Update: March 23, 2017:

 According to Gizmodo the kitten site appears to be a troll.


Imagine you’re a teenager and you’re trying to hone your coding skills, so you create a site where kittens are allowed to scratch Donald Trump. Then you receive a cease-and-desist letter from Trump’s attorneys telling you to shut down your site. Well, that’s exactly what happened to Lucy, a 17-year-old from San Francisco.


Lucy created the site TrumpScratch, which is everything like the screenshot above. It allows you to use a cat to attack Trump. Seems like harmless fun, right? Well, not according to Trump.

Lucy received the cease-and-desist letter from Trump’s attorneys, but she says that she can’t believe a coding experiment has the president all in his feelings.


“I was going to just let this go, but I think it’s, pardon my French, fucking outrageous that the president of the United States has his team scouring the internet for sites like mine to send out cease-and-desists and legal-action claims if we don’t shut down,” Lucy told Observer. “Meanwhile, he tweets about The Apprentice ratings and sends out power-drunk tweets about phone tapping. HOW ABOUT BEING THE PRESIDENT?”

After receiving the letter, Lucy decided to change the site’s name to KittenFeed, and I personally have spent about 10 minutes this morning punching Trump’s face. Apparently, changing the name hasn’t been enough, and Trump’s goons are still coming after her.

“It’s so sad that his administration is focused more on being liked, burying real news and taking down sites like mine as they supposedly make him look bad,” Lucy said.

I implore everyone to take a few minutes out of their day to kitten-punch Trump in the face.

Bye, Kinja! It's been fun (occasionally).
