Gifts and… WordPress issues

Let’s start with WordPress and issues with comments and the reader. For a couple of months now, there have been some bugs (not the yummy ones) with both:

  1.  When some of my regular readers try to comment, their comments are sometimes, although not always, sent to the “spam” or to the “to-be-approved” folders. There doesn’t seem to have any consistency (VBP) regarding who or when some of my furriends get sent to these folders instead of their comments being instantly published,
  2. The WordPress reader seems not to have been working (and not just for me) for some time now. Result is while I started following some new WordPress blogs, I can’t ask to receive notifications or see the new posts.

If you’re in one of these categories, and have noticed some problems I apologize on behalf of, yes, WordPress. Hopefully they are going to make things work better in 2013.

Nevertheless, I don’t want to complain too much as they make available for free a wonderful tool that enabled me to find new furriends all around the world. So thank you and keep up the good work, WordPress!


I thought I would show you some pictures of what we got from our humans, for Christmas. I’ll also do another post later with pictures of our Secret Paws lovely package – thanks to Marg and her furry family!

So, from the humans, we got a Pet Fusion Cat Lounge. We love it!

We also got a selection of toys from Nips & Bones, you know the ones that smell really good!

I got a silvervine fishie. I love my fishie. AND SILVERVINE!

Kitshka and I also each got one of the new Neko flies! Here you can see me play with one of the (silly) humans:

Milou got a catnip heart and a honeysuckle octopus:

Kitshka got, well, a neko fly (but she hasn’t played with it yet, she played with mine – hmpf) and a lizard wool toy:

So yes, basically, while Milou and I were getting a little high checking our sense of smell was working, Kitshka nomed and conquered a lizard. I’m so proud of my little sis!

See you tomorrow for the last day of 2012! And remember on January 1st, it is one of my best furriends ever’s birthday: it’s Sammy‘s birthday and he’s hosting a pawty!

  1. WP, Blogger, they all have their hiccups…you should hear our Mommy curse out the innernets sometimes–she should’ve been a sailor!

    You guys got some great loot from the peeps for Christmas! Um…want any company? We could do some Quality Control and make sure the toys are safe.

  2. I have some very strict Spam filters, and sometimes my friends wind up in the Spam folder – even worse, sometimes it won’t even let them comment at all! A couple of friends have emailed me about this, and I’ve had my human immediately whitelist them. It is a pain, but considering that no spam made it to my published comments in the past year, it is worth it.

    I use Google Reader to follow all the blogs I read, including the WordPress ones. They have been pretty consistent.

  3. What great presents!
    Oh! Boy! Does me know about your issues! Mommy often makes the swearing sounds, If yous accidentally clicks spam in the email yous gets, it can mess up those peoples for a long long time. Their posts gets sent to WordPress spam and pending. If there is a word your email does not like, the same thing can happen. Big sigh

  4. You guys get some great stuff for Crismouse. We’ve had a Pet Fusion scratcher/lounger like that one for about 6 months now. All four of us love it. It started our HuMom on a scratcher/lounger mission. We also ended up with the ones from Kitty Kan and Kitty Blocks. They’re awesome too. HuMom’s trying to save the furniture. Ha, good luck to her. We’ve enjoyed reading about you this year. We look forward to seeing you in 2013. Happy New Year!

  5. WOW Texas….you, Milou and Kitshka sure got some great pressies for Christmas! I love that lounger thing – looks like something you can reallly sink your CLAWS into! Lots of people are having WordPress problems I think….at least I’m reading about it EVERYWHERE… long as we can all stay in touch, that’s the impawtant thing……I can’t wait to see you all at my pawty tomorrow. LUCKY 13 here I come! Happy New Year to you and your humans……..

    New Years Hugs, Sammy

  6. c’est génial ce Fusion Lounge Pet Cat ! et vos jouets sont très intéressants ! câlins, et bonne fin d’année, à l’année prochaine les amis, ronrons d’Opale et Sonye

  7. I will NOT let my kids see that Petfusion lounge, especially Mewsette who loves all cardboard. But perhaps this year I can clear out enough of my own (merchandise and materials) crap to fit something that belongs to kitties and not me.

    I sign up for e-mail delivery of all the blogs I read. It’s much easier for me to manage than hopping around to readers that didn’t work consistently, and I get them first thing in the morning so I can read them first thing.

    Bonne nouvelle année, en bonne santé et plein d’amour!
