    Rain frog chubs! Anyone owns these little guys?? I'm intrigued!

    Kay does anyone own these lil things? I just discovered them today and since I'm a little obsessed with little animals (I own a hamster) I'm already intrigued! They are unique lil things who require specific care from what I see on the videos too and they are INSANELY cute. Look at these...

    Tips for introducing new puppy to my anxious dog?

    I own a very sweet and loving dog who is very sensitive and anxious. He reacts fearfully to strangers, prefers routines, and prefers to stay in the house. We will be introducing a new puppy in a couple of weeks (my wife needs a dog who actually likes going for walks), and I'd appreciate some...

    Talking/communicating through pets?

    I've always had trouble speaking to my immediate family directly at home. But we had two cats growing up, one of whom I was particularly close to (and who recently passed away, unfortunately). 1.) Communication got easier if I could hold my cat, Moon, and look at him instead of my mother or...

    My dog passed away today

    My dog passed away today. I know I should feel sad, logically thinking I know I would be and I am I guess. But I don't really feel it. Death has never really been something I fully understand I guess. The thing that's hitting hardest is knowing how much this will change now. My dog has been a...

    Meet my cuddly dragon! :)

    Her name is Steely Dan (I thought she was a male, but then I found unfertilized eggs in her terrarium). I love her to pieces.

    A Warning for Pet Owners

    I just learned about this today, and while the EPA has not acted on this issue, I figured it is better to be safe than sorry. I am providing a link. Apparently there is a flea collar that is causing animals to die when they wear it! Seresto pet collars found to harm pets, humans, EPA records show

    My brother yells at video games and I have a rabbit downstairs near him.

    Hi guys, so my brother is 19 (going to be 20 in july) Now since covid-19 he has been downstairs a lot at his computer playing video games with his friends via the internet. Normally I wouldn't have a issue. But he is constantly making loud sudden noises such as loud clapping, hitting his hands...

    Sensitive to pet noises and I have pets...

    I have a sensitivity to many sounds but the worst are the sounds that cats and dogs make...I have cats and dogs. When my cats meow to demand something from me, or when my dogs whine really hurts my head and ears. One of my dogs (german shepherd lab mix) barks excessively and has a very noisy...

    Playing with cats and dogs?

    After he rolled in catnip and played in a cardboard box, he joined in for the first time ever with toys and a feather on a long pole. He didn't know how for two years, he seemed afraid and hid. Now, after watching me play with my two other cats he's learned how and seems to like to. Do you play...

    Do your pets have disorders?

    I have a cat with separation anxiety. She came into my life when she was approximately 2 years old, previously having lived in a party house with round the clock visitors and drunk people who were rowdy with her occasionally. When I got to know her at first she was very shy around other people...

    Can your pet understand you when you talk to them?

    Sometimes when I talk to my cat, Cinnamon, I feel like he understands what I'm saying. Like once he was meowing about a pile of wood that was in his favorite spot, and I said, "Don't worry, it won't be there forever." And he seemed to calm down. Anyone else's pets seem to understand what you say?

    The Jimmy Show episode 1

    My wife inadvertently ended up creating a fan club for our cat Jimmy (full name James Tiberius Kirk) on Instagram. She started keeping photos on there but forgot to make them private and now he's got a ridiculous amount of followers. At her request I started putting together some (very short)...
