No excuse, (or 'paw marketing', har har)

          You know who has it easy? Who has no excuse for achieving anything less than 100% of his annual fundraising target? The marketing director of the Cat's Protection League. I mean, how can you say no to images of tiny, defenceless kittens, especially ones who look a bit hungry? 

Which is why their logo angers me. 


It angers me in the same way that Garfield angers me. Kittens are CUTE. Why make them look like bulbous, custardy blobs? Honestly, give me the marketing director's job for a week and I'll sort them out. Will accept kittens for payment.  


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
