Furs, take a deep breath and unpack your moving boxes again. Here is what Watch Dog said in the All Paws Bulletin Group:
PAWS UP! **Move to New Platform NOT Happening Tomorrow May, 21, 2015**
The move to the new platform IS STILL HAPPENING, but we have a little more time, and A LOT more work to do, before we MUST get off of the old platform.
I'm actually relieved that we now have more time to test the sites, and possibly get some Pawsome Pages folks in to start looking at styling.
I should have an idea of the new date by the end-of day Friday.
Thanks for your patience everyone. Please help spread this update by sharing with your Groups and social networks
here is the link

We are moving!!! Finally. We are very excited. Where are we moving to? Well, just up a Platform. Oh, we are not really moving out of this house. We're staying in the middle of the Midwest, but Catster (and Dogster) are finally moving to a secure Platform that can't be hacked as easily as this one, and there will be no fleas hopefully (crosses paws), and everything will actually work!
WHEN ARE WE MOVING? Next week Purrsday or Furrday (May 21 or 22).
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO to get ready for the move? Not much. Just the things in your fun stuff boxes won't work anymore because the site will use new code. Thank Catness. No more of that furry complicated CSS code that took us days to learn just a little bit of and now we've forgotten it anyway.
So your background and page decorations will be gone. Also the things you have put on the right side of your page will be gone. Like memento pictures that some furs made for you, slideshows, etc. Everything that you have created by using the Fun Stuff boxes will be gone.
DON'T PANIC. You can recreate all that on the new Platform. But you'll need the photo(s) you used for your background and decorations, and the other stuff that you have put on the right side of your page. Chances are you or somefur else, has a copy of that saved. Photos, memento pics, slideshows might be in your Photobucket or even on your own computer. If you have Memento pics that somefur else made for you and you don't have a copy saved, send them a PawMail, they might be able to email you a copy. For example, the Meezers (Pipo and Minko) created countless Memento pics for furs over the years. If you know that the picture you are looking for was created by them, send them a pawmail.
Another thing you can do to FIND YOUR BACKGROUND-PHOTO: right-click on your background, then left-click on "View Background Image". Many times that will lead you to the Photobucket account where the picture is saved. You can then copy that photo to your own Photobucket (right side: Options, Copy). (Please don't use other fur's backgrounds without asking purrmission. Other Furs worked very hard to create it)
THE GROUP PAWSOME PAGES has already volunteered to help Furs figure out how to decorate their pages again after the move. A big hug and kitty-kisses to these furs. They spent countless hours helping furs in the past and they'll do it again, without any compensation, just for the Love of Catster and Dogster.
Here's what Watch Cat has to say about the move. Hope the link works, otherwise you'll have to take the spaces out (another annoying thing that hopefully won't happen any more on the new Platform):
Community Site Update
Purr-Scipt: You cannot comment on this diary entry, nor on any other diary entries on Catster and Dogster. It's one of the many features that's broken, and that's why we're moving.

More birthday gifts arrived. You guys are the best. Thank you and big hugs to:
Pinkie, Nonnie, Biggles, Angel Buddy sent me TWO kites. How cool. Look! I'm flying them both at the same time :)
Tulips from pretty Natasha. Thank you dear friend. They are as pretty as you are.
WeeBees, our favorite Meezers, send a big bouquet of flowers. Very pretty. Thank mew.
BIG hugs arrived from Sam, Mr. D, Raza and Angel Baltster. Hugs right back to you my friends.
More pretty flowers from Humphrey and Roger. Love them. Of course I like flowers. I agree, it is purrfectly manly to enjoy flowers. They are pretty and they small good and some of them even taste good. :)
Grace, Casey, Leo and Frankie sent big hugs and suggest that Mom bakes me a Catnip Cake for my birthday. What a good idea!!!
Lily and Uboo sent me a mouse. Purrfect guys. Because the first mouse that Moose and Spencer sent run under the stove and hasn't been seen since :(
Lily and Uboo said that Mom should give me special bon bons for my birthday. I'll be sure to mention that to her.
Let's eat: I got cupcakes from Humphrey and Roger. Wow guys. Flowers AND cupcakes. You know how to spoil a guy.
Toby and Josie also want Mom to give me more bon bons. I'll mention it to Mom. Very helpful suggestion. AND they sent cupcakes. Mmmmh is this a new flavor? Trout and nip? Delicious. Thank mew.
Luke, Tully, Sammy and Natasha sent a big Sunflower. I can really use that now. AND it's working. Purrsday was rainy but now it's sunny! Thank mew. We need more sun.
Finally, my true love, Kandie, sent me her heart. I love you too my sweet girl. I'm praying for your health.
