So I found this cute little guy stuck in my doorway and it looked much prettier than the average lizard you see around here, so I'm just wondering what kind it is and if I should just let him go and be free or if I should take care of it.
>>2093108 We call them Alligator lizards around where I live because of how fucking hard they bite and they tend to be more aggressive than the average fence lizard.
You can let it go or look up a caresheet. I used to keep them when I was a kid, had them in a fish tank with a heat lamp, rocks, shelter and crickets and worms from the petshop. I would keep them for about a month or two at a time before letting them go and finding a new lizard to play with.
If you pick them up gently and slowly they are pretty chill... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /an/, /fit/ here. I just came to my friend's place and saw this homeless cat he has been telling me about which looks hungry/dirty/generally fucked up. I saw it sneak in under his house and I feel that I should try and help it.
I have a dog and had a cat before and live on the country side where there is a lot of nature. What I am wondering is how would I go about taking this cat in? Like making it friendly towards me, cleaning it without getting any diseases etc.
Should I not do it at all? Any advice, stories or anything would be appreciated.

>>2092956 Okay, how should I go about catching it? I tried to call it to me but it showed no interest and just ignored me. Should I drug it with some food or trap it in a cage to get it to the vet? It looks like it could carry diseases like scab or similar so should I use some type of gloves? Thanks beforehand for any help
Is there any reason a dog wouldn't like basements? I've noticed any time my dog is in the basement with me he can't relax, won't lay around like he does everywhere else and just begs to lay in my lap or else he stands up
My guess would be temperature or smell. Maybe there is mold down there you don't know about, but he does. Or maybe you have some critters living down there that he can smell, like an opossum or raccoon.
Are you at a strange altitude? Maybe there is a change in pressure between the house and basement to his ears that you can't detect but he can.
Are there laws in the US against torture breeding/animal cruelty?
This guy breeds excessively large Neapolitan Mastiffs and this is his latest freakshow project... I sincerely hope this never happens. Surely there must be some legislation against selectively breeding negative traits into animals???
>>2092798 To be fair, my favorite and the worst one is the guy who was retarded enough to get a fucking monkey advertised as "good breeder, not a pet" and then slap a diaper on it and keep it in his house because "nothings mean forever"
>>2092792 Middle aged women getting monkeys/apes as baby substitutes is a well known phenomenon. Most of the time it ends badly for the primates, since these women don't know shit about what they need.
The well known case where a chimp ripped a woman's face of was the result of this. The case is often used as an example of how evil chimps are supposed to be, but really, it was the woman's faulty, anthropomorphising care that was to blame.
This is the main reason that primates should be banned as pets.
My mother relayed me a story from her past, where she had a chicken that got bitten by a dog in the behind and developed an infection as a result. It got infested with maggots and she had to clean it out and nurse it back to health. When she was done, the cloaca (or whatever it is called) was healed shut and the chicken couldn't lay eggs properly.
Somehow, that story made me sad. Btw, this story happened several decades ago in the Anatolian countryside, so going to the vet for a chicken would be unrealistic, as in, there were many PEOPLE who couldn't go to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2092755 Maybe could have put something in the cloaca so it could heal around the natural opening but not close with scar tissue. The foreign object would have to be held in place with some kind of harness. I'm thinking something similar to the "spoon" they use when an ewe prolapses. Ugh, poor chicken. I think putting it out of its misery would have been best, however. The cloaca is for egg-laying but also elimination. So if it scarred over, the chicken would die of sepsis because it couldn't poop.

So I had to put my cat down recently and think I'm finally ready to move on. If I really liked all of the attention and affection this cat gave me (spending most of her time with me when I'm available and so on) would be getting two cats a bad idea?
I am conducting a (very short!) survey regarding the opinions of people on renewable energy and how to fund it, and the environment. The data will be used in a paper that I'm writing for one of my classes.
