Ok, I tried to get a response from Mods and owners on this idea in the Board Forum but so far only the members have weighed in. In a positive way I
I really think that a Pets/Animals forum will do well on ATS and I will post the exact OP here so those members that don't frequent the Board Forum
can have their say:
Just noticed another animal thread and there are tons of them on ATS. Why not a type of animal Forum? Could be used as anything from Rover's new
home to those nasty little cat vids .
I can see it used as the posting place for the animal cruelty threads as well. Many members have pets and they are as close to us as family
members...closer sometimes. Fido and Mr. Whiskers just don't belong in crypto or chit chat threads IMO. Just a thought.
And a great reply from member JohnPhoenix:
Ya know.. conspiracy wise there are many issues that do deal with animals like Cats. For instance, their foods are as bad for them as our GMO,
additive, preservative laden foods.
For example there are issues of dry VS moist foods causing teeth to fall out and other health problems. (dry foods keep cats teeth healthier longer
because the cats are always cleaning the teeth as they chew) and many popular cat forums ignore this and promote moist foods - mostly processed foods
not foods like the foods they find in nature.
Those companies are just as dishonest and greedy as is Monsanto. I can see ATS members discussing these issues, perhaps more intelligently than they
do on most pet forums. So, Yes, I do think there could be a pet/animal forum that would have merit and it wouldn't have to be just a place to post
gazillions of pictures.
SPCA, cruelty, rescues etc. Our lives are surrounded by these issues and so much of it gets lost here on ATS in a number of different forums that one
place would be a definite plus IMO.
I really believe a forum such as this could consolidate the animal threads and give more of a focus on where to post.
Just putting it out there.
Oh I almost forgot to add the required
here. Thanks to Regenstorm:
