue on my way, being a true orangie...friendly, helpful, loving, kind and gentle. I love to help make a fellow kibbie's day a little brighter here on Catster..I am learning how to make pictures and try my best to make them nice and purrty fur the kibbies special days here at Catsterland. Now they may not be as fancy as some others, but they are made with care, thoughtfulness and love..all the way from my little heart.
So, tomorrow I will turn 8 years old...hope I have more birthdays here at Catsterland..if you like, stop in and have a piece of my birthday cake...I just love to share with alla of the kibbies here at Catsterland!!

I was going through my older stuff from Catster from years ago and came across a bunch of poems and stories…I’m glad I kept them..they touched me then as now..and so I pass this one onto new members who may never of had the privilege to read this before…for us older members hopefully this will remind you of our younger years here at Catster…I remember when things like this was shared to all and we all cared and loved one another, as we do now..so here is one that always brings a tear to my eyes and touches my heart furry deepy….
Ugly the Tom Cat (Unknown Author)
Everyone in the apartment complex I lived in knew who Ugly was. Ugly was the resident tom cat. Ugly loved three things in this world: fighting, eating garbage and, shall we say, love.The combination of these things combined with a life spent outside had their effect on Ugly. To start with, he had only one eye, and where the other should have been, there was a hole. He was also missing his ear on the same side. His left foot appeared to have been badly broken at one time and had healed at an unnatural angle, making him look like he was always turning the corner.
Ugly would have been a dark grey tabby, stripped type, except for the sores covering his head, neck, and even his shoulders. Every time someone saw ugly there was the same reaction, “That’s one UGLY cat!!!”. All the children were warned not to touch him, the adults threw rocks at him, hosed him down, squirted him when he tried to come in their homes, or shut his paws in the door when he would not leave. Ugly always had the same reaction.If you turned the hose on him, he would stand there, getting soaked until you gave up and quit. If you threw things at him, he would curl his lanky body around your feet in forgiveness.Whenever he spied children, he would come running, meowing frantically and bump his head against their hands, begging for their love. If you ever picked him up he would immediately begin sucking on your shirt, earrings, whatever he could find.
One day Ugly shared his love with the neighbor’s dogs. They did not respond kindly, and Ugly was badly mauled. I tried to rush to his aid. By the time I got to where he was laying, it was apparent Ugly’s sad life was almost at an end.
As I picked him up and tried to carry him home, I could hear him wheezing and gasping, and could feel him struggling. It must be hurting him terribly, I thought. Then I felt a familiar tugging, sucking sensation on my ear. I pulled him closer to me, and be bumped the palm of my hand with his head, then he turned his one golden eye towards me, and I could hear the distinct sound of purring.Even in the greatest pain, the ugly little scarred cat was asking only for a little affection, perhaps some compassion. At that moment I thought Ugly was the most beautiful, loving creature I had ever seen. Never once did he try to bite or scratch me, try to get away from me, or struggle in any way. Ugly just looked up at me completely trusting in me to relieve his pain.
Ugly died in my arms before I could get inside, but I sat and held him for a long time afterwards, thinking about how one scarred, deformed little stray could so alter my opinion about what it means to have true pureness of spirit, to love so totally and truly. Ugly taught me more about giving and compassion than a thousand books, lectures or talk show specials ever could. And for that I will always be thankful. He had been scarred on the outside, but I was scarred on the inside, and it was time for me to move on and learn to love truly and deeply – to give my total to those I care for.Many people want to be richer, more successful, well liked, beautiful and they boast about how much they can do…but me…I will always try to be UGLY.
