Dearest Catsters,

I didn’t think it would be right to not write a final diary entry on my beloved Catster page. It has been so hard fur my mom to believe the site is closing.

It all started when she was searching for sites to help with pet memorials, as one of her dear barn kitties went to the bridge. Little did she know, she would find this wonderful magical place called “Catster” that changed her life furrever.

I joined first, and then Mugsy. Ohhhhh the fun we had!!! The parties, the weddings, Group games and travel adventures, pizza nights, the Forums topics and hangouts….the Cat of the day and Week were such great honours…..and who could furget the Holiday Picture parties, and the Worlds Coolest Contest?!....
The Catster Railroad! (Purrfect)…..the Purr List,…..the Dreamboats!.....I would mention cats names, but ohhh where would I stop, there has been so many that stole our hearts and made this site what it became….alive and magical!
BUT also, coming together when there was heartbreak, when someones fur was sick or left for the Bridge. A lot of us couldn’t have gotten through the sad times without our furriendships here, and our memorial pages.

(We will join up at other sites to try to find you all again.)

Catster was a big part of our lives fur so many years. It is just so overwhelming and heartbreaking to have to say goodbye. It just feels like something is dying inside.  We will miss efury one of you so very much! We will be ever so grateful fur the memories made here in this marvelous kingdom of cats!

We cannot take down our pages. We just can’t. For all of us still here…..Let us join paws, bow our heads, and light a candle in the silence as the lights go out……

Love is furever

I would just like to thank all of my wonderful friends who thought of me on my birthday (May 5th) and my Bridge day (May 31st). And for all of the thoughtful gifts left to decorate my page.

Mom can't believe it's been 5 whole years since I went to the Bridge. Just the other day, she said my name by mistake. She still thinks of me everyday, and how much joy I brought her through my 18 years.

Thanks again friends. Mugsy and I don't get on here as much as we want to. I long for the days of Catster to be like they used to be. As they should be. Still purring we get it all back to that vibrant and fun place it was.



Thoughts from the Bridge

Well it's been a while since I've come back to write in my Diary furriends! I love and miss you all! Let me start by saying that the few years I have been here at the Bridge have been wonderful! With so many of my Angel buddies with me now, but it's kind of sad how many are showing up here long before their time.

Mom actually forgot that today was my Birthday. She's been trying to help Mugsy get out the birthday gifts to all our furriends in hopes that Catster stays up and running in the meantime. There was a bunch we missed while it was not accessible, and for that we are sorry.

Catsterland is a sad place right now with our dear sweet furriend Smiley Cassenova making his journey to the Bridge. Might I say, he is going to make one excellent Guardian Angel, already watching over the ones who need purrs like he did so well on earth.

Mom was just thinking this morning about cleaning up around my burial place in the yard, and then discovering that I had received 2 birthday rosies.....for my Birthday! This made her cry. Even though she thinks about me almost everyday, she finds it hard to be on my page sometimes. The day she led me to the Bridge, well , it still leaves a sick feeling in her tummy that will never completely go away. I am just waiting for the day she can hold me in her arms again, that's when i will truly be in Heaven!

Purrs to you all,


Angel Dreamboat #30!

Oh my Catness!!! I can't believe it! This has been such a pawsome day! I'm so delightfully honoured to have been chosen to be a Dreamboat by the beautiful Samoa! It just made my whole day....maybe week!...or heck, even month!

Thank you Samoa. I am humbled.

In more news,
The *Kewlest Catster Kitties* group is having fun with Valentine's Day Secret Admirers. I have received Red Lips and Red Hearts, some special words, and a pawsome Valentine picture with my photo in it! I don't know who this girl kitty could be, but I'm sure she is beautiful and really special. I can't wait to find out on February 14th!

It has been 8 months now since my Bridge Date. Mom still has a little trouble working on my page, she still gets teary-eyed.
She had no idea how much she would be missing me. I did - cause I knew how much she loved me.


