Hi furs! Not much has been happening here, but I felt I've been neglecting my diary. I finally figured out, thanks to Reanan, how to post pictures in the group threads on Catster, and for those of you who don't know how to do it, my meowmy's done up a video about it which you can find on my page.
Here's something interesting Meowmy found on the internet today about a "Dr. Zoe D. Katze Ph.D., C.Ht., DAPA". She found it on Comedy.co.uk and it's about the panel show QI, hosted by Stephen Fry.
You should not consult Dr. Zoe D. Katze Ph.D., C.Ht., DAPA because she is a cat with bogus qualifications including hypnotherapy. Academic Steve Eichel wanted to prove just how easy it was to get qualifications over the internet. Once you get one then you can use the others to parlay until you get a whole list of them. Zoe has a doctorate in counselling psychology from a mail-order university, she has a C.Ht. meaning she is a certified hypnotherapist, she is in the National Guild of Hypnotists, and is a Diplomat of the American Psychotherapy Association. Zoe also has qualifications that allow her to be an energy therapist, a past-life regression therapist and an alien abduction therapist. There are "diploma mills" and "degree mills" which give either fake diplomas from a real university or a real diploma from a fake university. Stephen then gives the panel a fake diploma each in "Advanced Banter". The whole business of fake degrees is called "pseudo-credentialing".
How's that? Maybe I should become an "Alien Abduction Therapist". MOL!
Anyway, when I next have something interesting to report, I'll let you know! Thanks for reading!

You can find anything and create anything on the net, one must be careful to avoid an alien abduction.

Purrz 'n bonkz,
Simba, that is soo true! Hen, if I am ever abducted by aliens, I'll let mew know! Though I have never actually heard of any alien abductions, so I don't know why any alien abduction therapists are required. Milo, I never realised that with the name of the furiend school. That's nifty! I don't know who has the more ingenuity - what's-his-name for thinking it up, or you for figuring it out! MOL! See you's around!
