Thankful Thursday Graphic at Dash Kitten

Instagram Vs Dash Kitten

Instagram Vs. Dash Kitten – is this a headline?

We have a growing tribe on Instagram but if you have tried to get to our fun account over the past few days – don’t bother. According to Instagram we have been hacked and they do not believe that we are who we say we are. We celebrate our buddies and the support we are getting, and join Brian and friends on Thankful Thursday.

They (politely) asked Mum – Marjorie Dawson for a picture of her to prove the account is ours. What they do not realise is that the account is all about kitties and, as such, has no human pictures in at all.  Our images are often copyrighted with

Instagram Vs Dash Kitten So Far

Points we respectfully made to Instagram :-

  • We have given Instagram a copy of our wonderful Glogirly designed log as proof positive the account is ours – better than the photograph of a non-appearing Marjorie on the Instagram feed 😉
  • We have sent them the requested picture (not flattering but true to life) of Mum with the number they requested of her holding in the picture and relevant details.
  • We know the staff are only doing their job, but it is not easy to remain optimistic and respectful when a major company doesn’t seem to listen to a cat blog that prides itself on its standards and integrity.

  1. Hi there! I know we have talked via DM, but I am behind you on this. You are doing everything right. I am thinking that tweeting may not help as much since they are Instagram based, but the more attention you can get the better. What is the latest today?

  2. I tweeted and I’m so sorry this happened to you!! Who in the world would hack an Instagram account about animals. I hope this gets resolved for you.

  3. How frustrating! I would be upset too. Could they possibly verify your account with your phone number or other phone details? Hacking is a huge pain. My blog got hacked back in 2014 and it took a lot of work to get it all fixed.

  4. Technology is definitely not without hitches. That is very frustrating. We follow/followed you and will continue to do so – bugs (fleas) and all!

  5. Oh for Heaven’s sake! If only our government were so diligent about THEIR hacking as InstaG apparently is about theirs, LOL! I sure hope this gets resolved soon – I tweeted both tweets for you. Happy weekend, let’s hope IG fixes your issue soon before the hackers use your kitty photos to blow up the earth, BOL!!!!
    Love & Biscuits,
    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

  6. Ugh, I’m so sorry! That’s such a pain! I’ve retweeted both tweets — I hope everything resolves itself. We miss you! Can you do a human/kitty photo comment to prove it?

  7. We only found the your account, no Dash Kitten 🙁 Hope the problem will be solved very soon. Unfortunately we don’t have twitter, but if we can do something on IG, please let us know! Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂 <3

  8. sorree guyz yur havin a time of it…..another reezon we stix ta just bloggin

    hope thiz all getz sorted out soon ~~~~~insert hearts


  9. I had a similar thing happen yet with the U.S. Post office. I mailed a letter using my pen name at the time to a purrticular celebrity and had used my return address of my home, thinking if it came back – no big deal. Well the package was too big for my mailbox and I wasn’t home when return came. I had to pick up the returned mail from the post office and prove I was the same person as my previous pen name. Thankfully there was one blogging post with my photo in it – I printed it up and showed it to the post office along with my driver’s license.

    Have no idea what I would have done to prove who I was otherwise. All my “post office” friends who recognized me were at a different branch where my P. O. Box is located… I am not on Instagram, but may get an account just to help verify you!! Purrz from Katie Kat.

  10. Dang, that is just dumb of them. Maybe we need to start calling them SlowGram cause they sure aren’t instant in getting this resolved. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  11. I’d be tempted to send them a picture of the number pattern in the litter box. Or a gazillion pictures of your cats. No one else would have that many pictures of the same cat(s). A business card? Either way, they really need to come up with a better plan for bloggers like us or fictional characters.

  12. That is a horrible experience to go through. We’ll go over and RT for you – hope it helps. Hope everything gets straightened out for you soon. Now I’m not so sure I want to get on Instagram!!!!
