The plant general: Bamboo edition
I am become bamboo, the destroyer of gardens.

Welcome to /plant/, the resident plant general thread. This is a magical place where anons buy plant seeds from suspicious dealers in China, where next level veganism starts gaining a foot hold and where I still haven't gotten my Sarracenia Rosea.

/Plant/ is for the discussion of plants (obviously). Horticulturists, hobbyists and botanists welcome! Questions about plants? Want to show off your two inch dick-I mean plant? Maybe you want to start growing? Well come on over to...

>Part 1
So, about 13 years back, a little pet shop opened up in my town. The owners were an older couple, really sweet people. They took very good care of their animals and kept the environment clean, etc. Well about 10 years after they opened, they had to sell the place (I can't remember why, either financial or they just wanted to retire), and they ended up selling it to some lady.

Now, this lady isn't a bad lady. She's very nice and friendy, but in the time she has had this petshop, she has ran it into the ground.

>part 2

Well, up until this point, I had thought the old owners completely sold the place and had no say in the matter. I wasn't aware that they were still in the picture.

So, here's what I need help with /an/.

Should I look into taking out a loan at the bank and possibly buying this little shop? I wasn't best buds with the owners before, but I went in their pretty frequently and they basically saw me grow up. I also absolutely love working with any kinds of animals, and I hate what this shop has become. I would love to bring it back towards what it used to be, with a clean healthy environment and happy animals.

Problem is I don't know how profitable it would be, and I assume I would need some other source of income. BUT, this is my dream job and I'm chomping at the bits trying to decide if I try to contact the old owners or not. I would LOVE to do this, but I don't know if it's worth it as far as how much time I will need to invest, and if it will eventually be profitable or not.

I'm definitely not an expert, but I say go for it. It'd probably take a lot of time out of your day, and I'm pretty sure that pet shops aren't very profitable, but if owning a pet shop is your dream and you really love animals you should. You should be aware, however, that it will probably lead to disaster if you aren't good at it, don't love animals enough, can't handle the extra work, etc.

Ultimately, I'd say that it's a great idea, but you should look before you leap.
>>
>>2135203

i don't think running a pet store is a one person operation. you would definitely need someone to help you with the finances. i don't think the current owner is letting the place become such a mess because she's cruel. maybe she's incredibly careless but it's also possible that it's just a lot of work.

i think i've heard that most businesses aren't profitable in their first year of operation. maybe this wouldn't apply to you since you'd be taking over but it's something you should consider.

finally, expect to become disenchanted. when you spend 60 hour weeks cleaning up animal cages and miscellaneous managerial work it can be overwhelming and unsatisfying.

try to ask as many questions as you can from the mom and pop regarding how running the business was for them and how they expect it to be for you. maybe the market's not good anymore in your area or something

i'm not exactly a business expert myself so i just listed my personal concerns were i in your position. if anyone knows better and disagrees with anything i'm saying or wants to supplement with more information please go ahead

what the fuck is this on my dogs ears ???
he got in to a brief scuffle with another dog yesterday so at first i thought it was just a scratch from that, or blood that dried up..

but i think i remember him reacting to the pain before the scuffle (that ear is very sensitive to the touch, only that one ear is affected the other is normal) so that makes me question if its mites, infection, etc etc

I found a newborn, blind kitten on the 22 of April, and since then I've been taking care of it.

I've been nursing it, feeding it, keeping it warm, playing with it since it's first days here until today. It had no one but me.

It started to walk, play, eat on it's own, it grew fond of me - always went whereever I went around the house, it even started to sleep on my clothes and in my bed.

The problem is that it didn't want to use it's litter box, even though I trained it, and it made a mess around the house, which I always had...

Don't be so hard on yourself, chap. In fact, I'd recommend you go get another baby kitten. Who cares if you have another outburst? It's just a shitty cat. That's my professional opinion, of course.

As far as chemical castration? Sounds kinky, but I'm an old fashioned physical type of guy.

Prone to obesity and diabetes, can get seizures fairly easily for being fed wrong, they are never full so you HAVE to portion their meals every day, always. And they will throw a tantrum for more (which is stomping and huffing). They are stubborn as dicks and will get mad at you (not mean) if they don't get their way

They are not biters but can, they use the litter box really great but not as good as a cat. They love love love being held, hugged, snuggled, and pet everywhere but the tail. They bond to you as close as a dog.

They will dig, a lot, so carpet...
