Arrival Story:
I had been looking for a new kitten for a while with no luck. I came home from vacation and when I checked Pet Finder, I saw that the ARL had a kitten named "Cash." There was no information whatsoever about the kitten, but Rufus' friend Buddie had sent his parents a kitten they named Cash, so I thought it was a sign. I went down to the shelter the next day and fell in love with a little black furball.

Our regular vet called this morning. He said it's time. Not-the-Momma is going with Momma to say their final goodbyes - until they meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.

Thanks for the purrs, prayers, love, and support.


Emergency Purrs and Prayers Needed for Briana

Our sister Briana is in the Critical Care Unit at the animal hospital. It's been a rough 48 hours for her and Momma. This afternoon, Momma found out that Briana has bladder cancer. She talked to our vet and they decided to start her on a new anti-inflammatory medicine on Monday - she has been taking Prednisone, but they need to stop that and give it time to clear her system before they can start the new medicine.

Tonight when Momma got home, she found Briana hadn't piddled all afternoon. Momma gave her a pain medicine and her subQ fluids hoping that would help flush out her system. It didn't work, so they ended up going to the ER. They gave her stronger pain medication to make her comfortable.

The ER vet tried to act unbiased, but he obviously thought euthanasia was the answer. Momma was having none of that foolishness. So they're keeping her overnight. Her REAL vet will be in at 8 in the morning. Momma's hoping to stick to the original plan - keep Briana stable for the weekend and give the new medication a try.

Please, please, PLEASE pray for Briana. We know she's a fighter, but she needs all the help she can get. Thank you.

Love is Forever,
Rufus, Bob, Jack, & Hamlet


My Heart Will Go On

10 years. It’s been 10 years since I joined Catster on July 1, 2006.

I had been looking for an online support group because Rufus had feline lymphoma. When I stumbled across Catster and found all of these people posting in their cats’ voices, from their cats’ point of view, I thought they must all be crazy! But as I read on, I knew I could do the same for Rufus, and that’s when I realized, they were my kind of crazy.

10 years of ups and downs, good times and sad times, but never bad times as long as we had each other. Now all of it is coming to an end. Briana has joined the Here Kitty forum and Pets4Pals, but we all know it’s not the same. She’s made 18, but is on the last of her 9 lives. I know you understand what a difference a friendly ear and a few words of encouragement can make at a time like this. I will miss having that from my Catster friends.

Remember when our furkids went to the Rainbow Bridge, we said they became Angels and went on to “live their 10th life” on Catster? Well, I feel like Rufus and Bob are dying again. There will be no “11th life” for them on another site. How could there be? So many years of memories, both treasured and all-but-forgotten, going, going. . . gone?

I’m saving what I can on the Internet Archive - pages of diaries, extra special diary entries with posted comments (remember those?), some of our friends’ pages, but it’s not nearly enough. What about forum and group threads? Rosettes, gifts, and stars? We were promised Forever Stars!

In closing, I’d like to thank the countless people and cats who touched my life on Catster over the years. After Rufus died, the song I chose to have on his page (back when we could still do that) was Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On:

“Love can touch us one time
And last for a lifetime
And never let go ‘til we’re gone.”

Love is Forever,
