yes, I do

Every year I grow most of my vegetables from seed.

This year, I have Tomatos (white-purple), Kiwanos and Achocha.
But I'll get a few more soon

Also, I sometimes grow (or at least try to) other plants, like Dragonfruit, true lotus or redwood (yes, the giant ones)

did you try to look for it? i had two budgies that got out, outside, and they were both back in the house in less than 5 minutes... one never left my garden, and she let me pick her up and put her back in her cage... the other (her mate) flew back after flying past the neighbor's house, and i found him just behind the garden fence where he let me pick him up and bring him back home (he called to me when i whistled to him and i found him that way)

don't rely on clipped wings ever either btw, my conure once jumped off me and ended up in a tree...

We got Easter bunnies. How the hell do I take care of them properly? They have a cage, rabbit food, and each other. Both are supposedly male. What kind of toys do I need to get them? Right now they have newspaper as bedding. What is the proper bedding? Why do they poop so much? How do I socialize them? Do they like running on wheels? Why do people do this? ;-;

Hello. I don't normally ask for help but my parents bought a puppy. I think it's a Pitbull.we have had it for two days now.
My parents say it was only 6 weeks old when they took it
I've been googling around for proper puppy care and it seems like this was too early and it could fuck the puppy up. Well, this became a little evidenr tonight. The Puppy slept in her crate next to my bed and would not stop whimpering. I tried to ignore it and when I didn't ignore it, I would take her outside for a few minutes and then take her straight back to the crate

It's just a baby, have patience and CONSTANT supervision. Get it to the vet as SOON as you can for a check up. Cut costs by getting boosters from a feedstore or petstore. Start socializing with other polite dogs as soon as possible after she's had her boosters.

I've got my hands on a dog who's nails look like this but worse. How do i go about cutting this if i don't have dog nail clippers? Is it dangerous to use human nail clippers? How dangerous?

>>2092831
look at the underside of the paw, you should be able to tell how far you can cut them. Just clip the nail, not the part with the nerve endings and blood vessels

also, how does a dog get nails like this?
Too much indoors/never outside?

Because I've never clipped my dogs nails and hers look like pic related
>>
Don't use human clippers, it could damage the claw you want to keep. Human clippers are flat because human nails are flat but dogs' are circular. Applying the flat clipper would put uneven pressure on and crush the claw strangely.
>>
Petsmart/Petco will do it for like 10 bucks. Or for 10 bucks you could buy a pair of clippers. Truth be told, most dogs take a lot of familiarization training to let you cut their nails. It's not as simple as it sounds. You have to exhaust all their energy beforehand, be careful of your finger placement on their pads because they're ticklish, give lots of treats, and all that will ONLY work if they are cool with it. If they're not cool with it, you have to show them that it will not hurt them through constant positive reinforcement of the experience.

So I'm the guy who posted a few weeks ago about just bringing pic related (Violet) home. She's incredibly smart, cute as fuck and well-mannered (almost as an adult!) in the house.
The problem is that I think I have to "re-bond" with Violet, as she seems to be afraid of me because I am more "stern" whereas my parents are more friendly and permissive.
>inb4 abuser, I'm not subhuman
She's 10 1/2 weeks old, and been home two weeks. Is it possible for me to re-bond with her so that I become "her"...

You're going to rehome her because she likes your parents more? Just try to be more gentle with her. Do a lot of training with lots of treats. Teach her all of the tricks so you get lots of positive interaction
>>
>>2092489
>rehome
give her away? hell no.

We got her originally for me, to become a seizure-response service dog. The 8th-10th weeks of life are normally the human-dog bonding period, and I think I screwed that up by setting my expectations too high for her age and not giving enough affection and praise in return. I want, no, NEED her to bond with me so she can help me in most any situation I may find myself in.

put some dirty litter outside. cats can smell from around 2 miles and their own scene will help her find her way back. dont keep the food unless you're able to monitor it because you're able to monitor it (other animals may come and scare her.)

>>2092485
Or you could put out something that smells like you or the mom. Whoever or whatever their favorite thing is, find something that has that scent, be it a shirt you have been wearing all day or you cat's favorite blanket and put it outside so the kitten can find its way back home via scent.

Don't put the mom out or you might be missing 2 cats instead of 1. Also, get your cats fixed

He got to eat his favorite treat today before going which was watermelon! As soon as it touched his lips he blew up with excitement and went to town on the little pieces i bit off for him. He was about 14 years old. Had a nice long life and I can't complain about the times I had with him. Only wish I would've spent a little more time with him...sucks seeing an empty cage already.

Get ahold of a vet as soon as possible, newborns are VERY fragile and VERY easy to kill on accident. Google newborn abandoned kittens right now so you can avoid harming it, but basically it's going to need kitten formula, kept warm, fed every two hours and helped to pee and poop with a warm wet towel rubbed over the genitals. It also needs a lot more care than that, but start googling that shit right now till you can get it into a vets office.

It may also be dehydrated, try finding a dropper and gently...

Not if they make percect grades, get close connections with all their professors and make it into a successful graduate program. But if you're doing all that you might as well go for vet status.
An undergrad in life sciences is virtually useless, coming from someone with one.
>>
>>2091954

They are wasting their time if they don't plan to pursuit graduate school. Zoology is too broad of a subject to cover adequately in a bachelors. Also, OP will be competing with people with graduate degrees for basically every job.

OP, you need to intern and volunteer. You need to pump your resume with relevant experience.
