Deleting Catster

My friends, some situations tick me off but good.  Current case in point: Catster.com again publishes a photo of that Texas veterinarian who shot and killed a neighbor's cat while out hunting, then bragged about it online.  The woman was fired from her job, and charges were brought against her.

Really?  Isn't Catster a CAT LOVER'S WEBSITE?  What do they think they are doing?  I am so disgusted with them, since I and many, many others objected to the photo on the first article, that they would post it again in a second article, when 'reporting' that the judicial system had wiped their hands of the case by dismissing it.

So you know, I've deleted Catster.com from my favorites, and unfriended them on Facebook.  I just don't get enough benefit from their chatty, uninformative articles to keep supporting them.

Is it the shock value that is so important to the media?  At this point, I'm just mad and here is my stand against uncalled for and cruel journalism.  How do you think the grieving family of Tiger feel, seeing that photo over and over again online?

Nope, Catster, you've lost me for good, even though you've since changed your report and have carefully cropped that awful photo.  I grieve for a cat killed so savagely, for a family who've lost their loving family member, and for countless other animal cruelty crimes that will go unpunished because our lawmakers have NOT caught up to public sentiment.

  8. I had a magazine subscription to Cat Fancy, which is now Catster. I don't like it as well. Not all mergers, sales, or such in the corporate world are for the better :(

  9. We are sorry Catster made that decision. With so much negativity in the world toward animals, once is way more than enough. Twice is just adding to the cruelty and going for the sensationalism, attention, and profit.
