>>2020620 A properly bred Munchkin is not hindered much at all by the short legs. I am friends with someone who shows and breeds Munchkins. I have seen her Munks jump from the floor to the top of the fridge.
>>2020621 Yes. Breeds that have proportionally long legs include the Cornish Rex, the Peterbald and the Oriental group (Siamese, Colorpoint Shorthair, Oriental Shorthair, Balinese/Javanese, Oriental Longhair).
I want to rescue an adult cat from a local overcrowded shelter but I live alone and work 40 hours a week + having a social life of 10-ish hours a week so that's around 50 hours a week I won't be able to give the cat company.
Is this ok or should I pass? I'd buy lots of toys and he'd have some nice window views
It's fine, especially as you're looking at adopting an adult cat. Tell the shelter what you're looking for, but they should have literally dozens of cats that would be perfectly happy getting in 50 hours a week of quiet napping or grooming time while you're out so long as you spend time with them when you're at home. You could also adopt a pair of cats that enjoy each other's company but it's not a requirement if you'd prefer just one, there are plenty of cats that prefer being the only cat in the household.
The song I'm interested in can be heard faintly in the background of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czvVd71tDQM, specifically between 0:05 - 0:09, 0:18 - 0:22, and 0:35 - 0:39. It's the one that sort of sounds like hoo HOO hoo, hoo, hoo. I've looked through several youtube clips of owls but I haven't been able to match it yet.
So i felt really bad about a lot of animals because human beings tread them and nature like shit. I felt so bad to the point that i'm now in a psychiatric clinic. My psychologist said instead of complaining i should do something about animal abuse etc. What can i do? Are there any clubs or something i can join like peta? I would really like to help so please tell me what i can do
>>2020562 Probably do work at the ASPCA or local shelter groups. Don't do anything that involves PETA. If you have the resources, adopt an animal. Tbh senpai, if something like that is putting you in the psych clinic, you probably have am underlying problem that has nothing to do with animals.
god damn, meta memes are one of the few reasons i still come to 4chan.
also, hell yea nigga you can volunteer anywhere doing almost anything. h/o lemme grab this site for you real quick.
there ya go, you can look for shelters that need help (ie all of them) and you might even be lucky and live in an area where you can narrow results down to something specific to what you're asking for.
Betta general and other questions. so my betta has started to move a lot less and sit in weird spots like a corner that he never goes in or the bottom of the tank. I just cured him of ich and since then he has been acting a bit odd. When i give him a nudge he starts to swim around then go back to being a statue. What do?
>>2020590 No, I was by far more bothered by that the movie sucked. What the fuck was up with plotasaurus rex? It apparently had all these amazing abilities it used exactly once for the sake of the plot. It didn't even look any cooler than any other theropod.
Anyone got any tips on a first time owner of a herding breed? Border collies, cattle dogs etc. I have an 8 week old kelpie pup, grew up with labradors and it's been very different so far.
My main issue is nipping, especially at heels, hands and at clothing. I've been redirecting her to a toy (ball, tug toy, kong) but it doesn't always work especially when she is hyper. When she bites me I yell out "OW" really loudly and she stops about half of the time.
I have never used physical discipline on any of my dogs, but I need... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
You're already doing what you should be, but there's a few more things you can do to get her to stop:
When she nips you and you say "OW"/yelp, you should also make it clear that playtime/interaction stops when she does this.
This means that if you're playing and she gets nippy, you yelp and then leave the room and ignore her completely for a moment. It doesn't take long for them to realize that if they want playtime and attention, they can't bite.
Alternatively, she's all hyper and you are walking through the house... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Scruff them severely, force them onto their back, spray them with the smelly shit, and then put them outside
Stuff like that
You're talking about a breed that's literally been bred for hundreds of years to specifically herd livestock, which involves nipping and biting them to get in line, so good luck lol
I have one and my only problem is that he's inexhaustible, fucking thing can run for 3 hours straight a day and not be tired, so he gets really whiny about going outside even after the point a normal dog would be dead tired
I'm the kind of person who has no friends and is a loner, but I love animals and pets. I'm getting ready to live alone, and I'm not sure if my old dog will be able to make the journey with me(she probably will). I think I'd like to get a second pet, a cat to keep her and I extra company. But while I love cats, typical cat behavior isn't too appealing, Bengals seem more "dog" like in their affection, obedience and ability to be trained. Is that true? Thoughts?
I'd consider waiting until your dog has passed away. It's fairly unusual for cats and dogs to really enjoy each other's company and she may just find it stressful having something as active as a Bengal or Savannah kitten around the house.
I've had shit luck the past two weeks. Company location closed and I was transfered to a new city. Away from friends (no contact with family). Upon coming here I broke my leg painting my new place. I'm to be off of it at least another three weeks.
I have my dog with me who is a medium breed and high energy. I use to be able to take him on one to two hour walks daily which keeps him level. Of course in an air cast with crutches this isn't an option. I've took to lunging my dog much like you would a horse to check its gait and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
That really is pretty shitty luck, but at least I can't see any problems with running your dog in circles. Only thing I can suggest is making sure he runs both clockwise and anti-clockwise- it's probably less important with dogs as they're much smaller and less affected by slight imbalances, but horses need to be lunged in both directions for balance and flexibility and it won't hurt him to change direction. If he likes fetch, that can also be pretty good as he's sprinting repeatedly while you're sitting still- you can get those handy toys that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
