What kind of person LIES about their cat being set on fire?  

I didn't think anyone could! People who have pets usually tend to... well... in one way or another care about their pets. But no! I found a winner here, folks. Meet city_glitter, one of the worst people I have (luckily) never had the chance to meet. I'm just going to post it here in my own journal because I don't think I've the right to add to the literal thousands of people commenting when I haven't been directly involved in any way.

Long story short, it goes like this: she came out wailing on LJ about how her cat had been set on fire by some crazy people on the fourth of July and began to take in donations from people to foot the $5000 veterinary bill.

Her case got spammed fifty ways across the internet, and hundreds of people fell over themselves to donate to the poor kitty. Enough to rack up the aforementioned $5000 I think and more. (See what nice things people will do when they want to help? See what horrible people like to squander that human decency for their own ends?)

Anyway, a friend of hers, foxfur, called her out on it, which eventually led her to be raked through the coals (but not before doing so herself, first) for speaking out and all those inevitable things that happen when you speak out by city_glitter's friends. Anyway. Questions were asked, wanks were had, shared, whatnot.

And so! city_glitter comes out again to "apologize". Because no! Her cat had never been burned, all that angst and worry and drama about her cat that she said she'd been going through was completely fake! It was all a "psyochological experiment" to prove to her father that there human kindness still existed.

Gotta love people who'll put their friends through hell defending them, and then rubbing their faces in the dirt by betraying their trust like that. Gotta love people who'll just up and steal $5000+ from hundreds of wonderful people, then turn around and drag her friends and her family into saving face.

Huh. *whines* I've lost my faith in humanity, look at what these horribly horrible people can do!!! I want it back!! Donate to me!!! :( :( :( !!


That said, I'm rather ashamed to admit that this issue was on my mind a heck of a lot more than the Londom bombing which killed dozens of people and which seems a heck of a lot more important than one girl lying about her cat, huge LJ drama though it sparked. I do care. But for me, all I've heard about is from my dad mentioning it. Word of mouth, telling me facts. It doesn't hit you the same, doesn't it? Or maybe I'm one of those crazy people who (actually) care more about animals than the whole human population... but I don't think I'm like that, am I? No, I know I'm not.

I had more to say. But they're silly personal things that don't really matter when faced with the rest of the stuff I've gone and posted about. Mostly me pouting at how the first thing my aunt says to me (aunt from HK whom I've not seen in nearly a year) is "Oh my god you need to lose weight!". Well, not really pouting. That involves caring a bit more, and I don't really. ;p

*yawn* 1:30 in the morning now. Not even going to try to formulate coherent sentences. Steph has to go to Toronto tomorrow to buy ginseng apparently. And stuff. Pack too. Mum rescinded promise of buying hair dye for Steph. Expected as much. (Man I hate being cynical about my family sometimes... >.>;;)

Even more tired now. All of you. Go look at my icon. I think it's the shiniest thing in the entire world and I laughed my ass off at it. And I don't know who/where it's from? Anyone know/can tell me so that I can credit?

Holy Moly
& to think I thought it was heartless for people to start rumors about the death of jrockers just to prove how easy fangirls believe rumors..
This attempt to prove a point is really out there.

I'm ecstatic thought that there is no suffering kittykat.. thank goodness for that.

What happened with the money anyway?

It seems to me that perhaps she can realign the universe a bit by doing some volunteer work - Forget what her father thinks.. she can be a living example of what compassion and caring is..

Re: Holy Moly
*groans* I know what you mean. And yes I'm glad that her cat is safe, although I'd very much wish that such a person would not own a cat if she can even imagine such things to happen to it. And especially since she's leaked out her contact information, and I've seen a lot of nasty people talking about how her cat should be set on fire for real. The poor cat...

And as for the money, apparently it's being refunded. A lot of people haven't gotten theirs back yet, but that's understandable I suppose, since there were literal hundreds that donated.

