* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

The red eyed cat
« on: August 04, 2014, 01:20:41 am »
So here’s a little story I want to tell…it’s very interesting and I still to this day don’t know the meaning…..

I was sitting outside one day, when I lived in Kansas. I think key was at work or something. I was just sitting and thinking, about what I don’t remember. This black cat walks up to me, and to my horror, it the cats eyes were red and looked as though the retinas were burned out of them, but yet, it acted as though it could still see, it showed no signs of being in pain, in fact it rubbed on me a few times lovingly. Then it walked off, again, showing signs it could see, and see well. Showing no sign of pain or anything, it seemed rather comfortable.

The very next day I went outside, I saw the same exact cat, it came up to me again, rubbed on me I petted it. It was the most peculiar thing though, it’s eyes were normal. It walked off yet again.

I am still baffled by this whole thing, maybe someone else knows what it could mean. :confused:

Did anything else seem odd about the cat? I would suspect it was perfectly ordinary, but perhaps had some sort of congenital malformation of its eyes. Cats are good at hiding their weaknesses and compensating for them. If it couldn't see well, you probably wouldn't have been able to tell. Cats have excellent hearing and smell, too.

Sorry. Missed this bit. I'd suggest that this may have simply been a different cat, perhaps the first one's littermate. People often adopt littermates together so they won't be lonely.

IT WAS THE DEMON KITTY FROM HELL.

In all seriousness, I'd go with RedFaery on this one. I try to eliminate the mundane before I jump to magical.

I'd just like to point out that most cats won't approach strangers, and this may have in fact been a sign that it was in distress. Cats don't show pain in the same way as dogs do. In my experience a cat that's in pain might become quiet and withdrawn, but it is just as likely to suddenly become extremely affectionate and demanding. In general, though, they don't whine or cry until they are absolutely in a great deal of pain and likely also in pretty bad shape, which is why most cat owners learn to keep an eye on their cat's moods and whisk them off to the vet at the first sign of behavior that's "not right."
