I thought this was place to exchange info on cats, not act like a bunch of
children. I've come here in the past, and don't remember this foolishness.

You are probably looking for one of the other rec.pets.cats... groups.

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.

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.

Maybe you need one of the health groups or rpca. We rather enjoy meowchat
here and I am sorry it is below your standards for fun. However, we are
interested in your kitty and hope you will post when you figure out the
source of the problem. It may just be a growing thing. Lots of luck.

Didn't mean to post twice on same subject. Power blipped and I thought the
message didn't go.

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

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

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.

-Dave

And, young man as I assume you are by your rudeness, exactly what does that
have to do with a problem you might be having with your cat?

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