Another On-Line Diary

September 30th 2007 11:01 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

This is about the third time I've had an on-line diary, though only two are filled with what goes on about Bitu. Maybe I shouldn't say "filled", because the diary on Pet Style.com only shows three entries at a time without bothering to say what becomes of what you wrote before. When I saw that you can see all the entries you wrote, I liked it already. Of course, if Bitu could write this herself, she'd probably complain that we don't spoil her enough. And she'd probably tell of her ambition to be a rich cat. I just wonder what will happen when she meets Minnie in Heaven someday. I suppose they'll start batting at each other, then Mom will say, "Will you two cut it out? You're acting like a couple of kids!" Then they'll look at her like, "We're not doing anything!" Then when nobody's looking, they'll bat at each other again. They'll spend their time trying to outdo each other in being the top cat.

 

Diary of the Day

I don't know how it happened, but not too long after I set up Bitu's Catster.com diary, it was nominated Diary of the Day for October 1, 2007. I was so excited that I sent a note to the KittyWhiskas group and told them about it before my brother made me go down to my own room for the night. I don't know if anybody in the KittyWhiskas group has seen my note yet, but Bitu's already been given some Catster Friend invitations and given one out. She even got a present called a "rosette", though it looks more like a shrimp than a rose. She'd probably turn her nose up at it if it were real because she's gotten so she doesn't like fish, even though her Humane Society papers said she liked a certain fish flavor of Fancy Feast. She still likes Fancy Feast, but now she prefers beef, chicken and turkey. After our helper finishes cleaning our rooms today, I'm thinking of indulging her with one of her favorite cans of Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys, though she still won't eat any fish flavors. Even so, she doesn't think she gets enough green cans. But with the weather being so hot until a few days ago, there would be no sense in putting out canned food if she wouldn't eat it. But today's a special day and the weather's cooler now, so why not?

 

So Many Friends In Such a Short Time

Bitu's only been on Catster.com for three days and she's got 48 Catster Friends already. That's more than either my brother or I have ever had in a lifetime. I know some of them are already gone, so I wonder if Minnie's gotten to meet them yet. In any case, both of them want everybody to know that they want to be the top cats. But it's still nice to have so many friends in such a short time.

 

KittyWhiskas For Catsters

Some weeks before joining Catster.com, I joined KittyWhiskas from a link on Yahoo.com for another group I'd joined. Then when I tried to find KittyWhiskas in the Catster Group Directory after joining here, it wasn't there, so I got permission from both the main KittyWhiskas leader and Catster.com to start a branch of KittyWhiskas on Catster.com. All cats are welcome, of course, but especially cats who were in shelters or have been rescued or who are in a foster care situation or have been adopted. Even stray and feral cats are welcome. But putting up the HTML for Bitu's Catster badge was the hardest thing. I ended up copying it from the Catster Badge form because I can't write HTML (URL links are so much easier!). Once the page was up and running, I sent a note to the main KittyWhiskas group to let them know how they could join in case they didn't belong to Catster already. I also put a link to the main KittyWhiskas page for people who belong to Catster already who want to check out the main KittyWhiskas group, though they would have to have a Yahoo.com ID in order to put up some pictures, though the main KittyWhiskas group has a 10-picture limit for their albums (not my rules, but I don't want the main leader of KittyWhiskas to be mad at me). I'm beginning to have greater respect for people who run groups on computers. If anybody who already belongs to Catster wants to join KittyWhiskas For Catsters, just look up KittyWhiskas For Catsters in the Group Directory and punch the Join button. I'd like to send personal invitations, but some of the pages here are hard to get to. That's technical glitches for you. Anyway, I hope to see you in my group soon. Now Bitu can really be a top cat!

 

Busy, Busy, Busy!

It's hard to believe, but the KittyWhiskas For Catsters group is starting to catch on. I've spent a lot of my free time issuing invitations, and nine have been accepted so far. Then leave it to me to advertise the group on Pet Style.com where I have a diary which isn't added to as often as this one. I wonder how many Pet Style.com members will take me up on the invitation, especially since there's no expiration date. What have I gotten into? But then, Bitu likes being the top cat in the group, so I can't disappoint her. I just hope I don't disappoint the rest of the group.

 

Our First Referral

I've lost track of how many official invitations I've sent for KittyWhiskas For Catsters, but we have several dozen members already. When I expressed interest in expanding our international roster, a couple Australian members recommended a German cat who they hope will join. He was sent an official invitation, of course, though I don't know when we might get an answer back. I can't believe we've gotten our first referral after only a few days.

 

Our First Forum Discussion

Some KittyWhiskas For Catsters members have finally used our group forums. Somebody asked advice for a sudden bout with sickness. I said that it wouldn't hurt to go to the vet to see what might actually be wrong, especially while waiting to go to a good home like he is. One of our other members agreed, especially if they might become dehydrated if they lost a certain amount of water out of their system. Then the member who started the forum discussion wrote back with more details. He'd recently been fixed and not had food for two days, then somebody gave him food he wasn't used to which only complicated matters until he got some food he'd had before. We don't know if he's over his troubles yet, but we can hope for the best.

 

Finally Getting Some Help

Our KittyWhiskas For Catsters Club is expanding faster than I expected. It seems that I've also gotten a couple members through the Catster Group Directory link, though I've been sending official invitations most of the time. The new members from the directory link seem enthusiastic about making things interesting for our group, so I've appointed one as our new Vice President and her adopted sister as her assistant, since both their pictures showed up when I tried to only get one, but I guess they do things that way around here so multiple-cat households won't feel like they're leaving anybody out. It's probably just as well, because they might get a lot of feedback about what our members might like to do to keep things interesting. We'll see which proposals get the most votes (or whatever) and take it from there. Bitu probably didn't realize how much work being top cat could be. Minnie had it so easy in comparison!

 

Some New Invitations

Bitu's gotten some invitations to other groups now. Even though she prefers to be by herself, she was invited to the "I'm No Longer Alone" Club. She was also invited to the Chatty Cats Club, though she doesn't talk much unless she's in the mood. Now she belongs to four Catster Clubs, though she still prefers to be the top cat in the KittyWhiskas For Catsters Club. But because we still favor Motorola chip Macs, she feels compelled to uphold their reputation in the Mac Kitties Club, though sometimes the "Stop" and "Reload" buttons are more trouble than they're worth. If she could, she'd scratch a box in frustration, but her scratching box is on the fifth floor and the computer is on the seventh floor.

 

Our First Poll

October 9th 2007 9:41 pm

A few days ago, I put forward the idea for our KittyWhiskas For Catsters Club to use our Group Photos space as a Memorial Wall for those members whose family couldn't be invited to our group because of not knowing about it in life. Most who have said something about it even before the poll went up have generally been in favor of it, though I'd rather we hear from as many as we can before making an official decision. But even if it went through, Bitu would have the dubious distinction of not being able to put Minnie's picture up with everybody else's because the only picture of Minnie that exists is the one the Humane Society took at the Rose City Veterinary Hospital when Minnie died of a bad case of fleas on February 3, 2005 and we don't have that picture, so that's why Minnie couldn't even have her own Catster.com page. It would make Bitu look bad as Founding Member and President of KittyWhiskas For Catsters if she couldn't put Minnie's picture up with everybody else's, especially after I thought of the idea of the Memorial Wall in the first place. It's kind of embarrassing when you think about it, but if enough people go for it, we couldn't let them down.
