I googled, this page gives a link to have your account fixed.

https://www.facebook.com/help/185747581553788/

I also found this:

"All you have to do is send an email to disabled@facebook.com inquiring about the reason that they disabled your account for (usually it’s a hater reporting your profile to be in violation of the EULA of Facebook) and explain your willingness to remove the violating content and if it was just a “clerical error” to reactivate your account.

Other accounts to “CC” in your email:

info@fb.com
appeals@fb.com
That usually does the job of getting your account back within a period of 2-5 days, depending on whether you actually had a violation or not, doesn’t that sound more like a country’s court system than a websites usage violation?


Most common reasons for Account disabling?

Porn
Showing too much cleavage if you are a women but men can almost get away with anything — love the commitment to the status quo of society!
Adding too many friends, too quickly, getting a warning for it and ignoring it.
Spamming
You didn’t use your real name that is on your birth certificate!
Browsing too much of Facebook too often, mostly due to apps like Snap2Face and others like it.
and many many more!"
fromt his page:

course there's nothing stopping you from just making another account...

Well I put in to see why it was deleted. Little catniss is adorable but she stunk terribly when I got her home. I have her an entire bath so she's now chilly under the blanket purring away (very loving). Bob's old diapers fit her perfect although she doesn't need a tail hole either so that's a negative. She's a long hair black or dark smoke colored kitten who is about 4 months they said. They apparently had all grown attached to her and were ecstatic to see her go to a real home. She's doing well even though the entire house is in a love on mom frenzy at the moment.. brats lol. She is different than bob as she actually leaks pee but no biggie. I am going to have to have her little rear shaved because there was stuff stuck in it. I believe she will fit in perfect and Merlin my door greeter lol wants to be her bestie already. O, so how often do u change, wash, and express the ones that release pee typically? I would assume 3 to 4 like bob, and wash once a day at least and wipes in between if possible? Want to start off on the right foot.

If you can express her three or four times a day that would be awesome. I generally express them twice a day. Longhair is more challenging. The fur holds the urine, so keeping her hind end clipped is going to be necessary. Cherry is a medium hair and while I was sick her fur got long, and I couldn't bathe her often enough...thus the trouble we're having now.
A lot of rescues just don't have the resources in people and time to keep these guys really clean. When butterbean was at a shelter in Florida there was one volunteer who was caring for him, but she wasn't there every day. She'd come in to find his diaper unchanged for two days. ugh. Even a rescue that isn't a county shelter has limited time for everyone. I'm glad you have her :)
the rest of the gang is bound to get jealous, I try to give out extra treats, get some new toys (thank u dollar tree). Great that bob's old diapers fit her! I have a bunch of premie onesies I don't need, and actually never ended up using because Hopper grew out of them quickly. I like them because they are slim, whereas most of the onesies are made for fat babies so they hang off the kitten. If you'd like some, I can send some.

we need picts of the new gal :)

O my that's terrible! I wonder if that was the rescue she was going to, as they said she was going to Florida. I know they want to try and help and can't help everyone but not changing the baby for 2 days is just asking for death from health issues! I'm going to take a few pics here in a minute as she is finally almost dry and the others have lost interest for a bit. I couldn't get Bob's to upload before so I'll see if I can get both of them to. I will definitely get them done new toys. I try and limit the treats as Merlin and moo are both a bit chubby and with them eating kitten food I figure it's for the best to stay away. We will be doing 3 times a day for sure as that's Bob's usual schedule. I didn't really realize there were medium hair cats, that's probably more her then (hopefully as she is still very young). I haven't had a fluffy kitty since I was like 10, kinda excited lol. I'm going to send this and send pics in a separate post

Open the pictures using some photo editor and shrink them, then do a "save as" and save it under a different name, that way you keep the original. .jpg is usually the best for memory if you can change the file type.

cat coats come in all lengths. It takes a longhair cat two years to really come into their full coat, if she is really fluffy now next year she shoudl be spectacular :)

Butterbean was at a county shelter, not really a rescue. He was a mess with scald and infection when he arrived poor guy.

Awe poor little baby. So glad u saved him from all that. They said they were going to euthanize her like they did her 2 other siblings who were born apparently without rectums.. they said the entire litter had defects. Poor little girl almost got it bcz she can't hold it. How sad. The lady said she knew she would never get adopted and that some ppl looked at her but always said no after a bit. To me it isn't that hard now, I was stressed for the first couple months all the time. She should be way easier being that I have experience now. She finally doesn't smell like a thousand pounds of urine and is dry except her butt partially. I'll have to edit photos tomorrow and post. Wow, if she keeps getting more furry over the next 2 years she's going to have a mound of hair! I found a groomer that did Bob's butt for $3 (I have her 10) so perhaps she will do them both for 10 or so. Looking into that tomorrow asap

