Community Rules and Privacy on the Dash Kitten Web Site

Our rules are simple. In order to ensure we have a fulfillling and educational blog:-

  • We request that you be respectful and courteous of other commenters, readers and writers.
  • Be kind at all times.
  • If you disagree with something, keep your response brief and courteous. People rarely read very long responses to a blog post and they do not read ‘rants’.
  • Contentious and offensive statements or inappropriate comments will not be posted.
  • If you are angry at something or someone, please, take a moment. Walking away from the keyboard is a big help – so is cuddling your cat.
  • We are a #NoDeclaw blog. Comments that run counter to this will not be published.