I am but a dream...

Last night I came to mom in a dream.

I showed up at her doorstep a kitten again. She let me in and then I became old again. One minute I was a kitten, and the next I was old and dying. She had to learn to lose me again. To let me go. After that I stayed with her as a kitten, to live my life with her all over again.

I think she understood the dream. I want her to grieve for me, but also to move on. She has to let me go, to be able to love again. Maybe a new kitten is on the way, or she just needs to be able to give all the love she has to Mugsy.

I will do my best to get her prayers answered.

Purrs from the Bridge.


A Poem for my Mom

I wrote this just for you mom. I hope you like it.

I know you loved me mommy
you told me everyday
For 18 years I had a home
and a nice soft bed to lay

I came to you a ball of energy
and brought you so much joy
"You're quite the handful" you would say
my squeeky little boy!

The days and nights went by quite nice
when troubles arose with my peeing
Something you knew was not quite right
a glitch in my well being

You tried for years to "fix" me
and excused me for my manners
As time went on, and years went by
it got worse instead of better

You had to make that choice for me
that later felt so wrong
Dear God, you prayed, have I betrayed
my friend I've had so long?

I see your pain and emptiness mom
please dry your eyes for me
My body's new and young again
I'm stress and worry free

You have Mugsy there for comforting
she will stick to you like glue
I whispered gently in her ear
to give my love to you

So now I'll wait at Rainbow Bridge
your return when Heaven sings
I'll fly to you, your Honey Boy
in my brilliant golden wings!

Tribute To A Best Friend

Sunlight streams through window pane
unto a spot on the floor....
then I remember,
it's where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,
and muted echoes sound....
then I remember,
It's where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road,
and up beyond the hill,
then I remember it can't be yours....
your golden voice is still.
But I'll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall.
I'll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above.

~Author Unknown~

Words cannot describe what I am feeling.


Bridge date :(

Hello everyone,

Taffy's mom here.

I am very distraught over the decision to have Taffy put to sleep this Tuesday morning. In the past few years, he has been urinating outside the litter box. Recently it's just been getting worse and worse. I have tried everything I can think of to discourage this behaviour. Some things have worked but only for a little while. There is nothing medically wrong with him (I've had him checked out) and I know it's behaviour issues. It's getting harder to keep the smell away, and my husband has had enough.

We have had him for 18 years, and I've loved him all 18, despite his "accidents." All I can do now is give him so much love until the time is here...

I am feeling sick about this! When the time comes I don't know if I'll be able to go through with it. I know 18 years is a long time for a cat, but when it's yours, you always wish they'll live forever.

This is killing me. Please someone tell me that what I'm doing isn't horrible! Because It feels like I'm the worst cat parent in the world!

I love you Honey Boy.


18 today!

Oh dear, I can't believe it's been so long since I posted anything in my Diary. I guess I've been sleeping more than I thought!

It's starting to warm up here, so I am getting outside more often again. I love the feel of the nice warm breeze on my fur. I think mom has some extra special treats and catnip planned for me today.

I will have a great day today, even though I nap about 20 hours a day (what do you expect...I'm an Olde Furt!) Thank you to all of you who send me treats and Birthday wishes!
Purrs, Taffy


Birthday and then the Vet

My Birthday was on May 5th, and I recieved a bunch of treats, rosettes and stars from some very nice kitties, and I felt so honored! Mom gave me catnip (which I LOVE) and I got to go outside for a while in the nice warm sun. Then of course I had an extra long nap, 'cause I'm 14 now ya know!

Yesterday, mom took me and Mugsy to the Vet's for our check-ups and rabies shots. I was a real good boy of course, and I got a good bill of health! So I'm ready to go for another year, mom is so happy!

Oh I forgot to mention, Mugsy peed in her carrier case on the way to the Vets. Tee hee! I thought it was funny, 'cause it wasn't me having accidents this time!
