I consider the two cats on this ‘Abandoned Account’ my Foster Pets
Tommy takes care of my “Wish List”. These are things I found in Shop that I would like to buy when I can save up for them.

Perhaps you would enjoy reading our story from the very beginning? I wrote it in the form of a Journal…
4/29/10 Someday I will be selling beautiful kitties from this page, but right now I am just a poor merchant lady, trying to get by on a few FooGems. I played YarnBarn & got enough to buy my dear cat this nice scene from Starters. He likes to roll around on the fresh green grass…but those dandelions make him sneeze! Please do not ask Madam Fu to buy from you, because I have nothing—nothing but a few fresh flowers. But perhaps, soon my luck will change! Perhaps you might buy some small thing from me? If you have done this, thank you kind FooFriend!
4/30 I, too, am part of the protest against Admin in the matter of Beta. As you can see, my good friend Helden gave me some used furniture & a crown & castle for my Little King! (Please do not believe those who say she is a terrible dragon-lady who eats little kids for breakfast. She only shoots her fiery breath at text speakers, spammers & those who send chain letters. And you must admit it: they do deserve to become crispy critters! [Note: I used to have the Beta Protest picture here, but Beta is now regular play, so we cannot live in the past. ~ Madam Fu]
5/1 As you can see, I now have my White Star! I have discovered a way to earn some FooGems & Starpoints: When you are on your profile page, substitute m for the www in your url. Push Enter & care for your pets as if you were on a mobile phone. This will enable you to feed your pets faster & more efficiently. Every time you push “Play” & your pet catches the mouse or frisbee, you will get 5 Star Points & 5 FooGems! This is truly Good Karma! In the last two days, I earned 8 FooDollars by watching the video commercials. Soon I will have enough FDs to buy a second cat! And today, I have over10,000 FooGems! I will soon have enough to buy a few special items for my sale! [Update 6/23/10: Petting heads for 3fgs is now limited to one payment per pet per day; to get the 5fgs for catch repeatedly, you must leave the page & come back.]
5/3 I have spent my 15,000 FooGems on merchandise for my Cinco de Mayo sale! Little King & I are very excited about beginning to earn FooDollars to buy a White Cat to be a friend for Little King. I now have 14 Foodollars from watching the commercials.
5/5 I will be looking after some of these pets now. My new friend – Blessed Be – (link below) provides links to easily-fed Pokey pets for non-paying players on her page.Green Star here I come!
5/6 I now have 42fds saved to get my special cat! But I will need many more than this, so I have been working in the YarnBarn. It takes me some time to earn many fgs, since I am not a fast player & get a mere 200-350 points a game, but I am thrifty & work hard. What pretty & colorful things there are in the Shop this month of May! I am now a Level 17, soon to be 18, FooApprentice!
5/7 My first objective has been reached! I now have 86 fds saved up & I have my Green Star. And now I must work in the YarnBarn to earn fgs for my next sale items. My friends are helping me. Life is good!
5/9 HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! I now have 92fds saved up for my new 5/5 White Cat. Someone offered me a cat for 20fds, but I think she wanted to sell the cat because it was 4/5 instead of 5/5 & then delete the new account. This is not a good thing to do. It is a waste of pets.
5/11 Lady Luck has smiled on Madam Fu! I won 5fds on the Wheel this morning & Little King was very happy for me! My new friend Kendra1985 gave Little King a lovely cat tree. I put it in his TV Room, where he spends many happy hours watching the “HDTV 3-D ‘All Fish’ Channel.” Kendra1985 & I plan to buy White Cats and become breeding partners. A kind person in Trading Forum is giving away a Litter License, and I am hoping that Kendra or I may be given one. I have now saved up 110fds for my White Cat.
5/13 I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the beautiful White Kittens. I passed another goal today: I have my Red Star! I have 124fds to buy my future cat. I bought Little King another blue jewel for his treasure room. (He was sad that I sold his necklace!)
5/14 Today, I was given my Bonding Badge. I am proud and happy to have the sign that I care for Little King every day.
5/15 Today I received a wonderful gift: Plum Blossom, from my dear friend, teegiewooo. She has made it possible for me to get a Siamese breeding queen and still have the FooDollars for my White queen or stud. Many, many thanks!
5/19 Thank you Lady Luck! 5fds more from the Spinner!
5/22 Well, I bought the beautiful Lady Mira from my friend Wolfie491 this evening. She was able to reduce the price a bit and also buy a few things from my sale so I could afford to get my second breeding queen. Mira is so gentle and delicate; a pleasure to interact with. And, she is of breeding age, as well. Once again, I am a poor merchant, but now I own a Pearl of Great Price!
5/24 My breeding partner Kendra1985 has found a fine, high stat white kitten for herself! Now all we have to do is to save up to buy our breeding licenses. I have earned 15fd from my sales already! This evening Lady Mira is checking out the Treasure Room, Plum Blossom is chasing butterflies, and Little King is enjoying the last episode of in the TV Room, and, on my way to the next goal…your hopeful, Madam Fu.
5/27 My friend Helden gave me our Amah-Chan today. What a surprise! You can tell your friend to sell you some small thing for 22fds. Then you put your cat on sale for 20fds & get the secret url to give to your friend in a message with a small gift. (In this case, I was given the Palace Bathroom scene.) Then your friend uses the url to buy the pet for 20fds. So the small spayed cat gets a home with me, and I do not lose any fds to get her. I have saved 36fds from my sale & I am encouraging my breeding partner, Kendra1985, to have some good sales as well. I now must go and earn some fgs from caring for pets. So good night!
