>Cousin's (who I live next to) dog

>starts growling at me
>get him some treats
>still growling
>won't even touch the treats
>get him some water
>try to put the water near him
>he tries to bite me

I know it's just because he's old, but this feels so bad :(
He's probably going to die soon as well.. He's got bad arthritis and his back legs are beginning to give out. The extreme heat isn't helping either.
See if you can get him shaved. Dogs with matted fur are irritable af from the constant pain and discomfort.
This. Even if he is double coated just go and get him shaved. Matts are painful to brush out. If the matts aren't all over his body and just in a few spots, have the groomer just shave out the matts and brush the rest. Also inform the groomer that he tries to bite so they can muzzle him.

I remember grooming an old American Eskimo dog. The owners let him shit all over himself, and I ended up soaking the shit off it its ass and then shaving his butt bald. He looked like a dumbass after, but keeping it shaved meant he was much more sanitary. He also tried to bite, but was very kind once groomed.
It's not my dog, so I can't really do much.
But I get where you're coming from with the mats. I had to have them shaved last year because they had a shit ton.

And also, the mats aren't that bad really. They're just small and scattered, you can easily pull them out as well.

Nothing like my aforementioned cats who looked like this.

Rat fashion.

Your rat is poor, what a faggot
God I miss having rats!
Damn dude I am so sorry
I am in similar boat right now only no pet testicular injuries to speak of, thankfully
My sympathies.
GO to vet anyway... Someone will take pity and stitch up injuries if it's not too late.

Requesting the pic of a birthday rat, where the rat is wearing a birthday hat and its tongue is slightly exposed, and a small cake with a single candle is present and there is writing on a paper or something like that, that says 'happy 1st birthday'
It's one of the funniest rat pics in the world, I think i got it on an old hard drive or my old ipad, I'll look for it and post it if I find it, meanwhile if anyone has mentioned pic, please post it!

Honestly I didn't realize /an/ was such a slow board. but this thread always reminds me.
>stings can last weeks-months
Fuck that who the hell is going to want to cuddle with that
Woo lad
I've been posting a platypus a day for years now and I don't plan on stopping any time soon.
Only the males and only seasonally. What do you really only ever want to cuddle safe things?

This is your daily reminder to want a platypus.

The males in particular are said to have a slight musk very similar to foxes.

Work on your lawn, or don't go out of your climate . I am central european, and seed local clovers. It's beautiful, doesn't grow above certain heights and can survive drought and flood
i have mostly moss and dandelions. dandelion roots are good for digestion

Before someone says it, yes the cat should go to the vet. I've already said it but she can't afford it and it's not my cat.
Her 5 year old cat randomly stopped eating and drinking, has lost weight, and the inner ears are turning yellow. She's not acting lethargic yet but I assume it's only a matter of time. She is spayed.
Does anyone know what could possibly be causing this? And what can be done to help?
4 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Tell her to take the cat to the vet and ask for a payment plan. Vets know this shit is expensive, if you ask they’ll work something out with you.
You’ve waited too long, there’s no chance of a cheap fix anymore.
If her skin is turning yellow, it could be liver failure. How does her gums look and the rest of her skin? If they are also yellow, her liver is almost certainly failing.
Loss of appetite and weight loss is a major sign of liver failure.
She needs to see a vet. Some milk thistle may help in the meantime, to help support the liver. Only a small amount, though I dont know how much.
Oh fuck off, you know as well as we do it needs to see a vet or it will almost certainly die. Don't come back when it does and tell us about it like it makes you so sad. Either do something or don't pretend you care.
>own pet
>can't afford to take it to the vet
Stop fucking doing this. Take the cat and your dad's gf round the back of the barn and put a bullet in them.

Hey guys my goofball turtle got stuck a few days ago and i took a pic before helping the dude out and im wondering what sex my turtle is. Also its names polnareff and its a goofy dude

I would get him a bigger cage
that's not even a cage, that's a torture chamber. how can anyone look at this shit and think they are doing a good job keeping a pet?
Exactly. Even the most retarded reptile owners know that you should'nt use fucking gravel
Hey OP, measure how long your turtle is by inches. Then multiply it by ten. That's how many gallons your turtle needs of room.
what the fuck dude? Does it really look like your turtle is happy in there or has enough room in there? Are you 12 years old?

If you actually take the time to properly socialize them they make great pets. Always go for the hand reared at a good store if you can, chain pet stores are garbage and I've worked for one for about a year.
Cockatoos, Patagonian conures and a handful of other birds.
Cockatiels too, they're like ten bucks
I always wanted to feed one to my cat. He is indoors so he doesnt know what its like to kill an animal
It seems that the toxo has gotten really bad for you.
How about instead cutting off your dick and feeding it to your cat. For owning a cat you effeminate fuck.

Why is it called a bee if it makes a v sound when it flies?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Make a vvvvvv sound and listen to some bees making a 'buzzing' sound and say I'm wrong
I got a better question. Is the sound of buzzing insects annoying because we evolved that way, or is it just coincidence?

I mean why can't a fly in my ear sound like a gentle fluttering? It's intrinsically a sound that makes me instinctively slap the shit out of my own ear.
From Middle English bee, from Old English bēo, from Proto-Germanic *bijō (compare West Frisian and Dutch bij, Upper German Beie, Danish and Swedish bi), from Proto-Indo-European *bʰi- (compare Old Irish bech (“bee”), Welsh bydaf (“beehive”), Latin fūcus (“drone”), Latvian bite (“bee”), Russian пчeлá (pčelá, “bee”)).
The Bees round these parts make a ''VRRROOOOOOOSH'' sound
can't help it
small insects ... less wing area ...
they have to run higher flaps per minute than butterflies
dremel tools don't sound like ceiling fans

So many girls these days love horses; as would be expected! Horses are powerful and strong and have incredible endurance. A remarkable animal indeed. I have no problem with liking horses - in fact I myself do hold a deep respect and admiration for the equestrian race! No, my issue is the fact that, because so many girls have this infatuation with horsekind, they see the enormous, veiny cock protruding from between its legs, they see the enormous, seemingly endless emissions they are capable of ejaculating, and they can't help but fantasize that a horse might be the ideal lover. And objectively I would have to agree with them! Physically they have more stamina than any possible human partner, and their penis is larger in both length and girth. Animalistic instinct know nothing of consent, and feel no empathy, so of course they can fantasize that the horse would give them the most brutal and hardcore fucking they could ever dream of. There is no concern regarding STDs or unwanted babies, no condoms or birth control are necessary. It seems to be the perfect situation! This is one of the reasons I think that I can't get a GF since there is no way I could compete with that.
No, you're not funny and yes, you should fuck off.

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

You mad?

that's absolute feel-good bullshit

feral cats have genocided countless species of birds to Extinction they don't even eat them they just kill for fun
OP is doing worse for the world
Op here. Im actually going to kill the cat. Just want to give it my trust ,so i can crack its skull open and leak its brains.
Kek. Use one of those picks they hit baby seals with.
Guess who's hungry again.

Why dewormed? Shouldnt animals have evolved to get rid of the worms themselves? My indoor 2 cats had worms from a friends cat for 2 years and then their body got rid of it. Never seen them again. And no im not a shitty owner i feed them better food than most, clean their 2 litter boxes twice a day and give them loads of attention. I just believe our/animals bodies are stronger than people realize, theyve been dealing with these things for hundreds of thousands of years.
