Look at the home page for catster - what's with the 2400 + new members for yesterday and 1000+ for today???? Is it a spam bot or are they real members?

I know we got a bunch of newbies when an article about Catster/Dogster appeared in The Wall Street Journal a few months back. Maybe another article somewhere? wave

There's a thread about that on OM&P (http://www.catster.com/forums/Other_Meows_and_Purrs/thread/497425/1.

The general consensus there is that since so many of the new cats have only one pic and hardly any biographical information but they all seem to be members of the Febreeze group, that the must have joined just to get the freebie.confused

Reading through that forum almost makes it sound as if they are giving away free samples only as long as they last. And that they might be using the info to get your email addresses. I joined hoping to get a free sample, but if I don't get it I am going to feel very misled. I guess what my mom taught me is true.. There is no such thing as "free" I should have known betterfrown
