Justa comment cause Buddy told me about some postings he has seen.

We have no idea why there would be an exodus from a site that does provide an interesting and fun place for, and this is the rub, Cats!

And yes we include the odd Mom or Pop or Auntie or Uncle who are People in this. Their Puters after all!

If there may be one or the other advertisers on this site that you may not like, come-on already, vote with that old American Tool: Buying power! Any Cat can look at their dish and tell Mom or Pop those famous words that shall go down in history, uttered by that cat whose name fades, but, whose words still resound in cat-dom: "DO NOT WANT!"

I mean if you do not like it do not buy it!

We quit dry foods. Not easy! Took a lot of cat-will-power. But we did. *Buddy glowers* We still have plenty of treats
*Buddy rolls his eyes*
Buddy Bud: "I do feel better Tim"

See. And we did not have to "bash" any company to do it!

You can also just spread the word, in your Own Private eMail, hosted by the carrier you choose, at home, in privacy, to all the people you know. "Please do not buy Blah Blah! I feel this about that, and, also, let me say another thing that needs to be said but was not; and... and... and..."

There!

Done!

You could also set up your own web site. Costs about ten bucks a month. Too expensive? It is a tough money time for many! Hey, get some like minded to chip in a buck! Ten people and there you go!

Then, maybe... The Loudest will get to be boss!

Oops! What did I say! Sorry!

Aw... Shucks! No I'm not! MOL

Yeah Boss! The boss of you! The boss of me! The boss of this! The boss of that! Boss of who this independent business should take advertising dollars from.

They Demand: If they DO-NOT-DO-WHAT-I-WANT I GO-HOME WITH BALL OF YARN!

Sorry... This cat says: DO NOT WANT!

Wrong way to do it!

From the experience I have had here I know the powers that be listen. A message, POLITE of course, will be noted. Enough messages and there will be a difference.

An even better way is to go on the nutrition forums and post stuff about WHAT YOU DO and KNOW!

Not what others SHOULD NOT DO!

We have a bit of time now and again and we will go to Answers and give our knowledge to newbie cat owners.

We suggest wet! We say why! We do not mention Brands! Never a peep from the moderators. We had issues with wet! Buddy swore he would die if he did not get a certain brand! He got over it! In Time!

Buddy: "No I did-not"
Quiet Buddy!

Then there was a litter, a non clumping earth friendly litter. One of the kittens ate a chunk. He stopped eating! Luckily he up-chucked it! If it went a bit further he may not be with us! We now only use plain old clay or the newsprint kind. We were STEAMING to say the least. We tell plenty-many kitties about this but NOT ON CATSTER by BRAND!

Also: We like hand play! We like crate training! We like claws! We tried raw and will again! We don't get cat shows, but, are trying to learn! We don't like hoarders! We like spay/neuter. We donate! We give time! We transport to adoption shows at national pet supply companies!

There are groups and lists for all the things these people want to do with Catster! Lists that let you rant about all this stuff. Lists for people who like... Dogs... Even for *Tim Shudders* Politics!

Let us all move forward.
If you want to leave; so be it!
Me, Buddy-Bud, *Toby runs up* "Me Too!" will stay. We like it. We need a break from Pops *Pops flicks Tim's ear*
We have so many friends it is hard to check on them already.
We do our best.
We will make plenty more friends!
We may Like Catster, but, we love our friends more!
Yeppers!

PS: Sorry Buddy! Stole yer thunder!
Buddy:"KThnksBye"

PPS: FaceBook?? What-cha think Pops?
Pops: "Yew Gotta be kidding? Biggest collection of banality on the planet! The self serving in search of sycophants. My eyes bleed when I go there! The "HotNSexy" adverts make you want to purge. Thats why I love, and, talk to my Cats!"

Tim: Awww shucks!*looks embarrassed*

Timmy TomCat Buddy-Bud TomCat Toby TomCat The Kits The Angels: Inky, Pee, Stinker, Amber... *Coco flys in* Me Too!
And of course Pops

Hear, hear, hear! Way to write Timmy! We agree 100%! You're a pawsome spokescat for your family!

I'm so happy you're not going anywhere either. :)

Oh cats, do I ever know about cat-will-power! (boo!) My sister and I once ate dry food along with wet food. Dry food made me sick to my tummy almost every day (no matter which brand I ate), so both of us had to give it up. MOL! It took lots of cat-will-power to do it but I don't get sick to my tummy anymore. :)

Luvs you Timmy & Toby & furmaily!

Love,
Kaci

OMC, very scary about that cat litter!

Even Sobe has learned "DO NOT WANT!". Chicken & gravy cat food? "DO NOT WANT! DO WANT MIXED GRILL!".

I have severe food allergies so all I get to eat is chicken and turkey, but that's okay. We're not leaving either.

Momma and I are nodding our heads in agreement! Well said Timmy Tomcat and Pops!
Purrs,
Bridget and family!

Momma and I don't really care about the advertisers. We don't have to buy their products. Momma finds out what works for me by trial and error. Not by looking at ads. THey are simply there so Catster can charge what is a very low yearly fee for me to have my own Bridget page online!
Momma says this should be a fun place and not a place to bring all the gripes and trouble from other parts of our lives.