5/30 Today I am having guests for dinner so I am tidying the house. Little King is in the pasture enjoying the nice weather & rubbing his head on all the new foals in our herd so they will know who they belong to. Amah-Chan has taken over mouse catching duty, and the ladies are angry about that…they say she takes all the mice! But Amah-Chan has nothing else to do! There are no kittens yet. Today I have 75fds from my sales. Plum Blossom shows you a new & simple way to make a lovely patriotic portrait of your pet: start a new scene, enlarge & center the picture & “save”. Then add a pet, position it, then…snap! Lady Mira is vegging out in front of the TV, and looking for lost pieces of popcorn under the chairs.
5/31 Now the sun is going down here in Northern California & we have had a beautiful Memorial Day. Today I made my Blue Star & my friend ILUVBOXERS13 sent me a Blue Jewel for Little King’s Treasure Room. My new friend Gypsy, who has many pets, bought many nice items for scenes from my sale so I am now at 97fds. And two other, younger friends, decided not to be angry with each other. This is a good thing, to remain friends.
6/2 Yesterday I bought my first Litter License and asked my friend Kendra1985 to breed with her cat Siriol. Neither of us knew what we were doing! In any case, it is 5pm & I am up to 8fds again, beginning to save up for my Plum Blossom’s age advance, since she is a bit young to breed. (I have my hopes of getting a Bengal breeding queen as well! Autumn’s owner has returned & she has been sold, and Helden has a chance to acquire her for my breeding page.)
6/3 Golden Poppy is another breeding queen that was given to me—that is, my friend paid 2fds to transfer her here.
6/8 I now have another prospective breeding partner, iris11aquagirl! I was going to buy Caden but iris’ friend wanted to sell him to her, so we can breed Caden with Golden Poppy when we are both ready. I am up to 42fds already.
6/10 Many of you may wonder where our maid, Amah-Chan went. Here is the story: Amah-Chan was looking at my photo album of pet pictures & she saw pictures of Helden’s Schroedinger & Mr Lucky. She could not stop looking at those handsome guys and wanted to go live over there on Helden’s page. I told her that both of those boy cats had been fixed and she said that it was fine because she was intending that either the one or the other or both would be her boyfriends and she didn’t want any broken boyfriends. (I just let that stand, as you can imagine!) And I said, Well, if you are going there, you will no longer be a maid! So what is your true name? And she shyly whispered in my ear what sounded like “Mimi.” So you may visit our Mimi-Chan at Helden’s page, and good luck to her with her love life! : ) Helden sent us 2 more nice cats for breeding: Scimitar, our handsome Bengal, and Powder Puff, our cuddly Himmie. Please pet and love them all you want to!
6/16 This is a good news and bad news day for us: The good news is that Autumn Moon will soon be living here, the mate for Scimitar, and the bad news is that beginning last night many problems occurred with mobile, so perhaps we are all stuck at our Star level for the time being. It may be a glitch (as Admin says) or it may be a change. More news later… Our beautiful Autumn was a prisoner in foster care for several months, and she has gone from her owner to another to my gaming partner, Helden, and me. This will be her home for always. No more moving around, except to other parts of the palace, or to holiday scenes, etc.
6/19 That gaming partner has been banned, and now I am trying to get her pets over here if possible. If necessary I will buy them, but I think all is lost. Her page, her things, scenes & pets. Good people have come on to help, so maybe there is hope. We are roommates, using the same comp and I went to the library to do this update & reply to the many kind messages which came in from friends trying to help. (Your Madam Fu, and Helden need your prayers & kind thoughts at this time.)
6/21 I have my 50 day bonding today. A happy and sad day, because my gaming partner is not yet back.
6/28 Helden is back, and may have to re-buy her membership, but all is okay otherwise.
6/29 The Big Story of the week is that FooMojo got “thousands of requests from users” not to let the as-yet-unfriended members send us messages. Thousands of frustrated members voted against this change today. (I guess the idea was to block spam or chain letters before they got here, but that method of doing it was a terrible idea.) It is getting very difficult for your normally cheerful & polite Madam Fu to have a positive attitude about anything.
7/3 Sales are never very good on a holiday weekend, but this weekend so far they are non-existent! YarnBarn is not giving me my points & both Member Support & Give Us Feedback are not working. We are now able to message anyone, but Helden said “Stop feeding!” to our oldest & dearest friend, and she defriended us both. sigh
7/8 Today is the birthday of Scimitar & Athena’s litter. Six beautiful bouncing baby Bengals! Again, three are mine to sell, and I named them Sneakers, Lancer and Pounce. (Cute names?)
