Okay I need to join in on the discussion about the new Catster.
It was a real shockaroo the first day we saw the new Catster. We had been given a warning that changes were coming but admit we were stunned at just how different it became.
That said, meowmie has oftened been amazed at just how much space (computer-wise) each member kitty gets on their home page, how much historic storage of paw-mails and the like, and just how many hundreds of thousands of cats are members. Like, the Community was Catster and who were Diary Gal and Ted? They really were way in the background some where and all the good stuff was happening up front in Catsterland, a safe, happy place to hang out. When mewomie found Catster she felt like she fell through the rabbit hole to a magic world inhabited by wonderful cats.
We're guessing Ted and company had no idea what they created. The cats and (mostly) their meowmies all knew how to play nice, give treats, and rally to those in need. We should all be furry furry proud of ourselves.
And now the "secret" of Catsterland is out in the world. When a pride is threatened by an unwelcome intruder it hisses, spits and chases off the intruder. We are confident that anycat or their human who cannot play nice will be chased out. This is our meowmie's criteria for us - it must be safe.
We're not crazy about the graphics, or the white background, and really really miss the front page link to the Cat's Meow. But! If we can all continue to be nice, do nice and believe nice, Catster will survive the makeover even if it is not simply cosmetic. As long as our communication and dedication remain, the Catster pride will survive.

I think my meowmy would be in agreement!
Us kitties will NOT change along with our pawrents who write things that we dictate fur them, even if the rest does.
Pipo and Minko
Well purred, my friend :)
It is our friends like YOU that make Catster a special place.
Hopefully they will get things straightened out.
