I got an e-mail from 'an teacher' the other day suggesting that I changed the wording on their new website from pet(s) to pet's....

I'd imported the text from their owld website so I was innocent anyway but wrote an stinging e-mail explaining that pet(s) is not possessive but covers a single or multiple pets...  whistle:

I was just about to send it when (for some reason) I checked the site again and found that pet(s) had been used both ways....  redface:
