One Last Flea...I mean PLEA!

*Hannah drags the soapbox into the middle of the room*
*She carefully hangs a sign on the front with the name "Hannah-Rosanna-Danna"*

Ahem! Can I please have everypurrs attention?

The hours are counting down now and I think my hair is falling out from the stress!
We all understand the reasons behind this closing but that doesn't make it any easier to bear. This is heartbreaking for us, and even though it sounds like we are exaggerating, we are NOT! I hope everyone involved with the creation of Catster and Dogster is so very proud of the magical world they created here. It is so full of beautiful cats and people that we never want to leave. I'm 13 years old now, getting to be an old lady cat. When my family first came here, 12 years ago this month, I was just a kitten. I've spent my whole life here. I purray to the owners just one more time to keep our beloved site open. That's all I have to say now. *wipes tears*

Love & hugs forever,
Hannah

ATTENTION:

I'm looking for any cat who eats "Purely Fancy Feast" wet food in the little plastic trays. Mom has LOTS of coupons that don't expire 'til 2017 and wants to send them to someone.

Just email her at any of those addresses in my earlier diary.

XOXO,
Hannah

Dear pawtastic friends~

For years the "see recent friend activity" feature has not worked for us so I KNOW I am missing final diary entries and possible email contact information, along with recent birthdays. If you have just posted something like that will you drop me a paw mail?

Thank You Thank You!!!
Hannah & family

P.S. Also please let me know if you have joined other sites, and which ones are good. WAH! I miss everyone already.

P. S. again:
If you have protection on your picture album could you take it off for these final days so we can save photos of our friends?
We have removed ours.

Is Infinity Ending?

My mom once said of Catster "It's nine-lives into infinity".

We always thought we had a safe forever playground to call our own. But now we face the totally impossible task of saying goodbye to hundreds...no, THOUSANDS of friends we have met here over the nearly 12 years we have been on this site.

*wipes tears* I don't know how to say goodbye even though I have not been very active since moms surgery a year ago. We always knew we could come for a visit and even better, rejoin all the fun when we got a computer again.

So many memories, the rosettes alone have had momma bawling all day, re-reading them. The countless hours working on pages, the excitement of adding a new family member and watching them make friends, the holidays and beautiful wallpapers, the warmth of support when a new angel gets their wings...I could go on and on.

Friends have started to join other pet sites. Maybe I will sniff those out a bit later. But the unique place that Catster and Dogster are is magical. I will wish upon a star tonight that when I awake we will find a miracle has happened. Then momma will yell and tell me I spent a fortune in rosettes! Ha.
You guys are worth every penny and always have been. We will never have enough time to send to everyone we want to, so please know that I LOVE you all so very much and that goes for all the members of the TWB. We wish you all much joy wherever you may go.

Fuzzy Paw Hugs,

Beloved friends,
I will write a little later today my last diary entry, but for now mom wants me to list all her email addresses while our friends are still on the site. Because she is not on Facebook we do not know everyone by their people names. PLEASE send your human name, along with your cats name and your email address to mom. Don't assume she already has it because when her computer died, all was lost. Here are mom's email addresses and mailing address.

Thank you and love you all!

Mom's Home!

