Happy Caturday to all - this is my first time posting. :-)

Back in 2008, I adopted a cat named Frankie. Frankie came from a foster organization that, sadly, has so much business, it is all they can do to keep the kitties healthy, fed, and housed, so there isn't much time for socialization. So when I adopted her, they warned me that you could not pick her up. I'd had cats before and I knew some of them weren't thrilled about being picked up, so I figured it was just that and I could deal with it.

Well, it wasn't.

You really can't pick Frankie up. It is full blown, "OMG I'M GONNA DIE" scratching, hissing, biting, all the tools in the scared kitty arsenal. Plus, not only was she so scared of being picked up, she didn't allow people to touch her unless she initiated the contact AND you could not touch her in two places at once. If a situation gave her an idea that she was about to be picked up, she beat a hasty exit.

I am partial to grey and white cats, and I wasn't about to return her to the foster. I just decided that I could respect that about her and I'd only pick her up when it was 1000% necessary (vet appointments, etc.) and I wouldn't push her on contact. Everybody deserves to have their boundaries respected, and I don't think animals are any different than the rest of us in that.

So, fast forward to 2012. We (two dogs, Frankie, and I) are moving several states away to help take care of my mom who was diagnosed with lung cancer. I was sweating how I was going to get her into the carrier, how she'd handle 12 hours in the carrier in the car, plus an overnight hotel stay. Was the progress I made with Frankie over the the past four years (now I could,if I did it right, touch her in two places at once, she comes when called, and reports for admiration/cuddles at night when the light is off) going to be wiped out by this trip? I was afraid it would be.

But she surprised me. She went in the carrier by herself (I think she decided going in on her own was better than being put in), and other than some crying when we were going slower than highway speeds (Speed Kitty), she was a rock star. I left her in the bathroom in the hotel and she actually came out for attention when I'd go in to see her. When we got to my mom's, she hid for a few hours but that night, reported for pets like nothing had happened.

Conversely, the dogs spent most of the trip barfing (one in the hotel bed, the other multiple times driving up the New Jersey Turnpike after breaking into his arthritis chews and forcing me to call Poison Control. Why yes, he is a Beagle!).

It has been hard moving up here and dealing with mom's illness, and Frankie provides a reassurance that is...different than the dogs give. Doggie comfort is "Everything's OK, I think, but you should pet me so I'm sure." Kitty comfort is "Duh, I *told* you everything was fine. Now rub the side of my face. No, over here."

Since she is so nervous of strangers, Frank doesn't get the admiration that the dogs get from other people, so I wanted to share how proud I was of her for handling the trip so well. Thanks, Frankie Pants, for being my bestest kitty friend.

Plus, the picture just cracks me up. I took it for a friend so she could see how Frankie was adjusting and she pointed out the writing on the box. It seems the exact opposite of the look on her face.

Many years ago, while I was still in High School, my mother decided to get adventurous and make nachos for New Year's Eve. As she was assembling the ingredients to begin the nachos, she asked me to get the jalapeno bean dip out of the bag. Dutifully, I looked at, then read aloud the contents of the only two cans left in the bag. One was ocean white fish, I don't remember the other, just that both were fancy feast. It took a few minutes but eventually we realized that the jalapeno bean dip can was the same size as the fancy feast can. And that the plate with the "gooshie cat food" had been cleaned by at least one of our two cats.

Mom had first hand, or is that first nose?, knowledge that Second Hand Rose, our prim and proper long-haired tortishell was certainly a culprit as she let out dainty little poofs periodically, all night long as she snuggled on Mom's lap. I think that was also the last time Mom bought bean dip to make nachos...

But let's be honest here. How good is your memory these days?

I'm still sharp as one of those little pointy things that you attach pictures and stuff on a wall or a bulletin board, like the ones you make out of corks from wine bottles and maybe put some pretty ribbon to add a touch of color kinda like putting on a necklace with a plain dress, you know like the basic little black dress when you get invited to a cocktail party where they serve those little sausages with those little pointy things that are like long tacks.

My friends, I would like some advice. Has anyone here ever used a Furminator? The reason I ask is that most of you know that Dragon (while technically a short hair) is extremely fluffy, with very thick fur. While I am used to it, it seems that as he gets older, he seems to be ingesting more than is good for him - I base that on the amount of fur he is excreting, which is obvious when I scoop his litter box.

I have spoken to my vet about this, and since the white boy is already on a daily dose of a stool softener/laxative, I was advised to avoid any type of normal hairball remedy (Petromalt, Laxatone, etc.) and instead just brush him every day. Which sounds simple enough, but Dragon does not like to be brushed. Over the years, I have tried regular cat brushes, those rubber ones, slicker bushes, combs, even human hair brushes, and he is not keen on any of them.

So although I have heard good things about the furminator, before I invest in one (those damn things are expensive, and cash is tight right now), I would appreciate any input. I don't want to clutter up the thread, so feel free to contact me at my login @ gmail.com. Thanks to all in advance, and I apologize for the wall of text.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled gaseous Caturday :o)

Cat cares not if you are Busy
Life in a Tizzy,
Making you dizzy.

Cat demands,
Cat commands.

Defeated you sit,
In your lap a kit.

Make you recall,
Even the mighty will fall,
When faced with the sprawl.

A paw taps,
Your will power saps.

A purrfect cap.

To a busy day.

I have been reporting this seller and others without success.

/sorry to bring this on a Caturday but this stuff really pisses me off

Unfortunately, after searching eBay's rules, I find nothing prohibiting this offensive listing. If you find a rule or category violation in which to report it, please post a link to it. I have 10 user IDs. Strength in numbers.

eBay is slow to act on many complaints, and chances are, their customer service representatives are from a culture who has no problem eating dogs or cats.

Under the listing, if you click "report item" under "category" you can click "Prohibited or restricted item" Under "Reason for Report" you can click "Animals, plants, and wildlife" Under "Detailed reason" click "Animal traps"

Strength in numbers. If we can get some numbers, Ebay will make a business decision and take these inhumane posters off the site.

Let's make this Caturday a one to remember.


Done. I hope one springs on this bastard while they're rotting in his garage.
