Hey /an/, I have five kittens that I need to get rid of.
How do I find homes for them? None of my friends want one and I don't want to take them to a kill shelter or hand them over to strangers.

good luck determining who those people are

you can try selling them for more than a lab will pay for them. Go to price is $50 but goodluck selling paperless, unvetted kittens

Chances are you'll be holding onto the kittens for weeks/months

It could be a male bee. During certain times of the year the females of the hive kick the males out because males do not collect pollen and thus do not contribute to the hive.

Their sole function is to produce sperm to impregnate queens. Once that has been accomplished they either leave the hive and freeze/starve to death, or stay and be stung to death.

how do i tell the difference between a golden pupper vs a lab pupper. mine is 4 months old and as he grew i started to question whether or not he's actually a golden retriever. the guy who sold me this dog said he is golden, but he hasn't given me any pedigree creditentials from the parents since then and he sold it to me sick, claiming that he was in good health.

now he's a healthy young dog but his fur hasn't grown a lot, but his fur on the back and on the legs did get a bit more darker yellowish as opposed to the rest of his fur which is still almost...

So, the nictitating membrane is showing in my cat's eyes, when he opens his eyes all the way thr membrane leaves, but he hardly does that and his eyes are normally closed. He also has crusty discharge that builds in the corners of his eyes.
I'm going to keep an eye on it for a week and clean the discharge with wet cotten balls, and if it doesn't clear up I plan to take him to the vet, but I wanted to know what /an/'s opinion on this was. I know it has to be irritating him, but if it's something that will clear up rather quickly on its own, I'd...

never heard of this happening, probably some genetic condition, could be allergy related?

This is the first that he has had the discharge, I thought the eyelids were just a genetic thing but now I'm worried since I decided to look it up online.
>>
>>2161195
yeah, it's not a genetic thing.

we get a lot of children posting here that can't even google a thing before giving their expert opinion.

but it's also a pretty common and generic symptom, could be a lot of different things. If it were my cat I'd probably just let it be for a while unless it gets worse or doesn't show any signs of getting better.

then it's time for a vet. but most likely this is just an infection.

So, I got a juvenile betta fish a few weeks ago, and I have two adults already. The cup I got it in said it was a boy, so I assumed it was. However, my two adult male betta fish have blown bubble nests, while this one has not. Instead, my juvenile has to long black stripes. I'm sure it's not anxious, as it shows no other signs of that. I think it might be a girl, and those are breeding stripes. It would correlat with the bubble nests, and I've heard stories of petco mislabling the betta fish before. What do you guys think? Pic is fish, sorry for the quality.

generally speaking, it's females that develop stripes and that LOOKS like a female BUT the stripes being displayed there are 'stress stripes' bot breeding stripes. Stress is horizontal, breeding is vertical. Males can show stress stripes if they're light enough. Also both males and females blow bubblenests, males are just a lot more likely to do it

look at your juvies underside. If you see a white spot, you've got a girl. Look up 'egg spot'

No clue but my uncle feeds his cattle apples he gets from orchids and brewery that is not suitable for sale.
He gets a ton of veggies that not suitable for supermarkets.

All this shit is sold cheaply, the vegetables tend to be a in weird shape or look weird but are fine.
It is just people would not buy them.

Yeah, I've seen articles on this. Apples that aren't shiny enough or something comes up too.

Really, it's supermarkets trying to be picky and not have to buy too much produce so they say they only pick the best because that's what their customers demand.

Hey /an/ I'm wondering if you can help me out I keep buying 60 watt Neodymium UVB bulbs for my bearded dragon. Obviously they're really expensive and I'm getting pretty annoyed because they blow out really fast.
