Well /an/, yesterday we found a female kitten in the street. She was very dirty and we thought she was sick. We took her to the vet and she told us that the kitten was just fine. So i brought her to my appartment and she seems pretty comfortable, she meows a lot whenever she notice we arent around, and purrs whenever she finds us. The only problem is that she WONT use her litter box. We tried putting her faeces in the litter box, and putting her there, but she would just jump out of the box without even sniffing around, its quite annoying, and if she doesnt learn soon, sadly i will have to kick her out of my apartment. Pls help
Btw, idont know if its important but the vet said the kitten was around 1 month old. We bought a cheap cat litter too, i dont know if we should replace it with actual dirt/sand for the time being, since she doesnt seem to recognize the cat litter.
>my kitten that's probably never seen a litterbox in her entire life isn't magically littertrained after a single day, what's her deal
Anon, I appreciate your good intentions in taking her off the street and in asking for help here, but at the same time: come the fuck on, guy. Your kitten is only just barely past the period of still needing mom to stimulate her to piss/poop at all.
/an/ I really want the companionship of a dog. I don't exactly have all the "required funds". I work 40 hours a week but I'm beat after work so no walks or romps (unless I'm off). Work takes the piss out of me so on days that I work, I just rest and recuperate once home. I'm looking for an older dog or senior dog to fit my activity levels when I'm not working.
I can afford things like a leash/harness, collar, food bowls, food, toys, and a doghouse if necessary (although I'm unsure what circumstance I'd be in leaving a senior... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
1. Do not feed your snake more than once every 7 days. 2. What the fuck do you think you're doing feeding a fucking corn snake live prey? Corns have no problem at all with frozen. The only reason to ever live feed is if you have a snake that absolutely refuses frozen and has been on hunger strike so long it has lost a large percentage of its body weight.
I accidentally hit one last night, by the time I noticed him in the road it was too late to swerve or stop (traveling 55mph) so I tried to straddle it and hope for the best. Two thuds were felt, but I know it didn't hit the tires... I kept driving out of panic, but eventually saw "check traction/break assist" lights flashing on my console -- got too freaked out to check if... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Separate container not necessarily so long as you put the least amount of effort in to training your snek that hand in tank does not = eating time. You can do that in a variety of ways. Mostly just making sure your hands do not smell of mouse from feeding other snakes that day if you have others. Putting your hand on snake for a moment before picking them up. Keeping tools you use for feeding (forceps) out of sight when it isn't a feeding day.
As for swallowed substrate, that's a non-issue. If... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2128667 This anon pretty much covered it all spot on I've never taken my snakes out to feed and theyve never mistakenly struck at me, I also try to handle all of my snakes 2-4 times a week so that probably helps.
The petsmart I work at makes us put them in a different container to feed and we have alot of snakes who wont eat for the entire duration we have them especially balls. Have had a cornsnake or two who has ended up snapping at a few people because he was never touched besides feeding time though.

>>2128680 >>2128667 occasionally it will strike when im trying to get it out. though its not very aggressive about it. im not worried about swallowing substrate, theyve gotten this far eating all kinds of shit. the issue is just the amount of work separate feeding is. have to get it up, off of me, into something, get the food in, close it, then pretty much the reverse and its always nippy after that. im thinking enough handling would solve any bite related issues...

I rarely hear anyone taking care of snails and I can only assume there are reasons for that. Just leave the poor thing outside and after maybe some research if you can find another one you can try to keep it alive.
If you want to be evil though you can leave it outside with a circle of salt around of it.
Hey /an/, I found this little guy tumbling over on the side of the road near my house the other day. Hey was about to be gutted by two cats. I bundled him up, and took him home but now I'm wondering if that was smart becuase he doesn't make any noise, and he has blue eyes. So I'm wondering if he's still a baby. If he is can't really help him, but the reason I don't wanna put him back where I found him is because he looses his balance and falls over a lot (especially when he's scared). He can't fly and isn't drink water.
