    Semi- Feral Cat Looks Overweight

    Hello all! As some of you might now, I have a semi-feral cat named Pants. He is not entirely trusting of me- He’ll usually only let me pet him when there’s food. He currently lives outside. He has a little lean-to shed that he stays in pretty much all day. Another thing to note is that this cat...

    Picky Eater vs. Wet Food

    Hello, everyone! One of my cats, Eden, doesn't seem to be fond of wet food, despite her trying different flavors, variations, etc. I know that wet food is obviously much more nutritional than dry food, but this girl refuses to eat anything but dry food. Her water intake seems sufficient, so my...

    No Notification Alerts

    I haven't been consistently recieving the alerts for people quoting me, tagging me, replying to a watched thread, or reacting to my posts. I thought at first that it was because maybe I hadn't been active on a thread for a while, which is why I wasn't getting alerts, but thats not it as I won't...

    Post Your Different Pets Together!

    I searched for a thread like this and couldn't find one (unless I missed it!), so here we go! My dog, Fisher, and cat, Willow, are best friends. They eat together, play together, and cuddle together. Also, my kitty Bella, who crossed the rainbow bridge last year, enjoyed the company of our...

    Anybody Else do Stiching?

    I started doing embroidery this past summer as a new hobby to do doing quarantine. I find it to be a pleasant hobby while listening to music or watching tv. I'm not the greatest at it but I've managed to freehand a couple of shirts and a mask, and for Christmas Im stiching a pouch for one of my...

    Continue the Story Game!

    To start, one person writes one line of a story: For example, "Once upon a time there lived a cat who loved mice." Then, the next person posts the next one line of the story that they come up with: example, "Despite the traditional predatory nature of cats, she was friends with all of the mice...

    Depressed & Anxious Dog in Pain... What to do?

    Hello, everyone! This post is partially a question and partially a rant. We took our labrador, Fisher, to get neutered on Monday. After his surgery, the vet- long story short- told us that he couldn't find anything, meaning that the surgery was pointless. Weird, but whatever. He told us that...

    Helpless 2 Week Old Birds

    Hello, everyone! I'm dedicating this thread to documenting the story of our currently 2-week old parakeets. We have a bird aviary with (not including these baby birds) 10 birds in it. These three babies have been doing great, until yesterday morning, when I found that one of our parakeets...

    Budgies & The Air Quality

    We have 11 budgies (aka parakeets) who live in a very large cage custom-made to be outside, including 4 babies. The air quality here is so poor because of the fires, and it's really not good for them to be outside with the fires right now. We can't really bring them in- 11 parakeets inside, not...

    Kitten Always Wants to be Outside or With Me

    Willow is always darting outside whenever the door is slightly opened, or, when I'm outside (or when she's in my room, which is where she is primarily living right now) and I'm in a different room, she meows and howls for me. What do I do? I don't want her darting outside like this, and...

    Kitten Tracking Litter/Poop Around the Room...Help!

    Hello, everyone! I feel like I post every day with new questions... Hopefully, it's not too annoying. Willow has been tracking litter and (this is about to get pretty gross) poop around my room. She has somehow managed to get poop on her paws and track it all over the floor and my bed and my...

    Hello everyone! Today I was petting Willow and I saw a flea on her. This might be a stupid question, but does anybody know of any good, natural ways to eliminate fleas quickly? I've been letting her on my bed and cuddling with her. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Meet Our New Kitten!!!

    Saying no to adopting a helpless kitten living in somebody's garage is hard. Saying yes is unsurprisingly easy! A friend of ours' mom was feeding a kitten in her garage, and they needed somebody to take them, as the kitten was not receiving enough care or food, and was roaming around the...

    They Left :(

    I wasn't sure I wanted to post this, because I feel horrible about it. As some of you may remember, we adopted Pants and Mona (Mona is a complete feral and Pants is a stray) and kept them in a safe, outdoor enclosure for over a month. We opened the door to the enclosure about a week and a half...

    I love you, Bella.

    I know I'm on the late train for writing this post (it's been over a year since she passed) but as I'm still grieving her, I figured it might do me some good to vent. Bella was initially found living underneath our apartment complex about 10 years ago. We rescued her and her litter of kittens...
