    Why is that guy on the website blackmailing other people with such stupid threats?? Hopefully, the number on that site is fake.

    That isn't a very nice way to treat a new member. Please give him/her a chance. Everyone has to start somewhere. Welcome copritis. ;)

    That is the first time that I've seen that sight. Over $14,000 not bad, tearing on the heart strings of others certainly isn't the best, all he is doing is trying to extort money by sympathy. Sure he has vet bill, care, and upkeep expenses. That should be more than paid. There is also the companionship that has no value with a pet. Unless he just has a cold heart. :(

    Ask eye about *******, that's a bit worse. ;)

    Most of the cat ones were decent fakes, made by twisted people.

    At first I assumed the site was a joke, but there really is a Paypal donate link there. :rolleyes:

    I'm continually amazed at the stupidity of some people. I can't believe this guy actually got people to donate $14,000. I guess P. T. Barnum was right.

    But come on, guys, let up a bit. It's always nice to see people de-lurk around here.

    Welcome, copritis.

    copritis - i don't know why anyone would suggest you be banned. People repost all the time and usually the link to the original thread is put in. I think some people just missed the humor. I thought the site was pretty funny and i hadn't seen it before. It does seem a little contrived/schemish and I wouldn't give him money, but I'd say it was worthy of my time.
