Barking Jingle Bells

Hi, Mefites! I have a need to see your pets in their holiday finery - sweaters, headgear, what-have-you. Have a picture of your cat in the tree? Need to see that too.

Metatalktail Hour: Pet Week!

Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, xenization (who is in grad school and can't have a pet) wants to hear all about your critters, and asks: "I'd love to see photos, obviously, but talk to us about their personalities. What quirky things do they do? What do they really love/hate? Any memorable stories to share? Let me live vicariously through you all." [more inside]

It's not fundraising if you're not asking for donations

I don't quite understand why this FPP (about pet adoptions) was deleted. The reason given is that 'Heya, posts built around charity/fundraiser stuff are kind of not okay in general. If you want to make a post about adoption stuff in abstract independent of the sort of Get Out The Adopt angle, that'd be more okay.' Except that the charitable foundation mentioned in the post doesn't solicit donations, so there's no fundraising aspect involved, zero, zip, nada. As far as I know it's funded entirely by some rich person's bequest in memory of a beloved dog. They don't even have a donate button on the website, and the text of the FPP made it clear that they were in the giving-it-away business rather than the taking-it-in business. I'm not quite sure how to do a post about pet adoptions 'independent of the sort of get out the adopt angle.' Unless it's a post saying 'why you shouldn't adopt' or 'the dark side of pet adoptions' or something. This FPP was about a) the cool commercial video, which is a cut above most efforts of this type and b) the existence of resources for people who are interested in adopting a pet but might be worried about the cost.

How is this spaying and neutering question not chatfilter?

Just curious:
How come the "Why are so many purported "animal lovers" pro-spaying/neutering?" askmefi wasn't deleted as chatfilter?

This smells like chatfilter

This smells like chatfilter--the circumcision of Stalin's declawed cats kind of chatfilter.

biscotti is awesome with animals.

So as to avoid a slow Meta day, heaven forbid, I thought I'd call out biscotti on a very long pattern of knowledgeable AskMe contributions related to various four-legged beasts.

Do you have a cat?

There are often questions on ask metafilter about animals, but most of the time, the questions are about cats. It seems to me that--among pet owners--most metafilter users that have pets have cats. Is this so?

Gold star for biscotti

Inspired by her response to the home alone puppy: to crate or not crate question, I want to commend biscotti for her many fine answers to pet related questions in AskMetaFilter. Her contributions deserve a gold star--they are always detailed, to the point and well informed. They are the sort of answers that make AskMetaFilter shine.