Mom is home from the hospital! She can't hold me yet, they are being cautious about infection. Hey, I'm clean, I wash every day, especially my face. Daddy did a good job taking care of us but we're glad momma is back. I'm going to let her tell about it in her own words.

~~~~~~~~~~
Hello Catster friends,

This was quite a scary experience. The procedure was much more complex than I first was told. There were 7 people in the operating room with me. A neuro-technichian was there to do nothing more than protect my spinal cord. Before surgery he placed numerous electrodes on all the muscle groups of my body. After I was asleep he put needles similar to acupuncture needles into my skull. During the operation he randomly stimulated parts of my brain and muscles and a neurologist in Austin sat in a room full of monitor screens and watched. This was to make sure they did not compromise my spinal column. Impressive. The surgeon removed the crushed vertebrae through the front of my neck. He then placed a porous spacer in, which will allow bone and nerve tissue to regrow and fuse together over time. Then the screwed the two vertebrae above and below the spacer together with a permanent titanium plate. The surgery went perfectly but it will take time to tell how many of my symptoms it will relieve. For now I have to use a walker to get around. Next surgery will be my back, maybe in the Fall. I have to take it very easy for awhile, which is hard for me as I am prone to over-doing it. So I might not be back to Catster for a few days yet, but I sure have missed everyone.

We got hammered pretty hard by the rains. The ceiling in our laundry room came down and made an awful mess. David will have to pull the washer and dryer out this weekend so we can clean it up. I had washed everything up and folded it all before my surgery. Needless to say, the ceiling came down all over the clean stacks. The huge drainage ditch behind our subdivision is full to the top, and the ducks are loving it. Seagulls have also found our new "fresh water lake"! Well, it's time for a pain pill and they make me drowsy so will say goodbye for now and I send my love and gratitude for all the well wishes and prayers.
Teri

 

A Must Tell Story...Or Maybe Not!

I don't usually write in my diary twice in one day, but this was too good to skip. giggle

Mom was in the bathroom with my sisfur Annie in her lap. She finished her business there and flushed the toilet. Then I heard her shout "OH NO!"
Any guesses? Not her cell phone, that was my first guess. She saw something she's never seen before...a HUGE green lizard in the toilet, swimming for his life as the toilet was flushing! She had no choice but to reach in and grab him before he went down the drain. hahaha mom. Then she held him very carefully but tightly and went over to the sink and gave him a bath! Murphy was very curious to see what she had caught. So mom carried him outside and set him free in the front flowerbed. I bet that lizard will be telling his buddies about his harrowing adventure and escape from certain drowning!!!

Remind me sometime to tell you about her giving CPR to a drowned bat...sheesh mom!

Sweet dreams.
Hannah

 

A Break For Mom's Health

April 30th 2015 1:55 pm
[ Leave A Comment ]

Hello my dear friends~
All us cats are doing fine here. It got chilly this week, down to 50 degrees.
Mom had just washed all our cat blankets to be put away for the summer!

The two kittens are doing great. Dad and mom are weaning them now and they enjoyed their first taste of kitten food! Their temporary names are Kieran, Irish for "little dark one" and Ciaran, meaning "little friend". She is the friendliest one and has the prettiest blue eyes. Looks like they will both be long haired, like their mom and pop. I will post another picture soon.

Now, about my mom and pop...

Dad is looking for a new job. He is doing well at his current one but his pay just isn't enough to take care of us and mom can't go back to work for a while yet. I might not be around very much on Catster for a little bit while she get's better. I'm going to let her tell you the rest.

From Teri~

I finally know what is causing most of my problems and it's fairly serious. I have a condition called Myelomalcia. Without going into boring detail it involves softening and compression of the spine, specifically in my neck and lower back. Vertebrae are crushing nerves and restricting the flow of spinal fluid. Damage may not reverse, but there is some hope with surgery. The surgeon said the neck must be done first because while the back could cause me to be in a wheelchair, the neck can cause paralysis. So I am scheduled for surgery on May 12th, which is the soonest he could perform it. This will involve removing one vertebrae and fusing two others together. I will have to wear a neck brace for six weeks. After that he'll do another MRI and also see what symptoms have abated and which remain. My back will be next. The pain in my back is bearable, but my legs are numb and very weak so it makes things hard to do around here. But I have a lot to clean and prepare. I will have limited time on Catster until after the surgery and apologize in advance for the birthdays and bridge days I will miss. My shoulder is healing fairly well, with about 75% of the strength back and about 50% of the range of motion. Well, that is about all my woes this time. Please keep me in your prayers, mostly because as our cat friend Ashlynne said "everyone depends on the mamma". I do love you all tremendously for the support and strength you have given me through our Catster friendships.
Thank you~
Teri

 

Sorry For Our Absence

It's been a while since I wrote to everyone.

First I would like to say thanks for all the beautiful Spring flower vases that were sent to our family. That was super kind and much appreciated.

Next, thanks again to everyone who has stopped by for all the recent birthdays of Harry, Xerox, Claire, Queso, Sissy, DC, Bubba, Cary, Copy, Wally and Pete! Whew! We are almost done with "Birthday Month"!

Okay, and soon I'll post another picture of the baby kittens. They are running around and wrestling now and very cute.

Later I'll write an update on mom too. She's finally got a diagnosis and plan.

Guess that's all for now.
Sure love you all~
Hannah

 

Request From Our Dog

April 19th 2015 10:19 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Hello friends,
I apologize that I am posting this with almost no time to respond, but we just learned of it.

Our dog Marlowe saw this in one of his groups. It got buried and I wanted to cross-post it here.
It is from his doggie friend Suzy Q (79716)'s mom, written about Suzy Q's elderly grandmother.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"I would like to ask a favor from my friends.......
As you know on April 6 a woman hit my mother with her vehicle and drove over both of her legs. Since then she has had to go through two surgeries, suffered a small heart attack during one of her surgeries, might need to have some skin grafts done and because of the heart attack she also faces having some work done on her heart in the near future.

Her life has been changed drastically. She has always been active and self sufficient, now she has to go to a Skilled Care facility for six weeks or longer.

The favor I am asking from you, my friends, is this........

Her 84th birthday is on April 25th and I'm asking that anyone who can and will to please send her a birthday card. I think this would brighten her day and lift her spirits.

Billie Frogge - Room 39
C/O Westminster Village
5801 West Bethel Avenue
Muncie, IN 47304"


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If anyone wants to send a card, even if it's late, that would be super.
Suzy Q's mom has been on Dogster and Catster for 10 years, so we are a big part of her life. Thank you~

Also, Marlowe seems to have sprained his back hip. He is not limping, but whimpers a little when he sits on it. Please purr he feels better soon so he doesn't have to go see the vet.

Love & hugs,
Hannah
