Try walking past a dead one for weeks at a time, I walk to work because it's only a block away and there's almost always a dead possum during summer greeting me with the stench of decaying meat. There was one possum who died in 2014 whose little mummified hand disappeared a few months ago. Glad I don't have to look at that thing anymore.

Hi fellas, recently my ferret died from old age (9 years, loved him zealously), after months of mourning I finally decided to get a new pet. I stopped at either a fennec fox or a husky.
Afaik huskies need to see you as a pack leader to be responsive to commands and such. As for fennec foxes, the information seems to be quite vague or I maybe I'm looking in the wrong places. So any insight on those two is highly appreciated.
I'm open to suggestions too, I know little about any pets except ferrets, so maybe some other pet not mentioned above could be better for me (not another ferret).
I live alone in a 3 room appartment, as for the climate, it is continental. Cash is not a problem. Hope you can help me out.
(P.S. the ferret in the pic isn't mine)

Sure, they are quite exotic, but I have personally seen one. A pity I couldn't approach the owner at the time. Are they that hard to handle?

I thought I heard* dumb me.
There's a fine line between being an alpha and being an annoying dick.
They dig and dig a lot. Your furniture will not survive.

If you do go for the fennec I would realllllly look into a proper set up for it. They need a proper yard and a place to dig. That is what they do.
I've only seen a video on normiebook of a pet fennec, I really doubt you can get one as a pet. (having some kind of fox as a pet would be a dream Come True for me)
Also, where do you live?

Just took in a dog from some shitty owner [ofc they were trans and borderline abused the poor thing] it's doing healthy, bit on the light side from previous owners making it a vegan fixing that steadily now, but they also kept her in a cage for like 18 hours a day and she just endlessly clawed at it and now her claws are a bit fucked up
I'm guess its a fungus infection but don't know too much
Just looks like the claw was torn off while trying to find a way out of the cage. The dog just needs love, meat, and time.
Might want to go to the vet to make sure it's not infected. The quick is hanging out so you might want to bandage it to keep the raw nerve from getting further damaged or picking up an infection

Got some lithops about 4 months back and one is sprouting it's new leaves but the other isn't, and I suspect they're in different points in the yearly cycle. How risky is it to very lightly water the non-leafing one on a rare occasion without splitting the leafing one?
Sure, that's a primitive hybrid, but to create a stable hybrid that can be propagated in and of itself is not often as simple as just taking two plants, breeding them and saying WALA.
See F1 hybrids.
Something to note about that image isn't just the colour of the leaves but also they're placement on the plant. The placement more or less is to denote age. The lower leaves are considered older whereas the younger leaves are up top. So a phosphorous deficiency will have the lowest leaves producing anthocyanins with little chlorophyll but the younger upper leaves won't show that for now. It doesn't look like a disease, typically necrosis will be very very localized, and biotrophic disease won't cause damage like that. Check your fertilizer % breakdown and make sure it has what your plant needs. Did you move the plant recently to a very bright location? Because if you did and the plant wasn't used to it, this might be a stress response
what are you talking about? you can easily clone any desirable plant to mass-propagate it through TC.
not him, but what does TC mean?

Guys I think i fucked up

Im a brand new fish owner and just got my tiger barbs yesterday, i fed them for the first time a minute ago and they are now swimming in place and throwing up some of their food.

Help what did i do?
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
What did you feed them?
I'm no expert, but I read a lot that cycling with fish can be pretty taxing on them, since water parameters are far from ideal yet. Maybe that's what's going on?
If you cycle with fish you'd want to use something hardy.
I've never looked into tiger barbs myself so idk how well they'd do in an uncycled tank.
Hopefully they'll do well but prepare to replace a couple if you have to.
You also said you used some tap water, have you used any sort of water softener or anything to treat it?
if you're falling for the
>fish cycling
meme then expect those fish to die in the process, thats why you buy cheap hardy ones and not with fucking tiger barbs, don't cycle with fish you want to keep
or cycle the normal way, with an empty tank with some plants, and some cheap food to speed up
or try a bottled bacterial colony if you're desperate
god I hate the faggots that recomend fish cycling
Fish cycling really isn't ideal, but get some Prime to neutralize some of the ammonia/nitrites in the water while the cycle continues. Do a water change every couple days and dose with Prime after each time.

Stress Zyme might help the fish tolerate things a little too; Tiger Barbs aren't great for cycling (I'm not a fan of it at all, really), but they're more resilient than some other fish you could've tried it with. I'm just glad you didn't use Rams.

Did you check your PH/water hardness?

Could it be that my cat sometimes jumps at me and bites my hand or arm so I come play with him?

He doesn't bite "hard" by the way, he is never agressive, but usually when he bites me it's to tell me that what I'm doing is bothering him.
He does like to play a lot, and sometimes he just comes to me in this manner, jumps and bites my hand for whatever reason even though I'm doing nothing.
My condolences anon. Hope you're doing alright.
Jup, that's an attempt at playing, just go with it.

Why do they believe that torturing the animal makes the meat taste good? Does dog meat even taste good? Considering a lot of these are street dogs aren't they just eating garbage since dogs can't really hunt naturally? And don't they know stress just makes meat worse?

China is a supercolony

But I get the no empathy thing. That's really bad over there.
Because certain animals were domesticated for food and certain animals were domesticated for companionship over tens of thousands of years. If you can't understand why breaking such a tradition is seen as a faux pass, you may be legitimately autistic and need immediate institutionalization.
Yeah, look up videos in China of people getting splattered in traffic or old people dying of heart attacks and everyone just keeps walking past like nothing happened.
Not everyone lives in urban shitholes anon.

There are still people who hunt, herd and guard with their dogs. The fact that an animal can do all those things plus help the disabled and more is incredible in itself and should be looked into, respected and worked with.

Anyone who doesn't see this might as well kill themselves because a dog is more useful to society than these autists.
This. Dogs are more useful than urban liberals.
