My cat and dog both died and my mom has made the decision that instead of replacing them, we'll just go with an animal-free house so she doesn't have to worry about feeding times and medicine and cleaning up and all the shit that comes with animal care.
How do you guys get your animal fix when you live someplace they aren't allowed? I've found myself wandering through the pet store a lot recently, just to interact with the dogs that lazy owners don't leash and let just run up to you.
Alternatively, when I was a kid/teenager all we had a dog but I figured out if I 'found' a stray dog, kitten, or suddenly had some animal dumped on me then my parents would feel too bad to make me get rid of it. In my defense, people really did just leave animals in my yard or doorstep sometimes and I did find other homes for plenty of kittens I raised, returned lost dogs, didn't have tons of animals/wasnt a hoarder, I kept shit clean and paid for their stuff, etc. Alternatively if your mother doesn't go in your room often, you could probably...

My cat has been trying (and sometimes succeeding) to eat paper and sometimes plastic. All I can find on google about it is vague bullshit about "digestion issues" and stuff. Anyone know what specific problems this can cause? Or why she's dong it? pic related, it's her
Hello, anon from other boards here. Found this tiny cat outside under a bush, screaming in the rain. No sign of any adult mother around. This cat is very small and skinny. Anything I can do for him/her before I can bring it to a hospital tomorrow? It was shaking its ass off so im trying to keep it warm. Really trying to keep it alive. Poor bastard.
>>2109663 Ok OP after some searching I would guess it's a gumboot chiton, idk why all the dying though, if you really want to you can look up a recent tide chart for your area and maybe there have been some extreme tides that left the chitons deserted or washed them away. That's my best guess -marine biologist (mammals, not molluscs)

Why is my cat so mean? He cries when he's picked up and every time I try and pet him he bites (not hard) and lightly swats me away. He rubs up against me sometimes and once in a blue moon he'll let me pet him, but usually he's really distant and hates being touched ;-;
>>2109600 Having no testicles makes you more like a girl and girls like affection when it benefits them. OP, offer you cat a free meal or something so he thinks he's taking advantage of you when you're hugging him, that's how females work
anybody got issues with introducing puppy to an old dog ?
here's my situation: currently living in new flat and bought a lab retriever (female) i have a 9year old female (sterilized, never had puppies) german shepherd in my family house (with huge yard)
im visiting family about twice a months for the weekends, and the german shepherd is very agressive towards the lab. as in she tried to bite her twice, not playful or "dominance bite" but literally tried to murder her (managed to pull the pup away). i havent let them loose around each other...

>>2109479 Yes you can, but check your local laws regarding when they are in season, bird limit, non lead shot, and make sure you have all license and tags. A hunter education and gun safety course should be your first priority. You also need to learn how to prepare your kill. When all of this is sad and done you can sit down to a wonderful meal of gamey, greasy chicken. You can make wild duck taste pretty good, but that also takes experience. Basically anon, have somebody teach you how to hunt. Google can't tell you everything.
>>2109569 i don't want to 'hunt', though. i don't want to shoot a gun (i don't even own one, and i've never shot a real one).
i understand i need a bunch of licenses and shit if i want to shoot these things. but i don't want to shoot them. i can pretty much just walk up to one and grab it by the throat, then kill it in whatever the most humane way is.
my question is, would this be legal? or do i still need all these hunting licenses and gun licenses even if i don't have a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So growing up, i always felt bad for my dogs who were spayed or neutered. I decided to go natural for my first (on my own) dog. Should i rxpect drastic differences than i am used to? Anything extra i need to know about/care about? Was gonna get a boy dog probably.
they'll do anything possible to escape, you cannot leave them unattended in a yard ever. humping. more likely to be aggressive with other dogs. costs more to license them. some places won't let you rent if they aren't fixed. some dog parks won't allow entry. can never let them off leash unattended/around other dogs
and stop anthropomorphizing your pets, it's retarded. they don't know, only you do
>>2109303 there's literally no reason to feel bad for them. They have no concept of masculinity or femininity, anything that you might see in them like that is purely you projecting your own ways of thinking on to an animal. Unless you're a registered breeder, you should always spay/neuter your dogs and cats. It drastically improves their behavior in almost every case, and eliminates any chance of them developing genital cancer or other diseases related to the reproductive organs.
They're animals, they... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I got my dog fixed at 18 months. The only problems we had were that other dogs didn't like him. he got jumped a couple of times (no damage thankfully). also, humping. not other dogs, but his bed and the legs of the women in our house, especially if they were menstrusting - he would be relentless. he got neutered about 2 months ago and both of those issues have been fixed. He plays well with other dogs now with no fear and he doesn't hump unless I'm playing and he gets overstimulated, though it's easy to redirect him.
I understand it's a choice... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
