1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Has anyone got any tips for getting tablets into a cat. My moggy is suffering with her back and I have got to give her tablets for 6 weeks. The first week was fine, I disguised them in dairylea cheese triangles and fed her a couple of plain bits then snuck the tablet into a bit, only she has got wise to it now. I tried crushing them to powder and mixing with the jelly in her food, but she was not impressed with that. I don't want to pin her down and force them in because I fear I may do her back more harm than good.

    Any good tips would be gratefully received :):up: thanks.

    I can't get the little ******* to eat anything with it in, she is very suspect of me. I have crushed one up to mix in with this afternoons food but I expect she will ignore the food, she has a sixth sense

    I don't mean to sound cruel but sometimes one has to be to be kind. I suggest you crush the tab up in her favourite food and then leave her to it....she'll eat before she'll starve.

    Have you tried putting it in the milk ...if that does't work, get some fish oil capsule's, Pearce the capsule, squirt it over the ground up tablet, then mix it with the food ...hope it works for you pet. :up::(

    My old cat was a vicious (she) thug and wouldn't take tablets in any of her food, force was out of the question. Then I found the answer: Covered the tab in MARMITE and she'd wolf it down! Worth a try MOO?

    On a more serious note you can attach the tablet on a long stick, i had a one made from plastic with grooves in ther end where you put the tablet, ask your local vet or pet shop they should be how to get you one TC

    Yey we did try that but the little toad had been a week without eating, we are trying to get her to eat. It resulted in brut force today, Steve held her down while I forced it down her throat. I rewarded her with some cream afterwards. I am now thinking that if I force it down her a few times, she will realise it's easier to take it with some food. :up:

    The sum total now is she looks at Steve with hatred and venom whenever he comes in the room :D:D