I think it was my mom read somewhere u could use that but we thought it would burn so I never did. I never thought a out trying to do things like that to make vet money, I most certainly will be starting. I have a Facebook that I me we use, I'll add u and use it if it helps him. I am also thinking about fostering a kitten who is incontinent as well until I can find him a home. The diapers we use are fancy pants for pets. A lady makes them and sells them and they r reusable. I had changed the cat food and actually the dog food as well (sometimes all the cats eat it too so u never know) that's when he started pooping actual poop balls on his own and caused the whole mess. The poop is good, the rash is bad. I changed to dawn dish soap original for washing him per the vet. It was gone when I was using it still so I doubt that would be it. His anus was all beat red and cracked bleeding in spots. It got to where he would scream (he has a terrible scream like his mom) and shake when I would even take him to the bathroom. He stopped that since it went away before but it came back and u can tell when it really hurts him. I change and express him 2 to 3 times after work and once in the morning when I get up to leave. I try to use paper towels soaked in dawn and water to clean him (I cut strips and put them in a baby wipe container. I had him in dollar General disposable diapers for a bit but it made no difference. I left his diaper off for 2 days and it didn't help (went back on when he woke me up loving at 3 am and hopped on the pillow and pooped). It's healed for the most part again now but he also just had a shot yesterday or the day before of cortisone which is a miracle drug for it apparently. I just got home from work so I used the peroxide to clean him to see if that does anything because he does have dead skin in places. I am putting them on blue buffalo kitten food now because better food is less poop (killing the pockets a bit but they r worth it). In all honesty I would rather change and express bob over cleaning the others litter box any day lol. If I get this diaper rash under control for good then me and him have it easy. I like I get to take him places (he is extremely mellow mannered) with only a leash and i never have to worry. He goes to the stores all the time and to visit my mom sometimes.
I haven't read everything, but I absolutely would NOT use Dawn on his rash; it's terribly stripping of natural skin oils. Unless somebody is terribly messy, I seldom use shampoo at all. If I do, I use cheap, mild shampoo, and only about a teaspoonful in the bath water, then rinse well. Have you considered using shaving his butt and using Cavilon spray? It should last a couple of days, at least, between applications.

I haven't heard of calvion spray. I do have his butt shaved though. As of yesterday I have a new baby as well. His rash is gone still and I started using bag balm on it. Seems to be working well. I'm actually making a list of things that people say to try. I have to go today and get both bob and catniss a booty shave (especially her since she has long hair). I use the dawn bcz that's what one of the vets said I should use. He gets a ring of poo and it won't come off with just water. I am hoping little catniss doesn't get one especially since she was just running around covered in pee before. Poor baby finally got her to smell good this morning. I expressed what she had left (so much easier than bob who I feel like i am killing. She was barely wet yay

I use the oatmeal pet shampoo from Dollar General :) it's $3 a bottle and sometimes on sale for $2.50, I have also gotten pet shampoo from Dollar Tree although I don't like that as much.
Tropiclean makes an excellent shampoo, but it's pricey. I definitley need some kind of shampoo for Bean and Cherry.

Glad you got the new girl smelling good :) :)

I won't use pet shampoo on anyone. They add extra chemicals to it. I either use baby shampoo or I really like this body wash that's called black soap and it comes in a pretty big bottle for the dogs. It smells like a hippy but it's better than dog lol. If I find a better one I'll let u know but baby shampoo I always thought was better since it is made to not be as harsh (and who doesn't like the smell of babies!). Taking kitty catniss to my vet today just for a meet and greet visit bcz it is free. She has I think scabs on her that r prolly from the other cat she was in with so going to have them looked at as well. Poor baby had a tough time with her diapers for a few hrs and I felt bad. Did not feel nearly as bad once I got home and changed her to find a ton of pee I saved my car from. I had to verify my identity with Facebook so I'm waiting once again on them. I can't wait to get home and see what kind of present I have to clean up from her lol. I shut her in my room so the big cats would leave her alone and gave her food and water. Figure a box would just be a tease since she is in diapers... should I try and take her? They said sometimes she used it, but they said most of the time she just made big puddles on the floor. Poor girl!

i don't bother with litterboxes for my diaper kids, Cherry acts like soemtimes she knows she is going but not often enough. Hopper I just squeeze out a couple times a day and I clean up small accidents. i also have puppy pads all over on her favorite spots. She seems to scald far more easily than anyone so I don't like to diaper her much.
I use a portable pet playpen for butterbean when I can't watch him . He has some bad aggression issues so he cannot have unsupervised time out. You can find them on Amazon fairly inexpensively. I have washable pee pads (the kinds for people) I put in the bottom, then a bed and soemthing for him to chompie on. Bean has to chompie things, just preferably inanimate things.

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss ... et+playpen


I had to verify myself with Facebook, they didn't believe my name was real. I sent them copies of 10 different forms of ID every day until they fixed it.
they can be a real pain in the rear, but they've been great for networking with animal people so I deal, and it's free.

O, that explains y I have gotten the same message twice now about verifying. Ugh, I'll keep sending. Little butterbean sounds like quite the character lol. Lucky for me everyone gets along fairly well except moo and mama sometimes but moo is just weird and all the cats and dogs irritate mama kitty (They want her to play). So not happy with that vet by the way. Took catniss for a free visit at my expensive vet and she has TERRIBLE ear mites! Her little neck has scabs they said from all the scratching, and they said she needs lots more water bcz her pee is very concentrated. She's now on an antibiotic for the neck and they put revolution on her and said to keep cleaning her ears out. How could that happen from a vet!? Covered in urine from an incontinent kitten is one thing, all the other things is another. They didn't even bother to shave her butt, it had matts and poo stuck in it. I had both of them shaved today. My poor little girl.
