First of all, why are they so wary of humans when they have no reason to be?
Also despite being weary of humans they do some pretty oddly brave things. For example I have a lot of stray cats in my area, and if I live my door open they will just walk in to my house. Pretty strange behavior if they're wary of humans.
And if I ever get them in my garden and I go outside, they will walk to within one metre of me, but every time I try and stroke them they will move back. Yet they wont run away scared, they keep coming back... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Feed them. They may never let you pet them, but they'll at least be less wary of you. And if you're fond of them and are going to feed them, the kindest thing you can do for them is to get them spayed and neutered. My local TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) program charges 20 bucks per cat. They even cover the cost if the person is too poor to pay.
Brace yourself for several /an/ posters who are about to charge in here foaming at the mouth. Some people REALLY hate stray/feral cats. Providing links to nationwide studies and comparisons of the different methods to control... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2113811 Keep the kitten in a carrier and let the dogs get used to her scent and appearance.
Take the doggies out for a walk or to the park, and let them expend as much energy as possible
When they get back home, let the kitty out but keep her in your arms. Let your doggos inspect her. If they seem calm, (hopefully by now you can tell if your dogs are distressed or not) set the kitty on the floor and keep a watchful eye. This is what I did when I introduced my 13 week old kitty to my two dobermans and my gf's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Carefully. Always supervised. A well understood "leave it" or "no" command is strongly advised. My mom used the term "baby" anytime she introduced a new animal into the household. The older animals were trained to be protective and non confrontational of any animal designated "baby". Worked too. We kept ducks and rabbits in the backyard, and also several dogs, several cats (yes, I lived in a zoo, but I only have 1 pet fish as an adult). At the height of insanity, there were 7 cats, 5 dogs, 11 rabbits, 3 ducks and multiple aquariums. There... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I recently got my first reptile pet. He's a beardy named Dexter (pic related). I feed him regularly and his lighting seems at the right temp. The problem is that he keeps glass dancing (scratching at the glass). I'm pretty sure he wants out, and whenever I hold I hold him at my computer desk, he wants to jump out of my hands onto the floor. I want to let him walk around but I'm afraid I'll lose him because he is still a small baby beardy. Any advice?
Who's elses pet just died on them? But not in a calm way, but like their head was ripped the fuck off with their brains splattered everywhere. This is the third time this has happened, and its really fucking irritating.
Hey, /an/. I need your help identifying this chick I rescued from a fast food joint. We think it's a great tailed grackle but I can never be sure. Any ideas? I live in western Texas in the great Plains area.
>>2113277 Originally there were 2 but the other one had been ran over. The mother has been nowhere in sight for the last couple days. It was gonna die eventually but I agreed to try my hardest to save this one.
Idk if this is the right place to post this, but I just got the random urge to get into gardening (or some sort of plant-related learning activity) as a side hobby - way better than owning a pet. Pets will abandon you and get hit by cars. Plants? Plants are friends forever.
Anyways I know jack shit about plants and also live in an apartment in the middle of a city several stories up. How can someone like me get into small-time casual gardening?
>>2113171 >apartment in the middle of a city several stories up Eh. >food Put onion bulb on a water jar, so it's not soaked, only root part is, add water every day, change water frequently, harvest leek. >fun buy a goldfish bowl, don't harass goldfishes with the tiny fucking bowl, but plant some cute water moss instead.
My cat has been starting to eat weird things. He's been trying to eat the bits of carpet that he rips off when he scratches his cat tree and eating the tags off my electronics (like he chewed off and then tried to eat the tag tied around my fan wire) Has he developed pica for some reason? Since he's not allowed outside and can't eat grass does he want more fiber or something?
>>2112809 Actually my moms dog is terrifying. He's a mix. Chihuahua so he's a bigger and muscular. He runs out of the dark without barking and jumps right over them and then herds them off into the woods. All you here is his nails hitting the concrete as he runs in the pitch black.
