My faggot cat only eats shit kibble. I have spent lots of money trying to get her healthy, high-end cat food for senior cats and she won't touch it. If I give her wet food she eats the gravy and leaves the rest. She won't even eat actual meat. She likes cheese and shit kibble filled with grains which I know cats don't need.

What the fuck why

Literally the only thing that is worst about rodents is that they have shorter lifespans. Rodents are smarter, cleaner, more affectionate, and all around better pets.
She won't starve. If it starves itself let it; it apparently didn't want to live anyway. If it is hungry it will eat.
she knows what she likes, let her keep eating it. how would you like it if someone changed your diet to indian food for the rest of your life?
>What the fuck why
I would love that. Indian cuisine is my favorite.

Cut it in half and count the rings.
Ok well I didn't wanna cut the whole dog in half because that would obviously kill him but I tried the front right leg and it looks like there's 2 or 3 rings? Can anyone verify this? Pics coming soon, gotta get the lil booger still first
I would say probably about 2-4. Younger dog.

You still haven't accepted responsibility faggot.
They meant if you stopped for a cat without warning, the person behind you should have enough space to stop in time without hitting you, if they don't they are bad driving tailgaters.
Keep up the good work

Is this a puppy tooth? It got loose while I was playing tug of war with my pup. She's about 5 months or alittle older now and I've heard that most of her front teeth (incisors) should be adult by now.

It's obviously tender for her since she doesn't want to bite/chew on her toys anymore.
it's not unusual to still have a few puppy teeth at 5 months

around here, that's about $23 to remove at the vet

I wouldn't be hard to just wait for it or do it myself, I just don't wanna pull out a adult tooth that is still growing in.

again, a vet will help you figure that out

but do whatever. dye your dog pink and superglue socks to its feet

I think chow chows look beautiful and I would like to have one, but I keep coming across horror stories about them. Have you ever had one? Talk to me about chows.
27 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I've got a chow mix. He's really just a big, lovable doof. Never really gets aggressive, though you can push him and he'll snap. That line is pretty out there, though. He'll happily sit and let the neighborhood kids come up and pet him for hours. All that being said, he's mixed with a Great Pyrenees so most of the attitude probably comes from that side.
>She was a magnet for kids and women, they would get close, I would warn them, they would laugh, the hand would creep closer, oh don't worry I'm good with animals, the low growl and then she would lunge, sorry, but I warned you

Based cloud.
The Chow unfriendly disposition almost never gets passed onto mutt offspring in my experience - volunteered at a shelter one summer that had a whole bunch of chow mixes - mostly with german sheperds and goldens and none of them had that infamous chow disposition and were pretty much happy friendly dogs.

So I just got a dog from my neighbor, really cool pup thats about 2 years old. I knew it since it was little and it had always been brown.

About a week ago my neighbor informed me he would be moving out of state and couldn't take the dog with him. Naturally I took him as my own since he was always a joy when I saw him.

For some reason his brown fur turned grey except for his paws and face starting this year. My neighbor blamed this on him eating too little but he was never able to get a real reason why.

Does anyone know why his fur would make such a dramatic change?

Pic related: shitty camera quality courtesy of my phone.
just like with humans, some dog's hair changes color as they age. diet could also be a factor, if they're not getting enough nutrients. have you talked to a vet about this?
Does it have Lhasa apso in it by any chance? My grandmother has one and when it was a puppy it was dark brown, like an ewok. As she got older, but rather quickly her fur turned a creamy white color, the same coloration her parents have. Completely different looking dog by the time she was 2 years old. Kind of how kids hair goes from blonde to darker brown as they age I figured. Might be normal for that dog, they don't always stay the same color. My grandmas dog looks completely different color wise than she did as a puppy.

Forgotten by nature and God, the olm swims by in putrid water, confined to eternal darkness.

With all backs turned on it, the olm need not to rush to die. It can live up to a 100 years, or maybe more, if it so desires.

What ever force, nature or divine, formed the elegance and powerful beauty of a marlin, the fast, powerful tuna, or the terrifying yet captivating shapes of a blue shark, had no hand in designing this creature called the moon fish.
Helplessly floating in the vast blue ocean, as sharks take bites from it's strangely shaped flesh, in a motion that barely qualifies as swimming, the moon fish is here to stay, re-creating itself, generation after generation, unchanging.

The Plant General - Amorphophallus edition
>" うわー、あなたはとてもアジア男性よりもはるかに長大です!"

Welcome to /plant/, the magical green place on this blue board. ITT: We shill my Nepenthes collection, uncover plont's birth certificate and continue to ogle sexy pots full of Dionaea.

/Plant/ is for the discussion of plants (obviously). Horticulturists, hobbyists and botanists welcome! Questions about plants? Want to show off your two inch dick-I mean plant? Maybe you want to start growing something new and exciting? Well come on over to /plant/!

Introducing a new basic caresheet with every thread: easy Amorphophallus species
>first and foremost, these are seasonal plants with tuberous dormancy periods over autumn(fall)/winter
>big deep pot for stability and plenty of room below the surface for the tuber
>loose, aerated, well-draining soil (keep moist at all times during growth)
>rich organic content and frequent high-phosphate fertilising, depending on species (A. titanum and tropical species might need more trace elements)
>partially-shaded light is best, full sun if you're in the UK or other low-light Sharia zones
>20-25°c works for most species during growing season, increase it for the harder tropical stuff
>dormancy - once the leaf wilts and begins to die, stop watering. Leave the soil to dry, then carefully dig up the tubers. Depending on the species, store for 3-7 months in a sealed ziplock bag full of their old dry soil (cooler temps of around 15°c are ideal) until it's time for the cycle to begin again

Has anybody grown this cultivar? Seems to be pretty stronk despite its deformity
Why is this fruit particularly useless?
Some figs do well with relatively little light, such as F. benjamina or F. elastica (but not the very common F. carica)
Also lots in the ivy family, such as, well, ivy, Fatsia and Schefflera
Another one that's been doing well for >10 years in a very shady, North-East facing room a couple metres away from the windows is Chlorophytum comosum
What will NOT look nice but is often done in shady indoor places are Yucca and Dracaena specia, so many poor things I've seen totally leggy and spindly, exhausted and hungering for light in dark corners of office rooms...
Thanks for the info I'll definitely looking into those

What does /herp/ think of repti-carpet?

I've seen it quite a bit, but have never heard of it actually being used for anything.
it's used as substrate. What else do you expect to see it used for?

The first time I ever saw a "freshwater" moray eel, I could swear it was an Echidna nebulosa because I clearly remember thinking "How the hell are they keeping E. nebulosa in freshwater?", but now I can't find anything about them being kept in freshwater and the ones I see are clearly different species. Could I be confusing memories?
no true freshwater morays except Gymnothorax polyuranodon (most likely)

every other "freshwater" species needs brackish or full on marine

What he said, also Gymnothorax tile. I guess the snowflake sort of resembles the fw ones, but that's a lot of squinting to see the resemblance
Well I know that part. But I could swear I saw at two different stores E. nebulosa kept in freshwater and that that was the species I first saw kept in this way. That's why I posted this, because I'm trying to figure out why I remember this when I can't find any evidence for it. I mean it's a very specific memory about thinking this is insane that you can keep E. nebulosa in freshwater.
That or Echidna Rhodochilus. I've had them in brackish water. Easy to look after.

Only other 'eel' I've had in freshwater is a Tulip Eel.
