Fwd: Please help me... in a panic (use of wording)
- Jamie sent this email to me, but I think she meant it for the entire group.
I see her point, regarding prefacing our statements with a qualifier like "IMO". And, perhaps members should. But it does seem obvious to me that it is whether we qualify an opinion or not.

Maybe people need to start their posts with "In my experience" with "my cat"
this is what happened, "you should consult a vet". Something of that nature not
only gives the information of their experience, but also doesn't make people
panic thinking that everything posted here will happen to every cat that is
suffering with this horrible condition. I have always taken information from
you guys and asked "my vet" of the possibility of different things. As with
humans each pet is also different. I have worked in the medical field most of
my life and have seen different results and reactions across the board. Case
example... My husband suffered a massive heatstroke in 2005, according to most
of the doctors he was going to die with in days, here it is almost 5 1/2 years
later and he is in the living room watching Law and Order. Most people do die
when their core temp is 108 but he is our miracle and each cat that survives is
also a miracle. I pray for your kitties each nite and hope that someday soon
something will be found to gaurentee each survives. Until then lets share
information responsably and read our posts back before posting to make sure we
have our wording correct as not to panic or misguide anyone. As said time and
time again on here, we are here to share information and give support. Lets
keep up the good work at doing both. Hope the New Year brings new insite to our
Jamie and angel Miss Yeta

Ir's unhelpful to drag this on.
