Hey /an/, yesterday I was mowing the lawn as usual, and when I was done, I noticed a little fucker on my ankle. Pic of the little shit. Can someone identify the little shit, and please help me know if I should be aware that I am now allergic to red meat? I don't think it is a Lone Star Tick, but I would like to hear other people's inputs. Thanks, Anon.
How do I get a cat to stop yowling and scratching at the floor at night?
She'll walk around the house making a loud yowling noise for hours. She also will pick a corner - usually the corner of my door - and act like she's trying to dig through the floor. I've tried flashing her with my dick but she doesn't seem to mind so idk how effective that is at getting her to stop.
If I make a loud noise or throw something (like a sock, not a brick or anything hard) at her, that'll make her scurry off and stop for a bit. I feel like that can't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

My 2 year old cat just poops too much, I change his litter box every single time he poops. He also farts a lot. While his poop is not abnormal looking, he just poops maybe 5-6 times a day. The vet recommended probiotics, and even suggested regular unsweetened yogurt. The litter we buy just won't mask the smell. I'm not expecting a litter brand to mask the smell completely, but something that won't make my whole house stink. Already tried baking soda and it doesn't work. Pic related the poopy boy
So my dog has been picking up his bowl(stainless steel) and running around and chewing on it. Is this normal? He is a Wheaten Terrier, 8 Yrs old. He does this with both his water bowl and sometimes food bowl, anyone else see this happen? Pic related, my dog
>>2186487 >is this normal? Yes. Dogs eat and drink from these bowls, so they consider them "thiers" to do with as they please. If my dog wants to get my attention that her water bowl is empty she throws her stainless bowl around my tile kitchen. Literally picks it up with her mouth, throws her head back and let's go. Then she stands in the kitchen and looks at me. Bossy little bitch.
>>2186495 >I have to keep him in the backyard Assuming the dog is just not crying out for attention, it could just be playful. Put some better chew toys out for it, and regular exercises and socialization to correct bad behavior.
So /an/, I know someone who doesn't have the time or energy to walk her dog, and it chews up all of her things out of boredom. I am aware of dog treadmills, but they are too bulky and too expensive for this person. I know there must be some dog lovers here with an idea that will save poor dogger from a life of apathy and boredom. If it matters, the dog is quite large and very energetic, and it's also still quite young.
>>2186381 Just walk your damn dog you lazy fucker. Exercise, mental stimulation and interaction with the outside world are absolute necessities for dogs, if a person can't accept that then they shouldn't be allowed to own one.
So when I came home this evening a cat was at my door.

>>2186104 >If he is not chipped I plan on dropping him at a small local cat shelter, where he is likely to be adopted. That's the best decision. Alternatively, find someone who's looking to own a cat and give it to them (if not chipped, obviously).
If a cat is infected with rabies, what's the incubation period until it becomes contagious?
Asking cause I got this kitten from a in-outdoors cat and have had him for over a month and a half. He scratches me regularly and hasn't shown any symptoms yet. I wanna vaccinate him but am paranoid of missing the symptoms of he suddenly shows them while vaccinated.
>>2186008 >The average incubation period of rabies in cats is two months but may vary from two weeks to several months or even more, depending on the dose of virus transmitted and the severity and site of the wound.
How hard is it to type "incubation cats rabies" into google?
I had a cockatiel for about 17 years growing up but other than her just chilling on me whistling to me and kisses, conures seem more interactive. I would say Quaker parrots would be an option but sometimes I move around in places where its illegal and I wouldn't want to lose it. I also have experience with cockatoos and small macaws(not mine, just bird sitting) but I want a silly bird friend as much as I think larger parrots look neat but my requirements are being playful/interactive and unbearably loud forever like cockatoos are.
>>2186023 >>2186032 I know sun conures are loud(my cousins is oddly not but I assume he is just a minority). Ive known a lot of green cheeks and they don't seem too loud. They were little darlings. Maybe I should specifiy that I don't mind noise. I've been around a lot of birds. Noise is fine but what you would get from a cockatoo, large macaw, etc all the time is not. My own cockatiel was very noisy since she picked up the neighbors dog barking, but it wasn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I often offer my parents to walk their dogs because they never do, but they always try to stop me because it's too hot outside.
>you put on a fur coat and walk around and see how you feel, anon!
It's only 82 degrees out now though. I suspect maybe that they're just bad owners, but maybe there is something to giving walks for dogs that I don't know. Ideally I've read that you should walk your dogs 1-3 times a day but they usually don't ever, but let them roam in a huge backyard. For reference my family... Comment too long.

