We have noticed that many are leaving catster, it saddens us because this is the place we can come to get love and support, yes you all know we have had a lot of support because of our Tallulah, but it is more...
Some are saying they are leaving because catster has changed, yes it has but we can make it through the changes and be here for our friends...if we all leave because of some changes that we feel are not the best then catster will be no more...
It saddens us to see this, we know times are tuff it is for most of us, Mom feels this is one place she can come and forget her troubles, her sorrows and find friends, friends who feel the same way and know how she is feeling...sometimes we can't always be here to have fun and be here for our friends, but we do come often to check on our friends...
We have some very special friends and we cherish them! So those of you that are thinking of leaving cause of the changes or there isn't much activity on here, think hard before you leave because for everyone that leaves there is one less here to make it better and soon there will be none...
We hope you all will stay, change your mind or just maybe take a little break if you need and come back...
Our family is so grateful for having found catster, for all of our special and wonderful friends we have made here...we pray for you all!
So here is a poem we found for all of you!
Special Friend Poems
"Portrait of a Friend"
I can't give solutions to all of life's problems, doubts,
or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will
search for answers.
I can't change your past with all it's heartache and pain,
nor the future with its untold stories.
But I can be there now when you need me to care.
I can't keep your feet from stumbling.
I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine;
Yet I can share in your laughter.
Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge;
I can only support you, encourage you,
and help you when you ask.
I can't prevent you from falling away from friendship,
from your values, from me.
I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you.
I can't give you boundaries which I have determined for you,
But I can give you the room to change, room to grow,
room to be yourself.
I can't keep your heart from breaking and hurting,
But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces
and put them back in place.
I can't tell you who you are.
I can only love you and be your friend.
Purrs, Love, Hugs and Agel kisses from all of us to all of you!

Agreed! We don't like the catster fleas but that isn't gonna make us leave. We'll be sticking around even through the thick and thin. We hope those friends of yours and probably ours too will decide to stick around. I know during the summer there were lots of furs not around much - including us - it does seem like Catster is starting to pick up again. We will deeply miss anyone who decides to leave and hope they know we are all here for them. We love your poem Xena!
we love you and your family. We're still here. Not always "on" but we are here.

We just sit and scratch until a flea is gone...or we make a detour around it...and sometimes we sigh like when Minko lost all the captions to his pics...but that doesn't change how we romp and play and otherwise be here for our many loving furends whom we would nevfur evfur want to be without.
Thanks for sharing that poem.

I agree - I'm sad to see some of my friends leave. I'm not going anywhere though, I'd miss my pals too much.
Thank you DA TABBIES O TROUT TOWNE,Simon & tony, Mietzi, Timo & Sonja, P & M and Jezebel....knowing that some of our friends are here for the long hall is nice to know....it just seems so many have given up because of the issues with Catster...we just deal with it and if we can't do something we just move on..
When Mom gets busy we are not here either, so we all have times when we are not around, but lately it seems like there is less and less around...but we will be here...no facebook Mom doesn't have time with her having her own business...
We loves you all
I agree. Our family is sad to hear some of our friends have or are thinking of leaving. Catster may never be perfect, but the good definitely outweighs any of the issues that have been going on.
Our family will be staying put on Catster!
