  1. We have always said to all the rescues we don't mind what breed of dog as long as it gets on with cats and gets on with us and we with it. We just wanted to have a companion dog as a kind of therapy for me and my partner to give lots of love and attention to and walks.
  2. Thanks for everyone's input but I think this is not what I started the thread for: an arguement about home checking lol. I suggest Graham that you PM pitnjules instead maybe?
  3. Hi Teeny, Thanks for the helpful advice. We definitely will ring Nigel at helping hands rescue. We have not tried helping hands rescue. The other rescues we tried didn't even allow us to give our information they just assumed we wouldn't be capable. Actually we had forgotten about helping hands rescue but now you mention them we have heard great things about Nigel. Thanks so much. ---------- Post added 04-07-2014 at 11:44 ---------- Hi VWKittie, Well your situation sounds like madness too. Don't blame you for looking for a dog privately in that instance.
  4. Hi, My partner and I have been to several dog rescues in the local area and we find people's attitude towards us quite shocking at times, we have several reasons for them to be prejudiced towards us, my partner is blind etc etc. We have been nothing but polite and we also donate many decent items to dog rescues so we have no idea why they find it a challenge to rehome a dog to us. We have a cat admittedly but even the cat friendly dogs they won't rehome to us. Has anyone had this experience? As I say we are polite and friendly. Even yesterday they showed us a dog that loved us to bits and we did the dog and yet they would not rehome it to us.

Yes Live in / out They live indoors Neutered/spayed No Chipped No Any Current or Historical Health or Psychological Issues.

Very vocal and excitable when food is being given especially cucumber! lol Guinea pigs move very quickly but when caught these are super tame.
  6. Hi Lily, Thanks so much for your very kind offer to put the cage together. During the weekend I did manage to decipher the instructions and we now have a huge cage ready for our very lively bunch of girls. It was really generous of you to offer though. Bet you are an expert. Take care.
  7. Hi We have just bought an Aventura rat cage from littlepetwarehouse and the instructions are not good and the cage is heavy for us to put together. Does anyone know of anyone that would be really good at putting together this type of cage? They would need a lot of previous experience and we will pay £35 plus £10 for the petrol costs. We live in Rotherham nearish to Meadowhall. Thanks for looking
  8. We have Pm,d you WoodhouseGuy. Yes we hope for a happy ending too.
  9. Thanks everyone. We probably will take the ratties if we can get in touch with WoodhouseGuy. Let's hope he is posting right now so we can Pm him lol
  10. Is there any chance we can come and have a look at them? We are very interested.
  11. Hi WoodhouseGuy, Thanks for the nice reply. They do sound lovely. Timid rats can become tame with effort and kindness. My partner would love them if they are just timid and don't bite. We have experience with rats. My partner has had rats for many years.
  12. Yes good point Nikita, people also take rats for snake food when free.
  13. Hi, WoodhouseGuy, Sorry to hear you wish to rehome your ratties. Are they friendly? Do they bite? Do they come with a cage? I think the moderators might suggest you fill out a template on here so you can advertise them on here.
  14. Hi, We are going to the Rotherham show next weekend but wanted to make sure we see the ferret display. Does anyone know if this is on both the Saturday and Sunday and what time? Many thanks
  15. Thanks for the advice Jas but that was not the answer i was looking for lol
  16. Yes that sounds like a brilliant idea. How should we all progress this? Perhaps we could pm each other with ideas etc?
  17. I know what you mean. I have seen this smog too. Very scary at times. Glad that the air quality is being monitored here. Although if its the M1 thats causing it then not alot can be done really.
  18. Hello Rupert in Florida. I live in Rotherham and definitely am part of its population thank you. Who said anything about wantingto delete it from the map? I actuallty care about what happens in Rotherham thats why i started this thread.
  19. Moderators can you please close this thread as clearly noone has anything to say about Rotherham that will help, thank you.
  20. One of the reasons I don't post on this forum is because people are so horrid these days lol
  21. But in those days there was no pollution from the M1. If it is so lovely in Tinsley surely you would be living there now?
  22. It's always the poor areas that these things happen. I used to live n Tinsley also for 2 years. Didn't have asthma until I lived there. One day I could not breathe well enough to walk to the shop. I was fine when living in other parts of Sheffield, like you say.
  23. We recently had a letter from Yorkshire water about the sewage works and problems with the incinerator at Blackburn meadows. We live in Kimberworth and have had to suffer the horrid smell all summer night and day here. Our eyes feel dry and we wake up feeling sck each day and exhausted. We are also coughing. Has anyone else had problems with their health in this part of Rotherham?
