I never asked for quintupcats...

I received a comment to my post titled the Crouton Incident by someone calling themselves "GosselinWithoutPity". Here is their comment:

Looking for freebies? Just like evil Kate Gosselin. Hypocrite.
Although I do read and comment on, this comment is not connected to the Gosselins Without Pity blog. I have spoken with the moderators of the blog and they have confirmed this.

I am not looking for freebies, nor am I like Kate Gosselin. I did not ask for any of this, but these kittens needed a home and I have given them one.

If you ask me, the hypocrite in this situation is whoever posted that redundant comment.

I have never blogged under false pretenses. I am a high school student, doing this solely for my stray, adopted cats. I have saved a mother cat and her four kittens, taking care of them for months now. In my area, we have had -30 degree windchill and they certainly would have died. Before adopting them into my home, I tried to find them homes while caring for them outside in warmer weather. They were skin and bones. I know I saved their lives. They have been dewormed, defleaed, bathed, given their shots, and I'm in the process of getting them all fixed.

Grow up. I'm not doing this for a free Em Tanner t-shirt, although it would make a great blanket for Buster!


  1. Ignore that poster - what a b****. Sorry, I should not use that word on a high school student's blog. But, well, they are. Keep up the good work! Our four legged friends need us!

  2. OMG! Jen, you took the words right out of my mouth!

    Lily, you are hardly a hypocrite! You are a brilliant young woman trying to make a difference in the world! Keep up the good work and ignore the haters.

  3. Good grief! How juvenile!

  4. There are some crazy people around the blog world sorry one of them hit your blog. Good for you to take in that many fur babies!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I have to laugh at that list too because there are some major titles missing IMO -- I've seen a play adaptation of Atonement and if the book is anything like that I completely agree with you! My TBR list is so long I'll be lucky to get through it LOL

  5. Take the Em Tanner t-shirt, Lily! Take it and run!

  7. It's terrible that someone would say something like that to you. My mom got very angry when she read that. You should be praised for helping out poor little kitties. Mom said that if you get any more of those crazies to send them her way because she has a few words for them...

    Purrs Mickey,Georgia & Tillie

    PeeEss: Mom says ya gotta like someone that likes the "Cat Who" books!!!!

  11. Hi
    I took in a momma cat with 5 babies and I know what you are going through. I was lucky to eventually find a rescue to adopt them all out when they were older. Dismiss the negative comments..some people are just unhappy in their lives so they try to make other people unhappy also. Keep up the good work.

  12. Please ignore the ignorant, or pity them. They will have a lonely life. You have already shown you will be a good, compassionate person by helping the kitties. The world needs more people like you.
    We found your blog on the Cat Blogosphere - they are your kind of people.

  13. Hi! We saw your blog mentioned on the Cat Blogosphere and we wanted to come by and say hello!

    Wally, Ernie & Zoey

  14. I will go and scratch the person who posted that for you! How rude. Some humans have no manners. Bunch of uncivilized animals. Not like cats at all. Welcome to the Cat Blogosphere and thank you for taking in five kittens and saving their lives.

  15. We just wanted to come by and meet you guys!! We are The Creek Cats and there are 7 of us! We all just love your compassion to take on these 5 strays and give them a loving home.

  17. There's always a jerk in every crowd. Glad you didn't let this one get the better of you and chase you away.

    You are doing a good thing for those kitties. There is too much abuse going on but thankfully there are also many like you. Keep up the good work.

  18. Hi and welcome to our cat blogging community. Stop over and see us some time.

    Don't try to concern your self with every kook out'll go crazy! Obviously you love your cats and are doing the best you can. That's what matters.

  19. We have lots and lots of cats so don't let those people bother you. They have no life or compassion!
    I have tagged you for an award so come by and pick it up.
