Trying Hard Not To Be Bugged By This…

Filed under: Art and Photography,Linda,Our Pets — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

My photo of Linda with the kitty litter on her nose showed up on this website:

This is what they did to her:

Linda’s a LOL cat…

After having to have her put to sleep back in September, I’m still a little touchy about it. I left his comment on the site:

Actually, Linda died of kidney failure.

Funny thing is, the person who made this didn’t notice that Linda had a piece of kitty litter stuck to her nose.

There was so much more potential for funny and it was just lost on this one…

Since they didn’t ask permission to use my picture AND they made a joke about her being sick, I’m trying really hard not to be bugged by this.

I’m reluctant to see what kind of LOL they’ll give her with this photo…

Linda’s Last Visit To The Vet by Laura Moncur 09-27-07

I’ve received a lot of joy from LOLCats. I realize LOLSecretz is a different website than LOLCats, but they used the LOLCatBuilder to put it there. I never uploaded Linda’s picture to their website and it is freakin’ impossible to find it in their collection. Do I call our lawyer to have them remove it?

My daily dose of funny cats has kept me happy despite this hell of a year.

I’m trying really hard not to be bugged by this…



  1. If they used your photo without your permission it’s a copyright violation.

    You should do more than chastise them in their comments.

    Sorry about your Kitty.

  2. It’s more complicated than that. I read LOLCats EVERY day. I get a lot of joy from that website. I owe them big time.

    I know it’s important to defend your copyright, but at the same time, I feel like I’m okay with them using the picture.

    I think I’m so pissed off because it wasn’t as funny as it could have been…

  3. i came across your little blog here while searching pictures of cats… your linda looked so much like me and my fiance’s dexter. he was so so special much like how you speak of linda, we think he was autistic or just special in some way, besides the fact that he had six toes on his front two paws. just this week he passed away very suddenly and he was only about 8 months old, and it has been very very difficult to say goodbye. i just wanted to say sorry for your loss but reading your posts have really helped- so thank you for posting your thoughts and your pictures. thanks. clay.

  4. Clay,

    Thanks for the kind words. Now that it has been almost two years since Linda died, I’m feeling so much better. We adopted a kitten and named him Elvis. He and Maggie are so happy together. My heart is healed.

    Thanks again, Laura
