It is with deep regret that I have had to discontinue The Global Cat and its cat show calendars. This is not being done willingly on my part. Instead, it is a result of the changes that WordPress has made to its platform — none of which were either needed or required. As things stand, WordPress is broken and impossible to use. I do not have the time or the patience to try to learn WordPress all over again, and what should be a straightforward task to create Web pages is instead a convoluted and frustrating mess. I am done fighting with WordPress.
