Due to a change in website platforms, a necessary step to enhance and update the CAT FANCY magazine website, it will no longer be possible to host Club Cat. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, Club Cat will close and members will no longer be able to accrue points. Members with sufficient reward points have until Jan. 10, 2014, to redeem their points for any of the cat products currently available in the Club Cat Rewards Catalog. On Jan. 15, 2014, Club Cat members with 25 reward points or higher will be automatically entered into a raffle to win special prizes. Raffle prize winners will be notified after Jan. 31, 2014. Points for the final Cat of the Day will be awarded on Jan. 1, 2014. New programs similar to Cat of the Day will be announced with the launch of the new website, so look for further announcements. Thank you to everyone who joined Club Cat! 01/31/2014 12:00.00 AM
REMINDER: Members with sufficient reward points can redeem points again on Jan. 6, 2014 and have until Jan. 10, 2014, to redeem their points for any of the cat products currently available in the Club Cat Rewards Catalog while supplies last. 01/10/2014 12:00.00 AM
We will be temporarily disabling the ability to redeem reward items from the Club Rewards catalog from Sunday, December 22, 2013 to Sunday, January 5, 2014.

You will be able to begin redeeming rewards again on Monday, January 6, 2014. 12/20/2013 01:47.27 PM
In an effort to improve our website for our visitors, we will be changing some of our service providers. We do not expect to experience any technical difficulties. However, if you are unable to access our website, please be assured it will be temporary as we transition to the new service. 10/19/2013 12:00.00 AM

The Snowman Song
"I am a little snowman.
I am so fat and round.
I started from a snowflake
.....that fell upon the ground.
I have two buttons for my eyes,
.....a great big scarf of red,
I have a carrot for a nose,
.....a hat upon my head.
Watch
.....me
.......as
.........I
...........melt
.............to
...............the
.................ground."

"The sun came out,
And the snowman cried.
His tears ran down
.....on every side.
.......His tears ran down
Till the spot was cleared.
.........He cried so hard
That he disappeared."- Margaret Hillert

My life
I was sent over the Rainbow Bridge on March 22, 2010, because I had severe renal failure.

Come visit me, Gurken.
