Flashback Friday

We were going to do a longer "Flashback Friday" featuring some Former Formerly Ferals, but the mom decided to hijack part of this post to RANT!

So here is the nice part!  These are some of our kitties who came before.

 This is Kimba, not actually a Former Feral,
but he was unwanted until the Mom saw him.

 This handsome classic silver tabby was Hobbes, Kimba's brother.
What a cute face!

  The mom's first cat was a stray she named Leia.
A month later she had 4 kittens.
Here are 3 of them, from left to right they are Shadow, Figaro and Attila.

 The mom kept Attila.  He had blue eyes that flashed red and was not deaf.
(That box seems to be popular!)

 Here is the Girl with Minnie Pumpkin,
a true feral who was born under a porch.

 This is Toby, another feral who was born in a barn.
Check out those massive feet!

Now for the rant!  WHAT are those Google people thinking making it so difficult to leave comments with their 30 character verifications that no one can read??!!!  Whoever came up with that one should be taken outside and whipped!  If you have time, write to them and complain.  I did, but there is strength in numbers.

In the meantime, do all your friends a favor and turn off that feature by going to Settings, then Comments.  Under Comments go to "Show word verification for comments?" and click "No".  Don't forget to save your settings.  This will turn off the word verification.  Its so easy!  I've had my word verification turned off almost as long as this blog has been up and I don't get any spam.

Turn off that horrid word verification & have a great weekend (please and thank you)!  Purrs & head bumps!

Those are some lovely kitties.

And I know about the Google thing - UGH! So annoying! I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed it!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Awwww sweet kitties!!!!

Dragged outside and whipped is not good enough for whoever came up with the word thing! It's awful!

Sparkle said...

I loved checking out the formerly feral ferals... and YES! I hate the word verification too! Google really needs to rethink it.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Sweet kitties who came before!

As for Google's new verification, it's awful, truly awful. Our human's middle-aged eyes can't make out one of the "words" and has to keep reloading. No way does she have the time for that, so if we ever start commenting regularly again, those who have word verification still ON, won't be getting many, or any, comments from us, unfortunately. It's just too hard and far too time consuming.

Marg said...

We all love our boxes too. What pretty little kitties. Those word verifications are hard but I was getting 200 spam comments on my blog so I had to put it on mine. Take care and have a great Fri.

We loved your flashback pics and all those cute kitties!!
We never bothered with the word verification as we have been lucky and not had much spam in 4 years :)

Thanks for sharing all those pictures of those that came before. We love Toby's feets!

And we agree about the word verification! What's up with Google anyway?? They're getting rid of Google Friend Connect and now this stoopid stuff!!

Mariodacat said...

Those are lovely kitties, and your mom was so good to give them a chance. he he - our thoughts on word verification exactly, We've turned ours off now cuz we don't like it either.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We've never had the word verification on our blog and (fingers crossed) we've never had a problem.
I don't mind the word verification when you can read the letters but my vision is quite good and I can't make the letters out because they look all smudgy.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Thanks for sharing the formerly pics, they are all gorgeous! I totally agree with you on that word verification thingy, it is awful.

We agree with you about the illegible word verifications and turned off ours a few days ago.

What beautiful pics of everyone!

We love the kittens, especially. Hobbes looks a lot like our Mitty!

I think we have the word verification thing already turned off, but we'll double check. We've just begun to try new things on here. We know what you mean, tho. Pain in the patootie!

Oh, you're preaching to the choir my friend (regarding the word verification thing). I didn't even know I had mine on until the other day. It must a default setting or something like that. I'll tell you whose de fault it is! And I LOVE your ideas about how we should deal with whomever came up with the thing in the first place. But I digress... the important thing is, you kitties are sooooooo cute and adorable!

Those are all gorgeous kitties.
We agree about WV. We never use it and have comment moderation for posts more than 7 days old. All our spam comments get caught by Blogger so they don't get published and we delete them in Dashboard in one go.If we get the WV wrong first time we don't try again, so that means we don't leave comments at all the places we used to.

Daisy said...

We agree, you can hardly even SEE some of those letters!
