Finding Our Way Back

Dearest Catster friends,

First, many thanks to everyone who remembered my eight birthday, and the recent birthdays of my siblings. This is "Birthday Month" in our family, with more than a dozen birthdays to celebrate. There are even two tiny one week old foster babies here, that were born on my birthday! What a special gift. *Happy Purrs*
I will write to everyone of you soon, and send my official thank you's. has been quite a while since I have written in my diary. It would be too long a story to tell here, but the short version is that a while back, our normally dry town had 21 inches of rain. Our already leaking old roof gave it up in several places and the insurance company would not cover it due to age and condition.
There's more to the story, but that's the most of it.
So for our safety, until repairs can be made, we got moved to a friend's farm, and are in this really big and nice building with almost 1,300 sq feet to run in! It has windows overlooking a pasture and there are three horses we can see!
A white-ish colored one, named "Blue", comes over to the window and snorts at us. He thinks we smell funny. I have news for him...take a whiff of yourself sir! *giggle*
Anyway, we are all fine.
Mom and dad's day begins at 6:00 am, they drive to the farm, feed us our kibble, clean litters and play with us. Then they go to work, and after work drive back out to change litters, vacuum and mop the floors and give us our canned food. Mom says by the time they have dinner at 10pm, do laundry for the next day, it's almost midnight. Where can she make time for Catster? She stares at the blank computer and wants to be there so badly. We are missing everyone and so much has happened on Catster since we have been gone.
So we are trying to find our way back to our "second home".
It will be in little increments until it gets more back to normal around here. But wait for us...please...we're coming back!

Sending many, many hugs,
Hannah and the TWB


Apologies, Apologies...

Oh man, I am so sorry my dear and beloved friends.

Mom said she wanted so badly to do the angel stroll, to get us back to Catster for the Holidays, to send rosettes and put on Christmas wallpapers, but nothing is happening as hoped. She has been bawling like a baby because she is too tired to think straight. It is pulling all the joy out of the season.
We have received many beautiful cards in the mail.
Ours are still laying on the desk...unsent. More tears.
We have dozens of people to thank for all the help they were during the fund-raiser auction that was held a couple of months ago. It is eating momma up to have no time for anything. Please don't think this is not always on our minds. We can never say thank you enough for all the kind and generous things that happened. It allowed us to remain a family...what better gift?
Anyway, I have to rush off and give momma a kissie on the lips before she goes to work again.
I am going to try really, really hard to do some more of my treasured angels before the end of the year. I hope you will come back and read about them. I love you all so much.

Big, big hugs,
Hannah & mommie


Angel Intermission

My dear friends,
I will be back to writing my angel diary entries soon.
I am sorry for the interruption, but my typist is working very long hours and coming home very tired. She keeps telling me she's getting too old for all this hard, physical work! And taking care of all of us is no picnic either, :) (aw, but mom, we're sooo helpful!)

Also, I hadn't told most of you, but we have several more kitties living here now, two foster mom's, with nine babies, five big kittens that are going to stay here permanently, (Tyler, Nolan, Sally, Patrick, and Eli) one little kitten that just joined our family, named Jasmine (I will let Riley tell you about her soon) and and old black tomcat name Boris! WHEW! We hope to do pages for the new TWB members soon, as well as my sisters Zo-Zo and Paisley who never got their pages but have been here a year already. So if there's really "strength in numbers", we are coming back stronger than ever, MOL!

Kitty kisses & much love,
Hannah & her sisters,
(I always wanted to write that, giggle)
...and her brothers and mom & dad


We Believe

To see an angel, you must see another's soul.
To feel an angel, you must touch another's heart.
To hear an angel you must listen to both.

~Author Unknown

I cannot read the story of tonight's angel without tears of sadness and regret, but also tears of joy and hope. I believe that some cats can touch a heart so deeply because they desperately need love and desire to give love. They just need someone with a loving heart to give them a chance.

To know her full story you must read the 1st diary entry for~

Precious little angel EVE, though your life was brief, your legacy endures, and through the magical life that Catster allows, we will be friends forever. As your 1st Bridge Remembrance day approaches, this January, we will light a candle so that your flame continues to burn.

Fly with the butterflies will never be forgotten because we BELIEVE.

Love and kisses,


A Brave Boy

*Hannah opens her diary and writes...*

"My hero's come with wings, not capes."
~author unknown

We first met...
~when my Angel brother, Zack, joined the "Olde Furts" group, a truly pawsome group of loving cats. Thomas was in his teens, but doing well and had a happy home, surrounded by a family he had known and loved his whole life. One day, while napping on his sunny porch, he was brutally attacked by two dogs. He fought courageously, but internal injuries he sustained were too much. Right after Thanksgiving this year, Thomas had his 1st Bridge Remembrance Day.
We love you, Thomas, you are our Hero. Thanks for watching over us.

