Dear Catster Member,

We know it's March 'cause why else would we be feeling so darn lucky? Could it be that Saint Patty's Day is right around the corner? Or is it that you can't shake a shamrock without seeing the world's cutest and cuddliest kitties all in one place? Yep, here at Catster HQ we don't need a pot o' gold to tell us how fortunate we are to be part of all of this kitty love. And there's no better way to spread the wealth than to update you on what we're doing to make our community even better. Keep on reading...

Here's How A Hug Can Help!
Bounce® and your hug will help provide either cats or dogs of the ASPCA some much needed love - $10,000 and a year's supply of pet food! The donation will be used to help improve the lives of homeless animals across North America, including medical exams, vaccinations, and spay and neutering. So click here to give your faithful friend that extra hug they deserve. Love your pet, not the hair - Bounce® helps repel the hair.

CatsterPlus' Special

So let's make March their lucky month and purr out a treat to the newest members in our community to make 'em feel welcome. Or head-butt a few stars in the direction of your bestest pals. Or sign-up for Catster Plus where you can give out our specially seasoned Rosettes. This month, you lucky cat, it's a green Shamrock.

The Pet Health Zone Is The Cat's Meow
Catnip isn't the only plant sought after by cats. Find out what plants may be toxic on VPI's Pet Health Zone. "Spring Garden Safety for Your Pet" outlines some of the most dangerous buds to keep away from your cat. Did you know VPI Pet Insurance offers coverage for plant poisoning? Also, what does your breed of cat say about your personality? Are there common traits between you and your feline companion? Sniff out the clues on the Zone. And while you're there, enter March's Favorite Pet Joke contest! One lucky winner will receive a $250 gift basket loaded with pet prizes.

Notes From The Community.
Check out this pawesome note we got from Basil's mom!

Let me tell you, Catster has been a true blessing to me. When my beloved Basil was alive, Catster was a source of fun. We met lots of great people and kitties on here and have formed real friendships. We lost our beautiful girl back in October. I honestly do not know what I would do without Catster now and I can't begin to imagine how I would have ever, ever made it through losing her without our friends we made here. There really aren't words to explain how much her page means to me....and it is all thanks to Catster!

This is the sort of heart-warming story we like to hear! Keep purring your stories of Catster love and support to Randi at Dogster dot com!

Show The World You're A Catster!
Proud to be a Catster? Then show off with Catster stickers. Place them on bumpers, binders, water bottles and water bowls. They're free and tail-wagging fun. Simply send a self addressed stamped envelope to: Catster HQ, Attn: Catster Stickers, 555 De Haro Street #350, San Francisco, CA 94107 and we'll purr a Catster sticker right back to you!

Well, that's all the news that's fit to meow out. Keep your ears perked for our next newsletter. Until then...

May all animals be happy and safe,
Catster HQ
Catster, here kitty, kitty!
