>>2018287 get a proper tank or tub. rule of thumb for mantis tank sizes is lenght and width = 2x the mantid's length. height = 3x mantid's length.
give it a lot of twigs to climb around on, they don't like staying on the ground. spray the tank once a day so it can drink from the water drops. they are not picky eaters, just throw in some flies or crickets.
A friend's cat very recently broke her leg and he asked me to watch her today while he was working and his lady friend had to go out. It's heartbreaking to see her grumpy and uncomfortable but she's still adorable. Hopefully we can raise the money for her to get surgery and speed up her recovery.
Pics of your pets being cute while recovering from injury/surgery?
My kitten was the cutest in his little cone after his balls were chopped off, but I felt so bad when he got frustrated. He didn't have to wear it very long though, fortunately. Hopefully that big kitty feels better soon, she looks so unhappy!
>>2018086 Thanks! He needed extra snuggles to feel better about his situation. I had never seen a cloth cone before that either, and let me tell you, it was WAY easier. He was really tiny at the time, and none of the plastic cones my vet had even fit him. This one was extra convenient because I could just flip in the other way when he wanted to eat/drink (he couldn't really figure out how to wrangle it with it up normally) and then just flip it back when he was done.
Aw, has she been picking at her cast? Can she... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ideally, though, you should look into alternative procedures that will sterilize a dog without the negative health effects of a neuter/spay. For males the most popular is a vasectomy, and for females you commonly see a tubal ligation or ovary-sparing spay. These alternative procedures can be done at any age and are generally safer than a traditional neuter/spay.
Does anyone have experience raising button quail? I have been thinking about buying some eggs online and hatching just a few, but I've never done that before. How hard is it? Are there any recommended websites to buy their eggs?

>>2012822 That's my problem, I'm ok with a mutt. however I'm not ok with a mutt that leaves too much to the imagination. > What breed were its parents? > Is this mutt off the street? > Is it just another fucked up genetic mistake that will die if I walk it more than a block?
Think for just a moment for what you have just explained to /a/. Your cat has a medical condition- however small or large; and you have the treatment. You PAID money for a vet to examine your cat, and got their professional advice at a markup. Your only concern is cat tantrums which will eventually fade as it becomes routine.
>>2017830 Serious question? ...Does this work. I have a cat that hates water and baths but she really needs a good shower. I usually use a washrag to bathe her. I Don't want to traumatized the cat either but she goes bat shit crazy whenever she gets sprayed with water, no matter the gentleness of the stream.
I have found an orphaned kitten, and am hoping for some advice. My wife and I have a couple cats already, but never had one this young before. The little guy somehow got over to where I work at the McCarran Airport in Las Vegas, into our warehouse. How he managed to survive the airfield, all the massive construction, the shopping centers and busy main drags that run by us is unbelievable, let along slip into our facility.
Anyway, long story short... we're not sure how old he is. We've cleaned him up, gave him some wet food (pate for easy eating), fresh water, a couple tablespoons of whole milk in a dish if he wanted, warm beds, litter, the works... but he is skin and bones... and we think he still needs to be bottle fed, as he looks super young. We're going to take him into the vet, but we can't get in until Monday.
I've gotten a bunch of info online for us to try to get him bottle fed with the right stuff, and there are a ton of tips, some contradicting each other. So I wanted to see if anyone had a bit of advice for us in the mean time that we could take to the bank?
NO MILK. Cow milk is bad for cats. Also it doesn't need to bottle fed, it's a kitten but still older than you think. It's probably skin and bones just because it's been trapped in there and got separated from its mother/something happened to the mother.
>>2013148 They're neat pets for the dedicated owner, but I hope to god they never become popular. The average pet owner can't handle training a dog properly, and treating even a domesticated fox like a dog is a path to disaster. I've seen so many people botch owning exotic pets in my time as a shelter volunteer.
The following was taken directly from my co workers Facebook page. "I have had several people comment, when they learn that I volunteer at the center, "Wow, that sounds like so much fun!". Yeah, there are moments when I giggle (who couldn't when face to face with a saw whet or a barred owl?). As much as I love being there, there are days when I cry all the way home or lay in bed at night hoping that barred owl will make it. Watching our director give it her all, thinking we may have success, only to watch it fail and die. No. It's not 'fun'.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Continued. "Very little credence is given to it being 'their world' as well, or to 'their joy' in simply being alive. Somehow, we can only understand the value of wildlife as an extension of our own sense of self-value, or if you will, self-importance. No wonder caring for injured wildlife is not viewed with the seriousness it requires to succeed; we don't take any of the natural world seriously.
