Can we no longer respond to rehoming threads?

PM'ing people doesn't always work as new members do not always see PM's or know where they are.

The short answer is....no

The PM button is clearly visable; I would like to think that after completing the registration process navigating a forum such as this should pose no problem at all. Newly registered members will have the ability to PM once they have been approved.

Email addresses are not automatically shown for privacy reasons, although the sticky in the rehoming section clearly requests that contact details are to be added by the OP, whether or not they decide to add email address/phone number is their own decision.

There's also a direct email link to the Administrator for anyone experiencing issues.

Ok... i just wanted to suggest a few photos on a couple of the posts.

And the latest one does not exist anymore on the link provided so i wanted to ask for more information as they implied that the cat would be put to sleep... i thought this didn't happen much in the UK especially with a pedigree breed rescue.

I'll try and PM them then.



Plus there are occasions when somebody posts information that is incorrect like the owner who said that a Snow bengal should not be kept if you have a small baby due to the Siamese in their blood as Siamese are known to hurt babies. That is dangerous information that should be corrected.

I do understand that it can become difficult allowing posts but this can be just as dangerous.

Just wanted to tag in and say that i strongly agree with Lollo on this point. While i can completely understand that sometimes the rehoming thread results in some less than supportive responses, surely it would be better for that part of the forum to be strongly moderated rather than completely shut off? Thus stopping any information such as the point about Siamese being dangerous for babies worrying anyone who should stumble across it?

I posted in the rehoming section recently and notice that there isn't even any kind of message to inform you that people won't be able to reply to your post and can only PM, perhaps this would be an idea? I only mention it as i often don't actualy login to the site unless i am going to write a post as you can still view the whole forum. I often browse the site this way to see if i have received any replies rather than logging in and and therefore without knowing i will only receive PMs, may go quite a while without knowing that someone has responded. I doubt i am the only one who uses the site this way so people should be made aware of this?
