*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!

I'm so mad at my mom! She left me for a WEEK! I was stuck at the kennel. Oh, I let her have it when she finally picked me up. I yelled at her for two hours. I let her know exactly what I thought about her abandoning me. You can check out the new video on my page and see what I had to tell her.
But to make it up to me, she promised me more Catster time. So I'm sorry for any special days I missed, but hopefully I should be around more!
Love ya all!

Happy Easter to all my wonderful friends!
Thanks for celebrating my Gotcha Day with me! Mom promises to do a better thank you soon. We've been meaning to write sooner, but things kept coming up. Sheesh. Parents, huh.
And thanks to all the Easter bunny kitties who have decorated my page so nicely! You are all so kind!
Have a wonderful holiday! We'll talk to you soon!

I have a new fun game I like to play late at night and early in the morning. It's called meowing nonstop in a super high, pitifully sad meow. It's driving mom insane. Hehehe.
She's starting to get really annoyed by it. She's sure there's nothing wrong, but she doesn't know why I've started doing it. I used to be just as vocal when I first moved in, but eventually stopped. She figured I was just getting used to the place.
She's tried ignoring me, but I'm so loud she worries the neighbors will complain.
Anyway, if anyone has any advice, please don't share. I'm having too much fun! MOL!

Oh my! Monster's mom's article about Catster has led to lots of new friends!! Welcome new friends! If you haven't met them, I'd like to introduce you to Sugar and Spice! They are so much fun and so friendly!
And this is Boo Boo and Talli. They also found Catster through the article.
Yay for new friends!

Hi Pals! Thanks for celebrating my DDP with me! Thanks for the comments, pmail and rosettes! I sure had a fun day!
I have so many things to meow about, but I only have a few minutes, so I'll have to tell you about them later. But I have a quick question. A few days ago there was a Diary of the Day kitty who joined because they read Monster's mom's article. Anyway, they didn't have any friends and I wanted to send a friend request, but didn't in time. Did any of you happen to friend them and know who I'm talking about?
Hope everyone is doing well! Talk to you all soon!

Hi again friends! It's my good pal Toby's first birthday today! Happy birthday Toby!! Toby lives in England, and has a fun diary. Be sure to check it out if you haven't already!
P.S. I forgot to mention in my last diary, that I have high hopes for the redesign. It has to be good because the screen shot has a picture of Toki on it! :)
