You really need to get two or more. Rats are so social, keeping them on their own is cruel. Two rats will be much much happier and owning two rats really isn't much more expensive.

I am planning to get a dog in the near future! I live in an apartment and work from home. This will not be my first dog, but It will be my first dog in an apartment building.

I guess I have two concerns:
1. that I will get a very noisy dog that upsets the other tenants in my building
2. that I will get a dog that is upset by living in a major city with lots of people.

Does anybody have any advice on where to start and what to look for?

Thanks!

For #1:
Avoid; Beagles, basset hounds, Jack r. terrier, keeshond, maltese, basically most terriers and hounds and toy breeds.
Research on google, top quiet breeds. That's the reason I got a Shiba Inu.

For #2:
You really just need to socialize the dog very well by taking it to those kinds of places OFTEN. Socialize that little shitter from day one as much as possible, then it'll be smooth sailing.
I'd recommend getting a lab as they are very friendly, or a goldie.
I wouldn't...

Once you've decided on a breed, you can use this:
(For US) http://marketplace.akc.org/puppies
or
(For CAD) http://www.ckc.ca/Choosing-a-Dog/PuppyList/Default.aspx
To search for reputable breeders.
These kennel club sites can also help you learn more about breeds you are interested in and you can pick your ideal.
for example;
An apartment dog would ideally be a smaller breed so it doesn't feel enclosed in a tighter space than a large breed would.
Having a small dog also means less food to feed, so you'd save money.
And also means you don't have to go on hour long runs just to get their appropriate amount of energy.
So let's say, by using this reliable link:
http://www.ckc.ca/en/Choosing-a-Dog/Choosing-a-Breed/All-Dogs
and we choose an American Eskimo (miniature)
Very trainable, though they need exercise, not sure if that'll be another problem.
Requires a lot of grooming
But they are very lovable and loving dogs. So they'd be easy to socialize.

any other questions, bb?

I was lucky enough to end up with a dog that just plain doesn't bark much, but he was just a babby when I got him, so I just left a note on my door saying, "I got a new puppy and we are working on crate-training. I work from x-to-x but my hours are flexible; if he's making any noise and it's totally unbearable, please call [my number] and I will be home ASAP. Thanks!" I never got...

I want to donate some food and toys to my local animal shelter. I have a budget of 100 dollars. How far can I stretch it? where can I go that might be willing to add extra food and stuff?
4 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.

Ask your local shelter what they need. Some even accept old clothes or handmade dog beds, but shelters typically have some sort of 'wish list' of things they need the most. Also ask about what they won't accept.
>>
>>2035269
That works.
Also, donating the money itself tends to work well, considering they know exactly where to spend it, and tend to get stuff at a discounted price.
>>
In our shelter most usefull donations are by order:

1-Dry Food
2-Food Cans
3-Lesmania Medication
4-Actual money to buy more expensive things that are not obtainable with donations (f.e a clothes washing machine), medicines, vets, mandatory shots, chip and sterilisation of our cats and dogs.
5-Old Clothes and towels and cat beds (dogs love to destroy that stuf whrn playing together, and most cats hate to share)
6-Toys for cats and dogs.
7-Anything is welcome.

Also some vets donate their time and do shots, visits and sterilisations for free. We...

Okay so basically I got a kitten about 2weeks ago, she is 7 or 8 weeks old now. (Pic related)
The first day I got her she was quite timid as expected, hiding from me and such so I slowly introduced her to the whole house over the following week. I've been socialising her lots and trying to have friends play and cuddle with her while they're over and she has opened up a lot.

So the problem I've been having is that sometimes she lashes out and starts biting me whilst making 'woofing' noises like a sharp exhale out her mouth.
When she starts...

This is playing and it's normal and will decrease in intensity as she matures.

So I'm not an expert, BUT, this is what I used to do with kittens over three months old (cause I feel like anything younger is a little silly to try and teach yet).

When my kitten would bite too hard, I would try to startle him with a sharp 'hey!'. If that didn't work, I would then scruff him-not hard! Just enough to get him to stop what he was doing, then let go. If THAT didn't work, then I would use a squirt bottle (that you always have with you at this stage because kittens are crazy and like to jump on dangerous stoves and woodstoves) and...

Any veterinarians here? my cat was diagnosed with pneumonia, stayed two days in the clinic and when I got him back his leg was soft kinda like a inanimate plush doll, I waited 3 days and took him there again asking for a explanation and they told me that due to his lack of oxygen from the pneumonia his leg didn't get enough blood or some shit like that. Does that make any sense or I'm just getting bullshited

Post close up pic of stem. Chance it could be a faded panny (psychoactive). Highly likely it's just a standard horse-shit mushroom.

On second thought, that really doesn't look like an edible or psychoactive mushroom. Don't eat it.

Can a green cheek conure live in the same cage as a canary, considering they will both be babies?

Do conure have different temperaments depending on their color mutation? I'm deciding between a cinnamon or turquoise.

I know there's a bird thread but everyone is too focused on the Dutchman.

is it possible? yea anythings possible
different temperaments based on color? it has more to do with bloodline, but individuals of a species always vary

if you want to do it, then do it and tell us how it works out. worse case is conure will kill the finch. finches are shit tier anyway- nothing of value will be lost.

my dog died two weeks ago. she was a shihtzu, slightly larger than average and 2 years old.

i remember walking her, everythings fine. about an hour later it started. she threw up and lost bowel control, and then stopped being able to walk. her breathing was rough and her eyes were rolling to the back of her head. i took her to the emergency clinic as fast as i could but by the time i got there she was already half dead. they told me they tried to bring her back 4 times but on the 5th she gave in

they said its most likely posioning. what exactly could it have been?...

Did it eat anything on the walk? Some "people" will leave poisoned food for animals to eat along sidewalks and such. Could have also been accidental like it ate a poisonous plant

My cat really wants to go outside, but I'm afraid he'd never come back. What do?
He grew up in a barn but he hasn't been outside since I adopted him back in mid-2015. Occasionally I'll hold him, go outside and walk around a little bit, but I won't let him down. I live right next to some busy roads, what happens if he gets squashed by a car?
Pic related, my cat.

Play with him more. Distract him with treats until he settles down. Maybe get a cat harness and take him for walks. As annoying as it his is now, wouldn't you feel terrible if he got run over or eaten by coyotes or never came back?

Cats always come back, unless you treat them bad.
