So about 8 weeks ago I got this puppy. He was orphaned cause the mother was old (lost all females in the litter, they came undeveloped and dead along with regular male puppies) and she dried up after half a month feeding them. He's a mutt and was conceived by accident (neighbor's dog jumped the fence), both sire and dam being mutts of our regular regional pariah-type.
Now that his little paws are getting bigger and he is taking on a doggier shape, he's starting to freak me out. That's cause yesterday I was watching a documentary on dingos and the narrator talked about how dingos have rotating wrists and can grab stuff with their paws and that's one of the differences between dingos and regular dogs. Well, my puppy's rotate almost til they're facing up and he uses his front paws in opposite directions to hold literally everything. He can climb like a fucking monkey.
However, he looks very doggy (chest wider than head, flopped ears, wide muzzle) and Australia is on the other side of the world (Brazilian here). Is it possible that a random mutation made him like that? Or maybe I can chalk it up to puppy flexibility and him having learned the clamp-grip from my cat (he uses the scratching pole just like the cat does, can't rule out this possibility)? If it's just puppy flexibility, is he going to be normal and containable as an adult or now that he's learned I'm fucked?

He's almost 4mo now and 8kg. Growing up to be a nice-looking dog too.

Hello /ani/

I have a problem. Last week, a poor dying skunk crawled its way into a space beneath one of the side doors of my house. There's a basement window down there as well. It fell into this ditch and was basically spraying itself continuously for a whole night. The next morning it smelled in the whole house and my mom thought it was a gas leak of some kind, until eventually they found the dying skunk in the ditch by the side of the house, took it out and it was taken away.

So even though the skunk never got into the house, it was so close to the window and door and sprayed so much, it still smells, about a weel later. We have gone to town with scented candles and deodorizers, and I am thinking about nuking the whole house with ozium soon. The smell mostly covereg, but there are still a few pockets where it is noticeable, near the stairs and corners of a few rooms. And outside near the ditch, the smell is still quite pungent.

I am wondering if anyone has any sort of advice dealing with this? (honestly not sure if this is the right board, any suggestions are welcome if you think there might be a better place to post this)

My biggest concern is that the skunk sprayed so much in the ditch, that it might require some sort of more advanced/professional chemical removal. I don't want to nuke the whole house with ozium if the source of the problem is not going to go away. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading, /ani/

Maybe spice it up a bit and let humans fight against animals? Against bears and tigers and shit. Obviously the humans would get a weapon but not something like a pistol or rifle, rather a dagger or something similar where you need to get up close. There would be 1vs1 but also a group of humans vs pack of wolves and such. What do you get when you win you may ask? A million dollar? 10 million? No, the big price is more valuable. Your life. And honor. And prestige. And the biggest dick in town. If you lose you still win because you get eaten so no need for a funeral, saves money.

Guess I need to get Dana White on the phone.

Chihuahuas are healthy as fuck, especially the old type (deer-headed) like the ones OP is taking care of.

Miniature dogs, ones that have been bred down in size from regular-sized dogs (like min pins, mini schnauzers, mini bull terriers, mini poodles, etc.), are shit both in temper and health.
Chihuahuas, on the other hand, are a primitive-type breed, and as such have good temper and long lifespans. I've met 15-year old chihuahua that had yet to go grey.

Nah, they're just usually poorly trained. Because they're small people let them do things big dogs wouldn't get away with. They are allowed to climb you and yap and be shits too often. It's rarely in their nature any more than most other breeds.

Tonight I met a racoon. First I gave him my apples. Then I gave him a glass of water which he spilled. So then I got a cup of the lower grade water (because I was afraid he would go away) and held it for him to drink. Then we played together. He kept biting and I told him "NO MR. RACOON". Then we went to the park and I found him some food that was in a trash can he couldn't get into. It was chicken and noodles with white sauce. He liked the chicken a lot but I made him try the noodles and he liked it. Then a homeless man came and he hissed at the homeless man. He's very protective of me. Then we went home and I gave him the rest of the apples. Now he won't leave me alone. He keeps scratching on my door but I have no things to give him. What do I do? I love Mr. Racoon.
Okay, he scratched on the door again so-
NO WAY. Okay, I made him a cup of coffee and he didn't really like it so I left it outside for him. He comes scratching on my door again and I let him in because he seemed cold. He goes straight for the bathroom and I see the toilet water and think, "Okay, he wants to drink some water,". He then proceeds to get into the toilet and I keep telling him "YOU HAVE TO LEAVE MR. RACOON,". Then he SHITS IN THE TOILET. He's outside scratching on my door. But I already gave him all my food, water, a cup of coffee, a full meal, AND let him use my toilet. So I'm ignoring him. I don't know what to do. Will this racoon keep coming back here?

