Is it possible to selectively breed an animal that looks like this?

Why?

For loyal humanoid companions who can help with tasks that require the dexterity of apes, e.g. carrying wood. Also, possibly for hunting purposes.

Birman and maine coon are my dream cats. I can't justify buying one though when stray kittens are so easily available. At least purebred dogs vary a lot in looks and behaviour so there are benefits of getting a purebred over a mutt. Cats are just cats. I've met ragdoll cats that were hyperactive as fuck and siamese that were shy and quiet. And since moggies can come in any colour there isn't really a reason to get a purebred other than bragging rights.

My boyfriend and I want to move out from our parent's place and rent an apartment in Germany, but we're not sure how much the landlords like/dislike animals in general.
We have 2 rats, 2 guinea pigs, a dwarf bunny and a cat. We keep their places very clean so there's no smell and they're not noisy at all.
What do you guys think, would it be possible to find a place with this many animals?

Not sure if this is the right board, so sorry if I'm in the wrong place.

Thanks in advance!

I grew up on a farm. There was a point we had five cats, seven dogs, four horses, two goats, a myriad of chickens, and a fish tank.

I consider two dogs + 1-2 small animal the limit for average suburban/city life now. 2-3 dogs + 2 cats is pushing it but acceptable for a large family with a large house.

They simply don't get enough care otherwise, and money is a concern with most people.
>>
>>2754178
There is a lot more to care than just feeding it and cleaning up after it's waste.
Keeping a cage clean is not even the bare minimum.
Much more care needs to be given to even small animals like rats.

Discuss anything aquarium related here, including inhabitants, decor and issues.
Search engines are your friend.
Feel free to ask questions but know that there are a lot of resources out there that could answer your question a lot faster and accurately than /an/.
Make sure to include these things in your post before asking because we can't help you if we don't have the full picture:

-Tank size (include dimensions, not just volume)
-Parameters (ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, pH, GH, KH)
-Any and all inhabitants + how long you've had them
-Pictures are always helpful

what's a good "noob fish" for a first timer?

I also live in a pretty damn hot place but I have a room where I keep the a/c on all day at 25c. Would that be a fine place for an aquarium?
>>
>>2756154
25C is 77F, fine temperature for tropical fish. Good first time fish would be a school of neon tetras or maybe some guppies or platies.

Sometimes even taking a normal dose of Benadryl will make me hallucinate slightly. It gives me hypnagogic hallucinations. I see things when I'm on the verge of falling asleep. Namely, spiders. All of the spiders.

In my experience, it's carnivore and omnivore feces that sell the worst, whereas herbivores basically crap lawn clippings that don't even smell in a few hours.

I can't speak of how well they do as meat chickens since I only keep mine as pets, but they're pretty beefy so they're probably fine for that.

Because it's really cute looking. No practical reason why they were bred to have feathers on their feet, it's purely for aesthetics.