7/16 Now as you can see, my new kitties are in their comfy but colorful scenes & making themselves at home for the time being, waiting for you to come buy them. I have been giving them some catching practice today! (The “facts of life” come later for the young ones!) Mimi-Chan is enjoying the attentions of both Mr Lucky & Schroedinger. Mimi is still playing the field & not promising anyone anything! Mr Lucky is a suave gentleman, and very handsome, but Schroedinger brings her a mouse a day & a bird on Sundays! She has dismissed the nasty rumors that Schroedie is on hard drugs…He said that he enjoys occasional catnip, but it is for medicinal purrrrrposes only & he never inhales! At this statement, Mimi-Chan rolls her eyes! (That psychedelic scene!!) Little King has been making eyes at “older woman” Powder Puff, but no, Little King! Not for you! The course of True Love is never smooth…
7/21 Lotus Blossom (now renamed “Willow”) http://www.foopets.com/pet/11242570 and Kabuki Girl http://www.foopets.com/pet/11242574 went to their new homes last night, and we say goodbye & wish them well! Pounce was put on reserve, so she, too will have a new home soon.
7/22 Dear little Sneakers was lucky for me today at 5 past midnight: I won 5fds on the Wheel! The person who reserved Pounce was scammed, so she will be staying here with us for a bit. Iris11aquagirl got her LL & is now earning for her acceleration of Caden. I applied for a free Nebelung in the Breeder’s Forum, but I think I will not be given it. Good night, all.
7/25 Pounce went to her new home http://www.foopets.com/pet/11269888 with a friend of mine who only has two other cats—all the rest of the pets are dogs. (Ugh.) My friend was scammed by a naughty child, and she is trying to get her 100fds back to buy her dream pet Legacy. I wish people would be fair & not scam one another. “Let your yes be yes, and your no be no” as it says in Proverbs.
7/27 A new friend, MISSTIGGLEWIGGLE, bred this incredible litter of Russian Blue Kittens Bargain priced Male & Female are offered for 35fds each!! Since she is not in competition with me, I can put a little ad for her here! [Note10/3/17 You can see how the stats of this "incredible litter were affected by the changes in Foo at this time.]
7/28 Well, my friend Kendra1985 snapped up the female RB and I—well, you know that I cannot resist a bargain!—so I took the male. I have to think of a very elegant name for my new cat! What shall it be??
8/2 I named my RB “Sputnik” and a little orbiting bundle of energy he is too! I tried for a 5/5 Aby, but the offerer gave it to her friend, as usual. A friend who has two other 5/5 Abys. Oh well.) What is it with Abys? The stats are all over the place? Did everyone start breeding low stat at once??
8/3 Kendra & I made a mistake and our RBs are not pure bred. However, I would like to get a Calico and breed with Sputnik so I could have other colors of cats to sell. They would be 5/5s (Fine Felines) but just not pure bred. It is certainly easier to buy cats than it is to sell cats.
8/8 Now I own a 5/5 female pure Russian Blue cat named “Lace” sold to me by a friend. How do I feel about this? I have been going to Breeders Forum to find out what is happening there with cat prices—and they are low. So after my dear little Golden Poppy’s kittens are born, I will stop breeding for a while, redesign my ads, and perhaps even reduce the cost of my kittens a bit. Informal price fixing amongst the members could have made it more profitable to breed cats, but I do not want to just breed cats that I have to give away for almost nothing. It does not make any sense to me that a low-stat Pokey that looks flat & doesn’t even work too well in the present game can command 100fd prices, but no one will pay half that for my modern pure Foo 4/5s. (To me this is like demanding extra money for some fad Pokemon card or a Beanie Baby.) So I will keep my pets & enjoy them, and sell my Fine Feline kittens and if necessary give a little extra something to the buyers—and I may even give a kitten away later on, depending on how I feel, just to make someone happy! And I will not make the distinction between stars when & if I do it. Because sometimes the young ones need to get something free & nice when they are starting out. One of my White Cats will go to Helden, as part of our deal, too, whichever one she wants, except for my cat Mira. If I find an Abyssinian & a Nebelung, it would be nice, but not necessary. I will eventually find good ones and a 4/5 or 5/5 Calico as well. Admin made a big mistake in allowing acceleration of age! People with many FDs buy up several of the new pets and begin breeding the next day so they can sell, sell, sell. That feature has plunked many pets in The Shelter, saddled the community with extra, unsellable pets & brought the prices way, way down. Abys and Nebbies prices will drop too—as beautiful as they are!—simply because something new will come out. These are my thoughts this Sunday evening…
8/9 Silverstar-Tanner, a young friend, picked Sneakers http://www.foopets.com/pet/11269884 to be her pet. She chose the name “Allyana” for her, a pretty name for a girl cat. I made a new banner for when my Orange kitties get here: It says: “Madam Fu’s Fine Felines, White Cat! Bengal! Orange!”
8/13 On the 11th, after I had almost given up, I bought two unrelated Abyssinians from different sellers for a very modest amount of FooDollars. They are not 5/5s but I think that they will produce a decent litter—I will try them out & then, depending on what results, I will consider breeding them again or just give Helden one & keep one for myself. I did want an Aby for the longest time, but I do not know the situation with prices & stats—the stat situation bothers me. I am still looking for a 5/5 Calico, and actually wrote to someone who had 4, and I don’t know how she got so many of them, or why she wanted to keep them all, but I do want one, and may end up paying the most for just that cat! lol! Well, at least they are not as expensive as real vet bills, or real cats from the shelter. I hope all will have a happy weekend!
8/17 I have been getting acquainted Marsha656, who is a very nice person & the owner of the Calicoes and she bought some things from my sale so I could get one of her cats as a mate for Sputnik! (Of course I had my Expert choose which one I should buy.) It is a very unusual thing for me to be doing, planning this one time to produce mixed breeds. Marsha can come & visit her former cat any time she wants. The thing about Foo is that you can check up like that just as if you were next door.
