My roommate and I take care of a stray cat in our culdesac. He's totally blind but knows his way around pretty well, almost as if he had eyesight. This morning when I went out to feed him I noticed that he walked with a limp in his right hind leg. I beckoned him closer and he quietly meowed a lot, rubbing my legs.
I've only recently moved in about a month ago, but I've never noticed this and I doubt it's something I've overlooked since it's so obvious. He also seems very very skinny, but afaik he's always been like that no matter how much...

If you are serious you can try to use a de-worming medicine and just put it in a can or just half a can of wet food just make sure it eats it all. But if you really want to help the cat is to take it in and keep it indoors and get it all cleaned up. It'll appreciate the environment change since and it'll actually be safe.

Forgot to add, the cat in that webm is limping with its hind leg turned out to the side a bit. It looks as if it got hit by a car or has an infection in the hip or something.

Thanks for the reply. I'll look into deworming medicine.

What I really wanna do though is take him to a vet so I know exactly what's going on and how to help, but since I have no prior experience with vets I don't know if I'll go through all the trouble just to end up with either a shrug or an expensive bill over a cat I don't even own.

I'd consider taking him in but my roommate's parents own the duplex apartment...

need some advice /an/

my friends 18 week old dwarf rabbit just died after they had it for three days

in the morning it had some diarrhea, then later that night it was limp and had left something looking like sarichia sauce on the floor
we gave it some water but it could barely drink, and it passed away shortly afterwards

we called the vet but they told us it was probably just indigestion

my friend said they fed it rabbit pellets, coriander stems, a Brussels sprout

they are understandably upset, but I'm trying to work out what happened...

They sold your friend a defective rabbit. Bring it back to the reputable retailer in which they acquired it from and demand a refund post haste.

No way anything they did could have killed it that quickly short of stepping on it. Most likely preexisting condition.

Buy from a good breeder, ignore the muttfags.

As long as you're willing to do some research and travel a bit to inspect sites and meet the parents you should have no issue finding a good puppy. Pic related, my pupper.

Things like what they do with their dogs (agility, obedience, tracking, it does not have to be confirmation shows but they should do something), what are they breeding for (good breeders will have a goal in mind, but also keep in mind that not all goals are good), what health issues the breed has, what health tests the parents and grandparents have and the results, and if they are done yearly. Ask about their return policy and...

Help /an/, I was wondering if any one here owns parakeets. How do you go about feeding them treats? Specifically home made ones. Currently I chop up green beans and carrots and sprinkle them wth seeds. Other ideas?

If you mean budgies i have three rescued ones from different backgrounds.

In spite of all coming from bad homes, jealousy works wonders - especially if one is braver than the others. They tend to try new treats to spite the others lmao. That and they like trying what i eat.
>>
i just give mine whatever and they try it, they can be weird about greens so i cook them mixed into eggs or the bird granola etc i make them but they're enthusiastic about everything else and like trying new food...

when i had two that were scared of new foods i hung them like toys, ate then offered them some or mixed them with seeds until they got over their fear and just tasted things i'd put out for them... my green cheek helped them get over their fear of new foods too

Eggs? Just fried eggs? Or boiled or what? Sorry for all the questions, just really trying to give hem a variety of foods instead of just the same hints over and over.

Hey /an/, fa/tg/uy here. I'm hoping you can help me with something. I've never posted on this board before so I'm coming cap in hand and know this probably isn't what the board usually covers.

In a game of D&D I'm currently in due to a series of unfortunate events one of my characters is turning into a fair folk, one of the fey, themed around predators, night and the forest.

So my GM and I have decided he'll have aspects of a super ambusher/hunter, an apex predator and king of the dark forests.

I have got no clue at all...

When I think predators, nights, and forests I think of big cats, specifically Jaguars. I have no clue where horns fit in as they generally belong to hooves herbivores.
>>
>>2154371
Yeah I'd definitely skip the horns and go with skills like tree climbing and extreme stealth. They also tend to be sprinters instead of endurance runners so do with that as you will. Maybe a skill of being able to disappear into the shadows? It's been a while since I've played

20 KB,
I've wanted a larger parrot than what I already have for the longest time now, and I've decided on any type of Conure. I took a trip to Petco, and I saw a parrot that looks like pic related.

Adorable and affectionate little guy, he was rolling over on his back, running up to me from his cage, I even got to hold him and he wouldn't leave my finger.

I don't know what to do, I know buying from any chain pet store is a sin, but I've fallen head-over-heels for this guy. Should I look elsewhere for another bird or take this guy home?

No its not. If the animal is happy and healthy there is literally nothing wrong with buying from shops bar the often inflated price. Breeders arent necessarily amazing owners; i know plenty of bird breeders who are in it solely for the money...

avocado.jpg
33 KB,
I've been a lifelong owner and lover of pet birds, and I've read in several source materials and by fellow breeders back when I bred cockatiels that avocados are very toxic to the point of being lethal to birds.

Is this true? Or is this a myth, like that if you touch a bird's nest the parents won't return or that birds can't smell?

Also what is it about the avocado that makes it dangerous to birds and why not people or cats or dogs and is it only specific birds? thanks /an/

As far as why they're allegedly so bad for birds, I couldn't tell you.

it's not especially toxic to cats and dogs but will cause vomiting.

as for birds, they are in fact very poisonous. no idea why.
