It's a torcaza, you retard
Keep safe and warm while it dries out, then when the weather gets better, leave it someplace open (or a room with an open window) so it can get out flying.
If it panics and flies around your house, don't panic and grab it gently.

no, really in general wasps are OK, once you get used to handling them then you realize how much personality they have and what their house rules are. Hell of a lot safer than honeybees if you ask me

Imagine that multiplied by the hundreds. That's the average Galah experience here. That said outside being noisy cunts, which they are, they don't get a bad wrap.

I like the way lioness look. They look like a perfect mix between small and big cats. Puma heads are too short and flat to me so it looks weird on their bodies.

Don't use shampoo unless it's specific for cats. Dish soap works as well.

You could seriously injure or kill your cat using the wrong product

Is bathing a cat only necessary under very particular circumstances or is it a good idea to do so regularly?

I recently learned how to taxidermy a mouse. I enjoy it and would definitely be interested in picking it up as a hobby, but I don't want to kill mice and rats just to play with their corpses.

Is there a way for me to get ahold of dead mice and rats in good condition? I considered buying them from the East Bay Vivarium, but I decided that I would basically be paying someone else to kill the mice and rats for me. Is there an ethical way to buy them? Maybe from a lab? Do reptile stores occasionally throw out their old, frozen mice?
>>
>>2507816
Just keep some as pets and when they die from natural causes then you can stuff them knowing they had a good life
>>
>>2507819
Interesting idea, good job thinking outside of the box
>>
>>2507821
I don't know if I'd able to stuff a pet, and I would like to get started ASAP, but this seems like a pretty good idea. Thanks
>>
>>2507816
I don't know if reptile stores ever throw out frozen mice, but they aren't super expensive, nor are frozen rats. Most pre-killed feeders are killed with CO2, which is considered humane.
>>
>>2507819
The problem with that is that rodents usually die from problems associated with age rather than just 'old age'. With rats at least, you would have more emaciated and tumor filled rat corpses which would make mounting them not only more difficult but they would still look like shit.

I have done it myself but even with rats that dont have tumors, their skin and fur feels weaker so its harder to work with lots of slipping whether its been tanned or salted.

Now the problem with buying from a reptile supply place is that your choices are basically only albinos and maybe agouti hooded rats. You can TRY to get in contact with a rat breeder that culls but most dont. Its how I got some siamese and merle rat corpses but to be fair I dont think she was a good 'pet' rat breeder so I felt kinda bad I was buying them off her.

Pic semi-related, looked like her

My dog recently past away, i don't know how she died but i do believe it has something to due with her heart. Can anyone tell me if she suffered when she died, this is what's been bothering me the most
>>
How can anyone possibly know that, you need to provide more details

Reminds me when I flat out asked my dog how he wanted it and he said "rough".
>>
>>2507833

My dog was roughly 14 years old, she hadn't had any rabies shot for a while until last month. She had gotten lost for a day but we found her the next day at a shelter. The vet gave her a rabies shot and because of that she had a 1 seizure a day for two days. She had them around the same time, around 9-10 pm. She had never had any seizures even when she'd get her rabies shot before. The day before she died, nothing seemed wrong with her, she was acting how she would normally act any other day.
