Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

After spending most of my day not even being able to work, I thought about what I wanted to say here. I will be here until March 1, and then, like Xena's mom, I will delete my pages. Not any one else. ME. Funny, I joined TheCatsite.com about a week ago, just to check it out. Pretty ironic now. The bad thing is that there are soooo many sites. We need to kinda find one that alot of us can join so we can see each other. Forgive my rambling, but I have so much to say. Firstly, Catster saved Tigger's life - literally. I had just gotten the diagnosis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and was so scared, so worried. I did a search on it, and posts from our pal Bumpurr came up. I joined Catster on the spot. Then between reading & learning, I knew when Tig had blocked, what it was & what I had to do, and my baby made it. The past few months have been crazy, so I have not been here as much, and I do admit I did not get to visit our groups much - so many & with 4 kits - whew! Some people may think me silly, but I have grown so close to many of you. I went to bed with a prayer for your sick kitties, I cried with those of you that lost your baby, and was joyful when a sick little one recovered. I laughed at so many of your stories & jokes, and high fived you when you brought a new kit into your hearts. You have shared so much with me, and were there for us so many times, whether you knew it or not. I will update one last time at least on the rest of the quartet, but I will be trying to figure out how to save my stuff. While it will be great to visit everyone's blogs - I am not sure about FB - the thing I will miss is being able to comment in your diaries or on the forums. I tried to give a little advice here & there to help someone just as I was helped. Or to give encouragement on the get well forum. We won't have that anymore. I also feel bad for the article writers. They do their best, and while I did not read them all - once we are all off the site, what will really happen here? I will not return, for the principle of it - there is no point as it will not be Catster anymore. I just wish that the "powers that be" would have listened to us & gave us a chance - but money rules over heart so many times. Working from home, I am alone alot, (although many a times I have a cat-butt in my face while they dance across my keyboard!)and many gloomy days, I would log on to be cheered up. Now I feel like I have just lost so much.
Also I think I saw in Samoa's diary how to save your whole page. I was never savvy enough to make ours pretty, but I always liked to see how you all did yours. That too I will miss. I am off to hit The Late Show & see what is up there.

To my friends that maybe I did not see too much, I wish you all well, and you will always have a place in my heart. To the friends that I talk with a bit more, and really anyone that wants to stay in touch with us, here is our email again. PLEASE send us a line, and where you may be going or if & when you have a blog or if you are only on FB. We all need a chance to try & connect. You are too important to me to let go. I will end this diary with this; I was and still am PROUD to be a Catster Member & part of our little family. Loves to you all. Gentle pawtaps from Renee, Tigger, Maizy, Smitty & Felix.

well said and we all feel the same, I am at a lost and can't figure out most of these sites I have joined...catster is so much better....I am not going to do the FB, never had the desire to that is why I am thinking of blogging if nothing else just so our friends can see what we are up to especially with our move...there has to be a site out there...hope we can either save catster or find a site somewhat like catster...there will never be another like it.


We love you Tigger and family we will be sure to keep in touch Renee
