Cats on Face Book

Cats on Face Book

Yes, there are an abundance of photos, videos and cartoons about cats on Face Book. But did you know there are multitudes of cats that have their own Face Book page?

My cat Samson Baloney Harrington has his own Face Book page. I was bored one Sunday afternoon and decided to entertain myself by establishing a page for Samson so he could befriend Jack & Lilly and Sparkle Pig as well as a few personal friends and family members that would enjoy my eccentric sense of humor. 

Little did I know just how many felines have joined Face Book. Even more surprising to me – the number of friend requests that Samson has received. One I established Samson as a legitimate member of Face Book, we collaborated and sent out a few friend requests to our 2 cat friends,  an inanimate sparkler, and a small circle of “in the know” folks. Imagine my surprise when Samson received hundreds of friend requests from not just other cats, but humanoids!

Now, I don’t know about you, but I find it a bit suspect that a person that doesn’t know either me or my husband would seek out our black and white cow cat as a friend. We won’t allow Samson to befriend humans we don’t know. And we are careful about the other cats he can friend.

Frankly, I am a bit uncomfortable that Samson has 166 friends. The waiting list is lengthy.  He has declined numerous requests. How do cats or people even find my cat on Face Book? What possesses a person to friend a cat they don’t know? I will concede he is adorable, but really!

Apparently, we must exercise our cat guardian duties and protect him from potential predators.  It is time to purge the friend list.

What do you think?
