  1. They most definitely do. A few months ago I drove by a red-winged blackbird repeatedly trying to help his (presumed) mate get off of the road after she was killed by a car. Did a u-turn to move her body to the grass so he could at least be safe in his mourning.

  2. Give him his own pillow. I have three extras so i have a tiny chance that mine won’t just steal it while i am using it

  3. Ya know, cats love sitting in boxes far too small for them...lol

  4. If they're in a pet store, unfortunately I'd recommend not buying them. More rabbits will be bred and sold as long as consumers keep paying for them. There are too many rabbits in shelters already.

  5. Way too many! My local shelter currently has more than 20 rabbits for adoption

  6. 99% of the time, products like ours are machine made (though our management has deemed our factory too prestigious to machine make anything). There are less than 10 factories in the world that handmake what we do.

  7. Op you're looking for a new job right?

  8. I’m one of maybe a third of the staff whose jobs aren’t as physically taxing. I’m chronically ill and didn’t finish high school so I’m trying to be content with having any job at all, though it’s not working

  9. No. I’m good with kids, I like hanging out with my nephew, but for like a couple hours once every few weeks. Any more than that is just overwhelming and makes me angry or sad, and I would never want a potential kid of mine to feel like those things would be their fault.

  10. it always takes some time to adjust to changes, especially big changes like bringing a new pet into your life. it’s understandably a difficult time and I think that’s something lots of people can relate to. in the grand scheme of things, a few weeks isn’t very long to get used to doing something entirely different every day (cat care). it takes a little while to get settled into a new routine, and you might simply need some more time to get used to what being a cat owner entails. it’s definitely something that gets easier as it becomes more of a routine.

  11. if shelters are full, maybe you could try talking to community members or local rescues to see if anyone would be interested in adopting some of the friendlier/less feral cats? probably won’t entirely fix anything, but fewer cats around the area might make other neighbours slower to get annoyed or potentially hurt them. good luck!

  12. one of my cats does this quite a bit too, though his reasoning for it is different every time. sometimes it’s because he wants us to pet him while he’s in a different area or position, sometimes he’s trying to get us to play with him, sometimes he’s simply had enough physical attention for the moment and is ready to be left alone.

  13. Until the cat gets salmonella or gets startled and kills the lizard.

  14. Yep. Mine was hit by a car when she was a year old. Our other cats stay inside now and are perfectly content with it. They no longer get in fights with neighbourhood cats, don’t kill nearly as much wildlife, and can’t be eaten by coyotes or an owl.

  15. We bred her with our orange boy so he's getting fixed first.

  16. her being an indoor cat has very little to do with why it’s

  17. Intentionally breeding more cats into existence while newborns who already exist are euthanized in shelters is animal cruelty, plain and simple. Get your cat fixed.

  18. Unspayed cats are at a much greater risk of dying of ovarian and mammarian cancer. There are enough feral cats and kittens being euthanized in overcrowded shelters because there aren’t enough homes for the massive overpopulation of cats. Spaying your cat is healthcare and saves so many lives.

  19. Context: this sweet baby walked into our lives. We took her to the vet. She doesn't have a chip and no one has responded to found cat posters. We would like to keep her. We think she is pregnant and we are moving across the country in 3 weeks. The hotel and Airbnb we're staying in for the first month will allow cats but I feel like they probably will not allow for her to give birth there. I would like to keep her. Is there a way for us to have her give birth somewhere else and adopt her after? Or and organization that can help us in the meantime? I'm at a loss and I don't want to lose her.

  20. You could try contacting some rescues and shelters near you, but most of them are overflowing right now and I wouldn’t hold out too much hope for that

  21. Wanted to make a cake for my stepdad for father’s day, but I’m vegan and he has celiac and diabetes. Found a

  22. It turned out better than we expected! It tasted pretty good, though we added vanilla and oat milk to the frosting, though it’s texture was a little gummy but not bad. Definitely not as much as a lot of other gluten free baking i’ve had, but enough to notice. I might try baking it a bit longer at a lower temperature next time, but it was a pretty good cake overall, not even just compared to other recipes i’ve tried with similar restrictions

  23. You could humanely trap them (think a live raccoon trap), and bring them to a shelter or see if you can find someone you know who would adopt the cat.

  24. As the other commenter stated, yes they do! Hormone blockers usually take a few weeks or months for the effects to kick in, and periods will resume when they are stopped

  25. So you take blockers for 10 years and at 26 you can suddenly have your puberty again?

  26. What if someone takes hormone blockers for 10-15 years. Would puberty start up again if they changed their mind?

  27. Smelling each other’s butts as a greeting

  28. Get him fixed, sounds like he’s marking his territory. Neutering him will make him less inclined to continue doing so, as will it protect him from potential health conditions including testicular or prostate cancer and lessening the number of kittens born into the community.
