Reader Comment:

When advertising it would be polite to respond to phone messages and emails even if the item is sold.
Jean Kingsley-Monks, Lake Vinuela, j.kingsleymonks @ btinternet.com
(This may be asking a lot if the item was very popular. I wouldn’t expect anyone to return 20 emails, and I certainly hope a seller would not turn off their phone having just placed an advert. -Ed.)

Currently in foster care but needs her own forever home. If you would like more information please call 722766109 or reply by email
