I agree with this, it gives them more attention and they think its good... then do the same to another

I think links to news sites are ok, but places were you can comment and see how many people have viewed shouldn't be allowed.

First of all sorry I'm not a regular poster on here, I do appreciate learning from other hamster owners by reading threads (and looking at the cute pictures!)

I posted a thread on here a while ago with links to an article about rodent farming. It may have been upsetting to some people as there were pictures of animals being kept in tiny cramped cages. The overall reaction was along the lines of 'oh thats horrible lets not think about it'. I was dissapointed as raising awareness of the conditions of animals bred for petshops could result in people buying from breeders instead and avoiding animals from petshops as buying them simply makes room for more and increases demand for farmed babies.

While the posted material upset me, a lot, I wasn't upset with you for posting it. I was glad it had been brought to my attention, but crushed that I saw so much detail. However, now that I am learning more about "behind the scenes" in companion animal breeding, the more am I wondering if one day I can make a difference somehow. But I think that about so many areas in animal welfare, it just makes me very, very sad.

I do appreciate people warning in the thread titles. I can read the first line while I hover over the link and then decide if it is something I should read or not. To be honest, I also avoid reading most of the threads where I think folk might have posted bad news about their pets, as I just can't take bad news and thinking about how sad people must feel.

Even if it doesn't seem that we are being aware infact thread like that are very helpful!
Even if its not said out loud, many people after reading that will look to breeders instead of pet shops or look for a responisble pet shop that doesn't get their stock from rodent farms.
Including people who aren't members of the forum or are only lurkers.

I know i didn't know about it until i read thread like that, and i'm now much more careful about where my pets are from!

So i think i might be one the first to say, actually thankyou for posting it
Just don't make it a regular thing

I think that adding warning to the title is a great idea because then people can choose if they wish to read it.

I was just wondering whether I shoud've put a warning infront of titles that are when my ham has passed on and I'm telling you all here? I didn't think but now I do, I know its upsetting to read about it. Or do you think its ok because its in the memorial section ?