Hey guys so I've had some awesome experiences raising this snake. She is really cool so I'm trying to make a really in depth post about how great they are and how you should have one.


Yes. Constrictors are generally pretty chill people if they're raised in captivity and not fed in the same cage they're in. They are large, but that solves many problems about finding the snake. When they're 10 feet long you won't say "where's my snake" but rather "I found my snake" followed by the sentence "She was everywhere". They don't see people as food because of some weird long-standing evolutionary hoobajoop about not evolving to see people as prey and the tendencies of predators not to prey on other predators that are high in the trophic pyramid.


What you gotta feed them are rats and/or mice. When they are big you should always videotape the feeding of live rabbits to the snake so as to horrify everyone and make sure people think you're horrible.

The general rule is that if the snake looks like he's about to choke and that you don't think he/she will swallow it, it's good.


Dude just put the snake down anywhere seriously. She'll go to a dark cozy place when it's light out, and will move about when it's dark out. I've left her in a paper bag near my computer for the last 2 days because it's warm here and she's just staying there.


No, large (boa) constrictors have one default setting in captivity: chill. Their other settings are "stop hurting me or I'll bite" or "leave my babies alone or I'll bite". Their psychology is basically "I think I'll lay here for a while", rinse and repeat.

Honestly, after struggling with your post and going home and crying a little: I think he likes it.

Every time I try to take him out he slithers back under his log. When it's warm out he still likes to chill under a log. When he's well fed he stays under his log. The only time he comes out is to regulate body temperature and look for food. After I give him food, he returns to his log.

In the wild he would have to deal with stress like being found by a predator under his log. Or having to search for food (leaving his log).

So he has less stress and isn't smart enough to write a treatise on why his thoughts and actions deserve to be free. Also: less thumbs.

For an animal who spends 99.99% of their time moving from one log to the next, he has it pretty good.

What would make it better though: a bigger cage with more logs. He's not like uncomfortable now, but I think for my peace of mind I'd rather get him into something fairly vertical and nice to look at while he slithers from log to log.

the best thing about living in scotland is the wildlife.
just the other day i was driving into my estate and this beautiful deer was hopping around in the field steps away from my home.
in my garden, there's a fence that seperates us from a forest. we've had foxes and squirrels come to visit us lots of times. whenever i go to visit my boyfriend at night there's around 3-10 foxes running all over the streets and in the fields.

moving to glasgow when i finish university, i wonder if there will be less wildlife.
one time when i got the train into glasgow there was a deer walking along the tracks. it scared me so much incase it got hurt, to this day i dont know if it walked away or not. i like to think it did.

Anyone else see any animals but live in a city?

I once saw a family of deer in Hollywood and a dead possum at school.
Occasionally, I'll walk around town and find a dead raccoon and when the figs are in season, a few will pop up in the backyard at night, fat-assed and bumbling around because they're so fat, they can't sustain their weight on the branches.
And then you go to the beach and see baby sharks swimming around, baby clams, tiny crabs, weird worm-like sea things, stuff like that.
There are kites, hawks, seagulls, and Canadian geese in my area and some friendly-ish squirrels as well. Also, a lot of snakes.

I've got two indoor/outdoor cats, male and a female both mixed. Lately my backyard has been getting visits from a big neighborhood tabby. He's super friendly and chill and isn't afraid of people or other cats. He's also too well fed, clean, and social to be a stray. My cats however are terrified of him and will growl and act territorial. They've swiped at the visiting tabby and run, but the Tabby isn't interested in fighting at all.

