Bears and Crocs for the amphibious victory. Assuming one can choose the terrain for the battle, I’d like to post up on a flat island in the middle of a lake. Fortifications (A simple wooden tower)and traps (Punji stakes/hidden deep holes) would be on the island. Bears wait at the water’s edge and the crocs patrol the waters. I’m plinking the hunter with some bolt action roof camping. Any eagle coming my way will get shot down with aerial automatic shotgun fire. Rats will be picked off by crocs and what’s left of them will be taken care of by my bears and shotgun fire. The deep water fucks bulls, wolves, lions, and gorillas indefinitely. Amphibious Victory AF

I think we have to obey the numbers here, no matter what our judgement tells us.

Can we get some more love for these amazing dogs, please? They don’t get as much attention by the public as other African predators, and they’re sadly endangered.

>Getting cat next week
>Have already spent 700 dollars on shit for the cat and haven't even gotten ti

I just want the kitty to have the best stuff and live a happy life but everywhere I fucking turn people are telling me to do different shit. I checked the kot thread and got some info, but it's all just a lot to take in. I'm worried he won't like me if I fucked something up :(

You should get cat grass, it's good for cats' digestion and super easy to grow. I was going to mention it to a guy in a cat thread on /b/ because his cat wanted to eat leaves but the thread got pruned for more photos of buttholes or whatever

dude you know the best cat toy ever?
a real feather srs
go outside and pick up a few dropped feathers from pigeons or birds
cats recognise the smell and go crazy attacking them
>>
>>3448239
I should do that, I know the perfect place to get feathers. My cats favorite homemade toy is made of jute twine. I made a loop at the top for my finger and then tied several long strings of jute to the loop. She likes to chase it and attack it and run her claws through the jute. I should make a new one, jute is cheap.

>Being swallowed alive by a frog is a death sentence for most insects, but one beetle species shrugs off being digested and instead finds freedom by sneaking out through its captor's anus.

>When the pond frog Pelophylax nigromaculatus was presented with the aquatic beetle Regimbartia attenuata, it quickly snapped up the beetle, swallowing it whole and alive. But the meals ended with a strange twist, researchers recently discovered.

>In most of the experiments, the beetles reappeared within six hours, slipping out of a frog's anus, or vent. Though muscles typically hold the vent tightly shut, those muscles loosen up when the frog poops; the beetles could be stimulating the frogs' defecation reflex in order to temporarily open this unusual emergency exit, according to the new study.

Most bugs die when they try to fly through my window fan. This big tubular beetle with long antennas just flied through and came out fine.
Shit he's gonna get me isn't he. He's out for revenge isn't he.

I happen to be quite fond of my pups corkscrew piggy tail. It's not going anywhere

>>3447213
So you cut off their leg instead? Sad!

my granny had a boxer that was unclipped and his tail used to shatter decorations off the Christmas tree and beat the mother fuck out of your shins. it was pretty endearing and everybody loved toby

>>3447213
i will cut off the tail and balls

Some country people explained why dogs sometimes get their tail cut short. If they have a really long tail and are excitable they might nick the tip of their tail on something and there is an artery that goes all the way to the end. So it starts bleeding way more than you'd expect and the dog keeps wagging while whipping blood everywhere. Meanwhile you're wrestling with the dog and it thinks that's fun so it wags even more while getting more blood on you and everything else.

Hey /an/ first time posting here. My girlfriend and I are having a strange issue with her cat at night time and I was hoping maybe one of you would have some advice on the matter. Backstory:
>Cat owned by gf and her mom before I met her
>Mom's house is very rural with tons of forested areas for cat to explore daily
>Meet gf, she moves in with me
>Current apartment doesn't allow animals so cat stays with mom at her house
>Eventually move to a new place which allows pets
>Bring cat to new place in an urban environment
>Cat has been very scared of new home as there are new sights and sounds she is not familiar with

For the first night the cat stayed under our bed the entire time. After a few days she is slowly coming out of our room for short periods of time to wander but she usually will get spooked by a car driving by and bolt back to our room. We have tried to get her slowly used to our neighborhood but as soon as we bring her near the front door she freaks out and runs back to the room.

Gave her some chicken and water and a place to sleep, but I also have a Beagle dog in the garden. They haven't met yet. How to get the dog used to the cat and also what else can I do?
>>
>>3447425
sterilise it
>>
>>3447435
This.
Get it spayed and also post a picture of her.
The dog will get used to her fast, obviously punish any aggressive behaviour.
