The PoC Cat Hating Troll — 60 Comments

  1. Hahaha! imagine if Woody is actually a dog that has figured out how to use a computer and he’s just having everyone on!

  2. This is Sheela who came back to us after being terrorized by a toddler. There are bars on this window and the cats love to climb.

  3. Apparently the derivation of “trolling” in its internet use is from a fishing term – dangling a lure and seeing who will bite. On newsgroups there is a term “trolling for newbies” – seeing who is so new they will rise to the bait while older hands ignore the bait.

    • Good advice to ignore them Sarah. Well Woody has gone to the Bermuda Triangle now and although he managed to find an internet connection there he got no satisfaction because Michael is deleting his comments
      GOODBYE Woody!

  4. Look at Brinkley hugged up to Sealy. They all love each other so much. And they’re all safe from the road and predators and people like Woody.

  5. I love Woody too! He validates every lesson I try to drum into cat owners heads about the dangers of a cat being outside unsupervised. It’s not only traffic and wild animals people have to look out for. There are people like Woody who would as soon kill a cat as look at it.

    I’ve been accused of making outdoor cat owners paranoid and asked what evidence I have to back up my claim. Woody is my backup. Thank you Woody! No telling how many cats you’ve saved just by you being you and me being me and writing about the little termite infected creature.

    • It must be horrible living where it’s dangerous for cats to have their freedom, for them to be deprived of a fulfilled life by circumstances is bad enough, but to have people like Woody, with a gun to shoot them, is just beyond any horror.
      I just hope England never gets as bad, so far we still have cat friendly places thank goodness.

      • That’s why we have the house set up for the cats. They have cat trees and beds and window perches and toys. It was either save them and allow them an indoor life or they’d have been euthanized at the shelter. Very few places are safe for cats here. I’d be a nervous wreck with an outdoor cat. The cats are so close to each other. Most have a favorite buddy they sleep with

    • Elisa, how bad is it in America? I’ll rephrase that, how many men are there out there with guns who want to shoot stray cats? Is it a recognisable problem to be taken into account or is it a fairly rare hazard that a cat owner can pretty well ignore? Perhaps it depends on where you live. I suspect that that is the case. I would imagine that in the deep South, for example, there are more shooters and perhaps in places like Texas whereas is up north, the north-east, I would expect there to be less cat shooters but I’m probably painting a stereotypical picture and an untrue one.

      • The bigger problem is the humane trappers who take cages full of cats to the shelter and act like they should be rewarded. I think a lot of cats go missing from these traps or being shot or hit by cars or killed by animals and the family never knows what happened.



    Woody, Woody, Pee Pee Woody
    We felt you somewhere near
    Our ears were perked, our nasals flared
    We could almost feel your fear

    You were such a hurtful troll
    You never showed remorse.
    So someone took the needed steps
    And, sent you way off course.

    You thought that you could hide away
    Inside your little box
    But, being found you trembled so
    And peed way to your sox.

    Your box became your new best home
    And chained up nice and tight
    One itty bitty hole was drilled
    So you’d survive your flight.

    We have no clue to where you are
    It could be anywhere
    You must be where all trolls must go
    But I don’t give a care

  7. Sarah on the floor laughing!

    Ruth, what a fabulous poster!

    Trolls are truly disgusting. I try to ignore them but sometimes I just want to slap them upside the head.

    Thankfully there are enough readers that generally wipe up the floor with them… but then again the troll is getting the attention that is certainly not deserved.

  8. He he he that’s great sis, and it puts Woody nicely into perspective as a laughing stock, shame about the cost of postage to the Bermuda Triangle. Maybe he could retrain as a garden gnome.

  9. I would like to share with you P D Rieden’s recipe for Devilled Troll (Peter Rieden was a former colleague) in response to a particularly persistent specimen plagued a usenet group:

    “The problem with devilling trolls is that cleaning them is a waste of time, since the contents of the digestive track are 98% percent by weight. They are instead used as table ornaments. Since they are 80% hot air by volume they tend to deflate when they are exposed to reality, so they need to be expanded. You insert the Pineapple Crowns into all convenient openings and allow the crown leaves to expand inside. Voila a Martha Stewart original.”

  10. i just dont listen to what he/she says as it just draws attention. As well i really cant be bothered wasting my breath and energy on someone who got nothing better to do.

  11. I know how much Dee loves Woody Pee Pee lol and I must admit I thoroughly enjoyed designing this poster 😉 inspired by her comment

  12. The poster made me laugh. A good depiction of Woody. One of the key things about trolls is, as you say, they are frightened of being exposed. They hide behind their anonymity. Once they are exposed they scuttle off to hide again. I remember seeing a couple of British trolls on television entering the magistrates court because they had been prosecuted. They turned up hiding their faces and scuttling through the front door as fast as they could to avoid the cameras. They had come out from under a stone and could not bear the glare of the truth about their behaviour.

    I’m not sure that Woody actually hates cats. I just think that he loves to be a nuisance and he likes to irritate decent people for some distorted reason due to his inadequacy.
