Before publishing what? Sorry I can’t understand exactly what it is you’re asking

simple, she wants to know that if she takes a photo of the pets during a sit she can publish this on the site ( such as here in the Community) or does she have to ask permission from the owner first. ( Even though I don’t know how far personal image copyright extends to animals. I can imagine if there are parts of the home/house shown that it needs to be as non-traceable as possible but otherwise i shouldn’t see there being any problem with posting a photo of an animal we’ve taken care of :relieved:

@Maggie thanks Maggie makes so much more sense :sweat_smile: what do you think the ‘funny incident’ part could mean. That the HOs were annoyed that they did already. I wish people would follow up on their own topics that they create.

Legally, there is no problem. If the OP took the photo, the copyright belongs to them.

THS and this forum has guidance/rules about privacy aspects of photos, but that is a different matter.

@Enjaybee I though very funny incident meant they had a comical photo of a pet they would like to share on the forum…


I post outside of the house photos in THS without asking. If taken indoors or recognizable to the house, I ask for permission

Welcome to the forum @buster

THS have an article about social
Media etiquette and sharing photos which may answer you question.

They recommend that you “ask permission first”

The funny incident, Could be anything from wearing a pair of socks to getting stuck somewhere when trying to carry something way too big through a doorway or somewhere else. The furpets we look after can sometimes be sometimes used to or do the sillest of escapades. I used to have a cat who would sit on the wooden bench over the radiator situated with a small gap next to a window) and then fall over forwards very slowly ( almost slow motion) and let herself fall inbetween the radiator and the window and just carry on sleeping. After the first couple of times she actually started seeing it as a fun game. Of course I had to fish her out everytime :roll_eyes::roll_eyes:
