My cat has really crumbly poo. It's very light coloured, like sand, and is very crumbly. He doesn't always go like this, but when he does, it ends up outside of the litter box. (I think he has a hard time pushing it all out.) I found some outside the litter box again this morning, but in a rush to get to work didn't take a photo. This happens once every few months.
I've asked at different vets and they just say to put pumpkin in his food. I do that, I also have tried psyllium husks, and a yogurt treat for dogs and putting that in there. He eats raw... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Well in the case of dogs, you can and people do but in cats you can't. I think it is strange that you don't get this concept. Human attachment is hardly indiscriminate about anything from personal relationships, politics, entertainment and more. Dogs/cats/pets are companion animals and people love and care for them including their diet. Any animal can be a companion animal, there are people with pet cows and those people would probably rather eat a strange dog than their beloved cow. But cats and dogs specifically lend themselves well to domestic situations so they... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Don't misuse the word logic to apply to this. What you are describing is emotion, not logic.
If you used logic, you would realize it is logical to feed animals that eat other animals food that is other animals. If you used stupid, hippy vegan emotional bullshit as a substitution for logic, however, you would try to force your feelings onto animals just to say you preserved your delicate sensibilities, but you don't actually care about your animal companion.
2/10 bait, but there are actually people who think this, and they are dipshits.
Has anyone here had an aggressive chinchilla? No, more than aggressive, plain nuts actually. I've had the fucker for over 6 months now and he hates me more than ever. He is sharing the cage with his son, which is adorable, so he is never alone, he is allowed to go outside the cage 4 hours a day, he eats the best food possible, I give him treats every two days, he has toys, a nice house, he chewed my furniture as well... Apart from being a poo shotgun, he is the biggest asshole I've seen. He always grits his teeth in anger whenever I come near him, he bites me, pisses... Comment too long.

how come dogs evolved into those different types when there was just the wolf or a common ancestor of him? Like, the difference in size and whatnot, was it all just luck and literal physical retardation that some got floppy ears etc?
Alright guys I need some help and seriously fast, like faster than a fucking gunshot. So Im in Bulverde, Texas. I was lying in bed and suddenly I started feeling uneasy then my dog started growling outta nowhere. So I was like "What the fuck is this shit." Suddenly, not even joking here a growling sorta sound emerged, sounded like sheep being slaughtered. /an/ please help, please please. Im fucking scared for my life here.
Guys, I think I managed to accidentally kill my betta. So the poor bastard was originally a zoology lab test subject. We used him to study his reaction to various stressors (look, if you stick a mirror next to him, he gets really pissed!), and at the end of the lab the TA asked if anyone wanted to take one of them home. So I took him, fed him when I got home, then the next day got a tank and stuff and prepared it for him. Problem is, I've never owned a betta before, so I took him straight from the little cup he was in straight to the warm water. It's been a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2002227 I had conditioned and warmed up the water, but I didn't warm his cup water up, so I think the shock of the temperature change finally did him in. I hadn't figure on him lasting terribly long anyway.
>>2002228 depends how warm the water was I suppose. They can handle small temperature changes, and the water shouldn't feel warm to your hand. The right temp feels neutral or a bit cold to most people.
but you might as well give it another try since you got him a tank and whatnot. They don't cost much, and they can live a few years usually.
>>2001172 >>2001176 You two deserve to die in a fire. You must be literal clinical retards to not see the superior breed and the master race of any canine, full of love and loyalty to their owners. You sure like some meme breds as corgis or german shepperds as the autists you are.
Is it poor form to "get rid" of an entire school of fish if I'm bored of them? I'm not killing them or anything, one of the LFS's in town (the shittier one) will take back just about any fish. I wanna get rid of my school of 13 Neon Tetras. Why I'm bored of them should be obvious.
What should I replace them with? I have a school of 8 Gold Barbs in the tank + 3 Otos. I was thinking about throwing a GBR in as a centerpiece fish. Any suggestions? I want either one large-schooling fish like the tetras that are being replace, or at least two other... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So my cat has gone missing yet again. He is an outdoor cat and we let him come and go from the house as he pleases during the day. He has gone missing several times since we got him 11 years ago; the last time being out for over a week before he came back on his own as if nothing had happened. I've decided that if he does come back that I am never letting him outside again and reintroducing him to the litter box so I don't have to deal with the stress of maybe never seeing him again
Is is possible to do this to a cat who is already technically a senior? Could... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Yeah, it should be fine. Obviously the biggest issue is mental stimulation, so find toys he likes and play with him as much as you can. As a senior he should be slowing down more anyway, so it's for the best.
He won't like it to start with, but with any luyck he'll get over it. Take him outside sometimes, but watch him and don't let him run out of the yard and give him a stand near a window to look out of.
The lab is the UK's favourite dog. The Chinese Crested, bulldogs and the poodle are amongst the least loved.
25% of Britons own dogs; and 25% own cats.
The Border Collie comes in second. The top ranking dogs are mainly mid-sized working or herding dogs, often originating in Britain. The Alaskan Husky is the only real exception, known for its efficiency as a sled dog in North America; the other being the Golden Retriever, a gun dog but still hailing from Britain and Europe.
The dogs with the least positivity (in fact all ten at the very bottom... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I don't know how much you can really take away from this survey, given that one of the least favourite dogs is the Staffordshire bull terriers (I assume that's whatever the fuck a Bullboxer Staff is meant to be), yet they're one of the most popular breeds. And if you asked a bunch of people which dogs they like most, how many would really bring up their specific dislike of the Miniature Xoloitcuintl? There's probably like six in the entire UK.
That seems pretty depressingly short. They're social animals. Have you considered working with a trainer on the carpet issue? Or crate training him out of it? Or is there a non carpeted space? Or maybe you can do several play sessions?
What kind of outdoor enclosure does he have? If it is like a spacious yard or run that you can put enrichment item in then that might not be so bad. But if it's just chained up, to me that's borderline cruel.
He pissed in the crate? Take him to the vey and have the vet take a look because that sounds like it could be some kind of bladder infection/uti which aren't uncommon in puppies. Typically any dog will do anything they can to avoid eliminating where they sleep.
If not that, since he is so young I'm pretty sure some training might really help. Or if you're unwilling to do that you should find him a new home. But I really don't think the idea of keeping him outside all the time will make... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
