Now I understand why people go birdwatching. It's Pokemon for adults. Learning all the names, the colors and patterns, then finally taking your guide book/pokedex out into the wild and trying to find some.

Before I could never understand what people see in birds, but I get it now. It's not even about the birds themselves, it's the thrill of the chase and the moment you see something new for the first time and can identify it, and when you see something truly rare. I went birdwatching yesterday for the first time and had a lot of fun.

Can we just stop with this whole swatting mosquitoes meme? I think it's time for people to grow up and accept that all lives matter. No matter how small or inconsequential these precious creatures lives might seem to you and I, the fact remains that they are still living beings. Sentient, and of equal value to any other of the creatures on this Earth. Yeah, I know, I get it: they might cause you a minor annoyance at some point in your life. But your life will go on, and last much longer than theirs would have even without you cruelly, mercilessly "swatting" their...

I cry about it for a while and then I move on. If it's an animal I spent a lot of time with or bonded with I will remember them with fondness and occasionally be sad that they are no longer around but I go on with my life as normal. Some people keep ashes or paw print molds or old collars but I just keep pictures. I think the body is just a vessel anyways so I don't see much point in keeping ashes, or building a shrine. By the time my life's over I'm sure I'll have outlived quite a few animals so it's best not to dwell. When my last dog passed it...

If you were an adult when you got it you should've come to terms with the fact you were going to outlive this adorable little critter when you got it.

Okay so I've got 4 chicks and 3 of them look like the one on the left with no large red crests on their head. Just small yellow ones.

This one lil baby has big red flaps and crest growing every day. Is it a rooster? If so I will be quite upset because my township jas laws against owning loud rooster and ive become quite attached.

So my question is is this just a chicken with different features or possibly more mature (not the biggest btw)?

Will post close ups.

This is the chicken in question. Another one got in the shot for good comparison.

Another reason I can't get rid of it is that I've been led to believe that the chickens are the heir to a large fortune, but only if all four are together to claim it.

But that's a story for another time and place.

I have a 3 month old kittens that suddenly starting meowing all the time.
He'll just walk around and meow, sit in random places and meow, usually for no reason. He just went to the vet and was treated for worms and a cold and had a clean bill otherwise, and he's not lethargic so I doubt he's in pain. His sister rarely meows. Is it normal? What does it likely mean?

It can be normal; some cats are just more talkative than others. He may also be looking for you/attention. Most likely he's bored, and more play may help curb the behavior.
>>
>>2149947
I also have a talkative cat and this is usually the answer, boredom or looking for attention/food. My cat also lives aggressive combing with a brush, as in she leans into the brush with all her weight. After a really good grooming she is usually less chatty and content, maybe OPs is itchy as well

Thanks. Yeah I figured. I try to keep around me and hold but he's usually more interested in running around or playing with the other cat that sitting on my lack or me playing with a toy with him. Some cats are just louder than others but I just wonder if he's particularly needy or anxious about being alone, or spoiled even?

I don't know how to kill them, but I know how to make them docile, Satan
Buy a small remotely activable sound device with a bright tint (attach fake gold ring to itor something)
Leave it on the ground.
Some time after the cunt inevitably takes it to its nest, make it play absurdly high and sharp sounds at high volume whenever you hear the cunts screech
after a time they will stop
