Pretty disgusting isn't it. Why would anyone let their cat have kittens and then want to sell at a profit. Should be classed as trader like behaviour ?

i think its awful, god knows where those poor things will end up, and my question was removed by a mod! thats terrible

i thought the selling of pets wasnt even allowed on here, if she wants to sell them then fair enough but on a site like this? is she going to check who the buyers are ? will she check on the kittens once rehomed? i doubt it

Probably end up in a real nice home.

Saying "who know where these poor things will end up"
You could say the same thing no matter where they are sold.

very true hun, but if they home check the buyers and follow up on how they are being treated then fair enough,
if they are sold on, i just hope the seller does these checks, its not hard to do

Animal sales were banned so I'd like to understand why they now allow them

RB had a point in the thread about trader like activity, no one sells a beloved pet, they only sell them for profit if breeders, most people just give away cats


Only people I've ever seen selling cats are breeders OR Gypsies

hopefully a mod will come on and clarify the rules, i hope the seller does home check before handing them over but i doubt it,
just have to hope they dont get harmed with someone she sells them too

Reactive moderation, what's there not to understand? Report the thread, your job is done.

has been reported and ASB now allowing it

disgusting if you ask me!

I would be more concerned for the welfare of free kittens.
What checks have to be carried out by sellers of kittens by other methods of distribution?

Are members worried about the postage method? Maybe HUKD can specify that the cardboard box with airholes are used?

The seller was only offering two of the same product. Hence, not trade-like behaviour!

PS. "Misc" thread...

"Surely this is unacceptable on for sale/trade....."

PPS. Two related "Misc" threads; the same member was trying to rehome a pet (for free) but was stopped because the animal may have been on the restricted breeds list...

"Anybody looking for a family dog?

"Dog rehoming"

Presumably if it had not been a restricted breed, then the first thread would have continued to a mutually satisfactory conclusion.

but surely it is profiteering as the cats do not have any rrp oO

I see the mods are quiet on this one ....................

Legal pets have never been on the prohibited list.

As for profiteering/rrp - we'd review any such concerns if/when reported.

Thanks for the infraction aScottishBloke and for explaining why.

Shocking that you only just decided to look at this thread now..... or maybe something else I have said has annoyed you and you have decided to infract me for this ?? My guess it is was my statement that hukd is not a safe place to trade has upset you.

Please can you return my comment and remove the line that you find offending as I feel it is on topic and adds to the discussion..

We're not that petty, just ensure you can comply with the code of conduct prior to posting and all should be well. As for the deleted post, feel free to repost but do remember to take the advice above.

doesnt this thread in feedback constitute a report on the person selling two kittens? Obviously selling kittens is profiteering isnt it?

Somebody who thinks keeping pets & their eventual offspring is free of any costs obviously does not keep pets themselves.

dont be stupid - cats dont have an rrp and I have lost count of the number of times threads have been closed as the items dont have a rrp

I have two cats BTW :)

I didn't say animals had a recommended retail price.
They do, however, eat food, need injections & other veterinary incidental costs.

Perhaps asking a nominal fee for an animal is a way in which a concerned seller can tell if a prospective buyer realises the cost of keeping a pet. Those that baulk at the thought of the initial payment for an animal may not be deemed suitable as an owner, & the seller may reserve their right not to sell to that party.

i dont think many disputed what she wanted to charge for the kittens, its just the fact that she is selling them on here ( thought you couldnt but confirmed you can) without doing any sort of home checks, ect,
I have a couple of friends who are rescues for kittens,pups, cats , dogs even horses of all ages, and the kittens that are sold to scumbags who treat the poor things like dirt under your feet makes me sick, then they end up with the poor kittens back with them in really poor health some die with in hours of being rescued.
im not a cat lover but i couldnt harm one,

ive just noticed that both threads selling kittens are back, im disgusted that this is being allowed, before we know it we'll have pets for sale/trade pages! sorry but i think my time using this site is more or less done with, no wonder so many of the old timers left.

Why would HUKD have pages specifically for pets? No other item has this, and yet something that is traded a handful of times since HUKD's inception suddenly will warrant its own page.

What is it with animals that leads normally sensible people to talk nonsense, ignore any normal questions posed to them, and overreact?
#24
So, ps3 games/ghds can't be sold - pets can? wtf? Glad I don't buy or sell on here, seems far too much hassle.

no one has asked me a question ?? a lot of people asked the seller questions but she declined to answer and then the mods removed them

1 - if that's not point scoring then what is it?

2 - I'm not arguing current position, I'm arguing previous position

Why you can never just give a response without a dig I don't understand frankly, you are a representative of the site so why the rudeness when outlining your position. It's rather pathetic tbh

1. Clarification, not point scoring.

2. Still never been on the prohibited list. If you don't want to admit to being wrong, let it go.

There's no dig, although it may suit you to interpret as such.

Ok after the doggy thread (now gone) I'm wondering how many people think it is appropriate to trade animals on the net?
Please dont turn this in to arguments i just want to gather peoples views on this...admin and mods too :)

How is saying 'tedious pointscoring' clarification?

Not wrong at all, listings were pulled, you say otherwise. To me that's you being wrong but hey ho

Forgot about that thread.

It seems I was asking the same questions four years ago, and the people disagreeing against pets being traded on HUKD couldn't put forward a decent argument. Same poo(pet) different day/year.
