Why do people say cats are smart? I seriously don't understand this. You ask "What do they do that's smart?" and cat people say "Oh, they don't do anything because they don't care about you." That is a lie cat people tell themselves, while at the same time insisting their cats love them.
What about for the cat's own benefit? Do they always go to a quiet room to scratch the furniture sneakily, or just start tearing up whatever couch right in front of you? Will they try to get the leftover chicken off the counter, or sit next... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
coincidence or intelligence? a dog will do those things with 100% consistency and undeniable intent. maybe your cat just likes a certain couch or is allowed on the kitchen counters so they don't know they're being sneaky (in which case you're the type of person I never want to visit).
>>2052709 Cat's are not smart, but they can make a 2-step decision that doesn't only profit them.
The same night that my cat snowbell was dying he wouldn't stop meowing until he was in bed with my mom. I never really bothered with checking out what the fatass had, but he couldn't move at that point so I just carried him to her and he shut up. Yes, he was still quite alive when I dropped him off, and he was dead by morning. I'd say that is affection. I'm pretty sure that's a 2 step... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hello /an/ I am scared of spiders. I want to beat this fear I'm thinking of getting a tarantula like pic related, obviously only after doing proper research and getting a proper set up going. I did the same with snakes since i was afraid as well and got a corn snake now i have 3 snakes i absolutely love and aren't afraid of at all. Do you think this is a good idea? How good of a pet will a spider make? Take into account I really don't like dogs or cats or affection seeking pets.
Spider and other animals of same type thread i guess
I'm the guy who advises the clueless dude in this thread >>2052476
I have been keeping tarantulas for a year, there's been a lot of trial and error involved. Google is **not** your friend. But I think they make great pets if you like spiders. They are basically pet rocks except for feeding time, you can catch them webbing, grooming, or drinking, but only if you're pretty much constantly watching. The hardest thing about owning them is you need to make sure the place you're living... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2052745 I'm really liking the overall looks of these Grammostola Rosea I'm seeing at the store I usually buy stuff at. Thing is I'm not sure if i'd be able to handle them as they creep me out a fair bit, but maybe a welding glove would solve that to an extent no? Do you have any care tips toward the species i mentioned? And honestly I'm completle ok with pet rock, its better like that so i can get used to it. Took me 2 months to be able to handle my snake.
Also white spider is way creepier... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I got myself a young Paradoxa praying mantis a week back and I have trouble getting it to eat. It came with a bunch of fat lazy, flightless fruitflies so I let it finish those before I ordered new ones. My local pet store had some issues with their shipment of fruitflies and I wont be getting them until friday (should have gotten them on monday)
I've caught some harmless critters in my garden but now the problem is that it's terrified of everything. It doesn't even attempt to hunt it, only attacking it to defend itself... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2052476 look into molting. most dangerous time for a spider. she will reject food for a while prior to molting and will likely molt on her back looking dead with some silk under her body. remove any prey during that time a cricket or roach could actually eat her instead of the other way around. bitch will be a softshell mirelurk all vulnerable and shit
>>2052468 in the US a hobby that pays for itself is called a business. The government will tax it.
But no, I doubt breeding geckos will pay for itself, especially when you count the cost of the real estate and utilities used to do it. It might make a handy little tax write-off, except that when a business loses money the IRS likes to suddenly call it a hobby.
Pic is an anery palmetto corn snake. The palmetto gene is a very rare mutation that was found, as I understand it, in a single wild caught male corn. It is single recessive. And yes, they are still crazy expensive. Pic is anerythristic + palmetto to achieve the grey/black scales.
Any ideas on what this boy could be, besides a straight up mutt? Looking to possibly adopt him... depends on how well he gets on with cats. Rescue says he is a basset/lab mix, but I don't know how much basset I see in him.
I like Schistasomes(sp?) They lay barbed eggs that bore through the bladder, hatch in the water, infect snails, and when the snails explode, drill through swimmers legs and set up shop in the portal veins. Only one male and one female worm live in each host.
Mine is border collie/golden retriever. probably his mom was a BC/shepherd as one of his siblings has shepherd coloring and my pupper also has a black chin.
their ears look the same. does she have a big ruff? does her tail curl up over her butt when she's interested/happy? how big IS she? BCs get to be about 40-45 pounds. my dog now has just broken 50 pounds recently and he's 10 months old so he only has a little more growing to do.
does she have any interesting habits? a high prey drive? an obsession? herding instinct?
Hi /an/, I have a dog that's 9 weeks old, a german shepherd and rottweiler mix. She's very sweet, but I'm having some issues training her using both negative and positive reinforcement. She won't walk on a leash very well, she keeps sitting and laying down, and she won't keep eye contact with me or stay focused when I attempt to train her. I have a clicker and all, but toys and food don't keep her attention very well when I'm trying to teach her commands. Can you give me some tips on what to do when my dog won't even look at me for more than a second?
>She won't walk on a leash no puppies that age does very well, it's like expecting a toddler to walk perfectly
>she won't keep eye contact with me or stay focused when I attempt to train her puppies have the attention span of a gnat, it's not going to be easy. you need to keep your sessions extremely short and frequent. plus rotties are known for being aloof and difficult to train because of it
what treats are you using to train? the place I work at uses hotdogs and cheese cut... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2052036 My sessions are short and I used these pet store treats that she liked and were expensive, though I forget the name because I threw the empty bag out already. Or carrot bits. I'm just afraid it'll get harder with time, because she's only gonna get bigger. When did your puppy start working with you a little better?
