/an/, I need some advice...

I was about to feed my puppy Merrick dry food, and I noticed something green in the bowl...

Turns out there was a piece of green plastic embedded in one of the kibbles.

Is this grounds to sue? I mean, I've fed her Merrick for quite a while now. Who knows how many more bags are like this. I know a little piece of plastic wont kill her, but she's my baby, and I'm upset.

Sue?

Lol accidents happen, don't be a dick. Take the bag back to the store you purchased it from, tell them what happened and get them to give you a refund (free dog food).

Was the plastic free floating in the bag or actually embedded in the food?
>>
>>2005440

unless something actually happened then you have no grounds to sue. your delicate disposition isn't likely to convince a judge to award you any money on its own

>>2005443

>green plastic embedded in one of the kibbles.

Never mind. If you want to cause a stink, show them the kibble, make a big deal about it. They might do a product recall on it if it's bad enough. Take photos and send a message to the company as well. Or just ignore the store and call the company directly.

Offer it your anus as an apology.

There are a couple things you can try.

Try locating the cat and sitting down in the room the cat is currently in. It may take some time but the cat will generally come up to you. Just be slow until the cat realizes you won't hurt it.

If the cat likes treats, you can always try offering them some treats/tuna or even cooked chicken as a sort of peace offering. The cat should start to associate you with treats and get back to being your friend (you can also combine this with sitting on the floor so the cat doesn't feel threatened).

Hope this helps!
>>
Try feeding it?
Tell the owners what you did and ask what kind of food it likes.
Don't try to chase it any more but getting close and fully extending your arm to let it smell you/maybe pet it a little will help.
Tell it you are sorry.
Honestly people trip over cats all the time so it has probably had this happen to it before.

Today my parents dog bit the shit out of my dads hand. It hit a vein, blood everywhere, hand was black and swollen. I gave the little Weiner dog a fuckin hard kick in the side and he ran away crying. Made me feel bad for what I did, I was just angry. Mom having him put down tomorrow. She put him in the garage. I let him come out and he's sleeping with me in bed for one last night (pic) and he doesn't even know what's coming Feelsbadman. Just wanted to share this stupid story with someone.

Give him to a no kill shelter. I know your parents are pissed off, but he's too fucking small to cause any life threatening damage to anyone besides a kid, no sense in killing him if someone else will take him and possibly rehab him.

I'm literally about to cry and i don't cry very often but im sure someone will take him in, why did he bite anyways?
>>
>>2005029
What you're looking for is called an animal rescue. Dog rescue. Although regular animal shelter would probably work out okay also. Dachshunds are popular and he would be quite likely to be adopted out in short order.

He bit because your dad scared him or made him feel threatened.

What animal could I realistically get as a pet that would live the longest? I really, really don't handle pet deaths well, and I'd like to avoid it again if possible.

I know parrots outlive their owners fairly often. And I've heard about those tortoises living +100 years, but I don't know how practical that would be.

32 KB,
so I've been with this girl and I'm kind of worried she's not giving him as much time as he needs, he's about 7 months old. I could be overreacting, I just want some assurance

>she works 4 days of the week 8 hours a day
>has a room in her rental she calls the "puppy room" that she keeps him in while she's gone
>room is completely empty (no tables, lamps, drapes, etc) except for his open crate and some food puzzle toys, rope/plush toys, chews, and water
>room is about 8ft by 8ft and he's left in there when she leaves at 9am
>she comes home on her lunch hour to give him a potty break and play with him
>gives him a walk or plays fetch when she gets home at 6
>goes to bed at 10 and he sleeps on her bed most nights or sometimes in his crate
>she walks and feeds him the next morning then the cycle repeats

I just worry he's not getting enough attention or exercise. and she takes college classes online so she's studying a lot on her days off and not taking him out

am I over reacting /an/? if not, how do I get her to give him more attention?

It depends on the breed of the dog.

If it's a greyhound then they don't need shit, but if a husky they need like 3 hours of running a day.

Hard to tell unless we know the breed and the specifics of how much time she spends with the dog and what she does during said time.

From what you described it sounds like you're overreacting, though.
>>
At seven months she's sounds like a good owner honestly. If the pup were say 3 or 4 months I would be a bit worried, but for how much she's working and still taking the time out of her day to come home at lunch and take care of that pup PLUS giving him a whole room, ah that just warms my heart. Unless the pup is misbehaving or not getting enough hard excersise, I wouldn't worry. She sounds like a great owner to me.

actually thinking about it he's more like 8 months. sorry for the fuck up

he's a husky/bulldog mutt she adopted. she took time off work until he was fully potty trained and could be left alone while she was gone at work (6 months, according to her)

she goes on a run each morning pretty early and takes him with her, little less than an hour I think. then on her break she does fetch in the yard type stuff. and when she's home it's more fetch and usually a walk. occasionally she'll...

News on the quadrupedal Spinosaurus hoax:
2 weeks ago a study came out showing that the short-legged Spinosaurus skeleton was not just assembled from different individuals, but from at least four different species and two different genera. It is a chimera, it doesn't real.

Of course the media ignored it. Four-legged aquatic Spinosaurus is officially over. Details here:

skimmed it, but it doesn't seem to actually prove the quad spino wrong or right.
>>
>>1992809
the last two sentences of the abstract and the paper in its entirely debunk the quad spino by reassigning most of the material used in the quad reconstruction to species other than S. aegyptiacus.

The quad reconstruction depended on the assumption that ALL OF THE BONES USED WERE NOT ONLY FROM THE SAME SPECIES, BUT FROM THE SAME INDIVIDUAL.

this paper shows that the bones were from four different species and two different genera, there's no possible way they were from one single individual.

how do you stop your cat from remaining in a perpetual state of kittenhood?

many domestic cats never develop properly because their natural behaviors are suppressed, they don't have normal family units and people mother them their whole lives

how do I stop this from happening

this theory has more or less been completely tossed out. so, to answer your question, in order to allow your kitten to grow out of kittenhood you must provide her with enough sustenance so her physical processes can progress as well as protection from stimuli that could permanently damage the kitten. your kitten will do the rest
