  1. UPDATE TO EARLIER TOPIC OF CRUELTY AND ABUSE OF BIRDS Went back to "Pet Avenue" this morning to get photos to take to the Chapala Ecology Department. And....THE BIRDS WERE GONE!! Several people responded to my first post saying..."Buy them and Set them Free". Perhaps this is what has happened. I am hoping for the best for those beautiful birds. Thanks to all of you who responded to this topic and especially to those who provided useful information.
  2. Apologies to everyone who has replied to my post about the birds in the transparent enclosure. I had the name of the place wrong Wow, what a dingaling. Thanks to Mattoleriver, (see picture above), it is the "Pet Avenue". I'm going there again tomorrow, and will get pictures of the birds. Also thanks to Sue for the information about reporting this to the Ecology Department. Does anyone know where that is in Chapala? and a phone number or email? Thanks to all of you! I need to see what can be done.
  3. Several people have asked for a clarification of the location pf the "Pet Place". This is on Hidalgo across from the Farmacia Guadalajara heading east toward central Chapala. It is a store that sells pet food and supplies. I didn't realize that there were other "Pet Place"s.
  4. I don't know if I am replying to just one response about my post regarding the Cardinals in a transparent enclosure in Pet Place, or if this will be visible to all who have replied. Thanks to all of you for your comments. I can definitely boycott Pet Place, because I never go there anyway, but perhaps we could get lots of people to do that. Does anybody want to help spread the word and get people to boycott that store? From most of the comments, I take it that there are no regulations in Chapala about prohibiting birds to be kept in transparent glass or plastic enclosures. Any cage is in
  5. We went to the "Pet Place" in Chapala today to get a pump for a bird bath. Near the door there was a glass or plastic enclosure that help about 4 birds that looked like Cardinals. i don't believe that this kind of bird is typically found in a cage. They were repeatedly flying into the glass trying to get out, hitting it with their beaks. They obviously didn't want to be in that enclosure, They are going to injure themselves. I believe this is cruel and abusive. Does anyone know if Chapala has a regulation against this, and how can the birds be helped and the procedure stopped.
  6. CAT LOVERS ALERT You are needed to give companionship to the cats at the Lakeside Friends of Animals Cat Shelter in Riberas. There are about 50 wonderful cats of all colors and personalities who need human interaction. You can just go in any of the 11 suites and sit with them, invite them on your lap, give them love, treats, or play time. They would all love a Forever Home, and the more interaction they have with people who love them, the more adoptable they will be. The cats are more active between 10 and 12, and tend to take naps in the afternoon. Please treat yourself and the cats to s
  7. This is all 6 year old information. Does anyone have any more recent info? We will have to nationalize our car in December, and not sure if it is worth it. Are there any alternatives?
  8. Does anyone know where we can refill our 20 liter water bottles with purified water?
  9. Thanks for your input. We will research the chemicals in the future.
  10. Thanks. Another person said the Cynoff is very toxic to cats, so I don't think we would do that. Do the sticky traps work for all bugs, or just some, and where do you get them?
  11. Thanks for your reply. "X" could very well be the same person. I will check out FuMiGa for possible future problems.
  12. Thanks for your reply and suggestions. We will not have them again.
  13. Thanks for your reply. Yes, I was careless in not supervising them closely. We don't have a maid anymore because we had a couple that we couldn't trust. I am hoping that if you have pets beware of the chemicals the exterminators use.
  14. Thanks for your input. The vet agrees with you about the fumigators not being truthful.
