Hurrah!

Well, I had been stewing for a while because none of the kitties at the shelter I volunteer at were on Petfinder. Turns out that no one has the time to maintain the lists, and they're lucky if they can keep up with the dogs. I said, hey...I do webmaster-y stuff all the time, what's an extra hour a week? So Sunday, I put the first batch of cats on Petfinder. Tuesday, I took pictures of the rest (which was quite a job), updated the shelter's adoption page, and uploaded those to Petfinder, too...so now all our kitties are online! Yee-HAW!

(and yeah, it was sad to finally get the chance to upload my sad, dear Moonshadow kitty for the first time, only to have to remove her Tuesday after she crossed Rainbow Bridge, but I'm sure that I'll find some way to remember her in a meaningful fashion...maybe I'll sponsor a cat cage in her memory...)

I just had to tell someone how nice it was seeing all those great kitties finally get their own little web pages...most people just look at me, like "Huh?" when I talk about it. But I am really excited about it (and I don't get excited about much at my age )

I'm so happy you were able to put the kitties on the web - now I'm sure they will get a good looking at!

Great job giving more time to provide another possible avenue for these kitties to get adopted.

How wonderful of you to do this. Most of us arent computer savy enough to do that. Im sure this makes a difference in these kittys lives. Bless you for taking the time and effort to do this.

Duh! I was so excited I forgot to provide a link...

http://www.petfinder.org/pet.cgi?action ... &preview=1

Goofy is the guy I always call Mr. Bojangles, my big, fierce scaredy-cat...he is doing so much better in his new, bigger condo, really starting to mellow out and get socialized. I love that cat all to pieces. So impressive looking (gorgeous yellow eyes), and his personality is as big as he is. He's the one who would come home with me today if I coud have a second cat (I must have a thing about psychiatric special-needs cats, Assumpta was just like him when we got her)

I could go on forever about them, but I'd better stop before I start (orange tiger lovers, check out Archie, and black cat people, take a look at Spooky, who's our featured kitty).

I'm waaayyyy too happy about all this Petfinder stuff...I really hope our cat adoptions pick up as a result

Pokey looks exactly like my Stephen! (wish she had Pokey's disposition!)

I think Archie is a cutie! I wish Stephen would let me have another kitty!
