what's the mechanism behind "cuteness"? Why we see stuff like pic related we suddenly feel warm and fuzzy, and we want to cuddle and protect them? Is it some sort of defense? Are we the only specie that feels like this?
>>2061964 Seems like a basic social creature thing, like I'm assuming it's similar to feeling things like empathy, pity, for something, and so on.
I'm not quite sure why it is especially for males so difficult a concept to deal with. Also there are things in the animal kingdom like a male lion that kills cubs of another lion, but may play with cubs of his own (I'm making the assumption that adult animal engaging in play is somewhat close to the "human finding something cute"). I guess most... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Dogs evolved to be cute so humans would take care of them more :3
Humans are engineered since childhood that outer beauty doesnt matter, what matters most is how kind a person is..
when it comes to dogs its quite the opposite, people care about how their dog looks, does it look like a wolf? instant purchase. is it cute like a lion? boom, get me that shit. does it look like a dog? pound.
I recently put my cat on a wet food diet after realizing she was pretty fat from dry food free feeding.
Now I'm worried she is losing too much weight. I read something before that an owner should be concerned if there is a loss of weight near the neck/back area. She looks very odd proportionally right now. Does anybody have any clue what I'm referring to?
Guys i really need somebody to comfort me right now. I feel so fucking horrible with the way this planet is at the moment. I have so much to complain about that it's not even worth it to write all down. People are so fucking selfish and it's killing me. I just watched a video on the truth about egg production and as you probably expect it's more than disgusting.
Convince me not to kill as many human beings as i can
So, i'm looking after a friend's cat, i've never met it before because I haven't been around to his place since he got with his new girlfriend (actually her cat). It's incredibly friendly and smoochy with humans, however it's an absolute cunt to my dogs.
Basically, I have 2 Australian Shepherds, and they are super friendly. The first couple of days I let the cat do it's own thing and left it without introducing the dogs for more than a few seconds. It hisses and my dogs know it doesn't want to be disturbed and they keep their distance/leave.
but after a couple more days, this cat has realised that my dogs will not hurt it or anything, so it just attacks them from hiding spots whenever it can. And even chases them down hallways and etc.. whenever they come near it.
My male dog doesn't really care, he seems to be handling it better, sort of standing off sometimes when he doesn't want to move, or really wants to get from downstairs to my room upstairs and the cat is up the top, he'll slowly make his way past it and it won't hiss and slap at him for being cautious. (i've never seen him so tense in my life when he does this) However my female dog (who ironically is usually the most ready for a confrontation outside of this situation) is just uttely terrified of it, and here's the kicker, she grew up with a cat, the male didn't. I can see the utter fear in her face when I hear her whinging and come downstairs where she's hiding under a table, and looks at me with pitiful eyes of abandonment.
So basically I am forced to lock either the cat away in a room by itself, or the dogs in my room with me.
I don't want to risk sleeping again and letting them loose to sort their shit, because that just resulted in an escalation of this cat's shitty beheaviour the last time I did it. (no scratch marks on noses or anything yet, but if this cat causes my dogs any injury with his shitty attacks, i'll be locking it in a room for the entire month it's staying here)
>>2061690 Another issue is that it's unpredictable as fuck, one moment my boy will actually lay down next to it in my room, and it'll look at him, then lay back down to sleep, and the next minute it will get up, he'll move his head to see what's going on (hearing that the cat moved) and it'll hiss and slap/scratch him. One minute it'll walk past them and they it without a problem, the next it'll get near em, haunch it's back, hiss and slap/chase them.
I get that the cat is new to the house and will be anxious, so i'm basically keeping the dogs with me and letting the cat wander around and get more confident/comfortable before I make any major decisions regarding what I do next.
But any tips on handling this terrorist cunt of a cat? I'm not letting my dogs develop some anxiety problem or unnecessary fear of cats just to give this cat a nice month of staying here.
trolling aside I agree. it's either niggers who buy them becuase they look tough and don't train them, or annoying pitbull apologist women who keep sharing vids of pitbulls with kittens or some shit and writing "careful, that pit might viciously attack you with kisses!"
So lately I've been trying to figure out what some of the plants/trees around me are. I've managed to find out what most of them are, not I haven't had any luck with this one. It's like a small bushy tree, small start shaped yellow flowers. Does anyone know what plant this is? I live in the Sydney area of Australia, so that should rule of some stuff. I'll post the few pictures I took.
My gf has a mini rex, she got a month or so ago. We took it for a health check when we got it and the vet said everything was fine.
A couple of days later we noticed the rabbit was drooling so it went to the vet who said it was an abscess which could be drained for £150 plus 50 for anti-biotics/painkiller etc.
The vet then suggested after a follow up check that she see a teeth specialist. The specialist quoted £750 and said that included draining the abscess which, apparently, hasn't been drained.
He then said that after this there was a strong chance of ongoing dental work and it might be better to put the rabbit down (after spending another 150 on a blood test and some cream).
We're not sure what to do and what to do given the vets' conflicting stories (fine/abscess/terminal). The rabbit is starting to eat whole foods again using her teeth and is generally bearing up. I've no experience of rabbits but looking at the rabbit now I can't help think it's unethical to put it to sleep. Is there something that can be done or are we just delaying the inevitable?
>>2060116 feed it with stuff that makes it grind it's teeth and you shouldn't put it down unless you can't control the bunnies teeth growth which you can by feeding it the right things like spinach selleri broccoli cabbage (only like a leaf or two a day) carrots (only in small amounts) cauliflower
always give it at least three of the things each day!