8/21 This is Happy Birthday to Golden Poppy & Caden’s litter, but I would like to break the pattern: two 5’s, two 4’s and two 3’s. All 3 of my litters have been like that…no matter what my Expert says they will be. Here I am trying to do scientific breeding & getting the same thing every time!
8/25 Here is is almost the end of August & we here in Foo Country are experiencing a heat wave. Yesterday: 10am, on the shaded porch, already 93f. (Crash!! That is the sound of another record falling!) I thought you might enjoy this, from a posting I sent to Corinelle recently concerning changes in the game. "Maybe more realistic things should be put in such as: Your dogs howl & snap when not fed for a while? Or a notice: ‘Your dog has raided the cupboard & torn open the dog food bag. You must buy more food. And take the dog to the vet—it’s sick!’ lol Worms in the stool? Dog turning back & ignoring you if it’s not fed enough? Maybe the euthanasia option: Don’t want to give/sell/shelter pets? Cull! People would threaten to cull rather than threaten to Shelter! That would make it more “realistic” [as a pet game] because now it is a social & economics game."
8/26 Well, my experiment with the cat boxes is over now so all of my pets will be either in yellow or green again. No, I was not starving them (see bonding green bars) but allowing the bottomless catbox to activate.
9/1 Happy September, everyone! Yesterday, our kitten White Jade http://www.foopets.com/pet/11068301 went to his new home at BengalsRule-4mauicat. (Soon we will have our little Orange ones here—well, at least one, since the others are reserved!)
9/6 Today, Labor Day, marks the unification of Helden (room mate & gaming partner) & my pages. She has always sent me items for my own use from time to time, but yesterday, since she had about half a million fgs, she sent me a dozen or so items specifically to sell on this page. In the past we have occasionally exchanged pets, and she has comped a couple of pets that I could not afford to buy since my whole focus and all my virtual finances were being put into the original White Cat Project. (Getting cat-finding partner-breeding-selling the White Cats.) I will continue to breed using only my own FooDollars, but I will have more & varied items to sell thanks to Helden’s excessive accumulation of FooGems. Hers is an information/sale/personal pets page. Mine is a breeding/sale/personal pets page. I hope all my FooFriends have had a good long weekend! We have been struggling with our slow home computer, catching up on tasks such as flea treatments & replying to notes from friends, and struggling through the slow process of feeding with Bad Kitty coming up every few seconds or so. (This is because the Public Library here in Santa Clara is was closed Sat-Mon.)
9/16 Today our dear Joyful Heart http://www.foopets.com/pet/11242572 left his fancy scene & went to his comfy new home: He now has a new name & a future mate! I accelerated Marjani today & bought a second LL so she & Nkosana could breed. Good luck to them! Now we wait… I will prepare some scenes for the new kittens. This is the first litter that will be all mine!
9/20 Lancer http://www.foopets.com/pet/11269886 went to his new home today! The programmers at FooMojo have improved the operation for us free players quite a bit, and now we can design scenes & use the play screen at home! Now to work toward my Gold Star…..grrrrrrrrrrr!
9/23 All that remains to be sold are one 4/5 Orange & a spayed Orange that I bought by mistake (see Lucinda’s profile.) So, a couple more accelerations & I have Sputnik & Fan Dancer tucked in together! If I breed my Himalayan & my Tux Mix, it will be with outside partners, but I am very picky about mating them!
10/1 Another nice girl, cowphant, asked to breed her cat with Poppy, and after having the match checked, I went ahead & accepted. That way I only have a manageable number of Orange cats since I have my two litters coming. I have an offer for my little Lucinda, who is not reserved, and for one RB & one Aby! and I may soon be getting a new, separate location for my kittens for sale, which will be called: “Madam Fu’s Kitten Parade.” [Note:“reservations” for L. & the RB fell through—so my cats will be on public sale.]
10/7 Nope. No new page for me! Well, that’s ok. My gaming partner Helden made her Gold Star! Me next!
10/10 I usually don’t “copy & paste” but I came across this on -maggiesmum’s profile:
10/18 Our darling Abyssian litter arrived safely—and two are already spoken for! There will be a “bargain priced” female & two 4/5s available for sale soon & for reserve now.
10/20 Sputnik & Fan Dancer’s litter has arrived, and you can reserve them—my first Fine Feline Mixies!
10/23 I make a note to myself to give 2mad2 first choice on Sputnik & Fan’s next litter.
10/24 My two remaining Orange cats were sold today, Lucinda http://www.foopets.com/pet/9904890 and Little Red http://www.foopets.com/pet/11334329 (Who is now called princess blue & lives in Alaska!) Soon my new Orange cats will be here :) I always remember my sold cats & visit them from time to time.
10/27 After much work & swollen hands I have my Gold Star. It took me 6 months to get it. I arranged my Ribbons & reserve-scenes at the top of the sale so people see them first. Then I bought about 150,000 of merchandise for the beginning of Nov. but did not post yet, since I have my max of 5 page sale. I looked up some dividers on Glitter Graphics so I can change for holidays & answered messages etc. Tomorrow my Aby kits come in & will be put in their scenes. Today I also went through the links I got from BlessedBe’s fostering page, changing some of the pets out (the ones other people were regularly clicking on) and adding a few others (ones less frequently cared for.)
