    People Annoy Me.

    LY&Pigs, do you have to be so negative? She is obv concered/annoyed about it, which is why she is posting here. Hopefully someone will read this and think ''oh, that ball I bought isn't ok for my pig then, I'll take it back to the shop and buy a nice new igloo or something instead''. Maybe she...

    Comment by 'wonderwhiskers' in media 'Siiri's "cage"'

    Erm Georgielolalove ..people have kept APH's for years and years. They WOULD'NT live in the wild .. and aren't even a wild species ..they are a hybrid. So don't talk **** about things you nothing of. Ignorance isn't desirable.

    In my OPINION you have been dismissive. You have taken what I have said OUT OF CONTEXT. You have chosen a small sentence, and ignore what came after it, explaining what I meant by it. That, in my books, is dismissive. You have been patronising '' Maybe one day you'll see .. '' That is...

    I don't agree that 'boycotting cats and dogs' has worked. Its worked to get the cats and dogs out of petshops, but then what? It's alot better for the animal of course, but the RSPCA has recently released stats which show that the overpopulation rates here in the UK of cats and dogs has been...

    Like said in the little thing at the top, 'Be respectful'. Being dismissive and narrow minded, patronising and hypocritical is not respectful in my books. But maybe that's just how I was bought up?

    It hasn't offended me, I'm just pointing out the facts. She was rude. And being a Mod, being rude does'nt exactly set a good precedent does it? As for spelling and grammer ..I don't have a spell check, it is 23:56, and I am rushing this and am also writing a reference, so I apologise for the...

    To be honest, I think you were more then a little rude then .. you were dismissive and narrow minded. At the end of the day, we all want the same thing ..to stop petshops and for animals to be looked after the best way possible. Whats wrong with the fact that I am open to more then one way...

    I simply said what you said to me. I understand everything you said. I saw every point you made,but I think your being very narrow minded. If you don't mind me saying, I also thought it was disrespectful to say 'your missing my point' and 'maybe some day you'll be misfortunate enough to see...

    I did'nt assume that all you did was come here. Not at all. I have of course looked at the Cavy Spirit site, and looked at everything on that. I've read everything I can on this site, and I know that alot of members do alot. Did you assume that all I do is come on here? I'm part of a debate...

    I'm glad cats and dogs are no longer sold in the major chain pet shops. I really do understand what your saying - everyone should just not use petshops that sell live animals. In an ideal world, this would be great. Nothing would make me happier. But in reality .. average joe is too lazy to...

    There is still just as much overpopulation of cats and dogs as there was years ago. In fact, the RSPCA just releasted statistics showing there has been an INCREASE in the amount of cats and dogs abandoned or signed over to rescues, most likely because of the credit crunch.

    Selling cats and dogs in petshops over here is illegal. It's not done, and if it was, not only would the law stop it, people would be outraged. We are as a whole nation, animals lovers. I do not support petshops. I have already said this. Looking at the bigger picture .. things have to...

    Paula, You are missing the point I'm trying to make. I'm not naive enough to think that what goes on behind closed pet shop doors is all happy and fluffy animal fun. But if you read my posts, you'll see that what I'm talking about is the petshops in England. The ones I've personally seen...

    I disagree. I have seen so many people be turned down from wanting to buy a pet. Perhaps it is just the area I live in, but it was not an isolated incident. As for your second point, I agree that animals should'nt be treated as 'merchandise' that can be easily disposed of ..but the fact of...

    Well no, as I said in a past post .. they're animals are all taken in and 'sold' .. the rescues around here are very limited. So many small animals get turned away ..this petshop takes them, and unwanted babies in, therefor they are not creating lives ..just trying to protect lives caused by...

    The before anyone says anything is just a throw-away comment. I did'nt mean anything by it, and it was'nt directed at anyone. Although I was somewhat standing up for the petshops ..its because although I have never agreed with them ..I did'nt realise how actaully decent they are over here in...
