I saw a squirrel attack and destroy a sparrow nest today, killing (and presumably eating) the nestlings in the process.

I am shaken. I had no idea that squirrels preyed upon other animals. Why are squirrels such bastards?

Hi /an/, I found this messenger dove stuck on my neighbors upstairs window ledge (it has a tag on its leg).

Its almost 11pm here and my neighbors are away for the week, it hasn't moved for a few hours so I assume it doesn't have enough room to take off. My main concern is if it gets tired and falls one of the local cats might pounce on it.

Any have any advice on how to help it? I live in the UK if that helps with who to contact.

Any chance you can draw it down with water? Try pouring water slowly into a bowl while it has you in its sight.

Most places need you to capture the bird first

>>
they laying eggs in the hole.

the solitary bee you (probably got) in your home makes small closed off sections in a hole and lays nectar/food for the egg she lays inside.

sugar water can "revive" a dying bee, but they crave nectar. although if they have passed by a good plant with nectar they will remember and return the next day.

My sister has an adorable 3 legged cat; her husband had told her they couldn't get another cat since they had 3 already, and 4 would be too much, but she convinced him that it only counts as 3/4 of a cat so it wouldn't go over the 4 limit.

Dog Etiquette

In this thread we post tips for people interacting with dogs in public.


>Ask before you pet the dog or let your dog come near.

>If a dog is on a leash in an off leash area do not allow your dog to approach before confirming its ok with the owner.

>A dog with a muzzle isnt always a dangerous dog, the owners could just be being cautious.

How about when someone with stranger aggressive dogs have their unleashed dog in a public area? This happens to me every other day when I'm out on a walk, the owners seem pissed that I'm even in existence while they unsuccessfully try to call their dog back

I've just been handling it by standing still, but sometimes I still get bit or I will have to stand there for several minutes with a dog right up to my crotch growling at me until the owner feels 'safe' enough to grab them.

What's the best reaction when this happens?
>>
>>2137445
Kick the dog in the jaw.
>>
>>2137445
Invest in some pepper spray, one for the dog and another for the owner in case they decide to go rabid too.

I got my hamster nibbles 3 weeks ago. Ever since i got him i noticed that he would move slowly, not run on his wheel or run at all, and sleep a lot. At first i thought maybe he was just lazy but today i picked him up and noticed he has pic related. Idk what it is and hes probably had it since i got him. I think maybe he got that from the petstore either from poor care or fighting with the other hamsters. Please /an/ idk what to do. Its 3:00am so no vet is open and i feel really bad for not noticing or suspecting anything sooner. I love animals and i just dont know what to do....

Literally walk away from it. Alligators on land are very slow, and won't even try chasing someone because they know full well they're too slow. Especially one of that size.

Is it true that if you die near your cats they will begin eating you within minutes?

Because this kind of grosses me out, I don't want my cats to eat me. Is there a way I can train them to not look at me as food?

Not within minutes.

But imagine you were trapped in a house with nothing to eat and only a dead human. Shit, if there was a zombi apocylips you'd probably reverse the roles and eat kitteh.

>Is it true that if you die near your cats they will begin eating you within minutes?
yes, that is a 100 percent true thing that has happened many times.

Not within minutes.
Absolutely any carnivorous animal that is physically capable of it will eat you when you die if they are otherwise stuck in the house without food.