What I do before I walk my dog in the summer is try to take her early mornings or late afternoons when the sidewalk isn't too hot. What you do is place the back of your hand on the sidewalk and attempt to hold it there for 15 seconds. If you have to pull your hand off before then, it's too hot for your dog to be walked outside. You wouldn't want their paws to be burnt.
As a general rule, if it is too hot for you, it is too hot for a dog. If you want a quick test, put your palm against the sidewalk. If it hurts you to have it there for more than a few seconds, it is too hot. But that is more of a concern in places this are 90+
Name a better animal. While you're thinking, let me tell you why the pot bellied pig is the greatest animal ever: >smart >friendly >love to play >can live inside or outside >fucking cute all throughout their lives
My dog won't stop shitting in the house. He is trained to go outside to pee, and only has an accident whenever we aren't home for more than 5 or 6 hours. But he let's us know when he wants to pee.
But the fucker is always going off and fucking pooping in hidden corners and under furniture when we aren't looking. We have to keep him in a cage almost constantly because of this. We let him out to play and go for walks, but when we are busy cleaning and cooking and doing things where we can't keep a constant eye on him he will ninja poop in the most... Comment too long.

Two strats: 1) Nuclear option of restart house breaking from page 1. 2) Note the times he is pooping and figure out his schedule. Do this for several days. Once you see a pattern, take him for walkies during these times and give him a high value treat when he goes outside.
Hello! Back in April I discovered that a man who lives near me had been breeding meat rabbits. Upon speaking to him, I learned that he has decided that taking care of rabbits is too much work, and that he has purposely let them go and stopped putting food and water out for them. After getting no help from animal control, I have decided to take on the care of these rabbits myself. I made this page to post their progress and to spread awareness about rabbit breeding and abuse. We currently have 22 bunnies, and he is STILL purchasing and releasing more. There are new rabbits being... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
the chickens are the only place you have grounds for animal abuse. stop worrying about the fucking bunnies, they're wild animals, and the city doesn't care about them. get a picture of the chickens in the cage and open that case.

Ok, I have a question that's been bugging me for a while.
If you get a bird (just one of the more regular ones like a cockatiel or budgie), and you have to travel for an emergency ir something, can you socialize a bird enough that it wouldn't stress during something like this? Like, could one socialize it like a dog, and in the event that you had to leave for a few days, leave the bird with a family member or friend?
Also, if this is possible, could it be done with a lovebird? I've heard that love birds... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Get a large envelope, a piece of cardboard, a rubberband, and a quarter.
Cut the cardboard to barely fit in the envelope.
Cut a small circle, a bit bigger than the quarter, in the center of the cardboard.
Stretch the rubber band over the cardboard so it crosses the hole. Place the quarter in the hole, between the rubber band. Twist the quarter in the rubber band a bunch of times. Carefully slide the whole thing into the envelope. Hold it tight to keep it from spinning. Put it under the chair with something fairly light on top of the quarter.

Kittens under 12 weeks should not have the run one your apartment. They should spend any unsupervised time in a kitten proofed room until they are old enough. Stick mom in the room with them half the day.
>>2185293 >on large dog doors set into glass windows with security panels? You don't set them in glass panels, rather you don't cut a hole in a piece of glass then install a dog door in that. If this is a residential home you probably don't have floor to ceiling windows. If by the off chance you do, it would probably be a storefront style system. You could deglaze the window and replace it with a panel with a hole for the dog door. Again I think your terminology is off OP. Take... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2185294 no, not really. it's relatively safe from what i've researched
one side effect is "sensation of having something in one or both eyes" which i may have experienced or there may have been something in my eye
i did 3 doses and the first one made me feel a bit magical like a microdose of hallucinogens or something-- that could have been placebo effect though, since the following doses had no effect whatsoever
My roommate started screaming about a spider in the kitchen and wanted me to kill it. This was a huge black spider. Thick legs, thick body, this fucker was ripped. This fucker works 12-hour days at a warehouse and then hits up the 24-hour gym. If I had stomped him, he probably would have survived and put me in a head lock. I left him right outside my door so he could protect us from the minorities that live in the apartment complex.
pic related is what he looks like but I don't think we have these around here
