Welcome to note_to_fuzzy, a community designed for your letters to your small fuzzies, including hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, chinchillas, sugar gliders, degus, ferrets, or hedgehogs. Basically any small fuzzy pet.
Community Rules 1.) Please keep all entries in a "note" format. Anything else should be put behind a livejournal cut (see the FAQ if you don't know how). This includes asking for advice, asking for help, advertising related communities, etc.
2.) Please be kind to all posters. If you see someone doing something that you feel is unhealthy for their animals, or generally a bad idea, I encourage you to post a nice note to them letting them know why. To those who don't want to hear these things, I'd reccomend not posting here. If you cannot accept nice criticism, you are not ready to participate in a community. On the other hand, please do not flame people who don't know any better.
3.) We are a pro-rescue community. If you are a breeder, or not pro-rescue, you are still welcomed to participate, however, we do ask that you refrain from promoting breeding or buying from pet stores as a means of small fuzzy aquisition.
4.) Please refrain from posting blatant cases of animal abuse. If you own an animal and feel the need to abuse it, we don't want to hear about it. If you've rescued an animal who's had a sad life, feel free to post notes in reference to such, but in deference to those with soft hearts, please LJ cut it and indicate that it's sad/traumatic/etc. If you have pictures, please LJ cut them as well.
5.) You do not have to own said animal. Leaving notes to your roomies/parents/kids fuzzies is perfectly alright. :)
