Dear Catster Member,

The Humane Society of the U.S.

Meow meow!

June has arrived and that means that summer is right around the corner! School is out, the BBQ is hot and it's time to start hunting down the latest and greatest in the world of Catster.

Celebrate Catster Dads!
Once again, our fabulous Pet Poetry Group has created a purrrrrfect stroll of our handsome Catster dads - check them out here and join by simply tagging your favorite photo with "We Love Dad 06".

What Would Your Pets Say?
A perfect gift idea for dad is the pawsitively incredible book "Tails of Devotion" by Emily Scott Pottruck. Emily asked all sorts of people, from the famous to the homeless, "If you and your animals could communicate via paper, what would you say to each other?" The answers are totally heartwarming and will really make you think about your love for your own pets. One of the many reasons we recommend this as a gift for dad is that 100% of the all proceeds from the book are going to charitable causes. You can make dad smile and raise money for animal welfare organizations at the same time - big purrs to that!

Americas favorite feline, Garfield, has a new movie in theatres June 16th. Garfield is mistaken for a look-alike, regal cat that has inherited a castle and savors the royal treatment afforded by his loyal four-legged subjects. Now you can give your cat the Royal treatment and enter to win one of ten deluxe activity centers from Hagen.

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. We love hearing how Catster has affected you, our furtastic community, and your animals - keep the stories pouring in to

I posted the pages for my four cats last June, thinking that it was a fun way to show off my beautiful girls. Little did I realize that what I first considered to be a cool way to spend a little time online would turn into a vital support group during a painful and difficult time. In a 6 month period, we lost two of our cats and had another go through three consecutive surgeries. Through all of this, going to Catster has provided me a brief respite during an indescribably sad time. The cats and their guardians are just so amazing -- most everyone feels the same about their cats as I do about mine; there is no need to explain oneself or to justify spending money on surgery for a cat (I get enough of the "it's just a cat" judgements at work). Whether the purrmails are expressing concern, giving support, or lending a good belly-laugh, Catster has become an invaluable way for me to deal, to grieve, and to celebrate those four little beings who are so very special to me.

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