Luke and I just received the best birthday present ever today when we logged into Catster a few minutes ago and were able to see our pictures and Purr Board again on the Community Home Page - yahoooo!
It's been a few weeks now that we've been getting the pawful "503 Service Unavailable" message and have been unable to access any of the Catster areas. We truly were ready to give up and accept the fact that our beloved Catster site was probably gone forever.
Since today is our birthday, we decided to give it one more try. Not only can we see our pages again, but we can see all the pawsome gifts and messages from our pals - thank you to everypawdy who stopped by, we are glad to see some of you are still here.
Thanks again for the birthday wishes, being eight sure is great!

I was so very sad to see Mom and Dad drive off in the car earlier today...what?! How could you leave us alone on Thanksgiving Day? It's my favorite holiday of the year with so much yummy turkey around...where are you going, Mom?
Good news! I was sitting in the window staring into the darkness a little while ago, when all of a sudden, our car drove up into the driveway, and I saw Mom get out carrying a bag. What's in the bag Mom?
Turkey! Mom brought us some leftovers from Grammy's house, thank catness! Yum, yum! Okay, I'll forgive you for leaving me today, Mom.
Hope all our furiends had a wonderpurr Thanksgiving and that you got to spend it with the ones you love.

Hello Furry Furiends!
We miss you all so much, and it warms our little hearts when our furiends stop by and remember us on our Birthdays and Gotcha Days with prezzies and special photos. We hope and purr that Catster will be up and running again soon so that we can comment on diaries, upload photos, etc. but for now, we are just happy that the site is still here and at least the pawmail seems to be working!
We really appurrciate the pawsome photos we received from Rory & Family and the Birthday and Gotcha Day Club - thank you for your thoughtfulness!
Thank you Rory & Family!
Thank You Birthday & Gotcha Day Club!

Luke and I just wanted to say thank you again for all the birthday wishes, prezzies, and photos. We had a pawsome birthday!
Unfortunately we still cannot upload the gorgeous birthday pics we received from Callie Rose, Rory & Family, and Pipo and Minko - boo hoo! They are so purrty, I wish we could add them to our Photo Books. Part of my Photo Book was eaten up by Catster fleas and only displays a few of my 100+ photos even though we are still Plus members. Luke's page is also having problems now and we cannot add new photos. We have contacted Technical Support many times about my photo issue, but apparently it is not fixable.
Just wanted you to know how much we appurrciate the gifts and photos and hopefully we will be able to get them up on our pages...soon!
Love and Purrs,

We still peek into Catster every now and then to see what is going on with our furiends. We are furry happy to hear that the i-5 transition team has decided to rebuild the Community areas of the site on a new platform so the fleas will go away and this site will function better than ever! Isn't that pawtastic news?
Now I don't usually complain, I'm a very easy going kitty my Mommy will tell you, but I have been furry annoyed with my brofur Luke lately. You see, I have always been a lap kitty, I love my Mommy's lap, and I've never had problems claiming it as my own. Well now Luke has now decided that he loves Mommy's lap, too, and this has been causing some major conflicts in our house. Luke has the nerve to jump up while I am comfortably resting on Mommy's lap and he'll scoot his big butt in my face thinking he can chase me off. Mommy's lap is mine, go away Luke!!! Grrrrrrrrr!!!
Sometimes Luke will sit on Daddy's lap which is fine with me, but since Daddy has been gone for a few days, only Mommy is here and we are on the verge of starting a war over this, I tell you. We are all really happy that Daddy will be home later this evening because we need more laps around here!
One Unhappy Kitty,

Just wanted to meow out to all our Catster furiends and let you know that we are still around and waiting with the rest of you to hear who the new partner is and what will happen to the Catster Community in the near future. We just celepurrated our 5th Catster Anniversary and have 5 candles on our cake now. We hope there will be many more Catster anniversaries in the future to celepurrate. We love being able to connect with our kitty pals on this site and hearing what you all are doing.
Luke and I will be celepurrating our 6th Birthday in just a few days. Daddy had a birthday this month and Mom and Dad have a wedding anniversary in a couple of days, so there is lots of celepurrating going on in our house. We are all getting along really good right now and Luke hasn't been picking on Sammy lately, so Mom has been really happy about that. Natasha still likes to snuggle with me when I am curled up napping, but I don't mind too much, she's okay for a little sisfur.
I helped Mom plant a bunch of new flowers in the backyard last weekend, that was fun. We have had very little rain this winter which is very concerning, but the weather has been pretty nice with temps in the 70's and low 80's, so we have been enjoying it. Most evenings, Mom opens all the windows and we get to peek out and enjoy the fresh air.
We hope all our pals are doing well - please drop us a line when you can and let us know how you are doing.

