I just recently found this site but to me it seems great as it is although I do think a behavior section specifically for cats is a great idea.

More smilies are a definite MUST!!! I am administrator on a message board (not pet related though many of us are pet lovers so we have a section for it). Here are some of the smilies we have:

Plus a ton more. Just makes things more fun. We probably have about 70 now and I rotate in seasonal ones based on the holidays and such.

Horror Stories
 
I would like to suggest a horror story site..... the day I picked up my Bichon from rescue was a nightmare..... I brought him home, showed him the house, took him for a walk, he got spooked by someone walking past us, jumped, snapped his collar and ran into a crowded street.... I spent 30 minutes trying to get him to safety... believe it or not the only thing that saved him, was that I found an empty water bottle laying on the sidewalk and used it as a toy to get his attention. When I finally got him home, I opened up his crate, (which he is supposed to like right?) turns out, he did not have good crate memories and he cowered and cried for about an hour. I don't know anything about dogs, he's my first, so I went with my gut. Picked him up, layed down in bed with him til he calmed down and he has been my shadow ever since.

I agree, more smiley's would be very useful.

heidiho January 5th, 2007 06:43 PM

A whole new batch of icons,these are cool but we need new ones for sure

In order to keep the size of the reply page at a reasonable size, we do limit smilies - right now to 40.

That said....a few new smilies ARE coming....maybe as early as next week.

I think that's a good idea.. There are a lot of cat behavior questions.:shrug:

a handy list of things to take/write down to your vet if your pet is sick. stool sample, type of food... any diet changes.... have a chance for someoen to sit down and see the list of questions a vet will normally ask you about if your pet is sick BEFORE you have to go to the vet??

I think that's a great idea ash! If any members want to start it off, we could easily make it a sticky.

Thanks!

Hey thanks ashley! There was a post somewhere on acronyms...I'll have to hunt it down.

BSL - breed specific legislation

I just found some acronyms and made a new sticky in the 15 common questions forum.

When you finish writing your reply just click on the ABC icon top right of the frame, it will correct any errors you have made

:lightbulb: Well then, there you have it.:wall:
Thanks Lukka'sma :o:)

I agree that IM would be great. It would also be nice if the dog and cat section for the general questions was seperated. I realize I'm new to the site, so I'm still trying to figure out where everything is and how it works.:sorry: I do like the site it just seems like it would be easier to find general info if those two categories were sepersted. Thanks for the site.

When it comes to HEALTH issues the forum IS separated for cats.

That was copied from the forum's main page where it shows the sub-forum for cat health issues.

It would be nice to have an "other" animal section or even a livestock section. I haven't seen anything for horses, and they are my most beloved pets of all!

Shazanne April 25th, 2017 08:53 PM

Is this section redundant??
 
This section of the site appears to have become redundant and its such a shame! There were some very good suggestions here.
I particularly like the idea of a Chat Room - instant interaction is what people are used to now! I would love to join chat rooms on a host of issues - can the idea be revisited????