11/3 Adoptions before & after reservations are going well. Here are some of the cats raised by me through weaning: Dusk http://www.foopets.com/pet/11387315, Azur http://www.foopets.com/pet/11387319, Isobel http://www.foopets.com/pet/11387316, Lilliekit http://www.foopets.com/pet/11387318. My two Orange cats were reserved immediately, so will not show up on my page.
11/10 Until further notice I will not be buying from either the FooShop or from private sales. If you want to get your Scene Tab back, I suggest you do the same, whether of not you have a ClubFoo membership. Later: I sold my last Calico kitten http://www.foopets.com/pet/11387314. I will look in on her from time to time! Oh I so want that scene tab..
11/11 I am now unable to use the Play screen at all at home, and neither is Helden, although she has ClubFoo. I posted a lot of things I had in Inventory, that I bought a few days ago, but did not get into my scenes or buy anything, because I am not going to do that. I will sell out all my merchandise & kittens, and close my store & I will just be plain Madam Fu, and feed my cats on my 900fg. per day and my 2 million I saved up if I never get my Scene tab back. This is my Day 200 Anniversary. Whoopee.
11/20 Yes, I went back on my word (above) and have been picking up some Christmas merchandise to sell from the Highly Rated Scenes through Shop. (Otherwise, I would have nothing Christmasy to sell! ) Little King & I wave goodbye to Leroy http://www.foopets.com/pet/11387317, who went to a new home yesterday. Orange was successful for me, so I will breed my Oranges for Christmas. I have built up my fds again enough to do that.
11/25 Thanksgiving Day: Yesterday FooMojo decided to raise the FooTax to 50% and to make the minimum pet resale price 45fds. Dr Ron said if we wanted profits to raise our prices on items. I purchased a black kitten, Haiti, but only because I agreed beforehand to do it. I am considering whether to buy a mate for Plum Blossom, but I don’t know what will happen here. I don’t think that many paying members will sign up again & if I am given a time frame of sign up or get your page deleted, I will be hastily selling all my cats, giving away everything & leaving. My friend is upset, and I want to be careful not to breed more cats that will end up in the shelter. FooMojo makes the profits disappear & is packing the Premium area of Adoption with very high stat pets so you will buy from them not from me. I like to play here, but I am wondering why I worked for my Gold FooMystic Star.
11/26 because I had expressed an interest to the owner, I also purchased Plum’s Thai Beau (“Siam Royalty”) from WatchDogz. Well, this decision will influence nothing here. If we are still around in 4 months when he & Plum Blossom age in, they will be bred, but I don’t want to do that yet. I think Ball O’ Fire (I will age him) & Golden Poppy need their chance first. People like to buy an Orange kitten! I would even give the kittens away if I could—I love that breed. Well, Little King wants more turkey gravy poured on his kibble, and he is getting too loud for me to think so I will go for now.
11/29 Well, I hope you who read this are a good FooPet owner and not a bad one. Today I go to check on my Lotus Blossom (Icekit) and she is blocked & being fed by the FooSam. Yes, people need to be away sometime, but if you unblock feeding on your pets, your friends will care for them! Please be responsible in this way. It is so very simple to do! Pirouette’s sister Snow Flake is being fed by Helden, and Kabuki Girl I bought back. All these pets are 5/5s & 4/5s! Not something to end up in the Shelter!
12/8 I have been getting calls from Mimi-Chan about the situation over at Helden’s. She got a Nebbie and his name is Omri. He & Schroedinger have been so-called playing chess, according to Mimi-Chan. Schroedie reaches the back of the board & shouts ‘King me!" Omri pounces on his king, bats it under the table and then tries to eat it. Sometimes the game is like Tic-Tac-Toe, but no one is smart enough to choose the middle square, so, as Mimi says, it is possible to have 2 losers in that game! When she looked at their stats, well, she understood everything. (They are about smart enough to aim their butts at a cat box, but no smarter!) Mimi-Chan has been rubbing against the more-intelligent Mr Lucky & purring. Even though she thinks he’s gay. (No, its another problem!) Well, good night & wish me luck selling the #2 LL of the night!
12/10 This will be no mystery to you: Helden was suspended for the 3rd time, from Fri. night through Sunday night. But we were better prepared for it this time. The flea treatment cost skyrocketed from 1000fgs to 20,000fgs. And suddenly the price of the LL dropped in Shop from 100 to 50fds. Yes, I have a bunch. No, I am not going to use them for breeding. They will be sold. Yes I am stockpiling food. You do the same.
12/27 It is with great sadness that I posted some of my cats for sale today, but I feel that I have no choice. I cannot breed them so they must go to new homes. I suspect my gaming partner wants the ones she doesn’t have, so I will be talking to her in person about this.
1/1/11 This is a uniquely numbered day! This past week I got 4 new cats and sold two to Helden. (They were breeds she didn’t have.) I have these wonderful Nebbes now, and a darling mate for Sir Purrsival, who is now purring with happiness. I don’t care if I sell any of my cats. I will just keep & care for them all without breeding, if it comes to that, and make some nice scenes for them. Happy New Year to all! Don’t be concerned about 2012 coming up—that is superstition & a movie that wasn’t very good or even scary, just a bunch of virtual people being killed. (I don’t like that kind of movie.)
