I need your creative brains!

I am a vet nurse/tech starting puppy training classes in our practice based around dogs having fun at the vets and habituation towards equipment, restraint and handling for veterinary procedures like clipping nails, examining teeth and ears, injections, blood sampling to promote happy stress free vet visits, so the dogs aren't scared and aggressive when they come in.
Now I need a name for these classes.
We were going to call them "love your vet" classes but a local trainer has a similar name "love dog training"...

/an/, how many of you guys live on the east where this blizzard is happening?
How much snow have you gotten from it?
If you don't live in an area affected by this blizzard, whats the most snow youve ever seen from a single storm?

We've got ~30 inches of snow out here. I'm in the Frederick MD area which, while not hit the hardest, has been pounded.

Anyone live in that area in west Virginia that got 40 inches of snow? Got any pics?

How much will a flock of budgies fuck up my life? I don't have a house. I live in a rented apartment. I rent it from my parents, and they don't really care if I wreck it completely, however it's quite small (two rooms).

I currently have a female budgie and want her to be happy and shit, from what I now know budgies are very very very social.

>they don't really care if I wreck it completely
how does that make any sense?
Anyway, what do you mean by a "flock"?

Also the answer depends on how anal you are about cleaning. What are you like? if you clean everything constantly normally it wont be too awful.

They wanted to give it to me but I insisted on renting. So while it's not technically mine, in reality I can do what I please.

Flock would be, I dunno. Two-three pairs of birds? I guess they'll breed and given how fast budgies multiply I'll end up with a thousand in a year.

I typically vacuum everything in the morning and before bed since I fucking hate duts, and scrub out budgie poo with wet wipes when I see it.

Is cleaning and feeding them 90% of caring for them? I thought I'll...

Toxoplasmosis though. Not really an issue if the cat is indoors and isn't eating wild rats.

Still, when you have toxoplasmosis, and you get sick, it does more and more damage to your brain while your immune system is compromised.

what's the difference between a melanistic and a black cat?

and is it true that melanistic animals are more disease resitant?
>I only found a study regarding melanism and disease with insects
2 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

Melanism is just the overabundance of melanin. Melanism has developed multiple, different times. For example, black jaguar's have at least one mutated MC1R gene to thank. Domestic black cats have 2- deletion in the ASIP gene to thank. I'm not sure why exactly it makes them a little more disease resistance though. Here's some stuff for you to read if you're interested.

hey, my dumbass parents let their cat outside during this fucking snowstorm and now they can't figure out where he is or how to get him out

There's no tracks, and there's a deck right outside the door that it's possible for the cats to go under so we think he's probably under there

We don't have any tuna to lure him out, only chicken breast, and we don't have anything loud enough to scare him out

We also aren't 100% sure where they enter from, but most of it is blocked off by a wooden grate (and like a foot of snow...

I have two cats. Both are female. Both were adopted. Both the same age and type of cat. I believe one is slightly mentally slow either due to past owner experience or natural birth defect.

I was gone for a 3-day vacation and the other cat (the one without mental issues) was acting more hostile towards the other than usual; going after her after I saw the first assault and then again after pushing her away the second time.

The one WITH the mental issues seems to have trouble with figuring out I don't want her getting onto my bed and other surfaces. Yes, I know...

So it's probably cancer then?

My roommate stepped on my kitties tail. After making him pay for the vet visit, the tail wasn't broken, just soft tissue damage. It scabbed up considerably and now it just looks like a small but notable cut going across the tail. Is there any cream or ointment I can put on it to aid the healing process?

I think it's best not to put anything on it. It will probably heal on it's own, and if you put something on it, your cat will just lick it off again. So if you put something on it, make sure it is something that isn't dangerous when ingested.