Please visit our friend, THOMAS BRAVE ANGEL

Purrs & Love,
Hannah and the Texas Wild Bunch

*Hannah dances as music plays*

"Rockin' around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop,
Mistletoe hung where you can see,
Every couple tries to stop,
Rockin' around the Christmas tree,
Let the Christmas spirit ring,
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie,
And we'll do some caroling.

Did I give you a clue who we will be visiting tonight?

None other than our handsome and talented friend...
Sonny Bono

SONNY, mom always says that I am her soulmate. I know you are your mom's soulmate too. I read once that most think a soulmate is someone like yourself, but actually a soulmate is your who shows you yourself, makes you face yourself, and helps to make you become a better you. I know your mom's life was better for having you in it, and I think that you make all of us better when we have you for a friend and Guardian.

Rock On, Sonny, Rock On!

Hannah & family


Always With You

*Hannah nudges Wally*
"Ready Wally? Time to go and visit a special lady."
"Bet I don't have to ask you twice!" *grins*

When angels visit us, we do not hear the rustle of wings, nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove; but we know their presence by the love they create in our hearts.
~author unknown

I would like to begin my Christmas Angel Stroll with a cherished friend of our family, and guardian of my beloved brother Stinky, who passed away in August.

Please come with me to meet lovely
Ava Corrine

As you visit AVA CORRINE'S page, you will see that a lifetime worth of love was lived in only the few years she had with her family.
When you adopt an older cat, time is often shorter, but the depth of love is no less intense than if she were with you for a lifetime.
Beautiful Ava, I know you will always be with your family, watching over them and watching over your Catster friends. We are honored to have you as our Guardian Angel.

With Love,
Hannah, Stinky and the TWB


Ice Cream Cones in December?

December 1st 2010 4:49 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 11 people already have ]

Okay, Okay, we all complain about our human typists from time to time, right? Well I have to say that I really hissed at mine today.
I said "MOM!" "Ice cream cone wallpaper and it's almost Christmas?!"
"I'll be the laughing stock of Catster!"
So she promised she would change it very soon.
I'm counting the days mom. 0-N-E...

There's a reason that my wallpaper hasn't been changed in half a year. It's been a long time since we have been on Catster except for a few minutes here and there. I have missed a lot, birthday's, bridge days, but most of all, being around you wonderful cats that I love so very much. We have had a very hard year as a family, with many trials and struggles that continue still. But my heart is here and I, along with the rest of my family, plan to return full-time soon.

I choose today to write to you because this is a very emotional time of year for me. Today is the anniversary of the day that my beloved friend, Wally went to the Bridge. It hardly seems possible that it has been three years already.
Every year, on this day, Wally helps me begin something that is very close to my Christmas stroll of Angels. This year I am going to try very hard to continue this tradition. I am going to feature the treasured cats who act as Guardian Angels for our large family. Some of our Guardians may have already been featured in a previous year's diary stroll, so I will probably not repeat those.

I hope you will come back later tonight, as Wally flies over to the page of a good friend. See you there?

Love and hugs always,


The Fortune Cookie

I have to apologize for momma...
She was really having a pity party day when she wrote my last diary entry. She said "Hannah, I need to delete this", but I said "Mom, my friends have taken the time to write and comment, that would be rude!"
So it stays, but I told mom to do what I do when things get too heavy...take a nap!
If that doesn't work, there's always catnip!

So daddy decieded he needed to cheer momma up yesterday,
After they finished working (it was a good, profitable day) he took her to eat at her favorite Chinese buffet. He calls it "Whinese" because she begs to go!

Anyway, she opened her fortune cookie. Here is what it said:

"Do not let what you do not have prevent you from using what you do have"

What we need may be enormous, but what we do have is equally gigantic. We have the companionship of our friends on Catster, we have a family of cats that belongs together and loves one another, we have hope and we have strength. So we will use those things we do have, like the fortune cookie said.

Thank everyone so very much.

Love & hugs, Hannah & family
(and an embarrassed momma)


Hanging On

[ Leave A Comment | 15 people already have ]

My dearest friends,

I felt I had to explain why we have been absent from Catster, and out of contact with our friends who we love greatly.

My mom has written it as a poem.
Please know how much we love you, and need your prayers.


Troubled times are upon us,
No joy in the future.
Too many worries,
Hanging on by a whisker.

The creditors are suing,
Mortgage company is threatening,
Working all seven days, but
Hanging on by a whisker.

Holding the wolves at bay,
Choosing who we can pay.
Living life day-by-day.
Hanging on by a whisker.

Sick cats in the household,
Pregnant strays on the doorstep.
Vet bills in the thousands.
Hanging on by a whisker.

Can't sleep from the pain,
No insurance or health care.
Missing friends and family.
Hanging on by a whisker.

No answers, no miracles,
Nowhere to find help.
But trusting the Lord, and
Hanging on by a whisker.

~With love,
Hannah and the Texas Wild Bunch
