So, these assholes

I don't know which one of them (I suspect 13yo european one), finds every niche in the house we use for storage, and shits there, instead of litter box.

Did anyone had this problem? How to show cat that I don't want to see his shit outside designated area?
Do you have more than one litter box?
If not, then the general rule of thumb is a litter box per cat, plus one
Eh, so two litter boxes more, I guess
My older cat doesn't like using litter box that has been used by other cat. Idk if that is your issue though

my stupid puppy doesnt know when to bark. we have 5 other dogs, and they all bark when it makes sense like when they see someone come on our property but the puppy just barks at any little thing, not caring whether or not the other dogs join in.

She also barks for much longer than the other dogs, when they've all stopped barking she just keeps yapping away its horrible. she's a lovely dog but she really needs to stop this.

what do
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I have a little Chihuahua Shi Tzu and she used to bark ALL THE TIME. My neighbors are out constantly doing stuff and she would always start yapping anytime she heard a noise outside. Usually a light pop on the butt would help or redirecting her helped. Now she only barks when she thinks something is on our property.
Sounds like a great candidate for the put down list.

Incorrect, I'm 99% sure that is Arcturus baffini

Ask at your feed and farm supply store. Wherever you buy the grain, just ask for predator repellent.

It's going to take a while, but just spend more time around them. Don't try to touch them, just be around. Give the other birds bits of cracked corn every now and again. It might get the new ones to get curious about you instead of fearful.

Those are some aesthetic girls, anon. I love how chickens tend to be photogenic, looking at the camera, posing, etc.

It happens, and as long as you get your eggs every day it has nothing to do with fertilization despite what some will tell you. Young chickens tend to lay more abnormal eggs, like double yolks and blood spots, and some chickens will lay such eggs through their lives. Spots can also happen if a bird is injured while the egg is developing in the oviduct.
Blood spotted eggs are perfectly safe to eat. If the spot is unappetizing then you can just scoop it out.
>Ask at your feed and farm supply store. Wherever you buy the grain, just ask for predator repellent.

We don't have that here. I can't find it anywhere domestically, that's why I asked. I guess I have to order trough Amazon.
Peeing around the yard yourself helps as well.
My birds are waiting for spring and summer, I've got 12, 1 week old, additions brooding currently.

There is nothing wrong with letting your dog fuck you. It's when the animal itself is penetrated and obviously uncomfortable that it becomes wrong and should be outlawed.

We're talking about the obese country making false flag for the last 40 years and responsible for the rise of modern feminism and sjw, right?
So of course I'm mad about it. Burgers need to be killed, quickly.
So you're going to tell me they couldn't have at the least thrown it into a 20x20 dirt zoo enclosure, with some fake wildlife and just set it up as a zoo attraction even within state? It honestly just sounds like bullshit excuses that they are willing to do for any other animal who got into a similar situation without the media stir crazy puppy murder. Like honestly this sounds like the bureaucratic bullshit that warrants their department's existence and their budget/spending they need but they didn't want to deal with the fall out or harassment of insane dogfags while they try to do the right thing and relocate the turtle so they just kill it instead.
Between the stress and being in a totally different environment there is about a 100% chance of the turtle dying while they spent tax payer dollars to relocate a common animal to it's death

This is the first time when giant pouched rats being bred in Russia!
Why im creating this thread - if you are the "rat-person", you probably know how HORRIBLE it is that rats live only 2-3 years and can have cancer.

While Giant pouched rats:
2) they are still rats cute urururururuuru kawaiii :3:
3) they are super intellectual animals - they even being used as miners in Africa!

holy shit i can't wait them getting more popular here so i can finally have A GIANT PET RAT THAT LIVES FOR 9 YEARS!

They aren't much like our domesticated rats in terms of behavior. Before theybwwrw banned here (they aren't banned anymore) I remember a few owners who had gotten some serious bites due to hormonal ones and when they're angry you leave them the fuck alone.
if you want a giant rat why not get a chihuahua?

Is it OK to put a dog down if, after years of neglect, its gone wild and can't be around people without getting aggressive? my brothers dog creates so much stress in the house, and its obviously in some kind of psychological pain. its completely isolated in the back yard and has been for years
9 replies omitted. Click here to view.

It's a dog. Just put it down. Why even take the risk? Just let the poor thing be out of its misery.

I wouldn't assume anything. Even if a person directly says "yeah I don't care," it doesn't mean they'll react that way when you tell them you euthanized "their" animal.
So you're saying that you should be allowed to receive a lethal injection because you aren't social enough?
>being anti-social
>people are actually this self-centered
Then they should learn to actually communicate and adhere to some vague thread of insight before they just simply barf out a string of words.

He doesn't believe T-Rex is a scavenger anymore.

In contrary, his theory on dinosaur species being less than 1/3 of what we know today might be interesting.
and that theory is also being proven to be bullshit too
Just the usual bot-posting trying to muck up the board with useless threads, but without getting so off topic they get deleted. I'm not sure they realize what website they are on.
