Getting really sick of this capeshit in my insects. Can these fuckers finally name a fly after Stanley Kubrick or something?

And calling it "the deadpool fly." Anything that actually gets discussed will be called something modern and relevant, and no there aren't or you'd source literally even a single one.

Depends on what you consider "dangerous"

Fed animal is more likely to ambush correctly and score a kill but it will also easily give up if you put up a fight
Starving animal might fuck up due to exhaustion but if it has a chance to get a meal, it is not giving up
>>
>>3447598
>when fed?
You mean by people? Fed gators and bears can be aggressive and belligerent
>>
>>3447618
>>3447619

Which one would you rather fight hand to hand

A starved bear or a fed bear
>>
>>3447620
specifically with bears i'd go for the starved simply because he is weaker, also they are omnivores and scavangers mostly so him attacking me isnt the only option it has, so it might give up if i hurt it.
If you'd say tiger or jaguar, i'd go with fed since then i can just annoy him up to the point it leaves (lets me honest i couldnt fight it at all, annoying them by throwing rocks or smthing is the only chance i got), starved jaguar wouldn't

One of my cats died today. She declined rapidly to the point where she wasn't even really there anymore towards the end. It's hard because we were hoping she would improve (she was getting treatment) but instead she just kept getting worse - in trying to help her, did we just prolong her suffering? I don't know if we made the right choice.
Anyway, give your animals a hug or pet from me. Take good care of them, you're all they have in the world.
>>
Sorry, anon, you did what you had to. It sucks either way, I've euthanized several animals and although they may have suffered less, but I'll never be able to let go of the pain of having taken their lives.
I don't think having a vet do it is any different, regarding culpability.
>>
>>3447250
sounds like you did the right thing at the right time anon
>>
>>3447250
IKTF anon.

Don't bother yourself with the question if you did the right choice at the right time or not, but think of the good life you gave that cat.

Maybe get another cat and treat it as well as you treated your current cat.

Am I in a list now? Also, send tips to end invasive species that kill my birdies. I plan to place some aluminum butterflies in my trees to stop cats from climbing them. I love birds singing and since some asshole abandoned cats near my house there's been fewer and fewer birds each day :(

How many times do you kiss your pet per a day?

Me, I kiss my dogs and my cat a million times a day.

Why yes, my favorite Dino is in fact Masiakasaurus. The bladed death of madagascar.

I'm finally moving out of my parents' house and managed to find an apartment with no dog restrictions so I'm getting my first dog and really want it to be a greyhound.

What are /an/'s best tips for a first time dog owner?

do you mean a Italian reyhound or regular greyhound? an Italian greyhound would be fine in an apartment.
>>
>>3447368
really? i've read they do pretty well in smaller spaces like apartments. i was reading about retired racing hounds though, so maybe it's just for those specifically.

That is a Brown Reclusive Bedbug Spider. It has a very painful bite but besides that isn't harmful. They primarily eat bedbugs and live near your bed.
