  1. Turtles & Tortoises
    Does anyone know anything about a alligator snapping turtle? I have looked at several websites and all of them have said it was safe to keep red ear sliders and them together. I also called the local zoo and they said as long as there wasnt a huge size difference it would be fine. I just...
  2. Degu Discussion
    For you who have been around a while, you might recall when i picked up 5 Degus in a tupperware container that were dropped off at my local animal control (dog pound). The story was some kids dumped them there saying their "roommate moved out and left these rats". the container didn't have a...

  5. Dogs
    Two disclaimers before I continue: 1. I am a firm believer that pitbulls are not bad by nature, but irresponsible humans have given them a bad name. 2. Tucker is a pit mix, so I obviously have nothing against the breed. That said, I do not blame the dog at all. I am furious with the owner...

  8. Dogs
    It has been an emotional weekend. Please keep us and Colleen in your thoughts. On Friday, I got a phone call from Laura (the foster) asking if we could find it in our hearts to give the dog back because she missed her so much. We talked for a long time, and I told her how happy Colleen was...

  10. Cats
    Anyone have any advice on trying to adopt out an older kitten (almost adult cat now)? We found Sebastian almost 9 months ago. Originially thought we'd like to keep him, and realized it wasn't going to work a few months later. Unfortunately, the shelters around here have been overflowing with...
  11. Vents and Rants
    Some people should not have pets!! I live in an apartment that allows large dogs and as a whole the community is very cool they even built a fenced in dog park so they dogs could play outside. So a good majority of the residents have dogs of some kind, any where from pugs to great danes...

    hello. :) does anybody know how long kittens stay together in the wild? i've found some that are about 5/6 months old and i am wondering if it is best to leave them alone for the winter if we can't catch them all (as i live in northeast usa). i know they will huddle together for warmth- they...
  14. General Animal Discussion
    Note: This is an accurate account of what happens... If you are easily upset, don't read it. A mother and her young son entered a small pet store one day. They soon saw a baby guinea pig in a small cage with no hay. “Mommy! Look!,” cried the young child with glee. “Can I get it? Can I mommy...
  15. Animal Welfare & Legal Issues
    I know this has been asked a million times before, but where can I find info on what my legal rights are concerning the kids next door sticking their fingers thru the fence. We ask them umpteen times a day not to do it and the dogs go berserck. The dogs completely ignore the kids until they...
