‘Catspotting’ Is A Facebook Group Where People Share The Best, Unexpected Encounters With Cats (40 Pics)

Published

We’ve introduced you to dogspotting, so it’s only fair we cover catspotting as well. After all, what is our world with just one and not the other?

In its core, the group is a place to post photos and videos when you unexpectedly encounter a cat. “Cats are elusive and have lots of attitudes, so the scenarios you’ll find them in are always really interesting,” Ruby Black, the creator of the Catspotting Facebook group, told Bored Panda.

She started the online community in 2014 and said they’ve had some crazy and weird spots throughout the years, cats in unbelievable situations or beautiful scenery and such. “We encourage members to share a bit of the story with their spot, like the circumstances surrounding how, when, and where,” Black explained.

The more unique or interesting the spot is, the more likely it is to become successful within the group. “Most of our viral posts have been either extraordinarily silly (cats with wild expressions or in really silly places or positions) or really, really unique (one of our most popular posts was a beautiful photo of a cat standing triumphantly on top of a huge sand dune in the middle of the desert),” Black explained.

There is, however, one big difference between Dogspotting and Catspotting groups. The first is public while the second is private — new members can join only after they’re approved by the admins. “Initially, it was set to public but there were lots of people who would try to spam and troll us with photos of dead cats and porn and other gross stuff,” Black explained. “It was easier and [required] less manpower to go private than to keep trying to weed out the trolls all the time.”

After the community dealt with these pathetic individuals, it was able to once again enjoy what it likes best – cats. Black said the members of the group are all pretty much crazy cat people who just love everything about these majestic animals. “In our member requests, we ask people to answer the question ‘What do you love about cats?’ and 99% of answers are ‘Everything!’ and ‘Toe beans!'”

“I never really intended for the group to get this big,” she said. “I created it years ago as just a thing for me and my friends because I kept seeing cute cats and didn’t have [anywhere to share the encounters]. I was a member of Dogspotting but I didn’t really like the way that they did their admin and some of their rules were a bit weird so I figured I would make my own version with cats and it just blew up immediately.” Now, the founder is really proud of how many awesome people are in the group and it makes her really happy to see how it makes so many of them smile, too. “We’ve had heaps of members say that seeing fun spots brightens their day. I love the group a lot.”

My Friend And I Were Out To Get Something And Were Walking To The Station When She Points At This Adorable Cat And Gives Me The “Ugh Fine” Look And I Gave This Floof The Best Pets. She Was Letting Me Scratch Her Belly And Under Her Chin

She was very elegant and very pretty. I think the owners lived nearby since someone was biking by with their daughter and said “look who’s sitting on the stairs, it’s pjuske (fluffy in Danish)”. 10/10 would pet and miss a train for again.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

on

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
