A pet isnt going to magically make you happy its a living animal that will depend 100% on you, why would you do that when you cant even help yourself.

Whenever things start getting better someone always brings me down. People look for the smallest reasons to attack me and now I'm alone.

Having a pet companion to take care of and bond with seemed like a good idea.
I'm not helpless, I'm just trapped and doing my best to keep going.

I live in Bangkok, found a kitten seconds away from being slaughtered by a bunch of stray dogs, so I stepped in.

I have a lifelong experience with cats, but I havent been in this situation before. What do?

At first it was terrified, running around the apartment meowing non-stop, looking for places to hide. Eventually calming down more and more. An hour later, its still meowing, but now purring a bunch as well, and wont go more than a meter from me. It drank a bit of water, but didnt want food. Its roughly 20 cm excluding the tail, but Im not sure how old thatd...

Did she get into any human food? Especially anything in the onion family, such as garlic? If she did then this could be causing some serious problems with her thyroid, keep an eye on her if she gets worse.

In the meantime, call the vet office and ask to speak to an actual vet working on duty. Ask them if you can give your dog babies benadryl, you can give certain dogs low doses of it for serious allergy reactions, but the vet needs to tell you if sharpeis can have it, and how much.

Any rat owners in the house?

I've been keeping rats for a few years now, but I'm up against a tough customer. I was looking for an adult who could defend herself against a pair of largish sisters, and eventually came across someone on Gumtree who wanted to rehome their adult doe because she kept beating up their new babies. It sounded to me like they'd not done their intros properly and she was very sweet so I took her home.

Long story short, when I finally completed the intro and moved her in with the sisters, both larger than she was, it turned...

I've actually had her for about eight months. She's always been affectionate towards me and a bitch to the other two, and she's always not inclined to share me, but she's definitely escalated in the last two. I've been out of work since the end of March so I've obviously been home a lot and all of the girls are getting massive amounts of attention. You'd think that the attention whore would be more relaxed though, not the other way around. It's got to the point where one...

Hello /an

I'm kinda new to this board, but I'd like ask this, my mother has 5 dogs (4 poodles and a greyhound-like one). The garden is quite big, and they go around, running and barking the minute you let them out of the house.. I mean INCESSANT BARKING, really fucking annoying.
The neighbours are complaining and my mom antagonizes them all. Before any of the dogs gets poisoned (or my neighbour for any case) is there a way to calm them? Have any of you experienced something like this? Do those shocking collars work?

TLDR: My mom's dogs bark a...

Those bark collars and speakers that react to barking and play a high pitched sound that annoys the dog- they work.

If the dog is especially stupid it will take a couple days to figure out what's going on and they might bark more until they get it.

It kind of fucks them up though, they whine and do that stupid clawing at the ground with paws extended thing a lot more when they can no longer bark. I guess barking is a stress reliever or something.

Also, the animal rights meme has tricked everyone....

Ok, the poodles are "bichon frise", supossedly an inteligent kind, quite young... so i'll try to aply some of this things (preferably the cheapest ones)

they can be trained, but it is a lot of work. The more dogs, the harder it's going to be because they might have a hard time knowing who you're talking to.

Okay, this is what I did. I have purebred Great Pyr. Notoriously loud breed. Anyway, he is very vocal. I only let him out to do his business then bring him right back, but if any neighbors are out, it's go time. We have a 6ft privacy fence but he still sees through the crack.

Anyway, I got out with him every time. I follow him. If he starts his shit, I make him sit, then lay down, then give him...

Wait til they leave.
Hold rat by base of tail on hard surface.
Hold a pen or screwdriver or some kind of rod on the rat's neck right up against the skull.
Push down on rod, pull strongly (don't jerk) on the tail.
Put rat back.
>told you it would just die like that
FYI anything fed to the snake should be killed that way first.
Live feeding is cruel, and also dangerous to the snake while also making the snake dangerous to the owner.

Why do authorities make such an effort to identify the animal that kills someone? I don't understand the importance of it.

Not saying I have an opinion. Just curious. They have the body so it can't be that.

I read this yesterday. It said they killed 5 gators but were going to do some sort of scientific examination on them to see if any of them were the ones that did it.

I think you're actually looking at PR and damage control. They know it's stupid and pointless, but they have an image to protect.

It seemed incredibly shitty to me that they'd go all-out genocide over it. I get that it's not exactly endangered, or cute, or rare, or friendly, but it's still a tad unnecessary to just go all Crocodile Dundee on the lagoon. Sad.

is it true that shibas are the cats of the dog world?

Relatively quiet, relatively clean/self grooming, more or less independent or happy to do their own thing? Seems to be the case from what I've read online, but I haven't really had a chance to interact with the breed IRL.

Is everything you know about the breed via imgur gifs of the dogu doing memeable things?
>>
>>2146709
They're difficult to train, have high requirements for exercise and mental stimulation and they're loud as fuck and destructive if you don't meet those requirements. They're also escape artists. They're about as cat-like as a Husky.
Unless you're on a massive property that your dog can freely roam, even the most "cat-like" independent or low energy dog is going to ideally get a 30 minute walk daily, with exceptions only being made for really old dogs.
