My neighbor feeds more than 50 feral cats at her farm. She keeps some of the kittens as pets or gives them away. She has one thats outside with a collar on thats not only starving to death but is covered in tumors, or some kind of lumps. Really sweet cat.

ITT we discuss the creation and sharing of bestiaries (I.E. a compendium of fantastical creatures).

Imagine walking through the forest with good ol' Canis when all of a sudden he finds something in the dirt: an old leather journal, bound tight and covered in dirt. You save its contents for your return home.

Carefully removing the thread, dust escapes as the beasts within take their long forgotten breath. The leather shudders in your hand like arising bone as you turn the cover. The name ______ stained in thick, black ink across the page. For hours your fingers...

Don't put in deadly traps.
Good advice.
Base should be heavy and sturdy, so that if the cat is fucking around at the top, it won't make the whole thing fall. That was my mistake.

Also try to use fabrics your cat likes to scratch. If your cat scratches your leather couch, get some fake leather for it, or the carpet, use excess carpet etc.

Isn't this your cat's way of saying she thinks you're incompetent and can't catch your own food? It's a present in the same sense giving an obese women a gym membership is a present.
yeah cats think their owners are just really big hairless cats that can't hunt worth a damn, so they think you're starving/sick and try to help you

it's kinda sweet when you word it right, but you could also interpret it as cats thinking they've been in the business of babysitting your unruly ass since the dawn of domestication

So I have a 7 year old neutered male cat and my girlfriend has a 10 year old spayed female cat. Would it be possible for the two to get along if we ever moved in together? My cat is very friendly and has lived with other cats before. He's a mixed indoor and outdoor cat, going and coming as he pleases but usually staying in during the night.

Hers is a bit territorial and acts aggressively to cats outside. She's an indoor cat.

Are there any possible techniques that would be applicable here?

Pretty much zero and your cat can give her cat FIV.

A friendly reminder to due your due diligence before buying a pet.

For example, my mother loves cats. But her home is also located adjacent to two busy streets (on a corner), neither of which are properly sized (for the amount of road traffic they have, Caltrans regulations require 10 foot lanes, and sidewalks. The roads there are only about 8' with 6' onstreet parking instead of sidewalks. The city has the easement rights to build the proper roads, but does not because homeowners want an extra 10' of space for their driveways/lawns). Also the feces around...

I see the same exact situation with a friend of mine. Two of her cats already died this year because of the same exact reason. I keep telling her to either keep them inside and not let them out at all or just to stop getting cats.
You see, your mother's first issue was that she let the cats outside to begin with. Cats are an indoor pet, and if you leave them outside unsupervised in unenclosed area, then you're not taking proper, safe care of them.

She shouldn't have to account for the street because those cats shouldn't be outside anyway.

I'm not so much against the idea of outdoor cats, but there's a cost associated with it. And that's putting up a proper 8-10 foot fence that they can't climb over.

What gets me though is that the entire neighborhood is like this: nobody wants to pay for anything. It's all crappy postwar homes with the original fencing, driveways, and streets. Except for the part where most people added parking easements. And, lo and behold, every few months there's always something (a dog, a...

Hey /an/, my aunt and uncle have 2 budgies that they thought were both females. As it turns out, one of those birbs is male and had 3 budgie chicks.

They still cant leave the nest on their own and i asked my aunt if i could have one and she said yes. I know about getting a good sized cage for them and to get them lots of toys.

Question is, should i get 1 or 2? Would just 1 get lonely? Will they love? Any other things i should know?

Also how do i get an id or whatever its called. That thing sadistic hamster killer has by his name.

So over the past month or so this thing has grown on my dog's ear. It started as a small bald spot with a barely noticeable bump and has progressed into what you see here.

What is this? Is it safe for me to puncture/squeeze (in a sanitary way, of course)? I'm very poor, can't afford a vet.
21 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
I'm sure you can afford a vet. There are plenty of shelters around larger cities that provide discount rates.
You can work out a payment plan if you can't find one of these clinics.

TL:DR Go to a vet. figure something out. Don't fuck with your dog's ears. He will get an infection in his ear and things will much worse and much more expensive.
I'm with the other poster on owning only if you can afford it, but that look slike the kind they have to get surgery for if it gets really big but otherwise probably won't bother them too much.

What's the breed? Also a vet can tell you if it's too big and whether or not you'll have to do something about it. Don't touch it, you might end up not needing to do anything for a while.
Thanks for the advice.

He's a mix. Not sure of what. He's got the look of a lab, the size/shape of a corgi, and a tail like a shiba. I think he's about 3, but still looks like a puppy.

I would recommend a behaviorist for thr older dog. She will need counter conditioning and it can be difficult to do. I would also take her on walks during off hours when there is a reduced likelihood to find people. All and all, she would benefit greatly from professional help.

Sounds like you are on the right road with the pup though. Only thing I would recommend is adding a word to the action of relocating him to the bed. Before you move him to his bed, tell him "Bed!" AND do what you are doing now.
Well where i live I've noticed a lot of dogs do get out of there yard and I'm not sure when would be safest to take her. I will take her to a behaviorist though thank you.
Thank you I'll the word bed to it.

Also when we play the puppy plays he likes to bite pretty hard when we play i give him another toy to chew on that but he still likes to snap at hands will he grow out of it eventually?
