When I removed Hallie Baloo and Mak's pages off the other site this weekend, I didn't know how I would feel. It turns out that I was sad for just a bit, then I was glad to not feel like I was neglecting them any longer, or at least their profiles. There are friends that they will not see again, but the really important ones are linked to them in ways other than that website. So we move forward.

And forward it is. Wilson, Hallie and Mak are all over at Piewackit's page tonight, posting as if they were really talking. That is becoming a daily routine here at Cathugger and I am enjoying the heck out of that. Seeing Mom's and Dad's interact with their animals is very entertaining and the posts that some make thinking they were on another profile has given me some righteous belly laughs (ok yes I mean you April).

This brings me to those wonderful emoticons that Cathugger has provided us with. No one has to show any of us how to use those. Go ahead and give us the ability to show a mood and we will take that and run with it. Yes ... we have MOODS ... and thank you Dale and Neil for giving us the tools to express that.

Let's make Cathugger the best place in the internet world, we already have a great start!

Most of today was yucky and cold. The sun didn't come out until 4:00 p.m. Yep, that's right! When the sun came out, it got warm enough for Mommy to open two upstairs windows for us to enjoy. Then she came along with her camera when three of us were sitting on the same window perch. Don't worry, this perch won't collapse as she made it extra strong by using three pieces of industrial strength Velcro she got from a place called Michael's. The little piece of Velcro that came with the perch didn't work on holding up 25 lbs worth of cats as it said on the box it came in. It did collapse a couple years ago (probably from Merl sitting on it with Sampy).

Anyway, we posed purrty good, especially me. In the background you can see that our redbud tree is blooming nicely. About time, I say as it's a week overdue.

Anyway, Mommy loaded these pics onto her page and called the album "Three Brothers". Merl didn't want to participate in this photo shoot. And of course, Cam only poses by herself.

All in all, it turned out to be a better day when the sun came out except for one thing: Ants are back!! Mommy hates those awful things! They keep coming into the kitchen starting every April.

Well, that's about it for my mega blog. Enjoy!

Purrs & Breeps,

Mama decided to just write a blog under whichever cat she happens to be signed in under instead of picking one... mol! Today it's me!!

We had an awful storm last night but mama wasn't home for it. She was at work. We all seem to have handled it well. No major fur has been thrown about... although mama thinks someone has been nibbling on Speckle again. Her neck fur looks shorter. Mama KNOWS she can't nibble on the back of her own neck so it's somecat else! And she thinks Speckle might nibble on herself some as the fur on her sides is getting a bit patchy too.

The only noticeable effect from the storm, which was the first mama's seen with hail, is in the azalea bushes out front. They've been beaten pretty bad! They're all droopy now. Hopefully they'll perk back up as that's where my furmom hangs out sometimes! And my brother too. I smelled him this morning but he doesn't talk to me.

What happens if the ship sinks? I do not see any instructions anywhere about a safe place or what to do about the ship sinking.Do you think we can walk on the water like GOD? We will get our Feet wet!!!!I do not know if I would like this.Can we part the water instead so we do not get our feet wet?

Why I am HERE and not THERE...

Late last September, Ted & Lori gave me the boot...

Let me back up a bit:

On Sept. 16, I logged in to Catster after an extended break. I noticed that my cat pages had been "re-arranged". Though I thought it odd (because they had been compliant with the OLD policy), I re-set them back the way I had them. I checked my P-mail, nothing; I checked the No to Nutro Group, there were some comments about HL & censorship and a proposal to change the name. Curious, I searched around the forums and friends diaries to see what had happened. I found nothing that shed any light on it. So I figured the comments were in regards to the GROUP.

So, I wrote a note to the admins of the GROUP regarding my feelings on the proposed name change. In that note, I SPECULATED on the reasons that Catster might be censoring things... Keep in mind, I still didn't know for sure what had actually happened. By this time, it was very late for me, and I was too tired to pursue the matter any further.

I logged in the next couple days, picked up a P-mail from one of the other GROUP admins, but had RL issues that needed attention; so again, I did not investigate any further.

Then my car broke down, and both of my computers died. Needless to say, I was pre-occupied.

When the dust had settled a bit, I had the BRILLIANT idea of checking my Catster specific e-mail.

THAT is when I FINALLY saw Lori's notice (Sept 7) that they were "cleaning up" my personal pages because they were implementing a new policy change. There were also a couple of strongly worded follow up admonishments (Sept 23) for my actions of re-setting the pages.

After canceling my CatsterPlus subscription, I replied to both Lori & Ted that I had acted BEFORE I actually SAW the policy change. They came back saying they didn't believe me because of the (private) note I had written to the GROUP admins. They then said flat out that I was unwelcome and removed my account.

I've replied that their assumptions regarding that note are incorrect, but I doubt it will make any difference to them. They seem to have their minds made up.

I was a member for 2 years. I initially joined Catster because one of my cats was going through serious liver issues, and I found a very supportive and knowledgeable community. I did my best to return that support and knowledge and I have missed that interaction.

I would like to say a heartfelt "Thank You" to Dale, Niel and the Archangel crew for putting this site together. I look forward to re-connecting with friends and acquaintances, as well as hopefully making some new friends.
