Holy shit did you not think to go to the vet at any point?
Oh yeah I forgot to mention there's not vet near me that does mice
especially they are feeder mice but they broke the record of longest lasting, its been over a year theyve been going

the story behind how this happened, because i noticed when it did, was when it was super cold up here and the heater fucked up and they couldn't get some heat so they got super lethargic and it wasn't a pretty sight, i went to go get a portable heater and it allowed them to "come back to life" since then the mother (the other 2 are daughters) has been just stressed out and always grooming only one daughter to the point of baldness
It's not uncommon for feeder mice to live over 1 year.

At this point it sounds like OCD caused by something that was irritating her. Basically what happens is, mouse needs to itch. for sake of conversation we will say she had an allergy to something. She itches contentiously. You fix the problem, whether you meant to or not, or it goes away or the mouse built a tolerance. But now, the scratching is a habit. She does it just out of habit now, even if she is no longer allergic and no longer itchy. It's...

4chan, I'm so sad. My three and a half year old cat is dying from liver failure I can't afford to treat, but I can't afford to have him euthanized, either. I understand the ASPCA offers discounted euthanasia services, but the idea of taking him someplace like that to die just rips out my heart.

You guys, please help me. Is there anything I can do, anything I can give him, to give him a painless and comfortable death? I've been trying to research but the only thing I can find people talking about is Tylenol, which seems like an inhumane and painful death.

Fuck, why is this happening? It hurts so bad, /an/. Benedict is the most wonderful animal I've ever owned, I love him so much. And he's just so young. Fuck, oh Christ.

I'm genuinely sorry you're having to go through this and I know your pain. There's a few options but none will be fun to do.

I'd suggest an escape bag. If that's out of your price range, you can even put him in your car and run a tube from the muffler to the inside.

If you have a gun, you could pull an "Old Yeller", but that could be messy.
I'd find a friend with a gun, if you don't have one yourself.

Not trolling. My father put down many of our pets that way. A painless death in a familiar location is one of the better ways to go.

Have more money before you take on a pet next time.

I'm sorry for your loss, op.
If the liver failure is treatable there is a chance that if you give your cat to a shelter, they will give it the medication it needs then adopt it out to someone who knows and can afford the meds. Where I worked people, especially old people, LOVED adopting cats with medical problems. "They have to take their pills, just like me" or "poor thing, let me give you a good life."

If the only choice is death with you, wouldn't it be better to give your cat a chance, however slim, by bringing it to a shelter

I want to donate some food and toys to my local animal shelter. I have a budget of 100 dollars. How far can I stretch it? where can I go that might be willing to add extra food and stuff?
4 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Ask your local shelter what they need. Some even accept old clothes or handmade dog beds, but shelters typically have some sort of 'wish list' of things they need the most. Also ask about what they won't accept.
That works.
Also, donating the money itself tends to work well, considering they know exactly where to spend it, and tend to get stuff at a discounted price.
In our shelter most usefull donations are by order:

1-Dry Food
2-Food Cans
3-Lesmania Medication
4-Actual money to buy more expensive things that are not obtainable with donations (f.e a clothes washing machine), medicines, vets, mandatory shots, chip and sterilisation of our cats and dogs.
5-Old Clothes and towels and cat beds (dogs love to destroy that stuf whrn playing together, and most cats hate to share)
6-Toys for cats and dogs.
7-Anything is welcome.

Also some vets donate their time and do shots, visits and sterilisations for free. We...

115 KB,
I've spent too much money buying cannabis from others. I really just want to be able to grow the stuff by myself.

- how illegal is it to grow cannabis?
- how do I not get caught / get away with it?
- how many cannabis plants would I have to grow in order to smoke at least once a week for a year?
- how much would it cost to maintain these plants? would I have to raise new saplings every year?

Just wait a couple years until it's legalized in the west.
You're better off just buying it if legality is a real worry to you. If you're caught growing, you're most likely be charged with not only possession, but intention to sell. Weed laws vary so much, and so do the judges so you're better off with getting a misdemeanor than a felony.
Well you could start by telling us your country...

So, my cat usually enjoys getting on top of the tub while I'm showering and drinking/playing with the showerhead. I usually let her.

Today she jumped inside my tub, so I kept her out of the soap as much as I could and played with her, then gently scrubbed her with a towel. She wasn't drenched or anything so she got dry pretty quickly.

My question is is this bad for her health? Should I keep her out of the bathroom in the future? She really enjoyed it so I doubt I can stop her from doing that if she's there.

.... Are you serious anon?

Are you trying to kill your cat with dihydrogen monoxide?

But no seriously, your cat's probably okay, you did the right thing, don't shampoo the cat cause the cat will lick it out. On the plus side if the cat likes it this means that you have a safe way to bathe your cat if it gets into something terrible
Thank you. I'm mostly concerned about her getting cold or it being bad for her skin or something.

