In recent months, Catster and Catblogger peeps have been stepping out from behind their web personas to meet longtime online friends. This week Im spotlighting some of those meetups.

The 4th of July was celebrated in Michigan by a group of Midwestern Catster moms who’d had two previous meetups. Catster mom Terry gives the report:

It was the magic of Catster friendships that brought 5 lovely kitty moms (moms to Madison, Lily, Piewackit, Tessie and Ginny) together from across the nation for a wonderful extended 4th of July weekend. And, this was not the first time and surely not the last.

The ladies all enjoyed the company of five kitties at Madisons house, which was much needed as we all missed our babies while being away. Madison truly is a miracle kitty, for she came very close to losing her eye. Thanks to the love, devotion and determination on her moms part, Madison is keeping her eye and is doing nothing but getting better and better. The Power of the Paw and great friendships is truly magical.

This was our third crazy cat lady get together, which was further extended when Piewackit & Ginny “dangerous beans” moms went to visit Flowie’s mom in Illinois (photo at right). Yet ANOTHER purrfect visit and wonerful time!

The Catster mom get togethers started last summer in Chicago, when our friends decided on a whim to get together, as we all got along so well on line and our kitties all love each other on Catster! Our second visit was at Lilys house in Minnesota, with this most recent group event at Madisons house in Michigan. There is already another Catster parent meeting planned in Canada between Isiss mom and Ginny dangerous beans mom; were going international!
