help me to choose a pet

im looking for a pet to be my companion. low maintenance as it can get. good health. affectionate, cuddly and playful but is ok when im silent. not attention seeking or too curious. is not noisy. is submissive to my simple commands i.e not a stubborn pain in the ass but it doesnt need to learn anything more than that. apartment life. so would love a bigger dog but no much space and they sound more high maintenance. i did research and quizzes etc. considering cats now mostly but still not sure.
also hypoallergenic.

breeds im considering...

As long as the dog's trained well:

>can rest
>is obedient

Cats are for introverted people, though.
Generally speaking.
affectionate introvert here. normally am a dog person but might not be able to give it needed external stimulation. thats why considering cats. obedient as in not going against my will, but i dont expect it to do anything more. dont need much playfulness either
then let me ask for breed advice from cats AND dogs. then i can decide which to go with later. what you guys think about burmese, devon rex and russian blue?

Hey /an/, I got Daisy just last night from a rescue shelter. She hasn't eaten all day and I can here her stomach growling. I also have an 11 year old dominant beagle. Could my older dog affect her eating? How do I get her to eat?

Pic related, thats Daisy :)

She might just be nervous
just give her some time, it can be scary going to a new environment. and make sure your beagle isn't bullying her out of food or anything

maybe try hand feeding her a little bit of food just to see if she'll even take it

So I spotted this guy yesterday. Looks to be a muskrat, and I saw him crawl under my tool shed too so he might be hiding out there.

Anyone have experience with these rodents? I have a house cat, how risky is it to let her outside with this guy around? My cat's not very big, and this sucker looks about 2 feet long. I've read that they can be very territorial.

So after everything you just typed you're considering letting your cat outside. People like you, that completely lack the ability to make rational decisions, should be fucking shot.

>hurr theres a big rat in my yard but ima let cat outside cus it will be funy

>letting your cat outside

fuck off retard
She's an outdoor cat. She hunts frequently. We have all kind of animals out here and she's never had any problems, but this guy is new so I wondered if anyone had experiences with muskrats and could give me first hand advice on how to deal with them.

But whatever, since you apparently know jackshit I'll just set a trap for it or something.

I need an advice /an/.

My cat turned 16 and for the last month almost stopped eating but lately he stopped at all, wasn't even drinking water.

I took him to vet like any reasonable person would to to have him checked, tests came out positive under every possible aspect and the doc said he's perfectly fine just old.

I tried feeding him like a little cat via syringes with a protein mix and some water, but after 2 days he sarted spitting it out and completly refuses to eat anything.

The fuck do i do? I got him when i was 10 and i knew it one...

16 is really old and he's probably just frail at this point. Some animals just kinda stop eating when they know when their time comes.

You could take him to another vet, but honestly if there is something wrong with him what can you really do at this point? Keep him monitored and comfortable unless he's showing outward signs of pain then I would take him to the vet.
Take him to a different vet if you want to a second opinion. It sucks ass when pets get old. Unfortunately cats can't tell us us what's wrong with them. I hope you can find out what's going on.
>Some animals just kinda stop eating when they know when their time comes.
This. He's dying, dude. Keep him cosy.

Hey guys. I am thinking about getting a hedgehog and I was wondering if anyone knew any tips or things I should know before I get one. They are so cute....

If you can't keep it in a warm, quiet, environment, don't get one. Anything below 75~ will send it into hibernation, which is fatal for domesticated hedgehogs. Also, they have shit awful eyesight and rely mostly on hearing and smell. If there's loud noises often, it'll constantly be scared shitless.
Also, they shit. A lot. Especially when they run, so you'll be cleaning out their cages often if you want to be a good owner.
You also probably need to consider that you'll need to get it out just about every day or else it won't warm up to...

can confirm constant night noises and poopiness
don't do it if you are not some surly forester
This. They can't get too hot either. My mom out mine outside while I was staying at my dad's during the summer and he got very sick and passed.
Mine was so noisy in the night. Always crunching food and running on his wheel. It was terrible. God rest his soul.

Just a friendly reminder to:
Always adopt dogs and cats from shelters.
Always spay and neutere dogs and cats
Always donate your time, money, and extra supplies to shelters (especially small, local, no kill shelters!)
I did 32 hours this 4 day weekend and had fun with lots of dogs.
This is Happy Pappy, he is 2 years old and a snuggly ball of fun. He loves squirrels, squeaky toys, and kongs filled with peanut butter.

This is a new puppy that came in a few days ago with two others.
Her brother Joshua got adopted instantly, and is waiting to go home. (He doesn't make a mess of his cage!)
Her other brother is in surgery because he was sick and vomiting everywhere. (Yuk!)

Whats it called when a dog has an underbite?
When I search for dog breeds with underbites, all it brings up are pictures of dogs that have sever underbites, even if its not what I mean.

By Underbites, I mean like Bulldogs, boxers and the like whose bottom jaw line have their bottom teeth in front of their top teeth.

Animal abuse.
Look up brachycephalic breeds
malocclusion is the word you're looking for anon

they're common in dogs who have been bred to such extremes that their faces are pretty much deformed and the jaws/teeth are misaligned as a result. meaning brachycephalic dogs

What kind of butterfly is this? I've done a few searches and haven't been able to come up with anything. I like its wings a lot.

gibberish generally
sometimes referring to them as the wrong species
I sing songs to my pets.

But I sing them from their point of view.

I'm nuts.
I just talk gibberish to them.
Or I put my mouth over their nose and blow and make them sneeze.

Hi guys, I don't post here often but I need some advice on how to keep my dog vegan without it having health problems.

I've gone through 3 new dogs in almost 10 months now and I'm getting a 4th but I'd like to get some advice on diet. My other dogs I'd feed them twice a day solid meals of carrots, rice, potato, collared greens and seasonal fruits which they all seemed to like. I'd mix in almond milk or soy milk sometimes with it too so it was even healthier.

But for some reason they all kept getting thinning coats and two of them broke...

He had fleas like crazy and he was really skinny. He seems to have been left there since we have a park nearby and he was sleeping in front of my house. He had a collar made from an old belt and it was caked in dirt and he hadn't seemed to have bathed in forever. If we find his owners that's great but a name would be nice. Sorry for the snap pic btw.

How does /an/ feel about species conservation? Does anyone have any local species which are at risk, and do you take any action towards their preservation?

The giant freshwater lobsters where I live are under threat partially from poaching but primarily from habitat destruction. I feel like I should maybe do something about it, particularly as right now the local forestry industry is on the brink of clear felling an area upstream of a significant population of the little bastards, and as far as I can tell the measures that are in place to protect them are essentially...

Several people out there keep and breed various species that have gone extinct in the wild or are threatened with it. Seems to be the next best thing to do if the habitat can't be preserved.

Well, /an/, my dog ran off. You might remember me from about a week ago when I asked about him shitting liquid, which cleared up thankfully, but tonight he ran off. He's black as coal, it's winter so it gets dark at 5 pm, and it's 20 degrees out. I have no idea where he could have gone. I live alone and don't particularly have anyone in the area I could ask to help find him, I've been searching for hours now, but the last time someone has seen him was two hours ago and he could have run off in some other direction entirely. My only hope is that he will...
