Picture Pirates

Our friend Marlene found Chilli on Icanhascheezburger - "Picture by: dunno source". Sure enough, little Chilli is basking in her (anonymous) fame.
Oh, if just everyone in the internet would have as much etiquette as Wendy with her great LOL-Spot, who asks first and knows the meaning of photo credits and blog links. Hooray for Wendy!

I agree. We hoard some of your cute pics for private enjoyment but we would never use them without asking you first.

Mariodacat said...

YAY for Wendy. I love your pictrues, but I'd never use without asking.

We went to the site and left a comment! She is a very cute little Chilli!!!

Catherine said...

A cute picture indeed! Too bad that site didn't ask to use it before publishing it. tsk tsk! Very bad blog manners. :(

Very rude to use a picture without asking.

We LOVE Wendy too! It's too bad not everyone has the same way of working...

Forever Foster said...

You are utterly adorable, Miss Prettypuss. It was very cheeky of the person to use your picture without asking.

Kea said...

Ditto, since Annie was up there a few week ago too. I don't mind if people copy, just ASK first! Or at least give proper credit and links.

Cory said...

If someone didn't tell you, you would have never known. We were glad you could come to our garden party for Jonesie, but mom wanted to make sure it was ok with your mom before you took the trip!

the nerve... that said, glad to see chilli is a star.

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

We just saw that pic on LOL Cheeseburger and thort it looked like Chilli!

Wendy is awesome!

Brian said...

Yep, everyone should be as thoughtful as Wendy!

meowmeowmans said...

What a cute photo of Chilli. Paws down for whoever borrowed it without asking, though!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

ADORABLE!!! But, that you must ask first to use something that doesn't belong to you! Shame on you, whoever you are!

CCL Wendy said...

I thought I would clear this up and I hope it's okay with you. I use ICHC (ICanhazCHeezburger) to make all of my LOLs, and once I download a picture, it's available to anyone who wants to caption it. The part I don't understand is why the source wasn't listed, because it should have me as being the source.

So, I hope it's okay with you if I still use some of your pictures from time to time, but that means they'll be out there for others to use. Please let me know if you have a problem with this.

Actually, I thought this particular caption was pretty funnier (even better than mine). Sometimes they lame, but this is a good one.

Cheers!

Lucy the Cat said...

Well, they definintely should have given you the credit at the very least. That being said, I can kind of see why they took the picture. Chilli looks sooo cute (as always).

Simba said...

I hadn't seen that picture before, since I have only been reading your blog for a few months. It IS a cute one, and as Wendy says, a fun caption. People SHOULD be nice and acknowledge sources.

Jacqueline said...

We love Wendy too...Cute picture, but we felt the same way about one of our pictures on that site; we were honored to be selected, but wished people would have known who we are, where to find us, etc...Hope you guys have a fun day...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Angel and Kirby said...

That is a cute picture but was rude of someone to just take it.

BeadedTail said...

That's too bad they stole Chilli's photo. It is a very cute photo and Chilli should get the proper credit she deserves!

Eric and Flynn said...

That is a cute picture of Chilli. We have seen ourselves on ICHC too.

Cosmo said...

Just send ICHC an email to let them know and they'll put your credit up. I've done that when I've seen my CB friends up there without a credit.

That's the problem with posting pictures on the innernets...they become free game for anyone. That's why some people will "brand" their photos with their website's name.

But Chilli is pretty cute there!

Noll's Nip said...

We love Wendy too. That is a cute photo of Chilli even though it would have been nice to have credit.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Yes, we agree totally! Those folks should not be allowed to post photos on such sites unless they own the photos.

Deb said...

Beautiful photos. Glad I found your blog and I will now follow. I am a lover of cats and good photos so I know I will enjoy popping in. My 6 senior cats are a great joy. Deb

Amy and The House of Cats said...

While we wish that they had given you the credit we do have to admit we are a bit jealous - none of our pics are used there. We think if you email them they will update the info.

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

I think branding your photos would be a good idea as they are all beautiful!!

Hope your Mom's head feels better!

Our Zoe wound up on that site once way back when she was a kitten. It was quite a surprise to stumble on that picture.
Thanks for your help with our vaccination decision. It's good to hear what everyone else is deciding and why. I think you're right and it's smart if we skip the rabies vaccine. I'll update with the decision we end up making.
Thanks again!

Yes, Wendy is such a great place to visit. She know just the right words to put with all of the wonderful photos!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

That is sure a cute picture! We thinks that it is important to let them know.

Ayla and Iza, said...

We are glad ya at least found out about the cute picture was used. It was clever. But they should be careful about credits. We mean, where would they BE without our pictures?

How rude of people to use pics without asking! We didn't know people did such rude things.
We hope you are having a good weekend; even though we have not been around as much, we think about you lots!
Chili, you are always just the cutest.

PurrPrints said...

I hope the person who did this is someone you can contact and ask to link properly to you? I found someone using one of my cat art pieces once on their blog without my permission, but once I talked with them about it they credited the picture and linked back to me. It's a super cute pic!

Anita said...

Felicidades Chilli! Eres toda una lolcat!!!

Feliz semana, amigas!

The photo is cute. And it's just plain bad manners to use it without asking!
