To HQ - Old Furts Day -

Mom has has a LOT of special kittys in her life - and she never had one live to over 14. They had hyperthyroid, kidney failure, stomach cancer, all kinds of things. Jesse James has had a few problems and several times in the past 3 years Mom thought she would lose him. Especially when he had the tumors removed in the spring. Me?? I've always been a tough little cat - and I just go in for shots. I am a brat and I make her nuts - she says I will live to 25 just to be able to keep making her nuts. What Mom has realised since joining Old Furts is - how lucky she is. Every day with an Old Furt is a gift from God. Each time one of the Old Furts gets sick or crosses the Bridge, it breaks her heart. She knows how hard and sad it is for their humans - because it's happened too many times to her. So Mom thinks that we should have a special celebration of Old Furts on Catster. We should request an Old Furts day - and celebrate our old age together. We could even have a King and Queen Old Furt for the day. What do you all think? HQ it would be soo cool if we could do something like this! We have so many Senior Kittys on Catster and it would be a celebration of their lives. Purrs Maximus ;c;;c;;c;;c;;c;;c;;c;;c;

    We may not have any Old Furts in our house, but we think this is a great idea!

    Ooooooooooh!! That's a fabulous idea. All kitties are special, but just ask any mom or dad about their Olde Furt kitty to get some idea how special they become in their "golden years." We just get better and better! It would be an honor if we could be honored. :) And not just the Olde Furts group, we mean ALL older kitties should be honored. There are many groups for older kitties -- even a 20/20 group for cats over 20. I want to get in that group, as soon as I'm old enough! Just say "yes," HQ.

    We agree with every-cat else. A special day for us "Olde Furts" would be really wonderful. I think that we all deserve our own day.

    Us olduns are very special, so a day just for us would be great. Please think about it HQ. There are an awful lot of seniors on Catster that would appreciate their very own day.

    Old Furts day is a great idea guys, but why wait for HQ to give you a day? Make your own day, pick a day, create a graphic, share it and plan special events for the day. The best events on Catster don't come from HQ, they are made by the kitties here!!!! Pronounce a day yours and go for it!!!!

    I think I'm an old furt too. I'm in the double digits, and I'm a teenager! :-O *screams* Although, I still look kinda kittenish :)) I act kinda kittenish too!

    Hmmm. The younger fiends are not consistent in holding me in the high esteem an older cat deserves, so this might be a useful idea. However, I prefer "Dowager;" Olde Furt is so unladylike. Carry on, furts!

    Maybe a SENIORS Day instead of an Olde Furts day, since Olde Furts is a group. Of course I\'m an Olde Furt myself, and I love all my OF friends, but as Scootie meowed, there are many other groups out there for older kitties. By the way, EVERYday in my house is Olde Furts Day! I make sure of that! ;c;

    oh, my! Scooter, I think Baby uses olde furt only when she is Shakespeare's sister... ...but her brother calls me a "hen." Hmmmph. A grudge joust between two dowagers in palanquins could prove interesting.

    Yes, a "Senior Day" would be a great idea! Perhaps catster could also have special days to honor special needs/handicapped kitties, kittens, and adopted/rescued cats.
