What's the point in Google Plus?

Does anyone use Google Plus? Does it do anything Facebook and Twitter can't?

Yay, cats :D. I got a new kitten, I called him Chairman Meow (the Mrs reckons "Sooty" is a more "appropriate" name), he's ridiculously cute...thought you might like to know, Jan.

That is all.

Yeah????

It allows you to share exactly what you want with exactly who you want.
Facebook groups everything into public domain with zero privacy.

You get to have Email + Voice Calling + messenger that actually work

All your Google+/Gmail contacts automatically show up in your phone book (with pictures), while being private and not shared with third party.

That's a bit vague... so it's cr*p, right? :p
Just kidding :D

It's pretty much cr*p, but it's cr*p with "+". Facebook is plain cr*p.

Google+ has some nice features that Facebook did not and still does not have.

I had a quick look at G+ - and all I can say is, yes, it does look better than FB... But my cats' litterbox achieves the same.

How often do you change it? ;)

I was lying... :p My cats are independent, outdoorsy types :D

Or did you mean FarceBook?

Oh :)
I'd like more cats - but I'm permanently cured because outside Dublin you cannot find a single good vet. My last 4 all died unnecessarily miserabvly because of arrogant/ignorant sh8theads with a degree.
But I'm helping rehome 'rescue' kittens :)

JanSt / MOD  Jun. 7, 2012 at 14:43

And where's the photo?

I think there is a story to be told. :)

I shall go and find a decent photo of the beast, I have many many pictures, as you can probably imagine. I have a great little vets surgery in the village where I live...it'd be quite a long way to come from Ireland, though haha :D.

This is the cat when we got him a few weeks ago:

But hey, only ever give your cat a breakaway collar! http://www.squidoo.com/breakaway-cat-collar

Else this happens:

They choke.
A friend's cat died trying to climb out a narrow window. Collar got caught. :(

I'm not sure what kind of collar he has, I shall ask my OH when she gets home as she bought him his collar. If it's not a breakaway one, I'll go and get him one at the weekend. Any tips of how much he's meant to be eating? We feed him what the cat food box says (the vet said that's fine), but the greedy b*stard is always begging for food (though only when we're in the kitchen near his food cupboard). Are cats just greedy or is he actually hungry? I can't exactly ask him haha :D.

JanSt / MOD  Jun. 7, 2012 at 16:44

Hahaha as long as it's catfood a bit extra cannot harm ;)
If he's alone, it could be a bit of boredom, too. Since his buddy died, my last cat's doubled his intake.

JanSt / MOD  Jun. 7, 2012 at 16:44

...glad we're not off-topic, at all :D :p

matt101101 / MOD  Jun. 7, 2012 at 17:02

His weight is on-track for how old he is, so he's not being under-fed. Boredom could well be the cause of his greed, we only have the one cat so he's alone from about half 8 until about half 3 each day as that's when my daughter's at school. I'm reluctant to overfeed him as I don't want him to get fat and lethargic, as it's not healthy for him.

One last thing, I always thought cats were meant to be nocturnal, Chairman Meow...well...isn't. He sleeps at night, every night and he's awake for most of the day, is that normal (or at least acceptable) cat behaviour?

matt101101 / MOD  Jun. 7, 2012 at 17:03

A for being off-topic, the question has kinda been answered :p.

Yeah, the nocturnal thing's a bit of a myth. They can sleep 20 hrs a day hahaha time is irrelevant.

no wonder you like him... he protects your booze... ;)

CTPAHHIK  Jun. 7, 2012 at 17:30

Wow, just like G+.

What's with cat paranoia, Matt? Your first one?
It's eats, sleeps, purrs, craps, plays, nose is wet - all is good - it's healthy.

Don't think you can overfeed unless he is castrated. Cats are not human - they actually stop when they are full.
It will ask for food all the time - does not mean he will eat it. It needs attention - asking for food gets your attention - regardless if he is hungry or not.
It will sleep when it's bored - day or night is not very relevant. Cats hunt at night as it's a predator, but as there probably nothing to hunt in your house it sleeps.

Treab  Jun. 7, 2012 at 17:34

Its because he knows it will be a cat-astrophy... if he isn't paranoid
