What is Furship?
"Furship Equals Friendship" is the Guild's Motto. Our Mission is
to combine Friendship and Fun, although we tackle serious issues
from time to time, for Guild Members and Claw Members. The
Guild promotes Claw, friendship, and goodwill for all members
and cats on the web through many activities and contests.
Furship Members always have a helping paw to lend and
support all Claw members in contests and more.
I've just added a Calendar for Birthdays and Special
Events, any member is free to use it. Pepe will be adding
Birthdays to it too.
Our Furship activities are:
Our newest activity is a SuperCat Story. You add
your purrsonal details, when you click on the page
25 points for telling Mysty the name of the Fairy,
and 80 points if you post your very own story on a page
with a link back to Furship or our story!
We wrote poems for our Meomie's at our Meomie's Day page
last year. You can add a poem this year. You can submit a link to your
Meomie's day page also. Either activity is 60 points!
Our activity this year includes writing in our Guestbook why your
Mother and Father are special and what kind of virtual gift you
would give them for 25 points. In addition we have Mother's Day tags

member gardens and see what's growing!
The Furship Chalet is celebrating Winter with CLAW at their

in the winter. There is a guestbook for members to mew as a furship
activity besides winter camp with CLAW - 25 point activity.

Storme has a bonus point activity too, I think she said something
about pawing the guestbook! All Furship kitties get additional
Furship points for taking the quiz too!
You can add a quilt square anytime. There is a guestbook you can
sign for a 25 point activity too.
the activity to new members. If you have a page send the link to Mysty.
It was updated with new vacations October 2004.
If you need help just ask. This is a 50 point activity.
Our visiting activity continues. Every 2 weeks or thereabouts
depending on the time the notice goes out etc. for two weeks you will
receive ten points for visiting a designated Member page and purrticipating
in an activity with a member, such as signing a guestbook, mewing
a guestbook, mewing on a forum, viewing a voting activity, sending a
card to someone who does not have a page or a similar activity. It is a
way of keeping and promoting Furship as our main activity. Other activities
and contests will still occur and continue. This activity is twenty points
as with pawing, but any visiting is always points.
- check this month's mewsletter for changes.
and leave a Thanksgiving thought for points in the Furship Dining Room's
guestbook. Thanksgiving is an all year thought. For this Thanksgiving the Guild
will be making an online Thanksgiving quilt. The page should be online soon,
but in the meantime the template to make your square is below.
The quilt is for members only.
The Holiday Candles are at Furship Candle. They will stay online and
be updated in the future, as will most of our pages. We appreciate
everyone's hard work and wonderful thoughts. You may want to visit
and add yours near the winter holidays. Mysty has created some candles
in paint shop, if you need one. This is open for the Holidays at present.
We will be having a Furriest Cat Contest with all of Claw sometime
in the future, as we did in the past with Furship.

I planned on reopening the Silver Tray, but was too busy with other furship
activities. Hopefully we can open it after the New Year. If you'd like to leave a card
or have one made, just ask Mysty. We will be holding an activity with our cards
in the coming year.
Furship Members can visit and leave pictures and more at the Family
place. You can sign up at My Family. We may be discontinuing this.
If any member wants to be MyfamilyCat, please let Mysty know.
The form at the Front Desk is working at present properly. so send your page
urls and your birthdays for the Memfur page and activities to Mysty.
Remember, too, if you wish to help out, we can always use help in
any capacity as a director or assistant etc. Right now we need of Directors,

Miss Pinkerton has the Furship Banner Exchange. She has offered to help
anyone make one too.
Furship Pawing is on hold until after the New Year. Each month the
winner is the Pawee and all members paw at that members door for entry.
You can do this in any way you like. You can send a card, tell a joke,
write something silly, send a picture of you pawing at a door, virtual catnip or
whatever. The Pawee selects the winner, whoever strikes their fancy and
gains entry. Silly? Purrobably, but should be a lot of Furship Fun. All
purrticipation is points and the Pawee gains 20 points. Just try to put
Furship somewhere in your mailing or let the pawee know something
for furship was sent afterwards, so you get credit. This activity will
usually run three weeks, with the fourth for announcing the winner
and preparing for the next pawing. If you don't understand this
activity just ask me.
Banners from our Furship Banner contest are on line at
Banner Contest. You can purroudly display any banner or card
found on that page or any of the Furship pages.
The Opening Catnap Contest is closed. Many of you found me napping at my
furravorite place, Mysty's Balcony. The Catnap Hall of Fame will remain there for awhile.
Mysty's thinking of leaving furravorite treats laying around this
year. So drop by and see if a special Furship point treat might be there,
of course mew have to be able to pick the right treat, teehee.
Please check often, there are new members and new listings.
Those without pages or any member, if you have an activity idea
that does not involve pages, please let us know. We want everyone
to be happy and participate, through activities, pages or through mews.
Please remember also, if you do not have a page, you can keep your
awards, cyber adoptions or the like in your Furship locker or anywhere
in the Lodge, just send mail and let us know.
I will still try to continue and list some new info here and update
information as well as the latest news and events.
