I am a relatively new poster, but I've quickly realized my parents might be doing something fundamentally wrong.
We have had three cats now. Our oldest cat lived as long as twenty (!) years. Even from early days on we have always allowed our cats to go outside, we have a huge garden, we live next to a road that isn't very busy and a forest that is just thirty meters away.
I realize cats are in invasive species and kill local species of birds for example, but take into consideration that this area where I live used to have very high population... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am always of the 'keep it in your own yard' mentality when it comes to pets. Keep your dog in your own yard, keep your cat in your own yard. If you have neighbors who dont mind your cat going over and sitting on their lawn then that's cool, but you shouldnt risk your pet by letting them roam two blocks down into random backyards where they could be unwanted. People pay for their rent/homes and they have a right to not want your animals on their property.
Letting animals go off in fields or forests is another thing that is risky.... if it's yours... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If you can't let your cat outside, do not get one. If you can but do not, kill yourself, they need exercise, and naturally are outside, My cats have lived to twenty when allowed to live outside in the country their whole life. Not allowing them outside should be considered neglect.
I worked at a lumber yard when I was younger. We would set live traps when we'd have raccoon problems. Occasionally we would catch a cat in the trap. It was handled the same way as a raccoon. Keep your shit cats inside, you shit owners.
>>2012081 I never just come up with a name on the spot I just keep them for a bit to see what their personality is like. I have a father who is an art history teacher so our cats were always named with historical names that fit their personality.
So, my dog somehow managed to jump the fence or maybe someone let her out and she's been gone for about 3 days. No shelter or the pound have her and I've had no luck in finder her. How late is too late? Could she just come back and wait at the gate or something or is there not much hope?
I found this beside a creek while out for a walk It was standing beside a drain pacing back and forth meowing constantly, it had gotten its from left leg caught in its collar and it had rubbed the shoulder raw
Brought it home and called the number on its collar and it had been missing for 4 weeks
There's something about that cat that I just can't put my finger on. Good job.
>>2011447 I was 14ish. I lived on a lake with my parents before I moved out, and I decided to ride the Jetski in the morning (really the first time in a long time). I see something that looks like a log in the distance so I check it out. When I got out to the middle of the lake there was a hound swimming circles. I grabbed him by the nape and brought him home on the Jetski. Named him Prince. I assume that a hunter just said... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Dear /an/ About two months ago, we found this beehive crate in an abandoned house of sorts. We took it, washed it out with paint thinner etc. and gave it a coat of paint. Today, I come back from work and find out that all of a sudden, in the span of less than 6 hours, HUNDREDS of bees moved in. In the middle of the city. I don't even know how many of them there are, I saw about two dozen flying around and any hole that I peek in through I only see a swarm of fucking bees. Now my question, to put it gently, is what the fuck do I do about this? I know bees are... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
i dont think that spider is a Wolf Spider cause the pictures dont look similar, and most of these wolf spiders are small, this spider loves heat and dont bite my dad while he was holding him, he just stayed on his hand and didnt move, we threw little peace of fresh meat in the little container and i dont know if he's eating it but he is just laying with his mouth on the meat and not moving, i live in israel and any information about this spider will help
>>2009749 Not sure, but it might be a giant house spider(which is about the biggest bro you can have in your home), although its legs look a bit too thick for that.
I was about to say tarantula wolf spider(which is a actually the original tarantula; tarantula spiders got their name from this wolf spider), but I doubt you have them in Israel, although they are supposedly common in southern Europe.
Try to get a better pic, and it will be easier to tell.
I am wondering how many of you started to move up from beginner species. I have owned four rose hairs and want to move up to some more interesting tarantulas but I am nervous about not being qualified to take care of them. When I got my first rose hair my asshole friend tried to get me to get a greenbottle blue, but after six seconds of google I realized, though I would give half an organ to have one, they are not for people who are inexperienced. I was looking for some advice from people who advanced from relatively common, normal pets to the harder to own, how did you do it?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2007747 If you can successfully keep simple species happy, you are well qualified to try something trickier. You already know what is involved with keeping appropriate temps and humidity. If the care sheets for more difficult species look doable for you then go for it. Often the difference between beginner and advanced is just smaller margin for error.
For most trantulas going from a beginner's species to an expert is easy. Like the other anon said you already got the basics down temp, humidity, and substrate. That being said you should still account for agrsssion and consider that other T.s might not be as slow or docile as a rose hair. Best advice I can give you is decide on the species you want and then read up as much as you can on it. Find out what other people do and don't do and learn from them. Don't just impulse buy (though I've been guilty of that in the past). Also consider getting spiderlings.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2007747 I've had my B. vagans since May. First tarantula ever, got him at 2". He's now 4", a definite male (sexed him with /an/'s help), and doing just fine. Everywhere I have read says they aren't a good beginner species but honestly I haven't had a single problem. Except whenever I test his feeding response he gets pissed off.
