  • Is having pets a form of slavery?

    Best answer: Lol no??? Pets are DOMESTICATED. They can't survive in the wild for long on their own. Hence they need humans to help. Yes they have natural instincts, but their bodies have adapted to being cared for for over centuries. unless you are bullying/harming your pet or you have ill intentions. then it is not slavery. show more

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has had experiences with cats and rabbits living together. I have a 12 year old cat, she's has been around other animals in the past but for quite some time now hasn't had any interaction with other animals and has been the only pet. I have my heart on getting a rabbit, but unsure of how my cat is going to react, she's has a kindhearted temperament but to humans only and she is a little territorial. From previous experience, she was always boss if I introduced her to other animals she'd slap them around a bit, give a hiss and steer clear but in a way I guess it was her way of letting them know that "I'm boss." I'm worried she may do the same. I have had pet rats, as a good example, now she hates them as she got too close and my rat bit her and she never went near it again lol but in that aspect what do you think? Also, I know rabbits can be toilet trained and I do know that rabbits cannot use clumping litter but in saying that how would you keep litter boxes separate and keep kitty out of bunny's litter box? Any advice would be greatly appreciated thanks heaps in advance.

  • Can a dog and rabbit mate?

    Best answer: I have seen dogs mate with many species. Not sure if it could fit its penis into a rabbit tho. Maybey if you stretch the rabbits anus or vagina a bit and grease it up and have a small dog it might make the "knot" The rabbit will not get pregnant because the animals are too dissimilar.

I have had rabbits in the past and I love them and know lots about caring for them and how much effort it takes to take care of it. I have heaps of free time for the next year as I m having a gap year but after that I was planning on going to uni, and having a bunny would rule out any chance of living on campus to meet people etc. sorry thing is long but I don t know what to do I think a bunny companion would be really good for my mental health and bring me lots of joy I m just so scared that it will stop me from having opptunities in the future :(

    The dog is his neighbors and he watches her half of the time, he also has a cat. The dog has food allergies, and super sensitive skin. THE VET diagnosed her, she even received pills for the itching, she s always scratching and biting and most of the time it s after he feeds her, he gives her things like French fries, mc Donald s, bread, chips, gives them dairy, milk, pizza. THE WORST KINDS OF FOOD. The cat also eats all of this junk food as well. Everyone tells him it s not healthy for them and he doesn t listen, he says "it s fine, they like it, I love them, they re not gonna get sick" he thinks he s always right and even goes against what the vet says. I tell him they can get diabetes, if this stuff is unhealthy for us how does he think it affects them? I tell him they can develop so many health issues and he is so stubborn! Last night his cat couldn t use the bathroom and puked up all of the milk he gave to her and then he kept feeding her crap. I feel so bad for them.

    Trixie is my 7month old lbino Ferret. I rescued her a few months back. Tonight she starting hacking up a storm. She threw up, and in the orange bild I found a piece of her hammock. She pooped and peed, all healthy then went to sleep. She has woken up three times since each time revealing another piece of her hammock. She seemed pretty miserable but as of now is back to chewing on her cage and wanting to play. How do I stop this from happening again? I don't want to deal with a blockage I'm not sure if she is done vomkting, her stool has been healthy.

  • Rabbit has poop stuck to butt?

    Best answer: You must be *very* careful because rabbits have very thin and delicate skin. The skin can tear if it is pulled. The best way to remove dried on poo is to get a shallow plastic container, latex-type gloves, and warm water.

    Best answer: You must be *very* careful because rabbits have very thin and delicate skin. The skin can tear if it is pulled.

    The best way to remove dried on poo is to get a shallow plastic container, latex-type gloves, and warm water. Put only about 1" of water in the tub. *ONLY* bunny's butt will be getting wet (paws may too).

    Use the warm water to gently massage around the fur that has the poo to loosen it. Be careful not to pull too hard or the skin could tear.

    Gently work it all clean then dry bunny's butt (and paws) well. Never soak a rabbit. This is just a butt bath.

    Once that is done, you'll need to figure out what is causing the mushy poos. A rabbit should not have poo on its fur. If it does, it usually means something is off or wrong with its diet. Take a look here to compare bunny's current diet with what a good diet should look like:

    There have been multiple questions I've seen lately from pet owners saying they don't have a lot of money at the moment to take their pet to the vet and people immediately comment saying the person is just too lazy to take the animal. Other people comment saying that they are neglectful and shouldn't have gotten a pet if they couldn't afford it, but plenty of people get pets when they are well off then life happens and they run into a tight budget for a couple weeks it's not the person's fault. Other times the treatment for what is wrong with the pet can be way more expensive then what most people, even owners to regularly take the pet to the vet. All I'm asking is why are people so quick to judge others who come here looking for actual advice on what to do?

    Best answer: Sea monkeys are brine shrimp and actually require specialized care to live long. They need the right salinity in their water and a lot of aeration.

You need to do water changes and they need at least 5-10 gallons to keep the water clean and healthy. They can actually live almost a year if taken care of properly. At that point you might as well get a couple small minnows or something instead. You could try a small insect like a spider or pill bug, maybe an ant colony. Garden snails or pond snails.

    Best answer: It sounds like you've got a decent handle on the pros and cons of each. Ferrets do smell so that is understandably your last choice.

    Best answer: It sounds like you've got a decent handle on the pros and cons of each. Ferrets do smell so that is understandably your last choice.

    Rabbits may or may not be interactive, but even those that are, are only so during certain times of their choosing. In other words, just because you happen to have some time to spend with them when you get back from class (for example) doesn't mean that bunny will be open or receptive *at that time.* Rabbits keep their own schedule, so if your free time doesn't coincide with bunny's time schedule, bunny will not be enticed to interact. Rabbits are also considered to cost more to maintain than a large breed dog.

    Cats are definitely simpler, as you have already stated. A cat would meet all your criteria with ease of maintenance, relatively low cost and willingness to be interactive.

    She leaves it in a cold dark room for days on end, with no light what so ever. She leaves it in a cage, and I wake up at night from it banging around. It wants attention, and it wants to get out. Problem is though, she's never home. She always sleeps at her boyfriend's house, and only comes by once in a while to feed it. She even openly admitted the other day that the bunny got sick because she hadn't cleaned it's cage in a long time. She's neglecting it, it's animal abuse, and it's waking me up in the night. The catch though is, is that she snuck it in. She moved in with me last month, and she snuck the rabbit in. It's technically not allowed, and nobody knows about it. Is there anything I can do to help the rabbit without "blowing my cover" so to speak? I've already tried talking to my roommate, but she won't listen to me. What can I do?

    I live in a small house where all of my family members are currently sick (including me) and my ferrets’ cage are in the living room and I don’t want them to get sick... they have been caged for almost a week now and I do not like it keeping them cage because they have to run and play but I do it so they do pick up any germs from objects that we have touched and might be full of germs. How can I keep my ferrets safe from the virus? And how could I possibly let them play around without them getting sick? Unfortunately i do not have any friends in the area to take them in... I would appreciate your answers :)