Like many of you, we are heartbroken that our beloved Catster Community will soon be going away. This March would have marked 5 years for us on Catster, and in that time we have been so very fortunate to meet the most awesome pawsome kitties and their humans we could ever possibly imagine - all of you. It's hard for us to believe that we won't be able to come here anymore to play, laugh, socialize, and support each other.
Thank you to each and every one of you for the love and support you have shown us over the years. We have laughed and cried with so many of you and will miss seeing your new photos, reading your diaries, visiting our groups, and celebrating all the Birthdays, Gotcha Days, Bridge Anniversaries, holidays, and other special occasions.
If you are not already friends with us on Facebook, please either post a comment here or pawmail us and we'll give you our FB info. We don't go to FB nearly as much as Catster, but sadly that will have to change when our beloved Catster goes away.
Because Catster keeps getting invaded by spammers, we don't want to post too much personal info here, but we would love to exchange email addresses with our furiends so we can keep in touch - please let us know so we can send you our contact info.
Luke, Tully, Sammy, and Natasha, and Mom Kelly

Happy happy Gotcha Day – cha cha cha.
Yep, it was 5 years ago today that Mom picked Luke and I up from an adoption fair at a nearby pet food store and brought us to our furever home. We were 7 months old at the time and our foster Mom was getting worried that she would have to split us up. She was holding out for a furever home that would take BOTH of us since we are brothers and very bonded to each other. Thank catness that Mom came along and figured out that 2 kitties are double the fun! Two more kitties came along a little later (Sammy and Natasha) and Mom says she’s a furry lucky cat Mama to be surrounded by so much kitty love everyday (not to mention all the cat fur, MOL).
Luke and I hid under the bed that first night Mom brought us home. We spent the second night corralled in the bathroom so we wouldn’t hide under the bed, and the third night we slept on our pawrents bed ~ MOL. We figured out that the humans’ bed is much warmer and comfier than a cat bed on a cold bathroom floor. Now we are kings of our castle and we sleep anywhere we want.
Thank you to all our thoughtfur friends who stopped by with warm wishes and rosettes to help us celebrate today, we love you all. We send our heartfelt purrs and sympathy to our friends and their families whose kitties have made their Journey this past year and became angels. Words cannot express how sad we are to have lost so many beloved Catster friends recently – let’s all purr and purr that everycat stays healthy and happy.

Hello to all my furiends out there! Hope you’ve had a pawsome summer. It’s 95 degrees in the shade right now, so it feels like summer is still here.
Mom and Dad have been busy working on the house and have decided to build a catio. All of us love going outside and enjoying a little fresh air now and then so Mom thought an outdoor enclosure would be a good idea. We certainly wouldn’t go outside on a day like today – it’s too darn hot! But most of the time the weather is very pleasant where we live, mostly in the 70’s and 80’s with very mild winters.
Mom has been searching the Internet for ideas and sees many options out there for outdoor enclosures. Dad is pretty handy with tools (Mom is not) and he’s willing to make one for us, but he’s short on time because he works a lot. Mom likes the idea of buying one that is in a kit so that all the pieces are pre-cut and ready to assemble, but some of them are quite expensive. The area we are looking to put the catio is about 8X9 feet and it would be up against an exterior wall of the house so it can’t go above the roof line. Mom is thinking of putting a cat door through a window opening so we can go in and out of the catio when we like.
Do any of you have catios, catteries, or outdoor rooms that you have made or bought? We are looking for any ideas and suggestions – thanks furiends!

Hi Furiends! It’s true! I’m finally home! I’m so happeeeee!
After five long days in ICU, my vet said I could go home – yippee! Mom was ecstatic when she got the news and could hardly wait to come and pick me up. I have staples in both sides of my chest where the drainage tubes were placed and I’m missing a lot of fur on my chest and belly, and on the leg that had the IV in it, but I otherwise look pretty good. I lost some weight, so we’re hoping my appetite improves and I eat like a little piggy now that I’m home.
Thanks for the outpouring of purrs, prayers, and love while I was sick. I know all those purrs helped me to recover from my illness. All the love and support helped my Mom out, too, she has been pretty stressed for the past week.
I also have to thank my pawsome doctors and the great vet techs at the Animal Hospital ICU who took such great care of me – I am one lucky cat.
Much love and gratitude,
