I have noticed a trend on many pet forums. On most, there are a select group of fanatics who rule the roost. If you have differing views, you are a horrible person who abuses your pets. On rat/mouse forums, if you feed Kaytee or have a small cage, you might as well just torture your pets. On dog forums, *gasp* you feed purina/ol' roy/pedigree/ect. How could you! Your poor dog is going to die at any second!
But then... if for example I posted a "what do you feed your dog" on a mouse forum, they almost all feed crappy foods. On a dog/horse/cat forum, most know nothing about basic rodent care for their own pets!
On a dog/cat forum, awwwwww, look at the baby mice, what nice pretty cedar bedding!" On a mouse forum... "what adorable puppies/kittens, who cares they are being taken from their mother too young" But if you post a breeding add for mice on a mouse forum, all hell breaks loose, same as for breeding a dog/horse on a dog/horse forum.
Why can't people try to give above average care for ALL their pets, rather then give then obsess over the BEST of everything for ONE pet.
Rant over. And yes, I know this doesn't apply to everyone, just most.
