Why the fuck does my cat meow at me to go to sleep? Every night around midnight she run into my room and meow incessantly no matter what I'm doing. She won't stop until I climb into my sheets and allow her to curl up on my left shoulder. Cuddling is fun and all, I guess, but why do cats do this? Or is this even a common cat thing?

Cats are weird. Just lock your room.

I'm a poor college student who wants a small companion pet. Thinking about getting a hamster.

What breed would you recommend? Or is it even worth it getting a hamster?
23 replies and 4 images submitted. Click here to view.
Depends on what you want in that small companion. Hamsters are generally more 'look, no touch' pets-can be pretty ornery. Rats are usually better because they enjoy seeing their owners and spending time with them if you get a pair from a good breeder that handraised them. Mice are also pretty chill with a bit of patience, and easy to take care of as well. Can be held and such, but don't get quite as excited or happy as rats. More just want to wonder around a bit and aren't so content to chill on your shoulder.
I've definitely thought about rats since they're so intelligent. I just don't have the space for a large enough habitat for two of them, and would feel guilty keeping only one since they're so social. The hamster I had as a little kid was always pretty friendly. But then again, I spent tons of time taming and playing with it.
Well if you think you can make a hamster friendly, go for it. But really, rats don't need a big cage. A regular bird cage would work for two if you are going to take them out for a few hours when you get home.

Or mice are good too.

Reptile owners, do you ever kiss your pet? Not full on French kissing, mind you, more like little pecks on the head. What is your limit?

Off topic but that thing looks wicked to hold, are the spines actually sharp?

Not OP, but beardies are actually quite soft. Think fingernail hardness.

I'm thinking of getting a pet rat, what are some tips on owning one, and what should I name it, shitpost or cannabis?

get two

Solves most of your problems
You really need to get two or more. Rats are so social, keeping them on their own is cruel. Two rats will be much much happier and owning two rats really isn't much more expensive.
Not OP but kinda interested as well. Is there a certain breed that is better for handled and loved on?

also, depening on your locality, the bear danger is very very real. they'll travel like 30miles for you bees and they don't fuck around once they locte it.
I live in Utah, and there are a lot of local bee keepers around. There are bears, but they are all way up in the mountains. they never make it as far into the valley as my home.
-Do you live in the suburbs or rurally ? - sometimes local government laws and public opinion can get prevent you.

-If you are starting off make sure to get at least too hives, reason being that it allows you to compare them and be better able to spot differences and problems.

-Bees aren't as handsfree as you might think, you do need to keep tabs and check on them, especially in America where disease and parasites are such a big problem.

The Spring Peepers were intense this year (as always). My recording rig is really expensive but made up of many components, so I spent a little money at a time to build it up. This recording was done when I didn't have my amazing preamps yet and I hadn't built the Jecklin disk either - SO the quality isn't as beautiful as the first post. Shame too, because the peepers are a pretty impressive wall of noise. Next spring I'll get'm properly.

Yep. I do animal photog; both captive (pets and zoo) and some wildlife when i get the opportunity. Just hobby i picked up to get myself out of the house on weekends.

My cat opens and closes a door, and he brought a rabbit inside the house and stored it in the cupboard for later. I only found this out today when he was pawing in a cupboard. And a baby rabbit ran out of the cupboard. So I rescued it from the cat and I've been getting it to drink water, I've also put antiseptic cream on an old scarred wound where the cat grabbed it.

So pet rabbit advice, is what I'm after.

How many hours of sunlight do rabbits need per day, and how large of an enclosure, at the moment I have the rabbit in a cardboard box with some...

Wild rabbits do not make good pets. They do not tame well and most die from captivity stress.

Let's talk about our century's greatest problem within the eco-minded community. It's clear to everyone at this point, that a militant, zealous minority is hijacking our movement, turning intelligent discussions about the environment and eco-friendly solutions, into troll infested nonsense. They are what SJW-s are to liberalism. They're the dark greens. Yes, that is a jab at their intelligence. The frightening thing is, there are more and more of them each day. Here's a list that'll help you recognize them:

you mean majority.

all eco-people are nutjobs because caring for the environment is essentially anthropomorphism.
I disagree. Above a certain level of intelligence, it's just logical to be environmentally conscious, because our survival and well being depends on it.

All right my fellow human beings.
I am looking for a low maintenance pet. Can be whatever (Fish, bird, reptile, whatever aside from insects I fucking hate them). Must be cheap or easily available in the wild (I live in Italy).

Back home there's a small lake where cute little water snails live, I'd usually furnish a small acquarium for them and just watch them reproduce and eat algae but I am away from home now.

Thank you.

Betta fish.
What if I went out with a jar, filled it with random soil, made a few small holes on the top of it, dropped a bit of water in there while providing sunlight and waited what happens?
You might get springtails, or nematodes, or some neat fungus. Maybe some cute babby weeds will grow if you are lucky.

There are some pretty garden snails in Italy, they make nice pets. Good for your skin.

Otherwise, I'm not really sure what is easy to find this time of year.
