We post bears.
I'm doing a survey thing and I'm too awkward to ask real people questions, so what is your favorite animal and your first name?

Cats. All felines. Thomas.
So everyone says cats need wet food. Can I just mix their kibble with water or unsalted chicken broth?
I've tried weaning them onto canned food and it makes their shit stink. I've tried Weruva, Tiki Cat, and some others. I'm weaning them like I'm supposed to.
I've been feeding acana dry and they've always had rabbit-soft fur, zero dandruff, no health issues. But everyone seems really serious about feeding canned food instead.
Raw is also not doable for reasons.
Honestly, a good quality dry food definitely will give them the nutrients they need. The major fear with not feeding wet is the moisture content because cats are at risk for UTIs and other organ problems from being dehydrated. They didn't evolve with a normal thirst drive like some animals, so making sure they get enough moisture is a MUST.
My suggestion is that you keep the water fresh and clean to encourage drinking, and maybe get one of the fountain water type things.
You can also buy bulk meat and just freeze it and on occasion cook her a little handful...

As far as I'm aware, that would be fine, but other people may know better. There's no reason your cats are special snowflakes though, and you should be able to wean them onto the wet food.

>implying snails aren't adorable.
Wtf. The feesh just laid there and took it.
Here, have a corvid.
discuss anything bird related
Reminds me of this photo I took a few months ago, not parrots but pretty sure they are birds.
Has anybody here adopted from a shelter that makes you fill out a questionnare or anal-rapingly nosy application form? Particularly a cat? I would like to adopt a fluffy baby but some of these forms I've seen online are just downright ridiculous and a few minutes of internet research tells me that shelters don't give out their animals nearly as generously as they used to.
How do I avoid having my application go intothetrash.jpg?
Didn't notice any Plant threads up.
I'd like to get some advice for taking care of my African violet again last time you guys helped I really appreciated it and my plant is looking a somewhat more healthy then before but I'm still unsure on its health.
I got a vase and I fill 1/4th of it with water and place a pot with a hole inside of it for about a day to drink the water and leave it like it is in the picture. This has made the leaves look much greener but also killed a couple too... Does this look healthy? I give it plenty of light and my room is pretty warm..
I've never managed to stay invested enough in Saintpaulias to not neglect them to death so ideally I shouldn't try to hand out advice, but ... The container you have yours in looks too large for it. It would probably do better still if you downgraded. Otherwise, I guess it looks alright enough but again, I'm no judge.
can we get a ants general thread going, i'm excited i just brought my Camponotus castaneus queen i caught last may out of hibernation a week ago and she just started laying eggs again over this last weekend
she has all seven of her nantics from last year as well, clutch of eggs from last fall that don't look so good (i think their dead, brown and crusty looking) they haven't grown any more since last fall but they are still carrying them around but i think that is all instinct
Just got a 20 gallon tank. What should I put in it?
Pic related; saw them at the pet shop, and I really like sharks so I think I might get some of them.

>can't spread rabies

>just wants to eat your garbage
you have 10 seconds to explain why you hate opossums
Why do some people argue that animals aren't conscious? It's obvious their minds don't work the same way ours do in many ways, but how is that evidence they aren't conscious? It's almost like people want an excuse to treat animals like shit, because if they aren't living beings with thoughts and emotions, that makes them expendable.
Yo what the fuck is this
tfw you accidentally hit or step on your pet
tfw you purposefully hit or step on your pet
>tfw you apologize to an animal who can't even understand you while crying and hoping they are okay
Simple question, what quick and easy tips does anyone have to make a cat like and feel comfortable with me quickly? I feel like making noises and rubbing thumb with fingers doesn't really help. Lol I'm out of ideas
