What the......? - Page 2

the vets here do require rabies also.. If I didnt have proof that her rabies was UTD, I would have had to pay another $10 for that.


I got GREAT deal on Gozer when I got her spayed.. one rescue here has some kind of spay/neuter programs for ferals, barn cats, and for if you are taking in a stray.. they were running a special on their package and for $65 she was spayed, leukemia test, all vaccines, including rabies, flea treatment and ear cleaning.

I do also agree with not insulting people who ask... although I dont think anyone here intentionally meant to insult anyone.

Not everyone knows what breeding entails.. they dont always realize there's a right and wrong way.. most just think you put 2 registered purebred animals together and wait for babies!

We all had to learn somewhere.

I also don't think anyone means to insult people but if people do come here and get a bad vibe from the people they are asking for help, they aren't going to ask and so make the same mistakes we all complain about all the time.

Most don't even know they need to be registered or purebred.

As for people not coming back, I have seen time and again they just go to forum after forum until someone (foolishly) gives them the answers they wanted to hear.

Some people only think that registration papers are because the pups/kittens are worth more if they have papers! Ive seen people ask how they can get papers for their unregistered and mixed breed animals because they need to get papers on the offspring!


I have seen people ask about breeding on other forums with the notion of making a profit.. they get mad when they are told there's no profit to be had.. they try to justify that it was an "accidental" breeding, or that they are breeding for family or friends.. ussually the person who gives them the answers they want is another BYB.


I did not read all of the posts here, but Im sure some who are asking are wanting to learn and do things responsibly... they may not be fully aware of how much work and expense it is, nor may they realize that there's no profit to be had, but again, we all learn somewhere.. just be glad they are asking first, before they breed their animals!


Insulting is not the best tactic to use. Often when people are insulted they get this attitude of "Well, I'll just show you and do what I want to do anyways".. unfortunantly, the animals are the only ones who suffer for it.

I don't think I've seen any posts of anyone being insulting

I dont think anyone was intentionally being insulting.. not here anyways.

I have seen other forums where people asked questions and they were given rude answers and automatically called a back yard breeder and told to spay/neuter their "poor quality POS animals" - yes Ive seen people go so far as to tell someone that their pet-quality animal was a POS!


I think one person did get abit insulted tho, as they made a post apologizing for being a "troll".

Well, I'm the one who mentioned trolls, because let's be honest, they show up on TCS. There is a history of it.

Nobody was called out for being one.

no, no one was called out.. but the user evidently thought she was categorized as one of the "trolls" because she was among those who recently posted a breeding question.