3/3/11 Well, here I am in March, and no entry for about 2 months! I guess I will be doing some St. Patrick’s day scenes for this month & continuing to buy & sell. No breeding makes the game kind of boring, but I will spend a few FooDollars to make some nice environments for my pets. I think I have as many as I want. If I get more, I will just have to make that many more scenes!
3/11/11 On the 9th of March, I adopted my one-and-only dog, Crunchie, our guard dog. He is so cute the way he chases the frisbee! Now I will buy some dog toys for him.
3/23 Helden & I have been helping out Miss TiggleWiggle (Beth) with ShopCat, her physical therapist’s page. Beth is on a much needed vacation to the sea side. Helden goes on another ski weekend in a couple of weeks. Both of us need to get our taxes done! It’s that time of year.
4/3 Very big changes on the site! (But you know that already.) I just now checked on some pets I sold. These were originally two 5/5 parents & they produced kittens 2, 2 & 2 of 3/5, 4/5 & 5/5. I was happy to see that only one of their little ones got put into the Shelter. One, unfortunately, is being cared for by the PetSam. I will breed my darling Calico kitty again! Not right away, but that is in the future. All things change.
4/5 I find this kind of situation very depressing http://www.foopets.com/breeding/29144 I would like to care for Scimitar’s kittens, but since I am not friends with the owners or they are in the AC I can’t do that.
4/7 Today we received some very sad news. http://www.foopets.com/topics/show/2033484?forum_id=6&post_count=1523 All people who do not pay for Foo will not be allowed on the site. So on April 26th I will have bought & given away over 2,500,000 in FooGem items to friends on my list who intend to pay & stay on the site. I just began playing here because my friend wanted some information about breeding. I was good at making fds by selling things and that was the most fun thing for me. There is not much of a “community” here any more now that all the things we enjoyed have been taken away, and we can’t trade or sell to each other, so I will leave on the 26th. It is best that way. My pets will be left in nice scenes, and I will go to my preferences & open everything up to all the Friends on my list so that anyone who stays can still come & visit my pets & foster them. All who come to this page will be able to read about how someone with very little computer experience was able to ‘pull herself by her bootstraps’ and have fun in FooPets. I loved the old FooPets very much and it will always be a fond memory for me. I will miss my pets & my friends here. If you would like to write to me, please identify yourself by your game name! Otherwise I will not know who you are. My email address is madamfu @ hotmail.com We can share information about new pet games we all will be interested in! Lots of people here are going to Alacrity & Howrse, and also superpokepets. There are many pet sims that you can go to when FooPets closes its doors forever. Today someone offered to adopt Little King, and I was very grateful that he will be going to a new home!
4/10 I have decided to leave Little King on this page, since he has been such an integral part of it from my very first day here. All 9 of my 5/5 cats will be sold to the Adoption Center prior to my leaving on May 20th of this year. I will leave their links with their original names here as well, so you will be able to buy the pet & keep its name if you wish :) I found out that probably after Club memberships expire people will not be able to go to their friends’ pages and look at them. But if there is a pet you care about on your friend’s page, you should take down the number & experiment! Maybe you could still see the pet!
4/22 Amazon had trouble with it’s cloud yesterday. (No. I don’t know what that means so don’t ask me! lol) and the site was down for a day, but came back on today. I have signed up for 1 month of ClubFoo which will be canceled on around May 19. Up to that time, I am gifting all my things away & selling pets.
5/3/11 Helden & I have been helping out on ShopCat for MissTigglewiggle, to sell all the pets, and this morning ShopCat went to freeze & we had sold all the pets (I mostly just bumped the ad in Breeder Forum!) I have had many offers for some of my pets! And, I have been giving away things to friends old & new. It’s fun but it takes a long time every day. In Saratoga Library it’s faster, so I go there a lot when I am able, but there is a time limit for the comps there. Well, there is a time limit on this page too so I keep up with my requests for stuff! lol I don’t know if you realize it but many of us can’t even play with our pets unless we go to another comp somewhere that is faster. This has been the case since Beta was made regular play. Even people with brand new comps have been complaining of this, and there are some who always take Foo’s side & call them “Whiners & complainers.” But I think we have something to complain of in this case. (Later) I have been very concerned that what happened with Freddie & his mate not happen to Plum & Thai Beau. But it looks like the kitties will be here on this page on May 19th, so If you would like to adopt Plum Blossom, Plum’s Thai Beau or one of their kittens, let me know. (I am deleting all the messages I get after replying to them except the ones concerning offers to adopt.) If you have offered—I have not forgotten you, but I need to distribute the gifts & break down some of the scenes first.
5/4 I have decided to sell 12 cats off this page: Ball o’ Fire, Scimitar, Haiti, Fan Dancer, Plum Blossom, Plum’s Thai Beau, Sputnik, the 3 Nebelungs, and the Tuxedo pair. As of this writing I have offers for the Nebelungs, Fan, the Tuxes, Sputnik & Haiti. However, I want to encourage others to ask, and I will be posting an ad beginning next week. All the rest will remain in scenes on this page, unless someone really, really begs me & has been here a while & has a high Bonding Badge. My reason for doing this is that I have seen too many cats deleted lately, good cats in every way, and the lower stat cats I allow to remain here will be safer here than in the Adoption Center. (Later) I sold my Tux pair to LadyTuxedo! They look so cute in their black & white scenes! Sir Purrsival http://www.foopets.com/pet/10652968 & Lady Priscilla http://www.foopets.com/pet/11040067 were very happy to meet their purrrrfect new friends Lord Tuxedo & Lady Tuxedo!
