Hi friends, what a special time here on catster, one minute we are all sad and saying our good byes and the next we are all thankful that our voices were heard and our beloved catster/dogster will be saved! keeping all of our paws crossed!
So now that the mood is different here for us we wanted to update you all on our new home and us leaving California...so here goes
We sold our house here last weekend and just in time too! we actually had several offers so Mom and Dad decided on the one that was the easiest not the most money because the time was running out. They chose 2 guys that come in will be doing some upgrades and then will resale it...it makes Mom sad but she knows that it is time to move on and let someone else live in this house. Since Mom and Dad paid off this house they needed the money by the time our new house is finished so they can pay cash for it and not have the house payment...that was the plan from the beginning.. now our house is in escrow, will close on March 17th...
Yesterday was a happy day hearing we won and catster will be saved and happy for us because a lady called from the title company to let Mom know our house will be completed on March 20th, now Mom and Dad have to drive over to Arizona on the 20th, they have to do the walk through with the builder on the 21st in the morning, then the afternoon they have to go to the title company to sign all the papers. The bad part is not only do we have to stay here and the pet sitter will come to take care of us, but Mom and Dad won't get the keys to the house until the 26th...well now guess what Mom and Dad will be home with us again, now we have to find out how we can get the keys.They wanted to spend time in the house and they wanted to take things over especially for us while we wait for the movers to bring our things to us. Not sure what they will do now.
We have to be out of our this house by April 30th, so the crunch is on for Mom and Dad, well Dad more than Mom because Mom has been doing things for a few months now but not Dad he is waiting to the last minute...Not a happy Mom!!!!
As the time gets closer for us to leave we may not be around, we sure hope we don't miss anything...once our things are packed we won't be on computer at all, not until we get connected once again.
Mom sure hopes we all will be OK once again with them being gone but Mom told me because I am the oldest that they will leave the 20th and return on the 22nd...fast trip so we won't be alone for too long. I will just hang out in Moms closet in her room with Zeke. The others will be in the rest of the house. So much stress so much to do, but in the end we can all get used to living in a new house and surroundings, soon we will all be able to relax....that will be a good day...sigh!!!
so that is the update from here, we sure hope all of our friends are staying warm and safe with it snowing in the south and east...
Hugs to all of our friends, we are so happy to be here, we never left!

We have to tell you about Moms day yesterday. She went to the Cat Fanciers Cat Show yesterday. She was walking around looking for new toys for us after we move to Arizona.
Well she came open a lady that writes books on cat behavior etc. and was signing them, you guessed it Mom bought 2 of her books..as it goes Mom was talking to her, she rescued at kitty that had been mistreated, she is now all better, she is a therapy cat and helps with teaching pet first aid.
Her Moms name is Arden Moore, she is a animal behavior consultant, lecturer, and of course author.
Mom enjoyed her talk with her and they were talking about how people can be so mean to animals and hurt them. Then Mom told her what was happening to Catster and Dogster..she told Mom that she was featured on catster so she knows about the site she thought it's horrible what Say Media is doing, she is going to check into what is going on, see what she can do and possibly contact others. Not sure what she will do, but she gets around, talks to a lot of people, She even has her own radio show, goes on Pet Life Radio to talk, goes on talk shows as well.
She is an animal lover so Mom is hopeful that this lady will be able to help.
Here is the life radio web site she talks on, her web site and another if you would like to check it out.

She has a lot of contacts that may be willing to help us...We just hope she can help in some way. She can't believe that this company is taking our catster away from us...Let's hope something good can come from Mom meeting Arden Moore...
We have our paws crossed!!!
We got new toys and some really really good catnip, we all went crazy over this nip....
Mom had a nice time at the cat show, had time to not think about all that is going on...besides see so many wonderpurr kitties all in the same place..
Well time to go, we all love you and just hope we all can find a way to save our beloved catster.

Hello to all of our friends,
What a sad time around here, it just doesn't feel the same, but one thing we are realizing with this happening is not the site, don't get us wrong we love Catster/Dogster we wish this wasn't happening, but what is important is our friendship, yes our friendship...we are all rushing around trying to get each others email addresses so we can keep in touch so this is letting us all know that staying friends and keeping in touch is the most important things...
Mom has been crying like so many other Moms around here, she is so sick at heart over this from what is happening and thinking she is loosing so much here, the love, support and friends...so with that said
WE WANT TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH OUR FRIENDS IF YOU DON'T HAVE OUR EMAIL AND WOULD LIKE TO HAVE IT TO KEEP IN TOUCH PLEASE PAWMAIL MOM SO WE CAN SEND IT TO YOU AND WE CAN GET YOURS...
We are now on CatHugger and Furry Families....hope to see you there! lots of our friends are there already and more sign up everyday...
We are not sure if we will do any more diaries everything is up in the air around here and this is the worst time for this to be happening with all that Mom has on her plate with us trying to sell our house, having open house, people calling to look at the house all the time, trying to go through things, packing, Mom still doing pet sitting and dog walks, telling her clients bye and their precious furry babies and finally closing her business the end of March...and us moving between May 1st and the 15th.
Oh yes this is a sad time for us all, but there is hope around the corner cause we have our friends and we are sticking together one way or another....we will not go down without a fight!
We love you all, cherish your friendships, support and love....
Xena, Zeke, Tu Two, Kody, Kandi and our special angel QT and lastly Mom Peggy
We send hugs and butterfly kisses to all
