  1. Never did quite understand how kitties & puppeh say “HI” ..
    If we tried it, I think we would get arrested .. hehe

  2. Blue Footed Booby says:

    I suspect that if early hominids had possessed anal scent glands evolution and social development would have taken a different course. We might have ended up with a world of people wearing buttless pants. Whether this is paradise lost or a bullet dodges is, I suppose, a matter of preference.

  3. Too true, Blue Footed Booby. Though I suspect it’s also a case of having the sensitivity to discern the different scents as much as the glands themselves. The internet would never be the same, though. . . .

  4. The strange things that animals do. :lol: I wonder what would happen if the kitty getting his/her bum sniffed happened to break wind just at that moment :lol: Would the other kitty shake his/her head or pass out? :lol: (I am so mean :lol: )

    This week on Downton Tabby: Carson introduces one of the footmen to the finer arts of butt-lering.

  6. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    ROTFLMAO! My kitties do that, too.

  7. jlamusings says:

    Oakley, you’re killin’ me! I just snort/laughed at work. >_<

  8. ScoutsMom says:

    It drives me crazy when my cats do this. They have lived together for 2 1/2 years so they certainly already know each other, yet Ponyboy continues to put his butt in Scout’s face and she always has to take a sniff. So I am often yelling, “Pony, get your butt out of Scout’s face!” followed by “Scout, get your face out of Pony’s butt!”

  9. Slightly off topic, but is it me or the number of comments has significantly decreased since they changed the format?

  10. BAHAHAHA

  11. @plmd, yes the comments have significantly decreased since the changed layout. Maybe people are busy or maybe they find the new layout too annoying. (no archives, no ability to reply to a specific person…)

    My theory about the new design is that this is the internet version of a TV network trying to kill a show because they don’t like it, even if many viewers do like the show. On TV, they take a popular show and keep moving it around until no-one can figure out when it is on, and then claim viewership is down so they can cancel the show.

    On the internet, if one gets tired of hosting a blog, you keep changing the format until visits go down and then you can quietly delete your blog. I certainly stopped reading “Cheezburger” a few years ago because of their annoying redesigns.

    As a reader, I’m disappointed with the changes. However, Meg’s life has changed a lot in the last few years so I can understand that she would like to move on. She already leaves most of the posting to her team.

    This is definitely not the place for a discussion on whether bloggers should keep blogging because their readers want them to even if the blogger wants to do something different. But then, I don’t know where to find a place for a discussion like that. In the olden days, there would have been Usenet groups one could use to discuss general topics, but I don’t even know how to find the equivalent of Usenet groups anymore.

  12. so is my previous comment in moderation or did it get eaten because I had to sign in? I guess I’ll check later and see if it shows up.

  13. (this may end up being a duplicate post. sorry!)

    There have been several discussions about the site change, behind the scenes and now, among our beloved fans. I appreciate your desire to make sense of it all. We are all mad about cuteoverload.com and no one is trying to wriggle out our commitments. Meg hasn’t posted in awhile, but we have always worked for Meg and she’s always there, guiding and providing. The last thing we want to do is lose her, lose the site and most of all, lose our loyal readers. Change is hard, but your suspicions of an untimely demise are unfounded.

    Besides, if that strategy actually worked, why is that, no matter what the networks, critics or audiences say, Family Guy lives on?

  15. @Sharpy, thanks for your reply. I’m relieved to hear that my assumptions are inaccurate. As for Family Guy surviving, somebody must really like the show! Now if only we could get that person to like some of the shows that I like!
