The Facebook Team to me Aug 27

Hi,

The Facebook Team has received your inquiry. We should get back to you soon. In the meantime, we encourage you to review our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (http://www.facebook.com/terms.php) for more information.

Thanks for contacting Facebook,

The Facebook Team to me Sep 2

Hi,

According to our Terms of Use, Facebook profiles are intended for personal use by people over the age of 13 only. We do not allow users to maintain accounts on the behalf of entities that are ineligible to use the site according to these terms (such as pets, young children, etc.) If you see any profiles like these on the site, it is only because they have not yet been disabled for misuse. I apologize for any inconvenience, but you will no longer be able to use this profile. This decision is final.

If you have a personal profile on the site, I recommend that you consider either using the Photos application, or find a different application that might suit your needs, such as the "MyBabyBook"/ "DogBook" application. To find an application, click Applications on the left navigation bar and then select "Browse more applications" at the top-right of the following page. From the Application Directory, you can read about available applications and add the ones you like to your account.

Thanks for contacting Facebook,

Breezy Cat to Facebook Sep 3

I see. You realize, of course, that I used Facebook more than my human does? It doesn't make good business sense to delete my account. She helps me type, and she DOES click on advertisements, much to my irritation.

The problem with Catbook is that I can't comment directly on furiends walls or photos. The lady has to do it for me. It's rather degrading, especially when I want to post flirts to a female cat. It's also difficult to search Catbook for furends, it seems the lady has to friend their humans first. She really doesn't want to share her information with people she doesn't know just so I can talk to their pets.

MyCatSpace works a lot better than CatBook. There was an anipal community on Ning but it isn't working. However, none of those options works as well as Facebook. For one thing, neither of them offer English (Pirate) as a language option.

The second best option would be a fursbook site using the same content management system as Facebook. Since it isn't available I'm using Blogger and Twitter now. *They* don't discriminate on the basis of species. May Ceiling Cat have mercy on you.

  2. Oh, Baby Patches, tell your momma to create a CatBook page on Facebook if it happens! She can list you there. Dis mine:
    Mr. Breeze AKA kittehboi

    The worst part was that I lost track of all my Facebook furiends. I suggest that you make a list so that your momma can find them if it happens.

  5. Hi, I can't believe Facebook's response to you. What IS their problem? Hisssssssss to them. Makes me want to cancel my account. I don't use it much, which is probably why they haven't kicked me out yet! Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrs to you.
