dont remember the name but they're kind of like a long ammonite. modern equivalent would probably be the nautilus.

I believe their name started with a P. Also ammonites and nautilus are round... spiral shaped fossils right? I may be wrong so don't quote me.

Litter Box Unhooded.jpg
31 KB,
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.

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...

If you can't afford to drop $1,000 for vet bills at any given time you can't afford a dog, anon

I know you're lonely but getting an animal you can't take care of isn't going to magically cure your mental problems, and that dog deserves a real family who can take care of him or her properly

This.

Don't put yourself in the position where you'll eventually have to watch your friend suffer slowly and die because of your inability to provide.

Get a girlfriend instead. Cheaper, legal to have sex with, and you can swap her for a new one when you get bored.

What do you think, is she not hungry or is the mouse too big? I fed her 4 pinkies 2 days ago and I thought she looked hungry still.

Mouse is a bit big, but still is swallowable.
Also make sure you don't leave the mouse in there for any length of time unsupervised.

Is this bait? It seems like bait.

Fuck it.

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.

Feed in habitat vs feed in separate container
pros/ cons

>>2128659

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...

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.

Substrate...

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 always had dogs, but never a Cat, my wife wanted a Cat so we got a little one.

The problem is that I don't know how much what to do.


She stinks a little. How to properly bath her?

She seems to be a bit lonely, she's always meowning when I'm not playing with her. I play trow balls for her and she plays with it for 10min and then she wants me and starts to meow.

When I extend my hand to her she rubb her head and then her back in my hands.

If I ignore and don't play when she is meowning she just sleeps.

So please...

Yes, but what can I do with all that energy? I do play with her, but I can't do that all the time. Also which kinds of games she would enjoy?

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.
