One of our cats has been sick on and off for awhile now. We just got a call from our vet saying that he's almost certainly in or about to go into renal failure. His recommendation was euthanasia. My wife and I are talking about whether to have our 5 year there when it happens. Growing up I was there for my pets, but my wife wasn't. I think he's old enough to understand what's going on but my wife disagrees and thinks he's still too young and it would just upset him. We had another cat die of old age... Comment too long.

> been keeping hots longer than you've been alive. That's what his fans keep saying and I don't understand why, because he uses it to say whatever he wants, complain about things he does and basically shitposting everywhere he can.

I just wanted to thank you posters and scum of the earth that have seen the inferno on /b/ and decided to create /an/.
You that lie out of death's grasp will keep lighting the way. You are about to witness the rise of a new god/goddess. I'm so happy to share with you guys and I can't wait to see what you will always procreate

Just how effective were saber teeth compared to more modern carnivore teeth and why did it die out? Their bites obviously weren't as strong as anyone would like to think so they most often relied on strength and size, so did the 'sabers' of the animal world die out in favor of the smaller animals with a stronger bite force?
At some point they must have been some sort of advantage considering all the saber cats, false-saber cats and even some kinda-of-not-really marsupials had them. Was it just an 'advantage' at some point because these animals... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2012925 Like Jaguars and Panthers today they'd climb up trees and drop down ontop of prey using their sabers (and the momentum) to stab into the backs of the prey. They died out most likely thanks to the ice age causing more grasslands to form.
So, I have had these two budgies in a big cage for the last two years and I never really interacted or tried to gain their trust. At first they would freak out just by being near their cage and opening the doors to refill essentials. But in time they grew used to me and let me be near them after the routines.
But I want to make friends with them, and the the green budgie is more wary so she'll jump or back away from me while I'm near. So I want to know how to gain their trust, become friends. I want to put my hand in there and let them crawl on and fly to me... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
has anyone tried these things? websites have good reviews, a few people say it didnt work for them. just bought a bag of the soft chews to try them myself. one of my dogs gets major anxiety on new years and july 4th over fireworks and all that and the other is a monster to get his nails cut and id rather not have him get full on sedated if i can avoid it.
>>2011880 I know a few people who use these, work great. They take about twenty minutes to go into effect, what's great is you can increase dosage as needed, some dogs or situations may call for a larger dose.
For animals working to pull a heavy load, say a team of buffalos, oxens, horses or dogs...Do people need to train them to work together? Or do they just hitch them onto the load and make them follow a leader?
They don't really fight with each other, oxen especially because oxen usually refers to castrated bulls. These animals have been raised around each other and their environment so they're pretty much just used to everything.
How much training they get is sort of a geographical thing but in general they are trained to respond to signals, be it verbally or physically(poles, whips, tugging a certain way on a rope, etc). It would be extremely dangerous to just take a random ox/horse/etc and strap them up if they've had zero training.
They don't really... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't know anything about it, but ya it totally takes a lot of training for the critters and being a teamster for more than two is a pretty skilled job. You don't just hitch something up that has never seen a wagon before.
