Arrival Story:
Tiger was born to a homeless young mother. He was born in a neighbor's backyard. The neighbor had a lot of cats and her home was foreclosed on. Tiger's cat mommy was one of her cats. He lived outdoors for four months. He was scared of people, but his love of food soon overpowered his fear. He allowed himself to be petted and would take treats from my hand. He even started to roll over and show his belly. His gotcha day was traumatic. The winter was coming closer, and the neighbors were taking Tiger's mommy and siblings to a shelter. Tiger wasn't supposed to go. He was the only one of his siblings that was not feral, and there was an effort to find a home for him. Mommy really wanted him but was afraid that my other cats would not accept him. Everyone was trying to come up with a plan to make sure Tiger was adopted by a good family. One day, a neighbor set the trap, and caught Tiger and took him to the shelter. When the neighbor next door called to make sure they would still be open, the woman at the shelter said they would be there for a half hour and she had to hurry. Mommy came home from work and found out what happened and was so relieved to see Tiger safe and sound. He was whisked to the vet and has been in the house ever since, where he has been loved and spoiled as he deserves.

We are so sad to hear that Catster will be closing for real this time. Mommy has had troubleaccessing the community pages for at least a year, but we would still check in when we could to catch up with iour friends. Mommy and I are doing fine, but we really miss playing on Catster. Please email us at Starling3@comcast.net if you want to stay in touch. That's Mommy's email. She's nit much of a Facebook person.

First of all, thank you all for remembeting Beauty's birthday. It means so much to my Mommy. Beauty was a special girl and will always be loved. Grandmom misses her every day and so does Mommy.

It's my 6th Gotcha Day. I can't believe it. I don't remember anythjng before I came i the house. Mommy tells me I used to be outside with the squirrels that I watch. I never even got one to keep. I never even caught a bird. No wonder I'm not a good hunter. I had my chances and blew them.Today will be no different than any other day. I will get anything I want and Mommy will tell me how special I am. I am looking forward to getting my new catnip mat that Mommy ordered from Friday. It's good to be Gotcha'd!


Thank you for remembering Tiny's Gotcha Day

Mommy misses him so much. She saw a cat on a commercial who looked like Tiny when he was a kitten and she was so sad. Tiny was a lot of fun. He was a good uncle to me. He taught me to play, he showed me the best places to watch birds, he taught me how to beg for treats and how to make Mommy spoil me. Mommy says he was so good ag the vet the day she brought him inside. Tiny was always easygoing and loved to have fun. Thank you all for remembering him on his Gotcha Day.
