Ted, I am so very sorry to hear this awful, fucking news. Cancer Bites.

You may not remember me, but I was a very active Catster back in the day, and we did meet in person a couple of times. Cancer has visited my home more than once since my happy days on Catster, and I’m deeply sorry that it has now visited yours.

Ted, I don’t know if you realize the ripple effect of Catster and Dogster, but you changed lives. You created a community that brought people and their pets together, in a way no one had done before. I have lasting and very real friendships today, that I would never have had without Catster. A group of us Catsters now do the Avon Breast Cancer Walk together every year — we would never have known each other without Catster. So thank you for creating that amazing community of devoted cat and dog lovers.

You and your family are in my thoughts, my purrs, and I will honor your request to share funny and beautiful things with you. For starters, just think about all of those crazy things that happened on Catster, like kitty marriages, divorces, and custody battles. Oy!
