It has to do with Oil gland secretions causing an unpleasent feeling to most cat's skin. Cats who do not mind water are either A: Have a genetic trait where these oils are not produced B: Have a high tolerance against this unpleasent sensation or C: Have protections against said unpleasent sensations.

Yeah I put mine on outside of the door and inside of the enclosure since the doors aren't flush with the sides and since the sides are 3/4" plywood I didn't want the doors weight to be put on the width of the plywood but the face of it.
Learn and live, next time I have to build an enclosure it should turn out better.

Hello lads and ladettes, my fren has six litters on the go and over 30+ odd babies already so i'm getting some in a few weeks. They're thoroughbreds, not de-scented or snipped or anything, au naturel.

Been watching YT videos but they're YT videos...

Need some advice:

>Potty training

Is there a tried and tested way? Some youtubers just seem to stick cat strips in the corners of the room, others just seem to be cleaning shit off of everywhere all the time, others seem to have a tier system in the cage and they poop in the bottom one away from beds and others have them all going to one corner.

>Sexes

Not sure how many to get, thinking two or four, is there any issues with boy/girl apart from the obvious? Is maybe two girl one boy etc better?

>I've had three ferrets and I've only successfully trained one to use a litter box. They used to just sleep or play in it. You can put puppy pads down in their favourite poop corner.
I thought birdfags were weird...
>>
>>3055872
>putting the cage on a shelf
Unless your ceilings are 10 feet high, you wont have enough space. We're not talking about small animals here, you need a big cage.

Puppy pads are easy to use and dispose of so you'll get used to it. Buy them in bulk online.

Your friends Grandad isn't a vet so you'll need to find a vet to take them to still.

The bathroom will need to be very big with natural light. They need space to run and play. They probably won't poop in a wet area like a shower.

They can be bought out of heat/rut by mating them. Please neuter them if you're not going to breed them. Ferrets reach sexual maturity early - jills at about 4 months and hobs at 6 to 8 months. Hobs can stay in rut for months and jill will stay in heat indefinitely - meaning they can die of aplastic anemia.

>£50 a month for 2 ferrets?
Yes, at least. Ferret medicine and veterinary care is expensive and I've never found a good insurance so I have a savings account instead.
>>
>>3055881
I was meaning more as pups, putting my finger deeper into their mouths as they’re biting and just exploring what’s what then, pushing it down they can’t get leverage so they spit it out.

That looks huge, was thinking of putting three cheap little dog cages together with cable ties and cutting the tops off. Then getting plastic compartments for the bottom. Add all that up just cost as much as buying a normal one though so might as well get that. There’s a decent one with four compartments (two up two down for 100 but it’s wood and I don’t want it to smell of pee. Unless something comes up on a market place just going for that, hopefully a cheap secondhand one comes up for sale.
>>
>>3056326
Was going to put them in a vet anyway and if they’re going to mature in 6-8 months they’re definitely getting neutered, I don’t want a house full.

The bathroom is big, tilled floor too so easy to clean up. They won’t try to poo in my shoes and trainers will they? They’re in that area.
>>
>>3056506
They might not poop in your shoes but they will run off with them and chew them.

I have 3 African dwarf frogs in a 10 gallon tank, along with a black orchid betta. Suddenly one frog got huge and i thought it was dropsy but only the stomach blew up. Hes also been acting normal. eating, not hiding 24/7, doesn't stay at the top or bottom. Also I think it might be female but frogs don't get pregnant like that. Ive been on the look out for eggs anyways because I did see two mate. Not sure what it could be. I'm assuming I overfed them but if I did, how do I help him? Its been about a week since this happened.

Weren't all of em pretty tall even mammals?

Mammals in that time were nocturnal and dug burrows. They were also abundant enough to survive the extinction, so the night time 70 million years ago was probably infested with little rat-like mammals.
>>
>>3055902
Probably a lot like being a small mammal in the tropics nowadays. Make a nest, find a mate, go foraging in the undergrowth. If you find something smaller than you, eat it. If you find something bigger than you, run. Whether the big thing has fur, feathers, or scales doesn't particularly matter.

what is truly wrong with cats? none of my family display the symptoms of toxoplasmosis, and they keep mice the fuck away from the house, killing one of the little faggots about once a week. i feel like there is an unfair stigma against them and cat hate is an autistic meme for those who have nothing real to hate
