Dear Catster Member,

Terrific Tabbies!

Meow meow!

Hello again to all of you fly-swatting, sunbeam-napping, summer-loving kittie cats! Here's the July scoop on the latest and greatest in the Caster community.

We Loves Catster? Who Loves Catster? You do!
We just celebrated first anniversary of the launch of CatsterPlus, our super fun subscription service for Catster power users. When we first went live with Plus we had no idea how many kitties would purr... after only a year we have almost 3,200 Plus kitties! Here's a big paw-clapping cheer of thanks! For those who still wanna get in on the fun, VPI Pet insurance is giving a $250 gift basket to one lucky new Plus subscriber this month.

Terrific Tabbies!
Have you checked out the Catster Group Terrific Tabbies? They are 515 members strong and growing! Recently, the TT's even organized their own book club! Meeeeeeow!

So Many Tails of Devotion!
Last month we asked you "If you and your animals could communicate via paper, what would you say to each other?" The result has been an amazing outpurring of emotion from the Catster community. Check out what your fellow kitties and their humans have to say to each other.

We'll place the favorites on a special Catster Haiku page next month with links back to your pups. Enter yours now!

From the Catster Community!
We wanted to share this amazing sentiment that we received from one of our users in response to last month's newsletter.

I have been really enjoying Catster lately. When I put my cat on Catster almost two years ago, I had no idea how involved I would get in other cats (and their humans') lives! I just loved looking at other cats, then using my writing ability for my cat's diary. I decided I wanted CatsterPlus, and before then, I thought that only CatsterPlus members were allowed on the forums. Boy was I wrong! Anyway, when I started Plus in late December, I went on the forums right away. I have met some wonderful kitties and kitty owners, and I have my favorite places to go and kitties to meow with. When one kitty (and young human owner) recently lost one of their beloved cats I loved being there to help comfort her, and was up very late (on a weeknight, too!) doing so, but it didn't matter. I will never forget it. I feel like I have more friends on Catster than I do in my own real life! My cat is even married!! Catster is the best and has improved so much since it started. I can't wait to see what is to come!!

We love hearing how Catster has affected you, our furtastic community, and your animals - keep the stories pouring in to Randi [at] Dogster [dot] com

May all animals be happy and safe,
Ted, John, Steven & Catster HQ
Catster, here kitty, kitty!
