Dear mean woman who’s been bullying and publicly shaming our mom at local events since May 2014 (2014!!) because she runs a cat blog,

We are sorry you don’t have anything as enjoyable in your life as our little blog is to our mom. That is no reason to be nasty.

And just because our mom will no longer attend any of the local venues you do, doesn’t mean you have “won.” It means our mom has simply chosen to eliminate you from her world. You go, mom!

We’d say more but our mom said if we felt we absolutely must post something about this, to be nice about it.

Oodles of hisses,
Tessa, Zuzu, Pia, and Olivia
with Miss Newton, Quint, Ruby, Viola, and the dad all agreeing.

A note from mom: Thank you, readers, for having patience with us not visiting or commenting on your blogs often over the past eight months when this bullying thing was a bigger deal than it should have ever been. We are getting back on track, moving on and away from the mean person, and refuse to give the situation any more attention. And to seal that deal, here’s a cute, previously unpublished photo of Viola when she was but a wee kitten:

  1. I have no idea about this bullying issue, but kudos to you on removing an unnecessary irritant in your life. And to the miserable, petty wretch whose life is so empty that spuriously belittling others is enjoyable, perhaps concentrating on making your own life bearable would make it less necessary to jealously attack others.

  2. Glad you wrote that mean lady a letter. She needs to take a nice lesson. Blogs, and cat blogs are the very best and lots of fun for everyone or I guess almost everyone. You all have a great day and on with that cute blog of yours.

  3. Hoomins can be so very odd at times. Viola, you were so adorable! Such a tiny, tiny girl. And look how you’ve grown.

  4. We’re sorry that someone is being mean to you – she must be a terrible person to be such a nasty piece of work. We love to come and visit you especially when we get to coo over little Viola.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. We’re glad you are eliminating this toxic person from your life and moving on. OMG that Viola photo needed a squee warning!!!!

  6. Lamento muito que você passou por isso, é triste que uma pessoa adulta tenha tal comportamento. Blog de gato é legal e acompanhar o nascimento e desenvolvimento de Viola é a prova disso.

  7. We don’t understand how people can be so mean and to you of all people. We’re glad the kittehs admonished her accordingly. Thanks for the sweet picture of Viola as a squee one.

  8. The animal rescue world is so full of drama! I don’t know what was going on, but I can just imagine, and I really feel sorry that you’ve had to endure it. Viola looked like a tiny leopard cub in that photo, and she’s darling as a grown up kitty.

  9. I am so so VERY sorry that you and tour family, fur and human have had to deal with this, I for one as does Katie, admire you greatly. You can tae it to the bank!

  10. You’ve got fur people and humans around the world supporting your Mom ‘cuz she’s super awesome. That idiot human is obviously jealous!!! We will send hissies and scratches his way!!!

  12. I so wish these mean people would go find something else to do! Why must they harass such nice people and animals? I’m glad you’re able to move past it and move on! Love to all of you at Colehaus!! 🙂

  13. Glad to see you back!

  14. To borrow a song line: People are strange. Good idea just avoiding her and her ilk.

    Squee! Hard to believe Viola was once that small 🙂

  15. “haters are always gonna hate” best not to waste your energy on her….”the best revenge is a life well-lived.” catchatwithcarenandcody

  16. Good for you!!! We’re glad you put her in the bottom of the litter box!

  17. My human and I have met your human in person, and she is such a lovely, giving person that it galls us that anyone would be that mean to her! That awful human has no place in her life.

  18. mean people suck….good for you for taking steps to protect yourself. And dang….the Viola sure was a cutie 🙂

  19. We’re sorry your mom has been dealing with a bully but we’re glad she is going to be able to help you blog more now! Kitties bring smiles so we think it’s the purrfect remedy to bullies!

  20. Not going to give the bully any more attention – just want to say “Yay” to Tessa and the Colehaus family for supporting your Mom. She’s the best!!

  21. We think your Mom won!

  22. Oh dear me…we are so very very sorry…this is just horrible….small minds is all we can say and boy is her’s small. It all centers around jealousy.
    If ‘she’ only knew just how many Cat blogs there were out in cyber space she’d be amazed. Blogging is about fun and sharing and we truly appreciate that you have put this person on the back far back burner never to be mentioned again
    We are here for you heck if we all band together..with all our daggers and claws we would be a force to reckon with.
    Hugs madi and mom

  23. Naturally our Mommy had something to say about such a nasty person…and the word began with the letter EFF…somebody grab the soap!

    Seriously, life is too short for crappy people. Good for your Mom! go, Go, GO!!!!

    We are all so sorry for the ordeal you and your family have been through. The bullies do this to make themselves seem more important, when in reality they are jealous of what you have. All the blogger friendships and the other people that read what you write. I’m sure we all wish we had known so that we could have taken some of this from your shoulders. Glad you have decided to get rid of this hatred from your life. We all love what you do and have your back. Welcome back to the blog family.

    What is wrong with some people???

  26. We send hisses to this woman too! Very cute photo of Viola.

  27. We’re sorry you’ve had such ignorance to deal with. Some people’s kids.

  28. Some people just don’t have anything better to do with their time than make trouble. You’re well rid of them as you move on into bigger and better things.

  29. We are glad this chapter is over and that evil bi-atch has lost her power over your Mom. Cats saved Belgium this weekend but I hope their karma bites that tormenter. Viola, you were so adorable.

  30. What a cute kitten picture!

    Sorry you had to deal wif a rude bully. Some people really need to get lives.

  31. Smooches to all of you. Glad the bully person is out of your lives!

  32. We don’t understand why people are mean like that. We’re glad you are done with that mean person! (((hugs)))

  33. How anyone could be nasty to someone as nice as your mom we don’t understand. Karma will get her. Purrs and pawhugs, looking forward to hearing more from all of you.

  34. I am sorry your mum was being bullied by that pathetic woman. Bullies thrive on upsetting others but it just shows what a worthless life she has if that is the way she has to get her enjoyment. Well done to your mum for putting this horrible time behind her where it belongs.

  35. You tell ’em Tessa! Mom Carole, we’re glad you have put this behind you and are looking forward to seeing more from you soon. We will send purrs of kindness to this bully in hopes that someday the kindness of kitties (and their people) will transform her tight little heart.

  36. You go, kitties. Glad your mom is moving on. Viola, you were so cute!

    I could spit on her if you want. It’s my name and all. I didn’t get it for purring.
