Cats are coming into my garden, slaughtering bird and rodents.

I want to stop this without killing them if I can. How to permanently stop cats from coming?
>>
There's only one permanent solution

I'm still feeding the feral cat that lives under my shed.

You mad?

Hows that selective? You put it in cat food, right? Lots of things eat cat food.

Kek. That was me who brought up Tylenol.

what you name it

>>2754895
Most animals tolerate acetaminophen much better than cats. However, if anon is just grinding up a shitload of Tylenol into cat food, he's probably killing all sorts of things.

My cat died today. And this hurts so much I just want to die as well. I'm crying most of the time and when I'm not, I just feel empty or whatever this is. She was pretty much the only thing I still cared about in my useless life and now she's gone forever.
Sorry for creating a thread just for this but I needed to put it out there in some way.

A cat is not a sentient self aware being. It cannot give or receive love. A parrot may be able to sort of approach a level of emotional feeling and understanding but still not to a human level.

Grow up.

>>2752338
My deepest condolences anon. She’s in a better place now. Please take care of yourself.

>>2754826
You clearly haven't ready any theological treatise on the properties of materialism and love, nothing relating to Greek Platonism either. Perhaps your desire to waste time and tell people to grow up arises out of a loneliness and spite at seeing the difference of experience rise from others.

My kitten finally pooped after 4 days!
I never thought I'd be happy to wash towels and clean poop off the floor. She's asleep now. Giving her some milk in 2 hours.

Thanks guys, you kept me so much less anxious.

Whenever I say i want to work with animals, people always make fun of me and assume i want to work with dogs or pandas or some shit when i really just want to do shit with fish. Might as well become a zookeeper at my local public aquarium.

>>2754274
I wanted to become a zookeeper but I figured there were too few of those jobs and too many people who want them so I chose to study something with safer career options.
I still imagine zookeeper as being the top most comfy and enjoyable job though.

I just don't get what makes a person so bothered about centipedes that they would make multiple threads about other people's choice of pets. Why the anger, why bother? I don't get why someone would keep centipedes either though.

The fish store warned me it was a balloon when I got mine very young, but I didn't care (or know what that meant) at the time. It hasn't grown as much as the regular german blue I got the same day, but he's got a good personality and is feisty. Hopefully mine'll be OK.

I've never had a dwarf gourami live longer than 6 months. Granted, I've never bought one from a good place, but they die so fucking suddenly when my parameters are mint. I've got one left and put him in a too-fresh new tank. I'm surprised he hasn't died yet, I kind of put him in there expecting it.
