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.
