Guys, I think I managed to accidentally kill my betta. So the poor bastard was originally a zoology lab test subject. We used him to study his reaction to various stressors (look, if you stick a mirror next to him, he gets really pissed!), and at the end of the lab the TA asked if anyone wanted to take one of them home. So I took him, fed him when I got home, then the next day got a tank and stuff and prepared it for him. Problem is, I've never owned a betta before, so I took him straight from the little cup he was in straight to the warm water. It's been a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2002227 I had conditioned and warmed up the water, but I didn't warm his cup water up, so I think the shock of the temperature change finally did him in. I hadn't figure on him lasting terribly long anyway.
>>2002228 depends how warm the water was I suppose. They can handle small temperature changes, and the water shouldn't feel warm to your hand. The right temp feels neutral or a bit cold to most people.
but you might as well give it another try since you got him a tank and whatnot. They don't cost much, and they can live a few years usually.
Can anyone here explain why bugs sit completly still sometimes? Because there's a spider just chilling on my curtains not doing anything or moving I went and made some coffee and they're still just sitting there I've seen moths do it to ???
That seems pretty depressingly short. They're social animals. Have you considered working with a trainer on the carpet issue? Or crate training him out of it? Or is there a non carpeted space? Or maybe you can do several play sessions?
What kind of outdoor enclosure does he have? If it is like a spacious yard or run that you can put enrichment item in then that might not be so bad. But if it's just chained up, to me that's borderline cruel.
He pissed in the crate? Take him to the vey and have the vet take a look because that sounds like it could be some kind of bladder infection/uti which aren't uncommon in puppies. Typically any dog will do anything they can to avoid eliminating where they sleep.
If not that, since he is so young I'm pretty sure some training might really help. Or if you're unwilling to do that you should find him a new home. But I really don't think the idea of keeping him outside all the time will make... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This is my new puppy: Zaku. He is 9 weeks old and he begs to sleep with me every night. Let me describe the situation a little more: I have wooden floor in my bedroom, so until Zaku is fully potty trained he can't access my room. Right now I'm sleeping in the living room, on the sofa, because I want to keep an eye on him, in order to prevent potty accidents. He bags to sleep with me every night, and right now I'm ok with that, because the sofa is ok. The problem is that in the future I don't want him to sleep in my bed, and I don't want to get...

My cat has really crumbly poo. It's very light coloured, like sand, and is very crumbly. He doesn't always go like this, but when he does, it ends up outside of the litter box. (I think he has a hard time pushing it all out.) I found some outside the litter box again this morning, but in a rush to get to work didn't take a photo. This happens once every few months.
I've asked at different vets and they just say to put pumpkin in his food. I do that, I also have tried psyllium husks, and a yogurt treat for dogs and putting that in there. He eats raw... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So my cat (9 weeks) isn't even pretending to understand the concept of a litter box. I've tried pretty much everything. From positive reinforcement to stern discipline, and she's just not getting it. Is there any guaranteed way to get your cat/kitten to use it or am I just going to have to get rid of her?
>>2001854 Just catch her whenever she pees/poos and quickly carry her to the litter boxwhile she's going. Or when she starts squatting. Did this with both of my cat's kittens (not a byb, just accidental) and my own cat. Worked like a charm.
I had a cat that was like this and nothing worked until a got an old dog crate and I set up a litter box in there and it was a lot like the cages they'd be in a shelter, small bed, food, water, and a litter box nothing else. She would have to have shit on her bed or practically on her food dish in order to avoid shitting in the litter box and cats are disinclined to do that so it worked pretty well. She shit on her bed once but I just put that shit in the litter and buried it myself and she figured it out after that. I would just keep her in there while I was gone and then... Comment too long.

Post coyote pics here. Bonus points for interesting coat colors.
(Pics of pelts/taxidermy acceptable, but pics of live animals preferred.)
Despite their poor reputation, I'm rather fond of coyotes and enjoy hearing them yip/howl at night, and the occasional fleeting sighting of them is awesome. We have a lot of coyotes in my area but they're very elusive and shy so it's a real treat to get to see one.
