MLB you are much kinder than I am. You know we have handled some serious
issues with cats and, a few dogs. Just because we take a lighter road to it
all, doesn't make us.......well, whatever he was implying we were. I really
hope his kitty doesn't end up with a serious weight problem and all the
associated problems with it. 0

Rec.pets.cats.community has used meowchat for as long as I remember.
I'm not all that fond of it either, but tend to lurk here anyway.
There are other rec.pets.cats groups too. For example if it's health
issues you want to look into, check out rec.pets.cats.health+behav.


You know what? I think the health+behavior group is the one I've used in
the past. I think I'll go there. Aside from its being more geared
toward the advice I'm seeking, I can't stomach this so-called meowchat.
Ridiculous. It's exactly the sort of foolishness that gives cat owners a
bad name. Thanks, Christine.

BTW, I used to date a Fin. She and her sisters were born there, but grew
up here in the states. They all had Finnish names that were a bit of a
challenge for my American tongue. Her parents' names were really tough,
but I have to admit, I did a pretty good job with them. In fact, the
first time I met her younger sister, the sister remarked on how well I
pronounced my girlfriend's name. (Most people didn't do too well.)

Thanks, again.

Don't go away mad -- some of the group are nice and have a playful spirit.

Well, you call it foolishness, we call it fun. Maybe you meant to go to
rpca. They do not like meowchat at all. Sorry to be below your standards.
We are interested in your kitty and the potential weight problem. Hope you
get it figured out.

It requires two things that a self-righteous
asshole like you doesn't have: imagination and a
sense of humor/playfullness.


Maybe I'm plonked so you won't see this...

What I always find interesting is how easily offended people in the internet
become when they're criticized.

My sense of humor is just fine...but grown-ups using this moewchat is the
equivalent of talking to each other in babytalk. It's childish, so grow the
hell up.

If you don't like it here, don't visit or ask our
advice.


As I already said, I'll be heading over to the health-behavior group.

you figure out the source of the problem. It may just be a growing

So while I do (really) appreciate your concern for my cat, I simply cannot
abide the meowchat. Honestly, it's not playful; it's hopelessly childish.
You must know that. Don't you? Would you accept people in a child-rearing
newgroup using babytalk? I doubt it.

BTW, I've spoken to the vet, and it's really looking like my kitten is just
a little piglet. I'm just going increase his daily amount of food to make
him satified, then try very gradually reducing it to the proper amount.

Yes but a [email protected]@hole by any other name is still an [email protected]@hole. Just because I
don't like something doesn't give me the right to rip it apart.

We kitties fout it wuz funnie dat himself kept readink thou him said him
hated meowchat. Ah well, it is da seazon for forgiffing not beliddleink so
as Whispering Willow Walker would say. Led him stew in hims own mess anna
stay oudda mine fishtank.
