Does it bother anyone else that the new Jurassic Park movie doesn't have feathered dinosaurs?

No, I was by far more bothered by that the movie sucked. What the fuck was up with plotasaurus rex? It apparently had all these amazing abilities it used exactly once for the sake of the plot. It didn't even look any cooler than any other theropod.

Hey, /an/.
I'm beginning to wonder if cats can feel legitimate unconditional love for their owner, or something similar. Is there any scientific evidence to prove such a thing?

My cat spends most of her time laying on me, and purring like a jet engine. Just wondering what motivates this.

of course not.

science is the application of math to objects.

love is not an object nor is it amenable to math.

Actually, with the relatively recent developments in psychology and neurobiology, OP's curiosity is warranted.

>Argument 1: a cat is meant to gorge and then fast, so should be fed twice a day

>Argument 2: a cat is meant to catch lots of tiny animals throughout the day, so should be fed small amounts multiple times

Who's right?

nature doesn't intend.

cats eat when food shows up. Sometimes that's several times a day. Sometimes it's never.

This.

How you feed your cat really depends on the animal. My cats do well on a grazing diet, they don't over eat and are a good weight. My friend's cat needs to be kept on a schedule because he over eats if given the opportunity and needs to lose weight. Do what works or your vet instructs, not what some random person on the internet tells you to do.

Female cows are a lot more docile than males (AKA: bulls). It is possible that the ostrich can intimidate a female cow because they generally do not want to fight
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rejDi1u31NI

However, male cows (AKA: bulls) are a very different story. They would not only take the challenge, but destroy the cocky bird bold enough to challenge it.

In a general situation, maybe the ostrich could spook the cow and scare it off.
In a situation where both animals are determined to hurt each other the cow would obliterate the ostrich.

What do you do when an animal's been killed by a car? I was visiting some family today, and when I was leaving, I noticed there was a lump on the road that hadn't been there a few hours ago. I was pretty sure it was a dead cat. So about a mile down the road, I decided to turn around, get out of my car, and pick it's body off the road with a grocery bag I had lying around. I left it sitting on the ground next to the sidewalk. It was pretty late at night, but should I have left a message at my local animal control center about it? It didn't seem right to just...

It doesn't matter unless it's not actually dead, or is something large enough to be a hazard to vehicles.

>>2025093
You are better off leaving it in the road for the scavengers or other carrion animals to deal with it. You just left it in a bag by the road? Why did you even fuck with it to begin with you silly faggot?
>>
>>2025109
>leave it on the road so more animals get hit trying to eat it

Moving it off the road is fine and should be encouraged, honestly.
Putting it in a bag is weird though. Now people will think someone is killing cats and dumping them.

Hey bugguy, welcome back.
Merry Christmas btw.

Also, why not? I can say it'd be the best option if your pet was sick or already dying, and to make it optimal, have a vet come to your house for the euthanization.

Hey /an/

I'm looking to adopt an alleged AKC husky but the situation looks kind of fishy.

The guy speaks broken english and wants to ship me the puppy using a foreign shipping service.

He's not asking any money for the dog and saying i will only be billed for the shipping costs via 3rd party billing.

Has anyone on here had any experience with buying dogs without ever meeting the person?

apparently so. I'm not entirely sure why him being a christian is either relevant or why that should make me trust him automatically.

I even asked him for the AKC breed numbers etc and registration info but he is refusing.

Ahh too bad. I'll keep looking elsewhere.

What is this, /an/?

I found a few of them today when I was cleaning up my room.

A few years ago I used to play hide and seek with my dog, I would hide somewhere while he was distracted and start calling his name. I'm not entirely certain that counts, but it made him freak the fuck out until he found me.

>>2022553
When I was little, I would hide somewhere my dog didn't normally look, like behind the couch. My dad would call out "Where's (my name)?" Over and over to my dog. He would run through every room looking everywhere until he found me. He always looked so excited when he did.

I'm kind of sad that I didn't play more with him when he was a young pup. Best I can do is chill on the floor next to him while he dozes off. I love that old fart.

Hey guys, this may be a bit of /adv/ but it's mostly pet related.

My dog is sick with a serious virus, and my girlfriend and myself have been doing everything we can, but it seems some days he does better, then suddenly decays a bit more. I know the time is coming, but my girlfriend wants to continue finding new medication to help him, he's got progressive paralysis on all 4 legs and obviously cannot stand up.

He is able to drink and eat just fine and everything other than that, the real problem I am facing is that I am afraid to make a decision because...

We had to put our family dog we had for 10 years to sleep a few days ago and it doesn't feel that different. I'm such an asshole. Has this happened to anyone else?

A few days ago we put my 15 year old beagle to sleep after he entered organ failure. I was sad the day of, and actually cried (well, more like teared up that night after I saw his collar with his nametag on it

But nothing really feels that different now that it's a few days after his death. Given that he was a beagle he was already pretty low energy, and the past year or two with his age,...

>for the past few years he has also regularly used the bathroom in the house, seemingly out of boredom, so a lot of times I would come home to a piss and shit-stench filled house

you're relieved that he's gone because you don't come home to that anymore ie. a burden has been lifted. you love him and miss him, but you're more happy that you can live your life without worrying about the shit to come home to.

in my opinion that's completely normal.
