I think I know parts of the story, but I was away for a while, too, before Christmas. You may know that Ben and Emily/Tofu, who ran the site for years, left last summer. Since then it's been headed up by, I think, their former head of finance. But it's recently been sold to an "undisclosed" buyer. Doing so is supposed to increase the the buyer's web stats by around 50%, so it seems like they'll probably keep it going, but who knows? Catsuberalles made a LOL that put me onto an article that explains it all in detail. Here's the LOL: http://cheezburger.com/8765131264, and here's the article link from the title of his LOL: http://www.geekwire.com/2016/internet-cat-picture-site-cheezburger-sold-to/ ++ And to think, I used to think the local drugstore constantly rearranging all their products was Big Money trying to mess with my head. Totally pales in comparison.
One of the things I love most about Thai playground is the way we can all look at the same photo and see totally different things. You're right I an totally cat-obsessed and it's good to stretch myself.
Wowee... that's almost twice as many LOLs as I've done! No wonder your front paws are sore!! I have a couple of those "deleted due to content" too. If you hover your cursor over the thumbnail you should still be able to see the title, even if you can't see the pic. One of mine said the photo was deleted, maybe that's why I could still see the title. Funny thing was, I knew darn well what the pic was and there was *nothing* wrong with it. It was a little Himalayan kitten with a raised paw. That's it. I had her telling the teacher that she *really* needed to use the litter box. So nothing at all to get it deleted. If the person who posted the pic wanted it removed, OK, but the reason ICHC gave made no sense. And this was back when things here still made sense. :\ ++ Hope your wrists get to feeling better. I've had success with cold packs. Maybe that would help you, too? Have a great weekend!
Good grief. You aren't hanging in there, you're hanging on. Nothing else we can do. I got this severe skin infection on both legs all the way from the knees to the ankles. It looked like it was eating my skin. Even my doctor said he was sorry I had suffered so badly. That was very kind. So I am slam full of antibiotics and skin cream waiting to see if my own skin is still under there anywhere. I am so sorry about Jim's parents and what he had to go through. It's hard to get any rest with all that on your mind. We've missed you, but I can see you have been pretty busy.