Is there anyway to get my cats to at least tolerate our neighbor? He's really cool.

I guess the next time he's chilling with you outside you could pet him with a little blanket or towel and put it where your two kitties spend most of their time inside. Then they'd get used to his smell? Possibly. Only thing I could think of.

Cats can be shits in a similar way to humans, it's part of their charm. Cats will manipulate you and it may be that this guy beats the fuck out of the other locals when no one is looking. It may be that your cats are the horrible ones but you don't know. Cats spend a lot of time doing stuff when you're asleep or at work. Just be careful not to fuck over the cats you've committed to or to drive them away.

So it's been a decade or more since I kept pet fish, and lately I've been thinking about getting a goldfish, and in doing so I wanted to get the classic goldfish bowl that every 8 year old kid had next to their bed growing up. Pic related.

But doing research online, there seems to be a lot of passionate, vocal goldfish advocates who would like to see me lynched for even considering putting a goldfish in a bowl. According to these folks, a single goldfish requires a minimum of 30 gallons and that's because my goldfish will grow to be bigger than a hamster and live for 15 years.

Now, if what they're saying is true, fuck it, I won't get a goldfish. But I wanted to make this thread and see if anyone here has some experience with goldfish and can confirm/deny these things. Maybe you can recommend me another small fish I can keep in a bowl that won't live longer than my cat.

Goldfish are great outdoor fish. They get big and they shit a lot. If you get a plastic pool and a pond pump you can make a bog filter that will cycle the water and take the fish shit out of the water. You can just cut cucumbers into quarters and they will eat them. That and any aquatic plants you have.

Fighting fish are really good small tank fish but you do need a filter or you will have to change the water every day. They shit just as much if not more than gold fish relative to their size and they don't eat pond scum. The fancier ones are susceptible to fin rot in poor quality water, not only does it look shitty but it's painful for the fish. If you want one get a 5 gallon tank with a small filter for the least maintenance.

If you just want a bowl without a filter I recommend cherry shrimp. They are low maintenance and don't require a filter plus they are bright and pretty. You can throw some moss, sand and aquatic plants in there and it will look nice.

I just upgraded from a pool to a stock tank and moved all the shit in for winter. I'm going to get some more plants in the bog filter. There are 5 large calico goldfish in here and a large weather loach. The orange parts of the goldfish pop under the light, I like my fish to pop.

I went to the vet cause my cat came home injured with a broken leg. They said the femur is broken in 2 places and they can't cast it and he'd have to have it amputated, wait to see if it heals, or get metal plates on his femur.

Well I kept him home and he gets around good I had him inside for a week and a half and he climbs the chair, chases toys, runs around, climbs stuff, climbs trees, runs but idk what to do. He stands and walks on it but when he sits on it it bends sideways a little bit and I'm sketched out. I know he wouldn't like surgery and shit but I don't want him to be fucked for life.

I also heard that the plates can cause pain or they can cause pain way later in life and he gets around fine now and I'm scared of surgery going wrong or sething I don't even want to hand my cat over to a facility and shit he has anxiety. They told me that it would be like 3k+ for the surgery (I don't care I made that much in a month alone) but my sales are online and it's all in a PayPal account and I'm waiting to get an id to get the money.

My parents called a place and we live in the middle of nowhere and they're all like 2 hours away and my parents are alcoholics who don't care about anything or have any money and I have no car. Idk what to do. I just want what's best for my cat I don't care about my money and shit I just want him to have a good life. The place my parents called and said the surgery place would only take cash upfront I think that's fucking insane and it sounds like a lie to me. There's no way that the place charges 3-5k cash up front in hand only.

My mom says that they would have to rebreak his leg to do surgery and put it in place with the plates now.

if you leave his femur broken the fracture will heal misaligned. this will mean his hip, knee, ankle, and toe joints will be torqued at the wrong angles, and he will wear out his meniscus and cartilage much faster. the plates may cause stiffness and an "aching in the bones", esp. with barometric changes, but it will not be nearly as degenerative as allowing him to live his life with a crooked bent femur.

Is it too late? It's been a little bit of awhile and his leg seems better and not really crooked or fucked. This all sucks balls.
