First, I can not adopt him/her. It lives in a house with people, but I am not sure if they at least give something to eat because was so hungry and shaking from being cold. I meowed to him/her and give the food plus some nice/warm touches to its head and back. Seemed so happy. Post your good doings anons.

Call the authorities on the neglectful owners, then claim the kitten.

This. if you are in the US, you can steal the cat and take it to the shelter. It will get adopted quickly if it's a kitten. You could also call the authorities, because animal neglect is illegal

No, I am not in USA. I know that has a brother and/or sister because I saw them a few days ago in the night. I will try to keep and eye of then and put some food fron time to time

This.

Just take it.
If you're worried about being murdered you, if you know where it sleeps/hangs out a lot you could try putting down a cardboard box with some towels. It may help a little to keep it from freezing to death.

Or bring it inside during the night when you can and just let it back out in the morning.

Plz help I don't want any other dog to get hurt.
>>
I meant put him on a lead in the woods

>>2552887
Did your dog attack? Or was it just overly excited?
If the little dog wasn’t hurt I wouldn’t worry about it, that guy’s just an idiot.

my rooomate got a german shepard puppy and its driving me crazy because he stranded it with me for like a week. it screams in its kennel more than a puppy should, i think

she doesnt eat much, and whenever i let her out to use the bathroom or play in the yard she will not do anything but eat shit and look for shit to eat.

she doesnt have problems destroying the house or shitting everywhere or anything.

its really hard to get her to willingly get into her kennel, it can take like half an hour. sometimes i have to manhandle her to get in there because i have shit to do. I only let her out when she quiets down for a couple minutes if she's fussing. should be beating the shit out of it? is that proper dog training?

Fuck these threads, the retards who start them and fuck your roommate. I hope the puppy reverts to its natural GSD/pitbull/black instincts and eats a jew so it gets sentenced to lethal injection before it has to put up with any more predictably retarded ownership. Meanwhile you pussyfoot around objecting to this because it could inconvenience you, instead choosing to unload this bullshit online for us disconnected strangers to stress over.

faggot.
>>
>>2551795
OP again
he picked the dog up by its collar and i wouldn't consider it beating but he did spank the shit out of it

literally because he was angry since it would run to me when it was angry

ironically he's a white kid and i'm a mullato, but apparently i'm not the nigger.

i want to take the dog and kick him out

>Meanwhile you pussyfoot around objecting to this because it could inconvenience you, instead choosing to unload this bullshit online for us disconnected strangers to stress over
i've considered taking it into the woods and shooting it so it won't cause problems
it shat in the house today. my "roommate" is getting kicked to the curb and if he lets me i'm taking the GSD If it's legally mine and i can get dog insurance or whatever i will take her, she will be abandoned and she doesn't deserve that.

My roommmate abused her in front of me and he's fucking out, this bitch had the audicity to instruct me in dog care while he beats his dog. he's gone, and if he takes his dog i hope he gets arrested, because that thing barks and growls and will probably bite

Fuck, I wrote down "what percentage of animals are land or sea" on google and a whole lot of newsites popped up saying that 80% of animals were land, 15% sea, and 5% freshwater
They didn't mention that it was only macro
Bloody fake news
I should be more vigilant and check scientific sources before spouting off what a 1 second google search tells me

Do you know of any scientific studies about percentage of animals in sea, freshwater, and on land that include microscopic animals as well?
>>
>>2552153
>that include microscopic animals as well?
nothing concrete, most microanimals in all three environments haven't been discovered or named yet.

So my cat has these red bumps on the back of his neck, and when i first noticed them i thought it was just cat litter in his hair, but now tge lumps are growing and getting more red, along with him losing hair. Does anyone know what these are and how to treat it if possible? Trying our best to steer away from vets unless really necessary, as money is currently tight.

I will also add two other things.

Don't immediately switch 100%.
Mix the new food with the old food and gradually wean him into the new food. Sometimes switching brands too fast can cause vomiting and shitting everywhere as it's a shock to their system. I'd especially be careful with cats with that.

Since he is a male cat, you will also want to feed him wet food. I personally feed my male cat mostly wet food, some dry.
This is because male cats are horrifically fucking prone to UTIs, renal failure and kidney problems in general when fed a dry food only diet.

And THAT'S because cats are garbage at keeping themselves hydrated. They don't have a strong thirst drive like and as much as most normal earth animals, so before they are thirsty enough to drink they are already dehydrated. I personally have only seen kidney failure/UTIs in male cats, and they were fed only dry. UTIs are not only horrific agony but sadly I have also known some friend's male cats be euthanized/die due to kidney problems associated with their diet. What's worse is that vets are shit about it too and will try to shill you a shit brand like Science Diet.

It's better to shell out a little more than deal with the bills and emotions of kidney failure later, especially when it's so common and preventable.

Thank you all so much for the advice. We got two new bowls and this food. I think for now we will leave the food in its original bag since it has a zip loc styled seal. Also we will slowly mix this into his food, but one last question: should we also be feeding the female this food? Like i said we havent had any problems with her so im kind of worried that changing her diet might hurt her now.

I seriously appreciate all of the replies and all of your support and timeliness.
Im hoping for the best for these kittens. Sorry if i seemed ignorant at some points, just really worried for his health

>>2552268
If anything this food will be better for her anon.

Anyone try the grain free food at Stater Brothers? It says grain free and first ingredient is actual salmon. But it’s only like $5 so I’m a little worried? I looked it up on one of the websites you guys post for pet food and it had a 3/4 I believe. Review said it was good for a dry kibble.

Student t-distribution is essentially the same as a normal distribution with heavier tails. You use a t-test when you don't know the variance of your population.

If you are comparing difference in mean growth between two groups - student t-test

Most likely a Weimaraner or a white Labrador of some sort. It'll probably grow a lot more than what it is right now. Judging from it being that big by 4 months, it's probably going to grow up to be a pretty big dog.
