What are some strange thing's you have noticed about the weather lately, locally or internationally?

>Over here in Eastern Central US I've noticed strange cloud formations
>Seems to be less hot than usual
Could this be because of lockdowns and from the lack of flights around the world for a significant time?

Two weeks worth of rain have now concluded as of Wednesday this week.
Remnants from the tropical storm. Shit was insane, and now we're two thirds of the way through summer and its in the mid 70s, no more big heat it seems.
Sorta sad in a way.

I accidentally scared a monarch butterfly last year.

I think that turned into a typhoon in Japan
Reminds me of that Robot Chicken sketche where the kids are squishing butterflies and catastrophes are happening in other countries.

Just got a new phone and discovered that it can take slow motion videos, then turn them into gifs. It's fun taking videos of my birds squabbling.
We had a hail storm a few days ago, and it destroyed a robin nest. The parents never came back so I tried to save the one baby that survived the storm, but he didn't make it either. I'm sorry.

where are the other legs in the pic I posted?
Maybe front legs under the body, and the two pairs of rear legs are together at the back. It looks like they are freshly hatched and maybe a bit 'wonky', as the gold things are eggs.

damn so they came out of the eggs... honestly didn't see that coming

>snakes going out of their way, risking their lives and wasting their energetically expenisive venom just to spite some trekking faggot
Natural selection punishes reckless and stupid behaviour pretty harshly, any snake species that did this shit would clear itself out of existence.
>Also anyone found the moccasin yet?
Kind of late, but lower left area? I see something dark and snakey in the grass.
Worked frequently in Florida swampland and can state with 100% confidence that NO snake will "chase you". Rattlers, cottonmouths, even gators all try to avoid you.
>news report of man who was attacked by a mountain lion while hiking in caifornia.
>that dude lied because he didn't get a video of it!!

You're a pathetic and small minded excuse of a human who cannot function on their own. You're the type that would burn a scientist at the stake for suggesting the earth is round because the majority said it was flat.
YouTube has become your God and the mere thought of questioning internet "facts" has become blasphemy, even when confronted by testimony of an individual that has experienced an event firsthand.

I explained the circumstances of when a cottonmouth chased me.
It happened.
You can accept that or continue living life with your head buried in the sand.
I’m with this guy he is stating something obvious that even >>3873461 agreed with the circumstances. But by >>3873405 logic I would have to ask if >>3874328 has a video of him working in the Florida swampland with snakes and alligators I question his word because he failed to find the snake. I would post the picture of the snake after he came towards me about 15 feet mouth open, but the last time I posted a photo of a dead animal I got a three day ban.

every argument against zoophilia is also a hidden argument for veganism. both say that you shouldnt ruin the life of an animal for your own hedonistic enjoyment when there are viable alternatives, like dating humans instead and eating ßoy / geneticly engineered meat replacements.
any other "argument" against the above works only on basis that animal welfare doesnt matter, and by appealing to a man-made abstract idea of "natural order" founded on religious thinking that is not even consistent across the globe.

the madness with this goes even further: Man has sex with a goat? kill both. why? because the guy had non-reproductive sex, and killing him will keep him from passing on his degenerate genes! why kill the goat? to protect the poor animal from rape!
human life is sacred it seems, unless some nutjob decides someone makes the wrong decisions about their own life.

Also imagine being against pedophilia while eating a steak cut from a human child. wouldnt that be morally sound? I'm a vegan non-furry btw, dont know if that matters.

You should ask your vet for a double dose of euthasol, and your vet should follow your example. I hope you both die a horrible, gruesome death soon. I mean it.

Help me anons, this is a fucking nightmare. What the fuck should I do? I'm on the end of my nerves. The cat is totally okay, have good appetite and shit, but my house is in ruins because of the insane amount of mucus. She already had some sneeze problem when she was just a kitten, but after a shot she got totally healthy.

Good question. In my knowledge it mostly make eye symptoms. Her eye is also leaking, but not as much as her nose, so dunno.
Definitely seek a different vet for second opinion.
there's no cure for feline herpes. if you can try to supplement with l-lysine in her food (they make a powder supplement for cats), but some cats are just going to have chronic sniffles. Shame your vet wont explain this to you
>still giggling about cat herpes
its a true thing, I volunteer at a shelter and cats that catch it before they can get vaccinated end up with it in their systems for life, but most don't have symptoms, some have chronic sniffles like OP's cat, some get bad teeth. It's basically a diagnosis of elimination. It's never life threatening but can be annoying

there may be other things you can try like trying to sanitize your home, make sure there's no mold sources, get an air purifier. Maybe even try a nebulizer to at least temporarily clear kitty up. Make sure he has lots of fluids. I understand you're not made of money, so do what you can, these may or may not work but they wont hurt
>I'm no vet but since when is mucus a symptom of herpes?
it's rare but it is a thing, seen it at the shelter, one of the cats there just could never get over the sniffles. Thank god it's not FeLV, those are the saddest cases because they're almost always the most friendly cats, and they're going to die in like 2 to 5 years

tell me about your petting zoo adventures, /an/
As a kid I used to go to a petting zoo with my mom.There was a white goat there, he was an asshole. Suddenly he was removed, then I became sad.
When I was young I went to a petting zoo with my brother. They had bags of popcorn you were allowed to feed to the animals.
As we went to the goat enclosure we encountered people running out but we just ignored that.
As soon as we were inside and tried to feed the goats they started swarming us (at least two dozens) and I quickly handed the popcorn bag over to my brother and fled.
From outside I watched as my brother got swarmed and overwhelmed by the goats until one big billy goat just rammed him in the stomach and he threw the bag away. Then they backed off and he could escape too.

Why dont you own a protection dog, anon? If you live in urban area, don't you care about your home, your family and about yourself? Don't you might be arround blacks or other criminals?
30 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
if you are around the dog, of course
but you can't train a dog not to eat something fling over a fence, when you are not around

there is 0 ways to prevent this
I dunno, moving to a non-shithole country might prevent it.
in a "non shithole country" you don't need a protection dog then
The problem is you can live in a 'non-shithole country', but there will still be criminal elements who seek to deprive you of your property. If you're worried that someone might poison your animal, do not leave it outside unattended for any lengthy period. Those around you who seek to burglarize you will simply see a dog, a housepet, but one they still don't wish to contend with because it's a living, breathing burglar alarm and has the absolute potential to fuck their day up. Give them no opportunity to harm your dog.
The best guard animal isn't the GSD/malinois/rottweiler/mastiff/insert stereotypically used breed here that's left to roam the yard and look tough. It's the one who you include as part of the family, whom they feel a deep seeded obligation to defend.My dog is not a trained guard dog, but her breed predisposes her to guarding behavior, and if I have her out in public, if we're approached by someone she's never seen or interacted with, she puts herself between them and me. I did not train this, this is just what she does.
Keeping your dog inside when you're not in the house is a good way of preventing this.