I don't think I've any right to judge, but from what I've heard and from what I read myself, and have come to the conclusion of: she committed a federal offense (I love America sometimes, with its scary, scary FBI threat), got caught, got charged, and then decided to "apologize" and construct this rigmarole involving her father and a psychological experiment that never existed to make concrete her "belief in the goodness of humanity".

Hee! I like the picture.
Stephanie: ayuhatmirroredsakura on July 10th, 2005 03:25 pm (UTC)
I know! It makes me happy. ^_^

Also, that person is just... guhsskfnnde.
Stephaniemirroredsakura on July 10th, 2005 03:25 pm (UTC)
And she... doesn't make me happy. :(

Which is why I went *glarehiss* at her, and read all those damned comment threads (@.@!!!) on six entries by her and foxfur and that anjimito and that fiery redhead whatnot.

o.O I have too much time on my hands I think... :S

And yes. Kneecaps indeed. ^_~

Ah, gotta love those people. It's sad that I'm not even surprised; still a tad angry, but not all that much even. Because I've seen these people dozens, probably hundreds of times in my years online. And they never, never stop. It's pathetic.

What I love about the response to the London bombings (I had, "what I love about the London bombings..." first, and y'know, not a great sentence) is that... Well, lots of people started off comparing this to 9/11, and you've got all these Americans (not just them, easiest to pigeonhole though) popping up (elsewhere in public too, but I'm talking about on massive fandom lj flists) going, "Oh no! You are in my prayers! Terror, terror, tragedy, woe!" and it was all very good-hearted. But the Brits? Rolled their eyes, scoffed a bit, made a cuppa, and wondered how they'd get to work the next day. *hugs British*

Eventually, all the "you're in my prayers!" posts were drowned by a whole lot of Brits making their usual dark jokes about the deal. Which is great, because while the prayers posts are all nice and good, there's only so much of the headless chicken reaction I can take before I refuse to open my flist for a week. Besides, the Brit reaction helps render the terrorist act futile.

... This so has nothing to do with your post. Girl=dumb. *nodsnods* Can I have her cat? Deserves a better owner, that one. (I think she said she really did have a cat.)

Iconlove, mhmm!

*goes* Laundry. Bleh.

Umm... wow. @.@;; That's just.. not normal. :x

I'll say. *pets the poor kitty who's mistress possesses such a crazed imagination that she'd go into such detail about the pain the kitty was suffering. ;_; Evil girl!
Ryugoryu482 on July 10th, 2005 04:28 pm (UTC)
People can sure be cruel and fucked up. That is really messed up, and my coutry's crazed intense legal system and bureaus will deal with her hopefully.
Stephanie: ayuhatmirroredsakura on July 10th, 2005 07:35 pm (UTC)
Well you certainly have your FBI, which is a pretty scary threat for criminals that have been charged with stuff like fraud. ^.^ I do like that's what got her backtracking and coming out with this "experiment" story in the first place.

Stupid woman.
feneryfenery on July 10th, 2005 05:18 pm (UTC)
Im still shocked that anyone would do that T_T
Stephaniemirroredsakura on July 10th, 2005 07:36 pm (UTC)
*pets your cat* At least Leah has a mistress that won't tell stories about her mutilation!!

*runs to steal Schro away for herself :(*

I'm glad that there is no burned cat... that's really the only good thing out of that whole pile of shit. Honestly, how could someone do THAT to people? It makes me sick...
Stephanie: ayuhatmirroredsakura on July 10th, 2005 07:38 pm (UTC)
Well, it's a believable story in and of itself. If she'd had proof (heaven forbid!!), it would certainly make sense. Fourth of July, people do stupid things. My cousin's friend down in Ohio had a cat. It got stolen, tied to a firerocket and... yeah. >.<;;

I can't understand people like that. This girl is just as bad. ;_;

Stephaniemirroredsakura on July 12th, 2005 08:32 am (UTC)
I am one of the most optimistic person alive. One of those weird believe-the-best-in-people people. o.O;;

So yeah, I know what you're talking about. But people are stupid. RAR. ;p
