Not the only who? Or what? Meaningless without details. Who is she? Sometimes to what? Found it where?

LOL, Laura you´re far from being the only one! Try not to take it personally. It might be amusing to see how many more quotes you can find about us.

There are lots of guinea pig boards on the net and they each have their own unique flavor and ambience. This one is full of slightly odd pig lovers, with a wacky sense of humor. It takes a while to get used to us, but we really don´t mean any harm.

Evangeline is the exception, she´s always getting into trouble with someone!

I´m not the only one that must of gotten picked on on my first post-for a while I was afraid to post here and I found it interesting that someone said "the Naughty people at GuineaLynx" I´m not saying you´re all naughty. The person who said this did not put the two"o´s" in too.

Gawd almighty, there´s quotes about us on other boards? Probably opening a few cans of worms investigating further.......I kinda like worms.

I kind of like that, "the Naughty People". Reminds me of "the Beautiful People".

I think I´d rather be a whole person than just a bit, even a naughty bit.

I´m not taking it seriously anymore-but I did in the beginning. If I WAS taking it seriously, I wouldn´t have posted that. In the beginning I didn´t know who Evangeline was-all I knew was I posted my "Hi" message and got a response of someone telling me I didn´t know I was doing. No one could upset me again about that-I guess you build up an immunity to it. It hurts you the most when you not expecting it.

I can´t think who would say a thing like that. Probably someone who didn´t know the hearts of gold that hang around here. Even Evangeline has a cold hard heart of gold.

Not so fast there.

We have Nikki in
quarintine now, but have been putting them together for floor time.


You left out major chunks of info. All anyone had to go on was you were quarantining but allowing floor time. Floor time breaks quarantine.

People can only react to what you choose to post. From this post you sure as heck didn´t know what you were doing. Took several posts before important info came out. Bottom line - we ain´t mind readers.

I know I don´t visit certain boards - so assuming everyone here knows what you´ve posted elsewhere is assuming a lot. You have to treat each board like a fresh start.

And if Evangeline has a heart it´s because she just ripped it out of her latest toy, er, victim.

If you read what I said, you wouldn´t say that. If you don´t read carefully, you won´t get what I meant. I´m not assuming every one knows everything about me. Do you want me to write about my life? 1. I was born. And I´m not giving Evangeline a hard time, just when you´re new you don´t know if they were mad at you, why, and so on. AND FOR THE LAST TIME. I MEANT THEY ARE IN SEPARATE CAGES (well not any more). We quarintined them for 2 1/2 weeks BEFORE introducing them. Maybe I wasn´t clear and I admit that, but why keep bugging me about it?

Hello! my name is Laura. I have two Guinea Pigs- Pumpkin and Nikki. They are both female(sows). We have Coroplast and Cubes and are planning to finish our new cage this "wheek". I have had Pumpkin for more than a month now and she is around eight "wheeks" old. We have had Nikki for two "wheeks" and she is three and a half months old. We just rescued Nikki two "wheeks" ago. We bought Pumpkin from a pet store-no baby rescues were available. We have Nikki in quarintine now, but have been putting them together for floor time. They are getting along great.

The only thing you can bug me about is how I mis-typed. I meant We had Nikki in quarintine, but have put them together for floor time.

There is absolutely nothing there about separate cages during quarantine. No amount of careful reading will "get" what you decide not to include.

Why do I keep bugging you about it? Because you are giving the impression some people were deliberately being mean and trying to hurt you. And you are doing it here, without referencing the thread. If people don´t look for themselves they will get the impression we were beating up on you for the hell of it. That isn´t fair. You should take responsibility for your words and the fact that you failed to post complete info.

You were unclear and the reactions were polite and only what could be expected. No one was mad at you. They were(for the most part) very patiently trying to explain quarantine which by your words you didn´t understand.

No, I don´t want you to write about your life (although we asked more than once how old you were). I DO want you to take responsibility for not posting all the information and stop expecting us to "get" what you mean by osmosis.

