I'm a germaphobe and a botanist and I was wondering if there were any pets for people afraid of bodily waste.
I just want to love something.

I want an Alaskan Malamute, the only issue is that I've got a dog allergy. It's been getting better over the years, but I'm wondering if there's treatment to get over it. I love adult malamutes and their babies are very cute.

Sure you like how they look, but will you like actually taking care of one? Most people don't realize the lifestyle changes they will need to make and the money they need to put into the maintenance of the dog.

Kitten care

When I got my cat fixed, I told the vet she also had a UTI. When I picked her up post-surgery, I was given pain medication and antibiotics. When asked what the antibiotics were for, I was told they were for both the post-surgery care AND the UTI.

I was only given enough of the antibiotic to last 3 days though. Does that sound right? Im starting to think they forgot I mentioned the UTI at all because she still chooses to piss in boxes/on paper/on shirts that miss the hamper

Help me, anons. I am trying to train my cat to walk on a leash. For that I am taking him to a relatively peaceful but still frequented park where you can hear birds and other people walking around. It is, however, terrifying for the cat.
He is 7 months old. I will post some webms of my experience. Basically, he shakes profusely in fear and refuses to leave his transportation bag. It gets to a point in which he will even refuse food, something he has never ever done.
Does anyone have advice regarding this? Is it normal behavior for kittens? Will he get better if I keep insisting on bringing him outdoors?

Oh I apologize for the videos being upside down. 4chan has a problem with iPhone's pictures and videos.
At the second day, I unmounted his transportation bag so as to force him to go outside. He kept meowing and doing some very timid moving around, then eventually locked up in my lap, shaking in fear thorough the entire process.

Finally, I started walking around the park with the cat in my lap, and bringing it close to some plants or trees. It would smell the trees and even try to eat the plants, but somehow simultaneously maintain the state of shock and fear. At some point it wanted to climb down to a bush, then it remained hidden under it. That ended the second day.
Any tips for the third day onward? Or will my cat never enjoy outdoors? I am doing this for him, not for me. If he does not enjoy it, I don't see the benefit.

Took my kitten to his neuter appointment today, got a call a few hours later that he passed away during the surgery. Fuck man, I think this is the worst I’ve felt in my life. Rest In Peace, little guy.

It is a breed a thing. While they love to be with their master, they dont live to please their master like say, a Retriever or Lab. This, combined with their hight intelligence, means they get bored of simple games like fetch really easy. Ive found that mixing fetch up with keep-a-way really helps.

They expect everyone to bend over to cater to their nutritionally deficient diets and they militantly try to force on others. Worse, they even feed their carnivore pets and infants with this garbage - who often die.

They also reject animal products, luddites the lot of them. At least animal made products degrade, whereas the plastic garbage they try to replace them with, will pollute this planet for hundreds of years. So moronic!!!!

Vegetarians I can understand, maybe they just don't like meat, or it doesn't agree with their digestion. It's fine. At least they're still able to eat healthily and don't sanctimoniously preach to everyone about their diet.

Fuck vegans, honestly

The O’Learys had been feeding their four children a diet of raw fruits and vegetables, according to police reports
nooooo veganbros this can't be happening

We've had this thread a million times before. It always boils down to you cherrypicking the most idiotic vegans in the world and then claiming they're all like that because you think they're trying to take your precious meat away. Because you've fallen for the (((American Beef Council))) bullshittery and now associate eating meat with your entire masculinity. The animal products you consume are so deeply ingrained into your personality now that you feel threatened by any change that might make your chosen food products even slightly more difficult to obtain.
I agree, rhat vegan couple is retarded. Now quit fetishizing your hatred for a community you've clearly have zero direct communication with.
>wow ur a butthurt vegan
Wrong and painfully predictable. I'm a big fat fuck who just chowed down on three Taco Bell burritos. I'm just sick of this Facebook-tier manchild horsecrap. We've been through it so many times I can practically read your shallow fucking mind.

Stop posting shitty news blog articles and quit jerking your limp, impotent dick off about how cool you are for hating some smelly hippies. It just makes you look like everyone's least favorite uncle, that one who only exists to whine about Obama at family gatherings. Seriously, cut it out.

>A cruel woman was filmed squirting Tabasco sauce into a tiny dog's eyes as it writhed in pain while her friends giggled.

The horrific footage was shared online and showed her holding the little dog in one had and a bottle of the hot chilli sauce in the other.

She gestures the bottle of sauce towards the dog's face before the animal is seen whimpering and frantically rubbing its face into the bed. As the dog grows more distressed, it desperately hits its face with his paws.

It's believed those recording the sickening incident are Spanish, although it is not known where exactly the clip was filmed. Social media users reacted with horror at the footage, with one calling the woman a "cruel beast". Another, Valeria Matilda, said:
>"You are a truly heartless person. You should suffer as this innocent soul is doing."

Mireya Lozano said:
>"What the hell do you see as fun here? If they do it to her, would she see this as fun?"

The video has been viewed thousands of times online and has been shared over 10,000 times.
