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.

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 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.
http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=44803

If people know of more you can just add them here or PM me.


Thx!

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. 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.

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!
