Group Info

I know that there are a lot of groups for animal photography out there, but lots of groups decline photos that they believe aren't good enough. Well, this group believes that every photographer, whether it be amateur or professional, is a growing artist, and so this group will accept any of your photos! If you would like to join, the request is automatically accepted! There are a few rules though, so please follow them and have fun! I'd also like to say that this group is in full support of S.A.F.E (Saving Animals From Extinction), so I will include an awareness gallery for that, which will not have to be photos as long as it's sending everyone the message of how crucial it is to help our planet's endangered species!

Group Rules! Please Read!~

:thumb335867417: PLEASE no photos of animal abuse or death!

:thumb335877106: This is a photography group, so please try to only submit photos! There are two exceptions, and those are the Endangered Species Awareness Folder, which is for deviations that promote the well being of our planet's endangered species! Please submit anything that will emphasize how important it is to help and preserve the animals of the Earth! Secondly, since I hate to turn away submissions, there is ONE folder for other animal artwork aside from photography, but there is only a one deviation a day limit on this folder.

:thumb335876276: There is a limit of 5 deviations per folder a day, just so people watching the group don't get flooded by messages. I think that's a fair amount for now. As the group grows, the limit may change, but I will inform all members if that happens.

:thumb335875040: There is a limit of 2 deviations for the Featured folder each day, which you should submit the photos you are most proud of! These are also automatically accepted. You know which photos are your best, and you should be able to show them off proudly! :D Also, I have now added an "Admin's Choice" Featured folder, where I will add photos that were submitted to the basic folders that really catch my eye and I feel should be recognized. :3 Only I can submit to this special folder.

:thumb411973964: Please be kind and respectful to all fellow members!

:thumb371470435: Deviations are automatically accepted, but I will be checking to make sure there isn't anything inappropriate!

:thumb335875520: Please ONLY submit photos that have an animal in them.

Paw Print (Rainbow) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre Please keep in mind that you MUST be a member to submit! If you feel you're getting overwhelmed with the deviations from the group (I'm well aware of how that feeling is), just edit your watch on the group and uncheck the "Deviations" box, though it is nice if you were to look through the galleries during free time and support other members of the group! Have fun! Paw Print (Rainbow) - F2U! by Drache-Lehre

Also, a huge thank you to WagmoreBarkless, a member who's point donations have made it possible for the group to hold contests, and possibly become a super group in the near future! Please check out his gallery and give him the support he deserves! :heart:

Hey everyone, I'm so sorry I've been gone yet again. This time, it was my own choice because I couldn't handle seeing any animal photos honestly. ShadowpwnLord9999 and I lost our baby girl, Pepper, to a rare feline disease... It's been a while now, it happened on the 24th of July, but the grief has all but consumed us, especially Cory, since Pepper was his familiar and they shared a super close bond. It was devastating to me too obviously, because since Cory moved here with me, Pepper was the first cat that really felt like OUR baby. She was born after he moved here, we kept her healthy while her mommy cat recovered from surgery just a day after having her, and she grew up as our baby. She was just so special, like she was really Cory and I's child... She had just turned a year old in March... Here's a couple photos of her:

.:Our Little Pepper:. by Shadouge4eva


.:Curious Little Pepper:. by Shadouge4eva


We had believed that she had somehow gotten pregnant, although we both knew that there was no way because we were keeping her in one room away from our unfixed male until he was neutered. Her belly was huge and she was so small, and so I asked a friend of mine in PETA if they could go ahead and abort her "kittens" because I didn't think she could survive a pregnancy. Well, the day came, and four of our unfixed kitties went to be spayed and neutered, but I got a phone call around 2 that afternoon from my friend, saying that the vet was about to perform the surgery on Pepper, but to everyone's surprise, there were no babies on the ultrasound... She had contracted FIP, a parasitic disease that develops from a virus known as the Coronavirus. It affects less than 5% of cats, and 98% of cats that get it are under two years of age. No other cat in my home got the parasite... Just Pepper... It's incurable once the virus develops into FIP, and the vet recommended putting her down so that she would not have to suffer because she only had a couple weeks, tops, left to live... Of course, I said yes, and I don't even want to think about the phone call or telling Cory afterwards... She was brought back to be buried here, though it took us days to finally go visit the grave because we were so consumed with grief. Cory shut down almost completely. To say the least, it was one of the worst things that we've gone through, especially Cory, who had never lost such a close fur baby...

