Yoga Cat asks for his bath

Yoga Cat is Stolen and possibly Hotlinked

Yowie hangs out here in the bathtub. If he can’t get me to give him a bath,then he diddles in the water while I take one myself.

UPDATE:  Yoga Cat Yowie has found his picture stolen and posted on another website that did not ask him if it was okay to do without any link back to him and his stories.  Therefore Yoga Cat Yowie found it necessary to have his photographer make sure his photos were labeled with the copyright notice that tells people it actually is.  Those would be the people that don’t read the notice on the actual page.

In addition, Yoga Cat Yowie believes this picture to be hotlinked to.  Which is considered to be tacky and not permissible unless permission is obtained.  AND in addition to all that Yoga Cat Yowie only found this out by sheer accident searching on the wide wide web.  He is sad and totally can’t believe people are that greedy.  Personally, his photographer isn’t too surprised.

I’ll  post more on this subject, but right now that’s just the bare minimum.  Just to let you know, the website that did this was one I came upon quite accidentally, and I have sent them a take down notice.  They make a huge deal about all their photos being “public domain”, and I know mine are NOT public domain.  I own the copyright to each and every one of them.

This website is one of those duplicates that have no real subject matter, are full of pictures of furniture, and decorating, and everyone else’s photos so that they can generate loads of traffic on the backs of other peoples work.  If this keeps on I’ll probably out them on my blog, but right now I’m just waiting for them to fess up and take my picture of Yowie off their web page of “CATS IN BATHTUBS”  And they have several other websites and each one has the same page as this one.

Right now, I’ll see if they’re hotlinked since I changed the picture, it should show up on their website as the new one.
