Screaming an other loud noises make some cats aggresive because they think a fight is going on. If the cat comes looking and seems ready to jump in, show them there's no need for it by giving signs of peace: look away, blink, talk slowly and quietly.

>>2887266
I bet this is more or less what the cat thought as she was assuming her humans were mauling each other.
>>
>>2889487
Ah yes the slow blink of trust, surely that won't give the cat the opportunity to attack you when your eyes are closed like a dumb ass.

A friend of mine left his aloe out in the cold (Washington state). The temperature has gone under 30 for about two weeks now. I stole it off his stoop a couple days ago and im wondering if I can nurse it back to health in its current state or if its a waste of time and the plant is completely dead.

I don't see much hopes for it anon, with such colds there might be internal tissue damage and that means almost a certain death.

In my experience Cacti and similar plants can give you the impression that there's a chance of saving them when there isn't, pretty soon it will start to rot even if it is still mostly green.

This, I've had rescue projects that have lasted up to 6 months that even showed signs of growth before eventually succumbing to rot.

I think you misunderstand what I'm saying.

Most of these are "invasive" species that have ALREADY gone native and filled in a niche that has been left empty at least since the early middle ages, if not as far back as the paleolithic.

Yeah there's definitely biodiversity fetishism here, but don't blame that on me, blame that on the absolute madmen that did shit like let zebras run loose in California and camels go wild in Utah and Arizona.
>>
speaking of filling niches, there's a herd of feral zebu (poo in loo cows) loose in some areas of india, where they've almost 1:1 filled the role of their extinct auroch ancestors
>>
>>2890970
This is exactly what I'm talking about.

Thanks for the info senpai. Know where I can read up more about this wonder-zebu?
>>
>>2891273
there's mostly not much to read up on since it's pretty self explanatory: wild cows
national parks/wild life preserves will probably have a blurb about them if present
the interesting area is kuno sanctuary, where they'll be used as prey for asiatic cheetah and lion reintroduction programs (which are on hold because the state where the surviving lion population is and iran which has the last ~100 or so cheetahs are being petty faggots and trying to not let anyone else have them)

Nothing is valuable in any way, because value is a human concept.
The earth could explode and it wouldn't really matter.

Humans are destroying this world, and I don't see it stopping any time soon. Zoomers are all edgy anti-environmentalists. Capitalists are trying to wreck the environment, socialists are trying to wreck the environment. The human population won't stop growing. The people doing the most damage (Western countries) are all becoming fascist and blaming the people doing the LEAST damage to the environment (third world), while completely ignoring the damage they're doing themselves. Everyone is lying about what is happening. Conservatives are just denying anything bad is occuring, while the mainstream scientists are trying to blame literally everything wrong witht the planet on one fucking chemical (CO2), totally ignoring things like the insane amount of soil erosion or freshwater pollution modern agricultural practices are causing. Now there's even a deceitful, cancerous "study" going around that tries to claim that Przewalski's Horses shouldn't be protected because they're "just a breed of horse", which is 100% false (Tarpans are still a wild horse, somehow, inspite of literally just being a breed of horse).

And the worst part is, the solutions humans are proposing only do more damage. How is making luxury cars for rich people supposed to solve fossil fuel dependence? The majority can hardly afford USED cars NOW. How the fuck is introducing tigers and hippos to North America supposed to make up for all the animals humans have exterminated? I'm pretty sure Earth, Toilet World is right on schedule. Humans are dangerously insane, and I see no way to stop this fucking madness.

But you think corporations like democrats so what are we gonna do with you.

the only way we can recover is if the changing environment causes an abrupt economic shit show. Gradual worsening will mean gradual death. An abrupt decline in world trade will lead to a abrupt drop in "quality of life" for first worlders who will demand action

Well no matter what, earth will be gone some day. Why bother protecting something that'll inevitably be destroyed? Especially since OP seems to want human extinction, and the only reason a lot of people want to protect earth is because other people that they personally care about are there and they want them to have a good life.

Sorry in advance, I just needed somewhere to post this. I just had to put my dog down today. This dog was the nicest and most loving little ball of fluff anyone could ever ask for. I'm glad she didn't suffer long and was able to spend her last moments around her family. I love you Rory 4/1/2009 - 12/8/18

Why do persians look like they got hit in the face with a frying pan in an episode of looney tunes? Who thinks facial deformity is cute?
>>
>>2891228
>Why do persians look like...
selective inbreeding
>who thinks its cute?
women and faggots.
a large eye/skull size ratio is "child like" which women love, and fags act like women. most domesticated animals shifted to have higher ratios than their wild counterparts along with other physical changes(look at the fox research). these, pugs, chihuahuas etc take it to a new level which is why they are so popular with women and fags.
>>
>>2891232
>a large eye/skull size ratio is "child like"
Yeah, bigger eyes and little noses are cute. But the cat in OPs picture has long since crossed over into creepy territory: The eyes look like they're falling out of the skull and look in different directions and the only people who shuld find a nose like that cute are ayy lmao fags.

That's not child like anymore, that's special needs like.

I used to have a female cat that did something like that when I was with my ex. She was a kitten at the time, and not that bright.

So this one time I was fapping, she hopped on my lap, not understanding that I was fapping. I picked her up and put her aside, but she jumped back on my lap. So I fapped anyway. As she got older, she understood that "Okay I shouldn't jump up when he's fapping, but I'm going to watch." Which is kind of weird, but will only mess with you if you let it.

Now if your cat is licking your beper or rubbing her pit against you, or is presenting/mounting, then your cat thinks that you are a giant male cat and wants you to mate with her.

Do not mate with your housecat, if it gets out of control, you may have to either get her spayed (if not) and if she is, then you need to do flank pats/scratches that stimulate, but do not penetrate your cat.

In my long lifetime, I have owned many animals. I've seen things that make you question being a pet owner. Ever have to drain a swollen anal gland? Ever had to wipe a cats butt/beper because he's too fat to clean himself? Ever have to give a kitten a full shave and flea bath because they came from a drug infested house?
Ever had a pet that was so attached to you, that it would try to mate with you every day?

Ultimately, its my fault for being a naturalist and not spaying/neutering my pets, so these sort of issues occur, but still, if you would've told me the shit I'd have to put up with 20 years ago I'd tell you that you're a disgusting person.

It's called clickbait. Websites get ad revenue when someone visits their site, regardless if they actually read the content. One of the easiest ways to get lots of people to click on your site is to post an article or list with an outrageous headline that raises many questions but provides few answers. The actual content or merit of the article is irrelevant so long as the headline causes a knee-jerk reaction or morbid curiosity.