5/5/11 VIVA CINCO de MAYO! This is the Anniversary of my very first sale here…and it makes me sad to look back & think about how much has been lost & that I will soon be taking my leave of this site. I am selling Scimitar, my lovely Bengal male http://www.foopets.com/pet/10589243, to chikita, a Spanish speaking member, so perhaps this is the right day to do that! :) Scimitar is going to have to learn the Spanish for “Get off the furniture, cat!” [Later, June 7: Scimitar now lives with I-Love-Justo-Lamas! His grandfather lives with Gladys (chikita).]
5/13 This is the progress I have made. In the last few days I sold Virtue of Mercury http://www.foopets.com/pet/11408375. [He did not go to the buyer I had chosen] and Embodiment of Song" http://www.foopets.com/pet/11408778 who went to a friend in New Zealand, Cathina232000. A couple days later, I sold her the Erl King http://www.foopets.com/pet/11425883 Song’s son, and Song & Mercury http://www.foopets.com/pet/11408375 (now named Sokar) are breeding again! I sold Ball o’ Fire http://www.foopets.com/pet/11312737 to mrfuzzy , and Haiti http://www.foopets.com/pet/11397768 to SunniDee today, with no troubles. I gave out merchandise to the rest of the requests, and sent all the remaining things on to Helden, where people may get them later, since she is staying longer than I. My page will be a place where Friends can gain rank by caring for my pets, and also read my Journal & shop for things not being currently sold by Foo. Well, it’s after 11 so I must say “Good night!”
5/16 At this time, Graciella http://www.foopets.com/pet/11581495 is reserved for 1Sammi101, and
5/17 Arassabeth-Hale has requested my precious Plum Blossom! Must-love-all-cats has reserved Plum Princess. Now all of my 5/5 new kitties have been reserved!
5/19 NOTE: Because my kits will be weaned on 5/20th instead of today, I extended my membership one month. I’m not happy about doing this after saying “goodbye” to 3/4 of the people on my Friends list, but I would be less happy if all those cats got stuck on the page, so Foo gets another real $5 from me.
5/20 The links to all the kittens & cats went out this afternoon. It seems I’m "rich"again after selling all those cats. I still need one more cat for the St. Patrick’s Day scene, but the 0/5s are much easier to find now that the “zombies” have been resurrected! But why should I worry? The world is supposed to end tomorrow! lol (Later) Well, all those people who were so hot to get my cats haven’t picked them up yet. I guess I will write to them…
5/21 Well, the world hasn’t ended yet, but there are still a few more hours until we are in the clear. (You think I’m joking?? There’s a big billboard up on El Camino Real!) Plum Princess & Thai Beau (Now Lotus) have been picked up by their reservers, now two more to go! [Later] My friend, SunniDee adopted Caden (now called Berry) http://www.foopets.com/pet/8228262 who was Golden Poppy’s first mate!
5/22 Happy Sunday! What a beautiful day it is here in FooLand! (Nor. CA) All my little kitties, real & virtual, want to romp outside and chase one anothers’ tails. The newer cats are getting acquainted with the long time residents and…what’s that? Crunchie is digging a big hole in the flower bed, looking for what? Maybe that soup bone he buried there last Spring? It should be about right for chewing now.
5/30 Memorial Day. As you may notice, all the new little residents of Madam Fu’s will be fully bonded tomorrow! (All are bonded now except for Mother Angelica & Glory.) The kitties are giving every indication that they love all the extra attention. Lace has been meowing for me to redecorate her room in colors more to her liking, so I will be sure to look into that tomorrow. She wants to keep her lovely fishbowl, but would like something less fall-like & with cooler colors—maybe a bit more rich & fanciful. I will have to see what I can do! Charon & Nubia have become good friends, and Little King & my namesake Madam Fu are getting along about as well as can be expected. Madam Fu’s impeccable manner helps the situation very much, otherwise Little King would be very jealous about having to “share his throne!”
6/1 I have been wiping muddy paws today & responding to plaintive cries of “It stopped raining so let meee-owwwwt!” The sky cannot decide what it wants to do; be cloudy or sunny, rain or heat up. My real cat, Rosie has taken up her usual occupation of sitting on hard, crunchy things such as wallets, sunglasses, piles of books and car keys. The brain of a cat is different…
6/6 Ah, spies everywhere! I am back from a wrist slapping by an ambassador who didn’t like me referring to her (unnamed) with what I will call “the g word”…to another member, on that member’s board. Happy, happy, joy joy. They won’t have Madam Fu to push around much longer—or any other adults here it looks like. To other adult women who read this: If you are spending hours here, as I did, to what end? To what benefit? Is it true, as my father once told me, that women tolerate hours of monotonous activity easier than do men? Think.
6/7 Today I did two things: Tracked down some of my pets relatives & some of the pets I raised that are now in the AC. I posted the links on Mother Angelica’s profile page. I also found Kendra1985’s frozen page & began pet care for her dogs & cats.
6/15 I have just been tweaking my scenes a bit today, and I am going to add a green couch to my St. Patrick’s Day scene. Remember when you visit a page (either frozen or live) to look into the Postings & at the Fotos too! Those are important & interesting parts of a profile page. Pet Profiles provide much additional space for pictures & useful information as well in many cases.
