Okay so this is just basically something that happened to me today. I saw an ad on craigslist (pic related) while browsing (kitten season is starting and at least once a year someone posts on craigslist about how they need a litter of newborns cared for. something I have experience with and can help and afford) So I saw this ad, and was shocked. One can assume if she's the last of 12, they were all younger than 5 weeks when they were rehomed. I asked why she was rehoming them so early and she said her mother was ill and they didn't have time for them. I asked her if she knew it was detrimental to the puppies health to be separated from their mother that early. She said yes and thank you for your concern now you're harassing me and I'm calling the cops. I told her To go right ahead and call them and they'd be taking her animals away from her because of neglect. She then told me I didn't have a life because I was a vet tech and not a vet and I knew nothing about the puppies because the mother had died and she's following the advice of her own veterinarian. I called the vet she told me they used and they don't recognize the case (I didn't have a last name) but they wouldn't recommend getting rid of puppies that early. She asked me if I wanted the puppy and I said I'd take her but I wouldn't pay a "rehoming fee" but I would get her all the necessary vetting she needed at the appropriate age. She then tells me "that's not necessary, she has a vet and I have no problem with nursing her." But originally, her mother was sick and no one had time for them. So /an/ I come to you. I understand you can't save them all and I refuse to pay for a puppy from what is most likely a byb so she can fund more ill bred and neglected litters. I'm just bummed this all happened.

I have a 10 week old puppy, I know she is still teething, I have many teething toys bought for her, can anyone give me some tips on how to discourage her from biting and my pants and hands all the time?

so is this shit safe to use? recently got a new kitten, he seems to be about a month and a half old and seems to gobble up wet food just fine but my mom and sister insist that kittens needs milk, so i bought this to get them off my back. can't really find any reviews for the stuff so i can't tell if i'm going to give the cat something that may mess it up. Last time i bought something that wasn't regular cat food at a petstore was flea treatments that ended up costing me 600 dollars in medical fees trying to fix the damage a small teaspoon had caused.

wow

Hey /an/, The girlfriend and I were tossing around the idea of adopting a puppy, and we settled on the idea of an English Bulldog. I know getting puppies from a store is a bad call because of puppy farms/shit, but when I look online for puppy listings, they're all like 1.5-5K$. Are dogs really that expensive? How do I find a puppy that doesn't cost more than my car?

So me and my wife closed on our first home a few weeks ago. Now we are thinking about getting a dog. I grew up with dogs, my wife had a pet cat as a kid. Any way, she is kinda nervous around dogs, but really wants one right now. However she is kinda picky on what breed to get. Any way we recently saw a bernese mountain dog puppy, and she fell in love. I really don't know much about them, just that they are big dogs, that have many health issues as they age. Overall just want to know how they are as family dogs. My wife is currently 3 months pregnant, so we will have a small child around our dog. Are they good with kids? And how energetic are they as a breed? Mind you we have like a quarter of a acre for our dog to run around in.

I'll be getting a cat tomorrow, I never had a cat or any pet for my own and I'm really nervous, she's just a couple of months old. Can I get some advice? Also, she needs a name, I'm thinking about "Kyra" or "Hiigara". Pic related, is her. Thanks in advance.

What gender is this kitten? Its 8 weeks. We were told it was female from the people who gave it to us but I'm not so sure. I just want a second opinion. Sorry the photo is a little blurry. The kitten loves to be pet hisses and growls when picked up

Hey guys, this is my new betta fish. I haven't had one since I was little, and decided recently I wanted a fish again. I've had him for about a week now, and I haven't seen him eat ANYTHING. I've seen him take something, then spit it right back out. I have tried flakes and pellets. For the most part he has been very active. When he sees me, he swims around and doesn't act sick at all. But today he has been REALLY lethargic, and I might just be paranoid but I think I'm seeing changes about his coloring around his head. He's in a one gallon tank with an oxygen stone and a light. Just something cheap and simple I picked up. I make sure to scoop out uneaten food (the pellet in the pictures was just given to him about an hour ago), and the water was treated before adding him into the tank. He was fine for a good solid week, and now he's just not the same fish. I'll post follow-up pictures, but my camera is shitty and I'm not sure you can see anything about him. I just need some help ;_; I saved him from a shitty little cup at walmart, and I kinda want him to live and be comfortable and happy. Wut do?

Weird urinating problem with my cat

3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I adopted my cat about 2 years ago from a shelter and have been regularly taking her to the vet. I've moved to a new place in January and I haven't yet to really set up any new appointments at the closest vet. Anyways, I've started working a second job a month ago, and since then she's been urinating on my belongings, but ONLY on things that i've worn or sweated on. (ie: bed sheets, work pants/shirts occasionally shoes) I really don't know what's going on with her, and i was hoping that maybe someone here may have had a similar experience with one of their cats. and for the record, i always keep her little box cleaned and clumps out and trashed. she is currently drinking the water that I drink, and eating the usual brand of cat food she likes. i havent changed anything about her diet in months. Do you think it could possibly be from me not being home as much? Before i started my second job, I was home about 3-4 days a week. does anybody have any advice?
