First I want to say this for all of our friends....we are here to stay, no matter what is going on here....this is a wonderful place for us kitties, we will continue our catster plus Mom loves putting wonderful things on our pages and decorating them, she is still trying to learn how to do things, she is a little slow about computer stuff, but I think she has don't great...we happy to say we are moving on to this new catster and hopefully it will be a happy wonderful place again.
We are here or should I say our Mom because it is a place for her to come to and forget what is going on outside, to not be stressed but to have fun...
This past year has been a difficult year for us especially Mom she found comfort, love and support, that is the bottom line and what catster is all about...not being upset with HQ
Yeah not all like the changes or the ads, but let's face it no one does, but eventually we get used to them and move on, there will be some that just can't and that is fine, we understand them being upset and moving on...we hope one day those that have left will return because we do miss them and love them...
Mom has realized that we need all of our catster friends you know why?
cause our friends understand how she is feeling, what she is going through and have been so supportive of us....others not on catster don't understand how Mom is feeling and with your love she feels a little better, she knows she can come here and she is not alone...
THAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING SOME HAVE FORGOTTEN...LOVE AND SUPPORT......
MOM HEARD SOMETHING TODAY AND IT PUT A SMILE ON HER FACE AND SHE SAYS YOU KNOW XENA THAT IS SO TRUE
GRIEF IS THE PRICE OF LOVE AND IT IS SO WORTH IT....
Mom is still grieving for our Tallulah, but it is worth it because of the love she gave to all of us for 10 1/2 years and we her love always and she will be in our hearts forever.
Just as we love all of you, we have made wonderful friends and you all will be in our Moms heart...
Blessing to you all, lets remember those that have left, those that are sick and those that will not be with us much longer, they need us now, let' support them, be here for them and not worry about things we can not change....LIFE IS TOO SHORT....
hugs and love
Xena, Mom and family
We have been saddened by everything that is going on, but we too love Catster and do not intend to leave. We have made so many furriends and Mommie says this is a place she can come to for love and support, laughs, and yes, we share our tears too. It's a magical world for kitties and their pawrents. I hope some of our furriends return too. Sure, I don't like some of the adds either, but there is a tactfulness and moderation we should follow too. I agree that kitties should be able to help other kitties with things they know too, but it can be done tactfully. I guess you know what I am trying to say. I just think this time some things got way out of hand. We love you Xena, Zeke, QT, and Kandi! Little Mia and MIlo are cuties too! It does make us sad there are so much unhappiness right now. Some of the kitties involved have strong feelings and some have a right too. I just wish all sides could come to some happy median.
Hugz and purrs, Sassy
Thank you Sassy, we do too, it would be nice if they all could come to an agreement....I have learned over the years that sometimes it is better to leave things unsaid...especially when it comes to pet food...I know some feel strong about certain things, but lets face it not all agree and money does talk...we have to follow the guidelines even if we don't like them or agree...if has gotten out of hand and I feel for the one kitty and Mom that HQ went after, she does things out of the kindness of her heart...it is gone way too far....but we are here to help and have fun....Mom still has a hard time she is trying, but this is hard on Mom too..but we wanted our friends to know we are here and we are not leaving...we just may not be on as much til Mom feels better.
Mewwwy mew!!!! We love our Catster friends and also feel blessed for the support and outpouring of love for us kitties. We purray that the community that we love remains. Enough said before I stick a paw in my mouth! (no way I'm doing that, yuk!)
You are so funny Aryeh...foot in mouth...that is good....we will get there if we all stick together and help one another...we love you and we are glad you stopped by...
So well said Xena and Mom! We have no plans on leaving this community filled with wonderful pets and people. Mom says she feels at home here as she finds comfort in knowing there are others out there who love their furbabies as much as she does. We are here to support our furiends and their families through whatever they may go through, good or bad, happy or sad. Sometimes it's our own family members who may not understand why we are so passionate about our furbabies, but yet here there is no judgement as to capacity of our love. Blessings to you too Xena, mom and family! Life is too short!
Endless hugs and purrs,
Simon & Reuben(an angel)
Sorry about that! Mom gets so passionate herself sometimes and forgets it's us she is talking about!
Hugs and purrs,
Simon, Reuben(an angel) and mom Val
Mom could not have stated it any better, Xena. We are also here for the love and support (and fun). While we are very disappointed that kitties cannot express themselves freely in their diaries and in the forums, and we are sad that many Catsters are leaving because of this, we are also staying because the advantages for us are greater than the disadvantages. Like it or not, Catster/Dogster is a business and we have to play by their rules. We all have to decide for ourselves if that is something we can live with or not.
Love and hugs to you and your family!
You hit the nail on the head, and so did the other kitties. We love this place, not for what it says we may not do, but for ALL the things we may and DO do. ESP the love and support we can give to each other, and the fun we have is just great!
Wouldn't want to miss it ever! In fact meowmy wishes she had found this place a lot sooner!
Purrs, hugs and love

I agree - there are some problems with Catster (there are problems with everything!) but they do not even begin to outweigh our friendships and fun!
I have made a lot of friends on here that I love so much. Thats what makes me want to stay.

Catulations on being DOTD and so beautifully said.
May we remember that and be thankful for what we have. So many people don't have the opportunities we have and don't have the opportunity to meet such wonderful people who become good friends who care about each other.
