Fraudulent Friday

UPDATE TO DA POST BELOW:
Good news - da photo / identity stealin' lady removed da cat photos  - she even changed the whole blog, now called "We Otta Here" (how fitting). 

Da Podin Possee Thwapping party is cancelled. Cat Bloggers Unite!

ORIGINAL POST:
We just read this on da Cat Blogosphere today and we was furry upset;

Max the Psychokitty wrote: 
"Just a heads up…there’s a 'cat blog' out there using my image and passing it off as their own, so you guys might want to pop over there to see if you’re being ripped off, too. It’s called "The 6 Cats of INVERNESS". The picture they’re using is one I submitted to Kitten War, and they Photoshopped my collar off, but other than that it’s the same — a few pages into the blog they use the whole picture and I’m "Mindy." Very rude. If they’re using me, they’re probably using other kitty pictures as well, so go look, just in case. I’m a very annoyed Psychokitty right now. They’re even making fun of Skeezix, which makes me even madder."

Mommakitty hadded steam comin' out of her ears all night long when she read this. Kiera was farting all night too - real stinky ones (may or may not be related).

Anyhoo, we don't finks they should be able to git away wif this! Let's form a poodin possee and go thwap these beans!

NOTE: This is a good reason why you should all put watermarks and/or copyrights on yer photos that you post on photo hosting sites like Flickr. Daddykitty does this, but then we fergit to do it on our bloggie - whut a hassle! 

Anyhoo - our litter box will probably be steamin' all day over this!

On a more productive note, please check out da petition below - make a difference today!

That's so rude! :(

Oh Oh: we think the Purr-Police may come arrest the Zoolatry Human cause she steals (sorry, borrows) pictures of other kitties ALL THE TIME. Is dat a crime? We call her our "klepto kitty"... but she always returns them to their owners. Please don't jail her.

We can't believe that someone would do that! It makes us mad. We used to put watermarks on our photos, and we guess we should start doing so again!

Kimo...the world can call you "Mindy" or other even less flattering things, but you will remain beautiful, spunky, omni-intelligent KIMO.

We were very upset that she was using it. I hope that Max's people write to her and if they get no satisfaction write to her internet provider!

The e-mail address I found on the site was linharesb@tampabay.rr.com - please feel free in joining the rest of us in taking a group dump in their e-mail box.

PEE Ess: There is a major difference between borrowing pictures for the use in artwork (like Zoolatry's or my Bean's collages) and posting a picture on another site and saying it is your kitty.

Mom was furry mad about dis, dey stoled Max's piksher and den she saw dat dey had Speedy's gerlfrends piksher on der and dey was MAKING FUN OF SKEEZIX! Dey also haf a ebay store so we told daddy to contact dem thru ebay and tell dem dat dey is breaking a law by stealing pikshers dat is not der's and using dem in-a-prope-riatly.

Max said...

Ya know, I wasn't too mad at first, not until I dug a few pages in and realized they named me Mindy. I was more upset about making fun of Skeezix. But the more I think about it the madder I get. I wouldn't have even minded if they'd used and said "Look at Max, he's a crackhead!" Because truly, I might be...

Tybalt said...

I keep telling mommy to put that stuff on my pictures, but she's lazy. I guess this will show her how important it is.

That's FURRY unkool. That's furry bad of them to steal Max's photo to try and pass him off as one of their kitties -- it's dishonest. And it's awful of 'em to make fun of Skeezix because Skeezy is handsum and nice and sweet and helpful and a furriend to efurrykitty.

Sign us up fur the poodin possee!

Kittyhugs and purrs from MaoMao!