I think you should read what you wrote carefully and give the victim role a rest.

Laura, I don´t think anyone is bugging you. You brought up the issue, and I have to say that the "typo" makes a very big difference.

You said she was in quarantine "now" but that they were also in contact. E (or whoever responded) correctly said that you can´t effectively quarantine if the pigs are in contact. Bottom line. I read that post carefully and I also got the impression you were quarantining and giving them floor time at the same time.

Unfortunately, the Internet is sometimes a difficult medium as you can only go on what people have typed, which is why it is so important to express yourself clearly. It was a mistake which we cleared up shortly thereafter. Why not let it lie?

All I was trying to point out was it wasn´t just me who was very sensitive. Since we cleared up the quarintine issue why are you bringing it up again? And I did mis-type that and I addmit I made that mistake. I understand why you would of thought that. If I hadn´t written it I would of thought that too. What I´m trying to say is that when I posted the first time I wasn´t aware of my mistake. I don´t just bring it up, whenever someone posts to me (not everyone) they say "I hope this doesn´t "hurt" the other Laura" Or something like it. I just want to clear this up and move on.

Sincerely,
Laura, Pumpkin, and Nikki

Ah well, I don´t bother with flowery qualifications. I don´t have any kid gloves in my drawers. I also don´t do "lols" or those gawdawful annoying saccharine sucky smiley faces.

But again - there is no way in Hell anyone could tell from your first post on this thread what you were trying to point out. Hence my ????? post. If you want to communicate, complete sentences/thoughts would be helpful.

And if you read thru this thread. YOU are the one bringing things up with your complaints that people were mean and hurtful to you. Reading the original threads you were quick to take offense and assumed everyone was being mean. You were definitely whining. And you still are.

I´m brought up the quarantine issue because it was the reason you were being defensive.

I´m not the only one that must of gotten picked on on my first post-for a while I was afraid to post here.....

You weren´t being picked on.

all I knew was I posted my "Hi" message and got a response of
someone telling me I didn´t know I was doing. No one could upset me again about that-I guess you build up an
immunity to it. It hurts you the most when you not expecting it.


Not true. You posted incomplete information and people tried to point out politely what they considered to be gaps in logic. A statement like this is whiny and unfair and brands people as being mean when they weren´t.


And I´m not giving
Evangeline a hard time, just when you´re new you don´t know if they were mad at you, why, and so on. AND FOR THE
LAST TIME. I MEANT THEY ARE IN SEPARATE CAGES (well not any more). We quarintined them for 2 1/2 weeks
BEFORE introducing them. Maybe I wasn´t clear and I admit that, but why keep bugging me about it?


Criminy, everyone knows CAPs means you´re yelling.

Why do I keep bugging you about it? Because you are giving the impression some people were deliberately being
mean and trying to hurt you. And you are doing it here, without referencing the thread. If people don´t look for
themselves they will get the impression we were beating up on you for the hell of it. That isn´t fair. You should take
responsibility for your words and the fact that you failed to post complete info.


In short, quarantine IS NOT the issue. The issue is giving the impression on that you were unfairly treated on an unrelated thread when you weren´t. THAT´s unfair. It´s unfair to everyone who took the time to post, who took the time to be helpful.

No one has treated you unfairly. An immunity is not required. No one was mad at you. No one picked on you. And in starting this thread, YOU brought the subject up again, not us.

It would appear that the intention of this thread was to make the point you were entitled to take offense and perhaps garner some sympathy for how "roughly" you were treated.

Is that clearing things up and moving on?

You know, I call ´em as I see ´em. And I´m not known as "Evil and Dreaded" for nothing. I´m happy to have you contribute to this board and I´d be delighted to "move on".

Having been the victim of character assassination(along with Lynx and Evangeline), I am extremely touchy when it comes to people being unfairly branded as being mean or hurtful when they were nothing of the sort. Innuendo has a way of insidiously becoming "truth" if not nipped in the bud.

So if you want to move on, I´m perfectly willing. And if you want to start fresh, I´m willing to do that too.
