Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You�re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the Forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it�details of personal disputes may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it�s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users� profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses � Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it�s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who�s selling it, it doesn�t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions � Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services � Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products � While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements � Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be �bumped� excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues � Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators� discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the �alert� button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your �Ignore� list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you�d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user�s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

    4 y.o. kitty died suddenly this afternoon

    he was sleeping and purring in my bed this morning.

    I came home from work this aft and thought he was curled up, sleeping on the sofa
    when I sat besides him and touched him .... OMG
    he was perfectly healthy this morning
    I don't know what happened
    my only comfort is that he died safe and warm and looking peaceful

    he was one of a litter that was born outside to a feral/homeless kitty that I was feeding.
    over the course of a year or two I caught and TNRd them all
    some decided that life inside was good

    he was the sweetest, nicest cat with big bright green glowing eyes. he made friends with every other cat and they all loved him

    I can't stop crying

    So sorry about your kitty. I had one that I lost in a similar manner. She was 5. Had a necropsy done and it turned out to be Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. 4 years later I lost her brother (littermate) to the same thing.

    So sorry about the loss of your sweet little boy. But he died peacefully (probably never knew what hit him) and in a loving home.

    Now go help those two newbies!

    I used to swear that the cats that passed thru my area had marked my fence with signs similar to those the hoboes would leave behind. Mine said "Fool will feed you here." lol

    FWIW, I did necropsy my TNR cat that died and it was confirmed HCM. I was in the barn when it happened...I heard her fall in the crate, saw something was wrong, and in what was probably less than 60 seconds it took me to get the carrier from the house, she was gone. It is VERY quick. If it helps at all, it seemed like a pretty peaceful way to go.


    It's just not easy, but I felt better knowing she didn't suffer.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. My neighbor lost hers in a similar way, she was fine in the morning and gone when she came home from work.

    Big hugs for you!!

    I'm so sorry! Sounds like you gave him the best life though. I lost a 4 yo cat to an aggressive sarcoma and it was horrible. Now dealing with kidney failure in a 3 yo cat. It's never easy but particularly heartbreaking when they are young. The ones you lose early always seem to be the most affectionate. I wonder if they know.

    So sorry, lots of hugs. Same thing happened to my sister's four year old cat (I own his brother), a few weeks back. She said he was fine in the AM, but her hubby came home and he was gone.

    Jingles. Vets said it was likely HCM for Winston. She did not opt for a necropsy, but took her other cat to the vet to make sure it wasn't anything like poison.

    Major (((hugs)))

    so very sorry for you. You gave him the best life possible for as long as possible.

    I used to swear there was a " wild animals welcome" sign at my place. but I never could find it.

    thank you all
    it has been a tough couple days
    i buried him yesterday

    homeless/feral kitties seem to find their way to my doorstep
    This morning i have seen two - very unusual as I rarely put food outside anymore bc I attract raccoons and opossums to my front porch.

    it is as if the kitties sense there may be a vacancy in the house and if they hang around, they may be the next ones I trap and adopt.

    I now have "only" 6 inside my little bungalow

    Similar thing happened to a friend of my sister. She came home from work and her young cat was dead in the hallway, frozen in mid-step. Vet said prob HCM and the cat was gone instantly.

    My Ragdoll died unexpectedly in his sleep at age 5 and the vet said it was likely HCM. As others have said, there are rarely any signs beforehand.

    So sorry for your loss.

    previous saddle thrombus and then sudden death says cardiomyopathy

    I am sorry for your sudden loss and yes, it can be lightning fast with rarely a warning.

    Like you say curled up content in a loving home.

    What a shock. I'm so sorry for the loss of your kitty. At least he apparently went peacefully.

    I'm so sorry. What a shock to lose one so suddenly and so young.

    I lost a TNR kitty to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. She was fine, and then she was dead. I was in the barn when it happened and it was very quick. HCM is a frequent diagnosis when young cats die suddenly, and there's very little warning or treatment.
