She's approx. 18mths old, black DSH. Desexed, wormed, got all her shots etc.
Here's my problem: She keeps scratching at my/my housemates' door at night and early in the morning. If I keep her in my room overnight she scratches to get out in the morning, and if she's locked out of my/my housemates' rooms then she scratches at the door to be let in. Then, will sometimes scratch to bet let out again a few minutes later. All this would tell me she's doing this for attention. It wakes... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2122028 >>2122028 My cat has a scratching post. It also has free run of the couches, outside and my bed base. It isn't longing for scratching surfaces. It's a different scratching anyway - it isn't a stretching or claw maintenance kinda thing, it's a quick tap-tap-tap. Like she's trying to get through to door. She also tries to stick her face underneath and put her paws under.
It's a cat. It doesn't want to be trapped. Cats are largely nocturnal and don't sleep on your schedule. There are exceptions, like one of my two. She has full range of the house but hardly leaves my room(door is always open, she isn't skittish or fat, just doest care) and sleeps on my time to the point where she will meow nonstop to let me know its time to get the fuck to bed. Then again, she is also 26 years old at this point.
Not all pets will be convenient for you and you will have to work around them. Your cat is unlikely to stop, but you can... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

So there are pink flowers growing around the portable that I teach art in. Unfortunately I have no access to water and have to carry buckets of water to my portable for class. It's a ton of work. So after the kids are done I pour the paint water into the yard around the door. I'm just wondering if these flowers are tinted by the paint or naturally pink. There are no other flowers anywhere around to compare.

Also, just looking up a random subject on youtube yeilds good results. There are some real hidden gems in there that are pretty good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-4w5xYLwiU This one is about plants and it really makes you see things from a different perspective on how plants behave. We aren't that different from them.
Forgot this board existed, would've asked here earlier
Found a baby coon in my back yard by a tree. Pretty small and eyes are closed, a little bit of ringing is starting to show on the tail. Looks barely older than pic related.
I noticed it because it was crying. It crawled to the sound of my voice. No way it came a long distance dragging itself, so it had to be from the tree. But I can't see a cavity or nest. It's around 3 stories tall and thick, but it thins out as it goes up and I just can't imagine space for a nest.

About two weeks ago I created this aquatic ecosystem a few weeks ago and have loved watching it slowly develop.
Recently though this white slimy stuff as seen in the picture has formed and i am unsure what it is or what could've created it. Any ideas?

Lets have a general thread about animal jobs; any job that involves animals in some way.
Ask questions about getting an animal job Share stories about your animal job Discuss your dream animal job Etc.
For me, I'm curious what kind of studying I'd need to do to get a job working with a specific animal. If I wanted to work with just otters, or maybe otters and other mustelidae, what kind of background would I need to establish before getting that kind of job?
since no one has replied I guess I will. I work in a very low kill stray intake shelter (only euthanizes for extreme medical/behavioral), previously employed at an emergency vet and a large county run shelter in SoCal. the SoCal shelter was hell, the eVet was cool, but over all prefer my job now
I'm almost done with classes to be a CVT, which is just so I can make a bit more money than I am now. still deciding if I want to further my education by going to vet school, or studying animal behavior.
