What is the the oldest age of your current pet guys? I'm curious to see whose been blessed with a long living pet and how good you take care of your pets /an/ and whats the oldest age one of your pets ever got to, tell me about your pets guys and any stories that stick out to you with them?

This is Reese's my cat and oldest friend who is about 21 years old now and still going strong just cries and howls a lot more now I think cause he forgets where he is or people are I'm not sure. He came to us when I was around 8 years old, I'm 29 so he has been with me all my life for the most part. My family took him in from my cousin who found him on the street and he was just going to give it to a shelter but Mom said no way in Hell and saved him.
My parents joke I'm a cat whisperer when its nice outside I can walk him down the street with me and he will follow right behind like a dog and when I jog back he picks up the pace too. One of my favorite memories is when I took him into the backyard to let him chill for a bit and as soon as I open the door he goes into high alert mode because of a bunch of birds eating on the ground. Well in a few seconds of me opening the door he did that fast low to the ground walk on these birds and I'm thinking no way hes gunna get one, nope most flew away but he jumped like a young gun snatched on out the air and took it down. I was so surprised I yelled out Oh shit no Reese's let it go, to which he did and it flew away and I don't know if its because I said it to let it go or because he just wanted to fuck with the bird but even in his old age he still had it.

I have a 17 year old Siamese cat. She’s been with me since I was 3 years old (I’m now 20).
She sleeps with me under the covers every night. Loves to curl up next to me. Every morning when I wake up she’s still snoozing next to me.
I love her dearly and plan to get a tattoo of her pawprint.

Got this new hamster, usually an invert guy but saw him up for adoption at the pet store and couldn't help myself. He's a Russian hamster and I call him Ivan. From day one he jumped into my hand and day three he was fine with being picked up and stroked. I love him already, so post your adopted pets.

Everyone with your fantastic cage/tank set ups- bravo. It's heart warming to see so many putting time and thought into their hams and mouses.
>>
Cagelets get fucked.
I had a giant three level cage for my pet rats back when I had them years ago. Was filled to the brim with hammocks and ledges and perches. Warmed my heart watching them scurry back into the cage completely on their own when they were done exploring/having playtime outside because it was such a home for them. Having a cage that is above and beyond for a pet is when you’ll truly see it thrive.
>>
guys why is it so common in america to use plastic tubes/hides or mainly bright colored things, like the bedding, even if the owner is an adult? personally i like natural looks/colors in a cage, wooden hides, moss, branches, dried plants/flowers, stones. you can get realy creative with those things and it is a great eye catcher.
>>
>>3250114
Because plastic is a cheap material so it’s used to make cheap shit in pet stores sold to kids who are oblivious on how to actually take care of a hamster

Why are there so many species differences? Some are jet black, some have different patches of greys and uneven browns. Are they all the same purebreed, or is it a mutt country where everything is a mix between coyotes for the brown, and domestic dogs for the blacks.

Does a purebreed grey wolf have any brown in his fur?

>>
>>3250049
Muh wolfs are so charismatic and majestic and beautiful therefore they must never be harmed. Also wolves kill each other all the time and they can barely reach five years of age in the wild because of the constant unnecessary fighting. Some wolves are more tyrannical than others. Will even kill harmless animals in their territory for sport without eating them.
>>
You know how faggot deer always jump in front of your car? That's because retards hunted all the wolves.
>>
>>3250069
Is it because of government mandated wolf control or by mere recreational hunters killing a couple of wolves during wolf hunting season?

what's the best dog for defense against home invasions?

Cane Corso:
>docile and affectionate to their owners, loving with children and family, and easily trained. They are an unequalled protector of the owners and their property.
>They can also be very aggressive toward strangers and difficult to handle from a veterinary standpoint.
>Cane Corso were used to guard property, livestock, and families, and some continue to be used for this purpose today. Historically it has also been used by night watchmen, keepers, and, in the past, by carters and drovers.

Kangal:
>The Kangal Shepherd Dog's protectiveness, loyalty, and gentleness with small children and animals has led to its growing popularity as a guardian for families as well, as it regards people as its "flock" and guards them with extreme devotion.
>The Kangal Shepherd Dog is calm, controlled, independent, powerful and protective. They may be aloof towards strangers, but a well-socialized Kangal Dog is friendly with visitors and especially children.
>A well-trained Kangal Shepherd Dog is sensitive and alert to changing situations, responding to threats with judicious warnings and courageous action if necessary.
>They make good guardians of livestock and humans alike, but they may not be suitable for inexperienced dog owners, as the independent intelligence of the Kangal makes for a difficult pupil.
>The Kangal Shepherd Dog's first instinct is to place itself between the perceived threat and the sheep or master. Once the sheep are safely behind it, the Kangal Shepherd Dog confronts the intruder.

Although I am skeptical of Kangals because of how hard they get memed online as pitbull killers, plus I have never even actually seen one or met anyone who has ever had one.

I had e female pitbull for over 13 years and she was way to nice to strangers to be guard dog. Now i've got a Cane Corso and he's the best guard dog i could wish for, while at the same time he's super nice to welcomed guests and is really gentle with our kids and other animals in the house. I'm never gonna get a different dog breed again. Cane corso for life. Super intelligent, brave, loyal and balanced dogs(as long as they have a job).

>>3249943
If you want to give toxoplasmosis to the cat and yourself, then yes, they can have a little salami. It's rare case but they also can get deadly cat diesases from pork. Ofc. it mostly works when you have uncooked meat, but I wouldn't risk it.
