I'm taking this blog post

I'm taking this blog post way too seriously and acting pretentious because it's insane promotion of animal cruelty and as such, I wish to insult you and express my "holier than thou" attitude in going as far to say that you will feel all the pain you have caused through this incredibly ignorant post that is clearly not intended to be humorous and only a disrespect to animal lovers everywhere. How dare you.

Anyways, this is actually a pretty silly post (not to be taken so seriously). I enjoyed it, though I agree that 7 is a little...well, much. Haha :P

Am I missing something here?

Am I missing something here? How is 7 anything other than cats sitting in buckets? How, exactly, is it cruelty? Furthermore, my guess is that each of those cats got treats after the picture was taken. If you'd take note, the cats in 7 are the same set of (very well trained) cats as in 13, 14, and 20. And all of them were cute.

Oh, my goodness! Such

Oh, my goodness! Such negativity. Most of you must not have furkittens in your home or you would realize cats will get THEMSELVES into anything that looks interesting and might make a good place to be - whether it fits or not and do it all by themselves. These are cute, not cruel. Lighten up and enjoy the reality of this - it's called comic relief of furkids. I know in my heart that a real cat lover took these photos and would NEVER PUT A FURKITTEN IN JEOPARDY! If you need something REAL to sink your teeth into - go complain on a site belonging to genuine animal and child abusers; you can do some real good there. Or better yet, rescue a furkid of your own and spend your time loving it! If you want to track me down and slam me for this - feel free because I don't need to be anonymous .... http://www.pinterest.com/whatagreatday/ Now - back off!

I'm pretty sure the original article has been altered to removed the offending pictures in the last two years, as it's hard to find offense in cats sitting in open buckets. :)

There is something going on with the cat in #13 in the basket 3rd from the ground. It looks either very sick, or fake.

This whole article is really

This whole article is really not to be taken LITERALLY but when you have many kitties such as myself (20) it becomes a constant creative challenge on how to keep every one clean and happy. So this little blurb for multiple cats is more about mentally the thoughts that go through your head to juggle the load. using totes, laundry baskets, paper bags all the little nooks they love. Ran across another pinned site of using chicken crumbles and totes for kitty litter helped alot. Having many kitties is because others can't and won't either take care of them or won't neuter and spay and yes it is expensive... 7 22lb bags of cat food, wet food, water and cleaning every day and of course petting them and talking to them...
whew lots of work but sooooo cute!!!!!!

Anybody who didn't laugh

Anybody who didn't laugh like crazy about this article in which I am sure no kittens were ever hurt, obviously doesn't have the kind of cat family I have had for years. I only have 5 right now, but they can be really darn funny. There are some that used life [like stuffed animals, and others which were obviously photo-shopped. Come on, it was FUNNY. I just woke up for a HORRIBLE nightmare, and this made me laugh enough that I don't think I'll go back to the nightmare. I NEEDED this laugh, and just happened to run into it.

I honestly feel bad for those of you who don't have cats as crazy as I have always had, my entire 52 year life.
