...the milestone is pretty close by. I've never expected this to be this fast!
...was an incredibly fast journey so far.
good work by RGBstock team!
Now I couldn't resist posting this here:
How to give a cat a pill
Pick up cat and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat's mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.
Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process.
Retrieve cat from bedroom, and throw soggy pill away.
Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm holding rear paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right fore-finger. Hold mouth shut for a count of ten.
Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse in from garden.
Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously.
Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later.
Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with head just visible from below armpit. Put pill in end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil and blow down the straw.
Check label to make sure pill not harmful to humans, drink glass of water to take taste away. Apply band-aid to spouse's forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap.
Retrieve cat from neighbor's shed. Get another pill. Place cat in cupboard and close door onto neck to leave head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with elastic band.
Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door back on hinges. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for date of last tetanus jab. Throw Tee-shirt away and fetch new one from bedroom.
Ring fire brigade to retrieve cat from tree across road. Apologize to neighbor who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat.
Take last pill from foil wrap. Tie cat's front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table, find heavy duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of fillet steak. Hold head vertically and pour two pints of water down throat to wash pill down.
Get spouse to drive you to the emergency room, sit quietly while doctor stitches fingers and forearm and remove pill remnants from right eye. Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.
Arrange for RSPCA to collect cat and ring local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.
(An oldie, but I laugh every time I read it.)
@98:ROFL, Thanks, Dez, this is really a goodie.
@97: I agree, Patrycja, our cats would never again talk to us when we would try to force them to swallow a pill against their will. But this wouldn't matter anyway because we would not survive such an attempt.
@98 Fantastic!!! that's the truth!!
Nice one Dez, I suppose you have another one for the dog ? :)
Cats can be such a pill!
@98 what is so funny about this story? It is the truth. I managed to come to this point : "Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat " Then we gave up.
@93 my cats are to ugly for free stock photos. If you really want to see them, look at my Flickr account.
@103 Jay!!! your cats are beatiful - on this world exist two kind of cats - cats which are just cats, and cats which are professsional cats - yours are from this second kind - hypnotic eyes, look "I'm the king there" - it's perfect!!!
Cleopatra under blanket is my type for a stock photo... Give them a chance to be famous :-)
Thank you Patrycja. "professional cats" :) Love that.
Still working on the perfect cat-stock photo.
I like this one : http://bit.ly/bRaql0
The poor thing was so ill at that moment, but he luckily recovered and he is doing fine now.
Is the black and white cat in your gallery yours?
no, that is a street cat from Bergen - I have to upload pictures of my cats on facebook - I'm generally together with them on photos, so this not a stock photography - but I promise I will.. one of the photos of my cats was rejected from rgb - so I'm also working with a quality in this matter.There is photo of my cat -
it was photo for comepetition - in my desk drawer...
The RGB admins don't like cats. They are more 'wolf' types. I remember the competition,that was fun. Like your cat!
I love the one in the drawer! Your other cat has the same shaped features as a cat that belongs to a friend of mine. Colour him orange, and he would be identical. Very noble looking.
Kray - there is only one instruction for giving a pill to a dog:
Wrap pill in bacon. :o)
one more stat!
"Photographers photos online top 100" - everyone has at least more than 100 images!
I hope Dan is fattening and tenderising that moggy of his. I'm gettin' hungry.
45000 images/ 4000 users.
that's 100 images & 20 users a day! (from around the time this post was started)
I love the stats!
Here is a screenshot of our visitors chart for the last month.
You can see that yesterday we were just short of reaching the top of the graph. We were short by only 17.
Our daily average of new members is close to 30!
chugging along nicely..we've crossed the 5000 users mark, what would be the next target ?
50,000 images and 10,000 users?
its 10k users and 54k images!
We've done amazingly well!
We had an other kind of milestone with lots of zeros, this time around the numbers almost seem to line up perfectly:
The nicest kind of statistics, and excellent news!
Whose was the 60,000th image? Zela?
Haven't we done well to reach that number of images so quickly? Thanks to everyone who has uploaded here. We are a great site and we are going to be even bigger and better.
Great news and indeed this is the best place to be ! ;-)
20,000 users and 60,000 images.
nice numbers to see!
