"Thou who passest on this path, If haply thou dost mark this monument, Laugh not, I pray thee, though it is a dog's grave. Tears fell for me, and the dust was heaped above me By a master's hand."

"My eyes were wet with tears, our little dog, when I bore thee (to the grave)... So, Patricus, never again shall thou give me a thousand kisses. Never canst thou be contentedly in my lap. In sadness have I buried thee, and thou deservist. In a resting place of marble, I have put thee for all time by the side of my shade. In thy qualities, sagacious thou wert like a human being. Ah, me! What a loved companion have we lost!"

"This is the tomb of the dog, Stephanos, who perished, Whom Rhodope shed tears for and buried like a human. I am the dog Stephanos, and Rhodope set up a tomb for me."

"[Myia] never barked without reason, but now he is silent."

"Here the stone says it holds the white dog from Melita, the most faithful guardian of Eumelus; Bull they called him while he was yet alive; but now his voice is prisoned in the silent pathways of night."

"Issa's more pert than Lesbia's sparrow love, Purer than kisses of a turtle-dove, More sweet than hundred maidens rolled in one, Rarer than wealthy India's precious stone. She is the pet of Publius, Issa dear; She whines, a human voice you seem to hear."

You missed the saddest part about Stephanos and Rhodope:


18/01/28, from Termessos, is a very interesting inscription on a small sarcophagus of a dog named Stephanos. The epitaph seems to have comprised three epigrams, of which the first is largely lost, but the following two survive intact:

This is the tomb of the dog, Stephanos, who perished,
Whom Rhodope shed tears for and buried like a human (vv. 4-5).
I am the dog Stephanos, and Rhodope set up a tomb for me (v. 6).

The small sarcophagus was found near the inscribed sarcophagus of Rhodope herself.

Yes, but its for the owner.

It's called "Remington", just insert one of the pellets into your feeder of choice, insert into your mouth, and dispense the pellet to give your cat what it deserves.

Excellent

Last thread vanished suddenly. Very mysterious. Almost as mysterious as birds. This is a general bird thread, so feel free to share and discuss anything bird related here, whether it be about pet birds or wild birds.

If you have a pet bird or want to get a pet bird, please consider feeding your bird a healthy varied diet including fresh vegetables and a good quality pellet as opposed to purely feeding dry seed mix (if the bird is a common seed eating variety such as parrots).

Even the smallest of parrots can live longer than cats or dogs, so keep that in mind before making the commitment. Birds are also loud, messy, and destructive.

Try clicker training do effective training of birds or pretty much any other animal. Google search "clicker training parrot" and there is a lot of material. Trick Training is a good bonding experience and gives the bird mental stimulation.

I got my budgie a cage mate yesterday and the new bird seems like it might be sick even though it displayed no symptoms at the store. Its sleeping more than the other bird during the day and has its feathers a bit more fluffed up. Otherwise it seems fairly healthy, its more vocal than the first bird, preens him, and seems to move about the cage fine. Is it the on set of illness or is it just adjusting to a new, slightly colder home? Wondering if there are any preventative measures I could take as well.
>>
>>2892226
It's pretty much impossible to tell at that point without a round of labwork that will cost exponentially more than the bird (And probably won't get results until after you start to see physical symptoms anyway). If you think it's cold, try covering the back half of the cage so that it traps warmer air a little bit.

In my personal experience alot of people get them for aesthetic reasons. I've known people who have gotten huskies and given them away within a month because they were too dumb to realise it was a relatively high maintenance dog. My sister's neighbors got one for their kid, who ended up just getting bored of playing with it. It has a decent sized garden for itself but it always seems lonely. My brother in law ended up cutting a hole in the fence and all it does is look through it all day.

Watching my spaniel was the highlight of it's day

I think I spotted a mouse at home today (live city centre in a flat on the third floor). How can I make certain it was a mouse and also get rid of it without calling pest control?
>>
>>2892209
Where there is mouse, there is mouse poop. Easy sticky traps or classic baited mouse traps in high mouse traffic areas, wherever you see droppings.

Many places that sell mouse traps will also sell non lethal ones if you want to go that route, however unless you're in for a drive to dispose of a mouse you'll just have to deal with him all over again in a few weeks when he finds his way back in.

Other than that, kitty cat and let nature take it's course.
>>
>>2892209
Come on, man.
>>
>>2892215
i know of these of course, didnt want to use traps that my family or I can step on in the middle of the night.

>>2892214
Do I really have to dispose of the mouse a miles a way when I live in a high story building? Is it really likely it comes back all the way to the same floor?

The main issue is I havent seen mouse dropping or chewed food, I just spotted something in the corner of my eye today and it disappeared before I could check it out. Wondering if I imagined it

Used to have a colony of Armadillidium nasatum. Of my local species they seemed to be both the hardiest and the most active. Very inquisitive and always looking for food. They honestly reminded me of tiny hamsters. I even got lucky and found a fully orange morph in the wild. Sadly isopods are very hard to selectively breed and I never managed to isolate the color.

Octopuses are awesome right?
- Intelligent
- Tentacles
- Venomous
- Elastic
- Camouflage/Invisibility
- Shapeshifter/Mimic
- Ink shooting
- Bonus points for looking alien and cool as hell

But I always feel like Im cheating when I say the Octopus is my favorite animal because Im going off a collection of traits from very different species. So my question is, which is the most "complete" octopus species? Which is the closest to having the full package of the qualities mentioned above?
