In my experience there is nothing to the emotional intelligence and social ability of a woman that is not matched or exceeded by a (smart) dog, which is saying a lot because women are generally superior to men in those areas. They are like if you took most of the human mind and trimmed away the capacity for intellectual delusion and conscious evil.

Sadly that's needed for the superior self preservation ability, language, and tool use. They can still figure out latches and dispenser buttons though so that's pretty neat

Personally I've never touched or eaten a fish before in my life, but quarantine's been making me increasingly more and more interested in fish. But I'm curious: what is your favorite species of fish?

This is a really good question that I can't come up with a good answer for. I would say that my overall favorite fish is the Round Goby. I love these guys so much, they have so much personality and have pretty much become a part of the ecosystem in the Great Lakes and it's tributaries. They have unique looking faces, and their origins have always made them interesting for the main reason that I had never seen any fish native to Eastern Europe (or any of Europe for the most part). I guess the only thing I don't like about them is maybe the downsides they have had for the environment, and maybe the fact that I've just kind of spent so much time around them for so long that they aren't as special as they used to be for me. Of course, there are a lot of other fish I am very fond of, such as things like Mottled Sculpin, Rainbow Darters, and Riffle Dace. But I think for an overall answer, the Round Goby is my favorite.

Props to you for deciding to take care of him despite finding out later that he's sick.
If you wanted a second cat, you can get one that is FIV positive too, however take into account that the medical expenses are not going to be a joke.
Either way I wish you both good luck, and a long life full of love and happiness to your buddy. (Post pics?)

while hoers are majestic and elegant, donqs are their more homely and down-to-earth cousins
they are not for epic quests and glory of the battlefield, but they are hard workers you can count on to pull through when you need them tho
in the end they still have a beautiful equine soul in them, and it shines brightly if you just care enough to look
>>
>>3960109
But do they still have the deep sadness inherent within the eyes of all horses?
>>
>>3960139
Yes, but its tempered by their willingness to continue on despite it.
>>
>>3960139
No, because donqs can satisfy their longing by indulging in their bloodlust
>>

Congratulations, I hope it works out for you.

They were retarded fish that evolved sentience through pure chance and went extinct because they were naturally vegan trannies, while ancap colored birds dominated the world because they would also eat meat. The ancap birds were nice to their tranny friends, but even with that, the liberals went extinct since they refused to be straight and eat meat. At least a few of them could have, but no. The last one died as a crazy old lady with a "furbaby" pet. Serina is a clever right wing parable about how traps can help chuds take over the world, and how the chuds have nothing to fear because they will die out if you coddle them instead of exposing them to harsh reality that might god forbid make them evolve.

Is there a pet that will hunt down the insects that keep invading my home (flies, ants, mosquitoes etc.) but will neither wreck my home nor get itself killed when let out of its enclosure?

Are reptiles a good option? I know almost nothing about how to care about them.

I used to have a cat and it occasionally ate a fly or two, but I need a more reliable insect killer.

You could probably release a few jumping spiders or wolf spiders or something, or get some web building ones and get them to set up in areas where the insects are coming in from
