Spittles posted in the Say Meow to a new member from Australia, "May I ask why the heck Fidget is not spayed?" I thought that was harsh. I removed the words "the heck?" That is not the way to welcome new people. I guess I'll have to write to her. I believe Fidget is a pure bred Birman. If so, her owners are among the few members who might be justified in breeding their cat. Does anyone else consider spittles to be a bit abrasive?
