Random Flotsam

Why I am HERE and not THERE...

Late last September, Ted & Lori gave me the boot...

Let me back up a bit:

On Sept. 16, I logged in to Catster after an extended break. I noticed that my cat pages had been "re-arranged". Though I thought it odd (because they had been compliant with the OLD policy), I re-set them back the way I had them. I checked my P-mail, nothing; I checked the No to Nutro Group, there were some comments about HL & censorship and a proposal to change the name. Curious, I searched around the forums and friends diaries to see what had happened. I found nothing that shed any light on it. So I figured the comments were in regards to the GROUP.

So, I wrote a note to the admins of the GROUP regarding my feelings on the proposed name change. In that note, I SPECULATED on the reasons that Catster might be censoring things... Keep in mind, I still didn't know for sure what had actually happened. By this time, it was very late for me, and I was too tired to pursue the matter any further.

I logged in the next couple days, picked up a P-mail from one of the other GROUP admins, but had RL issues that needed attention; so again, I did not investigate any further.

Then my car broke down, and both of my computers died. Needless to say, I was pre-occupied.

When the dust had settled a bit, I had the BRILLIANT idea of checking my Catster specific e-mail.

THAT is when I FINALLY saw Lori's notice (Sept 7) that they were "cleaning up" my personal pages because they were implementing a new policy change. There were also a couple of strongly worded follow up admonishments (Sept 23) for my actions of re-setting the pages.

After canceling my CatsterPlus subscription, I replied to both Lori & Ted that I had acted BEFORE I actually SAW the policy change. They came back saying they didn't believe me because of the (private) note I had written to the GROUP admins. They then said flat out that I was unwelcome and removed my account.

I've replied that their assumptions regarding that note are incorrect, but I doubt it will make any difference to them. They seem to have their minds made up.

I was a member for 2 years. I initially joined Catster because one of my cats was going through serious liver issues, and I found a very supportive and knowledgeable community. I did my best to return that support and knowledge and I have missed that interaction.

I would like to say a heartfelt "Thank You" to Dale, Niel and the Archangel crew for putting this site together. I look forward to re-connecting with friends and acquaintances, as well as hopefully making some new friends.

Ugly Kitties
Posted April 9, 2011 by Allie
This week both Phoebe's husband, Gimme and Fidey's families went out and got 2nd ugly kitties (puppies). Our poor hubbies. They have the big kind of doggies that drool, and don't listen to them very well. They can move in here if they want.

We're stealing the car keys and money so Mama doesn't get any ideas! She laughed and said "only small dogs" and "we have enough", but we don't trust her. She also spoke admiringly of the big golden retriever that retrieves our cat food for her.

You just never know when a human is going to get suckered in by a puppy.

Creeping Around
Posted April 9, 2011 by Kat Brogan
We are on this BIG SHIP!!!! and creeping around. Trying to be quiet ,looking into all the things to do. Reading all the messages and trying to figure out how to get a picture up when I can not get at any of the discs I have packed. So many pretty pictures of HUMANS and MEOWIES!!!!!! I hope I can figure out some of the games to play too. The only one I can do so far is a Quilt Game.
What am I suppose to do. I am owner to 3 Catster/Dogster Groups and Admin to about 10 Groups but our Family has no desire to continue at Catster. Thangs have changed so much. We use to connect with people by PMail or talking to them but no more. Catster N Dogster has gone down hill.
Have to go now as we have to see some more of this Beautiful BIG SHIP!!!!!

TRAE VOLI

Well wasn't I surprised to open The Cat's Meow Blog yesterday and not see Skeezix or see Karen Nichols name anywhere. eek It angered me enough to cancel my subscription. Like so many others, I went there to see that cutie patootie Skeeze and loved the look of that blog. Well it's gone and so is he, and I don't like it. Now it is just another corporate looking change for that other cat site, unappealing to this consumer. It's not that I don't like change, but some things you just shouldn't mess with, this was one of them.

What do you think?

Red Dot Bug!
Posted April 6, 2011 by Molly
I've heard stories from the older cats that there's a red dot bug that they've been trying to catch for YEARS! I didn't see it until today. OMCeek

Allie says it's a trick, but I chased it and chased it. Harry helped me. We didn't catch it, but we scared it off for now.

I think it came out because spring is here. It's warm and sunny, and Mama said I don't have to move to a new house like we did last spring! I don't want to ever do that again!
