What's the best bait for foxes? I have a chicken problem that needs to be disposed of. I tried cat food, what originally attracted him into the trail cam, but he hasn't been back since. I've been setting a 220 conibear in a bucket set.

How long has it been since you saw the fox? Cat food should work fine... I would give it a little longer, he might just be suspicious of the area since there's something new there now.

If cat food doesn't work you could try something else meaty with a strong scent, like vienna sausages.

Also, just curious (not looking to start any shit,) what do you intend to do with the fox once you've trapped him?

Going to displace him somewhere far away or are you going to kill him?

If you have a chicken problem, why are you bothering to lure foxes in to eat them? You could just eat them yourself or sell them probably.

I live in Northern Europe if that helps. I've received some packages from Japan and the US recently and I guess I want to rule out bed bugs or something like that that might have hitched a ride.

Hey /an/, I don't come here much but I had a question.

I'll soon find myself moving from Philadelphia to Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Along with me I'll be bringing my cockatiel.

What are some guidelines on getting my bird ready for travel to a new country? Also, which airlines allow pets (preferably in the cabin, unless it's a better idea not to)? I don't have to leave from Philly per se, as long as I get on an airline that allows birds on board.

So I'm pretty autistic about this whole thing because this bird is literally...

Well importing cockatiels is illegal in some countries because they're worried you're capturing them wild from Australia. So the first step would be to determine if you can get your bird through customs.

There might be a quarantine issue if they are allowed. Parrots carry psittacosis which is transmissible to humans.

Carrying the bird in the cabin is the best thing. I don't know if you can though. I remember reading a book about Alex the African Grey parrot by Irene Pepperburg. She said...

I'm posting this cuz 50,000 little lives died in terror, pain and confusion. Dying is bad enough, but its such a horror to think that the last thing any living creature has to see is so many of its own helpless, panicked, terrified and suffering.

My point is that its just wrong. Moreover, that it just seems unnatural to have that many animals captive in one place at one time.

I understand that its an accident and the rancher has suffered a loss. But shouldn't there be some added liability if you are going to take responsibility for the humane care of...

1 MB,
I've been thinking about getting another cat to keep my current one company. I live in a 2 bedroom 1254sqft apartment with a roommate (who is cool with getting a second cat) and adopted a cat 4 months ago who is around a year old now.

She's very friendly, runs to greet you at the door, not afraid of strangers at all, sits in your lap willingly, and love, love, LOVES to play. Which is the issue. My roommate and I both work around 7-9hrs a day, so my cat is by herself at home most of the time. I've spent a ridiculous amount of money on toys, but she still wants to play nonstop whenever I'm home. Her favorite toys are the interactive ones, I guess. But if I'm not playing with her, she'll sometimes attack my legs as I walk by or when I'm sitting at the dining table. She's ripped threads out of a number of my sweaters and pants this way. Luckily, she doesn't seem otherwise destructive (yet).

I was thinking that I could get a second cat/kitten and maybe that would help burn her energy and keep her company while we're gone.

Drawbacks are that I don't really have anywhere to put another litter box, and one of my cats in the past reacted very badly to being introduced to another cat (literally scared the shit out of that cat, and she became super paranoid even though the new cat was super chill and didn't react to her at all). I'd also feel terrible if either my current cat or new cat got bullied by the other one, or if I had to return the new cat. My current cat also has a tendency to bite when she doesn't want to be touched, and her canines are pretty long (they stick out of her mouth a bit).

Thoughts? Suggestions? Advice?

keep playing with her and spending positive time with her when you're home

get her used to having her paws handled and start trimming her nails so you don't have to worry about her accidentally pulling apart your clothes

do a little reading on cat enrichment. you may be able to find some toys that require your cat to do some thinking/problem solving that work well for her. the point of toys like this are to keep a critter occupied while you're not there. just be wary of anything that teaches her to rip open/dig for rewards as that may not be the...

Thanks for the advice! I've been trying to trim her claws, but she usually only lets me clip one before trying to bite me, even when I try to sneak it while she's sleeping, haha. I'll keep trying I suppose.

I have one toy with holes where she has to pull out the balls/mouse/etc out of it. She seems to like it, but I pretty sure she's done with it in about 30min max. Are there any toys you know of that might keep her occupied?

Dude, you're her friend. My wife kept on talking about getting a friend for our cat. We did it, and now we have two cats. It turns out cat #1 didn't want a friend. It further turns out cat#2 is very clever and has managed to take over the house. Now cat #1 only comes home to eat once a day. Photo cat #2.

Have you guys had any problems with tank backgrounds confusing your reptiles?

I recently upgraded my leopard gecko's cage with a new hide and a background, and at first he was just more active because he was freaked out about his new environment. Now, he's used to his new hide, but he's constantly pawing at the back of his tank where the background is and peering up at it.

Is he just a weirdo or do reptiles generally have problems with backgrounds?

I've never had a pet but adopted a six months old cat about two days ago after dweling on the subject for about a year. I've heard a lot about how a pet should help lonely people and/or suffering from depression. Should have been great but so far it has given me nothing but anxiety. I'm not feeling attached and have no idea what to do with her.

Everyone knows I have a cat already but how bad would it look if I gave up and brought her back to the shelter or something?

You have to give it more than 2 days dude. The cat is anxious too and needs time to adjust to his new home. Once he has done that, he is more likely to be affectionate and stuff which is what commonly helps with depression. You also need time to adjust. Give it 2 or 3 weeks. You owe yourself and the cat that much

I rescued new pupper last night. She was quite timid and still is, but has walmed to me pretty decently in a day. I went to bed last night thinking everything was great as she wasn't whining or anything. When I woke up she had got into a bag of treats I left out (shit on my behalf I know) and also thrown her toy around. To be honest that's not too bad, but is there anyway I can further help prevent her getting so bored when she's alone?

I have two dogs, both pound mutts. Great with my daughter and kids in general. Once we got the 2nd dog, the first dog became dog aggressive. We are dog sitting for our neighbor, and tried to introduce them and dog 1 was aggressive. I put dog 2 in his crate and dog 1 was fine with the neighbors dog. So the root of the aggression is being around dog 2. This also manifests when they are in the backyard fence, and other dogs or kids run by and they bark. Dog 1 will bark and snap at dog 2 as they both bark at the kids and dogs running by. What to do?
