What the fuck do I do, /an/ !?

My Mother's cat is a vindictive bitch. She goes out of her way to piss on the stove, spray the door, the microwave, etc.. Right in front of her - Mom says their eyes meet as a matter of fact.

She said that she's tempted to put the cat down; and I said that we can do that only if we put the dog down (her dog) because of all the shit he does. - it shut her up but I don't know if she was talking out of anger, or if I'll come home one day and the cat will be gone.

Is there a way I can make a bitch-cat be less...

Firstly, drop the anthropomorphism. The cat does not do this to be mean. There is a reason, but it is not to be vindictive at all.
Is she an outside cat, indoor outdoor, or indoor? Is she an only cat, and how many litterboxes are there? And, is she fixed?
There may also be a health reason. While UTI's in female cats aren't as common in male cats, she may have an issue with her kidneys, so get her a checkup asap.

I used the anthromorphisim because that's how she's been described. She has a UTI and is taking anti-biotics and is almost down to her last bit in the bottle. I know she's trying to tell us something, but my Mother is hellbent on a love/hate. She also (the cat) goes out of her way to attack people, and if you stop her from pissing on something or whatever she doesn't agree with- she'll attack the dog and the other cats.

You should have 2 litter boxes per cat just about, as cats are territorial and aren't fans of sharing litter boxes. She may also not be a fan of the litter anymore as well. But, she may just be spraying because of her UTI which was probably caused by low quality food. Switch her to wet food if you haven't already.

I have cat that has been mostly an outdoor cat for the past 12 years. After he went missing for the third time and nearly starving to death because he had gotten himself trapped in a neighbors basement; I decided that it was time to make him an indoor cat.

The past 3 months have been one annoyance after another as he doesn't seem to want to get used to being indoors all day. We have a small house so he doesn't have much space to do any excercise and I am starting to notice he has some kind of limp when he walks. He spends most of the day sleeping so I don't...

build him some shelves for climbing, get a window box, and/or take him on nice walks on the leash

interact with him more. play with him. get the limp checked out at the vet, he may have hurt something trying to get out or underestimating a jump.

>>2079120
Just ignore what people are saying. You wouldn't let a toddler roam around the neighborhood unsupervised; you are doing the right thing by making the safest decision for your cat. Just ignore him when he is trying to get out; if you fuss about him and try to redirect him he'll see that his bullshit is working.

We had the same thing. Most of our cats were inside only, but my roommate had one cat he let out. He went missing for 2 weeks and then came back and gave everyone fleas. We transitioned him...

If you have a patio or porch area, you could consider building a "catio" to give him some safe space to enjoy the outdoors.

Hi /an/, I come to you for help. One of my dogs, a Yorkshire Terrier, sort of climbed into the house next to mine. There's another dog on the other house's roof, I think it's a pitbull. It's been a few hours now and he just won't listen when I call for him, he's just there on the other roof mounting the pitbull.

I am desperate, no one answers the door on the other house, and I'm afraid that if they see my dog they will throw him out on the street. I live in a shitty part of the city and my dog is dumb as shit, he would be immediately...

What other good animal related shows exist?

The Lion Guard isn't the worst thing in the world but I don't really care for it. Are you looking for cartoons and comedy of sorts or are you also looking for more 'documentary' type shows? I'm not really sure about shows, but there's a bunch of good movies like Watership Down(also has a tv show i never watched), Plague Dogs, Felidae, Animals of Farthing Woods, the russian Jungle Book is really good, etc.

As for the documentary type, Big Cat Diary will always have a place in my heart. Meerkat Manor was also pretty popular.

354 KB,
I am learning how to start a small garden and plan on building several beds. I am planning on rotating crops. I know that I should not grow the same family of crops in two consecutive years. However, is it still ok to grow different kinds of crops in the same family in the same year? For example, is it ok to grow radishes and then broccoli in succession in the same year?

>>2078997
it's better to not have related crops on the same plot in consecutive years. Pests often target the whole family. Plant curcubits next year, and one of the nightshades the year after. That gives you a good enough rotation that your pest species can't get well established.

Also look into raised beds or straw bale gardening as another way of keeping pests in check.
>>
>>2078997
Hate to be that assailed but in my experience polycultures mitigate pest problems.

Though coming from arural background I've come to find if say for example cover crop brassicas are being grown within a couple miles of you no amount of rotating will deter brassica pests.

It looks a lot like pencil cactus, thanks! I've never heard of it before, never been interested in succulents or plants in general.

Can someone confirm/inform me more from their experience on this? forums gardenweb com / discussions / 1825286 / beware-of-the-pencil-cactus

It says there that euphorbia's sap is very toxic and dangerous, I wonder what's the chance of even touching it if the plant is sitting somewhere in a corner of your window and is hardly ever bothered there.

If you have a partner in the uk why did you put the cat in a cattery?

You should let them rehome the cat so it can have a stable life with people who don't adopt a cat without knowing if they can stay in the same country as it.

Can /an/ ID this rat? Another one jumped off immediately but this one stayed. I thought maybe it was trying to be still so not to be noticed, but then i hit the thing its standing on and it just turned around like it was going to fucking fight back, so i hit it off of the thing where it fell into bushes. Could it have something wrong with it or was it just a fearless cunt?

Looks like a young brown rat - they can be stupid-brave before they learn a bit more sense.

Like >>2078787 said, it's just a brown rat. If you think it's anything more fancy, then we need to know a location first.

Though chances of it being anything other than a brown rat are pretty nil
