Do turtles lose their instinct to hunt and eat if they've been in captivity a long time?

Some guy was giving away a turtle and aquarium on FB. I'm going to use the aquarium for fish and was going to let the turtle go in a pond behind my house but I don't want him to starve to death.

Maybe instinct isn't what I meant, more like skill

Yeah, they pretty much do. That may also not be the correct habitat for his species even if he were skilled. And supposing it was there would already be turtles there that will out compete. Get a different tank, keep it, or find if a separate home. If you won't give up the tank then at least just kill the turtle instead of releasing

Do you ever cook for your pet?

How often? Why? What do you give them?

My pup got a hard start after I adopted him from the rescue; he came with a lot of parasites. I cooked a lot of chicken and rice through those months. Now, though, I scramble him an egg in the morning and put it in his kibble.

My uncle and aunt add a lot of stuff to their dog's kibble. He cooks chicken for the dog but will add in things from the family dinner like rice, vegetables, bread, etc.

My cousins rarely feed their dogs kibble at all and instead give them scraps from whatever they're cooking. They toss leftovers throughout the day into a bucket by the sink and give it to them at the end of the day. They're ranch dogs, so they exercise enough not to be overweight, at least, though I don't know how healthy it is for them.

Putting an egg in with the kibble is fine and probably beneficial. Your uncle and aunt sound like what they are doing is ok too, maybe minus the bread.

However your cousins are stupid. You can't just feed a dog whatever you eat and not expect it to develop problems. Do they ever cook with garlic or onions? Those are bad for dogs and very common in cooking.


I think adding human food in moderation is fine, but cooking your dog food 100% of the time is probably detrimental unless you've done some serious research. My mom feeds her dogs chicken, rice...

I fed my last dog entirely on porridge, scrambled eggs and chicken and rice in his old age. He started developing digestive issues when he was about 12 and was fine eating these meals, but got an upset stomach on commercial dog food and red meat. I don't know if it was perfectly balanced, but my primary concern was seeing my old dog enjoying his food and not experiencing any discomfort from it, not squeezing every bit of longevity out of him. The little shit lived to nearly 16 so I ended up scrambling a lot of eggs for him after all.

I don't specifically cook...

A lot of people forget that dogs started off eating our leftover scraps and living alright lives. Is it the best diet for them? Will they thrive on it? Probably not, but it's not like giving them crappy kibble that amounts to fast food either.

We know a lot more about dogs digestive systems than we used to and know the major foods that are poisen to dogs, so if someones going to give them mainly scraps, they can avoid overly seasoned foods and bad foods and probably still have a pretty healthy dog if they...

Want to know what it is really like in the pet center that prides itself on "Happiness in Store?"

Here is your chance! My fiance, Queen B, was an employee for a store in the Gulf South for 3 years. She worked in every department, including grooming, but switched mainly between cashier and grooming.

I was an employee, also in the Gulf South at another location. I was "the fish dude" of the store that also worked stock and other shit like that..

Please do ask anything, like seriously, anything!

What should I do if my cat wants to go outside?


My cat has been meowing and freaking out when I'm outside or she meows at the door, or paws at it. I think she really wants to go outside.

I'm not going to let her outside but is there something I can do to alleviate her wanting to be outside?

She gets played with and has another cat the same age as her. The other cat isn't really interested in going outside though.

Well, fuck.

I rescued a cat in a parking lot a month ago. I was going to have her spayed and find her a home. But today, I don't know what happened. She was fine this morning but now she's confused, stumbling, lethargic and really out of it.

I have about 75 dollars I could spend on her right now without immediately imperiling the roof over my head. I contacted my vet, double booked and don't think they could help her anyway. Called animal hospital, I can't afford it and was denied carecredit. I called 3 other vets, same boat. I called 4 shelters, they aren't taking any cats right now under any circumstances. I called animal control, they'll euthanize her.

I'm really sad. I feel like such a piece of shit but there really isn't an option which I can get any more money. I've begged and bargained. I have no one to borrow money from. No credit to speak of.

I have two options here. I can cry on the phone to my vet until they let me euthanize her there today for 50 dollars. Or I can take her to an animal hospital where the fee to be seen is 75 dollars so she can be seen but at that point I can't do anything else and then I have to cry and beg them to put her down or take her to animal control to be put down. I'm leaning towards just euthanizing her at my vet because I feel more comfortable weeping at them.

I would appreciate it if you wouldn't make me feel like a worse piece of shit than I already feel like I am. I know I shouldn't have a cat if I can't pay for the vet but I wasn't planning on keeping her, I just could afford to get her spayed and vaccinated at the low income clinic so I wanted to give her a shot.

Should I let her die at home if she doesn't seem distressed, just sleepy.
>>
Well her condition seems to only be worse. With the lack of any other input or option I have "indecided" to just let her die at home unless she seems to be suffering. She seems very peaceful and that it would overall be more stressful to drag her to a vets. It all has happened so quickly I imagine even if I had been able to finance hospital intervention, I don't know if it would have saved her. Of course I really would have rather known and been able to provide her that care. I still feel really bad about not being able to. If they had imprudently approved me...

I have loved animals my whole life. I've had dogs and cats that I've always loved and spoiled, I still cry about a dog that died 15 years ago. I have a special bond and connection with animals. I cry whenever an animal dies on TV, or even gets hurt. If I run over a squirrel I have to pull over because I'm hysterical. And I mean i cry when a snake eats a mouse on TV, ANYTHING that involves hurt/dying animals. My dog I have now is so spoiled and attached to me that he doesn't eat when I'm not home, whines and he lays by the door until I arrive and goes...
