They cheer us when we're blue and they love us when we're lonely. The least we can do is to bring our cats into the 21st century.

Creating a website for your cat is fun and easier than you might think. You can celebrate with your cat by posting his history in pictures, like postcard designer Janalee Faucher did for her late but great Action Cat. She used stories of Action Cat's life as captions.

You can jump in at any technological level you wantfrom creating the page from scratch in HTML (hypertext markup language) to easy-to-use pre-programmed templates, available over the Web.

Five simple steps are all it takes.

1. Planning: The best way to start a Web page is with the old-fashioned tools of pen and paper. Write down every element you want to put into your pages: Lists of links, email addresses for you or your cats (it's more common than you might think), graphics, stories and notes of what you like from other cat-centric sites.

For a multiple-page site, draw a map indicating which sections and pages will link to others. Although users browsing the Web don't always browse in page order, it's good to have a site plan. This makes the intended path through your site clearer. Plan your first page with a table of contents, linking to every other page on the site. You can later copy and paste this into subsequent pages, and users will be able to get to any page in your site from any other page.

2. Words and Pictures: Edit longer stories in a real word processing program like Microsoft Word, which has a reliable spell checker. You can cut and paste the text onto your page later.

Not sure what to write about? Ask yourself some questions. Did you adopt or buy your cat? How did you decide on his name? What's the funniest, sweetest, most unusual thing he ever did? Try telling a story from the cat's point of view. Or simply write a few lines to go with photos; a simple series of images and captions makes a great page.

I want to tell my cats story so bad Im about to burst with extreme excitement. Hes nine year old and until two.weeks ago we thought he a flame Point Himelayon. We met a fellow Rv person who told us whst he really is an when we googled the breed we were looking at images of our Mr. dawg P. Davis. Story behind his name. He can say No, nah for naka for snack. He can say Now demanding too! He can say mama and he conversates with us. Crawls into shower when he wants a bath. He demands to.have ice in his water. Will flat tell you when his cat box is dirty enough for his standerds. I love this site and i want more than anything to tell his story. He was dieing when we got him. He was littke enough to.set in my hand. He is known in every state ut hawaii and Alaska. Our work travels and people keep in touch just because of Mr. Dawg.
Sincerely,p Dawna K. Davis
