Post Content - General
This is a family friendly forum, so please do not use any explicit or obscene language, graphics or behaviour, or post links to other sites of that nature. Purrs'n'Whiskers is primarily for Cat content, although we do also have a general chat and off-topic section.  Any posts that are deemed off-topic will be moved as appropriate. Please do not post the same message more than once or on many forum sections, as reposting the same message repeatedly can be interpreted as spam.

Post Content - Upsetting Images/Posts
The Purrs'n'Whiskers forum provides an uplifting venue for cat enthusiasts. We totally understand if a member is on a crusade to stamp out cruelty and we absolutely abhor cruelty to all animals (not just cats), but there are many other animal forums available where these issues can be openly debated - Purrs'n'Whiskers is not such a forum. Posts containing text and images of a disturbing and upsetting nature will be removed. Please respect our rules before you post.

Sale of Pets
Purrs'n'Whiskers does not allow the sale of pets through its forum, either via posts, forum email, or personal messages. Carrying out this activity could result in the loss of your membership.
