    Beautiful Illustrations

    Not only are the words descriptive and helpful, the illustrations demonstrate far more than words can in this instance.

    My Complain

    My complain is about "nook world". Everytime I am looking for a book, I go to the reviews and see people chatting and having "sex". I don't mind people talking, chatting or making friends but do it somewhere else. This is why we have new technology. Go talk on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and make friends.


    Thank You!

    Rockstar to all

    You know what? I try to make cats fell wanted, I am against forcemating, I hate drama! None of this is my fault. I try to interact with everyone using my four rps in the clan, it's difficult. There are lots of kit do to forcemating, it is not my fault. I have expressed my dislikes of forcemating loud and clear. It is not my fault that some cats are the kind that always want attention. I am not that kind of cat. I try my best to hold everything together and minimize drama and forcemating. It's hard. Give me a break and pick on someone elso for a change. All this hating in rp is making me a very cranky person in rl so plz just stop. I try, as hard as i can, and it seems that very few appreciate it. -&#8476&#9390

    1. GRR!!!! I HATE the fact that in every clan there are cats that are ignored! I'm always one of them, even when I'm in the action! People need to start paying attention to the "losers".
    2. Forcemating needs to stop. Now. I'm a Sunclan kit and now there are way too many kits because of that dumb cat who came and forcemated a bajillion cats and WE COULD HAVE IGNORED HIM!!!!! Now I don't know how long it will take for me to be an apprentice anymore! Or if I'll even be one!
    3. I HATE MY LIFE.
    4. No one listens to anyone except the cats they think are cool. I literally killed myself at a clan that was ignoring me. The response?
    *licked a paw.*
    So-and-so snuggles up to so-and-so.
    *Yawns.*
    I mean, seriously, people!
