Official Starcats Members

Updated December 27, 2022

Dedicated With Love to Skitten Skatten, 1980-1993, The World's Best Starcat.

And to my dad, who was instrumental in my choosing the name "Starcats" and getting me online.

My dad, Knute F. Dobkins, December 13, 1921 - January 21, 2012. Dad, you're my hero. I miss you so.

My brother Knute F. Dobkins, Jr., October 17, 1955 - September 20, 2015. Brother, you left too soon.

My mother Bettye Jean Dobkins, August 5, 1927 - May 23, 2018, Mom, we miss you so.

My youngest brother Mack, February 18, 1962 - September 3, 2021. Missing you so.

Photo of Official Starcat Miss Kitty taken in August 2010

In Memoriam -- Miss Kitty, a true Starcat, born circa 1993 to January 17, 2016. Miss Kitty was anywhere from 20 to 23 years old. She showed up as a stray at my 20 unit apartment complex and promptly adopted it/us as her home. Miss Kitty was fed, loved, housed, and given veterinarian assistance by many of us. She was the most determined, brave, funny, and enduring feline I've ever met.

Ricky and Jose are (and have been) beloved neighborhood friends of mine since 2004. They bring Joy, solace and comfort when I meet them on my walks.

The Legacy Lives On!!

Meet Uno Shiloh Saqqara [Shiloh], He came to live with us on November 21, 2020. He was a rescue lovingly fostered by a friend of our Veternarian. How could I resist this licorice jelly bean!?

Meet Orange Man, aka Buggie's Orange Man or The OM. He's the newest Starcat. He came to live with us on 2/21/09. He was a stray that took shelter in our courtyard and I couldn't resist him!

It is with great sadness that I tell you Orange Man crossed over on December 20, 2022. He is forever present. Forever in my heart.

Honorary Stardog, ZEKE
Year 2000-July 21, 2009
Rest in Peace in the heart of Sirius!
Zeke, beloved friend to my sister Bettye and wife Kathleen

Honorary Starcats

Cecil the Lion, King of Hwange Park, Zimbabwe

Cecil was lured from the protected reserve named Hwange Park by Dentist Walter Palmer and his hunting guide. Palmer poached Cecil using a crossbow. Cecil was a protected lion and wearing a GPS tracking collar. Cecil was shot with a crossbow and survived for 40 hours until shot by Palmer with a gun.

Marjan, the Lion of Kabul, Afghanistan, died in 2002 as a result of neglect and war. His humble keeper did all he could to keep Marjan safe, warm and fed.
