Terms and Conditions

 
 

The Legalities are definitely Not One of my favorite things...

However, it is an important prerequisite mandated by law to protect both you and me. (Though that reality is comforting on a certain level, it still did not make the three days of research and re-writes any more fun.) C’est la vie! Please take a moment to read through my Terms and Conditions of Use for Whiskers on Kittens. (I apologize for the amount of subsequent legal jargon, but I have, as yet, been unable to master a conversational tone while enumerating the various legal vagaries I am bound to and covered by.)

Thank you...

for visiting my blog and actually reading through these Terms and Conditions (as it really was a labor intensive process to write them, more so than with my blog posts, which while labor intensive, have never actually made me want to pull my teeth out). Please be advised that the rest of Whiskers on Kittens is more bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens than legalistic tedium. I hope you enjoy your time exploring the blog!