Okay so basically I got a kitten about 2weeks ago, she is 7 or 8 weeks old now. (Pic related)
The first day I got her she was quite timid as expected, hiding from me and such so I slowly introduced her to the whole house over the following week. I've been socialising her lots and trying to have friends play and cuddle with her while they're over and she has opened up a lot.

So the problem I've been having is that sometimes she lashes out and starts biting me whilst making 'woofing' noises like a sharp exhale out her mouth.
When she starts...

This is playing and it's normal and will decrease in intensity as she matures.
So I'm not an expert, BUT, this is what I used to do with kittens over three months old (cause I feel like anything younger is a little silly to try and teach yet).

When my kitten would bite too hard, I would try to startle him with a sharp 'hey!'. If that didn't work, I would then scruff him-not hard! Just enough to get him to stop what he was doing, then let go. If THAT didn't work, then I would use a squirt bottle (that you always have with you at this stage because kittens are crazy and like to jump on dangerous stoves and woodstoves) and...

I am planning to get a dog in the near future! I live in an apartment and work from home. This will not be my first dog, but It will be my first dog in an apartment building.

I guess I have two concerns:
1. that I will get a very noisy dog that upsets the other tenants in my building
2. that I will get a dog that is upset by living in a major city with lots of people.

Does anybody have any advice on where to start and what to look for?

For #1:
Avoid; Beagles, basset hounds, Jack r. terrier, keeshond, maltese, basically most terriers and hounds and toy breeds.
Research on google, top quiet breeds. That's the reason I got a Shiba Inu.

For #2:
You really just need to socialize the dog very well by taking it to those kinds of places OFTEN. Socialize that little shitter from day one as much as possible, then it'll be smooth sailing.
I'd recommend getting a lab as they are very friendly, or a goldie.
I wouldn't...

Once you've decided on a breed, you can use this:
(For US) http://marketplace.akc.org/puppies
(For CAD) http://www.ckc.ca/Choosing-a-Dog/PuppyList/Default.aspx
To search for reputable breeders.
These kennel club sites can also help you learn more about breeds you are interested in and you can pick your ideal.
for example;
An apartment dog would ideally be a smaller breed so it doesn't feel enclosed in a tighter space than a large breed would.
Having a small dog also means less food to feed, so you'd save money.
And also means you don't have to go on hour long runs just to get their appropriate amount of energy.
So let's say, by using this reliable link:
and we choose an American Eskimo (miniature)
Very trainable, though they need exercise, not sure if that'll be another problem.
Requires a lot of grooming
But they are very lovable and loving dogs. So they'd be easy to socialize.

any other questions, bb?
>1. that I will get a very noisy dog that upsets the other tenants in my building
I was lucky enough to end up with a dog that just plain doesn't bark much, but he was just a babby when I got him, so I just left a note on my door saying, "I got a new puppy and we are working on crate-training. I work from x-to-x but my hours are flexible; if he's making any noise and it's totally unbearable, please call [my number] and I will be home ASAP. Thanks!" I never got...

Post close up pic of stem. Chance it could be a faded panny (psychoactive). Highly likely it's just a standard horse-shit mushroom.

On second thought, that really doesn't look like an edible or psychoactive mushroom. Don't eat it.
Thanks. We have just had some rain and there are clumps growing in the grass

Can a green cheek conure live in the same cage as a canary, considering they will both be babies?

Do conure have different temperaments depending on their color mutation? I'm deciding between a cinnamon or turquoise.

I know there's a bird thread but everyone is too focused on the Dutchman.

> think Dutchman is a kind of bird
> never heard of it
> go to bird thread to check it out
> it's bugguy arguing about consciousness in birds
is it possible? yea anythings possible
different temperaments based on color? it has more to do with bloodline, but individuals of a species always vary

if you want to do it, then do it and tell us how it works out. worse case is conure will kill the finch. finches are shit tier anyway- nothing of value will be lost.

anyone telling you anything else is full of shit

Hey /an/. I have an mystery regarding my ball python I was wondering if you guys could help me out with. Basically I set up 2 different hidey homes for him, one with a heat pad set at 88 degrees Fahrenheit and one without a heat pad. I figured he wouldn't have to choose between security and the ideal temperature. Yet, even though the room is relatively cool he seems to prefer the home without the heat blanket. In fact, he seemed a bit cool to the touch when I picked him up from the cool home this morning. Does he not realize the other home is warmer? Is there some other...

It's probably shape/texture related, if it won't freak him out try switching the hidey homes around. But leave the heat pad in place.

My ball python had been digging her head into the corner of my bedroom for the past 30 minutes. I've had her for about 6 months now and she's let out pretty much anytime she wants but today is the first time I've seen her do this. Her nose looks red and i'm unsure if it's because of her smashing it against the wall or she's smashing it because something is wrong with her. Advice?
