Married to an injury attorney who also represents dogbite victims. 8/10 calls he gets for these are pits and pit mixes. Most recent one, a baby girl got her face eaten off by a family pit. They're almost always familiar dogs to the victim, and always so gory. And these aren't "muh bad owners!!1" because really bad owners typically won't have insurance to cover this type of shit to go after (read:no case worth taking unfortunately). So just the cases he takes can be assumed the hellhounds were raised correctly. Usually "would never hurt a fly" until they do. He's even considered going dog bite full time because of how frequently they happen and because of how eager insurance companies are to settle when they see a mauled child.
We have a very nice roof over our heads almost exclusively because they are a reliably shitty, remarkably aggressive, type of dog.

But it's the owner, dontcha know.

So my cat has energy for days and he’s gotten bored of his mouse and feather toys, what are some really good puzzle toys I can buy/make for the little fucker

There's a particular type of bacteria on a cat's claw from their poop that can cause blindness. Every eye doc will give antibiotic eye drops the second you mention cat scratches.

And some supposed-to-be regenerative drops.
I need to apply it all every 2hrs.
The cream one is hard when you have to force-open the eye that gives you a hellish amount of pain.

It's a pretty sizeable terrarium. 50 gallon-ish. She isn't aggressive, just extremely timid. Petrified by fear every time she notices me. Though she is hand tame. She's a Syrian hamster. Maybe the dwarfs are more sociable?

nah dwarfs are the least sociable. Campbell's dwarfs and winter whites tend to be the most aggressive. Roborovski dwarfs are terrified of everything and will immediately run into a hole with any slight sounds. Syrians are the most tameable and sociable, but yeah what you're describing is also pretty normal. They're just giga prey animals and not social in the first place. Your cage is definitely big enough

i just saw this pigeon in the middle of the footpath while biking home. it was not moving at all, not even a flinch when cars drove past. i went home and walked back with a little bowl of seeds and water. it wouldn't drink or eat, not even a sip when i brought the bowl to its beak. the traffic was getting too much so i wrapped it in a towel and brought it home. no visible injuries or blood. it walked a little and fluttered its wings. i used a flashlight and searched for tics, parting its feathers on its head and back, nothing. right now it is resting with its eyes closed. breathing looks strong and steady. it remained calm when i stroked it. any advice on what to do? i am hoping it is just shock or something. at the very least it is warm and safe from further harm now

When he was young he drank almost two litres of milk. He looked liked he was going to explode and my dad said would probably die. I was distraught, but he not only didn't die he seemed to be satisfied and content. When I was 15 I visited Japan and returned with a lot of chocolate in my suitcase. He somehow got into it and ate a lot of it. He was totally unaffected, so from then on I realised all those rules about what you can feed your dog are bullshit. He ate heaps of chocolate, onions, avocado etc and it never affected him in a bad way.
>>
>>4310445
He also ate chicken bones and any sort of seafood, fish, crab, squid, shark, sting ray, fresh and saltwater eel, octopus. He ate all their guts raw too which I fed to him as I prepared them. Like I said, the only thing he absolutely refused to eat was plain dog food or lettuce for some reason.

Humans also love those same foods, despite the same limitations applying to them.
They also love chocolate, hamburgers, ice cream, soda, and countless other things that aren't naturally occurring either.
