Hello /an/, please help me

I will move this summer and plan on taking my Siberian cat with me.
The flight will be 2 hours, travel to and from the airport is 1 hour each so my cat will be in his bag for good 4 hours.

My question is which bag (pic related) is better?

I have a sleepypod air which I even have out for him now and he sometimes sleeps in it but the mesh holes seem so small/dense that I'm worried he might overheat?

And then theres the Trixie 'Shiva' bag, which has big mesh holes but here I'm worried he doesn't...

his name is Simon.

He's such a qt. There's not much you can do with cat while traveling, make sure to pet him and calm him as much as you can. Open the bag a little, stick your hand, scratch him or something like that. He'll know you're close and he'll feel safer.

>>2150293

Thank you anon,

I know cats are territory bound so I want to try to stress him as little as possible.

Would trimming his fur a bit lower the chance of overheating?

Hi /an/, i'm building a 36 inch tall plywood tank with a base of 24 x 24 inches, can i keep a pair of jackson chameleons in there. Also, i read they need around 50% humidity, but there are people whining about how screen cages are better, can i just use mesh on top of the tank?

Chams require a great deal of airflow, which is why screen enclosure is the recommended for them. Also, glass is a big no-no. Chams, being fussy like they are, do not do well with glass. Seeing their own reflections freaks them out.

Don't get chameleons if you're already griping about the care requirements. They are tedious and failure to meet those tedious requirements generally = dead chameleon.
>>
>>2149976
I read people that people use glass with the top or/and bottom cut out and replaced with mesh, also i red that people used small fans like with axolotls to create airflow
>>
Chameleons need a paradoxical combination of airflow and humidity to survive.

Better air flow naturally lowers humidity so getting it right is very challenging.

You don't know the care requirements, you think you're gonna keep 2 chams in a small plywood enclosure... just don't get a chameleon.

Friend of mine found these in her backyard any idea what they are and if they're harmful?

Hey /an/ I'm having a bit of a dilemma regarding fleas. I have three cats - a turkish van, tonkinese and a moggy. The moggy is the only cat allowed outside and brings fleas into the house, which are really hard to get rid of on the turk. All the cats have flea collars (changed regularly as I know the repellant wears off), we have a plug-in flea catcher (which doesn't really work), give all the cats flea tablets and a spot-on type flea killer/repellant every couple of months. Oh and all bedding etc. is washed every couple of weeks.

However the fleas are still here and won't fuck off :( I've also tried the room foggers with varying success. Obviously the problem comes from the outdoor cat bringing them in, but fleas are still in the house too.

>tl;dr
>cats and house have fleas
>do not want

I live in the UK, so any products suggested would have to be available here. I currently use 4pets household flea killers and tablets, and have used advantage/frontline/4pets/beaphar spot-on treatments. What active ingredient is the most effective? Would it be worth getting prescription meds from the vet?

pic related, my turk Frank

Forgot to mention, I flea comb the tonk and TV fairly easily and even bath the TV, but the moggy hates being brushed (I still try)

Dude you know the answer.
Keep the moggy indoors.

I'm surprised you aren't killing them with such an overdose.

I'm taking my dog to the vet today but before I go I wanted some of your opinions for when I get back. Last week I left my dog with my cousin to go on a holiday abroad, and now she's back she seems normal, except for whenever I touch her leg/ tail she freaks out. She never used to do this and she isn't eating as much. I'm just wondering if my cousin has mistreated her in some way?

Let your vet tell you the nature of the injury first. Maybe she got hurt playing and your cousin was hoping you wouldn't notice? I wouldn't jump straight to abuse unless your cousin has hurt animals in the past intentionally.

>>2149536
Does your cousin have children? Leg/tail pulling is common for little kids.

>>2149628
Another clue: your cousin having one less child.

In september I'll be moving to a house with a 2.5 acre yard, so I figured we might get a new dog, because we'll have more than enough room.

We already have a female labrador, and I was looking into some of the more elegant, bigger breeds. Does anyone here have experience with Dobermans or Kuvasz?

Thanks

I have had dobermans. They have pretty sweet dispositions. A little neurotic sometimes. And clingy. Careful training required as they are quite intelligent and will disregard owner commands if they think they can get away with it.

Oh, also if you buy from a breeder, the ear croppping is not mandatory and you can request that it not be done for your doggo.
>>
Dobies are velcro dogs. They're smart as hell, but if you value independence, they're not for you. That dog will try to live up your ass.

Never met a kuvasz.

>>2149430
Can confirm. Oh, you're going to the kichen? I'm coming too. Office? Me too. Bathroom of course. He didn't like the sound of the shower running though. Dreaded bath time association. If i didn't want him resting his snout on my leg while I'm sitting on the toilet i just had to turn on the shower for a second and he'd wander off.

Hey /an/, I need some gift advice. I know a kid who's gotten really interested in fish and aquariums and stuff like that. I was thinking about getting him a marine biology/ichthyology book, but I don't know much (anything, really) about the subject. Do you guys know any good ones? A beginner's entry would be preferred, but he's pretty smart, so I don't think it has to use baby talk or anything.

Found a beetle, Stag I think, on one of our stucky floor pads. Managed to peel him off without critically damaging his legs, and peeled off some of the sticky gunk hindering his movements.

I flip him over and he tries to run with his freed legs, yet he can only scitter forward before flipping back over. I've made some decent process with the removal (carefully scraping away with needle), but does anyone else have any suggestions?

I really want to help him, but I also don't want to hurt him. If push comes to shove, what's the best way of humanely putting him down?

fingernail polish or acetone on a q-tip.

Fingernail polish is basically diluted acetone so that would be safer. the adhesive should wipe away pretty easy and the stuff evaporates at room temp to it should be fine.

Sand crabs are what we used to call them. They are some sort of shrimplike crustacean I think. Not a sand flea, that is something entirely different

It's a mole crab, also called sand fleas in Florida, though I think that's due to pompano fisherman not wanting their favorite bait collected and fried.