But, we're recovering, though it still hurts to think about her. I'm back on here now, and I'm sorry I couldn't bring myself to get on sooner than this.

I would like for people to be aware of the disease Pepper passed from though, so I will put a link about it below. If you have a cat under the age of two, keep a look out for symptoms so you can catch it before it's incurable. Like I said before though, it's a RARE disease that only FIVE PERCENT of cats get, so don't get yourself paranoid, I just want people to know more about it so that others will not have to share the same pain that Cory and I have. We're almost positive our other cat, Midnight, picked up the virus at the vets office when she went for an abscess, and Pepper somehow caught it and was somehow in that 5% that developed FIP...

Here is a link to explain the virus and the parasitic disease contracted from it:  www.petmd.com/cat/conditions/i…

Sorry again guys for being gone. I'm back again, I just need some time to heal. Thanks to everyone who understands.

Bullet - Kitty - by CutieChoco Alright, just a quick update for everyone about the contest! As you all should know, the voting deadline is tomorrow, the 15th, and I am pleased with how many more votes members cast for this contest, but since there are 22 entries this time, we really need to have more votes before the contest winners can be decided! So I will extend the voting deadline to the 18th. By that deadline, if I still don't feel like there are enough votes, I will still just go ahead with announcing the winners, because I do not want to postpone the results any longer than that! So here is the link to the previous journal where all of the entries are displayed, so if you haven't voted already, please take the small amount time to simply comment the number of the entry: .:Voting For The Lost In Thought Contest!!~:.
***Edit*** Apparently I missed an entry since it wasn't in the contest folder, so if anyone wants to change their vote, it's #22! I'm so sorry!!
It's finally voting time everyone!~ Submissions will no longer be accepted into the contest folder. Thank you to everyone who entered the "Lost In Thought" Contest!~ :heart: So far, this contest had the biggest turnout yet, with 22 submissions!~ :clap: So please be courteous and leave your vote for the entry you think captured the contest's theme the best! All you have to do is leave a comment with the number that corresponds to the entry you're voting for below! All contestants may vote as well, just not for your own. Voting will end on the 15th, assuming we get enough votes to announce the winners. Now, without further ado, here are the wonderful entries for the "Lost In Thought" Contest!~

:heart: Thanks so much everyone!~ :D Bullet - Kitty - by CutieChoco


Bullet - Kitty - by CutieChoco As for news, I just simply wanted to say that my fiance and I, ShadowpwnLord9999, lost our newest member of the family this morning, Autumn... She was a beautiful calico and since she was so young, it only took a couple days for the respiratory infection she had caught to completely drain her. I feel responsible, because for the past week I have been so busy sorting out everything from my cousin's trailer, then holding a yard sale to sell some of his stuff to help pay for his funeral, I didn't realize that she was even sick. I know that I shouldn't be too hard on myself, because I really had no choice but to be gone almost the entire week from home and be so, SO busy that all I could do when I would get home each evening was pass out from exhaustion. Still, I'm hating myself so much for not checking on her more, because I had no idea she was even sick until it was too late... So, I'm just reaching out to you guys for some comfort during my grief... :cry: Thank you all so much... Bullet - Kitty - by CutieChoco


Bullet - Kitty - by CutieChoco Okay, so now that I've said all of that, I wanted to add the next member feature in this journal entry!~ :D So here are 30 more of our members, a deviation from each one!~ :heart: Please enjoy, and I will try to be more on top of releasing these member features from now one so I can get to everyone!~ :aww: Bullet - Kitty - by CutieChoco
