Does anyone know of a way to keep spiders out of a room? I have a fairly intense fear of spiders (I literally can't play Skyrim like a normal person), and they like to set up shop behind my furniture, ESPECIALLY my bed.
I really don't like killing them, because I know they're just trying to go about their lives, but the fear kicks in and I have to hoover them or sit on edge for hours. I'd rather we just never had to run in to each other.
>>2182932 Ay yo I don't know if you'll come back to this thread but: Spiders like cool dark, often moist but not necessarily so, places that don't get disturbed much. If you clean every week you must not be vacuuming and doing laundry much, laundry is a rarely disturbed pile of hiding places. If you are though, go through and vacuum/pick up your closet, as that place is a common home for spiders, especially if it's messy at all. Other than that, apply these things to your house, and if that's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Hello /an/! So I have two adult males, super sweet and docile domesticated rescues 5, and 7y/o. I used to live with my friend who has two cats of her own, and I miss feeding a bunch of cats in the morning. And my two boys miss their two friends (who are a boy and girl) so today at the shelter, I was dropping three kittens off that I fostered to their new forever homes, and went home with a cat of my own, who is pictured! She spent a long time going home to home in this family because nobody wanted her after a "nasty divorce". I felt so bad for her, yelling in that... Comment too long.

I'm reading Time-Life's "Mysterious Creatures" book from their "Mysteries of the Unknown" series and they mention the whole coelacanth discovery thing. This is all fine and as the coelacanth is one of my favourite creatures I was glad to see it mentioned, but the next page displays a picture of what they want us to believe is a coelacanth with the caption >A villager from Comoro Island, off the coast of Mozambique, displays a coelacanth Along with a brief summary of the coelacanth's history. Now maybe I'm... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2185425 To be entirely honest I just sort posted the first fish I could think of that it reminded me of. I don't know enough about fish outside of niche things. Thank you for your help though, I know this is really inconsequential considering it's an error in a book from the 80's about paranormal things but it's still fun.
Why are dogs that are insanely different considered the same species, while strikingly similar animals, such as Masai Giraffe and Reticulated Giraffe (which can interbreed) considered different species?
Doggos can breed with wolves, dingos and foxes too
I bet that basal rot was caused by simple over watering. It was probably grown in 100% peat too because nurseries are lazy shits.
Do as >>2184864 says, find a guide on the internet for taking cactus cuttings and follow it. Then get some perlite, sand/horticultural grit and topsoil and make up a free draining cactus soil mix, and when your cuttings have callused over and begun to root, transplant into a container that can drain water freely and not sit in it's own...

>>2184869 yea draining problems most likely, I had no idea. I'd like to save it but I doubt it's worth it, I know jack shit about plants and I doubt I have any of the materials available The thing's probably cheaper than the stuff I'll need
lift by the scruff. this is how mother cats instinctual lift their young. when done on an adult cat it brings back nostalgia about being a kitten (seriously) and they let you lift them and cuddle them as long as you're holding their neck scruff
Hey /an/ inexperienced cat owner here, this stray cat pretty much moved in with me in the last week and like an idiot i've been feeding it that cat food that comes in small bags, it's not expensive but I wanted to find a more stable less expensive method, so I bought a regular can of cat food (contains 2-3 meals) and the first time I served it the cat just licked the gravy and left the meat.
I tried mashing it up so she can't avoid the meat and she ate just a little bit, like 10% of it.
What do I do? How do I get this little bitch to eat ? Pic is cat
How do I tell if my cat is play-fighting, or if he's legitimately mad and trying to hurt me? We were play-fighting just now, and we were going at it pretty good. Suddenly he stops, looks at me and screams, then attacks me again. This isn't really uncommon, he talks more than any cat I've ever known, but he was wagging his tail and wasn't purring. Was he mad at me?
I brutally annihilated this rabbit's sibling accidently while mowing the lawn at my mothers house, but this one was spared and ran off a little bit and doesn't seem injured. I put it in a box and covered it with some grass and wild herbs and he's sitting in there now. Does this rabbit have a chance of survival or is it doomed since I unearthed them from their nest and shocked the everloving fucking shit out of it? If I can save it, what should I be doing?
Should I pack fresh or dead grass around it as the "nest" material? Can rabbits have self-heal,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
That rabbit is big enough that it's no longer nursing, so just put it back and it'll eat what it needs to eat. 90 to 95% of baby/juvenile rabbits become food for things higher up the food chain. Around me that's foxes, coyotes, Cooper's hawks, fisher cats, and outdoor domestic cats.
Put it in some soil, water it, give it lots of light, only water it again when the soil is dry.
It's a socculent, so it thrives in dry conditions. Of course, you can be a little bit more generous with water the first couple of times to encourage root growth, but still wait for the soil to be dry.
Take off the lower 4 or 5 leaves and stick it in a hole you make with a finger in the soil.

