I have five baby mystery snails but recently, I've noticed these little spike-like growths on the end of this one's shell. What is it? What does it mean?

I have a chihuahua mix (most prominently with beagle, another "vocal" breed), and she's incredibly quiet, I never even heard her bark until I'd had her for a few weeks. She did howl a little her first night away from her old home, but besides that, nothing. She whines to communicate things like hunger and needing to go outside, though.

If you can't keep it in a warm, quiet, environment, don't get one. Anything below 75~ will send it into hibernation, which is fatal for domesticated hedgehogs. Also, they have shit awful eyesight and rely mostly on hearing and smell. If there's loud noises often, it'll constantly be scared shitless.
Also, they shit. A lot. Especially when they run, so you'll be cleaning out their cages often if you want to be a good owner.
You also probably need to consider that you'll need to get it out just about every day or else it won't warm up to...

I asked this on adv but figured I might get more responses here. So, I'm looking to move from Eugene (Oregon) to Portland in the next year or so. I'm looking for an apartment without breed restrictions on dogs, because I have a pitbull/husky mix that is almost a year old and I cannot part with. anyone have any luck or experience with this? he's extremely well behaved and friendly, so if it's a "meet and greet" type requirement that would be perfectly fine

I am diagnosed with BPD but haven't gone to therapy for a while. would getting...

Getting it certified might be difficult but it is something to look into.

Also, when you are talking to the apartment people, say it is a husky mix. Don't mention the pit bull because many apartments will not let "dangerous breeds" live there. When I got my GSD and terrier mix the lady in the office wrote him down as only terrier mix so I could keep him because she knew me.

The problem with this is that huskies are generally on the no-no list as well

Post pics of dog, I'm sure we can find a breed that is similar looking? Take a pic where he doesn't look like a pit or husky? Yes, I'm telling you to lie.

scruffing-a-cat.jpg
82 KB,
cat scruffing? Is it good or bad? I've always picked my cats up by the scruff of their neck and it's never been a problem. They don't meow or cry, they don't struggle, they don't stop purring if they were and I don't carry them around like that or anything, I just pick them up that way.

Is it a bad thing? Do any of you pick your cats up this way? Whenever family see me do this they gasp and call me cruel. Even my local vet says scruffing should only be used as a restraining technique and even then only as a last resort. What are your thoughts?

If I'm casually moving him around, no, I just pick him up like normal. The two times he clawed something I scruffed him to make him stop immediately and redirected to his scratching post.

The other times I've scruffed him is when he darted out the front door after a bird with a broken wing that was fluttering outside, and putting him into his carrier [he likes it, but he doesn't like going into it when he isn't ready. Sometimes I'm in a hurry, sorry bud].

Why do you feel the need to scruff them if you are simply picking them up or moving...

For an adult cat, I never pick them up by the scruff alone. It's a lot of weight to be put on the excess skin of their neck that you're pinching. Not only is it painful, but it can cause injuries, especially if your cat is large.

I do scruff my cats as I'm picking them up, but I support their body too. I have to do this because they are somewhat feral, and people give me the same shit too. Scruffing alone usually doesn't hurt unless there is some other underlying issue, like ear infection/mites,...

>Why do you feel the need to scruff them if you are simply picking them up or moving them?

Maybe it's strange but it feels natural. Also, when I pick them up by the belly sometimes they groan like I picked them up too hard. I generally grab them by the scruff and raise them up to my chest where I sort of cradle them like a baby (maybe that's weird, whatever). They lay there, purr and relax while I move them to wherever I'm headed.
