  • Wanted Ad pictures

    Scrolling through the wanted ads, I see a picture of my cat. On someone else’s classified. Now I’ve probably posted said picture in a forum post at some point, and someone may have taken a shine to the picture and saved it for a rainy day, but that seems a bit far fetched. So how are wanted ad pictures generated? Am I just seeing some randomly generated photo based on some cookie browser nonsense? WTF is going on?

    WTD ad pictures, as they are mandatory, appear to have developed a trend of being totally random pictures unrelated to the WTD request, to make them stand out from the usual ‘for sale’ lot.

    I quite like it 🙂

    Have you checked on your cat recently, might be a good idea.

    You say ‘your’ cat? You know that there are 3 million cats in the UK, yet 15 million people think they own a cat?

    OK, the cat that mostly lives in my house 😄

    Binners, no one who has a cat live with them uses the word ‘own’
    You own a dog. You feed a cat.

    Why does somebody want your cat?

    Maybe they have a mouse problem? But he’s not very good at catching them these days, what with being 19 and generally sleeping lots.

    Me too, it’s literally the only good thing about the “new classifieds”.

    Tell me about it. We have two that we feed. One of them always comes in smelling like he’s been sat in front of a coal fire. We don’t have a coal fire

    We did have 3, but we went on holiday and when we got back, he’d moved in 5 doors down. Never been back. He occasionally glares at me through the front window when I walk past
