to not understand animal FB accounts ?

Been wasting time this morning avoiding housework on Facebook and found a friend has created a FB account for all her pets.

Nothing new there. However she has posted all on their individual walls 'moaning' messages from the cat to the dog ie "You kept me up last night from all your howling." Or "You need to ask Susan* (then linking herself) to change your litter tray as it stinks" etc. It goes on for ages.

I know it's not harming anyone etc etc but does anyone else find it a bit odd ?

PS I'm starting to think I have spent too much time on FB this morning and yes I need a life 😳

Whats worse-people with animal facebook accounts or people who start threads on mn about people who have animal facebook accounts.....?

Well it's not something I'd do, I admit a bit of a fondness to the Twitter accounts of Kitten Academy graduates... Blush

I don't care how nuts that makes me she's cute and deserves to be shown off Grin

I follow an Australian greyhound on Facebook. She has a lot of followers and her owner is very clever and amusing in the way she posts on her behalf. We are a (large) group of people from all over the world who tune in regularly to hear about the latest exploits of our Alice. We post pictures of our dogs (and cats) and share good and bad news. What's the harm?

Not everything on facebook is all serious either Confused

My dog has a Facebook page. She's a rescue and her friends are the various people who have been involved in her (extensive) rehabilitation. I share photos of her enjoying life after what she went through.

I do agree the discussion between pets is a little odd, but as a pp said, Where's the harm?

Gosh, I really want to do one for my cats now. I really do need to get out more Grin

Escapism. Raise animal protection issues with a wider audience.
If it's not for you it's not for you.

AlphaBites · 19/07/2017 13:22

I can assure you this isn't to raise any animal awareness causes, it's all just 'conversations' in the same family. Confused

I CBA with all that.

Sounds like they have far too much time on their hands.

It's just having a sense of humour, one that's different to yours. Humour is good for your mental health. If it's not impacting you then I don't see the problem.

You didn't write lighthearted.

Run! Run for the hills!

Well I wouldn't do it but it's just a bit of fun innit? My friends dog has FB account and you'll never come across a more foul mouthed, uncouth spaniel in your life! Makes me laugh anyway.
