Are pandas autistic bears? Is that the reason why they don't mate very often?

They're the only "bears" that willing smother, kill or willingly neglect their offspring. As far as we should be concerned, nature should be allowed to take its course in regards to the panda. If they're too stupid to mate, then that's natty sells at work.

I have a muted calico cat, who is 6 years old. She has never been sick before, but is really ill right now. She recently killed a mouse, I'm not sure if the mouse had anything to do with these problems, but there is something serious wrong with her. I have an appointment for the vet but can't get her in for a week.

Symptoms
>loss of appetite
>loss of weight
>appears to be sweating

Any ideas on what could cause this? Thanks.

uhh...never heard of that one.

>Any ideas on what could cause this? Thanks.
Being honest, brace yourself for the possibility of putting your cat down. Loss of appetite and loss of weight are pretty much two awful indicators in any animal.

Her fur feels damp and she is hot. Its as if she is sweating.

That's what I'm afraid of, thanks for the honest reply though.

>appears to be sweating
Thfuck? Cats can't sweat. So unless she's just drooling all over or pissing herself then I have no idea what the fuck that could be.

Call a different vet, find an emergency one.

How do I gain its trust?

The first important thing would be identifying whether it is actually a rabbit or a feral bunny.

rabbits are naturally lone wolfs and won't form any bonds.

And so the "lol I found a baby rabbit/bird in my yard and put it in a box, what do?" threads begin

Wild rabbits are notorious for being one of the least survivable animals to raise in captivity. You being there stresses them out majorly, especially with that one being as old as it is. You'll just kill it by trying to keep it.

Judging from the looks of it, it's old enough to have left its mother an gone out on its own, or at least old enough to not need its mother's milk. Just...

Its a lengthly question, I need to give a bit of background before I ask.

I've had many cats in my lifetime, my step mother is a legit cat lady so I've seen the good ones and bad ones, but my new cat I got for myself and my girlfriend has behaviour I never experienced.

The cat was born in October, a stranger posted a litter of strays to give away, I got one for my girlfriend in December. The cat was never handled and very hand shy, but she warmed up to people very quick.

The problem, randomly when your petting the cat, or not petting her at...

>>2095495
I'm being conservative here when I say the correct solution to this cat's behavior is euthanasia.

You won't be able to fix it to an appreciable degree. It may stop attacking out of familiarity, but it's never going to be a "pet"
>>
These dags are idiots. People literally tame full on wild cats, so don't put your kitty down. Make sure she has lots of places in the house to hide and also a litter box in a few places. Play with her more with toys to lower her energy. Never play with your hands cuz it'll encourage her biting. Don't let her attack you - use the spray bottle or just pin her still when she does. Don't hit her or hurt her but make attacking you a negative thing. Even just yell really loud when she does and she'll probably bolt. If it's still an issue you might wanna...

Though I hate the very concept of dog "breeds" and breeding, you have to applaud those who are doing something to try to rescue lines ruined by AKC, inbreeding, and retardation.

It's sad, but in 2016, it surprised me to see any german shephard without roach back.

What causes roach back in German shepherds exactly? I know it's due to inbreeding but what exactly has hapened to the skeleton and what health problems does it arise?

I have an issue with my rotty. Shes the youngest of my 5 dogs and is the most outwardly dominant. One of our dogs who is also the oldest female is losing weight and i think the rotty could be responsible. could anyone give any advice to rectify this? we have a male but he doesnt seem outwardly dominant. the rotty claims all the food as hers and im afraid of her eating herself to death.

feed them separately? it might seem like more work but if you give a shit about your dogs it's probably worth it. if you feed her alone and she's rejecting it, or eats and is still losing weight, she might be sick. it's probably worth it to just take her to the vet before doing that just to rule it out.

So I decided to get some sea monkeys as office pets. What are some tips for long term keeping? Also where can I buy replacement packets? I'm having sort of a hard time finding them online.

I've been watching some videos also and people say you're supposed to aerate water with a pump that the kit is supposed to bring but mine didn't bring one, what's an alternative?

they keep their populations alive pretty well by themselves, just get dead ones on the bottom out every once in a while.

every fish store should sell artemia eggs.

A straw.
Why Sea Monkeys though? Fairy Shrimp are superior in every way.

How do I remove the dead ones? They're so small.

Also, if anyone knows of any documentaries focusing on mustelidae, share that info. There's a couple good ones on YouTube. One is "Raising Sancho" about an orphan giant otter, and another is called the Otters of Yellowstone, which follows a family of otters for a year at Yellowstone.

There's also a good one on Netflix about honeybadgers, but I can't remember what it's called.
