Some possible new homes for us Catster refugees

Here are the other cat sites I have located so far, most are from other Catster furiends, a few I dug up on my own. I am not including FB pages, I know a lot of you have no interest in FB, and I don't use it much myself. I really don't think that FB gives us what we need to replace Catster. Anyone who feels so inclined is encouraged to check them out.

Any additions, evaluations or opinions you have are welcome, preferably as a comment here so all may see it, or via pawmail or my main email: stargazer711@yahoo.com if you prefer to keep it private.

Thanks, and hopefully we can together find a new home for all of us soon to be homeless kitties!

Just wanted to let all of our furiends know that it is the gotcha day for Tiger Lilly,
a sweet little Bengal kitty. We love those spots! It would be pawesome if some of our furiends could send her a prezzie or pawmail of concatulations!

Thank You all!

 

Worried about all our kitty furiends in the really cold- areas

Sending warm purrs to all of our furiends in the frozen north and east, including Canada. We are so lucky here in Calooneyfornia, it was only down to 30 here last night and should get up to 60 or so today, much nicer than much of the country and Canada.

We are really worried about all the outdoor and feral kitties in the really cold areas, and hope they are finding warm places to curl up!

Today is our furiend Leila's birthday. She is a cute playful Ocicat girl, just like me. We would love it if some of our furiends would send her a birthday prezzie.

Thanks, Saphira and her pawrents

 

OMC - COTW and My gotcha day in the same week! So Cool!

Daddy was getting ready to help me put something in my diary about how this Saturday will be the second anniversary of my Gotcha day, which for some reason the pawrents think is some sort of special day in our house, MOL!

Then, daddy checks his email and gets REALLY excited! He shows me the Catster community page and there I am, Cat of the Week!!! Such an honor! A big THANK YOU to the Catster Top Cats for selecting me for this honor, guess it will be a triple good week, my COTW pick, my gotcha day, and Catmus all in the same week! Right now daddy wants to join me sleeping, but more to follow in the morning!

 

Saphira has been acting VERY strangely recently!

Another one from her dad: As I may have mentioned somewhere on here, one thing Saphira HATES is being put into her kitty jail (AKA cat carrier) for trips to the vet and claw trimmings and such, and I have the scars to prove it! We took to leaving it in our bedroom, where she spends a lot of her time, so she would at least be used to seeing it around. Before we did that, she would run and hide any time I took it from its hiding place. She is way overdue for a trim, so one morning a week or two ago when I noticed her INSIDE the carrier, I quickly shut the door and meowmy and I quickly dressed and it was off for her trim, no trauma for either of us. That is not the really strange part! A day or two later I was feeding them (I have mentioned that they are very undemanding about feeding and we often have to call them to eat), Viola showed up as usual when called to eat, but Saphira was nowhere to be found, a bit unusual for her. FINALLY after a few minutes we see her... Walking our of her kitty jail, she had been napping inside! Since then she often curls up inside of it for a rest. I would have thought that with her early bad experiences with it, she would avoid the darn thing at all costs, but hey, it is little surprises like this that make being owned by cats so interesting. Have to put in a little plug from daddy, since we celebrated Viola's first gotcha anniversary day earlier this month and Saphira's second will be right after Catmus: They are still she best behaved and most entertaining kitties we have ever served under, both are just absolute joys, and we feel so lucky that our daughters decided that Saphira would make a great Catmus present for us two years ago!

 

I caught Saphira purring again!!!

Anyone familiar with Saphira's story knows that while she is a unique and delightful feline and an absolute joy to have around, she has one un-feline characteristic: She hardly ever purrs audibly! In the almost two years she has graced our furmily, she has actually been heard to purr maybe five or six times, and most of those have been very quiet gentle almost inaudible purrs. We have always accepted the infrequent purrs as just part of who she is, and since in every other way she is almost purrfect (sorry about the pun!) we never let this bother us.

One of the things that Saphira LOVES is being groomed, if she sees me putting on her grooming glove she will run over to me to have her spots "polished up". I had managed to hide the glove from myself for a couple of months, so when I found it last week (I had hidden it under an astronomy magazine), I immediately went into the living room, where both of our Oci girls love to nap during the day, lots of sunlight through a big bay window and nice comfortable sofa, love seat, and easy chair. Saphira was curled up on the big sofa as usual, so I sat down beside her and started stroking her, and she sure seemed to have missed her grooming sessions, arching her back into the glove as I stroked. Then it happened! That rarely heard sound of Saphira purring! And not just the quiet gentle almost inaudible ones we usually hear, but a nice moderately loud motor revving up! Clearly, her purring systems are working fine, she is just very selective about when she chooses to use them. Why she does not do it more often remains a mystery, as she seems such a contented kitty most of the time and like most Ocis she just loves being around her humans.

Just one more delightful enigma about this most wonderful feline companion and family member!

 

Another sad goodbye to a sweet furiend...

Yesterday we received the sad news that our sweet orange furiend Kaci Sunshine took a turn for the worse and sadly meowmy had to let her go. If anyone feels like leaving her a message of support or a prezzie, her Catster page is Kaci Sunshine.

Thanks!

Happy Birthday to my fellow Lavender Oci friend Zuzu. For anybody who feels like leaving her a prezzie, here is her page:

She is really beautiful and sweet, like all us Ocis are!

 

DDP for me? Thank you Catster!

Daddy (my diary assistant, sometimes food person, and mousie toy tosser) just told me our diary is a Daily Diary Pick today! I was getting a little worried, my sisfur Viola had quite a run of these going, and now she is only ahead by two! Thank you Catster, and all my furiends here.
