Re: Betta splendens

He is very beautiful! Could he possibly have been nipped by your filter? I suspect that happened to Otto once. We also used to purchase 'ghost shrimp' for him to kill and eat, half a dozen or so at a time, in his 10 gallon tank. It was either a nip from one of those or the filter that trimmed one of...

Re: Inevitable Legal Involvement and Nasty People

I've got two nice neighbors and one busybody with a million children (on the street behind us, we're separated by a 6 foot privacy fence) - I know she's going to be all 'OH MY LANDS THINK OF THE CHILDREN' and putting them into little plastic anti-rabies suits if she sees him, so I'm skipping the int...

Re: Inevitable Legal Involvement and Nasty People

I've had this concern regarding the raccoon I'm adopting in a few weeks. I think the best thing might be to introduce yourself and say something to the effect of 'Hey, this is me, I'm adopting a fox, I've got all his paperwork and vet work in order. She/He does not have rabies or any other illness y...

Re: National Geographic's Recent Article

"Is it OK to have a pet monkey? No primate species should ever be kept as a pet. They have very special needs. These are highly social animals. They need to be kept with others of their own kind; that's just critical to their psychological well-being." This shows such bias right off the ba...

Re: Do you think Dogs are overrated as pets?

I'll hear people go on about their dogs, and I just want a chance to talk about my snakes! That's actually something I like about dogs: their relatability (and yes I accept that as a word, spell check be damned!). I would often tell people that my rats were a lot like dogs. That would make them see...

Re: Killing Feral Cats

National Geographic says we're looking at an American feral population of 70 million...it's so vast. I think TNR
is what a well intended person thinks when they see a dozen cats living behind a local motel and wants to
help them. Then you try to implement it, and get crushed by reality. :wall:

Re: Killing Feral Cats

Now what I mean by it "not being my problem" is that I would never pay for a trap-neuter-release operation. I'm all for culling, and I feel that's the humane thing to do in this situation. If other people want to try doing a trap-neuter-release they can with their own money. Someone had j...

Yeah, that's what you need, pragmatism and the strength of your convictions. I'm just too emotional. What would have been great would be a hav-a-hart style trap with a squeeze cage attached that you could take out into the field, and a mobile euth kit, which would really only need to be two shots pe...

Re: Garter Snake Injured

Really, just a regular Pennsylvania toad? Guess we got lucky, he turned out fine. :)
Figured they use the 'Dawn' on all the oil slick animals, so it would be safe.

Re: Killing Feral Cats

If you dont have the cold streak, leave the killing to someone else. It will break you eventually.
It's not something you can withstand long term. Are you in an urban area?

The feral cat situation is the most heartbreaking, horrible situation. I've supported a dozen colonies in several different states, and really, the majority of the ferals I've supported are not barn cats! The colonies begin like this: Some nudniks let their cats wander outside at night, unaltered. T...

Re: Garter Snake Injured

Hey there, I had a toad injured by a weed whacker in my garden last year. I used soapy warm water to clean the wound and applied Neosporin (WITHOUT the analgesic, was worried about the weight ratio being so low). Took about 3 days, and it healed really neatly. Good luck! And thank you for looking ou...

Re: Seeking Raccoon information.

Thank you for the reply. I've read what I can find on the internet, I guess my primary concern is being unprepared in some fundamental way. One of the cats will be delighted, absolutely delighted to have a playmate, the other is an ice princess who is likely to be very angry and take the complete av...

Seeking Raccoon information.

Hello! I'm new to the forum and looking for any and all information about what to expect while living with an adolescent, and adult raccoon. I've raised infants who were waiting for a place at the rehab, but feel I'm ready to adopt one of my own. I'm dead sick of saying goodbye! :) The internet is f...
