Alright /an/, can you explain to me what happened here?

>>2029378 Without actually seeing the interaction, there's not much I can tell you.
Several factors might have led to the bite. The dog may have been stressed about being at the groomer. Lots of dogs get stressed/afraid about it and they can smell that stress and it can make them uneasy. This could contribute to the dog being on edge.
There could have been something small or something everyone missed that upset or scared the dog when they walked in.
The dog could have a particular aversion/phobia of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2029385 We reviewed the footage; to make a long story short the dog just walked in, saw my mum, and attacked. She's doing alright, thankfully, if not a bit shaken. She's owned dogs her whole life and really hasn't had a negative interaction, but I know she's going to be much more wary when around strange dogs--not to say that she hasn't always been. Just that it's probably going to be even more ingrained now.
The owner was freaking out, saying that her dog never hurt anyone, never bit anyone... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2029393 Well honestly the owner being so freaked out sounds more like she was honestly just shocked and upset her dog would do something like that, than her trying to cover it up.
>pent up energy+separation anxiety could that potentially cause an attack? Not likely, but it could contribute to overall stress which could in turn have pushed the dog over the edge when it was triggered by something else.
That said, it's not fair to just claim the owner is the problem without... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Anyone have any help or advice for finding a missing cat?
He's not usually out for longer than a few hours and he's been gone for around three days. Me and my family have posted stuff all over Facebook and we feel its been enough time to start going round the neighborhood tomorrow asking people to look in garages/under porches etc, plus looking in areas we know he patrols.
It was extremely windy and rainy new years eve when he went missing as well as the fireworks. Im not sure if he's been injured or spooked and ran away but him being away this long is worrying.
Any tips for getting a cat to stop being a dick about using the litter box?
>health checks out, vet said she's fine and it's behavioral >9 yr old female, spayed >litter box is always clean >tried: FeliWay (spray & plug in), olbas oil, vinegar, citrus, aluminum foil, double stick tape, slew of diff enzyme cleaners, Ssscat, & replacing the carpet

They live right next to me and they had a cat and a dog they also have two children. They refuse to let the cat in even though its theirs. And they took the leash off the dog (a big one might I add) to roam the neighborhood and don't let him in anymore. The dog used to hate me but after I started to pet it and give it attention he likes me. Sammy this amazing cat is out in the cold for the past 3 months and ive been feeding it and the cat begs to go back in their house and they kick her out. I love this cat so much. My family has 4 cats (The dad cat the mom cat and 2 of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My cat is hopping from place to place, has obvious dental problem signs, and I just found out he has fleas.
I can't afford anything. My rich parents lost their job and I am the one in charge of the cat now since I live across the country for college. We don't have the funds to take care of him like we used to. I honestly don't know what to do.
I don't want to see him in pain anymore and I don't want to itch from these fleas. It's a Sunday and I can't do anything till tomorrow and it is driving me crazy. I feel like shit.
if anyone remembers, i posted a thread about a breeder wanting to visit me and my dog a while ago, and i told that i would post the updates about what happened.
Well, yesterday he notified me that he wants to come today.
Of course my dog just woke up from an all nighter sleep when he arrived, so he was kinda hyperactive, as he was not yet excercised, and i'm not sure if it was because he recognized the breeder, or just simply smelled the other dogs' scent on his clothes. Well anyways, he took a few pictures, and played with him a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2030272 don't squirt; it could go wrong and get in their eye. Not fun for kitties. Just a slice of lemon works for me. I touched one to my cats nose once and he went fucking wild and wouldn't let me near him for half an hour.
I have a male pit bull purebred. He's a pretty chill guy most of the time, but whenever he sees another dog, he starts screaming and freaking out; even if the other dog isn't doing anything to him, or reacting to him at all.
How do I get him to calm down around other dogs? Or should I just take him to a trainer?
What a fucking horrible cat, biting like that. Disgraceful little piece of trash. Chuck it outside and lock the fucking door. Damned if I'd have a horrid creature like that living under my roof, eating shit I pay for it to eat. Give it a week sleeping outside where it can't hide on a nice warm paid for blanket and see how it gets on. You were only playing around and it really went for you.
