Man, I think I need to get my mom one of those Calming Collars! She is stressing out about the move. So to help her destress, celebrate the move and spend some time with our friends, we're throwing a party!
It's going to be held in my Catster Fun Time group, and there will be plenty of food, music, and fun! We were going to start it tomorrow morning, but let's make it a weekend thing! We probably won't be in much today, but we'll be around on and off tomorrow. Mom's also sitting on dogs until tomorrow, so she's been busy with that.
So please stop by and hang out - I'd love to see you all there!

Well, now that my mom has spilled the news to all her friends, I finally get to tell all my friends!
My mom got a new job and we're moving to Montana. Now, I've only ever lived in Idaho and even though I've visited Montana, I'm still a little nervous. But my pals Gunnie and Peekie say that I'll like being a Big Sky kitty. But they also say there's bears and fires there - that sounds kinda scary! Mom assures me we'll be safe though.
I'm still planning on having a party Sunday - I'll finalize details Thursday or Friday. But after Sunday we probably won't be here too often for a little bit while we pack and move and lose our Internet for awhile. So don't worry if you don't see us around. We'll be back as soon as we can!
That's all for today - talk to you kitties soon!

Guess what friends! I have big news! But I can't tell you right now. :) But soon, very soon!
And to celebrate my news, and the anniversary (a little late) of my group Catster Fun Time, I'm going to be throwing a party! Probably on Sunday. I hope you can all make it! It's going to be a blast!
I'll be back ...

First we want to send our purrs to all the kitties affected by fire, flood and storms. I sure hope everyone is ok!!
So, as you all know, it's been HOT. And our apartment doesn't have AC so it gets pretty miserable in our place. So the other night mom decided to try to cool me down by wetting my fur. Umm.. it may be hot mom, but I'm not that desperate! So I showed her! When she went to bed, I laid my wet self right on top of her. HAHAHA! Take that mom!

So, awhile ago, there was a time in Catsterland where people were angry about something (I forget what) and many friends were leaving and unhappy. It was very similar to the atmosphere today. To help lighten the mood back then, I created Catster Fun Time.
Well, it is time for me to bring it back! Please go and check it out. It's not active right now, but let's change that! Everyone is invited to come play games and hang out. Have a game idea? Please go right ahead and start it. This group is for everyone!
Mom and I also decided that since there was no World's Coolest Contest this year, that we're going to hold a photo contest. We haven't worked out all the details, but it will be coming soon. In fact, if you have ideas for categories, please leave them in the comments below or Pmail us.
Come on, kitties! Let's play!

I only have a moment, but I just wanted to pass on a few things.
I am loving the letters you guys are writing to HQ. They are well reasoned, articulate and well done. Kudos to you all! I will be writing mine tonight or tomorrow.
Please be sure you are sending them to HQ, and not just publishing them in your diary. I'm afraid they might be missed there.
Also, please be willing to give them time to respond. I know we're all upset now, but it is the weekend and we might not get responses immediately. Just something to keep in mind.
It's nice to see Catsters coming together and working toward a goal. This is the spirit I remember and love!
Love you all!

*Monida steps up to the podium and looks around at the group gathered. She taps the mic. "Testing. Testing. Good"*
Dear Ladies and Gentlecats. I'm sure it's no surprise as to why I've gathered you all here. I am a DDP today, and that means I should be out celebrating. But I'm not. In fact, today I'm very saddened and angry.
Mom and I woke up this morning to read that the Tabbies of Trout Towne were leaving. This is unacceptable. Apparently bad stuff has been posted on the homepage. I never see the homepage, but mom did see the cat copter thing when a coworker forwarded it to her. She thought for sure it would never, ever be on Catster. But lo and behold ...
But let me get to my point. This is OUR site. And if we don't like what's happening to it, let's do something about it. Write HQ. Call HQ. Leave messages on their Facebook page. When a group bands together, our voices are heard. There's been countless examples of how social media is influencing companies. So let your voices be heard!!
We're going to make this site fun again. That's my challenge to YOU. That means Tabbies, sorry, but you're not allowed to leave. Because if you did, this place would be overrun with BURDS! BURDS, Tabbies, BURDS!
And you know who else isn't allowed to leave? YOU. That's right, YOU! I know we all get busy sometimes, and that's OK. And if you need a break, by all means take it. But then come back. Because we have friends who need encouraging words, advice and a place to escape the troubles of the "real world."
Go out and make some new friends. Join some new groups. Leave a message on someone's photo, and I can guarantee you'll bring a little bit of happiness to that kitty's family. And who knows, maybe you'll just have turned a horrible day into an OK one for them.
Thank you for your attention, today. I will now take any questions anyone may have, and afterward, I hope you will all join me for a niptini and some mousie snacks in the conference room.

Well, it seems every time mom promises me that I'll get some extra Catster time, things come up and I can't get her to type for me. Grr. Sorry about that!
I got a rosie not too long ago from an anonymouse! I wonder who it was - thank you for the gift!
I also want to say thanks to Buddy and Gunner and Peekie for the gifts they've given me, too! That is so nice of you guys!
Now, as some of you know, I like to sleep under the covers. I especially like to sleep under the covers all snuggled up against mom. Just because it's summer and the temperatures are climbing doesn't mean this changes. But for some reason, my mom doesn't want to snuggle with me under the covers when it's 85 in our apartment. :( I can't figure out why. It makes me sad, but mom says it makes her sweaty. Whatever mom.

Hi friends -
I've got full-strength purrs going for so many of our friends, and I was hoping you might join me.
A lot of you know Tigger's family - his dad has been helping take care of stray cats and is so wonderful to have adopted some of them. Well, one of his kitties, Bent Ear, has an obstructed bladder and is at the cat hospital. Can you please purr hard for him?
Then my friend Mouser went to the bridge today. :( Maybe you could stop by and send him some purrs, too.
I've also hear that Midnight of Finney and Lacey's family and Blizz the Catfather have been ill. I haven't heard how they're doing, but I sure hope they're feeling better. Purrs to you guys too!!
Sending you all love and purrs. I hope everyone is doing well!
P.S. If you would like to contribute to Bent Ear's medical fund, you can do so at: Bent Ear Fund.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there! Hope you all had a very special day!
I went outside today! Mom bought me a new harness since mine was a little, um, tight. She actually had to get me a dog-sized one. *hangs head* She's hoping that maybe I'll start to take some walks and lose some of my fluffiness.
So anyway, she shoved me in the harness and off to the lawn we went. It was TERRIFYING! I kept trying to hide right beside her stayed as low to the ground as I possibly could. There were people talking, kids playing ... so scary! Eventually I got a little braver and looked around a bit. Then mom figured that was enough for the day and we went back inside. Now I'm relaxing.
What have all been up to lately!
