Hey /an/

Recently I bought a pregnant mouse from PetCo as a mistake, but I decided to keep her. She was building her nest the night before she gave birth to a litter of 3 or 5. However, she ate 1-3 of her children on the first day but continued to nurse the other two. This morning when I woke up, I saw she was nursing them and keeping them warm, 15 minutes later I saw she devoured them. The other weird thing is the fact that she immediately continued to build her nest after she killed the last of her children.

Any idea why she ate them and continued to build?...

one reason they might eat their young is because there is something wrong with it.

yeah I've read that they do that. but then there's the question of were all 3-5 children deformed? I doubt it.

Maybe she was stressed? If she was a first time mother this is more likely as well. Even if you didn't bother her it still might have stressed her out

Take him to a vet, there are no resident veterinarians on /an/. All responses you will get will be to take him to the vet. We get it, you're broke, your dog is old, you live with your parents, there's no vets for a million miles. Just get it over with and make an appointment for your nearest vet.

this is called autism.
it's the reason you have trouble anthropomorphizing animals and thus loving them.

Yeah, there's something wrong with you mentally if you can't even understand the concept of loving an animal.

Because they "look ugly" and hang out near dead things.

But yeah, they don't deserve the hate they get. They clean up the environment very well and help prevent disease, like you said. But people will always hate them because they aren't "beautiful" or "graceful" like hawks, eagles or falcons and eat rotting corpses. I'm sure that makes people imagine them as being dirty or something.

Which the graceful part is bullshit anyway, the turkey vultures around where I live are some of the most graceful fliers I've ever...

God, I love being a human. Humans are like the best animals. Penguin? More like shitguin. With a shit grin. We have the best grins, the best smiles, because we're so happy. Especially in the West. Being born as a human in the West is like winning the birth lottery. Most of us spend like half of our lives just chilling, eating heaps of food which we can obtain with like zero effort from a large store within a few hundred metres from our homes. How do we afford all of that? We must be working ourselves to death! Nope, we just sit at a desk for a few hours a day, or do some...

Hey /an/, I need some help making a decision.

A former co-worker found this little guy in a Wal-Mart parking lot last week, and although she loves him, he doesn't seem to get along with her dog and so she's trying to find a new home for him.

I already have one cat who I adopted a few years ago from an acquaintance who was moving into a new apartment where they didn't allow pets. My wife and I don't make a ton of money, but we make enough to live comfortably in our three-room apartment and care for our existing pet properly.

Having said...

For one thing make sure the cats have something between them when they meet. Like the new cat in a carrier of some sort or let them smell each other through a door. Having the new cat all of a sudden be in your cat's territory is a fight waiting to happen.

Is your cat up to date on all their vaccines? If not, do not bring that other cat around your cat until one or both of them are. You don't need this new cat giving your feline herpies
>>
>>2108539
Our cat is an exclusively indoor cat, so she doesn't have any vaccines to prevent against risks associated with being outdoors.

The new cat doesn't have a carrier, but is apparently fine with car rides, so the co-worker was planning on getting him here that way. Do you think that we should put him in our cat's carrier while he's still in the hallway before bringing him into our apartment, or would that be weird?
>>
>>2108544
DO NOT LET A STRAY UNVACCINATED CAT INTERACT WITH YOUR UNVACCINATED CAT. If the other cat was outside it has a great chance of carrying something that it will transmit to your cat. Some diseases can transmit with as little as being in the same breathing space

Also yes, if you are going to introduce them you need to have the other cat in the carrier first. It might be weird but it will put you cat at ease and lessen the chance of your cat being defense. Look up techniques on introducing cats gradually. You will...

Hyenas are cool, especially spotted hyenas. When you think of predators, you usually think of wolves and big cats but these motherfuckers came from cat-like weasely motherfuckers. They are basically civets and mongoose that took a sharp canine turn .

After 8 years, a long life for its kind, he died in peace under the spring blossoms.
