Default Thankful for SpoiledMaltese

As most of you know, we now have our kitten. This morning she was hugging Ollie while grooming him. He was just taking it in stride!!

Anyway, I was in hopes of finding a forum like this for cats. Joined Catforum.com and am amazed at the difference. I was scolded ... yes scolded ... for using color text and changing the text. Just a few minutes ago I posted a text about declawing, etc. Just received a note from the moderator....after she removed my post...to search the forum for "declawing" as they all have discussed this and basically come to the same conclusion! I am a little shocked and am considering withdrawing from the forum.....but not before trying to post why.

So glad we are nothing like that forum!!

LOL I don't mean to laugh but really, this sounds very strict. Stricter than elementary school. They are like the soup Nazi about the colour of the text. At first when I read your post I was interested, I never even thought about looking for a cat forum before, if you find the right one it may be fun.

As for your kitten grooming Ollie, that is adorable, I would love to see a photo of them.

This place isn't just a forum, it's more like a meeting place for friends. Everyone is there for each other through good times and bad times. We are allowed to discuss other things other than just our fluffs. And yes, we are even allowed to change our text colour and style. I love this forum!

I will try to get some pixs of Ollie and Smudge. Usually the cute ones are when they are on my legs and I can't get up to get the camera!!

Wow....that is strict. It sounds so silly for them to do that.

That reminds of Maltese Only...while i have never been a member on that forum i've plenty of previous members that are now on this forum how strict it was. To be scolded for different colored text and asking a question about something that was discussed before and getting scolded for it is crazy. Glad that doesn't happen here.

I joined a forum for Violet and Hardy. I have a different opinion about selling dog's on the forum.I felt a lot of hostility there , it was scary! I'll just stick to SM! Still get to talk about my Yorkies, even though they. 're not Malts...... They don't know that!!! LOL

Oh my, I would not stay in a forum like this. Funny tho because if you really think about it, if you cannot ask a question who has already been discussed and in that discussion all came to the same conclusion, what is going to happen to this forum if they run out of new questions ?

Haha, at least at Maltese Only we could change the text color without being scolded !!

Ouch, I guess I've been lucky so far....
I joined only 2 forums in my life - Cockatiel Cottage years ago and this year I found this wonderful SM forum.
Both were/are very sweet and welcoming with the sweetest members ever.

I'm sorry you had this experience. It's ridiculous how some sites forget they were created to educate and help. Plus people go to forums for entertainment and fun and to talk to other people with similar passions and hobbies, right?

Unfortunately, there is quite a bit of controversy regarding declawing and there are alot of opinions regarding this subject. Perhaps that you were reprimanded or scolded. We have always had Cats in our family and the last three (one is no longer with us) and now own two sisters Toodles and Tiffany. They are both indoor cats and are declawed and are fine. There is so much road kill in our area and we certainly do not want anything to happen to them.