6/18 This is very irritating!! I was locked out of my page this morning & had not opened pet care in Preferences! (No I am not teasing you about leaving by renewing month by month.) My intention was to open pet care! My account said that my card would be billed on the 20th & my next allowance date was on the 19th, so go figure! Anyway, Rivet got another $4.99 from me….
6/19 Today my little friend Courtney wanted to buy Nubia from me because they had the same birthday. She provided me with a link to a very good place to buy cats & dogs! (See ‘Nubia II’s’ profile.) So I was able to sell her the cat & get another just the same for the scene. She is now called Birthday Kitty! http://www.foopets.com/pet/11087352
6/24 Well, today management had another “nice little surprise” for us. The maximum number of fgs/sps became a combined 10,000. In other words, we can now earn daily, 1/2 of what we were allowed to get yesterday.
6/28 No, I was wrong about that…it was just a re-phrasing. Now the combined total seems to be 20,000. sigh Helden decided to try it out on her last day, since she had ClubFooPlus, and with that it’s easy to get the points if you keep buying cat food. You can feed them but the payoff stops at 20,000…or in her case, 20,000 plus a few extra points, and then the payoff froze.
6/29 Helden, who got me in the game, allowed her page to freeze today. Now I am looking back to the days we enjoyed doing our sales & I enjoyed breeding my cats for the first time. I saved & saved!
6/30 Well, it’s the last day of June. Just for fun I timed how long it took me to do pet care for my pets & the 3 fostered accounts above…45 min. Then I checked if someone replied to posts, then the hour was over. Actually, in the Library or at home, it is more time consuming to do pet care with Instacare than it is with mobile. The big news is that private user-to-user pet sales are back (with the same old AC prices, unfortunately.) This corrects exactly 1/3 of the problem with pet sales. Sellers will still demand gifts before selling their pets. People still cannot charge the price they want to get for their pets.
7/1 …all the same, I am glad that others won’t have to go through the same horrible situation I had when Virtue of Mercury, my #1 best cat, was grabbed by a “shelter surfer.” (I went over to visit him today & he caught a mouse for me! You can look at his picture.)
7/3 I wonder if the programmers will ever go back & fix the eye shine problem on the Maine Coon? This: When you scratch the head, the eyeshine on the left eye shows through the lid. When you scratch the neck, the eyeshine on the right eye shows through…
7/6 Last week my car battery went dead & I had to have AAA come out to replace it. (I was only one hour late for work so it wasn’t too bad.) Well, now I have a broken telephone connection so I have to call ComCast. Mark is fixing Helden’s computer so we have to use David’s, and I have to call the court during this week every day, because of jury duty (on David’s phone.) And Charlotte is helping me apply for a Medicare plan since I am now 65. I repaired the tiles on the back step, but one tile won’t fit in so I am taking it to a friend who will take a bit off one side. I was Last weekend we put together 6 pieces of patio furniture which looks very nice.
7/7 Today, read this thread http://www.foopets.com/topics/show/2139249?forum_id=29 and the things the ambassadors said about me. One more reason why I’m leaving. Yes, when Foo might stand to profit those ambassadors just jump right in there to make sure they get that virtual or real dough. Recommending common sense isn’t popular around here. If you don’t know that now, you will.
7/13 I wanted to make a note of the peculiar arithmetic of Foo: I fed my pets at 6pm last night, and came on at 8:30am this morning. According to them it’s been 21 hours since they were last fed! lol
7/14 Something I discovered today: You can go to a non-friend’s page, go onto mobile & pet & play with the pets. (It’s better than nothing…PetSam will be feeding them.) I want you to take note of something: This journal & this page is not all there is to Madam Fu. Also look in Postings from this page for much useful information. I’ve left things in there that I wrote in User Assisted that may be of help to you. I will be using the next 3 days to distribute the remainder of my inventory to the people on my Friends list. I am hoping to make it up to level 53 Gold Star before I go!
7/16 Today I cancel my account &—you know how you suck all the goodness out of a Popsicle until it is white?—that’s what I’m doing with this page. I am using up all the remaining stockpiled dog food on Kendra’s dogs, treating my pets with the last 6 flea meds, and buying up as much stuff as I have fds & fgs for & giving you all some additional gifts. Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it to level 53, but that’s okay. All in all, I am satisfied with my accomplishments here & glad to be leaving. You understand that this is now a childrens’ site & that I need to go on to do more important adult things? I am glad I was able to give you some things, backgrounds and other things that you wanted, and that I was able to get all my 5/5 cats into the hands of people who will appreciate them. I hope that Rivet Games will give you a few improvements. I noticed recently that Forum navigation had improved, that is, you can now get to Page 2! And, of course, you may now sell your pets to friends (which was a big, big correction of a big, big mistake!)
7/17 Well… thanks to my trying to use up dog food on Kendra’s dogs it seems I did make it to Level 53 after all! Now I want you to give Madam Fu a big hand and an “A” for effort! (I can’t clap for myself, because now I have stiff fingers! lol) Later: Okay, I’m done now. 13 FooGems & no FooDollars left on the page. 2030 gifts given away. No cat food left. Goodbye all!
Our story has now concluded….
Now, if you have got this far you know that the new entries to this page are at the top! But this is kind of cool—I came on here in 2011 and now I am 1111 days here! (Okay, its idiot’s delight…)
