This is my #1 pet hate also!



My #2 is when that hot young chick next door walks around at 9am wearing her skimpy lounge wear... it's very distracting while I'm trying to get the breakfast going... lol

Cats.. yah, I agree. Tell me why do dogs have to be licensed and on a leash and cat's get off free? Life isn't fair.. but, no one ever said it was.

Since we enjoy peace and quiet, we find it most annoying to be next to the "weekend party animals", sharing their music and drunken loud mouths till all hours. We try to avoid campgrounds with lots of amenities because those seem to be the "destination" campgrounds with lots of yelling kids. Do I sound grumpy??

While it does not coming under the heading of 'bad camp ground behavior', one thing that 'bugs' us is the amp grounds that say they have 'free WiFi' and one can not access it, or at best, spotty connection. While we do not travel a lot, when we do we need to pay bills and stay in tuned with what is going on back home.
Otherwise I do agree that people not picking up after their pets, ranks at the top. We travel with our Labs and when we are out and about, I have several bags in my back pocket to pick up after them.

Why was your cat OUTSIDE your RV? First, that is not allowed in any CG. And second, she could have bolted into the woods or been hit by a passing RV or car. Third, many cats simply wander away from their owners RV never to be seen again. They simply get lost or become food for the local wildlife.

The dog's owner should have been reported to the CG Host.

Good. And from now on, keep your cat INSIDE your RV where she is safe. Many CGs we've been to, from FL to upstate NY, have cats that were left behind by campers for one reason or another.

In every case the camp Host will but a quick end to that racket. I've never known one to not.

Really?? Our cat routinely goes outside the RV on his leash, and we've never been confronted by any CG personnel about it, nor have we seen any published rule forbidding it in any CG we've been to.

What about the child learning her lesson about opening the RV door? Children should be taught to NEVER open the RV door themselves if there are pets inside.

The cat will climb a tree by nature. What did you expect her to do? What lesson did you expect her to learn from this? That's her nature. It's instinct. Should she have sat there and let herself be attacked and perhaps killed? If the child opens the door again she ill most likely leave the RV again. Cats are cats.

Really? Did I say cats were not allowed outside the RV ON A LEASH? If his cat was on a leash, and that is allowed, it would not have ended up in a tree. In fact if he couldn't lift her fast enough she may have been killed by the dog/s.

I was just wondering the SAME thing?!?!?! And had the cat been staked to the ground as some cat owners do, she would have been dead. I would teach the child to NEVER open the RV door unless an adult was with her. For her own safety as well as the pets safety.

No, what you said was:

You used no qualifier whatsoever regarding leashes. You just stated that cats are not allowed outside an RV. Period.

This is so common we finally got our own mifi from Verizon. In fact we've become so disgusted with private CGs we spend nights when on the road at WalMarts and Truck Stops. When we camp we choose State Parks and COEs.

Most Mall and many eateries now have free wifi. There is usually a sign in the window or on the wall where Malls are concerned. Unless in a remoter area you should be able to get connected.

I'm waiting for those who don't pick up the poop to step forward and admit it.

Wow, I thought this was about bad campground behavior. Unfortunately the OP started about unleashed animals and this turned into a pet rant. (even a parenting critic)

What gets my hackles riled are people go outdoors and then ruin it. Collecting firewood and breaking branches for kindling. Carving on trees, markers on any flat surface, spray paint. Trash. Why people can carry it in full and then leave empties where they enjoyed a natural setting displays a level of thoughtlessness it's hard to comprehend.
