I don't think there are any animal charities that consider Jews animals yet so I don't think the second part of your sentence was necessary.

I've got a fairly healthy population of eastern quolls on my property, there was about 12-15 or so when I first moved in and now there's probably at a guestimate around 30-40 or so.
Basically went all final solution on the cats, wild dogs and foxes a few years ago, helped out the neighbours get rid of any ferals as well and its been good ever since

Bonsai always fascinated me, but I found the idea too intimidating. Early this year someone pointed out that peppers are great for noobs, since they grow large enough to look like a bonsai in 1 season, and they are super tough plants, so I started with that. This is one of the results so far.

2 weeks ago I visited my parents, and my dad had just dug up a dead stump, and with it 2 taxus plants. I considered this a sign, and took em home, if they survive I got me some nice pre-bonsai(?) to practice on.

My mom also pointed out some pine seedlings that were growing in their garden, she promised me she'll try to keep them safe for me, until they are a bit larger.
And when ordering some basics like wire & cutters, I couldn't resist this one, only was €20 and one of my favorite type of trees (Larch).

@anon this noob is looking forward to your guide, many thanks!

@other noobs, check out Nigel Saunders on yt, I really enjoy his vids.

anyone get a pound animal? want to get a kitten from my pound anyone have any experience with pound animals and the process of getting them?
>>
>>2550744
Got all of my dogs and cats from the same kill shelter. They essentially check that you don't have cruelty to animals charges and hand you the leash.
That being said, you have to be extremely careful which pets you pick up from there. Sure, some could be housebroken and trained right out the gate, but there are some downright feral animals that make it into the shelter. I generally go for older animals, because a) they're more likely to be former housepets that were simply abandoned, and b) they'll most likely be killed if they don't get adopted
With dogs, you can generally tell if they're salvageable by how they act in their cages. Cats, however, are wily as fuck; they know that if they don't get adopted, their ass is grass, so they'll make sure to cuddle up to you at all times.
Once adopted an old tabby from the shelter, I swear you could see the halo above her head. But as soon as we got to the house, she fucked my shit up good, and continued to do so for the next 4 years.
Honestly, if you want a kitten, you're better off at a pet store. Shelter pups and kittens have a higher chance of being traumatized by their experience, in my experience.
>>
Most shelters these days have "cattery rooms", where cats are sorted by age. See pic related.

I'd avoid the ones that still have cats in tiny cages. Cat's don't really cope well in that environment and it makes it very hard to tell what kind of personality it has. It can leave a psychological impact on kittens (and puppies for that matter).

Shelters are usually pretty easy to adopt from, at least compared to no-kill rescues who can afford to be more selective about owners. My local shelter you only need to prove you're over 18 and get written consent from your landlord if you rent.

Do you own a great dane? What the fuck.
You're dog is at LEAST an adolescent, if not a full adult dog right now, the same way an 18 year old is an adult.

Anyhow, if you get a flirt pole and run at least once a day, you can wear out any dog. I worked my husky to exhaustion all fall.

there are shelters that would allow this? the two shelters I've volunteered at both keep records of everything and there's no way they would allow you to adopt an animal after giving one to them.

Ignoring things like pesky logic of course.

For new, a yellowfin tuna. They're big, they're swimmy, they're pretty , and unlike my dive buddy they don't talk about literally nothing for hours on end. Id probably just live in the tank with it and feed it nuggets and shoot up a fish market
