Putting up a quick journal in the twilight hours of Catster:

If you'd like to see pictures of me and my housemates (and the shelter pets my human mom works with) - she has something called an "Instagram".

pur rs and head bonks always,


One last word: UnitedCats!

Hi everycat. Maus again!

In our quest to try and find a "new Catster", my meowmy found one that looks pretty promising! It's called UnitedCats, and it has both a cat AND a dog area of the site! Just like this one! Here's my profile - pardon the dust!:

We may never be able to recreate the great community here, but we can sure as heck try!

purrs and headbutts,



Oh, Catster, say it isn't so..

Maus' "human" here.
We are devastated, to say the least, about the impending shutdown of Catster. Catster (and Dogster) were once fantastic communities of animal loving people and their pets. We learned so much from this website, and met so many great people, through "talking" as our pets.

If "anycat" still wants to keep in touch after Catster, there's a few ways to do it!

- I use Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook. If any of you want to stay in touch that way, drop me a message here or email ( I'd hate to lose contact with all the great Catsters I've met over the years.

- There is also CatScouts, which I use "as" Maus:

If there are any alternative communities, please let us know.
It's been fun!

Purrs and headbutts, and signing off:

Pill pockets, and Hyper thyroids?

Hi everycat! It's been awhile since I wrote something here, yikes!

Last week, I had to visit the dreaded V E T , cause I was havin trouble doing .. er.. poop, in the litterbox! It's a little embarassing but there are times when I have trouble going, and I've had to go to the V E T more than once for a little "help".
(I don't like to talk about it much. I don't like when they stick things back there!!)

It was decided that the V E T should steal my blood, since I was there anyway. They not only stuck me in the behind, but they stuck me in my leg too. What nerve!

anyway, to make a long story short, the results of the tests they ran said that I have something called hyperthyroid! This means I have to get pills everyday - blech!! - but so far it's been OK, because I get to eat these really tasty treats called Pill Pockets!

I've decided that..
I love Pill Pockets! Yum!
Pills? What pills?

Purrs and headbutts,

I turned 8 today! Which according to my human mom is a pretty big deal , because I've already used up a few of my "nine lives".

And what was my present you might ask? Even better than the catnip mouse she gave me - a live moth came flying into the house! Best birthday present ever, even though my humans don't really think so :o)

The purrfectly gorgeous Samoa has named me as one of her dreamboats. Imagine! Me!
No wonder all the ladycats I live with let me bother them and play with them and groom them even when they're not in the mood - I'm dreamy!

Dreamy purrs,


I'm 6!

Yesterday was my 6th birthday!

I decided to help myself to a special birthday treat, by ripping open a bag of the dog's food and stealing a few pieces!
My meowmy wasn't very happy but they sure were fun to play with.

I made it up to her later by putting some of the pieces in her purse as a gift! i'm so thoughtful.

thank you for all the birthday wishes!
purrs and headbutts,


Birthday thanks!

I just wanted to thank all the nice cats that sent me birthday wishes and gave me the cool goodies!

Thank you to the family of Drifter, Mouse, etc for the ice cream cone! It tasted delicious!

Thank you Hazel Lucy for the bouncy ball! It was a lot of fun to chase.

Thank you to the family of Wally, Teddy, angels Alfie and Sydney, etc for the party hat! My meowmy especially loved the birthday picture of me! She printed it out and everything.

Thank you Sofie for the cupcake! The frosting was sooo tasty.

Thank you Mugsy for the Balloons! They were fun to chase, except I think I popped one by accident. oops!

and Thank You Athena for the huge birthday cake! There was enough for all of us to eat!


Today it's my birthday!!

Today is my 5th birthday! With all of the ongoing health issues I've had since I was a young guy, my meowmy thought many times that she was going to lose me. Instead, I made it to 5, and my meowmy is grateful for all the time she has with me!

Here's to another 5!

Purrs and headbonks,


V-E-T checkup and DDP!~

Wow! My meowmy and I logged onto catster and we got a pleasant surprise to see my diary on the Diary Picks list! Thank you HQ!~

I went for my one week checkup yesterday. The V-E-T lady that I like was there, and I purred for her so she could give me hugs and kisses :)

She and the surgeon had a discussion about me, and they are putting off the PU surgery for the time being because I've been able to pee on my own just fine. I do get another two weeks of that Pee-noxy-benzymine stuff, which I don't like :( and I have to go back in two weeks to get another checkup. As long as I get lots of hugs and don't have to stay, I don't mind the vet!

I hope everybody has a safe and happy Easter!

Purrs and headbutts,
