'supportive' words and the odd bit of advise here and there
Please don't ever feel bad for not being able to give advice,Your supportive posts are
not frivolous at all,just being there for support for someone who may be at their witts end
is very compassionate
....Thank you for being there for people, I know myself sometimes it can
seem like you are on your own in this world.

Maybe I should learn more so I can be of more help.

Guys that would be great if you did that
I just want to say ALL you guys
have warmed my heart because even though you may think you
can't help....You can...... just by checking in there every now and again because there could
always be a new member in desperate help that could post something and it be overlooked
because they may have posted in the wrong forum and there is nobody online to help.
If you see the plight of a cat there is still something you can do like Mybabyphx said you can
send a Pm to someone you think may be able to help(or even multiple pm's to be sure

This is exactly what I mean when I said 'repercussions' although that was the wrong word I used,
I understand about giving the right advice for fear a life is lost because of that advice,I found myself
in a situation a few days ago that I had never come across before and It was a situation I knew that
could have cost kittens lives and I felt sick at the thought of making the 'wrong' decision and thank
god that there were other more experienced advisors online at the time...
A very Big thank you to Gayef and Evinea
I think people just being here and checking whenever you can,Would make a big difference,just
in case an 'emergency' was there for days before they got any advice