Anyway a few months ago you all helped me vet a breeder and my wife and I have finally gotten our little Goldendoodle, Ladybird. She's been to the vet and so far everything is excellent. She's received her first 2 CPV shots but we have to wait another 10 days before she gets the third and last.
My question is this: just how close to the best do I need to play this until she gets that last vaccine? So far we havent really gone farther than 100 yards from my apartment for fear of her somehow contracting it.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2184457 OH yeah, not sure if it's relevant, but she's a couple days over 10 weeks now. I brought her home exactly a week ago, which I know some would disagree with, but like I said, my vet gave her a clean bill of health and she has a warm and cheery disposition.
Sort of surprised you were able to get a serious answer out of this board when looking for a goldendoodle.
Any good dog park will forbid a puppy that young from coming to one. Generally, most of the signs say 6 months or older. ESPECIALLY because of other diseases like lepto that are crazy there. Definitely do not take her to a dog park until fully vaccinated. It is a really bad idea for reasons beyond probably being against the rules.
Get a nice long leash and take pupper to a regular park that doesn't have a bunch of dogs around all the time. Unoccupied public baseball diamonds and soccer fields work great. The long leash is so puppee can run around but you can still gather her in close if needed.
Why is 90% of dog culture retarded >fucked up breeders pumping out litters of unhealthy dogs >dogs bred to live in pain (pug, bulldog) >people not properly training their pooches >trashy people owning pitbulls >people believing their dog can do no wrong >people owning stuff like pic related Where did it all go so wrong?
Our family is going to go pick up a 7&1/2 week old puppy tomorrow and I've been seeing some negative things written about the breeder online. Some of the complaints are nebulous or old and outdated(based on my visit).
When I went to the place it seemed clean but they did have alot of dogs(breeding 3 different types at once), they had probably 4 litters there. The owners are Mennonites with a ton of kids who help out with the dogs though.
Supposedly a vet checks up on the litters fairly often and the dogs are insured for 2 years. Not sure what to think.
A "breeder" next door keeps her female dog in a perpetual state of pregnancy - that's a red flag. They need a break in between. Most reputable breeders do 1 batch every 2 years and have multiple bitches to make up for the downtime.
Any breeder not insisting the dogs stay in their care until 8 weeks old. Some states require it by law, some don't. I know my state (TN) does not.
Any breeder that doesn't do the pre-registration for AKC. Your dog should come with a form for the AKC so you can register the dog. If you're not getting papers, then you're contributing to unnecessary dog breeding. No dogs should be bred unless they have a known lineage and that is verified by the AKC
Any breeder that does not do initial dewormings and provide you a medical record to bring to your vet.
Any breeder selling a dog for well below market value is a red flag, as well. Know the value of the dog. A Great Dane male should be over $1400, a Great Pyrenees male should be over $700. If you find a Dane for $700 or a Pyr for $300, walk away.
.... there's other things you get a feel for after you've gone through the process. You can tell if a breeder really cares for her dogs, or if it's just a job to her. For example, my last dog, I didn't get to pick it. She asked me what the dog was for, indoor/outdoor, working/family, other dogs/animals in the house, etc, and she picked one out based on their behaviors. And she nailed it perfectly. We got the perfect dog for our situation. She also wouldn't let any of her dogs go to a family that would be leaving the dog alone most of the day. You either had to have another dog, or someone had to be at home. For the first 6 months, at least. Anyway, point being, you could tell this woman knew her dogs, and knew how to make sure everyone was happy, and wouldn't settle for less. Big difference from someone just wanting to know how soon you can pay them and get the dog.
