I own a caique and i absolutely love the scent of burning candles
But when i bought her i found out that i could not burn candles with her around.
Unfortunately my family has given me a crapton of yankee candle stuff for xmas.
How fatal are candles for my bird? When i look it up all i get is "very bad"
Can i not light them anywhere in the house? Can i light them in one room and have her in another, ventilated room?
Should i just get rid of the candles?
Pic related. Is her

Ditch the candles. It's not worth killing your bird.
it could burn it's eye

it could eat the wax and choke

don't ditch the candles but be very cautious, don't light one up when she is in the same room .
If i had a scented candle lit all day and had her in another room..would it hurt her if i brought her out into the room w/ the candle even after it was put out and put away?
Do the scents in them irritate birds? I know some very strong scents irritate animals, just dont know what affects them and what doesn't

I don't know much about cat breeds, but my mommy has a really cute long-haired black and white cat. If I got a cat I'd like one like this. She says it's just a 'domesticated longhaired' but does anyone know the breed?

Domestic longhair, or mutt cat. The vast majority of pet cats are mutts. If your mom had a purebred she would know it.
Listen to your mother, she knows a lot more than you do.
Like the other anons said, domestic longhair tuxedo. Go to a shelter and adopt whoever you fall in love with, regardless of color.

Why do people get so obsessed with birds? Like amateur bird watchers I mean. They'll drive 8 hours each way just at the chance to see a new bird, and sit out in the cold for hours until they do. What is the fascination, can someone explain it to me? I think birds are okay but I wouldn't wake up at 4am to go sit in the snow to look at a goose. I ask because a lot of the people where I work go apeshit for the hobby and I ask why they like birds and no one can really explain it. Yet there are some that get up at dawn every day to go do it.

I've gotten up at 4am to look at geese but my intention was to shoot them with my shotgun and not a camera.

Its like pokemon for the real world.

There's something incredible about seeing a bird that only a few people will ever see.

But your question is silly, why would people fly across oceans, travel for hours for a look at an elephant they can see in a zoo?

Bug collectors are even worse.
I'm obsessed with birds but I've only gone out of my way once or twice to view some, such as snowy owls that decided to show up in a large group. It was like an hour drive for that, and another drive was to go watch some seals. My other bird watching adventures just goes along with hiking/taking walks, because I like to be outdoors. I also stop to watch deer, moose and bears(from a distance, of course).

I just like the outdoors and I guess bird watching is just similar to sitting by your fishtank. Its just nice to look at it.

Some I just got this puppy for christmas. As far as breed I'm not too sure. The givers said she had a quarter wolf in her and one of her parents was lab.

You guys have any tips as far training and raising her? I have a sort of companionated-take-her-most-places idea for her.

I guess we can start off with the DON'Ts of dog raising. What are the most common mistakes and misconceptions you see in the most ordinary house hold environment
She's not a quarter wolf. Try clicker training lots of sites
Would you say clicker training yields better results as opposed to treat based rewards. Should I do both or is it one of those trial and error sort of things

Air plants are creepy but I like them. I live up north so we don't have anything like them. When visiting Florida I've seen them clinging to branches and abandoned objects where plants shouldn't be. It lends them an otherworldly, eldritch quality, and I picture them moving when nobody's looking.

These are cat eyes, OP

Most if not at all cats tend to have them
You mean coloration and patterns? I don't think so. They are neat though.

I'm planning on getting a snake in a couple of years, maybe after my cats have aged (one is 4, one is approximately 3) so the snek doesn't have any risks with the cats, or the other way around.
Anyway, I want to know, what kind of snake would you recommend to a reptile newbie? What kind of care would it require?
5 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Snake will have to be kept away from the cats regardless of their age.

Colubrids are generally the easiest to start with; corns, kings, milks. Small boids; Kenyan sand boa, eosy boa. Ball pythons often get mentioned but, due to their eating habits, some new keepers get frustrated with them.

Google care sheets for each species.
*Rosy boa. Not eosy.
Those two animals don't mix well at all. They will need complete separation at all times. If the snake is too small the cat will try to kill it and if the snake is too big the snake will try to kill the cat.

tl;dr version: look into ball pythons and corn snakes and branch out from there

I want to keep goat(s) for milk, but from what I hear you need to mate them each year for them to produce milk. What is the most feasible way to do this? Get a male goat?

What do I do with their kids?

Introduce a brown recluse as a breeding partner for the goat.
>What is the most feasible way to do this?
>What do I do with their kids?
Eat them. Or sell them to hungry people.
>Eat them. Or sell them to hungry people.
Sounds good. Could always feed them to my other pets as well.

seriously though, we either need to become more responsible, or we should all perish. for the good of the beautiful creatures we share this planet with.

You can perish if you want, no skin off my nose. But if you come anywhere near me with that theory, I'll make sure to perish you much faster than you planned.
do Mother Nature a favor and kill yourself first.

I even said I would rather treat nature with more respect, and live more responsibly.

That wasn't even a theory, it was complete fiction.

We had to put our family dog we had for 10 years to sleep a few days ago and it doesn't feel that different. I'm such an asshole. Has this happened to anyone else?

A few days ago we put my 15 year old beagle to sleep after he entered organ failure. I was sad the day of, and actually cried (well, more like teared up that night after I saw his collar with his nametag on it

But nothing really feels that different now that it's a few days after his death. Given that he was a beagle he was already pretty low energy, and the past year or two with his age,...

See, even looking at this picture as I posted this makes me feel sad and about to cry again, but it's like unless I see a direct reminder of him, I haven't even thought about it, and this is only 2 days after hes gone. In a month I'll probably forget that he even existed...
Why are you even writing this.
Feeling guilty because you dont miss him enough is retarded.
>for the past few years he has also regularly used the bathroom in the house, seemingly out of boredom, so a lot of times I would come home to a piss and shit-stench filled house

you're relieved that he's gone because you don't come home to that anymore ie. a burden has been lifted. you love him and miss him, but you're more happy that you can live your life without worrying about the shit to come home to.

in my opinion that's completely normal.
