Rich Cream: Treygreen13: Would taking a picture of him and putting it on a website be exploitation, under your definition? How about letting someone come see him at their house?

How would you feel if it were a picture of you?


Do I look like a cat to you boy? Am I jumpin' around all nimbly bimbly from tree to tree? Am I drinking milk from a saucer? DO YOU SEE ME EATING MICE?

moops: blacksharpiemarker: Reddit in my Fark? It's more likely then you think...

Just as long as you don't get any 4chan in it.


Oh that would be just something awful.

Treygreen13: What, would you imagine, Grumpy Cat would do with money?


Grumpy Cat would sleep on it while gently inhaling the odor of crushed dreams and misery that might be on the bills.

Treygreen13: Rich Cream: "A lot of people think we are exploiting the cat, but..."

So all the money you are getting is going to the cat?

No, it isn't. So don't say you aren't exploiting when you obviously are.

Anger management classes and genetic testing to see what the fark is wrong with it.

velvet_fog: This is the dumbest "controversy" I've heard all day. It's a farking cat. As long as he gets fed, he doesn't give a shiat.


That's why I keep my cat permanently locked in a pet carrier. But I always make certain to pour food in through the air holes in the top twice a day, so I'm sure he's perfectly happy.

How could GC's handlers tell if she liked meeting thousands of random, possibly smelly people all fondling her and going kittykittykittykittykitty?

For that matter, how could they tell if she liked anything?

Glitchwerks: doglover: People who use flash photography on animals

Maybe we should let the animals handle the flash photography then.  As soon as they figure out how to work a camera.

ZombiesYall: Is all the Random Capitalization in that article Supposed To Be Funny? Also, I don't know why anyone would line up to see Grumpy Cat in person.


I was wondering why the article didn't link to "26 Photos Of Pets Pretending To Apply For A Reverse Mortgage."  Then I did a Google search on "26 Photos Of Pets Pretending To Apply For A Reverse Mortgage" and apparently it doesn't exist.  So now I feel cheated.

And grumpy.

Buy $1000 worth of cat toys. And you can't take them back because they've got spit all over them.

If a cat is upset, it WILL let you know. And you WILL know it, oh yes.

You know, grumpy cat is lucky. If he were a chicken, we would normally just eat him. Doing little or no work, he's actually supporting his human, not the other way around. So good for his owner. Whoever complains is just secretly jealous.
