We would like to say a special thank mews to our beautiful and sweet-hearted friends, Miss Kally Kat and Momma Liz for their very kind and complimentary comment on our last diary entry about the spammers who have ruined our Answers Page.
Nothing has been done so far, and the nonsensical "questions" keep coming like water over Niagara Falls. Mom misses having her morning coffee and answering questions. She is frustrated and angry. She wrote to the Head Cat but so far hasn't heard anything. She heard it was spammers and liked the suggestion about shutting down the page until they stop. And, it still worries her that somecat will need help and she won't be able to "get to" them.
On the bright side, if there is one, our little double-wide is pretty picked up, most of the laundry is done and Mom and I are working on her knitting machine. She doesn't sit on the computer answering questions, so there's more time to pots around the house! 8o/
We hope this is fixed pretty soon. We don't understand why anyone would want to mess with the page in the first place.
Hanging in there, Iz fans!
Mom and Izzie

Hi, Izzie. Yes, I've seen that disaster over on the Answers page. That spam probably comes from a million different servers and is likely giving HQ fits. Hopefully, if someone really needs an answer they'll go to the forums. I miss your kind, clever wisdom.
Thank you so much Izzie's Mom in honouring my comment!
I hope this will all be sorted out very soon.
Hi Monster, you are so right sweetheart we miss Izzie's Mom at the Answer Board!
Now, I can not figure out why a non member is allowed to reply to a question, post or thread without being a registered member Standard or Plus?
Whenever I visit other sites all about Cats I can not try to join in any threads or post!
It'll say you must register or log in as a new member.
An administrator or moderator will let you know if & when?
I feel like we are constantly being invaded by outside peeps that are so miserably unhappy & have too much free time on their hands!
Let's all hope for the best & I also, wrote to Catster Support for help, hope it will be taking care of!
ღLuvs & huggs,
Kally Kat ღ
Why, thank you, Monster! And I miss yours as well! It looks like this 'event' is going to continue indefinitely. I'm with Kally Kat and Momma Liz. I don't understand computers well enough to be able to figure out how this could go on for weeks and weeks. I do believe the page should be shut down. However, what's to stop "them" from coming back when it's reopened? We're just a little kitty cat lover's page here. Why would anyone want to do this? The Watch Cat said they are working on it, and I believe they are. It's just sad that all the energy the spammers are putting into this isn't used in a more constructive way, like spreading the word about spay/neuter for instance...
