Dear Catster Member,

Hot Paws of Summer Photo Contest

Meow meow!

Although it's still officially the Dog Days of Summer we celebrate kitties everyday on Catster! We hope you all are soaking up the sun and spending lots of time pouncing and romping around in the grass.

Tag - you're it
Speaking of grass, don't forget to add fun tags to your super cool kittie photos so that other humans can find them. We've updated our photo tag search to make it even easier for you to do the most popular searches too!

New Messaging Feature
Check out the new Group Messaging Folder that was just added to your Catster Mailbox. If you have group messages set to be delivered to your Pawmail, they'll now automatically go into this folder. Now you won't have to sniff your group e-mails out-you'll know exactly which ones they are.

They call it CatsterPlus because it's extra fun
Have you ever wanted to give another kitty on the site a little something extra? Something to say how special they are? All kitties need love and in Catsterland, giving a Rosette is the best way. Plus members get 25 rosettes each month to give away. You will be sharing the love and helping to keep the servers on at Catster Headquarters. Try a week for free and play around with the furry fun features like rosettes, extra photo storage and the CatsterPlus forums. Join now!

It's a great time to join CatsterPlus because VPI Pet insurance is giving a $250 gift basket to one lucky plus subscriber this month.

From the Catster Community!
Here's another truly inspiring sentiment from the human of Squeakers...

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!!

Thanks for the story Squeakers (and family). We really love to hear from everyone. Please, keep the stories coming! Send them to: Randi [at] Dogster [dot] com.

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